Question about Symbol MC9060-G

1 Answer

MC 9060 not retaining programming

We have 3 MC 9060 that do not retain there programming and settings if the battery runs out.  Two of these units are only used two or three times a month so I suspect the internal battery is not fully charged.
Is there a way to load and save programs to these units so that all settings are retained even if the units battery runs out.

We have the same problem, and according to our supplier we had to use the Regsave for saving the settings, due to internal proceudres, we haven't use the devices for a year, but now we have to use them again....
We have found this solution in the net, perhaps will help you...., now we are trying to find out the RegSave utility, if you find it, PLEASE e-mail me at THKS
Some brief notes about the use of RegSave on Symbol 90X0 terminals, specifically the 9060 with the 802.11b RF option.

You will need

Unzip this and locate the file RegSaveCED.exe in the 9050 folder.

Connect your terminal as a guest in ActiveSync and explore it using Win Explorer. Locate the c:\applications folder and copy the RegSaveCED.exe file to this folder on the HHT.

Now you can uncouple the HHT and click start menu and Windows Explorer to look at HHT's local files. locate applications folder and locate the RegSaveCED.exe file... double tap

Now screen RegSave EMEA TS appears.

In Registry section press "Create Template File"
Accept \Application\RegSave.tpl option offered
Click Create template and wait forever !

............. time passes ..................

The app rattles through all the registry entries and builds a file with them all in. Just when you assume it'll last forever it stops...

Now back to the main screen ...

Click OK (top right) to exit the app

--- oOo ---

Now set your IP parameters and RF bits... in fact anything you need.

........... time passes ...........

--- oOo ---

Now re-load the RegSave app.

Press the button in the Registry section entitled "Save Current Configuration"

I got some missing file error here which I rode over roughshod... basically it's looking for a registry exception file. You can create this but and it can be a list of ignored keys but for our purposes it doesn't matter so I just said "Yes"

It'll do some stuff regarding comparing and checking for differences, then it saves the changed bits.

Now you can exit RegSave and try rebooting... it should have saved the changes to the Registry and everything should be the same as before

Just replaced the 4 aa batteries and i always use 3 digit code 159 and now it wont work

You will need to provide more info. To what device and model are you referring?

Many devices, such as universal remotes, will retain the previous settings for only a limited time, like 30-60 seconds. If the batteries run down completely or they are out too long during replacement all the codes will be lost, and you will have to re-program.

How do i replace a ignition switch for a 1992 mercury sable

The ignition switch on Mercury Sable is integrated into the ignition cylinder. When this switch fails, you may need to purchase a special switch from a Ford dealership if the switch used a wireless transponder.

Instructions for NON Functional Cylinder (Cylinder will Not Turn or No Keys ):
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the steering wheel.
3. Using locking pliers, twist the cylinder cap until it separates from the lock cylinder.
4. Using a 3/8 in. (10mm) diameter drill bit, drill down the middle of the ignition lock key slot approximately 13/4 in. (44mm) until the lock cylinder releases from its breakaway base. Remove the lock cylinder and drill shavings from the lock cylinder housing.
5. Remove the retainer, washer, ignition switch and actuator. Thoroughly clean all drill shavings and other foreign materials from the casting.
6. Inspect the lock cylinder housing for damage from the removal operation. If the housing is damaged, it must be replaced.

To install:
1. Replace the lock cylinder housing, if damaged.
2. Install the actuator and ignition switch.
3. Install the trim and electrical parts.
4. Install the ignition lock cylinder.
5. Install the steering wheel.
6. Connect the negative battery cable, then check the lock cylinder operation.

Instructions for Functional Cylinder ( Cylinder will Turn with Key):
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
3. Using a 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column.

To install:
1. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
2. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Door Lock:
When a lock cylinder must be replaced, replace both sides as a set to avoid carrying an extra set of keys.
1. Remove the door trim panel and watershield.
2. Remove the clip attaching the lock cylinder rod to the lock cylinder.
3. Pry the lock cylinder out of the slot in the door.

To install:
1. Work the lock cylinder assembly into the outer door panel.
2. Install the cylinder retainer into the slot and push the retainer onto the lock cylinder.
3. Connect the lock cylinder rod to the lock cylinder and install the clip. Lock and unlock the door to check for proper operation.
4. Install the watershield and door trim panel

Hope this helps.

My hazard lights work, on my 1999 expedition xlt, but my turn signal lights do not. Im not sure if I need to replace the flasher or the relay. If its the flasher, where is the flasher located and where...

This is a common problem for the turn signal switch itself. Try used. You will notice in the instructions to remove the steering wheel. Don't. The removal of the ignition switch is also not necessary. Remove the screws at the bottom of the column where it shows and take a screw driver and pry the other side up to see the 2 screws (torx, or star bits) to remove. This will only take about 20 minutes to perform.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the 4 retaining screws from the lower column shroud and remove the upper and lower shrouds.
  3. Remove the 2 retaining screws from the multi-function switch and unplug the 2 wiring connectors.
  4. Remove the switch.

To install:
  1. Install the multi-function switch.
  2. Tighten the 2 retaining screws and attach the 2 electrical connectors.
  3. Install the upper and lower column shrouds. Tighten the 4 retaining screws.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hi Cool
I had the same problem. I think it's a broken 5.5V 0.1F supercap.
df3be5e5-904c-4043-b94d-3de4b9b64c3d.jpgI replaced the part with this:
It's on the PCB in the middle of the amplifier.
I will test it the next day's, but I think that was the problem.

Looses frequencies programmed

Check your manual to see if there is an internal battery. Many devices use an internal Lithium battery to retain memory. Like any other battery, after time, they will go bad.

The older programmable scanners used to use a 9V battery to retain memory. There was a plate on the back to gain acces to the battery. The newer units may have a long-lasting lithium battery inside.

Please let me know if I can be of futher assistance to you.

Good luck!
