How do I take mute off my vetch Han


If it is like mine, you have to first be on a call, then press the mute button. That turns it on. Then press it again. That turns it off and the screen displays "microphone on"

My vetch phone shows "new voicemail". how do I delete this


To clear the "New Voicemail" display from the handset
is a slightly different procedure for each model of cordless
phone.

Try the following (tested on my own cs6229 phone):

press [menu]
scroll to "Clr voicemail"
press [select]
display reads "Turn Off Indicator?"
press [select]
phone will (chirp) press [off ]

Or, this one (tested on my own cs6114 phone):
press [menu]
scroll to "Settings"
press [select]
scroll to "Clr voicemail"
press [select]
display reads "Reset VM Icon?"
press [select]
phone will (chirp) press [off ] [off ]

Other models, check your manual. The model number
is on a small sticker under the battery in the handset --

How do you make the number that tell time light up darker so you can read it.


If you want to make the display brighter (remember, it auto dims in low light):
1. Hold down the "clock set" button while pressing the "volume" button up or down (up for brighter, down for dimmer).

Display not bright enough on Bose AWR1-1W clock radio


Yes...within a range. The display will automatically lighten and darken depending on the amount of light in the room. During the day or when there are bright lights in the room, the display will go to full brightness. When the lights go off or the room is otherwise darkened, the display will shift down to a lower brightness. You can make the "lower brightness" a bit brighter by holding down the CLOCK SET button and pressing the 'volume up' button.

I have a CDA 7892 alpine works great but would like the display to be brighter seems a bit dim manual does not say this model can be adjusted or am i missing it any help thanks in advance


You didn't specify if you wanted the display brighter in the daytime while headlights are off or if it is too dim when the headlights are on, with respect to the rest of the instrument panel illumination. Too bright is easier to deal with but too dim is tough. If it is always too dim under but daytime and night time conditions the only way to improve brightness would be to very gently disassemble the front panel (easier if it is the removable type) and determine what provides the back lighting. If there are tiny LEDS you could painstakingly add more LEDS or swap them out for brighter LEDS. There could be a lot of guesswork determining if this or that LED was brighter than what is in the unit as built. It may just be easier to live with it as-is.

The time display numbers are very dim and I can hardly read them.


There are two main causes for this dimming:

1. Dust & other particle buildup on the front of the display glass and the rear of the display window. This can be cleaned.

Cleaning the display is easy, but you need to be careful so you don't break the glass.

First you would unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

Then see the video here that shows you how to remove your control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes.

Next, disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the plastic frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) remove your circuit board.

Using a soft cloth (since paper towels can scratch) lightly dampened with non-ammonia cleaner (since ammonia can damage some polycarbonate plastics), gently wipe off the front of the glass.

Then gently wipe off the back side of the plastic display window in the plastic control panel frame.

Reassemble, reinstall, and power it up, and it should be brighter, sometimes a whole lot brighter!

If that does not brighten it up enough, then...

2. Your vacuum display tube is wearing out and either the VFD display tube or the whole control circuit board must be replaced, depending on your model number, which you didn't mention.

If you'll contact me with your model number, I can give you an estimate and free do it yourself info.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Dim Digital Display


Connie P, Unfortunately it is not possible to make the display brighter. The only solution is to replace the entire clock/timer. The price for the part is less then a hundred dollars and if you will give me the complete model number and a color, I can help you to find the best deal. Gendos...post back
