    I canceled the solar programs and reprogrammed them. It is working fine. If the Aux starts acting up again I am going to reset and reprogam everything. I have had it for 6 years. Maybe too many program changes? Maybe it just needs to be reset. If it was something physical, it wouldn't work perfectly everytime it is reprogammed. Has to be software.

    Me again. While I was reprogramming the solar it changed to Extra Aux. What? Turns out, after a lot of digging, that if a sensor is not hooked up the "Solar" changes to "Extra Aux". Checked diagnostics and the solar sensor showed "open". I am guessing that the sensor was failing and was in the Extra Aux state when the solar was supposed to turn on. I couldn't figure out how the "Solar" changed to "Extra Aux" while I was programming it until I looked at an installation manual for a One Touch. The sensor is up high on the roof where I dare not go (tile roof-crack). I am going to cut the wire and splice in a new sensor (7790 for rs) and put it lower on the roof where I can safely reach it.

    I believe you are wrong Mike. I don't know if you didn't read the comments but in case you didn't....the problem was caused by a failing solar sensor. You don't "Enable" solar settings. At least not onan rs6. Solar is enabled by hooking a solar sensor up to 3 and 4. In my case the solar sensor was showing "open" which caused the "Solar" tag to change to "Extra Aux". I am getting a new sensor and I will confirm this when I get it hooked up but I am pretty sure this is correct.

You have to go into the programming and "Enable" the Settings for Solar Operation.

The on/off button quit working. I can't manually turn lights on/off. In wall timer ST01AC


Thank you for including timer model number.
You have almond-colored ST01AC timer that worked before and then stopped working.

The manual override no longer turns lights on-and-off.
Manual override works by pushing in timer door, and also by pushing on-off button on face of timer.
1) Try pushing on-off button directly instead of timer door, in case little plastic point on timer door has worn down. If timer door is worn down, maybe add a few layers of tape so door can push button again.

2) If timer on-off button is not working, then timer may be defective -or- timer CR2 battery needs to be replaced, and then timer reset and reprogrammed.

3) Defective timer: timer has 1 year limited warranty against workmanship defect
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service.aspx

4) Replace CR2 battery, reset timer, and reprogram timer and see if functionality is restored.
If timer is not restored, then timer is going bad.
Open following link for illustration of battery replacement, steps for resetting timer, and illustrated re-programming steps.

Hp deskjet f380 can not print


Have you recently change print cartridges. This happened to me on another printer. I went to Costco to refill my print cartridges and it worked for awhile than it stopped printing. After a lot of headache, the problem was the print cartridges. It needs to be reprogrammed or else buy a new official HP print cartridge. I went back to Costco and they reprogrammed it and it worked.

OUTSIDE FLOOD LIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON FOR 2 DAYS. IS THE SOLAR CELL TIMER BROKEN? HOW DO I TURN LIGHTS OFF?


I cannot find a manual on this timer.

If I was at your house, I would try the following:
1) Read the manual troubleshooting section
2) Check for dirt over the sensor
3) Turn off the circuit breaker to timer/ or unplug from wall
4) Re-power timer and then Re-program timer
5) If these steps don't work, the timer may have gone bad

And lastly, since many people do not have the manual, press it flat in a book for two days, scan it just like you scan a photograph or have Office Depot scan it onto a disk. Load photo of manual onto Imgur or Flikr photo-sharing and then post that link in a fixya question so others can see the manual

Radio displays EEEE, wont accept code


Did you enter the code in the proper sequence? I reprogrammed mine and it took quite awhile to reset. The manual will tell you how long it takes. It works fine now. Hope this helps.

Verizon FIOS remote buttons all work except Volume. Sony Trinitron WEGA remote has to be used. Volume is Fixed. Can something be done to control volume with the Verizon remote?


I had the same problem with a Sony Trinitron KV-32FS320 32" TV. I reset the remote to factory default.
  • Press and hold STB
  • While holding STB, press OK
  • Release both keys, wait for device keys to blink twice
  • Press 9-0-0. The STB key will blink three times
Then I reprogrammed the TV control.
  • Turn your television on
  • Press STB to enter Set Top Box mode
  • Press and hold TV
  • While holding TV, press OK
  • Release both keys, wait for device keys to blink twice
  • Press 1-1-2-7. This is one of the Sony TV codes
After this, the volume + and - worked to control the TV.
  • Program any other devices, such as DVD using procedure similar to above.
I hope this works for you.
