Question about Targus Defcon CL Security

2 Answers

Well, sometimes happens. Last week some "funny" guy (or girl) changed the code of my Defcon CL Laptop Lock and yes, usually a left my cable in unlock state, so he (she) had change this code, maybe he (she) hates me. So my laptop is lock at my office desktop until I find some way to unlock the cable. But I?m not thinking in trying 10.000 of possible combination. So, if you know an ?easy? way to fix it, it will be really helpful for me.

An easy way? Yeah, sure, make it easy for thieves to bypass the security. :-)

On the average, you'll only have to try 5000 combinations, out of the possible 10 thousand. Or, buy/borrow a heavy-duty pair of bolt-cutters -- see: http://www.hand-tools.us/images/pictures/northern-industrial-18in-bolt-cutters.jpg

and cut away.

HOW CAN I UNLOCK THE RADIO ON AN ACURA 3.2 CL TYPE S


Try this:
> Disconnect the battery cables: Negative {black} cable first, then Positive{red}.
> Touch and hold the metal ends of the cables together (hold together so they make constant contact) for at least 30 seconds.
> Reconnect cables to battery: Positive first, then Negative.
> Then try entering the code.

Sometimes the radio will lock (especially if the code has been typed in wrong several times) and this is a way to manually unlock it.

I replaced a headlight, now battery is dead..


Remove the Black cable first red cable last. To reinstall hook the red cable first and the black cable last. Remove any battery holds or brackets, some will have a small bracket at the bottom of the battery. It will hold the battery in place to keep it from moving front to back any other holds are to keep it in place during an accident or roll over.

I have lost my instructions to unlock this TARGUS PA400C DEFCON 1 AUDIBLE NOTEBOOK ALARM (PA400C) Do you know where I can find what the default code is?


this may help

Due to the nature of security devices, there is no "magic unlock" code for the Defcon device. To recover a lost combination:

·Set the tumblers to the last known combination.

·While applying pressure to the red release button, rotate the tumblers up one digit and then down one digit on each of the individual tumblers.

·For Example: If your last know combination was 565

1.Set the tumblers to 565

2.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 6 so that the combination is now set to 665 (If this is the set combination the red release button will move in)

3.Hold the red release button in and rotate the 1st tumbler to 4 so that the combination is now set to 465

4.If not found move onto the 2nd tumbler and repeat step 1-3

5.If not found move onto the 3rd tumbler and repeat step 1-3

The "CL" code is not an error! This means "Child Lock"!
