Try this;
Hold down the code press and release the "L" key type 001 and release the code key.
If this works the perminate repair is to replaced the keyboard.

Fully charge the Sony digital Handycam. If the camera is not powering on or shutting down during the middle of a shoot, it is due to the battery. If the battery is unable to hold a charge (this occurs after a few years of use) you must replace the lithium-ion batter.

Press the "Menu" button if no audio is recording on the video camera. Choose the "Record" feature, then select "Audio." Oftentimes the audio comes (or is accidentally turned) off. Select the "On" option and exit out of the menu. Now all future recordings capture audio in addition to video.
· 3 Delete unwanted video files if your hard drive is full. When the internal hard drive is full you receive an error message stating the camcorder is unable to capture more footage. Bring up the "View" option on the camera, then select a video file you no longer want and choose "Delete."
· 4
Turn off the video camera and remove the battery. Wait a few minutes before inserting the battery back into the camera. If the menu or any other internal hardware on the computer is malfunctioning performing this reset corrects the problem.
· 5
Upload the video content from your camera to a computer via FireWire cable instead of USB. When using USB the quality is downgraded as it is unable to support the higher data stream required to upload videos. If you don't have a FireWire port on the computer (it is similar in size to a USB connection, but one size is curved and a "Y" icon is printed next to it) you will have to use the USB connection.

How do u delete people from wii fit plus!? ive deleted them as a mii but guests took there places and i want to add me dad and bff

To delete a Wii Fit character, select the character you wish to delete in the wii fit screen. Your options should be next to them in the performance graph. One of the options there will delete them from the game.
Deleting the Mii character only deletes the Mii, but the personal data remains for each game.

I permenantly deleted my account and now I want to resign up!

I don't think you will be able to recycle your original signup info for a long time if ever but you can simply add a single character to your Facebook 'name' such as JohnSmith1 instead of just JohnSmith. It would probably be recognized by your former friends. Passwords can be reused on most sites with which I am familiar.

If your date and time are not set yet, press Menu, then 1, then 2 and enter the date and time, pressing Set after each entry. Enter time in 24-hour format so it will display AM or PM properly.

By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly you can access the character you want.
