Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.

Hope this helps. Bud

The main unit will not connect with the remote. I have tryed everything that the manual has said to do.. But it just won't work.. They seem to be working but not comunicating with each other..


The WS20 has very poor engineering.

1. Open battery compartments of all remotes and the base unit.
2. The following steps must be completed within a small time window of a minute or two.
3. Remove and replace one battery from the base (reset button on base may also work)
4. Remove and replace one battery on first remote.
5. You have 10 seconds to set the channel number, suggest you set channel 2 first if you have 2 remotes. Once you stop setting the channel on the remote, 10 seconds later remote 2 should sync with the base.
6. Remove and replace one battery on second remote.
7. You have 10 seconds to set the channel number, if you have only two remotes do nothing and it should synchronize 10 seconds after you replaced the battery as remote number 1.
8. If the base unit can receive the time signal from Colorado USA, it should eventually get the time and date correct, give it time. Alternatively you can set the time and date manually. However, if the base is trying to get the time signal, most of the controls freeze up, to unfreeze them press and hold the + button for something like 5 to 10 seconds, then the unit should be available for manual setup.

If you loose connection to one remote or change batteries, repeat all of the above.

In summary, it a POS unit .... :)

How to set time on the southwestern bell answer machine FA982B


I went to the southwesten bell freedom phone site on the web. Found answering machines.  My old machine was not listed, so I found instructions for a later machine.
The method for setting time was similar.  I tried it and it worked fine.
Your high prices prompted me to be less lazy.

Echo on line and dropped calls with A88


I dont know on this exact phone but here is for a similar see if this will work for you.

First make sure the User profile you activated has the Ring type set to Repeat so the ringtone works continually
rather than ringing once & stopping! Go to Main menu => Settings => User profiles => [Select a profile] => Customize => Ring type = Repeat
Save the settings & as you back out of the menus make sure the profile is Activated, as it should have a large green checkmark next to it.
If this setting is already set to the Repeat option, and your ringtone does repeat, but just doesn't seem to ring enough times, read below.

Also see if your phone has the below settings somewhere in your phone's menu system. As firmware are different so can the menu system
be different. If you cannot follow the exact path to find the option below, look in other areas of your phone's settings for the settings, but
know that your phone just may not have the same settings anywhere.
Call History => General Settings => Sim1 Call Settings => Call Divert => Divert if no Answer => Activate => To Voice Mail =>
Now choose the time length you require, 5, 10 15, 20, 25 or 30 seconds.

My whirpol calypso washer don't running, appear fl and ce


"FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lock condition in order for "FL" to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display
------------------------------------
If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, "CE" flashes and the unit beeps once.

Some common causes of "CE" errors include:

• Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.
• Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
• Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a "CE" error will occur.
• Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
• Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly


Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.
