Question about Symbol PDT6842-NIS632EU Portable Data Terminal

1 Answer

Sleep mode I need to be able to prevent or extend the sleep mode on the PDT6842 units we are using. My guys are on production and this effects their money when they have to keep siging back into the system. I checked the settings on the AS400 and there is no timeout set for the hours we are using the guns.

You will need to exit the application and exit to dos. From the d: prompt, type cfg24 and that will give you the configuration menus. From there you will find the sleep mode settings.

I'd try another keyboard to make sure it isn't a stuck key and if it still does it somehow the space bar is putting the pc into hibernate or sleep mode. For that you need to look at your power settings under control panel and just disable the mode. It is not normally used on desktops but it still puts them to sleep when it is enabled. I have a dedicated sleep button on my keyboard I cannot disable. And once every so often I grab my keyboard the wrong way and manage to shut it down.

My iphone 4 will not turn on even after charging

You can try a hard restart, which is holding down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for around 15 seconds until the Apple logo shows up. If that doesn't work you might have to restore your iPhone. If you want to restore your iPhone, you have to connect it to your computer. Hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. Then after 10 seconds release ONLY the Sleep/Wake button. Your computer should say that your iPhone is now in recovery mode and you can now restore it via iTunes.

When I switch my laptop on light lights up and then goes off. Sleep mode light comes on. No matter what you do nothing happens. The sleep light does not go off. I have to remove the battery to turn it off.

Possible that the memory is faulty , the main board is faulty and an error on the system driver.
You will need to check the main board as it need to power up and then only boot from memory.

My ipod wont turn horizontal, i.e ( calculator, text, music )

Try a soft reset first:
1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top of the unit until a red slider appears
2. Drag the slider.
3. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If a soft reset doesn't work, try a hard reset:
Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

If this does not solve the issue the sensor is damaged and will need to be replaced.
