SOURCE: Motorola D700 (Ex Dolphin Tetra) Radio

Buying the MTH programming cable from china, then download the D700 software from warez sites. I reprogrammed 4 of my D700's to work back to back. It took about 2 minutes in the software and worked a treat.

They have a 3 mile radius and brilling speech quality.

I paid £11 for the programming cable and downloaded the software for free.

My email is andrew@cergo.plc.uk if you want help.

SOURCE: Cannot find how to load photos onto Dolphin 1.5" Digital Photo Frame Key Ring

I had the same problems but solved it by uninstalling the useless POS software, rebooting the computer and reinstalling everything.

I have found that you have to do this everytime that you want to add or delete photos. Probably the worst piece of software I have seen in 15 years of working on computers.

If it won't detect as a seperate drive in "My Computer" then you will have to uninstall it and start again.

There is also no need to format the device. Just ignore it and start downloading photos and it worked straight away. (Using XP Home) As to battery life, I suspect I will never know because it is liable to have a visit from my sledge hammer before it runs out of power.

SOURCE: Dolphin will not climb up walls.

What is you pool surface? It may need climbing rings to assist it on 'slick' surfaces like fiberglass.

Try moving the location of where you set the power supply from use to use to allow it's cleaning patterns to shift around for better coverage.

SOURCE: changed battery and now pendulum wont swing

Give the pendulum a shove and do it every time you pass the clock. I got mine going from swinging for just 20 seconds to working permanently, at least until the next battery change.

Your Dolphin pool cleaner wont start up...


A common problem, especially with 'newer' Maytronics Dolphin brand pool cleaners is that you put the unit in the pool, or even try to turn it on after a cleaning cycle while it is still in the pool, and to that point it has worked fine. You turn the power supply on and nothing happens. You turn it off and back on and still nothing. You leave it, even over night, same thing. What do you do?

While I cannot tell you why it does this (we have a theory but can not confirm it) what usually works is to follow these steps...

1) Unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the outlet and the Dolphin from the power supply.

2) Let the whole thing sit a couple of minutes (we want to allow any capacitors to discharge).

3) Be sure the Dolphin is out of the water and sitting upside-down on a level surface (Tracks pointing skyward).

4) Reconnect the Dolphin to the power supply and the power supply to the outlet.

5) With the Dolphin still out of the water, perform a self-test. Simply turn on the Dolphin. Within about 15 seconds it should begin to move. The tracks will spin in both directions with and without the impeller motor running at the same time. It is not unusual for the tracks to rotate at different speeds during this test. The test will last for 30 - 45 seconds or so. If it goes on indefinitely, turn it off and contact us for further direction.

6) Assuming the unit has now worked to this point, you should be able to put it back in the water and it will return to normal operation from this point on.

If it still won't run; it runs a few moments and quits the self-test; or runs continuously, contact us thru the Dolphin service form along the bottom of our home page at www.arrowpools.net.

If dolphin turns on its side against wall , will not flip back upright. Continues on its side and won't move


I am unsure of your question. Are you referring to an actual Dolphin or some sort of Toy?

Pendulum wont swing


Clock may either need to be decked out from the wall at the top, or pushed all the way up against the wall. These clocks have inexpensive quartz movements that aren't of the highest quality. If the clock is more than a few years old, it may be that the electromagnet that impulses the pendulum back and forth has just expired. You might try Clockit.com, or maybe Timesavers.com to find a replacement movement. Hope this helps, Good Luck

Pendulum does not move


Good details! Go to Timesavers.com
You can find a replacement pendulum unit there. Your pendulum mechanism probably has a bad coil. The coil is extremely difficult to repair.

Seiko wall clock pendulum not working


When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.
