If you still experience the issue after using the tool, do the following solutions in the order shown.

The -6000 errors can happen on both local and network setup. Select the appropriate setup from the following options and perform the recommended steps.

You are opening the file locally

This means you are opening a file that is saved on the same computer where QuickBooks is installed.

Solution 1: Rename the .ND and .TLG files

The .ND and .TLG files are part of your QuickBooks files. These are configuration files that allow QuickBooks to access a company file in a network or multi-user environment.

If these files are corrupted or damaged, you will encounter these errors when you open your QuickBooks files. Renaming these files will not cause you to lose QuickBooks data. These files are automatically re-created when you rescan using the QuickBooks Database Server Manager and when you open your company file.

  1. Open the folder that contains your company file.
  2. Find the files with the same file name as your company files but with extensions .ND and .TLG.
    • company_file.qbw.nd
    • company_file.qbw.tlg
  3. Right-click each file and select Rename. Add the word OLD at the end of each file name.
    Example: company_file.qbw.nd.OLD
  4. Open QuickBooks again and try to sign in to your company file. If the same issue occurs, proceed to solution 2.

Solution 2: Open a sample company file

By opening a sample company file, you are testing if the problem possibly lies with your company file or the QuickBooks application. If a sample company file does not open and instead returns an error, it is an indication that the QuickBooks installation is damaged and should be repaired.

  1. In the No Company Open window, select Open a Sample File and choose any from the list of sample company files.
  2. If the sample file opens, proceed to solution 3. If the sample file returns the same error message, repair your QuickBooks installation files.

Solution 3: Copy the QuickBooks file on the Desktop

By copying the file on the desktop and opening it, you are testing if there is a problem with the location of the company file. If the file opens while it is saved on the desktop, it means the location is probably damaged or it is “too deep,” it exceeded the file system path limitation. If the file still did not open after changing it’s location, it is possible the file is damaged.

  1. Open the folder that contains your company file.
  2. Find the file with the extension of .QBW.
  3. Right-click on the file, then select Copy. Go to Desktop, right-click anywhere on the desktop, then select Paste.
  4. While holding down the control key, open QuickBooks so you are directed to the No Company Open window.
  5. Click Open or restore an existing company. Navigate to the desktop and find the company file you copied and open.
  6. If you are still getting the same error, please proceed to solution 4.

Solution 4: Restore a backup

Since the company file did not open even when it was moved to a different location, you can restore a backup copy of your company file to check if the problem is with the current company file (.QBW).

If you experience an error while restoring the backup, follow these steps:

  1. Check that your computer is not hosting.
    1. Open the company file.
    2. From the File menu, choose Utilities.
    3. If Stop Hosting Multi-User Access is listed:
      1. Select the Stop Hosting Multi-User Access.
      2. In the Stop hosting multi-user access window, select Yes.
      3. In the Company file must be closed window, click Yes.
  2. Make sure the path to your company file is no more than 210 characters long.
    1. Go to the location of your company file.
    2. Copy the path from the address bar at the top.
    3. Paste it on your notepad and count the character including the spaces.
      For example: C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDocumentsIntuitQuickBooksSample Company FilesQuickBooks 2018Sample_company_file.qbw is 125 characters.
  3. Retry restoring the company file.
  4. If the error persists, proceed to solution 5.

Solution 5: Use ADR to restore your backup

If the company file is damaged, it is recommended to recover lost data with QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery.

You are opening the file over the network

This means you are opening the company file saved on the server or another computer.

Solution 1: Check if Hosting is turned on, on all workstation

It is recommended to have one PC/Server to host the company files.

  1. Press F2. The Product Information window opens.
  2. Find Local Server Information. Hosting should be turned off.

Solution 2: Rename the .ND and .TLG files and run the Database Server Manager from the QuickBooks Tools Hub

The .ND and .TLG files are part of your QuickBooks files. These are configuration files that allow QuickBooks to access a company file in a network or multi-user environment.

If these files are corrupted or damaged, you will encounter these errors when you open your QuickBooks files. Renaming these files will not cause you to lose QuickBooks data. These files are automatically re-created when you rescan using the QuickBooks Database Server Manager and when you open your company file.

Step 1: Rename the .ND and .TLG files

  1. Open the folder that contains your company file.
  2. Find the files with the same file name as your company files but with extensions .ND and .TLG.
  3. Right-click each file, then select rename. Add the word OLD at the end of each file name. Ex: company_file.qbw.nd.OLD

Step 2: Run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager from the QuickBooks Tools Hub

The purpose of Database Server Manager is to host your QuickBooks company files. It is best to restart the DBSM and rescan the QuickBooks files after you rename the .ND and .TLG files.

From the QuickBooks Tools Hub, (Download in Solution 2) run the QuickBooks Database Server Manager.

  1. In the tools hub, select Network Issues.
  2. Select Quickbase Database Server Manager. You’ll be asked to install QuickBooks on your server if it isn’t already installed.
  3. Inside the QuickBooks Database Server Manager, Select Start Scan if you see your company file(s).  If you don’t, Browse to the location of your company file and then select Start Scan.
  4. Open QuickBooks again and try to sign in to your company file. If the same issue occurs, proceed to solution 3.

Solution 3: Open a sample company file locally installed on a workstation

By opening a sample company file, you are testing if the problem possibly lies with your company file or the QuickBooks application. If a sample company file does not open and instead returns an error, it is an indication that the QuickBooks installation is damaged and should be repaired.

  1. In the No Company Open window, select Open a Sample File, then choose from the list of sample company files.
  2. If the sample file opens, proceed to solution 4. If the sample file returns the same error message, repair your QuickBooks installation.

Solution 4: Open the company file locally

By opening the file locally, you are testing if there is a problem with the location of the company file. If the file opens while it is saved on the desktop, it means the location is probably damaged or it is “too deep”, it exceeded the file system path limitation. If the file still did not open after changing it’s location, it is possible the file is damaged.

  1. Open the folder that contains your company file.
  2. Find the file with the extension of .QBW.
  3. Right-click the file, then select Copy.
  4. Go to desktop, right-click on the desktop, then select Paste.
  5. While holding down the control key, open QuickBooks so you are directed to the No Company Open window.
  6. Select Open or restore an existing company. Navigate to the desktop, find the company file you copied and open.
  7. If you are still getting the same error, please proceed to solution 5.

Solution 5: Close all QuickBooks processes

  1. Log in as the Administrator on the server computer.
  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up the task manager.
  3. Show processes for all users by selecting the Users tab.
  4. Highlight each QuickBooks process (QBW32.EXE, qbupdate.exe, and QBDBMgr.exe), then select End Task.
  5. Open the company file in multi-user mode.
  6. If the error still appears, proceed to solution 6.

I dropped my phone and the screen is black but it still works -What do I do?

What to do if you drop your phone in water
I dropped my phone and the screen is black but it still works problems

I dropped my phone and the screen is black

1-  your phone if still staring at a blank screen, it’s possible that the cable connecting the logic board to the LCD screen has become disconnected. This can occur if you accidentally drop your phone a few times. In order to regain your screen’s functionality, the cable will need to be plugged back 

2- I believe something got disconnected from the logic board but I haven’t opened the phone

Problem: Hi, my S7 fell from my hand, and even though the screen is physically intact and unscratched, it is competently black, therefore, I cannot unlock my phone to extract the data. I’ve bought devices to connect keyboard and mice, they don’t work, they don’t even power the phone up. What are my options? I desperately need to backup pictures. Thanks for your advice.

Solution: It looks like the drop might have damaged some internal component of the phone. Does your phone respond to charging? If it does then you can try connecting the phone to a computer with Smart Switch installed then try to backup your phone data using the software. In case the phone does not respond at all and you want to recover your phone data then you will have to bring this to a service center and have it checked.

Have you tried to restart your iPhone? This is the first and easiest solution that refreshes the device and eliminates any issues. If you have no idea how to restart the iPhone, then follow my steps:

Restart iPhone 7 or earlier:

Step 1: Press and hold the sleep/wake button until you see the slider appear on the screen. Drag the slider to turn off the device.

Step 2: Now, press and hold the sleep/wake button again until the Apple Logo appears on the screen.

Restart iPhone 8 or later:

Press and hold one of the volume buttons and the sleep/wake button at the same time until the Apple Logo appears on the screen.

If still not work, then you can try the following two methods, they are the most useful methods I found.

  • Restore iPhone in iTunes

Before you try this way, don’t forget to put the device in DFU mode first, then follow the following steps:

Step 1: Hold down both the power and home button together

Step 2: After exactly 10 seconds, let go of the power button but keep holding the home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 3: Release the home button and the screen should go completely black.

Step 4: Now connect the iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.

Step 5: When iTunes detects a device in recovery mode, click on “Restore.”

Fix iPhone Screen Goes Black Without Data Loss

If all of the above solutions fail to work, I recommend you try Tenorshare Reiboot. This program is one of the best iOS system recovery programs since it can fix any software related issue on your iPhone without data loss. To use ReiBoot, download and install the program onto your computer and then follow these very simple steps.

Step 1: Launch the program and then connect the iPhone to the computer using USB cables. Once the program recognizes the device, click on “Repair Operating System”

I dropped my phone and the screen is black but it still works problems

Step 2: Now, click “Start Repair”, it will suggest you download a firmware version that matches your iPhone iOS version. Choose a save path and download the firmware package.

Step 3: Download firmware and the software will begin repairing your iPhone operating system. Within a few minutes, you will get your iPhone in a normal state. credit of site and all rights to www.quora.com
