    I have already tried your solution and slide show still does not work. As you suggested I moved the handset away from the slide show screen and still nothing. Any other suggestions.

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 12, 2010

    Have already done everything you suggested except press reset button. There does no appear to be a reset button on this unit. Next suggestion?

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 13, 2010

    Your suggestion was the same as #1 & #2. Have tried this again. Left it unplug and disconnected for 1-1/2 hours. Still nothing. Any new suggestions?

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 13, 2010

    The frame mode settings will not display. Incoming calls do not display the phone #. The screen is blank. When you press the mode settings the screen becomes lightly lit but will not display any options.

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 13, 2010

    No. Your suggestion (#3) was the same as #1 and #2. I have already responded to suggestion #4. Beginning to think the unit is garbage and that there is no solution.

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 13, 2010

    This is a repeat of suggestions 1, 2 and 3. Isn't there anything new you have to suggest?

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 14, 2010

    I like your suggestion, but none of those buttons work: menu/ok, exit and the arrow buttons. When you press any one of those buttons, nothing appears on the screen. Anything else I might try before I toss the unit?

  • nutnhoneywhe Apr 14, 2010

    Your explanation still does not explain why none of the keys (menu/ok, exit, or arrows up, down, forward or backwards) on the phone will work. There is no memory card in the slot. When we bought the phone there were approx. 6 pictures factory installed that would run automatically. They do not work. A memory card does not work. The menu and navigational buttons do not work. The screen is blank.

Unplug the power from the base for 10+ minutes and then plug it back in. It will probably work for a week, then stop again. Remove the battery; to get the cover off the back, slide it toward the top of the phone, it should slide easily. A lot of people are having this issue, some are saying they have to unplug the phone for an hour or even overnight before the issue resolves itself.

If this works, you have the same issue many of the other GE phones have been having.

It may be actually a small technical error. If you have another set of screen savers, just change the screensaver to that set and see that if that set works. If it does, you can change it back to your earlier one and wait to see it work again. And a small advice, these so called screen savers do not really 'save' the screens. Rather, it consumes a lot of power and make your equipment hot. So don't go for it, if it is not so necessary.

I called GE support. I was told
1. unplug power from base
2. unplug phone connection from base
3. remove cover and battery from handset
4. wait 10 minutes
5. put battery back, reattach phone connection and power

It solved the problem.

Take care

Hello.
I would suggest you to unplug the unit. Then unplug the phone cord from the base. After that, disconnect the battery from the handsets. Then, wait for 10 minutes and put everything back together in reverse order. Next connect the handset battery, plug in the phone cord and the connect the unit.

Or
Just unplug the power from the base, unplug the phone connection from the base, remove the cover and battery of the handset. You have to wait for 10 minutes then put everything back together.
If you still can't see the slideshow, try to press reset button.

1. Unplug the Unit
2. Unplug the Phone Cord
3. Disconnect the Battery from the Handset
4. Wait 10-15 minutes… and put back together in Reverse Order
5. Connect the Handset Battery

In addition,i will suggest you change the battery simply because it's among the core accessories that controls the photo slide show.

    hello,i will suggest you get a new one,because it seems this has gone beyond repair after several suggestions.
    Wish you good luck.
    TAKE CARE.


  • Hammid Disu Apr 15, 2010

    HELLO,since you said the screen is blank,i guess the pictures in the phone are corrupted,and you also made mention of the memory cards not working,this has to do with either the memory card that came with it is corrupted and this could be reformatted or you get another memory card,and all you need to do is just to install the pictures you wish to display for your slideshow.
    if this persist,that is not having the slide show working,i would suggest you take the phone to the company or store you got it from so as for them to use your warranty cover to work on it for you.
    Since you said non of the pictures were displaying and ot even the memory card worked when you got the phone,
    1.the screen is bad and it can be fixed by an expert
    2.you need to complain to the company that the memory card has never worked on the phone
    3.i would really appreciate if you can adhere to the advice overleaf.

    wish you good luck,

    TAKE CARE,YOU ARE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

Pandigital Photo Frame - Slideshow leaves out Photos?


Size limit depends on exact model. Anything over 4GB will almost certainly not work consistently with any. model 1GB or less should work with any model. None of the images should be stored in folders, and all should be jpeg format (.jpg). If any of them have been edited, they may be saved as Progressive jpeg or something similar even if the extension (.jpg) remains the same. If you resave the missing photos in as JPEG in MS Paint, it should ensure they are compatible. You may have to format the memory card and re-add the photos to make sure it will work,
