Do you have a lithium battery installed, open the lcd and you will see a gray cover. Take the cover off (pops off using your nail) and either the battery is not there or it is installed incorrectly.

I need a manual for Tripp lite omniplus 1000 lcd


Changing the battery

If your Tripp LIte Omni 1000 LCD display a fault icon and beeps after changing the battery, try the advice given by the buzzerman which worked perfect in this case:


1. Turn the UPS on. Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.

2. Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until beeps several times). The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound. At the end of this process the fault icon and the beeping turned off.

Tip

When your screens blink.. What to do!


A lot of people have had the dreadful blinking of the screens. Whether it's only 1 screen blinking (upper or lower) , or both screens blinking..

I have a tip to help you diagnose the problem so you don't have to waste time trying to find out what's wrong with it, or waste money.


1.) IF YOUR UPPER LCD BLINKS
  • There is something wrong with your lower LCD and/or the connector on the board where the lower lcd connects to.
POTENTIAL SOLUTION
  • Open up your Nintendo DS lite system and clean the board with rubbing alcohol. Be sure to dry the board from excess liquid before re-assembling it. Use a FIRM brush. An regular toothbrush would not work as the bristles are not firm enough.

2.) IF YOUR LOWER LCD BLINKS
  • There is something wrong with your upper LCD and/or the connector on the board where the upper lcd connects to.

  • Follow the Potential Solution to #1

3.) IF BOTH SCREENS BLINK
  • 99.9% of the time, if both screens blink, your light is red. Which indicates your battery is low. Change the battery. If your system isn't charing your batteries correctly and/or you're losing battery power unusually quick, replace the charger.

  • If that does not work, send your system in for repair, as the charging port needs to be cleaned.

ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder: I have a blinking red icon with a slash through it...


Sounds like the memory battery indicator. Does it look like a button battery with a slash? If it is, you probably cannot set the date and time also. It takes a CR 1616 button battery and goes in the window behind the main battery.

LCD lites up, but Icons and words are gone, its blank.


Ah, sounds like the "blue screen of death". Very often, putting the remote in 'safe mode' and doing a firmware update will fix this problem. Here's how:

Launch the Logitech Remote software on your computer and click on "Downloads" (on the top menu bar). Then, take the battery out of your remote and at the same time you connect the USB cable to your remote (it should be already connected on the computer end) press and hold down the Off button at the top of the remote. This will put the remote in "safe mode". Continue to hold down the Off button until you see the message "safe mode requested" on the remote's screen and the screen starts blinking. Now, since your screen is not behaving properly, you may or may not see this message, but after about 5 seconds you can release the Off button. Now, go back to your computer and click on "Firmware". If the software is able to communicate with the remote, an update to the remote's firmware should be executed. This has solved many a 'blue screen of death' problem. Good luck!

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

I don't know if this is related to the recording problem, but I believe the red blinking icon may be telling you to replace the backup battery. It's a button-type battery and is located under a small panel located in the area where the LCD folds into, just below and to the left of the buttons there. The battery is a CR1616 battery. Try replacing it and see if it resolves the recording issue.
