02:33
Hi, this 'How To' video shows you how to sync your Xbox One controller to your Xbox One. There are three ways that you can connect your controller: •Using the console’s connect button •Using Kinect (requires Kinect sensor) •Using a USB to micro-USB cable. 1. Turn on your Xbox One console. 2. Insert 2 new AA batteries into the controller. 3. Turn on your controller by pressing and holding the Xbox button until the controller turns on. The Xbox button will pulse, indicating it’s not yet connected to the console. If the Xbox button is lit solid, then the controller is already connected. 4.Press and release the connect button on the console. 5.Within 20 seconds, press and hold the connect button on the controller until the controller’s Xbox button quickly flashes a few times, indicating that it’s searching for the console. It then switches to a solid light when it's connected. Your controller is now connected to your console. Repeat this procedure for every extra controller that you want to add. Many thanks Vince

How to Transfer Data from a PlayStation 4 to a PS4 PRO
 
11:28
Hi, this video shows you the full step by step of transferring all the data from your existing PS4 to another PS4. In the video I am transferring all the data from a PS4 Slim and putting it onto a brand new PS4 Pro but it will work between any version of PlayStation 4. In the video it shows the first time setup of the PS4 Pro followed by the transfer. It does take a long time to complete but it is very simple to do and then you can continue to play your games from where you left off on the previous PS4, you do not need to start over from the beginning. Once you are complete if you wish to sell your older PS4 then I have also done an in depth video in my YouTube channel on how to fully wipe the data from it. Many thanks Vince

3 Annoying FAULTS on the Nintendo Switch & how to FIX them

Hi, this video shows 3 faults that I believe will become very common as the Nintendo Switch ages. The first fault is a loose kickstand which is easy to fix.

The third fault is a Joy-Con which keeps unlatching from the Switch, this fault cannot be easily fixed but I give a couple of preventative ideas to stop it from happening. Many thanks Vince

Permanent FIX for loose Joy-Con on the Nintendo Switch by replacing the Latch
 
19:16
Hi, this video shows a permanent fix for the problem of the Joy Con coming off the Switch without pressing the release buttton. I show the full process of replacing the damaged latch with a metal one purchased from eBay. This WILL VOID your warranty so do it at your own risk. Nintendo may have made the latch out of plastic as an intended weak point so it breaks rather than breaking the more expensive Switch, if this is true then replacing them with metal could lead to damage on the actual Switch if you drop it. If you are worried then you can buy plastic replacement latches instead. The video shows the complete process including testing. The repair begins at 04:40 in the video. Many thanks Vince.

Do FAULTY Discs still work on Xbox One Backward Compatibility?
 
03:00
Hi, this video shows a damaged Xbox game disc working on a Xbox One when using Backward Compatibility. The disc does not work on the original Xbox console but it works on the newer console because the game is stored on the hard drive. So if you have damaged Xbox and Xbox 360 games then it might be worth holding onto them as if they are released on backward compatibility then you might still be able to use them. Many thanks Vince.

Noisy Telephone BT Line FAULT caused by a bad connection. EASY FIX
 
02:17
Hi, this quick videos show a very simple fault that was causing a noisy line. The wire connected to terminal 5 had been inserted badly which was putting noise (crackling) on the telephone extension wiring. This happened because the IDC punch down tool was used at an angle rather than nice and vertical when punching down. Changing the front plate of the NTE5 master socket solved the problem. This problem was on the customer owned wiring and would have been chargeable if BT Openreach were called out. Many thanks Vince

How to Manually Eject a DISC Stuck in your PS4 Slim /  PlayStation 4 STUCK DISC FAULT

This video show you how to manually eject a disc that has become stuck in your PS4 Slim console. If you have a long thin Philips (crosshead) or small flathead screwdriver then this is very easy to do. You need to shut down the console and unplug everything from the back. Turn the PS4 Slim upside down and you will see a circle above the PS logo. Insert your screwdriver into here and turn counter clockwise (anti-clockwise) until the disc is released from the front. You do not have to wind it back in again once the disc is released. This will not affect your warranty. Many thanks Vince

How to Connect the Xbox One S to a VGA Computer Monitor or VGA TV
 
05:03
Hi, this video shows you how to use the Xbox One S Console on an old VGA Monitor without any HDMI ports (Original Xbox One will work the same as the Xbox One S). This same setup will apply to old Televisions without HDMI ports but on the TV you will not need separate speakers as the TV will have speakers built in already (unlike my old monitor) but you may need a long 3.5mm stereo lead or a 3.5mm to twin phono (red and white RCA connectors) depending on the Audio Inputs on your TV. The picture is perfectly acceptable as on my old monitor it is outputting 720P (HD Ready) but your monitor may well be capable of 1080P(Full HD). It will not be as good as using a HDMI cable on a Full HD TV because using VGA is an analog signal rather than the better digital signal but is definitely usable. Many thanks Vince.

PART 1: Weird & Wonderful things about the Nintendo Switch
 
06:56
Hi, this is a series of videos about weird and sometimes useful things you can do with the Nintendo Switch. In Part 1 it contains: 0:05 - SFANS Portable Dock 2:14 - Extending Battery Life 3:53 - Finding Missing Controllers In this series some things are supported by Nintendo and some things are NOT supported by Nintendo so try them at your own risk!!!! WARNING.....The SFANS adapter (no.1 in the video) is an expensive rebrand of an existing cheaper product so although it does work well and does what it claims to do it is not worth the price quoted on the indiegogo campaign. Personally I still like the product and hope the price drops to nearer £30. Watch Spawn Wave for more info. https://youtu.be/gtu7r9U1l_E Many thanks Vince.

Hi, this 'How To' video shows you how to operate the convenience feature on a 2015 VW Golf MK7. The convenience feature allows you to open and close all the windows and sunroof via the key without being in the vehicle. This is really useful on a hot day to air the car before getting into it. Although this video shows a Volkswagen this feature is common on a lot of makes & models in the last 15 years so give it a go to see if it works. On some cars you can insert your key in the door lock and turn it clockwise, release, then turn it clockwise again and hold. Turning the key counter clockwise will usually raise the windows back up.

How to Increase Xbox One Storage using External Hard Drive
 
16:30
Hi, this video shows you how to increase your storage space for Games & Apps on your Xbox One & Xbox One S consoles by using an External USB Hard Drive. It also shows you how to play the games from your external Hard Drive on another Xbox One. You will need to get a USB 3.0 Hard Drive with at least 256 GB. The one shown in the video is Seagate 1TB (1000GB)which has more than twice the storage of the Xbox One 500GB as you do not have the whole 500GB for games & apps because the operating system takes up space. You can get the official Xbox external hard drive which is 2TB but the inside still uses the Seagate 2TB HDD which you can normally buy for around £15 less. Many thanks Vince

How to SYNC up GameCube controllers on the Nintendo Switch
 
06:42
Hi, this video shows you how to make your GameCube controllers work on the Nintendo Switch. The way shown in this video will definitely work. It doesn't matter which USB port you use or what order you do the connecting up in. You just need to follow the video for it to work. Also you do not need to have the Switch setup for Pro Controller Wired Communication (using the Pro controller with a USB cable), it will work whether this option is set to on or off. You can connect 2 GameCube adapters up to the Switch so in theory you should be able to use 8 GameCube controllers (I have tested 4 of them and all 4 work fine). Many thanks Vince
