How can I stop the Samsung gusto 3 from reading numbers of incoming calls.

I believe one of the Accessibility Readout options is enabled. From the home screen, press the Left soft key. Select Menu, then Settings. Go to Accessibility and then Easy-Setup. Check that the following are off: Full Readout, Digit Dial Readout, Alert Readout. (Alternatively, you can look at each of these individually from the Accessibility menu.) There may be other options to check in the Readout options but these seem the most likely.

I hope this helps.

Readout turned totally white After being in a Lot of rain. Cannot see digital readout at all.

Take a hair dryer to read out. Water will evaporate and eventually you will be able to see readout again. You may have to open up bezel to allow water vapor out or it will recondense on inside of bezel. Hope this helps.

Turn off printer.
Close readout cover.
Unplug printer. Wait at least 5 minutes.
Plug back in printer
Open readout cover
Turn printer on
This will reset the printer
If this does not work, try turn off printer
Open and close the readout cover slowly couple of times
Turn printer back on
If still does not work, try a different outlet
the voltage could be low.

Phaser 8550 Problem. Window has been blank for a while, but it still was working until a few days ago. With a blank window, I can't try to follow instructions to try to fix on my own. The other day it just...

You need to contact Xerox on this one. The LCD readout being blank and the machine not responding is indicative of an internal board failure. The red light being on all of the time is an indication of a fault. Without a front panel readout of the fault you will only continue to guess what the problem is.

Definately contact Xerox about your problem or get in contact with a Xerox certified technician in your area.

Re: Denon AVR-1100 receiver Just powered it on after years of not being used, although I know it works just fine. Powers on fine, but the readout on the screen says "AUTO" (small) and "PROTECT" (large) and...

The receiver has gone into a protect mode because something is wrong and it shuts down to prevent further damage. Could be a power supply or output amp issue.

press the button below the readout "rngoff", let go, then rotate the volume control dial. It should raise the volume. The readout will now say "ring"
