Click Stick "enter" function not working

I can not select highlighted menu funcitons. The push down "enter" function does not seem to be working. Sounds like there are other click stick problems out there. Any fixes found yet? This is my fathers unit, he just thought it was operator error. No, the enter function is not working.

    I have the same GPS with the same issue.  The Click Stick started working erratically a whlie back and finally seemed to have stopped completely.  I can scroll down and right, but cannot go left, up or click Enter.  I was thinking of taking it apart to see if there was something loose that could maybe be soldered.. but don't really want to deal with he sticky mess that holds the rubber bumper on unless it will fix it.

I have exactly the same problem, stick doesnt work up, left or enter. I encountered this website:

It's at our own risk and I havent tried it myself yet, but still, it might be worth it.

Boot menu


Your computer's BIOS, or basic input/output system, regulates several important system functions before your operating system loads.
The BIOS can even tell your operating system which device it should load from, whether the computer's hard drive or a USB stick.
You can control this and other options from the BIOS boot menu.
If you own an Acer Aspire One netbook and want to access the boot menu, you can do so by entering the computer's BIOS.

Turn off your Acer Aspire One netbook.
Turn it back on.

Press "F2" when you see the Acer logo appear as the computer boots up.
This will open the computer's BIOS menu.

Press the arrow keys to highlight the Boot option.
Press the down arrow key to highlight specific boot settings to change.

They support boot options such as Safe Mode, which is generally best for troubleshooting and virus removals; or the Safe Mode with Networking, which allows to use an Internet connection while troubleshooting system problems.
Within seconds, you can access the boot menu and select the option that works well for the task you want to accomplish.

Shut down all currently running programs and restart your computer.
Press "F8" repeatedly before the Windows icon shows up on your screen.
This will bring you to the "Windows Advance Options Menu."

Scroll down and select the boot option you want.
Press "Enter."You can select from "Safe Mode" "Safe Mode with Networking" or your regular booting option.
Choose the boot option based on your need.
For troubleshooting, it is advisable to select "Safe Mode" because only a certain amount of drivers and resources run allowing you to resolve issues.

The store demo mode is stuck on my insignia tv. the user guide says go to menu and then setup and select plug & play. however the plug and play option is grey and it wont let me select it.


Are you using an HDMI cable? Go to input and select TV. Then you should be able to access the Plug & Play option and be able to turn off the Demo Mode.

How to set password for sony ericson 770i


Enter the main menu by pressing the centre button, then highlight Settings and press Select (Figure 3). Scroll down to highlight Locks and press Select (Figure 4). Scroll down again to highlight Automatic keylock and press Select (Figure 5). Now choose On and press Select (Figure 6).
For added security, you can set your phone to lock with a numerical code. This means that if you should lose your phone, it will require a passcode to be switched on again. You have three options: On, Automatic and Off. ‘On’ means that you will be required to enter the passcode every time the phone is switched on, where as ‘Automatic’ will only require a password if the SIM is changed.
To activate any of these functions, hit the centre button to enter the main menu, then scroll down to the Settings icon and press Select. Now scroll straight down to Locks, press Select, then choose Phone lock and press Select (Figure 7). Before you begin, you’ll need to change the code to something only you know (Figure 8). By default the Phone lock code is set to ‘0000’ so highlight Change code and press Select, then enter ‘0000’ and press OK. Now you’ll need to enter a new code twice in order to activate it (Figure 9).
Once you’ve changed the code scroll up to Protection. Press Select to adjust the protection level (Figure 10). Choose from On, Automatic and Off, then press Select (Figure 11). You’ll be required to enter your passcode to continue, then you’ll see a confirmation message.

Deleting Photos From The Memory Stick


Deleting Still images From The Memory Stick This procedure is nearly identical with all of our digital camcorders. The only difference you may find is that there may not be an enter button on your model. If this is the case, the menu dial serves as your enter button when you push it in. * If you want to delete protected images, you must first deactivate the image protection. * An image which has been deleted cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER. 3. Using the (FWD) and (REV) buttons, search for the still image that you want to delete. 4. Press the MENU button. 5. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The MEMORY SET submenu will appear. 6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight DELETE and press the ENTER button. Using the MENU DIAL, select either THIS FILE or ALL FILES and press the ENTER button. *THIS FILE : deletes only the file currently selected. *ALL FILES : deletes all files stored in the Memory Card. 7. A box will appear to verify whether you wish to delete the image(s). Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. *EXECUTE : deletes the selected image(s). *CANCEL : does not delete the selected image(s) and returns to the previous menu.
