Testdriver03:

What you are describing sounds as if you have an electrical issue,
If you are able to check the voltage to the unit you shold have 240 voltsAC to the unit L-1 to L-2 and 120 volts Ac to L-1 to neutral and 120 volts Ac L-2 to Neutral while the unit is running I`m supecting the 120 voltage is dropping out on the L-1 leg which is normally the line on the left side.
((((But only do this test If you know how to properly use a Volt-Ohm meter

I also suggest that you contact your dryer manufacture if this is not an electrical supply issue.

Take the battery out. Then put it back in. I couldn't find anything that would work but doing a hard reset. Once I did that the phone worked again. I lost everything but my phone works again.

  1. Press power button until the phone turns on and vibrates.
  2. Press and hold the up volume button until you see the word hello.
  3. Release the up volume button.
    Note
    : You will see the word hello on the screen for about 5-7 seconds.
  4. The screen will display the android guy next to an exclamation point inside a triangle.
  5. Press the home button to access Android system recovery screen.
  6. Scroll to and select wipe data/factory reset.
    Note
    : The volume button scrolls and the enter/return key selects
  7. Scroll to and select Yes.

I have a Breadman TR875 breadmaker. It will not do anything when I hit start. I've tried to unplug it, but didn't help.


I believe for this perticular model to power-up, you must press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.

Here's more on the subject...

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:


1. Unplug the breadmaker.

2. Confirm the power source your accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

3. Plug the breadmaker in.

4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:


    1. Some models have a built-in off/on switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models make an audible tone when plugged in.
    3. Some models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Some models require you press the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press the Start button down until the unit powers up.
    6. Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.


3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or discard it.


4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reset the breadmaker by pressing down on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Note: It bears mentioning again at this point that some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.

Dead? wont turn on


I had this happen to me on one occasion. Pressing the power button any number of times would not turn on the unit. Also, plugging in the car charger did not turn on the unit or charge it either.
I found that holding the power button for 10-15 seconds forced the unit to reboot, and it started just fine after that.
Since then, I've had an even more irritating issue, where holding the power button for 10-15 seconds would restart the unit, but it would freeze at the "loading maps." part. I ended up plugging the unit into my PC, which started it for purposes of data transfer. I then disconnected it from the PC and it restarted properly.
Try those out and see if you have any better luck.

Trouble turning on, displays no mech mode then goes to cartridges


From HP Tech support:
1. Verify that configuration button (Setup button) was not pressed (it was not pressed)

2. Disconect the power cord from the unit

3. Press and hold configuration button

4. Connect the power cord to the unit

(this way the unit gets out from the "No Mech Mode")

5. Stop pressing configuration button (I waited about 15 seconds)


Doing this, the unit seemed to be reset by an intialization process as the cartridges adjusted. It worked fine for me. Not sure of the purpose for error.
