Re: meade autostar hand unit fails after 2 seconds...
Does the Autostar start to come on then fail, ie you get the bleep and initial display, then nothing more? If so, it sounds like it is not completely blown.
I wonder if you need to reload the firmware? You can do this if you have a serial cable to connect it to a PC. To put the Autostar into "Bootstrap loader" mode, power off, then hold down the top left and bottom right buttons on the Autostar whilst you turn the power on (needs at least 3 hands!). The screen displays a different message and waits for new firmware to arrive up the serial lead. Look on Mike Weasner's site www.weasner.com/etx for full instructions.

The fact that initialization cannot complete the task at hand is an indicator the device is not capable of accepting new instructions, the circuit prevents reestablishing current instructions from making changes to the unit, or you may need to pay for services to unlock various codes.
hi, i think you want to ask if how to hard reset your galaxy young...just do this procedure ...
1. Power off phone
2. Press and hold Home Button ( middle ) + Volume Up + power on button
3. Wait for 5 second until Android System Recovery menu appear
4. There are 4 options
reboot system now
apply update from sdcar
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
5. Move the options to " Wipe data / factory reset " using volume down (
- ) button and menu button to confirm, because the touchscreen doesn't
work in reovery mode
6. After the process done, phone will reboot.
Possible that the power adapter has failed and so the DC has cut off into the main unit.
Check the continuity of the adapter , is absent then the transformer is open.
Use can get general purpose adapters to be used. Please check the POLARITY before it is plugged.
To avoid additional damage to unit battery should be removed immediatelly! Normally when this happens it requires only time to resolve the situation. Unit should be put into a warm/dry area & left unpowered for at least 48 hours prior to re-attempting to apply power/battery!!!!! Normally placing unit in an enclosed area along side of a 60 watt light bulb is suitable to completely dry out most items without taking them appart. However caution should be applied as to avoid any direct contact to lightbulb itself...... by cellphone or anything else flamable! Whatever area is used should be as air tight as possible & as small as posible during this process. (4 cubic feet is ideal ) After 48 hours remove from encosed area, turn of light bulb, apply power/battery to unit and ENJOY! One last piece of advise............. TRY TO AVOID H2O IN THE FUTURE!!!!!
Try pushing the reset button on the inside of the battery compartment of the remote unit then push the reset button on the back of the main unit (you'll need a paperclip or tooth pick to push the buttons). If that fails I'd start from scratch by removing the batteries from both the remote unit and the main unit then replace the batteries to the remote unit first and push reset, then replace the batteries to the main unit and if necessary push the reset button on the main unit too. Hope this helps.
If you really like to have this kind of phone unit, the other option is to buy a second hand phone. There are lots of sotre that sell second hard phone units. You can also check out some website like www.ebay.com for online shopping.
