Open Question

Random color flashes

Dont ask me how i got it started in the first place. i think i pressed two of the buttons on the monitor at once, but since then the monitor will flash in different colors (red, then blue, then black, etc) and that is all. ive unplugged it, and tried pressing button combinations with no luck. anyone have any suggestions?

    Mine is doing exactly the same thing. It has nothing to do with the signal, either, because this occurs when my computer is turned off. If the monitor has power, it just rotates through those colors full-screen and no amount of button-pushing helps. This all happens with the computer OFF.

If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

I have lost instructions for playing uno flash


Requirements
  • 2 to 6 players
  • An Uno Flash playing unit
  • An Uno Flash card deck
Setup
Shuffle the deck and deal 7 cards face down to each player. Place the rest of the deck aside.

On the underside of the unit, set the turn timer switch to the desired length--this can be 4, 6, or an infinite amount of seconds (designated by the infinity symbol). Beginners may find that 6 or the infinite amount of seconds may be most appropriate. Switch the power to "1" or on, also found underneath.
Place the rest of the deck in either of the basins in the unit. This will be the draw pile. Flip one exposed card into the empty basin as a starter card.
Once the unit has been powered on, each player participating must press one of the 6 red buttons found around the circumference of the unit. A player should pick the one closest to them to avoid confusion with other player's buttons. These buttons will designate each player's turn for the remainder of the game.
Press the small yellow "Play/Pause" button to start the game.
Play
Immediately, players will notice a random selection of one player. This player will be designated by the lighting and flashing of their button. Note that there is no uniform turn order; the device picks a player at random each turn, including the same player of the last turn.

At this point, the chosen player must make a play based on the most recently exposed card. To make a play, a player will either discard a card into the exposed basin on the unit, draw cards from the draw pile, or may be skipped. These plays vary with each type of card, and will be explained.
Once a play has been made, that player must tap their red button to complete their turn. Plays must be made before a player taps their button.

If a player fails to make a play before their time is up, their play must be forfeited and that player must draw 2 cards. That player cannot discard for this turn. Players will know when a player has not made a play in their allotted time when their button is flashing and an alarm sound is emitted from the unit. Plays must be made before a player taps their button. Once the player has drawn their two cards, that player must resume play by pressing their red button.
Card Types and Sequencing
As with most types of Uno games, cards may only follow one another if they match in color and/or number. Special cards such as slap, skip, and draw cards may be played after the same type of special card or a card of the same color. For instance, a player may play a blue skip card after a yellow skip card. Normal cards may be placed after special cards if they match in color. Wildcards may be played at any time.
The following section explains the types of cards found in Flash Uno:


  • +2 draw card
Indicates that the next player chosen must draw 2 cards and may not discard.

The next player may avoid drawing two cards by placing another +2 (or +4) card during their turn. In this case, the cards to be drawn are delegated to the next player, unless of course, they also play a draw card. For instance, if two +2 cards are played in a row, the next player must draw the total of 4 cards.


  • Slap or hand card
When a player plays a slap card, he or she should not press their red button to complete their turn. Instead, after placing a slap card in the basin, that player should press the yellow "Uno" button on the unit. This will start a race between the other players.
After the "Uno" button has been pressed, the other participating players must race to tap their red buttons. The last player to do so will be indicated with a flashing red button. This player must draw 2 cards, and press their button to resume play.

  • Skip card
A skip card indicates that the next player chosen may not discard a card. They are skipped from their turn. The skipped player must press their button to resume play.


  • Wildcard
A wildcard may be played on top of any card. Once discarded on to the exposed pile, that player must verbally designate a new color for the next turn.

  • +4 Wildcard
A variant of the wildcard and the +2 card, this card allows the discarding player to specifiy a new color and require the next player to draw. Since the next player is only picking up cards, the new color must be played by the following player.


  • Normal Numbered Cards
Normal numbered cards are the most common card, and do not require any special actions to be taken by other players.

Win Condition

Players may win the game by becoming the first to discard all of their cards.

Before winning and when a player has only one remaining card, that player must continue in typical Uno fashion and say "Uno" to the other players. This should be done immediately after discarding one of two remaining cards. If another player notices and says this first, the player with one card must draw 2 more cards in penalty.

Strategy

New colors after wildcards should be chosen based on the discarders most common color.

Other Features and Information

Players may pause the game at any time with the small yellow "Play/Pause" button on the unit. This can be useful when one or more players cannot play for a small amount of time, such as a phone call.

You can evaluate how much time is remaining in a turn based on the rotating yellow lights on the unit. Each revolution indicates 2 seconds. For example, with a 6 second turn time, the lights will oscillate 3 times.

hope this help..... enjoy the game.....

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp


That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

The middle light keeps flashing 7 times then stops then repeats. the other button to change the paper type. i dont think its a ink issue possibly a paper one.


This mean multiple ink tanks of the same color installed or Ink tank in a wrong position.Check your ink tanks.This ink tanks has a memory chip.Sometimes this chip fails.
If the green light blinks with a orange 7 times this mean the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Acer LCD AL1711 Monitor Flashes Colors


Main power supply, and or the backplane power supply, and or the backplane lamps usually cause this.

The fix is to try new modules using the process of illimination. Once the defective modules are determined, the new ones must stay in the monitor.

That is the process used to service this monitor.

Monitor flashes primary colors


Your monitor has disco fever and will have to be shot in a midnight ritual in Palm Springs. Or, you will have to replace a diac circuit linking the display, power control, and power supply grounds (or possibly an overvolt protector of some sort in the power supply.) I don't know why for this kind of error the designer couldn't just put a message on the OSD in some random human language.
