With release of MyTalkMobile 3.1, switch support offers alternative access to MyTalk Mobile. The RJ Cooper switch is one of two switches supported with release 3.1 of MyTalk Mobile. This tutorial will demonstrates resetting your RJ Cooper Switch's profile, should that become necessary.
Occasionally when users turn on their RJ Cooper switch, they will find that the switch, although paired properly to their iDevice, does not respond to the button being depressed. This happens every time the RJ Cooper Switch button (big yellow button) is depressed while powering on the device. To avoid this problem hold the unit by its black base when powering up the switch. But if the switch will not respond, reset it. To reset the switch, we improvised by creating a simple cable that you will connect to your "Y" cable provided with your switch.
In this photo you see our improvised attachment, and old audio cable with both wires cut and exposed, a few inches from the audio jack. You also see the switch, and the black/white Y cable that came with your RJ Cooper switch.
Our improvised 'Mono Audio cable' was taken from an old, used computer speaker. We chose the improvised approach using an old speaker instead of damaging the Y cable provided with the switch, in case the Y cable is needed for other applications.
(RJ Cooper had suggested a reset process that cuts the black cable of supplied Y cable. See the RJ Cooper site to follow that process. We will not illustrate a process that damages, content provided by another vendor. )
This photo shows what type of jack to look for when you try to find a mono audio cable. Find a jack that possesses a similar size/type shown. Cut the insulated wiring and expose the copper brush wire on both cables coming from the jack.
Now that you have the mono audio cable, plug it into the black female jack on the Y cable as shown in this photo.
Now plug your Y male cable into the female jack port next to the RJ Cooper Power button as shown.
Now comes the tricky part....
Turn on the switch by holding the red button on the device. During this period, the Mono Audio cable wires must be crossed and touching (See photo Below).
When you turn the switch on, the instant you see a green LED light, separate the Mono Audio cable wires as shown.
This may take a little practice, but it is generally the easiest when one hand turns the switch on, while the other hand holds the crossed audio cable wires.
If you separated the audio cables at the correct time (as soon as the switch turns on and you see a green LED), the switch LED will show red for a short period. This is letting you know that the Switch profile has been reset. You will now have the proper switch profile and you are able to pair and utilize the RJ Cooper switch with MyTalkTools!
