    I just got an older used R-Com 20 Pro (not USB). I am doing a test run with some chicken eggs. I tried to turn the turner off for the first 24 hours and it keeps coming back on. I am in manual mode and I press the "up" and "down" buttons at the same time. It says "off" and the display has the egg with a crack in it. However, when I check on it later, it is turning and the display has the turning egg on it. Does anybody know what am I doing wrong??? [​IMG]

    Does it say somewhere on that link? Cause I don't see anything that answers my question. I have the manual, just wondering if anybody who owns one has had the same problem.

    Oh I'm sorry. I don't have one never known anyone that did. I looked for an hour trying to find something to help. The instructions were all I found. I am electronicly challenged I wouldn't know were to begin . But if the fact that I couldn't answer your question even though I wanted to help is offensive to you then I aplogives

    I didn't know if I was missing something in that link. I guess I should have said that I have read and re-read the manual, searched their website, emailed the company (in Korea) and I have googled it without any luck. [​IMG]

    Why don't you want them turned? And I really am electronicly challenged, my smart phone is smarter then me.

    According to the waterfowl incubation manual I've been using, I am not supposed to turn for the first 24 hours and of course, the last 3 days of incubation. I am planning on switching the eggs to a different incubator for lockdown and hatching anyway, but I'm trying to figure out how to bypass the turning for the first 24 hours. [​IMG]

    Hi, did you ever figure this out? I would go into Manual mode, Other Birds, then set the day down to Day 2 for the incubation period, because the incubator defaults to stop turning on Day 3. Then when you want it to start turning the eggs after a day, reset the incubator to the correct incubation period less the one day the eggs have already been in there without being turned. Little bit of a hassle but that's the only way I can figure out you would do it :)

    Thanks! Thats what I've been doing. I've found that the "other birds" setting is easier to manipulate for the goose eggs.
