I'm guess they don't stock for they stop working in a few months.

I have three and after three months, they go on and off when they want to.

If it detects movement, they may or may not work.

Loved them until they went crazy.

There are many posts on the net about the problems with these. I'm probably going to ask
COSTCO for a refund. I suspect they've given plenty already.

    They go off and on when the batteries are going low. New batteries make it stable.

Amazon still has some two packs of this light. We had good service from ours, about 2 years. We did discover the light would go on and off continuously when the batteries were low (about 6 months on fresh batteries). Unfortunately it fell recently while doing some work under the front porch and that killed it. Miss this very convenient and easy to install light that made it easy to unlock the front door.

Took it apart but no servicable parts so just ordered a two pack.

EEE PC 1005P won't charge, can it be a motherboard problem?


honestly you've done everything correctly that i could think of. one last thing you could try to root out a problem with the os. is boot the computer from hirens boot disk and load the portable Windows. see if the battery is detected in hirens. then youll know if its a Windows problem or not.

personally i feel the board is the issue but it doesn't hurt to check the complete os.

> bought this computer a couple of months ago

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

Possible that the installed drivers is not the one for the model and so does not activate the scanning mode.So it will be best to recheck on the site with the requriement for driver for the correct model and install. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.

Change Your Wireless Channel

If you're using a Linksys router, you'll need to browse to the address of your router, which is probably set to http://192.168.1.1 but could be assigned to another address. You can run a quick ipconfig command at the command prompt to check:

image12.png

In my case the address is different (because I changed it, of course), but what you're looking for is the Default Gateway for your Wireless connection, and then go to http:// in your browser. Enter in the password that you hopefully remember, and head to the Wireless -> Basic Wireless Settings tab.

My router has two separate bands, but your router might just have a single band here. In my case, what I've done is set the 2.4 GHz band to only be used for Wireless-G, and the 5GHz one to Wireless-N only. Since I'm not having any problems with the Wireless-N settings, I've left those on auto.

image13.png

Where I am having a problem, however, is my Wireless-G devices-so what I've done is chosen channel 9, since it's the only channel that's not being used by any of my neighbors, who are using mostly channels 1 and 6, though a few are using 11 as well.

Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the most common channels to choose, and most routers will use one of them as the default channel-but the general idea is to be as far away from everybody else as you can.

image14.png

Note: I've also configured my router for 20 MHz only on the 2.4 GHz Wireless-G band, just because that was the only way it would let me choose the standard channel manually.

If you are using a different router, the IP address will generally be the same, but you'll have to figure out how to change the Wireless channel without any screenshot tours. It's usually fairly easy, though, once you know what you're looking for.

Why does my light keep flashing on and off when nobody is around?

There can be a number of reasons why this problem occurs.

A) It's possible that the battery life is too low after some time of usage. Please replace all 3 batteries with new ones.
B) Your product needs resetting (very similar compared to rebooting up your computer). Please follow directions below:

  1. Rotate the motion sensor white ball facing at a 45 degree angle downward.
  1. Use at least 3 pieces of black tape and place it over the photo sensor completely to simulate darkness. The photo sensor looks like a small circle located on the top right hand side of the 8 or 10 LED's.
  1. Turn the Light ON and then OFF. Please repeat this process 3 times.
  1. Then switch it to AUTO.
  1. Place the Light against the wall on the floor. Make sure the Light is facing upward leaning against the wall. The LED's should be facing towards you.
  1. Step back at least 25 feet away from the Light. Do not move otherwise the Light will turn on. Wait until the Light starts to dim down and turn off (approximately 20 seconds).
  1. When the Light turns off, wait for approximately 4 seconds and then approach the Light waving your legs and arms. The motion sensor should be able to detect your movement and then the Light should turn on.

You have just completed the resetting process. Now you may return the Light back to where it was installed. Be sure to leave the switch at AUTO and remove the black tape.

I just bought two new belts at Grainger, their stock number is Dayton 1DHH5. This is for 3/8" belts. I don't know what the originals were, they were so far gone! I think a 1/2" belt would work too. Industry P/N for the belts would be 100XL037 for the 3/8", and 100XL050 for 1/2". It's a 10" belt, with 5 teeth/inch.
