Error Code: 80070003 Windows Phone fix without formatting memory card

Image
In Windows Phone, I used to get this below error.
Sorry, we can’t play this file on your phone. Error Code: 80070003
This error throws only for the songs in memory card. Solution: Convert your files to AAC format. You can use foobar2000 tool to convert the music. This tool is for windows PC. You can also use Windows Phone app to convert to AAC format, however I didn’t find any app that do this task. If you find any app that can convert to AAC format please do post in comment.
Many users reported that this error occurred when they mount SD card size more than 16GB. I was using 64GB memory card and I swapped with my old 16GB memory card, even then error 80070003 pop up.
I tried to first convert all my music files to wma file. As wma is the native music format for Windows. Again the error occurred. As Windows Phone has voice recorder, I figured out it supports AAC format. Then I converted all music to AAC, so far no problem Only issue is I need to convert to AAC format every time I do…

Improving battery backup in BlackBerry Z3

After updating my BlackBerry Z3 to version 10.3.1.1779, the discharging rate was poor. In BB 10 version 10.2 battery percentage drops down 1% for every hour. However in the updated version it drops down upto 4% each hour.

After turning off location services, things were back in normal. Location services is consuming more power in V.10.3 than V.10.2. I used have location services always on in BB 10 V.10.2 without any problem.

Reason behind location services consuming more battery backup: In new update location services are integrated with many applications. For example, it is available with virtual assistant to show shops near you, in photos app to tag the location and to provide weather information of your location.


How many apps can be installed in 512mb RAM Android phone?

A 512MB Android Phone will have 8 GB as maximum internal storage. Most of the time 512 MB RAM phone will comes with 2 or 4 or 8 GB variants. However, the user usable storage will be 1GB less than the storage mentioned in specification. For example, in Samsung Galaxy Star the storage mentioned in specification is 4GB but I had only 3.2 GB usable.
How much space do I have to install apps? A typical user will occupy 2GB of space in music, videos, documents and miscellaneous stuffs. So you will be left with 1 - 2 GB to install apps in 4GB mobile. It will be 4GB max for phone with 8GB internal storage.
How many app I can install? You can install as much as 55 apps in your phone. But it is not sure whether it will slow down your phone. The phone lagness is purely dependant on the type of app you install but not on the number of apps. Some apps runs 24 * 7 in the background. Apps like task killer, battery monitor, memory management needs to run every time to do the task.
What type of app i…

DIY - Protect lightning cable from damage

Image
Protect your lightning cable by sleaving it with wires. Below is the images that shows how to sleave and protect lightning cable from damage.




This method will be very useful for heavy users. Whatever brand you have, this cable lasts for only 6 weeks. If you use power bank as shown in images to charge your device, the cable may tear super fast. We cannot always avoid sharp bends which is the main reason for this tear. You can use any item to wrap around the cord. I have used wires as it is easily available.

I have seen some videos showing pen spring to wrap around the cord. It is also an good idea if you have spring available with you.

Is there warranty for water damage - iPhone 6 plus?

No, Apple doesn't cover warranty for any liquid damage.

My ‎iPhone‬ 6 plus internal speaker was not working so taken it to service center they told its liquid damaged and its not covered by warranty.

Suggestions: Apple has little indicators inside the phone to detect liquid damage and if the service center says it's a liquid damage then it indeed is and might have happened without you knowing it. The only option right now is to take it to local market and get it repaired in the best possible way.

The cost for water damage in iPhone 6 plus is Rs:27,000. If it is heavy damage then it is better to visit Apple center or you can check with other local dealers.
