Need to trigger shutter on a very long selfie-stick.

https://www.ebay.com/i/401522995718?rt=nc&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D65c24b07180e46b7b372542a5b2d94ba%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D30%26sd%3D112605178987%26itm%3D401522995718

I have a Canon PowerShot 12X and hope to get a Canon SX720.

I want a really long selfie-stick I can use to dramatically change my perspective while making photos.

But I do not want to be bothered with setting a self-timer or recording it as a video, which I then need to watch to find that perfect shot, etc.

I need a trigger that will fire the shutter.

What technologies do this?

Can  I use my old camera for this? If I buy a Canon SX720, does this have the ability for this?

If Bluetooth i the trick, does this mean I need a BT trigger? Does this support Canon PowerShot 12X? Canon SX720?

Thanks

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I am needing an identification made of what appears to be like a tiny bulb with one end with 2 holes and the other end which looks like some sort of connector.  Pictures are attached to this request for review which hopefully will lead to an ID of it.

           Thank you

We are shopping around for a second hand laptop for travel in 3 months.

What's wrong with this system? Surely it is a quad i7 or it may not be?

Hi,

I have this Asus Rog G56JK laptop.

The WLAN card has been unstable for a long period now, so i decided to change it.

Can i add this network WLAN device into this ASUS laptop.

or
https://ark.intel.com/products/75442/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-3160

(Or would you suggest another ?)

Today i have this WLAN card installed

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Wireless-wifi-card-Mediatek-MT7630E-802-11b-g-n-Wi-Fi-and-Mediatek-Bluetooth-4/32417080568.html
Mediatek MT7630E 802.11b/g/n 150Mbps Wireless WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 WLAN Half Mini PCIe card

As i see the "old" card only supports b/g/n and the "new" card also supports AC.

But will my two "connection" cables support AC ?

I would like to build out a VMware Site Recovery proof of concept with LUN replication. I have a client that is running ESX vCenter 6.5 with EMC storage at present and i would like to get a test Rig up and running that would allow me to build somthing out on a very simple scale while mimicking what is in place. Does anyone have a suggestion on hardware to build this out?

thanks,

The various apartments in our residential area links up to an Intercomm
system where outside visitors could press our apartment's unit # to
communicate with us when they reach the security guard house.

Attached is the photo.

A week back, this unit turns faulty & the contractor requires $300 + to
replace it:  is this something proprietary or I can get a compatible set
from eBay to replace?   I've tried adjusting volumes & resit but no joy.

If there's compatible set for this  urmet set, pls provide me the online
link to purchase

What methods can I use to permanently disable Airplane mode within a Windows 10 laptop so that it will never become activated even if the user tries to turn it on?

Can this be done via a local group policy or some kind of script?

Hi Experts

Could you point the better strategy to defragment a HD that runs Win7 without to reformat it?

A HD fragmentation I guess is making the operation of a PC  very slow .

Is it possible to do that without to reformat the HD?

Thanks in advance!

I am looking for a dock that reads old IDE, Ultra IDE, and also old smaller laptop HDs as well as any type of SATA HDs.  I would prefer one with a USB 3.0 connection.  I've looked all over and haven't been able to find someone that offers one.  One other option that I just thought of would be to use some type of converter with it with one end of the converter going to the HD and the other end going to the dock.  Example old IDE drive connected to the converter and then the converter connected to the dock.  Please advise if you can find a dock that will connect them directly with the dock and if there are converters available, and if so, will they work with a dock.

My company has an Epson Expression 1680 scanner that has stopped working. The manual for this scanner has been attached to this question. Epson-1680-scanner-exp168uu4.pdf

We need to order a replacement scanner and have found this scanner for sale on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01K3777HS/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

(which is identified as an "EPSON 1680 - EPSON PERFECTION 1680 W/ADF" scanner.

My question about this scanner listed for sale on Amazon is whether or not it is the exact same model as our existing Epson Expression 1680 scanner.

We need to make sure that we order the exact same model scanner.

I have already asked this question on Amazon but haven't yet received a reply.

I have an EPSON Expression 1680 scanner that won't power on.

I have replaced the power cord with several known good power cords and have plugged this scanner into different power plugs but it still won't power on.

What can I do to troubleshoot or fix this issue?

Does this scanner have a fuse or similar item that can be replaced that might fix this issue?

Attached is the manual for this scanner.

Hi Experts

Could you point the better tool/ stretegy to backup a 500 GB HD on a external HD?

My purpose is to format HD and then reinstall Win7.

I guess there are tools to automatize the task and avoid to copy and paste every folder from the HD to an external HD.

Thanks in advance!

I have this URL:

What other related tools are there for me to compare against this one.

Thanks

Hi,

We are currently creating a conference room to be used for meetings.

We plan to have a large display installed on the wall, board room table in middle of the room and cables running from the display to the board room table.

We plan to have many cables coming to the board room table which can be used for people's laptops during meetings.

What would you recommend as a very good conference table connectivity box which could be used for connectivity with cables such as HDMI, Ethernet, etc and provides power to devices with sockets attached?

Thanks,
Robbie

We have watchdog devices in every server room/closet every location in our company.  Every device have an IP/hostname with cname.  So I can go by the name of the room.
Issue is I still have to go to individual every IP to monitor.  Is there an easy way to consolidate into one single page with links, that doesn't require a lot of html coding.  
Any advice?   Solution using Watchdog15 devices with temp, and flood probe attachments.

We have a client that has a SAA7146 video capture card (PCI Vendor ID 1131 and Device ID 7146).  They had it running on an old Windows XP computer but it died.  Shocker, I know.

This is used for some rather old (Windows XP) era eye diagnostic equipment and we have gotten the old computer setup on a new box (Windows 10 X64) with a virtual XP machine in it.  The only thing we are missing is a driver for this card.  We can not find a driver for it and looks like all hope is lost.  

Relentlessly searching Google for it and can't find anything even close to even a Windows 7 driver.

(The problem is that the software specifically needs this card and the company that makes the software is out of business.)

Any thoughts or help?  Please!

I have recently upgraded 2 computer at our office. They each have a new Corsair 88R case. The problem is that these new machine are extremely susceptible to static. Most of the time, when the user touches the case -- even to [up]plug a USB device, the machine freezes. No keyboard, no mouse, no activity. A hard reset is required. These users' former computers were in the same location and exhibited no such problems. On tech I talked to said I should have used the copper-colored stand-offs to mount the MOBO to the case. Another tech said they were only for MOBOs that had extra mount points beyond the arched "bumps" in the case for mounting. I'm searching for ideas as to why these computers are having such a problem with static whereas their predecessors did not.

Ideas?

I simply unplugged the sata cable from one of my two HDD's now all it does is start up. Restart by itself. And do nothing else.

The monitor just is black can't even let it boot into BIOS...

Any advice?

Machine is HP Pavilion HPE h8-1100z
BIOS is corrupted by malware.
No access to OS, installing new OS not possible.

How can one recover (re-flash) the BIOS?
From an USB drive yes, but HP's Hardware Diagnostics utility does not support any of the Pavilion HPE for BIOS recovery..
Has anyone recovered the BIOS on a Pavilion HPE lately? The BIOS update exe (from HP support site) does not offer anymore the option of creating an USB drive.

Any other option other than recycling this expensive machine?

I have bought a powdered USB hub. 7 ports share a 3amp supply.

i have now realised that 3amps is not enough for what i need. i intend on using 4 of the usb ports and would ideally like up to 3amps per port. so a maximum of 12amps in total.  I could manage with 10amps if there was no other option.

is there a way to do this? obviously i can just go and buy a bigger power supply and power the hub from that but i have no idea what effect that will have, if any?

can anyone recommend a hackaround for this?
thanks

Hard drive diagnostics test stops at 99% every time I run it and never quite finishes 100%. Here is what it stops at.
SMART Check: Passed

Long DST:  Test in progress ……….
Estimate Time Remaining:  1 Sec
Progress 99% but never hits 100%
Every time I boot the HP laptop up it says operating system not found and wants to run a bios check diagnostics?
