Lumia 950 Crashes when taking a picture? Lumia 950 Crashes when a call comes in? Lumia 950 has to be soft-reset constantly? Lumia 950 audio glitches out and repeats like Max Headroom stuck in a loop?
Have you taken it to the Microsoft store and had them reflash it and run diagnostics to no avail?
Have you read online forums and posted to the Microsoft Feedback Hub it vain?
My wife and I both have Microsoft Lumia 950 phones we purchased the same day just over a year ago. Mine started glitching out. Crashing, rebooting, generally making me want to chuck it against a wall.
RING RING! Who’s there? NOBODY – HA HA HA! CRASH! PULL MY BATTERY AND SOFT RESET AGAIN! MAYBE I’LL REBOOT IF I’M FEELING GENEROUS!
Finally figured it out. Why is mine acting up and not hers? Answer: I use mine more.
And if I use mine more . . . there are more cycles on the battery.
Replace the battery.
It’s that simple.
***Author’s Note: I’ll be posting the link to this solution in various forums. Please help spread the word. I love my Lumia 950 and damn that was frustrating!
Here is a little surprise I received upon returning from vacation. I was editing a blog and when I went to save the post an error popped up reading:
- The server (our server domain, e.g. DOMAIN.COM) at Magic requires a username and password.
Well isn’t that special?
The problem is caused by the vars.php file located in the WP-INCLUDES folder. Someone did a SQL Injection (Read More Here) and added code to the file.
The fix is an easy one – 2 steps:
- Download a new version of the vars.php file from WordPress and replace the corrupted one. Look here – Simply choose your WordPress version
- Update WordPress to the latest version!
Normally, the files starts:
* Creates common globals for the rest of WordPress
* Sets $pagenow global which is the current page. Checks
* for the browser to set which one is currently being used.
* Detects which user environment WordPress is being used on.
* Only attempts to check for Apache and IIS. Two web servers
* with known permalink capability.
* @package WordPress
But after it has been “hacked” there is encrypted text reading something like:
So once again, Look here – Simply choose your WordPress version, go to WP-INLUDES, download Vars.php and replace the one on your server. Then update WordPress for better security.
