My hd 3 v5061u is on test mode how do i get it off

With your camcorder powered ON, and set to VCR / playback, there should show on the screen (viewer) something indicating "Menu" or a "FN" (Function) option. Select "Menu" (or Function icon to lead to the Menu). Check through the Menu options to find "Mode", and find the option for Normal Recording or playback, as opposed to "Test Mode", or "Demonstration Mode".

If this does not solve the problem, try this: Turn the camera OFF, remove camera battery, re-install battery, turn camera ON and see if that Re-set the camera. If not, it might be resolved by manually resetting the time and date. Then go to the Menu again to set Mode to normal recording or playback.

If those do not correct the problem, there is no shame in calling the camera company to speak with Tech-services. That's what they are there for.

When i press direct navigator on my remote to get to the options it displays "NAVI". What does this mean?

NAVI on the front panel display simply means on-screen menu navigation - ideal for unfinalised DVDs so you can check the recorded contents - such as the football or a music program. It is generally a normal user function whenever a readable (DVD-RAM/DVD-R/DVD-RW) disc is inserted. Pressing [OPTION] button brings a popup menu offering you options such as PLAYBACK DELETE etc. for the appropriate discs. Once you press [DIRECT NAVIGATOR] or [RETURN] on remote, NAVI should disappear from the front display.


This image is an example for a Panasonic DMR-EZ47V VCR/DVD combo (which I own), but the basic principle is the same. It should not cause you any real concern, unless it doesn't allow you to access the contents of a DVD you recorded in it. I hope this helps somewhat.

    I left my Vtech phone in New York, left for Europe and forgot to set the answering machine on. When I call in I get a factory recorded announcement that I'm not available, etc. I have my PIN # with me,...

    Can you please specify the exact model of the phone? Because the steps in accessing it remotely varies from model to model. Anyway, you can try to follow the steps posted here and then test:

    Remote operation allows you to control the functions of the Answering System when you
    are away from the Base,and call from an outside telephone line. The Answering
    System cannot be accessed from another telephone on the same line. You can access
    many of the Answering System functons from a remote location, such as listening to
    messages, changing recorded announcements, and recording memos.
    Remote operation can only be accessed from a touch tone telephone. If the remote phone
    is set to pulse dialing, switch it tone. If tone dialing is not available, you will not be able
    to access the Answering System.
    Note: All function codes should be entered within 2 seconds in order to activate Remote
    To Activate Remote Operation From a Different Telephone Line
    1. If the Answering System is OFF, you can dial your telephone number and wait for
    the Answering System to answer your call after 10 rings. An announcement, "Please
    enter your security code" is given, and you enter your security code to use remote
    2. If the Answering System is ON, it will answer your call and begin playing the currently
    selected announcement (as with any incoming call).
    3. Enter # followed by your 2 digit security code during the announcement. The
    default security code is 19.
    4. Once the security code is received, a double confirmation beep will be given, and
    you are in Remote Operation mode. You can then control the Answering Machine
    functions using the telephone keypad.
    5. The user can also enter the Remote Operation mode during message recording. The
    procedure is the same as step 3. The recording will be stopped after entering the
    valid security code "s#xx " and the incomplete message will be deleted. If " 0s"
    is entered, the Answering System will release the line, but the recorded message
    will still be retained.
    6. If the user enters a wrong security code, the system will release the line.
    Playing Messages Remotely
    1. Press " #1 ", " #2 " or " #3 " on the touch tone keypad to play the messages in the
    corresponding mailbox.
    2. The system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX new messages and XX old
    messages" and the system will playback the new message only. If there are no new
    messages, the system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX old messages. On
    the other hand, in the absence of old messages, the system will announce only the
    number of new messages.
    Repeat Messages During Playback
    1. Press "#4" once during message playback to repeat the current message.
    2. Press "#4" twice within 2 seconds to skip to the previous message.
    Skip Messages During Playback
    1. Press "#6" once to skip forward to the next message.
    Stop Message Playback
    1. Pressing "#5" during message playback will stop playback.
    Deleting Messages
    1. Press "#9" once during message playback to delete the current message.
    Note: Playback will pause if "#" or " " is entered. Answering System will wait for the
    command in the following 2 seconds. If no further tone is entered, playback will be resumed.
    Memo Recording
    1. Press " 8".
    2. After selecting the mailbox by entering command "1", "2", "3", You will hear, "Now
    recording", followed by a beep.
    3. Enter "#5" to stop recording when you have finished.
    Change OGM Remotely
    1. Enter " 7" to record a new OGM. You will hear, "Now recording", followed by a
    beep to signal start of recording.
    2. Press "#5" to stop recording. Your new OGM will playback automatically.
    Check OGM1 Remotely
    Enter "#7" to review OGM. You will hear playback of OGM followed by a beep.
    Turning Answering System ON or OFF
    Pressing "#0" toggles the Answering System ON/OFF. "Answer machine on", or "Answer
    machine off" will be announced, followed by a beep.
    Voice Menu for Remote Operation
    The system provides two pre-recorded voice menus to help you during remote operation.
    Press " 5", and you will hear the simple voice menu.
    The simple voice menu is as follows:
    • Press "#1" to play mailbox 1.
    • Press "#2" to play mailbox 2.
    • Press "#3" to play mailbox 3.
    • Press "#5" to stop.
    • Press "#4" to repeat the message.
    • Press "#6" to skip the message.
    • Press "#9" to erase the message.
    • Press " 5" for other functions.
    (To advance voice menu)
    The advanced voice menu is as follows:
    • Press "#7" to review outgoing message.
    • Press " 7" to record outgoing message.
    • Press " 8" to record memo.
    • Press "#4" twice to repeat previous message.
    • Press "#0" to turn the system on or off.
    • Press " 5" to return to the simple voice menu.
    Pressing any function code will stop the voice menu, and perform the corresponding
    Exiting Remote Operation
    1. Enter " 0" on the touch tone keypad to exit remote operation mode. The Answering
    System confirms your action with a long beep and then disconnects.
    2. The Answering System also automatically disconnects if no key is pressed within 20
    seconds during remote operation.

    I wish to create my own message on the answer-phone.


    The easiest way to gain access into an answering machine is to use it's preset access code. This is the access code set at default by the vendor on the given device. The best thing about this is that most users don't bother to change the access code to their device, if they even know that they have such a feature. Even worse yet, some of the manuals given for the device by it's vendor even tells the user that changing the access code is optional, not necessary. So of course since most people only do what they feel is necessary, these access codes are many times if not usually set at default. So what I'm going to do for you now is list the different popular vendors out there, and include their preset access codes, how to use them, and controls to use after gaining access. Keep in mind that if there is no model number beside the vendor, then that means that the information given works on most of their models. Likewise of course if there is a model identification beside the vendor name (placed in parenthesis) then that of course means that the information provided is model dependant. So let's begin, shall we?

    1) AT&T - preset access code is 10 - when the answering machine picks up punch in the access code
    7 - play messages
    6 - play new messages
    # - stop/pause
    2 - repeat message
    5 - skip message
    4* - record announcement (push # to end recording)
    41 - play announcement
    * - record memo
    33 - delete all messages
    3 - delete selected
    0 - turn system on
    88 - turn system off
    99 - change remote code

    2) BellSouth - preset access code is 555, Mailbox 1: 555, 2: 666, 3: 777, 4: 888 - when the machine picks up hit * and then punch in the access code
    0 - help (use this to get the commands available)

    3) Freestyle - preset access code is 000 - when the machine picks up push in the D button and then punch in the access code
    2 - play all messages
    3 - play new messages
    4 - skip back during messages
    5 - delete during messages
    6 - skip forward during messages
    8 - play outgoing message
    9 - record new outgoing message
    0 - set answering machine on/off
    1 - hear main menu

    4) Vtech (VT650) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during announcement
    #4 - repeat message
    #5 - pause message
    #6 - skip to next message
    #7 - delete message
    #8 - skip backwards
    #9 - stop/exit any function
    *8 - room monitor

    5) Vtech (VT2650/VT2468) - preset access code is 50 - enter access code during announcement
    #4 - repeat message
    #6 - skips message
    #5 - stops
    #9 - delete message
    #7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

    6) Vtech (HK5886) - preset access code is 48 - enter access code during announcement
    #1,2,3 - play new or old messages
    #4 - repeat message
    #6 - skip message
    #5 - stop
    #9 - delete message
    #7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

    7) Olympia (OL2410) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during accouncement
    1,2,3 - select and play messages
    4 - repeat message
    44 - ignore message
    6 - play next message
    7 - delete current message
    8 - record memo
    9 - record announce (5 to stop)
    0 - toggle answer on/off
    * - play help menu

    8) Doro - preset access code is 321 - enter access code right after outgoing message has played (or during)
    1 - repeat/skip to previous message
    2 - play/pause message
    3 - skip to next message
    4 - play current outgoing message
    5 - record new outgoing message
    6 - stop
    7 - erase current message
    8 - switch off answering machine
    9 - switch on answering machine/select outgoing message
    0 - (after playback) erases all messages
    # - end playback
    ## - end call

    9) Virgin Pulse cordless phone - preset access code is 123 - enter access code during outgoing message
    1 - review current message
    2 - skip to next message
    3 - erase the current message
    4 - play all or new messages
    7 - repeat voice menu
    0 - turn on/off TAD

    10) Panasonic - preset access code is 11 or 1111 - enter access code during outgoing message
    4 - new message playback
    5 - all message playback
    1 - repeat
    2 - skip
    9 - stop
    7 - record new announcement (use 9 to end recording)

    There are also a few random vendors that don't automatically preset an access code on the machine, forcing it's user to set one up him/herself. This is a small step forward as far as security is concerned, but every vendor I saw that did this still used a mere 2-digit access code. To test and see if your target has this type of setup press # when the machine start, and then press 0. If the machine returns to the annoucement then you know this is the kind of machine it is. Of course, in reality, this isn't all that bad of a scheme since you have 100 different combinations available for the access code. However, most users simply set these access codes as 11, 22, 69, etc. So yeah, just try it out. If it disconnects you after so many tries, call back from another payphone (which you should be using in this case).

    Thanks for contacting Fixya

    Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue

    Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

    Images recorded to internal memory

    They should be accessible by removing the memory card (if present) and powering up the camera. You should be able to view them using the playback icon (arrow). Access to erasing them should then be through the menu.
