It appears your main controller or touch panel has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Possible that the main power has failed , the power supply of the unit had packed up or there is a serious fault in the controller unit. You need to open the control panel unit to trace this case specially using a multimeter, check for the AC power to the unit and check for the DC to the circuit. If not the panel is a suspect.

Singer 160 Wrong voltage for Australia


Yep same happened to me, scared me, thought I had killed my wife\'s present, went and brought a 100VA (min power required) step down transformer convertor plug in type , still didn\'t work, has to be a fuse somewhere, no warranty on international purchase anyway so had a go at opening it up, undid all the screws took off the end part (near the needle) and still seemed hard to open, of course being a modern device it was clips, levered the cover off (from the back), undid four screws on circuit board found the glass fuse (thank god it wasn\'t some special surface mount thermal type etc) had a box of different fuses and looked it was the small 2A 250V glass type so swapped it out, put it back together and tada! Fixed!

Bread machine sparked when plugging into wall outlet


The power supply of the breadmaker has been compromised. In aa few of the early B&D's tyhere was an internal fuse. However, one has to know why it fused when connecting which begs the question what has happened while it lay dormant since the last usage.

Moisture is usually the fiorst thought, but mice piddle has to be considered too if it has any areas on it that mice could get in. Bare wire on the cord itself is also not to be under estimated as a cause.

Cannot boot or enter setup. ASUS A7V600-X


Hi,

I'm managed to fix this myself.

The system would hang at power-up, simply displaying the ASUS screen, and
I could not get into the BIOS setup at all with the usual pressing of the <DEL> key. I was completely stuck. Did this mean I needed a new motherboard?

I hoped not, so I downloaded the userguide for my particular motherboard from the ASUS US website, from another machine. Browsed through it and found where the jumpers were located on the motherboard to clear the RTC (Real Time Clock) and system settings on the CMOS chip. This meant: removing the battery on the motherboard; moving the jumpers to clear the CMOS settings; waiting a few seconds; moving the jumpers back; reconnecting the battery; rebooting. And hey presto! I could get back into the BIOS set up, where I then had to set the correct date and time, and the processor speed once more. And then a final reboot, letting it go all the way to load the OS in full.

I'm back...
