Dont know what size battery to use for a nady ht-3 mic transmitte


Hi, nady ht-3 mic transmitter uses a 9 volt battery ..coolken_15.jpg

To insert the battery, You will need to unscrew the below button part of the hand held mic (anti-clockwise), and after unscrewing, you will see the space to fix in the 9 volt battery..

When you buy the battery,before fixing the battery in, check the polarity before placing the battery in (positive + and negetive -)...After inserting,screw back the cover in and locate where the power switch is..It always has an indicator to know if the power is on...

Note..make sure the Transmitter is on for it to be able to work properly with the hand held microphone....


Good luck..

Reiker ceiling fan - does not turn on - theres is power to unit - maybe remmote is bad? how do i change code


Before trying to change the code, have you tried changing the batteries? Both in the hand held remote and the one in fan housing? If so, and that didn't help, make sure the batteries are turned in the right direction and fitting tightly.

Will the fan operate without using the remote control?

Out of range


Unplug it - take battery out of hand held unit - for several minuets..

Put it back and power up..

If issue still there - there is a channel selector on the hand held unit.. Try changing channels..

If the battery is week in hand held this could happen.. These batteries last around a year +/-.. You can get a replacement online,, WalMart,, Radio Shack..

There could also be interference in the area..

Have a great day !

Downloading recordings


HI a quick search reveals that Quick Link is required to transfer Voice memos to PC.

However in the Owners Manual here it dosn't mention it. (Click the link to see the PDF)

The Quick Search link there does have a menu for wav playing Software. But as a USB storage device I would suspect that when you plug it into a computer, and it does it's automatic drive install, the device should pop up as an additonal Drive in the "My Computer" window. Try opening the My Computer, and plugging the device in with the Mini USB cord you have, and see if a new drive icon pops into the window, If so, that's what you're looking for.

The Specs say the device contains four folders that can contain up to 100 files each. They're most likely WAV files.

Good luck with that.

Battery not charging


1. plug the power cord into the laptop
2. remove the battery
3. try to power on the laptop

if the laptop led lights up and/or powers up without the battery it can be determined that you need a new battery

if the laptop led doesn't light up and/or power on. then you may have a charging port or power cord problem

Frozen?


Its easily fixed. Try this.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.




Best of Luck.

I can't delete files off of my mp3 player!


Hi, This is taken from another post, but might work for you as well: 1. Take the battery out of the Sansa player. 2. While the battery is out, plug the Sansa m200 player into another USB port, preferably a rear one or a self powered USB hub, on the computer. 4. If the screen reads ?USB Connected? when the Sansa player is plugged in with no battery, unplug the Sansa player. 5. Hold the "Menu Button" (Power Button) for 45 seconds. 6. Connect it to the computer again (still without the battery). 7. If the screen once again reads ?USB Connected,? disconnect the player and insert a new battery which has never been previously used. 8. Try powering on the player. If the above procedures (power cycle) didn't work, please repeat the process again but now hold the power button for 2 minutes and wait for at least 5 minutes before plugging in new set of batteries.
