    I bought one off of Amazon that was used, and I can't seem to get past the original user information to set my mom up with her account. Any suggestions? I can't find anyone who will support it to help me. What a waste of $50 if I can't get this to work for her. And what phone number do we put in to connect to her email?

I don't think this machine is still supported. My mother also wants me to "resurrect" hers, but the original Internet service provider -- Unbound Communications (a subsidiary of Vtech) -- does not appear to still be in business. If this company was hard coded into the set up program it may not be usable today.

How to program control with light switch


If I understand correctly, you have the Lutron Pico wireless control
And you have the Lutron Maestro companion switch or companion dimmer
Pico will not work with ordinary wall switch or dimmer >> it has to be a companion product from Lutron

I have read the PICO wireless manual, and it shows no instructions for communicating with the companion wireless switch or companion wireless dimmer
http://www.lutron.com/Products/SingleRoomControls/MaestroWireless/Pages/Overview.aspx

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369-144f_Pico_Wireless_Control_SpecSub%20%286%29.pdf

I have read the 120V Companion switch manual and it shows no instructions for communicating with the PICO wireless control

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/030865c.pdf

1-800-523-9466 for technical support
Technical support online appears at page bottom

Normally manuals give you some clue as to how the product works.
The PICO manual says it's easy to control lights (I guess it's easy for mind-readers)
There seems to be no answer or hint when working with the PICO.
I think Lutron tech support is where you go from here.

Let us know what you discover

What is the vtech cpmpanion laptop for? It was bought at a garage sale


The companion was used as a standalone (no computer needed) email machine. Email accounts were provided through Yahoo! and Internet connection was provided through a company called Unbound Communication (a subsidiary of Vtech) Unbound does not appear to exist today. Don't know if the machine can be used with another provider, the Unbound company may have been hard programmed in the machine.

At the request of my mother, who had bought one of these machines new in 2001, I'm looking to see if the machine can still be used. It is limited in what it can do (no images, etc) but it was an easy to use (one button connections) machine.

I just bought a new looking vtech e mail postbox companion 2 at a thrift store. Can this product still be used? How much does the service cost? Thank you


The original Internet service provider -- Unbound Communications (a subsidiary of Vtech) -- appears to be no longer in existence. If this company was hard coded into the set up program, it may not be usable today.

I also am looking into this for my mother who purchased one new in 2001 and is looking to start using it again.

Bose Companion 5 Problems


email support@bose.com or contact a Bose Support Specialist in Germany; or call US support at 1-800-367-4008. Something very odd is happening here. You are using the same laptop, correct? If not, let me know, as there are some things to try. If Bose has a solution, I'd love to hear it.

Bose Companion 5 Down!


Hi,

While I can not second guess your technician, perhaps the problem may not be that severe. The Bose Companion 5 is only on standby when plug (having no power switch) and therefore the power supply circuitry is the only one working. Chances are it will be only the +5VDC logic supply that is really turned on at that instant. All others would be OFF hence my belief that the problem may be limited to the PSU and/or part of the logic board. Perhaps you can suggest to your tech to test the logic board (motherboard) using an external +5 supply. All others can be be tested and repaired using component replacement.

Should you not be comfortable going this route, perhaps you best bet would then be to get in touch with Bose or their local representative.

You can try looking over the country here and the page will display a Bose contact information. Say the Philippines would be:
Eleksis Marketing Corporation
Unit 206 Fox Square Building
53 Connecticut Street
Northeast Greenhills
San Juan City, Metro Manila, 1500, Philippines
Tel-1: 632 724-9566
Tel-2: 632 724-7527
Fax: 632 724-0176
Email: Click here to send them an email

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
