I have a taylor ice cream machine thats keeps a constant beep even when ice cream is ready model 339-27


I'm not 100% on this model but here goes....
A "beeping" tone will sound to alert you
of a fault.
To discontinue the tone, access the Operator
Menu and enter Option B. Correct the fault, then press
the OFF (<--) key, and the tone will stop.
FYI Fault Description
(Option B)
This option lists any faults detected by the control and
allows the operator to clear them from the system.
When a fault is detected it will be displayed on the
second line of the LCD. Pressing the MENU/SEL key
will display the next fault found or return the display to
the Operator Menu if no additional faults exist. If the
OFF key is pressed when a fault is displayed, all faults
that have been corrected will be cleared from the LCD
upon returning to the Operator Menu. To return to the
Operator Menu, press the MENU/SEL key.

power switch is in the OFF position.

_________________________________
The Operator Menu allows the operator to access
operational information and to set non-critical
functional parameters. The Operator Menu also allows
access to the Service Menu. (Note: Only service
technicians who know the access code may use the
Service Menu.)

Service Menu
Pressing the OFF (<--) key will move the cursor one
position to the left. Pressing the STBY (-->) key will
move the cursor one position to the right. Both keys
include the "wraparound" feature. This means that
when the cursor reaches the end of the option, any
further movement in the same direction causes the
cursor to "wraparound" (to be placed at the opposite
end of the option listing)

here's the manual if you don't have it....

Olympus Stylus 850 SW LCD screen will not turn on. The camera itself will turn on and take pictures but i must do it blindly. i cannot see the pictures nor can i see through the lens.


If you camera is built with a viewfinder there is usually an option to de-activate the lcd screen. Usually if you press the display or play button on the back it will re-activate. Also try to access any of the menu's by pressing the menu button. If this does not work also then the LCD is probably bad or not making connection. You would have to find a local service center for repairs. www.phototech.com is the local service center in NYC or you would have to send directly to Olympus in Woodbury Long Island.

Good Luck

SCREEN MESSAGE - MODE NOT SUPPORTED


You have set a resolution that is too high or incompatible with your monitor. I assume you are using Windows. Turn the computer on and immediately keep pressing F8 on the keyboard until the 'Windows Advanced Options Menu' appears. Use the Up and Down keys to select 'Enable VGA Mode' Press enter and your screen will work again when windows starts. Now go to the display properties and click 'Advanced' then click the 'Monitor' tab and tick 'Hide modes that this monitor cannot display' OK everthing and now you should be able to adjust the resolution without getting a blank screen again! Good luck and come back to comment soon. Regards
