I have a Bosch oven with the "key" sign constantly lit and the oven won't function at all. Re set it at wall etc.

the key sign shows that the child lock is engaged. to unlock, usually you push and hold the lock button for a few seconds. the correct button is usually a dual function and so marked. if you need more help, go to and look up your model number for your manual. good luck

How do I cancel the control lock

It would help if you gave the brand and model number of your dishwasher, but the answer is basically the same. Look carefully at your dishwasher control panel. You probably have a little lock symbol that is lit up (or a light inside the symbol is lit). And usually this lock symbol is located near (usually above) a button that is usually used for another purpose. Most often this is the Heated-Dry key or button. Press and hold this key for 3 to 5 seconds until the lock symbol light goes out. And it's just that easy! But if you press the key, and nothing happens, then you may have a bad control console that will have to be replaced.

The access door will not open, it is showing the locked symbol in the window

Your problem is either one of the 2 cases below.

1. Door Locked Indicator...'Keyhole' symbol
The 'Keyhole' symbol will illuminate 2 seconds after you have
pressed the 'START/CANCEL' button and will remain lit
throughout the wash programme.
The 'Keyhole' symbol will be flashing at the end of the
programme to indicate that the door is still locked. When the
symbol goes off you will hear a bleep and the door can then
be opened.

2. If the machine has been child locked, deactivate this feature by pressing and holding in the 'child lock' button for 2 seconds.You will hear a beep and the child lock symbol will go out,allowing you to use the machine normally.

My wireless adapter is not showing networks or connecting to internet

First, make sure the driver for the adapter is up to date. Next, check to see if it is turned on. For laptops, the easiest way is to make sure the on/off switch (if applicable) is in the on position (denoted by a ' symbol). Also, most laptops come with a function (Fn) key combo to allow you to turn the adapter on and off. The other key to press will be denoted by a symbol that looks like a radio tower or a WiFi symbol. If the adapter is on and functioning properly, verify that the access point (eg. wireless router) is also connected to the internet and functioning properly. Make sure all lights that are supposed to be lit are, usually one for connection and one for transmit. If the router is not functioning properly, unplug it for 30 seconds to 1 minute to reset it (you will not lose any settings). If you verify that everything is working properly on your end, contact your service provider.

I would like to know what the differnt lights/symbols on the front of the router means

The first light from the right is the power light

The saturn looking icon is the internet light, it will lit up if you have something connected to the internet port of the router.

The curving lines is for the wireless broadcast, it will not lit up if the SSiD broadcast is disabled.

The button in the middle is for WPS ( Wi-fi Protected Setup )

and you've got the wired ethernet ports.

On boot up a lock symbol with a '9' is lit & nothing else happens

the "9" inside a lock means that your Num Lock button has been pressed. If all you see is the ">" then maybe you are looking at what's called a DOS prompt, and I have no idea why that would display. Try holding the Power Switch for 10 seconds and restart your computer. Hopefully things will be better, and you know where your Num Lock key is.

Lock symbol

Usually you need to press a key in addition to the lock key. Try using a combination of the lock key and FN or CTRL or SHIFT.
