Question about Praktica SlimPix Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Praktika DC Slim5 but can't get it to switch on. When I press the left-hand button on the top the red "busy" light comes on for a couple of seconds then goes off and nothing further happens! Any ideas, please?

    Actually it didn't work but I was grateful for the advice! Could not get the motor un-jambed and will have to scrap the camera.

I read about this proelbm ago few time, the problem is a jammed motor. This motor is whats reponsible for the zoom on your camera lens. Dropping the camera can be enough to jar it loose but it can also damage your camera.

Also, keep in mind that some model wont work with SD upper to 1GB.

Sky remote code for model UE40J5100AK


Programming the remote control
To control your TV firstly switch on the TV set, point the Sky remote at the TV, press the "TV" button on the Sky remote, then press and hold the "Select" and "Red" buttons together until the red light at the top of the Sky remote control flashes twice. Press "TV" again then enter the code for the TV listings below (Use the 4 digit codes from the left hand column), the red light will flash twice if a valid code has been entered. Press TV then the standby button on the Sky remote control, this should switch the TV set off, if so then press the "Select" button to store the settings. You should now be able to switch the TV back on and use the volume control button from your Sky remote.
If the TV did not switch off then it may require a different code, you can either start again using one of the alternative Direct codes below or continue with this process by continuously pressing "TV" then "Standby" then "TV" then "Standby" etc until the TV set switches off. This will provide a manual scan for variations within that product code.
If you are still unable to control your TV from the remote control see: Programming The Sky Remote or go to Sky's official website where you can see if a particular remote control version number will operate your make of TV, this can be found at:Skyplease remember to use your back button and come back to us.

Switch your gamepad to 'analog' mode by pressing small button 'MODE' at the center. Light under that button should turn red (indicating analogue mode) from green (indicating digital mode).

I want to change current keypad code linear LD050 model


To change the keypad code.

Step 1:
Erase the current code - On the upper right hand corner of the left hand side of the unit, you will see a "learn" button.

Press and hold the "learn" button for 12 seconds.

When you release the learn button, the red light above the button will blink 3 times and then come on bright for 15 seconds.

When the light goes out, the memory in the operator is erased.

Step 2:
Learn a new keypad code.

Press and release the "learn" button.

The red light will come on. You now have 15 seconds to complete the next task.

Go to your keypad and enter your desired code (1 to 6 digits long)

press start/stop on the keypad.

The red light will blink when the code is successfully stored.

Don't forget to re-enter all of your hand held remotes into the memory:

Press and release the learn button. When the red light comes on, press the button on the remote you wish to update.

Repeat for other remotes. By the way, If you hold the learn button down for 10 seconds, you'll have to start over and the memory will be erased.

How do you set the correct date


Hi! Welcome to FixYa,

Hold down the top left hand button which is for the light and then a menu should come up saying chime and then if you want it on or off press the bottom left and so on. Keep pressing the top left hand button until it comes to time and then it will ask how many hours off the time. Choose the correct time and then press the bottom left again for the date and select the correct month and day and year and then you are all set up.

Hope this helps.
