    My light comes on, but no beep, no keypad. I tried the start/restart thing, but no go. I would take off the panel but I am afraid I will void the warranty. I have only had the machine for two months. Although I don't think I will be able to find the reciept, so it may be a mute point. It just seems like a rip off, the thing cost me 100 bucks at target.

Don't try this unless you know what you're doing. But, if all else fails, give it a shot. I tried the fixya solutions, but none of them worked. Since I still had power to the light when I opened the lid, I assumed it was a problem with the keypad microprocessor. With the breadmaker plugged in, remove the ribbon cable connector connected to the PCB board. This will short the pins leading to the keypad. You might have to touch the connector to the pins on the circuit board a few times to make the microprocessor go "wacko" and reset itself. Once you hear the beep, the display should be working. If the convection fan or motor starts running while trying to get the display to work again just hit the reset on the keypad and choose any cycle and hit the start button. It may take 30 seconds or so for the machine to reset itself to normal operation. If anyone knows which pins to short out, I can solder in a reset button, so if this ever happens again I won't have to open the control panel. Or maybe the keypad needs to be properly grounded.

Mine was dead out of the box new. I ended up taking the circuit board off and running a dental pic along the solder joints of the two microchip processors. I now works so the joints must have been touching.

I did the second part of Solution #2 (open up the control panel with unit unplugged)but instead of grounding wires, I removed the twelve pin plug (with gray twelve wire flat wire) and reinstalled it. I suspect that the machine needed to be reset because of the 60 minute power failure feature. This happened to me because I first was setting things up and had to leave the house for several hours and unplugged the unit. When I returned, plugged it in and got no display even though power was going to the unit. Next time, I will first try the first part of Solution #2.

I had the same problem with my Breadman. Was planning to try the above suggestions, but when I plugged it in again, it started working normally. All I did was leave it unplugged for 24 hours. Go figure . . .

The problem is caused by improper shutdown. Plug it in then press and hold for 3-4 seconds. Then unplug it, wait 3-4 seconds and plug it in. If that doesn't work, repeat the entire procedure. If it still doesn't work,unplug it and remove the three screws from the control panel assembly, and pop off the control panel, remove the bottom cover of the control panel and with a probe, one by one, ground out the five wires that are covered with a soft vinyl insulator: White, Blue, Black, Yellow, Red. Reassemble and it should beep when you plug it in.

Here is the link for the user manual for your machine if you need it; Unfortunately it sounds as if either the main control board has fried itself or the power supply to the main board has developed a fault-otherwise error messages should appear if there was a minor fault. First thing to try is to check the power transformer/rectifier for the board (or get someone electrically minded to do it), then if no luck contact toastmaster - the details are on the last page of the manual with the warranty information. You should be able to get a replacement board, although check the price first. Hope this helps :)

Oh, you probably got this fixed already. If it happens again, it helps to take the control panel off, insert paper towel folded up neatly and slotted into the ribbon (it absorbs the moisture which causes the ribbon to short out). Sounds crazy but it's true! I saved our family hundreds of dollars with a piece of paper towel!

The yellow light comes on inside but the computer won't come on neither does it beep?

First remove any power cables and batteries(if laptop) from your system and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.

Plug the power cable back in & attempt to boot.
If this does not solve your problem then you will need to remove all non-essentials from your system.

If laptop, this simply consist of battery, ram, optical drive & any other removable bays or devices. Unplug all cables except the power cable & attempt to boot.

If desktop, you will need to remove any cables plugged into your computer except keyboard, mouse, power, video, sound, & network cable. Open the case & remove any PCI cards, except video cards, unless you have on-board video, unplug the data & power cables going to the optical & hard drives. Now attempt to boot. If you have no luck you can remove your RAM sticks & try again. If you get an error beep warning you about no ram then you might have a bad ram stick. If none of the above works then you may have a bad power supply or motherboard. Power supplies are pretty easy to test with tester or use a spare.

I have a Samsung household microwave oven model # SMH8165ST that when plugged in will beep a few times then blink "SE". None of the buttons will work.

Try calling Samsung....
Purchased samsung SMH8165ST in Oct 2009. have had the SE code problem for a few month now. Resetting worked at first. Then the light started flasing on & off along with the beeping...would not reset. Out of frustration I called Samsung. I was told they are aware of the problem & would repair in the "epidemic warranty". Repair man just left. It took him about 15 minutes to change out the keypad. No charge!!

My number keypad on my KB_0532 keyboard is not working. i'm fairly sure its something my granddaughter has done. she is 2 and loves to go wild on the keyboard. do you have an idea of what i could do to fix...

There's a button at the keypad area called "Num Lock". Press that button and notice that an extra light on your keyboard will light up. Your numbers should work again now. Cheers :)

Coffee maker beeping

Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.

Breadman ultimate....power but blank screen

(N.B. I think there may be two variants of the Ultimate Plus, TR2500BC. They can be
distinguished by the number of rivets in the pan, 3 or 4. Mine has 3.)

I had a similar problem. Holding down the Reset button and plugging
or unplugging the machine didn't work for me. (Note: I've been
pretty careful to hold the Reset button when I unplug the machine
after baking a loaf.) This procedure worked for me:

1. Unplug the machine.
2. Remove the plastic keypad housing. There are three screws: left,
right, rear. (Note: One has a different thread from the others.)
3. Rock the housing back and forth to remove it.
4. Remove the white protective cover. It has two screws.
5. (You *did* unplug the machine, didn't you?)
6. Identify the ribbon cable and locate where its connector seats on
the circuit board.
7. The circuit board has little printed labels opposite each pin.
At one end are the labels GND, VCC, VDD, in order.
8. Short together GND and VCC with a small piece of wire by sticking
the ends of the wire into the top of the connector to touch the contacts.
9. Do the same with GND and VDD.
10. The machine should work now. With the keypad housing, circuit
board, and cables safely away from the metal body, plug the machine in.
You should hear a beep, and all should be well.
11. Rejoice, be glad, and make some bread.
