Just after a normal battery change my device starts asking to contact support because it needs to be calibrated! I have tried to do it myself, but without a clear procedure to follow I did not reach my goal. thanks

That's all I got was a black strip. My solution was to get a new Neat Receipts mobile scanner. It works great and I didn't have to make any software changes. It was worth the price for a new one compared to all the hassles I had with the old one.
Want to calibrate the MSA Altair 4 Gas Detector or MSA Altair 4X? Here's how:
1. Turn the MSA Altair 4 and MSA Altair 4X on in normal reading mode. Do this by pressing and holding the center button.
2. Once the MSA Altair 4 and MSA Altair 4X is in normal reading mode, you need to send it into calibration mode. Do this by pressing and holding right beeps at you and the screen asks you to zero the monitor (sensor refresh on the MSA Altair 4X).
3. Now that the screen is asking for confirmation, press the center button once to confirm. This will send the monitor into zeroing mode. Now is a good time to set the monitor down, and grab your calibration gas, regulator, and calibration adapter.
4. Open the valve on your regulator. This is a very important step so you do not ruin your calibration gas cylinder. Now screw it in to your calibration gas cylinder. Close the regulator once you hear gas spewing out of it. This is the signal to know your regulator is good to close. Continue screwing in the regulator until it stops. Do not overturn it.
5. Attach the tubing to the hose barb on your regulator. Make sure the tubing is also connected to your calibration adapter.
6. Wait for the screen to come up asking for you to apply calibration gas. Once this screen comes up, press the center button again to confirm. Screw the calibration adapter in to your gas detector. Once it is screwed on, turn on your gas.
7. Make sure your calibration gas values on the screen match what is on your calibration gas cylinder!
8. Once the calibration procedure is completed, turn your gas off and remove the calibration adapter from the MSA Altair 4 or MSA Altair 4X. The screen will go back to normal reading mode within a few seconds.
9. Congratulations! You have officially calibrated your MSA Altair 4 or MSA Altair 4X gas monitor. Make sure to record these readings in your calibration log!
If you come up with an error, the most likely bet is a bad oxygen sensor, but it could be a number of other issues. Feel free to email me.
Go on device settings in settings on your ps3 and it should pick up the device. There should be a calibrate icon where once you click on it your screen will turn black and it should beep once it is calibrated. If you have a game such as need for speed it should at start up ask you for device info and will ask you to calibrate
Unless you took the batteries to a service center, I am dubious about your ability to confirm the main battery is holding a charge. The average lifespan of these kinds of batteries range between 3-5 years and is likely at the end of its lifespan. This would explain the diminishing performance over the last year if there were significant power or power circuit issues, they would likely be observed on AC power as well. This model of laptop requires the battery calibration utility be run in order for the laptop use the battery. In fact, the battery can show a full charge and still not function if the utility and battery have not been properly configured.. . . instructions on HOW TO do this below. If this doesn't FixYa then the battery will need to be replaced (links to replacement sources) www.BatteriesOvernight.com/HP-Batteries,----- OR --- www.new-laptop-battery.com/Compaq/?Compaq-Armada-E500-battery.htm. You will still have to run the configuration utility when you receive your new battery. Link to Armada e500 manuals:http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01124216/c01124216.pdf How to run config utility: Standby and hibernation must be disabled for the battery to discharge completely and shut off. To use the Battery Calibration utility, first identify whether the battery requires calibration bylaunching the Power Management applet as described above. On the Battery Calibration tab, allinstalled batteries will be displayed in the primary list box. Next to each battery name will be anindication of whether calibration is required for that battery. If calibration is necessary, the phrase“Needs Calibration” will be displayed. Select the battery to be calibrated, and click the StartCalibration button. During calibration, the utility will display an icon on the Windows System Tray to indicate thatcalibration is in progress. Each phase of calibration (charging or discharging) will also bedisplayed. Calibration is complete when the icon is no longer displayed in the System Tray.Battery calibration requires several hours for completion. If you choose to continue using thecomputer during the calibration process, it must be connected to AC power.The calibration process must be allowed to finish without interruption. Performing any of thefollowing actions will prematurely terminate calibration: Clicking the Stop Calibrating button in the Compaq Power tab. Unplugging AC power from the computer. Unplugging the calibrating battery. (This action may result in data loss if a second battery isnot installed.) Undocking the computer. Pressing the power or standby button. Powering down or suspending the machine by using the Windows menu.IMPORTANT: If the calibration process is interrupted, it cannot be resumed. You mustrestart the computer and start the process again.
CALIBRATING WITHOUT THE UTILITY
To calibrate a battery on computers without the battery calibration utility, complete the following
1. Remove the second battery, if present, so that only the battery needing calibration remains in
2. Dock the computer or connect the computer to AC power.
3. Turn on the computer.
4. Check the current battery capacity level by positioning the cursor over the battery icon in the
5. Allow the battery to charge to 100%. You may use the computer, but the recharging process
will require more time.
6. Set the system to “drain” mode on the battery conservation settings by pressing Fn+F7, or
select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Power (or Compaq Power in Windows NT).
7. Undock the computer or disconnect the computer from AC power.
8. Restart the computer in MS-DOS mode by clicking Start > Shut Down > Restart the
Computer in MS-DOS Mode > OK.
9. Allow the computer to discharge until it shuts off.
10. Dock the computer or reconnect AC power.
11. Allow the computer to charge again to 100% as in Step 5.
