When Timer Prog. on the remote is pressed Timer Programme List screen does not appear. Press Timer Prog. button again and unit goes to Standby. Same happens when I press the Setup button, unit goes to Standby.

All other functions such as OTR and Playback are OK.

The only way to reset this unit is only if you control program is working fine and you can navigate on it, because there's a Reset all option there that will bring the unit back to its default settings, but since that control is not wokring, better have this check to a repair center near you and they should be able to diagnose and replace if some parts should be replace..

Good luck.........

You stated having the unit unplugged in your problem description so you did do a reset already and that seems to have caused your problem. Unplugging the machine will probably not resolve your issue then. What does seem to be happening is corruption in the unit's firmware that is crashing it causing it to go into stand-by. Unfortunately I doubt there is any software on the Internet that will allow you to re-flash the machine's firmware. Unless you still have warranty available you will either have to live with it, replace the unit's main board (doubt a replacement can easily be found), or replace it with something new.

You can reset it by unplugging the device into the electrical outlet and leave it unplug for just 1 day, this will remove some save power on the unit and will reset it into default settings...

TV power is switching on and off. I have unplugged the set and plugged it back in and the problem persists.


Sir the problem of your unit is the power supply, if you remove the back cover of your unit try to observe the power supply if there is a bulge up or leaky capacitor. This bad capacitor is producing unfiltered and low dc supply to your unit that cause your unit to malfunction, if you see this bad capacitor replace it but observe the polarity. Note be sure to unplug the unit when removing the back cover. Good day sir and best regards.

I don't have repair for defect timer, except return to Home Depot and exchange for another.
Try unplugging timer to see if will reset. There is no specific reset button on timer.
Test outlet with circuit analyzer to confirm there are no electrical problems.

The label shows advisories: Don't use extension cord, unplug unit when working on bulbs, and plug unit into GFCI protected outlet to protect from surge and short.

Other advisories not shown: Unplug power pack if breaker trips or if power goes out. Wait until power is on before plugging back in. First bulb should be 10 feet from unit. Do not wrap extra cord around power pack. Match bulb wattage and power pack wattage: 200 watt power pack should have 200 watts and not more or less. Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out.
These advisories should not affect initial operation of timer, but are things that shorten life of power packs,

POWERS OFF BY IT'S SELF


Hello FixYa customer,

There can be different issues in the mechanism or electrical that will cause the unit to shut down. However, since the power is going off completely after the initial plug in I suspect the power supply.

The SMPS, Switch Mode Power Supply has filter components that age due to heat, the voltage output on the filters reduces until the Micro Processor malfunctions and the unit won't stay on. The power supply filters can be changed by an experienced technician for $10-$15.00 in parts plus labor.

Thank you

The refrigerator quits cooling. If I unplug it and let it sit for a while then plug it back in, it start cooling again. I think the defrost timer may be malfunctioning.


yes, this is a defrost timer failure, mine went out recently, the best way to check is when it stops cooling to look in the freezer were the condenser is if it is frosted then the defrost timer is bad.
PartsDirect.com (sears supplier) might have it.

Power goes off!


I have the same model as you.

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones and adjust its volume as well).
I recommend that the source of your audio have its built-in speakers off, while still providing audio out to your transmitting unit, via an external audio output. Check your source manual or look for audio jacks on the front or back. There may be a setting to turn this on and for the main built-in speakers to be turned off as well.

If this does not work, unplug the transmitting unit, and then plug it back in again, after waiting for about 10 seconds - all while audio is being provided to the unit. It should come on.


Remember that if the audio to the transmitting unit is quiet OR off for about one minute, the transmitting unit will turn off and you will hear FM noise, loudly, on your headphones. This is due to the "lack of audio" timer built-in to the transmitting unit.

The all-in-one product does not turn on If the all-in-one product does not turn on at all, try the following actions in order to determine the cause:
  1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 20 seconds, then, plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.
  5. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.
  6. Press the power button to turn the printer on.
  7. For models that have an external power supply module, verify that the power supply module is plugged in correctly. Some power supply modules have a green LED built into the connector end or on the power supply module. This LED will be lit if power is present. If the LED is not lit, replace the power supply module.
  8. Plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet. If the all-in-one product has an ADF with an external cable plugged into the back of the product, use the following procedure:
    1. Turn off the unit.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
    3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
    4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
    5. Plug in the power cable to the wall outlet, and turn on the power.
      1. If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
      2. If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and reconnect the ADF.
      3. If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
  9. Disconnect the computer parallel cable from the back of the all-in-one product and try to turn on the product again. The computer might be grounding out through the parallel port. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet.
