Unfortunately, this is a problem with the keys and their contacts with the circuit board. I have had to return mine a couple of times to get this repaired. If you're out of warranty, they have a trade-up program which is a better deal than repairing the unit.

After NOT using a similar Explorist 300 for a year, I found that a Zoom button and the NAV button do not work, because of no contact below the keyboard. I can get around the NAV problem using the ESC key. Force and luck occasionally cause the Zoom key to work.
My guess is that a plastic bubble wears out after repeated use. 
It's probably not worth fixing but it would be nice to be able to replace the bubble contacts.

When I zoom in to take a picture I get it focused I hit the button and the picture shows up not zoomed?


How are you zooming in? If you are using a button to zoom, that is to check the focus: it's just enlarging the image for your convenience during focusing. In order to get a zoomed-in image when press the shutter button, you need to adjust the zoom ring manually on the lens barrel before taking the picture.

Jvc 57 inch tv. kid did something to change picture size. now too large and bottom is cut off. aspect button on remote when pressed shows a red circle with a line through it.


Hello,

what was pressed on the remote is "Zoom" button, that's why the picture size is large.

So try to identify the Zoom button on your remote by pressing every button on your remote in order to get the zoom button function.

I hope you understand my message.

Good luck.

I cant get left trigger to work without pressing really hard,help


The plastic inside may have snapped a little and therefore not long enough to properly reach the little button on the logic board, shake the ds a bit and listen out for any ratling noises. The button might not be centred properly, worst case is that the button on the logic board may have a dry joint and is coming slightly loose.

Imate pdal touch


my mobile was in locked condition, and now my touch is not working..not even a single tap is working on mobile screen. i did soft as well as hard reset but every time the unlock screen appears after boot process. i can only press the unlock button on screen from the left button on mobile and cant press Unlock again because it is on the screen.
I believe in this situation, only two options can be used, One is to attach a Keyboard, or to access the mobile screen through any software on PC.

Canon Speedlite 430EX zoom issue


You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)
