Take the unit outside so that it has a clear view to the open sky, turn the unit on, then push the reset onthe side(you need a paper clip). let in sit outside to Aguire the satellites. this may take upto 30 minutes. if that does not work, you can try the latest update. bill

My Genius Traveler 6000x wireless mouse suddenly stopped working

Double check the batteries, although the lights work and the computer sees it, the voltage could drop low enough to stop the sensors.

next, try another USB device in that plug. USB port can go bad.

If the port works, it could be the wireless USB connector starting to fail, if they are bumped to hard sideways it can cause loose connections internally.

then, you might just need to update drivers. Computer update s can conflict with drivers cause devices toss top working.

LG DLP Flat screen suddenly lost its red color

The Lamp would not cause this problem. If you are using Componet Input only, I would look to see if the Red Signal Cable has pulled off the Input Jack or is bad. If you have no Red in any input and also do not have Red on the User Menue, It would probably be the Opical Engine.
I hope this helps,

MU203 mouse not working

Replace the batteries and try this.
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Remote or Reciever?

It could be the receiver LED. But I would try cleaning the remote pads first and infrared LED.
