Hi prodriver46,

Are you receiving any error messages on the screen? Usually with signal loss it would be error 015 or 002. I would suggest during a hard reset with the receiver by unplugging it from the wall for 10-15 seconds and allowing it to reboot once plugged back in. If the problem persists run a check switch test by hitting menu on the remote followed by 6-1-1. If you receive any error messages after the check switch we will have to send a technician out to correct the issue. Feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] with any further questions or concerns!

Installing aftermarket turn signals on a Suzuki 1978 gs1000. Windjammer fairing removed so I have no wiring reference for turn signals. Need a wiring diagram, or just a simple explanation. PLEASE help....

Get a test light. Hook clip on - side of battery. Turn on turn signals and ck wires. The light will flash, that is the + wire. If turn signal has only 1 wire hook that to the + wire. The - connection will ground through frame and complete the connection.

It's a matter of good line of sight and distance between the transmitter and the receiver. Yours may be on the hairy edge of too far. Remove the receiver and test it at various proximities to the spinning wheel when it's transmitting.

Does the signal meter show any signal? Try plugging something into and out of the EXT Speaker jack to see if maybe that is preventing the internal speaker from working, or plug in an external speaker or headphone to test it. If the meter shows nothing, I'm concerned about your electronics, especially with the 'squelch' control 'wide-open'. 73's

Futura ce-100 embroidering in the wrong place

I decided to simply start from the beginning and start all over. I turned off the machine, detached the embroidery unit and blew into the sensor (where the machine and embroidery unit connect). I'm not sure what the problem was, but it was fine after that! Just goes to show that no matter how frustrating things can be, it pays to just take a moment and start over!!

Display show ANT Test Mode...will not respond to anything

I did not solve the sort of just solved itself which is still extremely aggravating. Don't get me wrong, I am happy it is now working for the most part but to spend this kind of money and have it not work all the time is frustrating. This is not the first time I have encountered issues but I am generally able to reset it on my own. This last issue was just so bizzare that I cannot even begin to tell you all of the things the just popped up on the screen without me even touching it. At one point, it showed ANT Test Off, then it showed a huge X across the screen. Another time it simply read -1.00. After it was done displaying these random bits of data, I tried to reset one last time and had success. However, the data is not uploading to Garmin/connect. So my frustration continues.

Used phone many problems

Contact your network provider. They can test the signal of the phone and also reset it to the network settings. Have you turned your phone off recently? Leaving a phone on continually will sometimes give you these errors. The network updates the software in your phone and if you do not turn it off once in a while the updates will not be applied.
