My remote is red light is flashing. I changed the batter and the battery in the unit is working. I can turn on the fireplace manually


  • The usual indication for a flashing light is a low battery. Suggest checking the remote again. Especially for corrosion at the battery terminals.
  • When you operate the remote will the receiver flash its LED indicator confirming that the command has been received.
  • The manual operation of the receiver located at the fireplace likely does not require batteries. For remote control operation good batteries are required.
  • If the red LED on the receiver is flashing the batteries need to be replaced.
  • If the LED at the receiver indicated that the command is received check the wires to the control valve from the receiver. The voltage is a very very low a millivolt signal.

Skytech receiver batteries keep going dead


Joe,

The heat from the fireplace can have an adverse effect on the life of the batteries. Sometimes simply re-positioning the receiver to a cooler location under the firebox and/or adding a heat-shield can improve battery performance with the Skytech remote receivers.
As a test, you could even place the receiver outside the fireplace for a period of time to gauge the effect of heat on the unit.


According to the owner's manual for the Skytech 3301 Thermostat Remote:


"For REMOTE RECEIVERS that operate on BATTERY POWER, these heat conditions can cause batteries to discharge when temperatures exceed 115 degrees F. Studies show that alkaline batteries, when exposed to a constant temperature of 120 degrees F, can lose up to 50% of their operating power. When the battery cools down, it will partially recharge itself, but constant heating and cooling will reduce the battery's normal life expectancy."

Hope this helps!

Hi, my gps nextar x3i-02 is not turning on, what can I do?


The problem with your nextar is either the battery or the charger is faulty. Either ways you need to test them both then replace the faulty part. That is why the gps receiver is not powering up.
Do not panic when your gps seems to be acting funny, There is no problem without a solution, and if it is beyond repair the solution will simply be that you replace the gps receiver.

Solution:
  1. Test the battery in another gps receiver, to see if it will power it on,
  2. Charge the battery in another gps receiver for about 2 hours with another charger then try to power it on,
  3. If it turns on, then it means the battery is okay and working fine, but if it does not turn on the other gps, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Solution:
  1. Test the charger on another gps receiver to see if it will work.
  2. If it does not work then you need to replace it,
  3. But if it works then you do not need to replace it.
After carrying out the test, you will be able to detect the problem and solve it.
Hope this information helped.

Cannot get mouse to work


1.
If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
3.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

5.
If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.
6.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

Battery replacement now ca't find satellite Garmin c320


More than likely when you reinstalled the gps receiver (the board with the wires connected to it) at the top of the receiver you did not position it properly. If it is not positioned properly it will not receive a satellite signal

The 2 red lights on the right side of the mouse receiver are on.


Hi,

usually the receiver is powered via the connection to the pc. ( ps2 style sockets usually green and purple ) dependant upon make/model of wireless. i would suggest replacing the batterys. on the mouse. these do use more power than the keyboard. roughly 5 to 1 or more.
after replacing the batteries. ( 2 x AA Or 2 x AAA ) press the button on the bottom of the mouse, and should have a button on the reciever. to syncronise the pair together.

In regards to your question, you may have 2 lights on the receiver. 1 for transmit, and 1 for receive.

new batteries should solve this problem.

Thankyou for using Fixya.

Mike @ Compurepair.
