Black & Decker BDL500S - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
I have a BDS 300 sensor and have lost instructions
I just bought one too and instructions need deciphering. Select wood or metal with selector switch. Put unit flat against wall. Press and hold on/off button on left. (It looks like it must be kept pressed in at all times to be 'on' and when released it's 'off). The unit with calibrate and give a beep back and lower red LED will stay on. Move unit slowly left/right and more red LEDs light up until green is on. This is 1st edge. Mark it with pencil. Move unit along until Green is off and down to single LED. Then move it back in opp. direction until Green is on again. This is 2nd edge. Attached is a scan of page from Instruction Manual. Quality is lowish as attachment limit here is 150kb.
Outdoor sensor isn;t working
Try to bring the sensor 1-3 meters from the base station. Then remove all the batteries for approximately 20mins so it will drain. Put the battery back as per manual instructions. Leave the sensor and the base station for 2 to 3 hours. If it still does not work, repeat the process.
How do you replace the battery on my gvd-504a?
Try to remove the black cap. You can see there are two button-cell batteries located at the top of the unit. Try to twist it off and pull it straight up. Be noted regarding the polarity.
I have a GE 5805WS6
If your unit was initially working fine and you find that it recently intermittently works with the outdoor unit then unfortunately there is not much you can do. The cause is other type units transmitting on the same frequency, eg: internet. You can try changing frequency, but I found the frequency spectrum here full with wifi / internet modems / cameras, so not much can be done. It does still lock on but there are long gaps of nothing. Perhaps a mod to boost either tx or rx ?
