Question about PDAs

Open Question

Coby DP-151 digital photo keychain - No display. It's just a blank blue screen. Can't turn it off, but after it runs out of juice, it will shut down. Plug it back into the computer, and all I get is the same blank blue screen again. Tried to contact Coby and they said they've never heard of this happening before. It's only a hew months old, but is just past its 90 day warranty period. Thanks, Debbie

    Just bought the DP-151,
    Connected it to USB port to charge the battery, and downloaded 2 images
    Checked back about 2 hours later.
    Blue screen.
    Will turn on/off but only see a blue screen.
    The PC software says all images are still on the device.

    after switching on,the display shows"windows mobile"and doesnot go further than that.

    I have the same problem but it's to my understanding that the warranty is actually one year not 90 days (nonetheless, I'm less than 90 days). It's turning into that these digital keychains are not what they're cracked up to be.

    What a piece!!! Please, somebody find a way to flash this ****** and fix it. I can't even get XP to recognize the device after lots of fiddling.

  • mjafla Dec 29, 2008

    Same ****, and the one year warranty is useless since it will cost you $6 U.S. to return ship it. Just buy something else, or figure out a way to flash it. I haven't had any luck even getting XP to recognize it.

SOURCE: Program will not run properly

I found this on an Amazon review. I hope it works for you:

1) Install the software on the CD (although the application won't open just yet)
2) Plug in the usb cable into the pc and the keychain and wait a minute (nothing happened here for me)
3) Unplug the cable that goes into the keychain, and then plug it back in. On the keychain screen, an option menu should come up that allows you to select either to power the keychain or to update the keychain via usb. Select the update option. (Note that drivers might install before this or maybe it found the driver I downloaded at the coby website?)
4) Now that you have selected the update option, you can now open the program that was installed off of the cd. Select the pictures you want, move them over, and then download them to the keychain.

Digital Photo Album with keychain


Sorry, I did figure out what I was doing wrong. Why should someone go to this web site if they have to end up paying you to get an answer. That dosent seem right.

All in all I was able to get my answers and I do not think that I will ever go to this web site again.

Thank you ( For what is the Question)

Software won't install coby photo viewer key chain


You need to make sure the usb cable is in all the way to the viewer. You have to push it hard. No silver showing. Always need the viewer plugged in first before starting the viewer program. After that it is pretty simple.

I have a coby dp-161 and cannot get the pictures to install.


We had the same problem and you won't believe how simple the actual fix was!!! When you plug the USB plug into the keychain device or whatever device you are using (in our case it was a keychain), make absolutely certain that the plug is pushed in all the way (it is tough to push in) until it actually clicks and all you see is the black part of the USB plug. Then try your software. It should work!!!

I just purchased a Sakar digital photo frame keychain. I downloaded 22 photos from my Documents displayed on Active Images Express but from there is where I'm having trouble getting the photos to the...


I feel your pain. Go to their web site and download a readable manual http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.sakar.com/images/resources/thumbs/12690%2520black.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.sakar.com/p-169.aspx%3Fcategoryid%3D155&usg=__UCOoniXB9VJe9zn80S4X1J8mj7o=&h=120&w=104&sz=9&hl=en&start=8&um=1&tbnid=5j97XYF3RmFbdM:&tbnh=88&tbnw=76&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsakar%2Bdigital%2Bphoto%2Bframe%2B12490%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GGLL_enUS305US305

The key is to hit the send photos button in the upper left hand corner of the main page. that will open up the photo viewer. Once there the instrutions actually make sense. going to select Photos and opening active image express will not down load the pictures, you have to get to the photo viewer v2.3. the manual is correct you just have to read if very carfully.

Good luck

Digital keychain


First, SKU is a vendor specific number (created by the bookstore, not the manufacturer) so that number really does us no good.. we need to know the manufacturer and model number..

First thing to do (if you are running Windows) is to make sure that the device is being recognised by the Device Manager..

Start > Run > devmgmt.msc (ok)

Look down the list and try to find the device.. or look for an exclamation point, meaning that the device is not installed correctly..

Let me know.

4700 photos no longer scrolling on screen saver


you may want to change the time after which the IPAQ turns itself off. If this time is too short, then Dockware may not be activated.
