Thank you for your response regarding "totes, Whistle Key Finder only responds 10 inches from my mouth". I received this device for Christmas. It did not seem to be working properly. I looked it up on the Internet and found it under Boscors, totes Whistle Key Finder with LED light, item number 161295. This is an electric key finder with a keychain attached. It is black plastic with a brushed gunmetal center for the control area. When it is switched on, a black button activates an LED light. Below the black button is a slot that I assume receives the signal when you whistle, and activates a beeping sound and flashing light. The alarm action went off when I whistled within 6 to 10 inches of the device. However, the e-mail that I received from one of your representatives stated that the activation range should be 40 to 80 feet. My device does not respond past 10 inches from my face. What must I do to increase the range and make the device functional? I found no directions within the packaging. Please advise. Thank you, Larry Anthony

    SOURCE: #1 remote in IR Mode,


    It sounds like it may be an interference issue with the IR. Some LCD TV's can cause interference with an IR signal which will cause problems with the remote. Something you can try to fix is disabling the Auto Back-Lighting feature on the TV itself and see if that helps. If not, the easiest way to fix would be to make the TV1 remote UHF.

    This would require a 21.0 remote as a 20.0 is IR only. Look on the back of the remote at the top to see what model you have.

    With a 21.0 go to System Information. On the back of the remote inside the battery cover is a switch that says IR And UHF and make sure the green 1 is showing. Flip it to UHF and press Record 3 times. The Primary Address should now have UHF in it. Try the remote and see if it works.

    If it doesn't or you continue to have problems you can post here or email me at

    Those ridiculous instructions probably contain the secret to proper functioning of the key finder. For now, the perfect solution would seem to be to scale the offending device into the trash.

    How to fix a hanged/frozen/non responsive Pan Digital Novel E-Reader


    If your Pan Digital Novel Reader... does not respond or hangs, it means the unit/device has frozen. This is a software/OS (operating system) problem.

    Usually, resetting should do the fix. To reset, push the hole at the back of the unit with paperclip and the unit will reset. But if you have reset the unit by pushing the small hole at the back with paperclip (which means reset) and that seems not to solve the problem, then it means the operating system of the unit is corrupt. This is a software problem and to fix this problem, you need to install the firmware for your unit.

    Firmware helps to remove the corrupt software and re-install a new one. Your unit will be as new once this is done.

    Upgrade via PC

    This option is for Windows PC only at this time.
    With this method, you must connect your pandigital novel to a PC and then run a downloader program which automatically downloads the firmware to your device.
    1. On your computer, go to
    2. Choose the "Upgrade with Your PC" option.
    3. When asked to Save or Run, select Run.
    4. Follow the prompts in the Upgrader window to download the firmware into your device.
    5. After the download is complete, turn your device off.
    6. Press the Volume + key plus slide the power key on simultaneously for 5 seconds, and then release both.
    7. Your device is upgraded and restarts automatically.
    8. In the Language setup screen, tap Save with English selected (other languages will be available in future firmware upgrades).
    9. In the Date/Time screen, if necessary, tap in the Time Zone, Date, and Time fields to set the correct time for your location. IMPORTANT: In order to connect with your Barnes & Noble online account, the Date and Time must be set correctly according to your location.
    10. Tap Save.
    11. The HOME screen is displayed.


    If you have previously performed a firmware upgrade to your device using one of the above methods, we recommend that you move the existing upgrade file into a different folder before performing another upgrade, which allows you to revert back to the existing version if desired.
    1. Connect the device to your computer.
    2. In a Windows Explorer or Finder window, create a new folder titled Firmware, and then copy the existing upgrade file into the Firmware folder. (The upgrade file is named similar to SYY_MM_DDK_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP.)
    3. Perform the new upgrade using one of the methods above.
    Revert back to Previous Version
    1. Connect the device to your computer.
    2. In a Windows Explorer or Finder window, delete the upgrade file from the root, and then copy the upgrade file from the Firmware folder back into the root of the device.
    3. Turn your device off.
    4. Press the Volume + key plus slide the power key on simultaneously for 5 seconds, and then release both.
    5. Your device is upgraded again and restarts automatically.
    6. Follow the prompts to re-set your language and date and time.

    I hope you found the above helpful.

    Where is usb port on model 786n mag innovision desktop

    The MAG Innovision 786N is a CRT monitor. It will not have a USB port. Look on the computer for a flat input, approximately 1/2 inch wide x 1/8 inch tall. There are likely two or more together, those are your USB ports. Unless your computer is more than 10 years old...

    Certain numbers on the hand held set do not respond when pressed. The nubers are 9 and, sometimes, 3 on the touch pad of the hand held. Why is this and how can I fix it? Thank you so much for any help you...

    Sounds Like The Key Pad Backings Are Dirty This Happens With Time. You Can Fix It By Taking The Phone Apart And Accessing The Rubber Pad Behind The Numbers. Clean The Black Circles On The Rubber Pad With Rubbing Alcohol And A Q-tip Also Clean The Receiving End Of The Black Rubber Side Also Known As The Circuit Board. There Are Half Inch Or So Circles On The Circuit Board, Clean Them Off Using A Q-tip And Rubbing Alcohol As Well.

    Please Note: Remove The Battery Before Attempting This And Find Any Screws That Are Holding The Device Together. After That Get A Small Flat Head Screwdriver And Work It Between The Gap Along The Entire Edge Of The Phone ( Starting With The Mouth Piece Is The Easiest) Please Take Extra Care Not To Break The Phone If You Still Cant Seem To Get It Apart Please Check Again For More Screws.

    Setting an automatic vacation response
    Going on vacation? No access to the Internet? No problem! Use Gmail's vacation responder to let people know you won't be able to get back to them right away. You can set up a vacation response in your Gmail settings that will automatically reply to anyone who emails you. While the vacation responder is enabled, Gmail will send a response to anyone who contacts you.* If that person contacts you again after four days and your vacation responder is still enabled, Gmail will send another vacation response to remind the person that you're away from your email.
    Here's how to let people know you can't respond right away:
    1. Sign in to Gmail.
    2. Click Settings along the top of any Gmail page.
    3. From the General tab, select Vacation responder on in the Vacation responder: section.
    4. Enter the subject and body of your message in the Subject: and Message: fields.
      • If you've enabled a personalized signature in your settings, Gmail will automatically append it to the bottom of your vacation response.
    5. Check the box next to Only send a response to people in my Contacts if you don't want everyone who emails you to know that you're away from your mail.
    6. Click Save Changes.
    While the vacation responder is enabled, you'll see a banner across the top of any Gmail page, displaying the subject of your vacation response. To stop Gmail from automatically sending the response, click end now within the banner. Or, if you'd like to edit the response, click vacation settings.
    • Keep in mind that your vacation response will start over each time you edit it -- if someone receives your initial vacation response, and then emails you again after you've edited the subject or body of the message, he or she will receive the edited response, too.
    * Messages classified as spam and messages addressed to a mailing list you subscribe to will not receive a vacation response.

    Gps module

    I just went through this with Lowrance. tthe LGC 2000 module on my LCX 20 depth finder "quit responding" out of the clear blue. You have to go and they have some tests you can follow to see if it is a bad cable or the module itself. I had to replace the module. They charged $99 bucks plus $12.50 shipping for a new one. I bought it spring of 2008, and the unit was 3 months out of warranty when it quit working. Last season I had lower back fusion and didn't use it except for 2 times late in the season. Getting ahold of Lowrance is going to be an experience. I called twice and waited on hold over 35 minutes before I was suddenly cut off both times. I tried email too, but it took 3-5 days to receive a response. Mine broke down June 18 of this year. I started trying to get hold of Lowrance the next day. By the time all the back and forth emails with the delayed responses were done, I received my new unit on July 24. 5 weeks! with out my gps in MN. It is a short season up here as it is. I sure didn't enjoy waiting that long.
