Open Question

F8Z176 won't turn on

I recieved a Belkin F8Z176 for Christmas last year and it won't work. When I plug it into my car my iPod lights up but the FM reciever part doesn't do anything. It won't even charge my iPod. I have tried turning it on the way that the manual said how to turn it on but it still doesn't do anything. Does anybody know what's wrong?

SOURCE: Belkin FM transmitter problem

the F8Z136-BLK does not support 4G nanos. The pins are different on the connector, so the nano will not charge.

****, I was hoping someone answered this because this is exactly what I want to know too! I don't want to spend money on a new transmitter when replacing that stupid rubber piece will probably be enough.

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...

Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

I had my wireless router programed in my computer, i got an ipod for christmas and was trying to get it to run off my router, somehow i ended up deleteing it from my computer, so now the only way it will...


To connect the IPod you need not connect the cord to the router again.
See if the wireless computer is able to go online via rotuer.
Though you have deleted the software from the computer you should still be able to get the wireless in the Ipod by the following steps.

* Open a internet explorer in the computer that is connect to the router wirelessly.
* In the address box type the numbers : & press enter.
* It will take you to belkin router setup screen.
* In the belkin scree on the left hand side you will see Channel & SSID under wireless click on that.
* Once it prompt for password leave it blank & press submit.
* Check what is the SSID & write it down in a peice of paper.
* After that click on security below wireless.
* Here you will see the security that you have set up for the wireless - Note that down in a piece of paper also.
* Now in your Ipod once you search for the wireless network you will see the SSID that you have set up in the router.
* Click on the SSID & click connect.
* It will prompt to type the password for which you will have to type the password that you discovered from the router & press connect.
* You should be able to connect to internet in the Ipod also.

Model f8z176 Need fuse size and spring.

fuse 1 Amp 250 Volt, available in any major auto or electonics store. Spring, I don't know. I need one too and can't find anything on it. My son and I made one from a spring from a ball point pen. It needs to be expanded out in width - I used a screwdriver shaft to help do this. It also needs to be cut down a bit. But it works!!!
