Question about Computers & Internet

I have a sony digital frame and the timer is set at 3 second interval however it continues to do the interval at 10 seconds . It is my understanding that the default setting from the factory is 10 seconds . I have gone into the menu and changed it to 3 seconds without success. Any suggestion ?

    Have no option for custom settings except going to the menu and changing the time interval which i did without getting any results. Have done this several times .

  • drdalebrown Feb 07, 2009

    I have done that and it shows the 3 second interval however when I view the images it continues to do the 10 second interval . On the menu choices I have even selected up to 1 minute and then gone back to the 3 second interval but it still returns to the 10 second interval when being viewed.

  • drdalebrown Feb 07, 2009

    I would assume it is being saved since when I go to the menu settings it is showing the 3 second interval highlighted without me doing anything.

  • drdalebrown Feb 07, 2009

    The model number is DPF-V700 and I received no sony software with this product.

  • drdalebrown Feb 07, 2009

    no luck

  • drdalebrown Feb 07, 2009

    I agree with your conclusion. I have rechecked everything and have already taken it to the local mail station to be returned. It is too bad when things occur but they are THINGS and that will happen. Thank you again for your comments.

    Hi there. unfortunately, this device is defective. these digital frames are quite new and, the on board software can only be reset. if the on board software becomes corrupt, the only option is to return it to the manufacture for a rebuild. you can also return it back to the retail outfit that you bought it from if its not to late.

The easiest method is polling, where the data input is under application (software) control. Generally, the application reads the analog-to-digital converter output when a delay loop ends. However, the time elapsed depends on the the PC’s internal processor clock. Therefore, polling typically isn’t used when precise sampling is required. Here, the polling technique is adapted to achieve stable platform-independent programmable sampling.
Two special purpose ICs are in the PC’s chip set. One of them, in addition to providing control of several common system functions, includes two 8254 programmable interval timer ICs, offering six 16-bit programmable timers. All of the timers can work as a counter, with a master clock (1.19317 MHz) common to all. This frequency and the programming register addresses don’t vary among different platforms, assuring compatibility. Three timers are available to the user, allowing time generation from 0.8381 µs (1/1.19317 MHz) up to 55 ms (0.8381 µs × 65535). In this adaptation, timer 2, commonly used by the PC speaker for alarms or signaling, generates the time between samples. The timer, an 8254, is independent of the processor clock

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

When a setting is changed from factory default to user preferred, it is required that said new settings be saved before exiting the configurations menu.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Computer turns off after 4 seconds


1) Check to make sure your power on button is
not sticking.
2) Try disconnecting tv, monitors, and anything
external to see if it's not an external problem.
3) Make sure your ram sticks are seated
securely.

If computer continues to shut down after only a few seconds it could be a cpu or motherboard issue.

Make sure cpu is not overheating, and the fan on the cpu is plugged in and working.

good luck!

Do you get video? If so then it could be a stuck key on the keyboard.

Samsung SyncMaster 204bw....keeps going black every now and then with the power light flashing, i don't understand what is wrong with it :S please help?? i have to restart my system everytime...


Similar problem with Samsung Syncmaster T260 at 1920x1200 on HIS Radeon X1950XTX video card. Black horizontal stripes lasting 1/60th of a second or so every few seconds, then black screen for 2 seconds, then fine again.

I Set the catalyst control center control panel for the graphics card to Alternate DVI operational mode under the Digital panel attributes item. Setting the screen to 1600x1200 also seems to stop it doing this. BUT...it didn't used to do it. Bought it in November, and it didn't start doing this until late January. Go figure.
