You are probable in a format mode of some kind. Remove the batteries, turn off for 30 sec., this will set all to default settings.

How to clear a tab setting. Have tried Code Tab set (Clear) and this does not work.

Refer to the op. manual if you still have it... if not you can download one FREE at .
As a last resort you can try a complete clear...this will reset machine back to factory defaults and clear memory tho.... so if you want to try it... Switch the machine OFF. Then while holding down the MARGIN RELEASE key switch the power back ON.
The unit will begin printing a pre-programmed test page, let it run for half a line and then switch the machine back OFF. Wait 5~10 seconds then switch the unit back On and the machine will be back to Factory defaults.

How do I release the set tabs

Try pressing key marked "T clr", tab clear, and then press return key.If that doesn't work, remove the AA batteries and turn machine on. If tabs are cleared, you can re-install the batteries. The only job the batteries perform is to keep your tabs and margin sets in memory when you turn machine off.

Just like a computer browser, whenever you browse the internet, the G1 will download images, text, passwords, etc from all sites accessed. it places this info in a place called a 'Cache' can get so full it will prevent pages from loading. to fix this, clear your cache. there are 2 ways to do this.....



after doing that, turn off and on the handheld and try it again. if you keep up on doing this everytime youre done browsing the web, it wont happen again.

good luck :)
