V-tech 2498 landline phone with cordless

For some reason the LED display pad is all garbled-with just black dots; I cannot read anything or program phone; I have tried different outlets to confirm not the electrical; other other phones light up etc and can be programmed but really want to use this particular phone. Can you please advise on how to fix this problem?

3 month old vtech suddenly stopped dialing out or recieving incoming calls. Numbers make beeping noises still and handset says "connecting" throughout. All lines were checked. Landline works fine.

Tip 1 of 2 Recradle the handset for 15 seconds, then lift the handset and press PHONE. Tip 2 of 2 If the handset is not responding normally, you may need to reset your telephone system. Complete the following steps to reset the telephone system: Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 2: Disconnect the handset battery. Step 3: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 4: Reconnect the handset battery Step 5: Wait about one minute for the handset to re-establish a link with the telephone base and then test the phone again. If that does not work, call the manufacture at 1-800-595-9511. Or take it back to where you purchased it and have then exchange it.

BOUNCING CHARACTERS/DISPLAY


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.

Pdf files garbled


The PDF, or portable document format, file bridges the gaps between many software programs. Someone using one program to create a file need not worry that his intended recipient have that same program, because PDFs just require a free software program to open. On occasion, it may seem like a PDF is just as hard to open as a native file created in that proprietary software, but one of a variety of factors may contribute to the unreadability problem.

Software
One of the most common reasons a PDF is unreadable -- and the easiest to fix -- is that the person trying to open the PDF doesn't have the software to do so. To open a PDF requires the free downloadable program Reader, created and distributed by Adobe, which also makes the PDF-creation software Acrobat. A person who doesn't have Reader installed won't see the familiar red-and-black PDF icon; they'll see a white box symbolizing that the computer doesn't know how to read the file. b> Zoom b> Although it seems quite obvious, a person's screen resolution may have everything to do with why a PDF appears unreadable. Since PDFs are often scans or saved files of standard 8.5-by-11-inch paper, small fonts and occasionally handwriting can get be scaled to tiny dimensions when the sheet is viewed full . Zoomed out, a heavily typed or scrawled PDF may appear as a bunch of jumbled black dots and lines instead of the clear text it would be when zoomed in. Conversion b> Even if you have the Reader software installed, trying to open a PDF in a program that doesn't allow it will cause problems. For example, the Reader software doesn't let you edit a PDF -- you need Acrobat for that -- but you can still use other programs to do things such as redacting, or making black lines to obscure information. You can open a PDF in a program such as Adobe Photoshop and have the PDF be completely readable. On the other hand, if you try to open a PDF in Windows Paint, the operating system's native graphics tool, it will be unreadable because Paint does not accept PDF files. b> Missing Elements b> Something that appears perfectly readable on one person's screen may look entirely unreadable on another, solely because of what's missing from the file. In some cases, a PDF that looks jumbled is a result of missing fonts. While it may seem simple to just create a PDF from whatever document you're working on, if the person who receives your PDF doesn't have those fonts installed, the PDF may be unreadable. You can combat this one of two ways -- try to use universal fonts, such as Helvetica; or take the extra steps to embed the fonts into the PDF. This requires use of Distiller, also an Adobe product. An unreadable PDF may also be missing the password or certificate to render the document readable. Contact the person who created the PDF to inquire whether he locked it with an encryption. Encryption is removable with a key or password. Hope this helps.

Microwave doesn't start but the interior light goes on when you hit the start button


Hello

Remove the plug from the wall outlet and wait about 10 seconds before re-inserting it. The plug must be firmly inserted to transfer electricity to the appliance.


Open your home's circuit breaker box and reset the breaker if it has tripped and is set to the "Off" position. Simply slide the breaker over to the "On" position to fix a breaker that has tripped.


Plug a different appliance into the same outlet to make sure the outlet you are using is functional. Plug the microwave into a different outlet to see if this yields different results.


Press on the microwave door to ensure it is completely closed. The microwave will not function until the door is fully shut.


Press the "Start" pad on the display panel after setting the time. Failing to press this will result in the microwave not knowing that it should start.


Press the "Stop/Reset" pad on the panel if a program different from the program you want to run has already been entered into the system.


Press the "Clock" pad three times to turn off the demo mode. The demo mode will not allow the appliance to turn on and cook as it should.

Deep, garbled, audio on my contact's end


have you tried recording a message to yourself and playing it back. The reason I ask that is to make sure your audio encoding is working well enough at least for you to understand yourself.
Has the sound always been good on her computer, i.e. any reason to suspect her configuration at all? If not, and assuming she is getting good quality video from you, then the problem may well be in your configuration. Have you tried a different messenging program just to see if that might alliviate the issue. I know from a lot of past experience that different messenging programs can have a major effect on audio especially.
Now my last question, are you both using high speed broadband connections??
