Cidco inc caller id box - model # JA-25A-18

How do you change the time & date on a cidco caller id box? It only has 3 buttons - delete & . When you push the button you get no calls -- delete buttons does nothing. Please help - 1st time using this!

Thanks,
Misty Lampani The product is not the one you have listed. It is a Cidco Inc caller id box - model # JA-25A-18. I can not figure out how to set the time & date.

    Re: Cidco..."Inc"... Caller ID Box - "Model # JA-25A-18" problem...You had the correct product name, of course, just missing the model # is all.

    Hi Misty? I too have the same problem. Currently, I am trying to solve it by the process of elimination. I've found out that if you hold the delete button, the screen will 1st display - NO CALLS -, then SELECT MEM MODE. Then you have the option of choosing 25 NUMBER + NAME, or 64 NUMBER ONLY by pressing either one of the review buttons. There must be a point during the SELECT MEM MODE screen, in which you would be able to change the date and time, along with the choice of which caller ID display that you'd like to utilize. I'm still working on it, and have a Lot of patience, so if i resolve this dilemma :o[)! i'll be happy, willing and able to pass it on to you and the "information highway." I went to the CIDCO site and there is no "contact us" link that I could find...yet.

    If anyone else has assisted with this already, i'd appreciate any additional assistance towards my relief of this good old tech puzzle :o[)!

    Thank You, from the guy with more patience than a doctor, only the different type...Carl

    Good Call {:o) 66542...for Misty there, Annnnd it's been a while, buut I still have the same prob. I requested a call back twice to make sure which way to place the phone lines in, (should be in/left=out & out=right) because it's not labeled on the ID box) and to set the time - date, then I got a "No Data Sent" reading both times. Surrre wish I had the Manual for it!

    I'd like to "Check it before i Chuck it!" {:o)

    Any solution for This dilemma?

    Thank You, or anyone else for any & all assistance, Carl AKA Searching4It

When a call is received it will automatically set the time and date. To change the display contrast hold down the 'delete' button while toggling one of the other buttons. Hold the delete button down until the 'select,mem,mode' is displayed and choose between '25 name & number' or '64 numbers' . Make sure the batteries are good and the batt indicator in top left corner of display is off. I think that is all the features this early model unit was capable of.

When replacing the batteries, hold the Delete button down while inserting the batteries. Once you have good batteries installed, the date and time will automatically reset once you get your first incoming call.

    We unplugged the unit, phone lines and power, and removed the battery. When we installed a new battery, we had a choice of Spanish or English The date and time was automatically set when the first phone call came in.

Describe your cidco cw99 caller id+ user manual Problem I want to delete old data, set all to 0 calls. I don't have a user manual ! Thanks.


Hi drkossvt,

The way to erase all calls on the cidco cw99 caller ID is to arrow into the caller ID list and hold the Delete button for about 6 seconds. The screen will display "- NO CALLS -"
Note: it does not matter which Caller ID entry you arrow to before you hold the Delete button. This also works if you are on the "- END OF LIST -" screen.
If you want to delete a single call, arrow to that call and press the Delete button twice.

Genie Garage door will not close. Receiver Model: ACSR3 FCC ID: BBQ ACSR3


If you hit the button on the remote and nothing happens then you may need to code in the remote. On the motor head press the learn button and then press the button on the remote 3 times.

If it looks like the remote will work the opener or it opens the unit but not close it you are experiencing safety sensor problems. Make sure they are aligned. There will be a light on each and each should be on. Check the wiring to them too. They are not polarized. Thanks BB

My Security system says I have a low battery but I do not know where the battery is. Also it says that the time is not set and when I open the box it wants me to use the number keys to enter my ID but I...


It's asking for your "ID" to give you access to installer programming. You do NOT want to get into installer programming, so ignore it. You don't need an "ID" to change the battery.

The battery is secured to the backplate of the control, the part that remains on the wall when you swing the control panel down after opening it. The givaway is that it's connected to the panel by two wires, red and black. They can be pulled off the battery's tabs and you should be able to see how flexible tabs hold the battery onto the backplate. Bend the tabs just enough to release the battery to change it.

Look online for a battery supplier near you; it's not an uncommon battery. Take it with you to be sure you get the right replacement.

And be mindful to get the red(+) and black(-) wires back on their proper battery terminals when you install the new one. Getting them mixed can cause severe damage to your wallet.

My CO detector is chirping every 30 seconds or so, there is no battery to change and receiving error code 09


depending on what model number you have .. if its a model kn-cosm-b then is actually has 3 AA batteries inside ... the model kn-cob-lcb-a, while it runs on 120 volts, still has a 9 volt battery inside .. in fact most models have a battery backup so that they still work if there is a power outage .. the chirp indeed tells you that the backup battery needs changing .. if you cant find the battery give us the model number and we can help ... sometimes they are hard to find ..

Need to change access code, but need ID. Is it on the main unit


Normally the default codes are either 4321,or 1234.

If those don't work you should try a reset by. first unplugging the red wire behind the system and unplugging the ac adapter. Then you press at the same time the "cancel button" "clock set button" and the "minute plus button" while plugging it in. After that the code should be either 4321, or 1234.
