SOURCE: Our carbon monoxide dectector model

CO2 and Smoke detectors have an internal sensor that has a design life of 5 years from the date of manufacture. After the 5 years you start getting false alarms due to the sensor itself exceeding its average life span. On the combination CO2 and Smoke deterctors you will often see a manufacture date or a replace by date inside the cover on the main board.
On AC powered models such as this one you will just get the error when the sensor fails. If you got the full 5+ years out of your CO2 sensor then you should be happy that it served a full life expectancy.

Some Wiki data on CO2 detectors:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_monoxide_detector

This paragragh appears under installation

The gas sensors in CO alarms have a limited and indeterminable life span, typically two to five years. The test button on a CO alarm only tests the battery and circuitry not the sensor. CO alarms should be tested with an external source of calibrated test gas, as recommended by the latest version of NFPA 720. Alarms over five years old should be replaced but they should be checked on installation and at least annually during the manufacturers warranty period.

SOURCE: light flashing on carbon monoxide

This could be serious!
Has it been doing this long?
Do you have the manual for it?
What is the beeping code?-- Just 'error'?, or is it telling you that you have HIGH CO Level !?
Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer--- You can't smell it, but it can kill!

The Fire Department has a meter to check it out-- Give them a call and tell them what you have!

I am sure they would rather come for a false alarm, (ONCE!)
than to come and find you unconscious!

You need to resolve this problem immediately!

What does "check OP" mean


This means that the weather radio has not received the weekly test signals for over a week. Turn the radio off and then back on. Next set the radio to announce the current weather (on my unit the button is marked Weather) and listen to the broadcast. If you do not hear the broadcast, move the radio until you do.

If you can't get a good signal, check the NOAA site for your coverage area to see if the local emergency alert broadcast towers are under repair. If needed try one of the other towers that cover your county. Sometimes you may get one location better than the others if you are near the edge of the county or are surrounded by hills. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/ has the maps by state and those link to the frequency of each tower that can be heard in a given county.

If the radio still fails to hear the test alerts, you may need an external antenna or a new radio. (Caution: the external antenna may hear a more distant tower and not give your local alert. We got the wrong state on one radio.)

Cindy Wells
(who has one weather radio on each side of the house set to two different towers. I live 2 miles from the state line. We had severe weather a few days ago and only the in-state tower broadcast the severe weather watch. The local television stations displayed different watches and warnings depending on which NOAA coverage area they checked.)

Error 1203 on a Dell Printer - what is this?


2080 1203 2055...Critical / Failure / Error...2080 1203 2346The Storage Management Service performs alert monitoring and logging. By default, the Storage Management Service starts when the managed system starts up. If you stop the Storage Management Service, then alert monitoring and logging stops. Alert monitoring does the following:
  • Updates the status of the storage object that generated the alert.

  • Propagates the storage object's status to all the related higher objects in the storage hierarchy. For example, the status of a lower-level object will be propagated up to the status displayed on the Health tab for the top-level Storage object.

  • Logs an alert in the Alert log and the operating system (OS) application log.

  • Sends an SNMP trap if the operating system's SNMP service is installed and enabled.

It takes 4 AA batteries, that is 6 volts. You will find that a 6V 500Ma power supply will be the right thing, just make sure that the polarity of the plug is right!

I have a First Alert model 610 timer. It is an older model and I need the instructions for it.


I called First Alert @ (800) 323-9005 and they faxed me the instructions for Model LS510 which is the same and got it working. They will mail it too but not email. Choose Fixed or Random mode. Choose how many hours it will stay on after dusk. Turn your lamp off and unplug the lamp. Plug lamp into timer. Put function in Fixed or Random position. Put hours on switch to number of hours you want it remain on after dusk. Plug timer into the wall outlet. Turn the lamp's switch on and Timer's LED light should be on and the lamp should be off. Turn the lamp's switch off then on again TWICE. The second time you turn the lamp's switch on the bulb in the lamp will flach on then off quickly. This indicates that the Timer is controlling the lamp's operation. Leave the lamp switch in the ON position. The timer is now set for automatic. I hope this helps.

Every time I get a text message it alerts me by saying "Message from _____" and then the name of the person. I want to silent this feature but I cannot find the feature to do that.


What kind of vacuum is this anyway???

I will try to help you with your problem even though you have not identified your make and model phone and you are in the wrong category. I will try to help you by telling you what I would do with my phone to change this setting. The procedure for changing your phone is probably different ... but perhaps you will get some insight from my remarks.

This is for calls and messages - My phone is a **** style LG. On the left side there are two buttons. I press the bottom one to get a menu list. Next I press the Right Soft Key called 'settings'. Next I select item number 6 called "call alert" I press OK. My three options are ( ) ring only or ( ) Caller ID and Ring ( ) Name Repeat.

I use (>) caller ID + ring and I hear the number or the name of the caller if in my phone book then the ring I have selected for that caller or texter.

Specific for messages ... I select Settings & Tools then I select Sound Settings then I select Alert Sounds then I select Test Messages and then I make my setting.

I hope this assists you with your settings even though I feel you probably dont have the same phone as I.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
