Hmmmm.... Hello jubest. I am a bit concerned that you even know how to get into download mode. Download mode prepares the copier to be reprorammed. This is used when the engineers at Canon who designed the machine determine that through R&D and real world encounters decide to update the software/firmware to better hone the device's ability better function in the real world. I would not call it dangerous to life and limb or to the enviroment where the device is being used for an untrained person to enter download mode. But I can assure you that it is extremely easy to render the copier unusable, although it can still be used as a great place to put a fish bowl or a no smoking sign if you decide to play around with "download mode".

Different screen now:

It only tells you if you have a custom rom or an official rom and also that mode will let you download and install unofficial roms using a pc/laptop. Be mindful though that it will void your warranty. If you don't know what your doin, i advise you to just take off the battery to close that mode.

How do I set my Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR to auto mode

If you mean the auto exposure mode, turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the "A+" position, between the "P" and the lightning bolt.
If you mean autofocus, set the switch on the lens to the AF position if the lens has an autofocus switch. On the camera, press the AF button (cursor-right) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
If you mean the auto white balance, press the WB button (cursor-up) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
In the auto exposure mode the ISO mode is set to auto, and you can't change this.

If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.

Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

My 2Gig Sansa says it is full - and indeed almost the full two gigs are used up, and yet the music folder is not even 1 gig full and all the other folders, even the hidden ones, are empty - 0 bytes. Where...

The Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing room. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. If you need any more info go to

Phone just says dowload, help, how do i reset it?


I'm note sure why it says this but I do know what it means;
When it says 'download' on the screen it means your phone is in 'Download mode'. This is a special mode which is needed to update the firmware of the phone.

You get into this mode by pressing '9' and the power button. Maybe your '9' key is stuck?

Chrome Incognito Mode

from google:
"For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, for example, to plan surprises like gifts or birthdays, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window. You can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time by using separate windows.
Browsing in incognito mode only keeps Google Chrome from storing information about the websites you've visited. The websites you visit may still have records of your visit. Any files saved to your computer will still remain on your computer."
Hence it an option to maintain privacy..the same feature is included in IE8(beta)
Hope it helps!

What does ' download mode mean as soon as the copier is turned on no other function tart ....just the display turns on and stated "download mode" Sparp copier 1655 cs

Not sure what it means but it's almost impossible to get out, once in that mode. If it's under a year Sharp will fix it for free, call and talk to tech support they will ask for a CC # and will send a prepaid return sticker to ship ground. If not most likely you will have to change the main board!!!!!!!
