  • When we  try to restore a iphone 3 sur Itunes and new Lion we have error 3194 can t restore this iphone what can i do ?

    when we  try to restore a iphone 3 sur Itunes and new Lion we have error 3194 can t restore this iphone what can i do ?
    thanks for your kind help

    1. Update iTunes - latest version is 10.4.1.
    2. Disable ALL security apps (firewall, antivirus/spyware) running on your computer.
    3. Don't try to downgrade the iOS version.  This isn't supported
    4. If you EVER tried to hack thie phone or use apps like tinyumbrella, you may have to edit the hosts file on your computer to remove references to gs.apple.com
    5. If your phone has been hacked (jailbroken, iOS downgrade, or unauthorized unlocking), you may not be able to restore the phone to Apple specs again.
    "This device is not eligible for the requested build: Also sometimes displayed as an error 3194. If you receive this error, update to the latest version of iTunes. 3rd party security software or router security settings can also cause this issue, to resolve please follow Troubleshooting security software issues. Downgrading to a previous version of iOS is not supported. If you have installed software to perform unauthorized modifications to your iOS device, that software may have redirected connections to the update server (gs.apple.com) within the Hosts file. For steps to edit the Hosts file and allow iTunes to communicate with the update server, see  iTunes: Troubleshooting iTunes Store on your computer, iPhone, iPad, or iPod; follow steps under the heading Blocked by configuration (Mac OS X / Windows) > Rebuild network information > The hosts file may also be blocking the iTunes Store.  Also, using an older or modified .ipsw file can cause this error. Try restoring moving the current .ipsw file aside, or try restoring in a new user to ensure that iTunes downloads a new .ipsw."

  • How come when I try to open an app on my phone does the screen just blink and the app not open?

    How come when I try to open an app on my phone does the screen just blink and the app not open?

    Some apps crash. If they do, try this, in order.
    1. Double click your home button and put your finger on any app and hold for a second. Then delete that app. You're not deleting the app from your phone, so don't worry. Then try opening the app again.
    2. If that doesn't work, hold your sleep+home buttons for 10 seconds and don't let go. Ignore the power off message. Then try again.
    3. If that doesn't work, delete the app and re-download it. (This will work most of the time)
    4. If that doesn't work, download the app on iTunes on your computer and sync it from there.
    5. If that doesn't work, wait for an update by the developers.

  • How come when I try to look at my photos in Iphoto a triangle comes out with an exclamation mark and I cannot see my photo?

    How come when I try to look at my photos in iphoto a triangle comes out with an exclamation mark? Does this mean that I have lost all of my photos? Is there any way to fix this?
    Thanks to all...

    It means that iPhoto has broken the link/file path to the original file. 
    Apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
    Fix #1
    1 - launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    2 - run Option #4 to rebuild the database.
    Fix #2
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    1 - download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    2 - click on the Add Library button and select the library you want to add in the selection window..
    3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the Library ➙ Rebuild Library menu option.
    4 - In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    5 - Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

  • HT201328 how come when I try before I can pa freerification required before I ca purchase. I'm trying to install free games

    How come when I try to install a free game my phone asks for Verification Required before I can Purchase when I am trying to install a free game?

    If you have a credit card on file on top of your gift card then it is asking you to confirm the security code for the card, which for a Visa or MasterCard is 3 digits located on the back, or AMEX has 4 digits on the front.  This happens just to ensure that you are the account holder, and would happen from time to time whether it was a free or paid app, even if you have a credit through your gift card.  This doesn't mean that your credit card will be charged.

  • Spotlight and finder cannot find files as of a certain date. What can be the problem and how to solve?

    Spotlight and search field in Outlook on MacBoon cannot find files as of a certain date. What can be the problem and how to solve?

    Reinstall on both.
    Reinstall Lion, Mountain Lion, or Mavericks without erasing drive
    Boot to the Recovery HD:
    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Repair
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported then click on the Repair Permissions button. When the process is completed, then quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Mountain Lion or Mavericks
    OS X Mavericks- Reinstall OS X
    OS X Mountain Lion- Reinstall OS X
    OS X Lion- Reinstall Mac OS X
         Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet
                     if possible because it isthree times faster than wireless.
    Restore your iPhone to reinstall iOS. Be sure to do this while connected to your computer and iTunes.
         Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings.

    Logout of the app store and iTunes store: Settings>iTunes & App Store>Apple ID. Go back to home screen and  reset the phone by pressing the sleep/wake and home buttons together until the Apple logo appears then release them.
    Once phone has finished rebooting go back to  Settings>iTunes & App Store and login with your Apple ID and password again. Then open the iTunes Store app again.

    How come when I try to print from my iPad for example Tim Horton's WiFi to mu home Airprint printer it does not work.

    The Airprint printer must be on the same local network (LAN) for Airprint to work. You cannot print to your home printer using the WiFi at Tim Horton's.
