According to the manual, I press the clear and the on button together. Then I press the reset button. I made sure fresh batteries are in the unit. I rarely used this item since I bought it brand new a few years ago. Has anyone encountered having a Franklin BIB-1450 go bad after a couple of years?

Here's the manual (.pdf file) for the Franklin "Merriam-Webster MWD-1450 Dictionary & Thesaurus User's Guide", which has a "Games" key to get to the Franklin Games Menu, which hopefully will let you use all the Games features of the WM 1200, since I can't find any evidence online that a "WM 1200" exists. http://support.radioshack.com/support_radios/doc73/73417.pdf
First, make sure the batteries are in the correct orientation. Then hold the CLEAR button and press the ON button. If that doesn't do it, straighten a paper clip and gently press the reset button located on the back in a pin-sized hole below the book card slot.
1. Hold CLEAR and press the on/off button(shaped like a circle). If nothing happens, try step 2. 2. Use a paper clip to gently press the reset button on your unit. The reset button is recessed in a pin-sized hole to the right of the book card slot. WARNING! Pressing the reset button with more than light pressure may permanently disable your product. In addition, resetting product erases settings and information entered in its built-in book, and in an installed bookcard.
If all else fails, replace the batteries with 2 new CR2032 batteries. I had a similar problem, and it was caused by dead batteries.
I had the same problem and I could not find my operating manual. I went on line to the Franklin Bookman KIB-640 operation manual. I discovered under the Troubleshooting chapter on page 14 a solution tht worke for me. One solution is to: Gentally hold the Clear Button down and gentally press the On/Off button. Continue gentally depress the Clear and On/Off keys for a few seconds to give the system to respond. when a response is seen, release the buttons, press press and immediately release the Clear button and then inter your desired request. THIS WORKED FOR ME !!!
If that does not work for you, use the end of a paper clip to gentally depress the recessed Reset button on the back of the Bookman.
