I am sorry but while many phones can be opened with some common tools and a little dexterity, that phone model is manufactured and designed in a way where it cannot be opened by a consumer or even a gifted techie without destroying its integrity. It has no screws, and the method to open it without destroying it is completely based upon muscle memory and a specific tool. In addition, even if you were to open it without destroying the plastic you would clean the keys only to have them still barely work. I train technicians to open them, and I have to sit them down with bad ones that they can destroy to practice opening them without tearing them up. Once the plastic tabs that hold them together are busted, the phone won't stay together properly and then your costs just went up to replace the plastic once you finally get it to the repair facility. So the best advice I can give in this case is to send it in for repair so the keypad can be fixed and upgraded. If you go to the Siemens website, and reach the Gigaset area, look for the FAQs and they can direct you to a repair source. Their global site is pretty large, so if you get lost, you can google Siemens Cordless Repair to find a solution.

Error code timer light blinks twice


Depending on the model, this usually means "Serial signal (reverse) error at start up" which means that the indoor unit is not receiving a response from the outdoor unit when it tries to "talk" to it. It can be several causes but In my experience, it is usually the outdoor controller board. Again, depending on the model, there can be several boards in the outdoor unit any or all of which could be causing the fault as well as a faulty fan motor or compressor. The bottom line is that you are going to need a tech to take a look at it to diagnose properly.

Button doest work for my suunto core watch. Help


is the button stuck or non responsive?if it is stuck try and clean around it, if that fails disassemble the unit and clean the housing and buttons reassemble the unit and test it,if it is non responsive then it may be damaged, disassemble the unit and manually press the connector that reacts to that button- if there is no reaction then the unit has malfunctioned, it is normally difficut to repair such damage- take in for repair to a jewelry shop

The button on my purple game boy color aren't working. The only button that does work is start and the others only work if you push down really hard on them. Please help me.


maybe the button was defected already, try to open the unit and check the wires. if the wire is already broken then have it change or go to the shoppe who is responsible in fixing that, if not then try to clean up the entire inner surface of the unit then take a look again if it will work.

WILL NOT TURN ON


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

1. Do you have power to the unit, lites on, buzzers work etc.
2. if you have power, you may have a defect start button or timer
3. if start button/timer is ok you can have a defective motor.

I suggest you call service company, that have the proper equipment to work on your unit

F60 ERROR CODE ON PANASONIC DMR-ES40V


Unplug the unit for 24-hours. I know, it should not take that long, but in this case I tried shorter periods WITHOUT success!

Just before plugging in unit depress and hold POWER button. You are supposed to hold it for 30-seconds after plugging in, but in my case I did it for 60-seconds. This results in a MASTER RESET that clears all errors, resets interlocks, etc. I could not get past a DVD failure problem, but when I discovered this process everything worked fine!!

Good luck! Hope it works for you too.

I know it sounds expensive but at least you know Canon will fix it properly with a limited warranty on the repair. Remember, they have to take the camera completely apart to reach that part. If you're interested in seeing how complicated it is, google the words...disassemble a digital camera.

That unit does not have a touch screen so holding the screen while powering up wont do anything. I'm not sure which key it is on that model, but to do a reset you hold down one of the keys while powering up. Try holding down the enter key while you power up. If that doesn't work, try again with the other keys until you find it. If it doesn't reset, you may have a dead keypad.

Screen insensitive and vibrate mode not working


Hi, I had this problem, and fixed it. That's the good news. The bad news is that it involved taking the unit to pieces, and thoroughly cleaning the edges of the screen, and the inside of the case where it sits. Something had got trapped, which was throwing the tap out at the right hand side.
