If you set your arrival alarm to .001 you are trying to hit a very small circle, only 6' in diameter and the odds of actually reaching that point are incredibly low so it's not likely the alarm will go off. Try setting your arrival alarm to .100 just to see if the arrival alarm works better.

When you set alarm to 15 second arrival you should see and hear an alarm, however, the slower you are going, the smaller the arrival circle gets, which means its gets harder to hit the area that triggers the alarm. 15 seconds is the default setting and I have found that it works fine at normal cruising speeds. If you are traveling very slowly, try bumping the arrival time up in 30 second increments to see if you can get an alarm.

When the alarm does go off, it is a very faint double beep which is hard to hear over the sound of wind and engines. I don't remember exactly how the visual arrival message appears but it is also very subtle. It appears either as a change to the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, or as a message box on the screen that dissappears very quickly. When I use that model I frequently miss the arrival alerts.

How does an earthquake alarm work?


An earthquake alarm provides an early warning by detecting an earthquake's soundwaves before the shear wave hits your area. The alarm will detect a quake that is even many miles away! A loud alarm will then go off.

I have forgotten my alarm code for my motorhome Sigma S30 The keypads still work but I need the code to reprogramme a more rememberable number


Here are some important informationabout Sigma S30. Programming a New PIN Code:
The standard PIN code can be changed following thesequence below:
i) Type in to the keypad **
ii) Type in to the keypad the "existing PIN code" then *
iii) Type in to the keypad 92 * "new PIN code" * "new PINcode" #
Programming Remote Keys to the System:
Remote keys can be added or removed to/from the systemfollowing the sequence below:
i) Type in to the keypad **
ii) Type in to the keypad the "existing PIN code" then *
iii) Type in to the keypad 91 * " the number of keys to beused" #
iv) Press the first remote key button until bleep sounds,release and press next key. Continue until all
keys have been taught to the system. Note the maximumnumber of keys is 4 and all keys required
to operate the system must be taught during this operation- any key not included will no longer
operate the system.
Full Programming, Diagnostics and Features
This section contains all the information that the dealersuse for programming and diagnosis of
the Sigma M30 alarm system, using the MK1 keypadprogrammer.. Programming can also be carried
out using a dealers CP1 programmer.
MK1 Keypad Programming Introduction
It is important the keypad buttons are not pressed tooquickly-
Each time a button is pressed the LED on the keypad willflash once as confirmation. The next button should
not be pressed before this confirmation.
It is important the keypad buttons are not pressed tooslowly-
When in programming mode, if a button is not pressed for aperiod of 10 seconds or more, the alarm will
automatically exit programming mode. This will be confirmedby repeated flashes from LED on the keypad.
You must wait until the LED stops flashing and then startagain.
All programming functions are entered after typing * andthen the programming PIN code. The programming
PIN code is 17856.
To enter the programming PIN code, the alarm system mustfirst be armed and then disarmed using a valid
remote key. (Or keypad using the PIN code)
* 17856 * must then be entered within 30 seconds ofdisarming the system. This is then followed by a 2
digit function code, then another * and then sometimesoptional parameters as shown in the following tables.
It is important to remember the * key is used to separatethe various parts of the code like this:
* programming PIN code * function code * parameter #. The# key is pressed at the end of all
sequences and is used like the "enter" key on a computer keyboard.

I have the Caddx NX-6 alarm system. Problem: Alarm system will not arm when entering the 4 digit code. Symptom: I have all doors/windows/zones closed. LED displays READY. I press the code and get 3...


If the power was out for 5 hours and the control panel still shows 'low battery', it's probably time to replace the battery for the control panel. However, this shouldn't keep the alarm panel from arming up. I would first try to re-start the control panel by removing the power and battery connection for a few seconds and plugging it back in. After that, it would be a good idea to re-enroll all of your attached sensors, etc. by entering into programming mode and exiting. Press * 8 + {go code} then just press exit. The default 'go' code is 9713. After about 15 seconds, the panel will have auto-enrolled each attached device. Try arming and disarming the panel. Be careful of setting off the alarm, as your monitoring station may dispatch police, etc. in the event of alarm. This is why having a certified alarm installer do this work is a good idea, as they can put your account with the monitoring station on 'test' so alarm signals are recorded for testing purposes but are not acted upon.

The hour and minute hands can be pushed onto their respective shafts at any point in most clocks.
If you already know the time that the alarm is set, let the clock run until it sounds.
When the alarm sounds, install the hour hand and the minute hand to the exact alarm set time. If, say, the alarm is set for 6:30, push the hour hand onto it's shaft at exactly half way between 6 and 7 and then push the minute hand onto it's shaft pointing at exactly 6.
I think this should get you operating.

Alarm problems


When creating a new alarm, the LG Shine will start with the "Set Time" function where you can set a 15 minutes alarm jump (by moving the navigation button horizontally). If not desired, you can go one step down onscreen to set the alarm time manually. If you accidentally jump back to the 15 minutes jump method in the previous function, it will automatically postpone the alarmsetting with 15 minutes increments again. Please verify you don't use that function by accident while setting up the alarm time manually. If all of this is not the case, I would suggest to return the phone because there could be a problem with the phone or software.

In the last week I have bought 2 tomtom ones. one was a 125 the other a 130. Both have given me the same problem. On arrival of my destination it is taking me anywhere from 1/8 mile to 1/2 mile away from...


First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.

You need to replace the touchpad. I'm just getting ready to replace mine for the second time in 14 years. A bit pricey but not a hard repair to make.
An appliance repairman told me that it's possible to peel the old pad off and carefully fish the connecting wire out to the point where it plugs together. This would save removing the burners and the stovetop I'm going to give it a try when mine arrives
