How do I open the settings on my new Sanyo-av FWBP505F. We can pull it up on the TV screen but cannot get into it.

Press the Home button on the Blu-ray player remote. Then use the left/right arrows to select Settings (the icon with the gears). Then press OK (in the center of the arrow keys). Use the left/right arrows to select the category you want to work with and press OK again. Inside of the category sub-menu, use the up/down arrows to navigate the options and press OK to access a specific one. This is shown on page 31 of the manual.

The manual for the FWBP505F is available from Sanyo on the product site: . Click on the Downloads link; it's currently the second link. The direct link to the Owner's manual appears as in my history today.

I hope this helps. If you are using a universal remote, check that the code you have supplied correctly matches the needed buttons. If you are using the original remote for the FWBP505F, do you have problems with the unit responding to other button presses? If so, you may need a replacement remote. You may be able to order a replacement from Sanyo support here: or call 800-877-5032 . The model number for the remote is
NC088UH . I have found a few other sites that claim to have the remote. One source is .

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried

When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

My gateway 450rog computer screen wont come on after i press the power button why

Make sure the machine has power.

The battery might be dead, so connect your notebook to the AC power adapter and plug the adapter into a working AC outlet.

If you have a power strip or surge protector, make sure it is on.

If you are having trouble with battery power, recharge it if it has been fully discharged or replace it if necessary.

Check to make sure the computer is not in "sleep" or "hibernate" mode.

Press a key or the touchpad and wait for it to respond.

Try pressing the power button.

Make sure that you fully engage the power button.

You should press and hold the button for at least half a second but no more than three seconds for the machine to power on.

Adjust the screen's display brightness because it may be too dark. Press and hold the "FN" key and press the key with the icon to increase brightness.

This icon looks like an "up" arrow and a picture of the sun.

hope this helps

How do you charge your wii console

The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.

  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Hi, My Samsung DVD player remote would not respond when power button pushed on. When DVD power turned on Manually and DVD loaded the remote would not respond to the play, arrow buttons eirther?? My LG...

    If the buttons on the case are working but the buttons on the remote don't then it's clearly a fault with the remote.
    Each button in the remote is made out of 2 wires on the electronics board that are joined by a small patch of conductive paint situated on the rear of the rubber button. If something gets in there, like water or dirt or the patch flakes out, the contact is no longer made and the button no longer works. The remote will have to be dismantled by popping the clips on the periphery with a sharp tool, the rubber strip holding the buttons will have to be washed and the board wiped clean. If the buttons still don't work after that then the remote is dead, you will have to get another one.

    My ipod touch touchscreen has stopped working. ipod is fully charged and all buttons work but i cannot unlock. touchscreen is not responding

    Try and press the top button and the home button at the same time for about 7 seconds.

    Hopefully your Ipod closes down and you will see the Apple logo on your screen.

    Just let it initialize and syncronize.

    This will hopefully help. If not you might need go to your Apple retailer and leave it for repair.

    Good luck
