SOURCE: my computer, after running for 15 - 20 minutes

You have a heat related issue in your keyboard. Maybe you have moisture under the membranes or even something like a staple which is shorting the connections between the contact pads on the membrane. The chime ringing is the keyboard buffer telling you that it is full and unable to take any more letters. The buffer is filling up because the membrane issue is continuously pressing a key and it sounds like the zero key. You should remove the keyboard and check for foreign objects. On a laptop, this can be quite difficult. Gently remove the function keypad at the top of the keyboard. Under this you should find some small Torx screws. Remove them (taking note of where any screws which are longer then others were fitted) then slide the keyboard forward to release it. Lift it gently but not too far as there is a connecting cable underneath it. Disconnect the cable and lift the keyboard free. Examine the keyboard carefully looking for foreign objects. You may not find anything but you may be able to turn the keyboard over and shake it loosening whatever may be inside. If it rattles, then something is in there. You can remove the keys but write down which keys go where BEFORE you start and be careful as the locking tabs on the keys WILL break if they are removed incorrectly. Look for little tabs on the sides of the keys and gently prise these away with a small screw driver. remove any foreign objects under the keys and any you see between the membranes under the keys..then reassemble. Hope this helps..

Deactivate the hourly chimes in my TAKSUN TS-613A clock?

I am happy to tell you that THERE IS ANSWER:
In normal time mode press S, hold it, then then press D to activate (or press D again to deactivate) the alarm. You will see the symbol of Bell (above the seconds) appear (when alarm is activated) and the bell symbol will disappear (when the alarm is deactivated). Now if you FIRST press and hold D and then press S it will do the same thing (activate or deactivate the alarm). So D then S, or S then D will do the same thing for activation or deactivation of the alarm. BUT, IF YOU HEAR A BEEP (chime) SOUND when you activate or deactivate the alarm, then you actually ALSO ACTIVATED THE HOURLY CHIME!
BUT if you DO NOT HEAR THE BEEP (chime) when you activate or deactivate the alarm, then the Hourly Chime is OFF!
So (in normal time mode) try it both ways: first holding D and then pressing S, or first holding S and then pressing D (one of these will activate or deactivate the alarm WITHOUT MAKING A BEEP (chime) sound - USE THAT SEQUENCE TO DEACTIVATE THE HOURLY CHIME.
I hope this is helpful!

Phantom bell rings on Siemens wirreless door bell chime jsjs-204, I do not have instructions

You may need to change the frequency of the chime. In this model, you need to remove the batteries from the receiver unit and wait for a while. Then replace the batteries. The doorbell unit should automatically set itself to a different frequency once you press the button, which will(hopefully) solve the problem.

It seems impossible to find the instruction manual for the doorbell. But see who had a similar problem with a different Siemens model, which works on the same principles. (I can't seem to be able to remove the battery from the door bell unit on the jsjs204, but it reset itself after changing the batteries in the receiver).

How to turn off alarm

4 buttons ( mode, start/stop, indiglo, and adjust)

1. Look under the time and see what type of symbols are by the seconds to see if the chime or the alarm is set or both

-The chime looks like a pacman symbol and the alarm looks like a bell

2. If both symbols are present hold down adjust and hit start/stop twice
If only the alarm or bell symbol is present hold down adjust and hit start/stop once

Hope this helps and it should turn off the alarm :)

I have a byron SX85R plug in wireless door bell, i need to change the frequency/ or code, keep false alarming, cant find the instructions , also with the alarm, is a batterie alarm no. SX81R, which came...

From User Guide: Interference from a similar unit operating nearby: a) simply remove the batteries from the push button and door chime units and rest for 10 seconds, this will erase memory b) Insert the batteries into the push button and door chime units, the door chime unit will give 2-beeps to indicate that it is ready for the new registration code. Press the Push Button once, it will generate a new operation code randomly and send a wireless ignal to the door chime unit and it will sound to indicate that new operation code is registered and memorised.
(Note with this unit SX85R the door chime is mains powered, not battery powered, but above instructions are the same)

How to turn off hourly chime on digital watch

If your no-name/no instructions watch has the chime function, try this to turn it off/on:
In regular time mode, hold down the reset button, while you hit the mode button. You should see something on the face appear or disappear. This could be the chime on/off signal. You will have to wait for the regular time to hit the hour to see if this works.
If you do the same but hit the start/stop button instead, the alarm should turn on/off.
The mystery is that you have to go to this third level of button combinations. Who knew these generic watches were this deep.
