Question about Telex SpinWise 7-824D (301689000) DVD±RW Burner
Old Telex CD duplicator tower- 3 drives
I keep getting % signs instead of readable display.
How do I do a hard/factory reset?
Hey how are you?
ok here is what you can try,
1.) open it up and locat the head (main controll unit, the thing with the lcd display)
2.) On the board is a battery or a jumper, its a 3 pin jumper move the jumper to the other 2 pins for a bit then move it back,,
Itf its a battery just remove it for a sec..
3.) If that fails or it doesnt have a jumper or battery then your system is hard embedded.
1.) CHANGE THE IDE CABLES FROM TYHE HEAD(CONTROLLER) TO ALL DRIVES
2.) IF THAT FAILS CHANGE THE HEAD (ctrntroller)
its rather simple to replace the cables, just unjack and jack in the new one,, if you are changing the head just unscrey it to pus it foward, unjack the cables and then jack in the the cables in the new head , slide it back it and screw it up..
Good luack and let me know what hgappens.

Before some days i also searched something like this but no serious result. I continue but i think a heavy hummer may be a solution tool.

This is a general solution for your problem...am not familiar with that specific piece of equipment but it may help. Let's skip by the usual turn on and turn off which you have apparently tried and go to item 1....Assuming you have or can get from their site or via an email request to their support group the proc (procedure) that is the best way to go.
Item 2...But if not then A) check and see if it has a reset switch (doubtful but poke around....anything you press...or perhaps a combination of keys which is not untypical) ...might do it for you. B) Either an eprom or active ram stores you 'bios" equivalent. If the latter and there is a battery, removing it and replacing it or shorting out the pins - if they have that ability as do motherboards on computers - you might get lucky. If a charged capacitor which powers ram is there removing and replacing the ram memory will also do it. C) If both of these or all of the prior does not work then you may have a real electronics problem. Checking for bulging capacitors or burnt ones or burnt spots on the board takes just a minute or two (if you can access it easily) and lastly....probably not worth it....getting a schematic and checking component values can solve the problem ultimately.
The one question I would have is...if the % signs cover the entire screen that could be a default "message" for a bad display....hmmm....good luck. Can offer you no help beyound this. Tango.

Tips for a great answer:
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
electrical extensions IDE,SATA
the leads from your
"((motherboard to your hard drive))"
make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just
replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd
3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electric
extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its
connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end
up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the
drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the
graphics card and clean the socket
