Review the setup instructions. Batteries have to be installed in a certain way and there has to be a waiting period to allow the two units to "talk" to each other

Waveceptor reset


I have a number of these Casio and Citizen watches. This watch does not use GPS for the time keeping. It uses a land based broadcast time signal. There is public information about where the signals come from for your area. The technical breakdown of the time code signal is public access information.

The instruction manual of the watch has the information about when your watch should automatically receive the time signal, and how to set up the watch. Many of the manuals also included a map showing the time signal coverage, and includes the time of day information to show when the signal is strongest.

Make sure the watch settings are for your time zone. This is important. If the main time zone is not for your area it will be trying to receive the signal at the wrong frequency at the wrong time of day. There are areas where the signal may not be able to be received. You can get the mapping for this from the service that the watch has been set to use.

In North America the auto time receive is supposed to take place between midnight 00:00 to 04:00. In the eastern part of North America the reception is poor compared to central and western part of North America. Check the instruction manual for your watch for details.

Below is the spec listing of your watch.

  • Atomic Timekeeping
    Receives time calibration radio signals which keep the displayed time accurate
    Auto receive function (3 times per day)
    Manual receive function

    Measuring capacity: 99:59'59.99"
    Measuring modes: Elapsed time, lap time, split time, 1st-2nd place times

Cannot get audio on one channel


Which make/model TV do you have? Are you watching an OTA signal or cable signal?

On my Viewsonic N1930W, I had a period where certain OTA VHF channels had no audio. The UHF channels were fine. The steps I used to reset the TV: unplug for a while. After reconnecting the power, go to the Tools (Options) menu and then reset the TV to the defaults. Then I did a new channel scan for OTA channels. On my TV, the menu is called Options but the icon is a wrench and a hammer in an X. Thus I call it Tools. The Restore Default option is at the bottom of the list in that menu. The reset command triggers several "Are you sure prompts?" Pressing the Enter key on the remote after highlighting Yes is required. After the reset, I can go to the Channel menu and select Auto Scan after making sure that it is set for Air as the source.

If you post a comment with the details of your TV, I may be able to give the steps to reset your TV.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I spent several days trying different solutions and did e-mail Viewsonic support on the problem.)

My DCT6200 cable box keeps shutting itself off and then turning back on. I have already tried resetting it by unplugging, but that has done nothing. Even after I have turned off the power and left it...


1) have you tried changing that box in that room to another and the box from the other to this room. That may give you an idea of either power or signal strength issue.
2) after it resets does a "dl" show up on the box front. if so it is trying to download a firmware/software update and everythime you power cycle it starts over.
3) turn the box off then hit select and go to option 8. there should be 4 modules enabled.
4) you may need a new box

DTV H20-600


You could check the voltages yourself to see if they are low. The horizontal polarity needs about 19 volts and the vertical polarity about 14 volts to work properly. If those voltages are lower by 25%, the receiver might failed to scan and that is when it locks up because is trying to find signal. The other issue could be a defective power supply if the receiver does not work after that 4 hours. There could be some capacitors that lost their dielectric strength causing the drop in voltage.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Ip address on my computer?


Try this :
Go to Start -> Run -> Type 'cmd' (without the quotes)
In the command prompt window - type - ipconfig
If you do not see any ip address like "169.254....."
Type ipconfig /release (hit enter)
Type ipconfig /renew (hit enter)
Type ping 64.233.169.103
See what response do you get. If this says Sent = 4 ; Received = 4,
Go to IE and try opening a webpage.
If this says, Sent = 4 ; Received = 0
Tell me what ISP do you have?
How are you connected?
Have you ever been able to connect to this network before?
Do let me know what happens...

Thanks & Good Luck
