Power supply C554, a 100uF 16V electrolytic capacitor seems to be under rated for ripple current and dries up. It does not vent or deform. Replacing this capacitor with a 2200uF 25V electrolytic capacitor completely fixes the problem. If you cannot find a part that is physically small enough, you can connect some insulated wire leads to the capacitor and tack solder them to the place where C554 mounts. Locate the part in the space close to where the power transformer resides, but make sure it will still fit when you close the case before you commit to a location. Secure it with a drop of hot melt glue. This fix restores proper operation to the clock - even without a battery installed. Note: another symptom of this problem is that the clock works with a fresh battery for a day or two, then resets to the "Zone 1" display, finally then blinking "Zone 1" continuously as the battery dies. The problem is NOT the "watchdog" or any other part of the circuitry. It is the lack of filtering of VCC causing the micro to go through resets when the supply droops.

The immobilizer light in my 2006 sienna just recently start flashing when key is out. It normally turns off after a few seconds. BUT recently continued to flash until key is insert again. How can this...


Unfortunetly the dealers haven't given out any information on the security systems yet. (well guarded secret) You will have to go to the dealer to find out what is wrong with it.

E25


hello,


All error codes start with the letter "E". An error code of E11 will have the five indicator lights flash once and the Start indicator light flash once.


Some models of Frigidaire washers come with a digital readout display that informs the operator of the unit's function and any errors.

Error codes indicate that a problem has occurred and should be addressed. Different models of Frigidaire washers may vary in their fault displays.

Some washer models use flashing lights at the unit's start, door lock, wash, rinse, final spin and control indicators to display error codes.



If the five indica

tor lights flash more than nine times, this signals a letter in the error code. The letter "A" stands for 10 flashes, "B" for 11, "C" for 12, "D" for 13, "E" for 14 and "F" for 15 flashes. An error code of EB2 will have the five indicator lights flash or blink 11 times, and the Start indicator light blink twice

hope this help?

thanks.

Flashing red center light


With most flat panel TVs, the TV turn itself OFF when it has a fail electronic part and the red light starts flashing. They call this "Protection Mode". The flashing red light should be a error trouble code.
But, it's weird that everything is working and the red light is flashing. Since you just recently bought the TV, I would get it check out while it's still under warranty. Better safe, than sorry.

Possible monitor or graphics card malfunction


The monitor is bad. The flashing is telling you that something inside the monitor has gone out. If it is still under warranty they should either fix your monitor or give you a replacement. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
