Unable to switch off alternate symbols and numbers

I do not know the key combination to switch off the alternate symbols such as when I pres the m key I get 0, or when I press p key I get *. Presently I am using another keyboard attached to the usb outlet to type this. My cat created this situation by taking a nap on the key board. I am sure the problem is easily resolved with the proper key combination. Unfortunately, I don't know them and have no instructions.

You should have a "fn" key or function. Press and hold that button and press the "NumLk" key. That should do it.

I had the same problem on my Sony Vaio; after reading your suggestion, I tried, but it did not work. However, I do have an Alternate key, which did the trick when pressed just before pressing the NumLk key. Without your idea, I would have gone nuts and called Sony.

My wifi is


Use the "Fn" key in combination with one of the F Function keys(example - F1 F2-F3 etc.) above the set of numeric keys. It will be a dual symbol key, meaning it will have wireless icon printed on it or the word "WiFi" in addition to the F number. It is usually one of the first 3 or 4 F keys. Remember, the "Fn" key must be pushed at the same time. It is a key combination like using <shift> and a regular alpha key to put a letter in CAPS.
Hope this helps Fixa! I am online if you need further help.

Brother MFC 290C Printer. Clean Unable 46


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try the following steps -

1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then 'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to 'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to 'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value which is I assume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press 'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3.
After you have entered this combination, the purge numeric value will be reset to 00000.
Please post comments if further you have the same problem..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Number pad


You can't make the alternate characters like °, ®, ♂, σ etc with a combination number pad. You need to have a seperate number pad. I use a $20 plug in keyboard.
