    the stereo is a philips FW C139 mini hi-fi system. The power suply is through a socket, when plugged in no light comes on (i think it used to) but the date appears. There was a remote control but its lost so im not sure if it works with the remote. The stereo belongs to a special needs client of mine who possibly has broken it due to pressing buttons too much? but i was wondering if it could have locked and if there was anything that can be done. the stereo has def not been shaken or anything as its locked in a box. cheers for any help x

I would like to find the age of my old console stereo.

Just google your stereo model and put manual after it. Usually the manual displays a date of manufacturing. You can usually find stereo info on a plaque or sticker on the bottom or back of the stereo

Samsung Galaxy tab3: Display time and date wrong.. system time and date ok.

When clocks went forward for British Summertime I noticed that although tablet system time was correct the weather app display on home screen stayed 1 hour behind.

The fix it to enable 'location' (GPS) then click sync circle..then all was fine..after that could turn of location and stil kept correct time.

Clock and date settings

Depends on the type of BSI ( computer under steering column) and type of the display, using peugeot software you can configure date and time, or you just need refit the original radio for few minuts, set date and time and take it off again and put back the non original stereo again, that will take only 15 minuts

Hi, my display is not woking on my JVC PC 55. Although, the stereo DOES WORK !! It doesn't even light up. Why is tghis? Thanks in advance, Joel

Possible failure of the display unit or the power to the display unit. This is irrespective of the functioning of the set as the main processor is working and the display operates on the sub-processor.
remove panel and check the flexible strip and the voltage to the unit to confirm.

We were wondering if there is a way where we can turn off the date and time from showing when we play back what has been recorded. On a big plasma and lcd television, this information (although useful) we...

Most cameras have the option of turning the date and time display off or on during recording. Unfortunately, if you recorded with the date and time on, then it has become part of the image and can not be removed.

I don't know how to change the time on the clock on my pioneer deh 2300 car stereo

With the power OFF, press and hold the FUNC button until date and time are displayed, use the UP/DN/RT/LT toggle to change values and positions, once time and date are set, turn unit ON.

Dim Display

On newer stereos, you might have to experiment with the "panel" wire.

I just installed a VR3, and discovered that the more voltage on the "panel" wire, the dimmer the display.

With no connection, you get full (daytime) brightness. With full voltage, you blank the display.

I wired mine up to the car's instrument lights through a 10Kohm trim resistor so I could adjust the "night" intensity. But if I dim the car's instrument lights, the stereo gets brighter. Oops.

Older car -- I can't just flip a software bit. ;)

But I gather a lot of new stereos are like this. The display on my (factory) stereo in the Mitsu dims a fixed amount when the lights come on, but doesn't adjust with the car's instrument dimmer.
