Still it sounds like weak batteries. Be sure to use either rechargeable batteries ( charge for a minimum of 14 hours ) or alkaline. DO NOT USE "heavy duty" carbon-zinc cells - they're only good for low power equipment.

Why are parking lights flashing 5 times at startup


Replaced electronic module ?????? Which electrical module ? Did you have the vehicle check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ? Not engine OBD2 code's ,but the body control system modules . FEM - front electronic module , REM - rear electronic module plus the instrument cluster ! The main light switch is an input to the istrument cluster . Everything is done by computer , input from main light switch for park lamp activation or headlamps ,running light's etc.. to the instrument cluster . The instrument cluster has a microprocessor inside ,with logic . The I/C will send a message over the SCP serial data communication bus to the other modules ,and the one the message is intended for will read it an turn on the light's or what ever the message tell's it to.
The park light's flash when ? Opening the doors , when starting the vehicle ????? Content theft system function ? do the horns sound too ?

Warning lights stay on


It sounds like the ignition switch is signaling to the dash (in error) upon startup. It may be the switch itself.

We have a cannon a2000is. After replacing the batteries and printing the pictures off the memory card the camera will not come back on. The screen says Cannon and the indicator light blinks for aprox 20...


It sounds like a low power startup. Are you sure the batteries that you are installing are good? If they're Dollar Store "Super Heavy Duty" batteries, that's likely your problem (shelf life has been exceeded).
Recommend trying to start the camera with premium alkaline, or best yet, rechargeable batteries (they have the most power, and save you money too!). If the above doesn't work, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old. The camera in that case would be eligible for warranty repair.

Will not power up


There are several reason why digital camera doesn't stay ON even when the batteries are fully charge or use brand new batteries. You can try to do the following steps to make sure that there is something wrong on the camera and not just batteries.

- Remove the batteries from the camera and the memory card
- Make sure that your using a brand new batteries
- Clean the battery contacts with a clean dry cloth
- verify that the batteries are inserted correctly
- Set the camera in Auto then turn it on
[Listen if there is a grinding sound on the lens part of the camera.]

Most Digital Camera turn itself Off when the lens won't zoom. So, if your camera start up and lens moves before it turns off and you can switch it on a different mode and it works. You need to contact your camera manufacturer and have the camera sent for repair. It might be wiring issue on the lens part of the digital camera

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.

Aspire one black screen but mouse appear


Hi Giannluca,

when you turn it on, does it show startup information? E.g. BIOS screen on start-up, windows loading etc? If not, try this:

Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds when its turned on. This should power of your laptop completely, then try turning it on again and let me know what it does.
