SOURCE: Light on keyboard is on

That is the scroll lock light. To turn it off, look on your keyboard for a button that says scroll and press it and the light should go off. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: What is the symbol with the light indicator for?

That's the Scroll Lock indicator.

While not really used for anything today, Scroll Lock used to serve a purpose in DOS text editors - if it was on, and you'd press the Down arrow on your keyboard, the document would scroll down. If it was off, you would move your cursor to the line below it.

It should also work on Microsoft Excel - try it. Open up Excel, make sure Scroll Lock is on, and press the Down or Up arrows. Now turn it off, and see what happens.

If you don't know how to turn it off, search for a key marked "Scroll Lock" or any short versions of that name. If it's in a different color, you may need to press Fun+ScrollLock for the light to go off.

Hello, When typing on my Mo Droid if I want my caps to stay on how do I get that to work.....I tried holding it down but maybe I am not doing it properly?


If you are typing using the touchscreen, the upper-case arrow, touched once, will upper-case the next letter you type and then back to lower case. It you touch the upper-case arrow twice in a row, you should see a green light come on directly over it. That keeps the caps lock on.
If you are using the slide-out keyboard, touch the upper case key once and you should see a triangle underneath the cursor on the screen. That will upper case the next letter you type. To get it to stay in upper case, hit the upper case button again and the triangle should change to a > symbol, point up, underneath the cursor. That should keep it in upper case mode. Don't hold the upper case button down, as that won't do anything. A third press returns it to normal (lower case).

Need to identify zena diode D513for JVC model #AV-20F702


Hi: I am asumming you are talking about a zener diode. The only way to identify one is by the electronics symbol on the board in question. Regular diodes symbols have an black arrow symbol with a line across the top of the arrow, on the other hand a zener diode has the same black arrow but the line aross the top of the arrow is staggered or crooked, sort of like the letter Z turned on its side.
