Question about Samsung SGH-t629 Cellular Phone

Backlight is not actually lighting up the keys

I got my phone today, and fresh out of the box the top row of keys (the power button, the arrow keys, the menu buttons, all the ones on the front sliding part of the phone) are not backlit at all. I haven't had time to screw it up, so I wonder if the T-Mobile messed something up when they installed my SIM card. Any suggestions on how to fix it myself so's I don't have to send it back for a new one and wait however long it is?

How can I change to setchannel search auto or man on a westinghouse tv mod ltv20v2sl?thankyou

Since the LTV20V2SL only has an NTSC (analog tuner), you may need a set top box to receive any stations. If you have analog cable or are close to a low-power station that still broadcasts an analog signal, you need to follow the steps below.

First, make sure that the input is set to TV. On the remote, there is a TV button in the second row of buttons below the arrow keys. It's on the left below the MTS button. You could also use the TV/Video button on the top of the TV. It's the right-most button and each press of the button will move through the entire list of available inputs. You can use the original remote to select your signal type with the TV/CATV (Over-the-air or different types of cable TV) button. It's on the right hand side of the row with the TV button. Next press CH. Scan on the remote. It's the second button from the right above the arrow keys.

Alternatively, you can use the on-screen menu. Press the Menu button on the remote (on the left above the arrow keys) or TV (the left-most button). Then use the left/right arrows to navigate to the TV sub-menu. Use the up/down arrows to select the appropriate line. First, set the second line to the correct Input signal with the left/right arrows and press Enter to confirm your choice. Then go down a line and press the right arrow key to start the Auto Scan. Note the Channel up/down arrows are up/down and the Volume up/down are left/right if you use the TV buttons.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(If you are using a set-top box, you will need to do the channel scan for that device.)

What can we do to unlock my wife's kyocera phone?

This option is actually a last resort if you are unable to recover or remember the code you have set up..
Hard Reset the phone which will erase/delete all data stored on the phone.. if you can somehow access your data via a computer, try to backup your data before doing the reset. If the phone has a memory card added, you can remove it before the reset process.

Ways to hard reset the phone.

Turn off the phone. If by any reason you cannot turn it off using the power button, remove the battery. Open the flip once the back of the phone has been exposed. Look for the "Reset" button using a small pointed object. Keep pressing it then press the "Backlight" button located on top of the phone.Release the "Reset" button after approximately 3 seconds. Release the "Backlight" button when the display on your phone appears.Choose the "Yes" option by pressing the "Up" button when the "Erase all data?" message appears. You must select the "Yes" option to complete the hard reset.

Another method is to again make sure the phone is turned off. Then press and hold the Volume Down button/key at the same time, press the Power switch/button until the phone starts and display comes up. Release the keys then use the Volume up/down button to select "wipe data/factory reset" then press the Power key. Choose "Yes -- delete all user data" then press Power key again. Once done, do the same steps to perform "wipe cache partition ". Once completed, let it reboot and set up your phone again.

Hope the info sheds some light of hope to at least allow you use your phone again, though as if it is the first time.

Message box full-cannot cleat

On most GE 27***GE-series phones the DELETE key on the base is to the left of the down arrow for MESSAGES/CID keys; the DELETE button is the button on the far left on the bottom row of tiny keys.

Press the button briefly during play-back to delete the message being played, or press and hold the delete button for a full 2 to 4 seconds to clear ALL messages.

Dimming backlight on ec-ws115

Yes. Look for a setting related to the Fn key on the lower left corner of your keyboard, and a similar key on the top row of Function Keys, on which there will be an alternate text in the same color as the Fn key at the bottom.

They are keyed that way so that you must press down on the Fn key first, then the Function Key on the top row which has the text to compliment the action you want to take. Together, they will help you to increase, or decrease the back lighting on the laptop.

Probably there are two separate keys, one to dim it and one to brighten it.

Either of both require you using the Fn key at the lower left of the keyboard.

We dont have a manual and we dont know how to change the channel or set the time

To set the clock on the unit, have the TV connected to power but not on. Then press and hold Mem/Clck Adj on the TV (it's the third button from the right in the top row of controls). Use the adjacent Tune/Clk (up/down arrows) to set the clock for 12 or 24 hour time. Then press Mem/Clk Adj again to adjust the hour with the up/down arrows. Press Mem/Clk Adj again and set the minutes. Press Mem/Clk Adj to save the time. The original remote also has these buttons. Mem/Clk Adj is also labeled Set and is the furthest right button on the second to bottom row of the remote. The Tune/Clk buttons are the DN and UP buttons on the left of this row.

Use the Tune/Clk arrows to change the radio channels after pressing the radio button (second from the right on the bottom row). When you press the TV button (first on the right of the bottom row) to watch TV, then you need to use the Channel up/down arrows at the top and bottom of the ring control on the far right of the TV or the Channel + and Channel - buttons on the remote. On the remote, the Channel + button is below the timer button which is below 9 in the keypad section. Enter is below the Channel + button and Channel - is below Enter. Make sure that the TV is in the correct mode for your signal (ATSC for OTA and NTSC for analog cable) by pressing the TV mode button. If you are using a set top box, you will need to change the channels at the box.

Press the TV Menu button and then go down the list to Time to set the time zone for the TV. Press Enter to save the setting. Use the TV Scan button to get a list of available channels before trying to change channels.

The manual for the GPX KL868S is available from GPX at the product page: . The direct link to the English version of the manual is: .

I hope this helps.

How to select Texting

I just got my Vizio 32" a few days ago, so this is fresh in my mind. When the tv is on and TV is selected from the top row of remote buttons, press MENU. Use the arrow keys surrounding the MENU button to select the WRENCH icon. Under this icon use the down arrow (surrounding MENU) to select CC. Use the right arrow to choose CC ON MUTE (closed captioning only when you select the MUTE button on remote) or CC where you can use the arrow key to change OFF to ON and closed captioning will be on all the time. Hope this helps!

Display problem on Motorola V170 cell phone

The display should still be there, but the backlight is off. What you need to do is get the display under a bright desk lamp and find the setting to turn the back light back on.

Open the phone, hit the center button between the arrows, find "Settings" with the arrows, press the top left button (thats select, as the hard to see screen says).

Now navigate with the arrows through settings to "Other settings", (hit top left button again), "Initial setup" (button again), "backlight" (again), and choose 20 seconds. Right now it is on "off", which makes it so hard to see.

Hope that helps.
