How to reset sony dsc-w90 to factory setting


Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.

Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.

IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product.

Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera. Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.

Using a RESET button:
Locate the RESET button on the camera.
Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

Performing a manual power reset:
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.

If your camera is experiencing an issue and the issue is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset procedure above, then service may be required.

Hope this helps.

Rtc battery is low or cmos checksum is inconsistent


The RTC battery is a rechargeable Li-ion "clock" battery that's buried underneath the keyboard - it keeps date and time going when your computer is turned off. If you're getting this message, you should go follow the screen prompt, hit F1 to enter Setup, and set the date and time, leave the computer on for several hours to charge it (the clock battery recharges only with the computer turned on) and it should go away.

In the rare event that your RTC battery is bad, it's really up to you as to getting it replaced or not - it's a lotta work, and not all the battery vendors out there is competent enough to sell you the right kind of battery (installing a non-rechargeable Lithium battery will kill the thing outright, and there are actually people selling these....). Not having a working RTC battery doesn't really interfere with the workings of the computer - you'll just have to set date and time every time you start it, and you can do so manually or by downloading some freeware such as Atomic Clock Sync to automatically do it for you.

SIR/MAM. WHEN EVER I USE MY CAMCORDER GR-DVX9


There is often a small battery inside the unit or accessed from outside that holds the memory that the device was last set. Yours is defaulting to maximum zoom. And in fact it does.

Built-in Clock's Rechargeable Lithium Battery
To store the date/time in memory, the clock's rechargeable
lithium battery is integrated in the camcorder. While the
camcorder is connected to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger, or while the battery pack attached
to the camcorder continues to supply power, the clock's
rechargeable lithium battery is always charged. However,
if the camcorder is not used for approx. 3 months, the
clock's lithium battery will become discharged and the
date/time stored in memory will be lost. When this occurs,
first connect the camcorder to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger for over 24 hours to charge the
clock's rechargeable lithium battery. Then perform the
date/time setting before using the camcorder.
Note that the camcorder can be used without setting the
date/time.

Your manual in English. You can use a smartphone with Google translate and the camera feature to read what is shown on the camera in Japanese and change the operating language to English.

Motherboard timer is not working properly


Every PC motherboard has a battery. That battery serves two purposes: to feed the configuration memory (also called CMOS) and to feed the real time clock of the computer (the one that show the date and the time).

An indication it is time to change the motherboard battery is receiving one of the following error messages when you turn on your computer: CMOS CHECKSUM FAILURE, CMOS BATTERY STATE LOW, CMOS SYSTEM OPTIONS NOT SET and CMOS TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Another indicator of a low battery is a clock that, after being set, runs well while the computer is on, but shows the wrong time when the computer is turned on the following day (it is late).

The motherboard battery can be built using three different technologies: Nickel-cadmium (NiCd), NVRAM (Non-Volatile RAM) and Lithium (Li). The Lithium battery, which is a round one (the size of a coin) and can be easily found at watchmaker's and computer parts stores, has long been the most used type. To buy one of these batteries, all you have to do is to look for a model CR2032 one.

Replacing the motherboard lithium battery demands some care. It seems to be a simple task, but it is not.

The lithium battery may use basically three socket types: socket with upper tab (Figure 1), socket with lateral tab (Figure 2), and the socket into which the battery stands instead of lying (Figure 3).

Fig 14e23e4b.jpg

5671bf9.jpg

Fig 2

While the replacement of the battery in the socket with the lateral tab or of the one that stands is simple (Figures 2 and 3) – all you have to do is draw back the tab using your finger or a small screwdriver and replace it – the replacement of the batter that has an upper tab covering it (Figure 1) demands extra care. In this type of socket, if you raise the metallic tab to replace the battery, it will lose its pressure and will not make contact with the battery anymore, damaging the socket. In this case, the correct replacement of the battery in done pressing a small plastic lock at the side of the socket with the fingers or using a small screwdriver. That will allow the battery "to slide" laterally, not damaging the upper tab.
Whatever the socket used, don't forget that the replacement of the battery should be done while the computer is off.

Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol


from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.

SONY VAIO CMOS BATTERY LOCATION


Correction...

The CMOS battery is located under the system board, and is not accessible from under the keyboard.

The keyboard has to be removed in order to change the CMOS batter, (another reason why I don't like Sony laptops.)

Below is the batter I just pulled from a user's VGN-FS660\W 892cbd5.jpg
