You need to remove write protect tab on the mini DV tape you are using in Handycam. If it still doesnt work after removing the tab then take out the tape leave the camera off for few minutes and try another tape (dont forget to remove write protect tab).

If this helps, please vote...thankyou and good luck!

Tracfone's instructions for how to text do not work! what's up?


Texting on this model a bit tricky. First pull up name & number of person you want to text to, if it is in your phone. Then hit short dash line under the word 'options'. Make sure #1, 'create message' is highlighted. Hit ok button. Now type message. If you want a 'v', for example, you have to hit the #8 button 3x quickly. If you make a mistake, hit 'clr' button on top right to clear it & retype. So, for example, you want to send the word 'please'. You would have to hit the #7 button once, wit a second for the curser on screen to move to next space, then hit the # 5 button 3x quickly to get to the 'l', wait for curser, then hit #3 button 2x quickly to get to the 'e', etc. You get the drift. This model is not very conducive to sending longer texts. It's too time consuming & annoying. But short ones are ok if you have the patience. IF you need a space in between words, hit the '0' button once (that's zero, not 'o'). This is where text code comes in handy for shortening words, such as "LOL" for laughing out loud, etc.

Once you are through typing note & want to send it, just hit ok button to send. It may take a bit of time for message to go through. If you type a lot, it may take up more than 1 page, if this happens, the phone will ask you 'message is 3 pages, do you want to send now', or something like that. The longer the message is, the longer it will take to send.

One thing to keep in mind, before you start typing, make sure you hit the bottom lower key that has the asterisk & up arrow on it 3x quickly, or else when you type, it will be all garbley goop. If you want a capital letter, you also have to hit that same key once before you hit letter key. It only works for one letter at a time, so if you need to do more than one, say you want to type "DVD", you have to hit asterisk key once, then #3 button for 'D', then asterisk key again, then #8 button 3x for "V', etc. If you need a symbol or punctuation, use the bottom right hand key that has the # sign on it. Hit it once & some symbols come up, you will have to move over to the one you want by using outlined area around the 'ok' button. Once you get to symbol you want, hit 'ok' button it will add that symbol or punctuation to your text & return you to your text area.

If you do not see the symbol or punctuation you want, hit small dash under the word 'next' & it will take you to the next page. I think there are 7 pages of these different symbols & punctuation.

Hope all that helps. Email me at: ldgtreke4@aol.com, if you have any other questions. Put short note in subject box so I know what this is about. Good luck!

@tonymclau330

Try the following:

For Windows Vista / 7
1. Press the Fn+Left Arrow Key for brightness down and Fn+Right Arrow Key for brightness up (the Fn key is located at the left side of the space bar)
2. If that won't work, go to Start > type Power Options and click on the Power options icon.

My Toshiba DR430KU dvd recorder is not recording. I hit the record button, and the light comes on, saying that it is recording, but nothing gets recorded.


Hello

Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to record from. Try this step if you do not see a picture when trying to record from a source device onto the Device. After unplugging the cable and checking for any damage, plug the cables back and attempt to record the content to see if this resolved the problem.

Secure the power cable that attaches the device to an electrical source if the unit will not power on or if it intermittently loses power. If you think a malfunctioning surge protector may be at fault, you can 'bypass' the surge protector by plugging the device into an electrical outlet. Replace any surge protectors that appear to be malfunctioning and have an electrician examine any outlets that appear to be "dead."

Insert the disc that you would like to record

Press the "Edit Menu" button on the remote control while playing the disc or while playback is stopped.

Use the up and down arrows to select "DVD-Video Finalizing" in the on-screen menu, then press "Enter."

Under "Menu Create" select "None," then under "After play final title" select "Stop." Select "Next" to move to the next screen.

Select "Writing" in the lower right of the screen.

Select "Yes" or "No" to tell the machine if you want it to power down when finalizing is complete. Finalizing will then begin and a progress bar will appear.

Contact your electronics dealer or the Toshiba service department if the disc still does not finalize.

Is there any way to brighten my screen on my acer aspire 5601 lap top


Examine the keyboard. There should be a symbol on most of the function keys (F1, F2, etc.). Look for one that looks like a sun or lightbulb, either with an arrow pointing up or with the sun/lighbulb filled in. Hold the 'Fn' key, and tap the up/bright sun/lightbulb key a few times. The screen should increase in brightness.

If you cannot find the specified keys, you may be able to adjust brightness from inside Windows. Right click on the battery icon in the taskbar and open 'power options'. Look for a sun and moon with a sliding bar between them. You might also be able to adjust brightness by customizing your desktop (right click on the desktop and look for the proper menu).
