1.
To attempt to fix an electronic device through slapping, intense shaking, or other means of physical abuse.

Originates from an inside joke among manufacturers in the early 1990's. When the Soviet Union collapsed, marketers tried to take advantage of the suddenly available Russian public and sell them their goods. With such a high demand, manufacturers would simply throw electronics against a wall instead of properly testing them for potential errors to speed up the delivery process. Devices given this treatment were "tested by inspector #13"
My TV was kinda fuzzy, but I gave it the Inspector #13 Treatment and slapped it a few times. Now it's crystal clear, yo!"
