"Wand on cleaning center won't stay down when charging or cleaning..... If you wish to try to fix it yourself and want some more help, please post again."
Noggin, if you can post how to fix the base unit myself, then that would help me out immensely. Thanks.
If you take the cover off (do it carefully or you will break he plastic for the indicator lights, like i did) there is a white piece of plastic that holds the wand. just snap that piece back in place and it should now stay down again.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

your disc reader is dirty and needs cleaned..this can be done 2 ways.. one is to buy a can of electronic dusting spray, use the wand attatched to the nozzle .. stick the wand into the dvd slot and spray short bursts into the center area of the slot( dvds record and play from the center-out) the other is to find the screws that hold the cover on the unit(usually phillips head) and remove them..carefully remove the entire cover exposing the inner works of the recorder, again using the duter spray, clean the entire inside of the unit..paying close attention to the lens area of the reader..make sure not to blast it too hard and loosen the base..just enough to dust it off..then replace the cover and run the unit normally.. these units are quickly showing up at resale shops everywhere as folks are getting new digital recorders that record to a hard drive..so you may find a replacement there..I have several..
There is a ball valve between the wand hose and the base hose. It can get stuck in the "base" mode, which won't then redirect suction to the wand hose. There is a spring under the cup that the open end of the hose rests in. When you release the wand from the holster with the one-touch quick release, that spring pushes the cup up and turns the ball valve to the wand setting.
Unplug the vacuum.
Using the one-touch quick release, remove the wand from the holster.
Verify that the wand "cup" is indeed in the higher position. Do this by pushing on the bottom of the cup with your finger. It should easily depress.
Remove the wand hose from the main unit using the quick disconnect feature. Put your fingers into the hole and feel to the right. You will feel the closed valve, verifying that it is stuck in "base" mode.
Using a screw driver, insert the tip at the TOP of this valve and gently pry it downward. This shouldn't take much force.
Reassemble the hose wand using the quick connect feature and reholster the wand.
Plug in the unit and verify that the base unit has suction.
Remove the wand from the holster and verify IT has suction.
My Dyson dc18 had the same symptoms. The wand worked well and the floor bar had no suction. After removing pieces & shoving my fingers into the machine (no blockage) I found the suction pipe rotates between two positions (floor and wand). It looks like a piece of plastic broke on the outside housing, so it no longer rotates positions when the wheels are raised or lowered. My son found we can move the suction by sliding a finger into the mechanism behind the wheel cover, and rotating the plastic piece clock-wise or counter clock-wise until it locks into position. It's a big pain but it works for now. I wish I could find a replacement piece online. Patty
Often these oven stay closed for up to 4 hours. Also often after doing this thing, the temperature sensors fail. You see how it "Cleans" itself, is by heating up inside to nearly 900 degrees!! this simply "Burns Off" anything inside , then the Oven must cool down. So the Door interlocks, are on a Timer, to stop it being opened prematurely. But as said often a part will malfunction,and stop it from working Try a disconnection from the mains this should re-set it. if it doesn't you will have to get ir t looked at by a professional. unless of course you wish to troubleshoot and fix yourself. There are many sites that can help you do that online.
This is a pretty complicated issue/problem. there are 5 pages devoted to this issue in the service manual. This issue would be best handled by a technician. but you could try the following....
[CA00] Color registration abnormality
<Color toner low density>
Turn on the copier holding down 0 and 8 and wait till it boots up into its service mode..then enter code 2692 “Prevention of color toner low density / change the zero to 1.
Then change code 2693 “Prevention of color toner low density / Judged number of sheets setting” value to 40 (default 20).
Make sure you have cleaned the main charge units by fully extending the rods with the green handles for each color.(open the front door) and use the plastic wand attached to the front door to clean the laser glass for each color..there is a small **** under each color unit to slid the wand into..felt side down on the wand.
Like I said there are several other complicated ways of fixing this.
Here is the link to the user manual for your shaver if you need it;
The release button on the back end of the shaver must activate a couple of small pins or levers that release the mechanism in the base unit to allow the shaver to be removed.
If these pins or levers (sorry it isn't clear from the picture) are still moving in and out when you press the release button, the problem is in the base unit. Where these pins/levers would be if the shaver was in the base unit will be the latches that keep the shaver from coming out - it sounds as if one or both of these is broken or stuck - they are probably spring loaded, so a gentle poke with a small screwdriver or similar may free the latch. if they are not obviously broken or stuck, then the problem may be with the springs. this may well be easily fixable depending on how keen you are to take the unit apart yourself.
