    The red light flashes continuously and the blanket does not warm up. I have tried to contact Imetec via phone and their website. The recorded phone message says that they are closed for the Christmas holiday and will reopen on Tuesday 6th January - that was yesterday and the same message was recived today. The web site www.imetec.co.uk shows a blank screen. Have Imetec become a casualty of the current financial problems?

    I have the same problem, have looked in the instruction manual for a fix, and searched Google for other websites which offer a workaround without any luck.

    I have the same problem.  I have just seen this website that says some have been recalled,  so I will go and look if ours is one of the dodgy ones!

    Yep, same problem. Come on Dreamland sort it out!

    I think we have a damaged Imetec Dreamland controller. We have a double so I could try swapping the controllers. With the other controller it heats, of course. I have tried to take it apart, but unfortunately only by damaging the hooks that holds it. there are four of them, and in principle they could be pushed from the side outward: get inside with a screwdriver under about 30 deg and try to find the hook, it a plastic thing with slopy head...I couldn't do that without damaging the hooks...You may be luckier or better diy person.

    After that i'll check if the fixed fuse alive or not... (but at the moment my multimeter doesn't work, battery ended...)

    Instead of contacting Dreamland I decided to try fixing it because I simply cannot find any contact to Dreamland...There are pprobably hundreds of websites containing the word dreamland...

    Anyone have a website address?

    Thanks

Yes we had an electric duvet from this company and it stopped working. Was replaced very kindly and no fuss by John Lewis and the same thing happened. (They had said they wouldn't replace again) . Spoke to the company but the woman was very rude. Said that if we lived in a rural area that was our tough luck basically. (A power surge or something). I don't think that's acceptable but we have given up on it now. I think there are 'known' issues with these products that are beingswept under the carpet.

Dreamland gave us a free replacement King/dual blanket to replace a dud one 4 or 5 years ago - my side of the 'new' one only ever worked intermittently - now the red light only flashes twice each 5 seconds and ... no heat!! Now I can't find their e-mail/address. Sacre bleu!!

I had the same problem, after opening the casing by breaking off the internal hooks, I bridged out the controller completely by unsoldering the blue wire (must be that one) at the blanket end of the controller, and linking from the now free blue wire to the other blue wire on the mains input end. The blanket will now be on maximum heat all the time without any timer or heat control, so you should only use it with an external timeswitch. I used a tyrap to keep the casing together.

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

No left turn signal or indicator


Hi Anonymous, start by checking for continuity at the turn signal switch, then check the wiring harness connector to your turn signal module for corroded, broken or loose pins and the red key light is your security alarm indicator light, for more information on your question please visit the websites below and good luck:

Hi Shiman,

Are you seeing any flashingred/yellow lights?

If so this is the red lighterror and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with allof the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they loseconnection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the redflashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and theywill fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and itwill also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heatbuild up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

Hope this helps and any questions let me know?

It doesn't show images in the monitor and at the same time it doesn't take pictures. thanks and more power!!!


your question is not clear. I see technical point of view. you first should disable flash mode (flash off mode), many case the flash circuit continuously force powering on whenever camera switch on and user can not use momentarily. But you can use only in day light condition if the problem condition. If not, it is shutter unit is effective that can work properly. The shutter unit is inner lens unit assemble. You should then consult to local camera tech. Thank and best regard!

Red light flashes when I try to charge it and nothing all other times. Doesn't turn on, doesn't work. I pretty sure the problem is that it is a piece of junk.

2 red flashing lights


The Xbox console is overheated.
  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating.
  3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
Taken from Microsoft support.

Best of Luck.
