My golf simulator Sensor Pad is not being recognised by my software. It is P3ProSwing system. There is power to the sensor, I am connected to the laptop via a Serial-USB converter which has driver installed and is being recognised in Device Manager as COM6. Does anyone have any trouble-shooting advice for me?? Thanks

Hi,

If the unit was being recognized before and just recently failed, then it could possibly be a failure on the USB port of your laptop. try updating your driver(s). Depending on your OS (XP or Vista), you may need to check for any updates specifically for the USB.

Incidentally, some malwares and/or viruses have been known to cause similar types of faults so a virus scan would also be in order. You can also try an online virus scanner other than what your systen has. Additionally, try downloading a free copy of Ad-Aware and likewise run a full scan.

Other than the above, you may need to do a clean fresh re-install of the software.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Tip

Connect A Psx Pad To Pc, Warning soldering is involved..


If you are feeling adventurous ...

If you have a PlayStation and a PC, and do not have a pad for the Computer, or simply those that there are in the market seem to you too expensive or any you don't like, you have a great option here. It connects your PlayStation pad (anyone) to your PC conserving ALL its functionality thanks to the excellent driver DirectPad.

Advantages

*

It enjoys the ample range of pads that exists mainly for PlayStation and, of its compared price those of PC (speaking in terms quality - price).

*

They work for all pads including the dual - shock pads. Also, with the dual -shock ones you will be able to use both analog controls and the capacity for "vibrating" (Force Feedback) in Windows games that support it (Need Speed III, Incoming, Star Wars Rouge Squadron, Flight Simulator, Forsaken, etc). If you want to see the complete list of games that support the Force Feedback, look here.

*

You will be able to use ALL the buttons of PlayStation pad in your preferred games, altogether 10 if you see digitals or 16 of you use the analog control.

*

You can connect simultaneously up to two pads.

*

With the dual - shock pads you will be able to change between the digital control to analog during any game session.

*

If you already have standard PC pad you will be able to use it simultaneously without losing functionality in either of them (if connecting two joystick/pads by a Y connector and to the game port, you will only be able to use 2 buttons in each joystick/pad)

*

The assembly is not very complicated.

*

In theory it would have to work with any control system of game for PlayStation (pad of another mark, steering wheel, etc).

Disadvantages

*

You will only be able to use it in windows games, since driver it is programmed for DirectX.

*

If you want to use the dual - shock you will need an external power supply, or steal power from inside the computer.

*

The connection goes to the parallel port, which means that if you are going to use the printer you change connectors... but it is worth the trouble!

Words before beginning

Following with the preliminaries, I will going to make clear that you do not need any knowledge electronics, although knowing how to solder and know how to handle a multi - meter. If you do not have any idea, or don't want to do it get a friend who knows to help you.

Good luck!

Cant not get my integrayedwebcam to work i have a averatec al in one 18.4


Important notes
The computer communicates with cameras with photo softwares required installation. Photo software installed has to be compartible with the brand camera. Generic photo softwares installed on the computer can recognise any built-in cameras, camera connection attachements. Once, a photo software has been click opened, the features fucntionalities of capturing snap shots, editing, and saving are made possible from any available camera devcies. Built-in computer cameras have already installed softwares locatable on the menu programs task bars.

A separate camera used to acquire photos elswhere requires connections to the computer from which manipulations become possible. Any already existing photo media softwares would recognise to intergrate a camera connection. For the camera to function while connected to a computer would require the feature functions of an opened photo editing program.

Note 1
A computer built-in camera can perform on the network only by opening the photo windows software provided on the web. The internet web cam for example provides the opportunity to search and locate any cameras attached to the computer for network communications. Such an instance easily recognises the built-in computer camera. A separate camera would require connection compartibilities to the computer systems, and possibly the network type. A network that provides photo camera softwares incompartible to the cameras connected to the computer would require generic softwares installations for communcations to take place between camera, computer, and a network of computers.

Hi Folks: I would appreciate any help and suggestions: HP DesignJet 1055CM error 0A0020 006501D1 Thanks, Paul


"Error in calibrating the APS sensor"

APS= Air Pressure System - it provides air pressure to pump in to the ink cartridges, thus pumping ink to the printheads through the ink tubes.

First things to try
- Remove all Ink cartridges.
- Power down printer.
- Power on.
- Place cartridges in ink supply station, check if they are recognized.

- Replace the one cartridge that is almost empty.

- Check all cables and air tubes in the ink supply station. (you need to remove left cover of printer)
Make sure they are all properly connected and not damaged.
Make sure the air tubes are free running - NOT pinched or bent!

- Lastly,
When all above fails, replace faulty APS sensor and / or pressure valve.

The emachine model KAWE0 is with operating system windows xp sp1 doesnot recognise any usb device.


Good day sir, hi, usually its one or two ports that does not recorgnise a usb device, but if all ports does not recognise the usb device, check the CMOS setup. check this out;
  • one or two ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a local fault, try to check the CMOS setup, this could also be the port itself is the faulty one having loose connection.
  • all ports does not recognise the usb device, this is a system fault, check again the CMOS setup if the USB port is enabled, check the USB device itself also. to make sure use another pc to test the usb device.
A computer virus can also cause the usb port to malfunction, run an anti virus software, if possible you can reinstall the XP and test the USB port afterward.

If all else fails, you can buy a USB card and plug it on the expansion slot on your PC.

My new iPhone 3GS shuts down my computer when I plug it in


Hi I had the same problem, for a few days the new Iphone worked fine then started to appear as digital picture divice then just shut my Laptop down as soon as i plugged it in. I contacted Apple who were very helpfull and sent me 4 mails with advice. The one that worked for me was ...........
If you have anything running on your pc/Laptop with Logitech driver it conflicts with the apple drivers. I had a built in webcam on Laptop and when I typed Logitech in the search on start menu found it was run by that driver. I uninstalled it and deleted all the relavent files plugged Iphone in and no more problems except I now dont have a webcam but I thought small price to pay.

I hope this Helps
Best wishes

Re: golf simulator


Hi again,

Appreciate the update. Since as you posted you tried it to serial to serial then I would have to agree with you that the problem is with the hardware.

Perhaps this may be of help to you and whoever will look over the sensor. To my knowledge USB connection would at most require 4 wires (+5, GND, Data+ & Data-) while most serials would have 9 pins/connection/wires. This link can provide their pinouts.

Offhand, most likely suspect would be the cable or the connector specially the junction of the two.

Incidentally, this link may provide some technical background on the operations of the sensor pad though it would need a technical person to correlate information into actuality. I believe one has to be a member to be able to download the complete file (hopefully together with the illustrations).

Good luck with your project and sorry was not that much assistance.
