Have you upgraded the motor control firmware and the hand controller firmware to the latest version? If not see this web site which contains instructions for updating the firmware.

This could also be caused by a USB-Serial adapter cable. Try another brand. The one sold by www.scopestuff.com works --- along with a Keyspan brand Serial-USB adapter.

Important: When replacing either the vehicle keys, PCM, or TDM and the 10-Minute Relearn Procedure is used, ensure that the appropriate calibration is selected for the replacement component on the calibration selection screen of the service programming system. The appropriate calibrations for specific vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system components are described below.
• When preparing a TDM for replacement, the Prepare Module For TDM Setup Procedure calibration is required. This allows the retrieval of required information from the TDM prior to its replacement.
• When learning vehicle keys and the 10-Minute Relearn Procedure is used, the Vehicle Theft Deterrent Learn For Learning Replacement Keys calibration is required. This clears all previously learned keys from the TDM and enables the TDM to learn new vehicle keys. For learning additional vehicle keys, refer to Adding Keys .
• When replacing a TDM or ECM and the 10-Minute Relearn Procedure is used, the VTD Learn for Powertrain calibration is required. This clears the previously learned fuel continue password in the ECM and enables the ECM to learn the fuel continue password of the new TDM.
Important: When replacing a TDM with a GM SPO Replacement Part, insure the Setup a New TDM procedure is performed prior to the 10-Minute Relearn Procedure.
Connect a scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Ensure that all power consuming devices are turned OFF on the vehicle.
With a scan tool, select Request Info. under Service Programming System and follow the scan tool on-screen instructions.
Disconnect the scan tool from the vehicle and connect the scan tool to a Techline Terminal with the current Service Programming System (SPS) software.
On the Techline Terminal, select Service Programming System and follow the Techline Terminal on-screen instructions. Ensure the correct programming procedure is selected based on the component being replaced or programmed. See Important above.
Disconnect the scan tool from the Techline Terminal and re-connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
With a master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, select Program ECU under Service Programming System.
At this point the scan tool must remain connected for the duration of the 10-Minute Relearn Procedure.

Lifebook tablet stylus doesnt work


Hello, Lori -

If you received a user's guide for your laptop when you purchased it, check the manual, starting on page 30 for instructions on using the stylus (called a pen) in the guide.

If you do not have a user's guide for your laptop, you can find and download one here (free):
http://solutions.us.fujitsu.com/www/content/pdf/SupportGuides/T4220_UG_B5FJ-4091-01EN-00.pdf

You will need Adobe Reader software (free) loaded on your laptop. After you download the guide, save it with a file name you can find easily - something like: Fujitsu Lifebook T4220 Manual. If your laptop is connected to a printer, you can print the guide for easy reference.

The information on using the stylus / pen begins on image 40 (page 30) of the PDF document.

Information from page 31 (image 41 in the PDF document) regarding the pen:

CALIBRATING THE PEN
In order to ensure accurate tracking between the pen
and cursor, you must run the Touch Screen Calibration
Utility before you use the active digitizer for the first
time, or after you change the display resolution.
To run the calibration utility:
1. Go to Start -> Control Panel and double-click on
the Tablet and Pen Settings icon.
2. Click Calibrate.
3. Adjust the display of your Tablet PC to a comfort-
able angle.
4. Using the pen, firmly touch the screen directly on
the (+) symbol; the (+) symbol will move to the
next location.
5. Repeat step 4 in the four corners, then click OK.

Best wishes.

Thinking of buying this, but wondering if it can connect to computers and cameras


This is fine for planetary and lunar views with a camera. The mount is manual drive so not suitable for deep sky objects with a camera (except perhaps M42)
Orion and Celestron make inexpensive, lightweight usb cameras for telescopes. Suggest you use the scope with your eyes until you get used to finding and tracking objects.
Serious astro photographers use much bigger scopes with motorized GEM (German Equatorial Mount). Takes lots of practice and $$$

Problem with the HP LaserJet 4730mfp All-In-One Printer Unable to use ADF. Red light under start button.


Do the calibration for the scanner.

1. Place letter- or A4-size paper in tray 1, and adjust the side guides.
2. On the control-panel Home screen, scroll to and touch Administration.
3. Touch Troubleshooting.
4. Touch Calibrate Scanner.
5. Touch Calibrate to print the first pass of the calibration target(Print out).
6. Place the first pass of the calibration target face-down in tray 1 so that the arrows are facing into the MFP.
7. Touch Start to print the second pass.
8. Place the calibration target face-up into the ADF, and adjust the side guides.
9. After the calibration target has passed through the ADF once, reposition it face down in the ADF and touch Start.
10. Place the calibration target face-down on the scanner glass, touch Start, and scan the page.
After this pass, the calibration is complete.
Calibration will fails if print quality is not good...ensure that print quality must be in order..
Once calibration successfully done, restart printer several times & verify start button light, if its green every time 'u' re success. if not cleaning required for CCD which is major work & not suggestable..

I need to find out the weiring diagrame to install it


Equalizers Like a crossover, the equalizer gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. You'll find EQs that are designed to be installed in the dash, above or below your receiver. Others are designed to be mounted in a remote location, like the trunk. Either way, the wiring connections required will be the same. To install:
1. Mounting the equalizer:
A remote-mount EQ can be securely mounted with just a few screws. Anywhere between the receiver and the amp is fine. Most people mount the EQ in the trunk near their amp, especially if you have more than one amp. This also makes it easier to add additional amps later. You should mount it where it will be easy to get to so that you can make adjustments without too much trouble. Don't mount your EQ directly on steel — you will invite noise problems. Instead, install it on a non-conductive board and attach the board to the car body (or use rubber grommets under the screws to isolate the crossover).
An in-dash EQ can be mounted above or below your in-dash receiver, assuming that you have space available in the dash. This will require custom installation work. Another option is installation below your dash, in a universal under-dash mounting kit. To install the under-dash mounting kit, attach it to the mounting surface using the supplied self-tapping screws. In most cases, the use of an under-dash kit will require modifications to the kit or to the mounting surface.
3a-xover.jpg Locate the remote turn-on lead behind your radio (usually a blue wire). 3b-xover.jpg Connect the turn-on lead from your amplifier wiring kit to the blue wire. You can wrap the bare wire ends together and cover with electrical tape, or use solder. 2. Making the power connections:Your EQ will require 12-volt power, ground, and turn-on signal connections.
  • To obtain 12-volt power: Cut a length of small-gauge cable (16 gauge is typically sufficient) long enough to reach from the EQ location to your vehicle's fuse panel. Strip one end of the wire, and attach it to the EQ's power input. This may require a crimp-on connector, or bare wire might be sufficient, depending on the equipment you're installing. Route the wire from the EQ location to your car's fuse panel. Using a fuse tap, connect the wire to a source of switched 12V power.
  • To ground the EQ: Remove a bolt near the EQ mounting location. Crimp a ring terminal to one end of a length of small-gauge wire, and then bolt the terminal tightly to the vehicle's metal chassis. Scrape away any paint and clean the bolt location thoroughly. If you can't find a convenient ground screw or bolt, drill a hole for one — be careful not to drill into the gas tank or a gas or brake line.
  • Making the turn-on connection: In most cases, you can tap into your in-dash receiver's amp turn-on lead to get a turn-on signal for your EQ. Remove the receiver from the dash to access the turn-on wire (usually a blue wire). For step-by-step instructions on removing your vehicle's radio, see your vehicle-specific Crutchfield MasterSheet™, or read our In-Dash Receiver Installation Guide. Strip the insulation off a small section of this wire coming from the radio. Strip the insulation off another small-gauge cable that's long enough to reach from the in-dash receiver to the EQ, then connect the two with crimp caps or solder. Wrap the solder or crimp connection with electrical tape to guard against a short. Using wire ties to secure the wire, route the turn-on lead behind your dash all the way to the EQ mounting location.
3. Making the signal connections:
In most cases, you'll be routing RCA cables from your in-dash receiver's preamp outputs to the inputs of your EQ. While your receiver is out of the dash to access the turn on lead, connect a set of RCA patch cables (long enough to reach your crossover in its mounting location) to these outputs, taping them together so they won't come apart. Route the patch cables (again using wire ties) behind the dash, and to the crossover mounting location.
