There is no problem.....barcode scanners are optical devices. You just can't make them do anything they weren't designed for.

Bright sunlight will "blind" the scanner, fog will obscure the reader...if you want a more concise explanation, call me at 1-866-306-7226

How can I see display better in sunlight?


Viewing screens that make use of "back lights" (LEDs, fluorescent, etc) to see / read the display in direct sunlight is often very difficult. Increasing the back lighting level is one method - but even when at 100% brightness, it is hard to overcome the sun. Shielding the screen from sunlight with your hand, body, etc., is often the only way that works effectively.

Foggy windows can be dangerous at night


Ever find yourself dealing with the windows fogging intensley during the day or night while raining or just other extreme weather conditions that come your way?
A real good product to use for this is called "Rain X", buy it at any major auto parts dept. apply to your windows prior to traveling, as per directions, and walla no more fogging.
Happy Motoring!!

Why do iPads etc have unreadable screens in sunlight


its because of technical reasons:
Reading the iPad under sunlight exposure will be more acceptable if you adjust iPad application font size to make larger it than average and increase screen brightness all the way up, then it's more easy to read.
- the latest iPad Air2 has an improved display and in the near future there will be less problems with reading in sunlight in new iPads coming....

On my Dell E193fpc monitor, the background lighting goes off after a few seconds. The actual Screen-image is still there (can be seen in bright sunlight). How can I get the backlighting to work proper


This sounds as though there might be a problem with the inverter (this is a component that supplies a high voltage for a tube(s) that illuminate the screen.

As there are high voltages on inverters, this is really a job for a repair shop.

Toyota Camry 2004 Defroster fogs windows.


2 possibilities:
1 - HVAC External Drain Tube stopped up with dirt, bee nest, etc. Hard to get to w/out a car lift. Need to clear and drain HVAC box.
2 - Leaking heater core inside HVAC box. Moisture from defog will smell sweet and be hard to clean off glass. Requires Dash removal and AC service to replace Heater Core. Very time consuming and Expensive A-Freeze fumes are also lethal if inhaled.

Try Solution #1 First, Least Expensive, Non-Lethal Condition.

I just loaded my new Fujifilm instax 210 for the first time with the correct film, loaded properly, and the prints are coming out black!


Well, black prints on an instant, or any camera, mean that they're unexposed. So, there are a few things to check - but in your case all will probably mean losing your remaining photos.

First, when you loaded the film, did you remove, or did the camera spit out, the initial black cardboard leader? If not, this is the source of your problem. This piece must come off the film pack first otherwise nothing else is going to work.

If that came out and you're still not getting photos, you're going to need to verify that you're both using the camera properly, and that the camera is functioning properly.

You'll need to be sure that you're getting enough light to get a good photo - darkness isn't going to give a good picture, but in some situations with some high speed films, neither is too bright of a condition. I've had this problem with my polaroid camera. The camera can't compensate for an extreme high-speed film and bright sunlight so it's not even giving an exposure. Don't ask me why, but it happens. If there's an option to change settings for outdoors/indoors, try that.

If that's also not your situation, you'll need to find a way to verify that the camera's shutter is actually opening and working properly. That's easier said than done, but if the other two situations don't help, feel free to contact for further assistance.

96 volvo 850 tail light has light bulb for fog lghts **** hey never turn on. how do they turn on or should i remove the bulbs.


There should be only one rear fog light, that would be the drivers side. There is a rocker switch up at the dash with a picture of a crude looking light. When you move this switch, it should put an orange light on the dash, at that point, your ONE rear foglight should be on. They are extremely useful during inclement weather. They are bright like your brake light, and allow cars coming up from behind you, to see you earlier

Renault Modus, REAR fog lamps faulty, not the bulbs.


hi from uk the rear foglams/high intensity lights will only come on if you have the headlaghts on dipped beam designed so if you req rear fogs ie the weather conditions poor/fog ? then you must req side light and head lights on too ? if you are certain bulbs are ok ? and the switch is ok ? try the above and the switch will also illuminate have you also checked the fuse ??

Fog lights


hi from uk the fog lghts? i assume front fog lamps ? the head lights have to be on dipped beam then the fogs will also work but in uk this is so as to prevent fogs only being used (blinding oncoming traffic ) if weather conditions req fogs to be used for poor visibility ? then the side/tail and h/lights must also be on like wise the rear fog light/s operate the same way hope this helps and makes perfect sense ?? all above is assuming bulbs have been checked and fuse/relay and power to each lamp ?

Running the camcorder continuously


Those camcorders are not intended to be surveillance cameras. There are however, steps you can take to ensure maximum longevity. * Keep the unit dry (avoid rain, inclement weather, etc.) * Ventilate the unit, i.e. make sure there is plenty of free air around the unit for cooling. * Shield from direct sunlight if possible * Avoid extremes of temperature and humidity.
