fixed : Dyson Pure Cool warning to replace new filters again ?

Question :

I have a Dyson Pure Cool 2018 ( TP04 ) fan-less air cooler / purifier, and it works great – I can even  monitor & control it from the DysonLink.app on my iPhone. Now time has come to replace the HEPA and carbon filters, so I got a new set of those. I got the old wones out and put the new ones in, turned the Pure Cool back on, and now it keeps giving a ‘replace immediately’ warning again…

What is wrong ?

 

Answer :

You probably replaced both the carbonfilters and both the HEPA-filters just fine, as that is rather simple. But judging from the error message you are getting, you forgot to reset the software. To do so, do this :

  • unplug the Dyson Pore Cool 2018 ( TP04 ) from power
  • replace both carbonfilters (skip this if you just renewed them)
  • replace both HEPA filters (skip this if you just renewed them)
  • replug the power
  • switch ON (using the power button on the Pure Cool’s body)
  • press the ‘night’-button (bottom right) on the remote control until the countdown starts
  • wait for the countdown to finish
  • press the ‘left/right’-button (bottom left) on the remote control until the countdown starts
  • wait for the countdown to finish
  • you will now see green checkmarks for both filters on the display
  • press the ‘AUTO’-botton (middle right) on the remote control to put the Pure Cool back into automatic mode
  • use the DysonLink.app for further settings (like using Siri or Alexa, Google Home is currently not supported)

that’s it !

fixed : iPad “not charging” when charging cable is connected

Question :

My iPad is no longer charging when I connect it to the Lightning charger cable. I checked the cable and the charger with my iPhone, and when connected the iPhone charges without any problems. Still, whenever I connect my iPad, nothing happens… the charger is not recognised…

What can I do ?

 

Answer :

Because your charger and your Lightning charging cable are in good order (because they do charge your iPhone), there are 2 mayor options for this problem :

  1. the Lightning-port on your iPad is broken
  2. there is a lot of dust in your iPad’s Lightning-port

You should first check if your iPad’s Lightning-port is cluttered with dust by sticking a needle or paperclip’s end into the iPad’s Lightning port and gently scraping out all dust that has gathered there. You might need a torch-light to shine into the Lightning-port to make sure that all dust has been taken out. After doing so, hook up the iPad to the Lightning charger cable again… if the green battery and lightning icon appear on your iPad’s screen… if so, you have fixed this problem 😉
If not, just repeat the process by gently scaping all dust out off the Lightning-port and try again (to test).

If that still doesn’t work after multiple times of trial, you might have a hardware failure. If so, go to an AppleStore or an authorised Apple dealer (or your local Apple dealer).

 

Good Luck !

BEWARE ! : Home Video Library phishing scam eMail

! BEWARE !

today I got an eMail from Home Video Library, stating “Your video is successfully published”,

on my Mac this was immediately recognizable as a Junk-message (or rather : a Phishing Scam-message), as you can see in the picture below, but on my iPhone that wasn’t so easy to figure out… it was mainly the fact that I haven’t used Picasa in ages that made all alert bells ring in this case… and the fact that I’ve never heard of a company or service called Home Video Library raised more suspiciousness…homevideolibrary_scam…so BEWARE !

Note : this scam eMail comes in various versions, there are similar ones pretending to be from Picasa Library. More info on that can be found here.
