SOURCE: ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder: I have a blinking red icon with a slash through it...

Sounds like the memory battery indicator. Does it look like a button battery with a slash? If it is, you probably cannot set the date and time also. It takes a CR 1616 button battery and goes in the window behind the main battery.

SOURCE: when/ i/ press/ the/ space/

Thats a hot key problem. Someone has set a "hot key" on your space bar to make it type that when pushed. Hot keys can be set to do all kinds of things. Like set a combination of pressing two at once to change someones display sideways as a joke ect.

You can turn of hot keys in your computers settings. I dont know what operating system you are running so I cannot give you exact instructions. Just open your help file and type in hot keys and it will tell you where the settings are.

What does a padlock mean by Facebook in the search bar


The lock icon in the Status Bar and the Location Bar of your browser indicates that the current web page uses encryption mechanisms for securing the connection in order to prevent malicious Internet users from reading and modifying the exchanged data between your web browser and the web server. Next to the lock icon is also displayed the actual domain name to which the encrypted connection is being transmitted.
You should be aware that the lock icon simply indicates that the connection between the web browser and the web server is secured. It does not guarantee that the information will be securely handled after it arrives at the web server. Therefore, you should ensure that you completely trust a web server whose web page shows the lock icon, before typing in private or personal information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details.
If the web page mixes both secure and insecure data, then a lock icon with a red slash over it is shown instead. This means that the current web page contains items (such as images or iframes) that were not obtained through the encrypted connection.

I have no microphone when skyping


When you move your cursor to the lower part of the skype (picture) screen/frame, you'll see icons showing up ... "camera", "microphone" "plus sign" & (red) phone handle.

If you see a slash across the "microphone" icon, it means you're on mute. Just move your cursor to that icon and click on it to toggle it (out of mute)

I DONT KNOW HOW TO TURN ON THE BUILT IN WEBCAM ON MY COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ56


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

The universal way to turn the webcam on all laptop computers, regardless of the brand and model is by pressing Fn and F5.
  1. Hold Fn down (usually on the left side of the SPACE BAR on the keyboard)
  2. Press F5
  3. Release both keys
You should see the webcam's icon on the lower right hand side. The webcam's icon with a slash on it states that the webcam is OFF. The icon without a slash means that the webcam is ENABLED.

Thank you for Choosing FixYa! Should you have any questions please feel free to post it here and click YES to vote for me. Have a good one!

How do I unmute my microphone on skype?


Solution for Skype 5.0:
In the upper right of the window during a Skype call, there should be an icon of a microphone with a slash through it. When it is highlighted in red, this means that your microphone is muted. Make sure the icon is white to be unmuted (pictures below).

Another problem could be which microphone you have selected in your Preferences. Go to Skype->Preferences... and click on the Audio/Video tab. There should be a drop down menu labeled "Microphone:"; make sure the correct microphone is chosen.

I have a verizon samsung cell phone. It is locked. There is an icon of a cell phone w/ a circle w/ a slash through it @ the lower right corner of the phone in this icon. how do I get it unlocked?


This icon basically means you cannot make calls, it normally means either you have mobile signal turned off or your handset has been blacklisted. Call Verizon to check the blacklist status.

No sound in yahoo messenger


Here's how to troubleshoot microphone and speaker problems:
1. Click the Messenger menu and select Preferences. The Yahoo! Preferences window will open.
2. Under Category on the left, click Voice & Calls. in version 9 or Video & Voice in version 10.
3. Check the microphone and speaker settings:
- For Yahoo! Messenger 9.0, test your selected speaker by clicking the little Play arrow beside it. Then test your selected microphone by speaking into it, if it's working you'll see an animated level indicator.
- For Yahoo! Messenger 10, test your microphone and speakers by clicking the Open Video and Voice Setup link.
4. Check your system volume by clicking the Speaker icon in the Notification Area of your Windows Taskbar, located at the bottom-right corner of your screen.
- Drag the Volume bar to the top.
Remember: If the little speaker icon below that volume slider has a red circle with a slash through it (no symbol), your sound is muted. Click that speaker once to turn off muting.
- Next, if that didn't work, go to the Mixer, located below the volume bar or access it by double-clicking the Speaker icon in the Taskbar. Make sure that none of the options has been set to mute, and that all levels are set to above 50%.
Your microphone and speakers should now be functioning properly.
Here are some additional things to consider:
- If you're using a headset, make sure that the jacks are plugged in to the correct connectors on your computer and that you haven't accidentally selected a mute switch.
- If you're using a USB headset, make sure your USB connection is functioning properly. Try using another USB device in that connection to test to see if it works.

Nokia 6280


I have a nokia 6280. My camera only randomly works now. There is a little symbol of a blue and white chequered flag and also a little camera symbol next to it, plus an empty bar, rather like a thermometer but with nothing written in it that has a - on the left and a + on the right. In addition, there is a number in the corner either placed top left or bottom left of the screen, depending on whether the screen is on portrait or landscape. When the status informs me that the camera has failed and is now on standby, there is a strike (forward slash) line running through the camera icon. This has only just started happening. The battery is full. Any ideas please?
