Are you sure the clicking didn't come from your printer because I had the same problem with my Pixma MP830 and I had to pay $9.99 for the solution. :P I called Canon’s technical support for help even though I have an expired warrantee, so that’s why this little piece of information was so expensive. Oh well, at least I didn’t cry and I’m happy that it’s fixed. lol
So this is the problem, just like everyone keeps saying: THE USB CORD IS IN THE PHONE JACK AND THE FAX THINKS THAT THE PRINTER IS “ON HOOK.” The thing is, in the back of the printer you have a column of jacks, the one on top has an icon of a phone and the one on bottom has a picture of an “L” or laptop. TAKE YOUR USB CORD OUT OF EITHER ONE OF THOSE, NO MATTER WHICH ONE IT MAY BE. What you may not have figured out by now is that there is a THIRD jack that is nowhere near those two. If you’re facing the front of the printer to the far right of the backside of the machine, there is this deep cavity that has your third, miracle jack in it. It’s even more to the right than the two jacks I described previously and its icon looks like a sideways, three-pronged cactus. Plug the square end of the USB cord into that jack, and the In Use/Memory light should stop blinking, and your printer can stop acting like car because the annoying, turn-signal clicking should stop as well. :)
You’re problem was probably the same as mine, when you moved your printer, you neglected to find your instructions manual (because you probably neglected to put that in a safe placed too lol) and you forgot which jack the USB cord went into.
Well, I hope my help was clear and that my $9.99 can go towards helping all those with this same problem and that you get some use out of my own stupidity and what seems like a waste of my money. lol

Hello.

if the blue lights keep flashing you have shorted parts inside. usually the inverter board have a shorted IC, try to remove the connector from inverter then try again..

if your blue lights lit replace the inverter which you disconnect.

My pc havet a drive for my flash memory


If you want to format to remove all the data from your flash drive and wipe it clean you do not need a program as you can do it through windows.
Step 1 - Plug in your flash drive to a working usb port Step 2 - Click on start and then click My Computer. Step 3 - Find your memory stick. In most cases drive C is your hard drive and drive D is your disc drive. This means that your memory stick is most likely drive E. It is a removable storage device and not your hard drive. This is very important because you don't want to format your hard drive. Step 4 - Back up any data you want to keep from your flash drive. When you are done with the formatting everything will have been removed from it. Drag the files you want to keep from your memory stick onto a folder on your computer. Step 5 - In your My Computer folder right click on your flash drive icon and click format.

Led with number 9 displayed is flashing


LED 9 flashing can mean many things. Here is the list of "flashing codes" for the vostro 1510.

Keep in mind a flashing led is going to blink 3 times. for example,

number one would look like this:

On (solid lit). Blink, blink,blink (paused off) blink, blink, blink... (paused off), (then repeat)


1. ON-FLASH-FLASH = No Ram or ram not seen
2. ON-FLASH-ON = Ram has a problem
3. FLASH-FLASH-FLASH = Motherboard failure (replace board)
4. FLASH-ON-ON = CPU Fault/failure
5. FLASH-ON-FLASH = LCD detect failure/fault
6. ON-ON-FLASH = MINI pci card (controller) failure/fault
7. FLASH-FLASH-OFF = Keyboard fault/failure
8. FLASH-OFF-FLASH = USB FAILURE
9. FLASH-FLASH-ON = Video BIOS or BIOS issue
10. ON-FLASH-FLASH = Modem issue

Depending on the blinking code, you might just need to re-seat or replace your RAM or your CPU. But then again, you could have a more severe motherboard issue.

Light touch control panel always lit. "not available" keeps flashing on screen.


This is a common problem--the touch-sensitive buttons on the front panel are malfunctioning. Easiest solution is to unplug that control board from the main board inside the TV. See here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t886190-constantly_flashing_not_available

hiya
these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.

they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.

try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.

hope this helps


please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
