Siemens model jsjs-210 door bell manual to chnge radio band

Siemens door chime jsjs-210
Without doubt the worst piece of design I've ever encountered.
The battery housing on the chimer is so large that on closing the lid with the batteries fitted they pop out, nothing holds them in place other than the contact elements - the case snaps shut with quite a jolt and the batteries just pop out...had to use a padded envelope cut to size to keep them in place.
Also the button unit is dreadful - the button isn't actually a button - it's a light, pushing the button just flexes the circuit board and activates a small push sensor on the reverse of the circuit board!?! WHY? A button that isn't a button? The sensor is also too short to touch the rear of the casing and thereby close the circuit - had to pad this out with 2 bits of cardboard...too much it will ring all the time, too little it won't connect.
Please do not buy this product - if you have return it, it is dreadful - and from Siemens it's not even funny.
Apologies for not answering the question directly - I was also searching for a manual for this, to maybe figure out why this device is so badly constructed.

My sony ereader prs-650 is stuck on sleep mode and it wont do anything ,, it wont charge when connected to the computer

The Sony Reader used a special type of display; the LCD can retain an image without having power. It takes power while changing the pages. In most of the cases, if the power is fully discharged, the LCD will keep the last image that was displayed it makes an impression that the Reader is frozen. However, the Actual thing is, the screen retains the last image on the screen and there is no power to change the pages. These type of situations can be resolved by charging the Reader sufficiently.

Each step in my solution is a possible resolution. Hence I suggest that you perform each step and check the operation.

Charge the battery fully by connecting to a computer or by using a compatible AC Adaptor. It may take a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) to display the charging symbol if the Reader is fully drained in its last use.

Once the reader is charged fully (at least 45 minutes), slide the power button to turn ON.

Perform a soft reset. We can perform a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the Reader.

After the RESET button has been pressed, slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device again. If the Indicator light next to the power button on the Reader device is yellow, the unit is attempting to start up. If this is the case, allow it a few moments to complete startup.
If the Reader is still not charging up properly, connect the Reader to computer or AC Adaptor and then press the reset button.

Disconnect the Reader device from the computer (if applicable) and then slide the POWER switch to activate the Reader device. Check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is yellow (indicating it is turning on) and if the unit is responding

If the unit is still frozen, connect it again to the computer or AC adapter and while connected, check if the Indicator light next to the power switch on the Reader device is red . If this light is red , allow the Reader device to charge for one hour so there is sufficient charge for troubleshooting.

If the issue persists, perform a hard reset to resolve the issue. Please follow the steps to perform a hard reset:


Under certain circumstances, moisture condensation can occur. Moisture condensation can be caused by moving the Reader device between temperature extremes or if the Reader device has come in direct contact with moisture. If you suspect moisture as the cause, allow the Reader device to sit for a few hours before attempting to turn it back on

Communication to the opener fails. The little green light on the door opener goes out. It eventually returns and then the door will work again.

Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn’t work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

I think I've accidentally activated the lock feature...

does logic board on motor have a small pushbutton or dip slide switches? If pushbutton, push it for 10 seconds. let do. panel light stop blinking? Unit somehow got into lock mode, even though you do not have lock button. If this has stopped light from blinking, you now have to code remotes and or keypad back in. Push the little buton for 1 second and push a remote. Light bulbs on unit should blink. Take next remote (or keypad) and repeat this sequence for each one. Let me know. If you have safety beams, liftmaster should help you. w/o beams they will not support.

Cannot operate svr-925 digital recorder, need manual

How to Record:
1. Make sure HOLD switch (on side of unit with pocket clip) is set to off position (slide to right is off - to left would be hold)
2. For best results set unit with mic(rophone) which is on top of unit toward sound source and press REC/STOP button (Top button on front of unit just below LCD display). Recording will begin and will be indicated on LCD display.
> Red Record LED will be on and the message number, recording time will be displayed on the LCD.
3. To stop recording, press REC/STOP button one time.
* If no other buttons are pressed within 1 minute at stop position, it will power off automatically.
4. Pause during recording by simply pressing MODE/PAUSE button- press button again to resume.

There is a Voice Operated System (VOS) Recording button on left side also. You can record with voice activation to conserve recording space but I have found that you lose a portion of the recorded sound as it activates and if there is no sound for a very few minutes the unit powers off and you will get nothing further recorded. I recomend just keeping VOS in off position.

5. To erase a recording: Select the message number you want to erase and while it is stopped (the message number will appear in LCD with the length of recording showing also)
Press and hold the ERASE button until the LCD begins blinking "ERASE" then, while it's blinking simply press the erase button again and the recording will be erased.

6. To play back a recorded message find your message by "toggling" the switch on the right side of the unit that says INDEX. That switch is the fast forward/reverse play etc. To Play simply push the switch in. This button/switch takes a little practice to use but the Play portion is straight forward. Use the front buttons to pause and stop during playback.

Hope this helps.

How do I open the case of a Compaq evo d51S to upgrade memory?

Press the two side buttons, slide the case forwards, then lift it up and off. Sounds too easy, doesn't it?

The case can sometimes become stuck, requiring a bit more force. With the PC on a stable flat surface, press the side buttons and **** the top forwards vigorously. Be sure to press the rearward part of the side buttons so that the forward part starts to protrude a bit. This releases the catch behind the forward part of the button.

The case needs to slide forward about an inch to be able to lift off.

If your case is still not moving, you have probably encountered the dreaded stuck case syndrome. Looking at the case from the front, the left-hand side is stuck but the right-hand side releases. You are not alone, this has happened to more than one of us. I'm still not 100% clear on where the case jams, but there is a way to free it up.

NOTE: No tools are required to free the case cover, but you will most likely need pliers to straighten the clips afterwards!

Press both side buttons and slide the top cover forward as far as you can. Looking at the case from the front, twist the cover a little to allow the right-hand side to clear the clips. Once clear, lift up the right-hand side. It will catch on the chassis and, if fitted, the floppy-drive eject button. Gently ease the front of the cover forward so that the floppy-drive eject button clears the drive.

Next, slowly and firmly lift the right-hand side up and out past the chassis. This requires a bit of force (strength), but should not require violence (hitting).

If the case still won't release properly on the left-hand (CD/DVD) side, continue pivoting the case up from the right-hand side. At some point (cover probably around 60-75 degrees to its usual horizontal position), you will feel the metal clips resist. Release a little to see if the case is now free to move. If it is not, lift further, bending the clips as you go. Suddenly the case will be free to move forward! (You should not need to get to 90 degrees).

Once the cover slides forward, you will need to raise and lower it to work the clips out. The rear clips should release before the front ones and you can slowly pivot the cover out.

You will need to use pliers to straighten the clips before replacing the cover.

When replacing the cover, check to make sure that the cover slides easily back and forth before pushing it all the way back. The cover metal will only bend so many times before it breaks so you don't want to do this process more than once.

No reverse

Your unit could have several problems. First you need to remove the bottom of the unit. Turn it upside down and unwind the power cord from the storage area. Remove the 6 star screws. Remove the bottom cover. Now you can access the cycle solenoid and lever. From this point on you will need to be very careful. Plug the unit in. Turn on and depress the forward button. Observe the cycle lever and how it works. It could be out of adjustment and not pulling the mechanism far enough in the reverse mode. If that is the case adjust the solenoid location so the lever pulls the mechanism further in reverse mode. If adjustment is not the problem check for dried grease on the cycle cam. Clean all the grease off with an electrical degreaser (do the adjustments and the degreasing with the power disconnected). The unit uses special grease (high temp) which comes from Kodak. You should be able to try it without grease to see if the problem is solved. If it is then you will need to get some grease part #TL2730. If you do not feel confident doing any of the procedures you will need to find a shop that can work on these units. Most people are not familiar with them as they are fairly old. Cost should not exceed $50 US. Good luck.
