    I have exactly the same problem. Leaving the printer for many hours makes no difference. Even turning off and leaving a day before turning on again does not help. Occurred about a week out of warrantee.

    I even tried using a hair dryer to warm it up. Site says it won't operate under 50 degrees. There is no way it is below 50 in here and with the added heat, it really doesn't make sense.

I had the exact same problem, but after some fiddling around i found that if u unplug the USB cord from the printer itself, that it will print what ever you were trying to print,, it will still say low temp... but you can at least get a few prints out of it, even if you do have to unplug the cord every once in a while :)

Find the actual temperature at the thermostat from my cell phone?

You don't say what kind of phone you have, but assuming it's an Android or Apple smartphone, you should understand a few things. First, your phone won't read outside temperatures by itself. You can use weather apps that download reports from local weather towers in your area, but these won't tell you how warm your home is.

How can you measure the actual temperature in your environment? You can purchase an sensor attachment that you plug in to your phone, or you can buy a thermometer/thermostat that transmits data to an app on your phone. I'm familiar with the Nest, a mobile-controlled house thermostat that works with central AC systems. It comes with an iPhone/Android app that reports on temperatures and allows a huge degree of customization in your home AC settings, but it's very expensive at over $300. Westinghouse probably makes cheaper wireless models too, but these thermostats aren't worth the money if you have a wall heater or room AC.

Me, I bought a $15 instant-read digital food thermometer from and take temperature readings by pushing it's on button. Cheaper, faster and easy.

C521 reads "no Cd" when cold and cd is inserted

Yes, most electronic devices work at an optimum temperature, and if the temperature rises or falls below this, the circuitry could go out of spec.

If the temperature is too cold, you could try to warm up the back of the player with a hairdyrer for a few minutes. This generally does the trick..

Why room temperature to high?

Printers run at a high temperature as it is. the ambient temperature in the room can affect the printing quality. If your printer is informing you the room is too hot then it is unable to pull cooler air through the vents to cool the inner workings of the printer. If your room is between 16 and 26 degrees Centigrade it will be happy. If your room is already in this range and it is still saying room is too hot then check your printer's vents. They may be clogged with dust or enclosed in an alcove that does not allow for proper airflow. If this is the case then move your printer or vacuum the vents with a vacuum cleaner.

The temperature is going high and is runing all the time

Hi mh_petrovici - When doors are opened too often or too long, warm air enters the refrigerator causing it to run more or when the room or outside temperature is hot, it is normal for the refrigerator to work longer under conditions. Temperature control may be set too cold (normally found in refrigerator section), set control to warmer setting until refrigerator temperature is satisfactory. Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize completely. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Check and see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser blocks air that dissipates the heat that the condenser removes from the unit. Clean the condenser every 6 months and more if you have animals in the house.

The oven stopped working and had error F3 on the screen. We unplugged and waited then it worked for about 1/2 hour and stopped with the same message. What's wrong

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Oven temperature sensor open

Check oven temperature sensor, should be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace oven temperature sensor

Suddenly showing "HI" in room temp window. Cold then warm air blows out.

"Hi" means your compressor has gone off on a high temperature limit. Basically, your outdoor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned or your outdoor fan has stopped working. An air conditioner works off a simple principle of removing heat using a low temperature and low pressure refrigerant. Your compressor does what it is called. It changes that low temperature, low pressure refrigerant into a high temperature and high pressure refrigerant. Your outdoor fan blows over that high pressure gas and it blows out hot air. First thing to check is to turn your unit on, and go outside and feel if you have any air blowing out the back. If you don't, you have a bad fan. If you do, you need to clean your coil. Spray some simple green on your outdoor coil and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then grab a hose and under low water pressure, wash out your coil from top to bottom pointing the hose in a downward direction. You do not want to point the hose straight into the unit. Make sure you disconnect the power and allow it a couple hours to dry before you plug it back in. If it's just a dirty coil, you should be good to go after that!!

Thermastat is reading colder than the actual temperature of the room

Your question is phrased a little odd.

1) If when you say 'thermostat' - you are actually talking about a 'temperature reading' on your thermostat - then I would tell you to just get another temp measuring device and double-check the temp.

2) if howerver you are talking about the set-point of your thermostat - for example - you might have it set on 70 degrees and the room temperature is 78 - then I would say that the AC is not big enough to pull the temp down to 70 in the room, or, you have a problem with the AC that does not allow the unit to pull the temp down.

good luck!

Do rinnai heaters run efficiently if turned up and down often?

Maintaining the lowest acceptable setting and leaving it at that temperature is the most economical way to run the unit. If the space is going to be unoccupied for an extended time (several hours), lower temperatures are okay. This minimizes the need to burst the heat to warm the space quicker. As I understand your unit, it minimizes electrical & gas consumption by basing the need on the temperature difference of actual space temperature and setpoint. The larger the gap, the more power and gas is consumed.
In summary, when the space is occupied, maintain a consistent temperature setting. When the space is unoccupied, maintain a lower setpoint.

Hope this helps. Good Luck. :-)

Ice smells and tastes baaaad, water smells and tastes baad!!!! I changed the line and it still stinks...please help...

Check all of this;

  • Remove spoiled food
  • Clean refrigerator interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda
  • Clean the door seals
  • Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation

To remove the breaker strips it is important to bring them up to room temperature first. If they are too cold they will be brittle and may crack. To warm the strips you can open the freezer and allow it to come up to room temperature (wait 2 to 4 hours) or you can soak a towel in warm water and hold it against the strips to warm them.

Good luck:
