Question about Sony ICF-CDK50 Clock Radio

1 Answer

The lithium battery has been changed, but the blinking low-battery symbol is still there. I looked up the Instruction Manual, which said to press either the Audio-In, CD, or Radio buttons to turn it off. I have done that, and it is still flashing.

The battery is not making proper connections and this is a global problem with many of this model Sony stereo. Two things you can do, really, 3. One is take it to a repair depot that fixes Sony. #2 is you can take out the battery and it's holder, and remove about 1/4" of the battery housing that surrounds the battery, at the end that slides furthest into the stereo (allowing an open runway for battery connection). If the connection prongs are not bent out of shape, it should allow much better contact. #3, and this will void your warranty, is to fix the connection prongs which I feel are of a 'whimpy' material (not to mention they made the battery holder incorrectly). I opened up my stereo, undid the 2 screws that held down the small board with the battery connecting prongs, and CAREFULLY straightened them out full length and made sure they were both bent towards the battery so the battery would slide easily and make good connection. Test this with a battery (watch polarity) while the radio is apart. The flashing battery symbol should go out (I did not even need to push any buttons, but you can do this as well). Once you have the prongs just right, make sure you make that change to the battery holder (to allow great contact on the battery in the holder) and then (while case still open) further test you have connection by inserting the battery in the holder, putting the holder in the stereo and seeing that connection is made. Then put it all back together once you are sure you have connection. It is a pity Sony did not make this rather valuable contribution to the stereo much better, a backup battery compartment is not rocket science.

I have a Health O Meter HDM560. I need to reset the #1 and #2 users and start over, can you help me there is nothing in the manual about it I can find.


Current Instruction Manual for the HDM560 can be found here:

http://www.healthometer.com/Manuals/MANUALS/HDM560-05_43_41816518.PDF


For resetting it would be similar to the initial setting process. FOLLOW these steps:

Lift display cover. Push "SET" button at bottom of pad. User "1" and "2" will appear.
User "1" will start blinking. Press the "USER" button to choose user "1" or "2". Once selected, press "SET" button to lock in information.
Both "HEIGHT" and "AGE" will appear on the screen. The "HEIGHT" will start blinking. Press the "UP" or "DOWN" arrows to find the correct height.

After entering height, press the "AGE" button. Use the "UP" and "DOWN" arrows to enter correct age and press "SET".

Both "MALE" and "FEMALE" images will be displayed. Press the "GENDER" button until the correct MALE/FEMALE image blinks and then press "SET". This will lock in the information.
Your correct information including User, Height, Age, and Gender will be displayed. Now you are ready to calculate weight.

Tap your person "USER" number (1 or 2) in center of scale with your toe. Your personal profile will appear. Wait until "000" appears. Stand on scale so bare feet are positioned over silver pad surface. "000" will blink your weight for approximately 3 seconds. "BF" will flash and body fat percentage will appear. The scale will turn off automatically in a few seconds.

How do I change the batteries on my WW60X? I can't find my manual but was able to open the battery cover to get the number for the batteries. Now I can't get the batteries out of the scales. ...


Your Instruction Manual is here:

http://www.conaircanada.ca/pdf/en/ibs/en_WW60XC.pdf

Battery Replacement Instructions

1. Turn over the scale and open the battery door. (Push ribbed switch and pull up)
2. Replace old batteries with two new 3V Lithium batteries (CR2032).
3. Close battery door.
4. Properly dispose of old batteries.

There is nothing holding the batteries in place once the battery door is opened. If the batteries are difficult to remove, use a small screwdriver to gently pry up on the battery or simply after opening battery door invert the scale and shake.

Have no instruction manual for dc18ra


I don't believe one exists, I looked for quit a while, and also looked over the manuals for the models that use this charger. Luckly, I found a picture someone made that should at least explain what Makita wanted to get across with their symbols.

It's not what you asked for, but I hope that it helps. Good luck

I have a zr100 camcorder and I have a red flashing icon underneath the battery icon. It looks like a boat with a diagonal line through it with an arrow to the right of the line.


On page 24 of the manuel it shows the symbol that you mentioned below the battery symbol. It's labeled item 4. Which states "flashes in red when the lithium button battery is not installed, or when it needs replacing". I guess you need to check the lithium battery with a voltmeter to see if it's any good.

Blinking film on screen.


Sounds like the batteries went dead, and the internal lithium memory battery was already dead, causing it to forget the settings. install fresh batteries, and reset the ISO of youtr film by holding down the ISO button, and pressing the up/down buttons behind the shutter release. That should return it to normal, but you will have the same problem again whenever you are changing the batteries until you replace the lithium cell. To change the lithium cell, remove tha battery pack, and open the metal plate in the camera's battery compartment. The cell is a lithium CR 2016.

If that does not fix it, you may have a broken camera.

Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol


from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.

Weird lines, characters, symbols etc.


It sounds like you need to put in a new set of back-up batteries. They can be found behind where the AA batteries are.
