You can obtain a User Guide from here if you haven't got one:

It is in pdf format and the page you need is Page 4 of the manual (p 12 of the pdf). There are descriptions of all the lights on the front and their meanings when off, on, or flashing. There is no mention of a "lock light" such as you describe, and the flashing of some of the lights is to be expected under normal operation. Does the modem work satisfactorily? If it does then I would leave well alone. It would however be good for your peace of mind to go through each of the lights in turn and make sure that they are behaving as the manual suggests.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

My phone is lock

I had the same problem last year, I was messing around with the security part of my phone and I dialed in the wrong code so many times that my SIM card locked up on me and I couldn't call or text anyone, except to only 911. that is what is happening to you.
Since your SIM card is locked since you punched in the wrong PUK code, call your cell phone customer service, explain the situation, and what they did with me is they sent out a new SIM card in the mail to me. They would probably do the same thing to you as well. and when you get your new SIM card you would have to call your cell phone company customer service and have the SIM card activated.
Next time don't mess around with the security part of your phone and don't dial in any wrong codes that you don't know of. I learned my lesson when it happened to me. I went with a prepaid cell phone company and they said that if I did it again that they wouldn't give me another SIM card and I would have to purchase a new phone.
good luck :-)

Its new, don't mess about with it, take it back to the seller and ask them to replace it under warranty. If you start to mess about with it, you may void the warranty.

Don't know what the extra water line is for on my new kitchen faucet

Is it for the auxiliary sprayer that you may not have? You don't give much information about your new faucet except you do say it is on your microwave oven. I could give better help if I had an idea what make/brand/model it was.

Thank you for your question @

The fuse is in the back, where the power cord goes into. But don't go messing around in there unless you know what you are doing. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in first.

How do you change a shifter seal in a 07 ktm 250sxf

For a kwik fix you can take the shift lever off and use a dental pick and pull the seal out and replace with a new one, don't worry about messing up the one you are taking out but don't mess up the shaft. to do it right you have to remove the case on the clutch side and pull the shaft out from that side and them replace the seal.
