To change the language on Tzumi bluetooth earbuds it`s quite easy. To change the language back to English, please turn the unit on, make sure it is in pairing mode, once you hear the recording, press and hold "+" until it says English, then you are good to go.

I have recently imported a Toyota Landcruiser Prado from Japan. It has a multi av station NHDN-W56 HDD navigator. How do I change the language setting on this device from Japanese to English


Looking up in the manual might not be practical because you won't find the setting and language option if you have your device in Japanese.
I don't mean to sound funny but I would like to share a personal experience: I bought some time ago an mp3 player without manual and with an on-screen menu. After some use, form one moment to other, without any apparent reason, language reverted to "default" Chinese - with chinese characters. I could solve the problem with the help of the manager.of in my favorite Chinese restaurant.
SO FIND A FRIENDLY JAPANESE and ask if he or she can help you..

On a Cannon Powershot IXUS 86015 How do i change the language back to english?


Hey thaze,
According to the manufacturer you need to press the playback button, which looks like a triangle pointing to the right. Next you need to hold down the func. /set button, and press the menu button. Next you need to use the up/down arrows, or the right/left arrows to choose the desired language and then press the func. /set button. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
