On the Panasonic Toughbook Model CF30, there is
a Wireless Switch located on the front side of the
unit when the cover is open and the unit is facing you.
The switch is on the right side of the handle near the corner
of the unit. Please make sure that switch is turned on.
Then check the device manager under Windows to
see if the device shows up, even with a yellow question
mark or yellow exclamation point. If it shows up in yellow,
then you are simply missing the drivers.
If it does not show up at all, then your CF30 might be
like several of my units that I purchased recently.
My CF30's had both a built-in GPS and a built-in
Cellular Modem Interface but as a consequence no WiFi.
I simply added a small USB WiFi no larger than a
wireless Mouse Transceiver and the USB cover could
close over the mini USB WiFi. $30 cost, problem solved!
Good Luck!

try to know if phone can detect wireless device, if it can, then see to it that you know the password of the wireless device that your phone has detected because mostly of the wireless device or what we call the wifi are password protected.

Error code cf30 in toshiba 3511 what its mean and how can fix it

(CF30) - Reference plate detection voltage abnormality: The output
value of the color auto-toner sensor against the reference plate
is out of a specified range at the light amount correction during
an auto-toner adjustment or when a print job has finished.

Your color auto-toner sensor and reference plate are located under the input tray cover on the left side of the copier when you are facing it. It is on a bracket that hangs down into the copier and sits close to the revolver inside the machine. It is an optical sensor and if either it or the reference plate get stained with toner it will give you this error message, you may attempt to clean them with rubbing alcohol.

This error message may also occur if the solenoid that drives the reference plate is faulty so you will need to check that as well.

I would sincerely recommend that you get an authorized toshiba technician to take a look at the machine for you as this is a fairly difficult problem to fix right.

Gps does not work on panasonic cf30 toughbook. no error message

Hi please try this solution, GPS software, usually containing maps of varying detail level, makes using a GPSmag-glass_10x10.gif for recreational purposes fun. This software enables you to see street-level or aerial maps of your neighborhood. For some GPS receivers that do not have a screen, it is necessary to use computer software to read the signals it has picked up.

  • Purchase software that is supported by both your computer and GPS. The system requirements should be clearly marked on the box.
