How does this camera take videos?


If I understand your question correctly, you are wondering how to connect this camera to an AC power source to do long term video capture. This would also be helpful for bulb exposure. Unfortunately, natively this camera does NOT support power over an AC outlet (240V or 115V in North America). Best solution I can find is to build a battery pack for it, but that might not work as I think the camera requires the battery door to be shut to function. You could likely build a battery pack and make it work, but you would likely need to do some case modifications.
If you want AC powered camera, you normally need to step into the higher end DSLR's (the mirror-based DSLR cameras). I do not believe that any of the PEN series has power over AC or over USB.
This camera supports up to 7 minutes recording in Video mode (due to an AVI limitation). I think the limitation is moreso in the compression algorithm used, but 7 min is the max it will record so having AC power isn't really required in my opinion. Bulb mode photography goes up to 30 minutes, so that may require some fancy power adapters. If you took the camera apart and swapped out the crystal for a slower cycle crystal you could get longer video and bulb exposure at the cost of no longer having an accurate clock or if you hack the firmware, but neither method is supported by Olympus (nor me) and goes beyond the scope of the original question.
At the time of this post, the E-P5 was the latest in the PEN series and that one does NOT support power over AC or USB.

Pc card eject button popped out and won't go back in


I've had that happen before. I just started using the tip of a ballpoint pen to eject the card. Believe me, if it doesn't just slide back on, you might have to disassemble the laptop casing to put it back on...big hassle. I suggest you just use a pen, pencil or something similar to pop out the card.

Toyota 4runner sr5 won't start its getting gas and spark.


Sounds like the problem is beyond your ability to diagnose

Too much fuel could be a leaking fuel injector or fuel pressure
regulator.

Too much gas & a no start isn't really the issue

Did it start & run before you did the wires,I would check your work
& mark the wires with a pen & also have diagram on paper before
you start a job like that. Especially when if you have no reference
material.

You put a mechanical fuel pressure gauge on a running engine
& the apply vacuum with a hand pump to regulator to watch for
pressure change,eg: pump pressure vs: regulator press

First of all understand what is cartridge the you can solve your problem your self in future if related same: The cartridge contains two parts 1. ink tank, 2. Pen(electronic nozzles controlled by mother board).. Ink tank contains ink & main source to pen to write,.. if ink is over you wont get any image.Ink is there but pen is not writing then no use..both conbination has work to gether to create image..As you said ink is there, but pen is not working due to ecetronic nozzles are faulty & this information with mother board, that's why its indicating that replace the cartrdige..And we can't repair it because of micro technology.
See fig: 1. Container, 2.Nozzles. 3. Electronic contacts to control nozzles..

Memory is full and won't download. Have the latest update, but can't transfer to pen due to memory full most likely. Not sure what to do to get it to clear the memory and get the latest...


Hi i am glad to be able to help you with this. I had the same problem and this is what i did.... 1) Open livescribe desktop 2) Dock your livescribe pen. 3) Click on the audio tab on the top left hand corner. 4) Left click on your last audio download 5) Release the mouse and hold down the shift key on your keyboard and at the same time pressing the arrow up key until all of your downloads are selected. 6) Right click on the page with your mouse and select from the shortcut menu " Remove audio from smartpen ". This will remove all your recordings from your smartpen but they will be saved on your computer(livescribe desktop). Please note that the process of clearing your pen's memory takes a while ( approx. 5-8mins for 1GB). Your livescribe desktop may indicate that it is not responding but don't remove you pen. When your pen's memory is cleared it will be indicated on your desktop. You will also notice during this processthat a pen and a computer are highlighted on your pen's display.

i hope that this helps.

Some usb keys or flash drives have a little switch thatlocks it & makes it read only. Try looking for something like this. Or youtry following these steps:

For USBdrives:

1. Open Start -> Run...
2. type diskmgmt.msc and press enter
3. right click on the partitin you want to format (where the leter and is)
4. select 'Delete Partition...' and confirm
5. right mose button in the same place and select 'Create partition'
6. select primary partition
6. select , file format, disk leter, label etc should be all right if youleave defaults.
7. click ok

This will recreat the partition and format it in proper way.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

Pen won't write though plenty of ink


There are a couple reasons a pen refill won't start writing right away. The first thing to check is the tip--often there is a bit of glue or plastic over it in order to prevent leaking.
If that doesn't work, then try one (or both) of the following two methods:
1) Place the refill (but not the tip) in some warm water. Heat will allow the liquid in the gel pen to become thinner and flow more naturally.
2) Hook a rubber band around the middle of the pen, using tape to ensure safety, and wind the pen while holding the rubber band on either side of the pen. Make sure the cap is on the pen. When the rubber band is tight, when you pull straight out on the rubber band from both sides of the pen, it should spin very quickly. The centripetal force will cause the liquid in the pen (at least half of it) to move toward the tip.
Make sure you fasten the rubber band to the pen with tape or something similar; otherwise the pen may go flying off at someone nearby. Also, again, make sure the cap is on to prevent any ink spraying out--this is unlikely in a gel pen, but it could happen.

This is probably the ignition lock cylinder worn out or getting old. The TDM is most likely not locking the key in, but new cars are pretty tied into themselves. For now, just try leaving the key in. Use another one for the doors. Some cars have a small hole under the steering wheel/column that you can stick a pen or something in to release your key. Maybe just be ready for something else breaks, then you'll know what is wrong.
