"Hi all,

maybe I can offer an explanation why some people have the RTC problem and others have not. After leaving my M10 on the shelf for about two months without switching it on (batteries were still fully charged!), I had to set the clock.
So I wondered what is going on. I pulled out the schematic of the M10s big brother, the D50.
The power supply section is rather complicated with lots of MOSFET switches and regulators, even one for the RTC battery. Checking the component values, I guesstimate that it takes about 30 to 40 hours to recharge an empty RTC battery - the state of the battery is in when you are asked to set time and date. If fully charged, you can expect 2000-3000 hours of RTC operation.
It seems to me that the D50 (and probably the M10) switch off completely when battery powered - not even the RTC battery is recharged!

So it depends on your use profile whether you have the dreaded "set date and time" problem or not. Regular use (best every day) keeps the RTC battery charged. in the future, I will let it go into sleep mode, and not switch it off. Another solution is to plug in the power supply before storage and let the M10 run for two days to top off the RTC battery, this should be sufficient for two months.

BTW if someone could send me a schematic of the M10, I could replace my educated guess with fact.

Greetings,

Rainer"

Jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s and dr-m10 loading continues to flash


if you have a jvc dvd vhs burner dr-mv1s or the dr-m10 with the loading that continues to flash with no control of the unit at all there is the first step to take witch is a master or hard reset. done by holding the stop and power buttons at the same time for 10 or more seconds till it powers of then on again.

if this does not work or has no reaction to the unit at all them repairs will have to be made.

i have scowered the internet for fixes for this issue and have found a few interesting things but nothing concrete at all. but lead me in the correct area of the issue. although jvc was fixing these for free at one time they are no longer servicing them under their "free fix"

the problem with the unit is the power supply and although i found that easily on the web. i could not find what the exact problem was untill i did my own diagnostic testing and found that capasitor c5207 on the power supply board was bad and buldging/leaking. it is a 1500uf 6.5v @85 degrees witch i used a 105degree due to the temp and relating the issue with a bad design flaw. so use the higher temp rating one to insure long lasting use.

don't forget to preform the master/hard reset previously mentioned above and you will be back up and running in no time.

good luck......

How to fix Time-of-day clock stopped


Is it actually stopped or does it return to a default time when the laptop is unplugged for a while?
I assume you have already reset the clock, it's located in control panel under Date & Time. You can also set the clock in the BIOS.
If the time does not advance at all, your motherboard will have to be replaced as the clock chip is not replaceable.
If the clock just needs to be reset every time you use the laptop, you might try leaving it plugged in overnight to recharge the clock battery. If that doesn't help, the clock battery is bad.

Wolf ovens getting err message after power outage


I had a Wolf 30F wall oven with a similar problem
after power outage. It wouldnt stop beeping with error message related
to temperature control. My solution was to turn power of at circuit
panel, then reset by pressing and holding the clear button for 5
seconds.

Also note: in my case I had to close the display
before switching the panel off. When I tried to the reset process with
the panel showing, it wouldn\'t reset.



To reset other
various parts of the control panel Instructions said:



Time-of-Day Clock

Immediately after the oven is installed, set
the 12-hour clock to the current time of day. It may need to be reset
after a prolonged power failure. The clock is visible on the control
panel during all modes. If the upper oven timer is set, the clock will
not be visible in the upper oven control panel display.



SETTING CLOCK

1) Touch CLOCK.

2) Touch number pads to
set current time of day.

3) Touch CLOCK or ENTER to start
clock.



24-HOUR CLOCK

The time-of-day clock can be
changed from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. After the clock has
been set, touch TEMPERATURE for three seconds, touch CLOCK, and then
touch ENTER. Follow the same sequence to change back to the standard
12-hour clock setting.



Fahrenheit to Celsius

The
oven can be changed from Fahrenheit (°F) temperature to Celsius
(°C).

I have forget my bios password please help me toshiba satelite pro M10


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.

If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.

If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

Many RTC
