Hi
You can obtain a User Guide from here if you haven't got one:
http://www.tp-link.com/resources/document/TD-W8960N_V5_User_Guide_1910010926.pdf

It is in pdf format and the page you need is Page 4 of the manual (p 12 of the pdf). There are descriptions of all the lights on the front and their meanings when off, on, or flashing. There is no mention of a "lock light" such as you describe, and the flashing of some of the lights is to be expected under normal operation. Does the modem work satisfactorily? If it does then I would leave well alone. It would however be good for your peace of mind to go through each of the lights in turn and make sure that they are behaving as the manual suggests.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

My phone is lock


I had the same problem last year, I was messing around with the security part of my phone and I dialed in the wrong code so many times that my SIM card locked up on me and I couldn't call or text anyone, except to only 911. that is what is happening to you.
Since your SIM card is locked since you punched in the wrong PUK code, call your cell phone customer service, explain the situation, and what they did with me is they sent out a new SIM card in the mail to me. They would probably do the same thing to you as well. and when you get your new SIM card you would have to call your cell phone company customer service and have the SIM card activated.
Next time don't mess around with the security part of your phone and don't dial in any wrong codes that you don't know of. I learned my lesson when it happened to me. I went with a prepaid cell phone company and they said that if I did it again that they wouldn't give me another SIM card and I would have to purchase a new phone.
good luck :-)

Laptop won't boot. Caps lock and numeric lock lights are blinking. It was working fine after I installed a new hard disk and restored the whole system using my recovery disks and backup. I installed...


Don't restore the system to a hard disk of different size. You may fix the old disk again and use it while using the new (probably larger) disk as an external disk (by fixing a driver bay).
If you want to use the new disk you will have to install the operating system and software from scratch.

My Sylvania MP3; touch screen is messed up... Well, the power/lock-unlock button is loose and will NOT turn off the MP3.. Nor will it unlock it. So when I try to select an icon with my pen, a lock pops up....


If you're a little bit tech savvy, you can open the player and fix the button yourself. It's pretty simple, but those who don't know what they're doing can mess things up pretty badly.
If you don't feel like doing that,
I'd suggest bringing it back to where you got it and getting an exchange!

Red light on top off phone keeps flashing. i would like to know how to turn it off. tks. for your help


Hello

Have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in? It may free it up. On the other hand, I have a corded phone that blinks when there is a new call with caller id. If I don't scroll down to every call, it continues blinking. If you have caller id, just scroll down a little more and see if the blinking stops.

hold the page button down for 5 seconds, that usually clears the blinking beep/light!!!

also make sure no old messages are in the VM inbox!
