Hi.
It refers to two symptoms. No power just means the machine is dead and nothing happens when you press the power button on the computer. POST stands for Power On Self Test. This is what happens just after you press the power button - the computer checks devices connected to it then starts to load Windows or whatever operating system you have. If the computer is dead, then it is often caused by a faulty power supply (metal box where the power cord goes in. If it won't POST then an error may be displayed to tell you where it stopped during POST, or error beeps may sound to tell the technician which part of POST has failed. Sometimes, you may hear the fans and hard disk, but the monitor stays dead. This is usually caused by the RAM coming loose in it's socket or the video card coming loose/ failing.

Error E063


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an E63 code on your Frigidaire Affinity dryer and want to know what it means. The E63 code means that there is possibly something going on with the heating element or some wiring inside your dryer. This can also be a false code. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Tip

How to isolate issues between hardware and software


<p>It has been one of the dilemma of computer users is to identify what is really causing the failure in their computer. Often they think that they bought a defective product since they are getting these kind of errors in the computer. Having an error on your machine does not mean that the machine is defective or needs parts replacement. for all we know it might just need some simple troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. Here is a tip where you would be able to know if you need to bring your computer to a service shop for parts replacement or you can try to fix it at home by doing some troubleshooting steps that would help fix software failure in the computer system.<br /> <br /> On a Windows based operating system, you should always know when the issue happens. It will help much to observe your computer on how it boots up and what it does before you get to the desktop screen. Take a note on where and when exactly the error occurs.<br /> <br /><b> Power Failure:</b><br /> <br /> This is an issue where there are no lights on the power button of your computer, whether it is a portable system or a desktop computer. Obviously this is a hardware failure. surprisingly, discharging the flea power of your computer sometimes resolves these kinds of issues. Otherwise, you will definitely need to have a local technician look at your system for parts replacement.<br /> <br /><b> Note:</b> flea power is the charged power of our computer system. A computer system is made up of electronic components such as capacitors which hold electronic charges. To be able to discharge it, you should disconnect all power source from your computer and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds.<br /> <br /> <br /><b> POST Failure:</b><br /> <br /> POST is an abbreviation for Power On Self Test. as the name implies, it is the test that a system goes through to test the basic hardware components needed for a computer to boot. The components that it tests are as follows: Processor, BIOS (Motherboard), Memory, keyboard and video card. If there is a POST failure, the system would give you a black screen with lights on the front panel. Sometimes it will give you beeping sounds which would normally mean that you have a memory failure on your system. If you encounter such issue, you will need hardware technical support to guide you isolate further on what could be causing the failure.<br /> <br /><b> Boot Failure:</b><br /> <br /> Boot failure is when the computer is able to complete post. You will be able to know this if you hear a single beep on your computer. Isolating a boot failure from a post failure simply requires you to boot to the System Setup/configuration Screen (BIOS). If you are able to get to the BIOS, that means all the POST hardware component are good to go. However, booting to the BIOS differs per system. You just need to do trial and error on the following keys to tap as you turn your computer on.<br /> <br /> Del<br /> F1<br /> F2<br /> F10<br /> F9<br /> ESC<br /> <br /> To isolate an issue whether it is a software or a hardware issue, you just need to boot from the BIOS. If you are able to boot from the BIOS, chances are it is not a hardware failure and needs servicing.<br /> <br /> <p><img src="vincent_von_0.jpg" /><br /> <p><br /> If booting to the BIOS works, to further isolate the issue whether it is the advanced software, you need to boot to Safe mode. Safe mode is a troubleshooting state where only the basic applications and drivers are active. If you are having errors or boot failure, try to boot to Safe Mode. If you do not encounter the failure in Safe Mode, that means that there are advanced software being loaded in your operating system that fails. It is just a matter of knowing what that software is.<br /> <br /><b> Booting to Safe Mode:</b><br /> <br /> 1. turn computer on and tap on F8 before Windows starts.<br /> 2. You will be getting the Advanced Boot options. Use the arrow keys to get to the option for Safe Mode.<br /> <br /> <p><img src="vincent_von_0.png" /><br /> <p><br /> <p><br /><b> Safe Mode Definitions:</b><br /> <br /> Safe Mode: Just basic software are being loaded. Network drivers are not included which means no internet connection<br /> <br /> Safe Mode with Networking: Basic software and Network drivers are being loaded.<br /> <br /> note: for Vista or Windows 7, it includes wireless network drivers. This means that you can still connect to the internet with a wireless connection. In Windows XP, the wireless driver is not included even if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking<br /> <br /> Safe Mode with Command prompt: this is a troubleshooting state where you will be able to utilize DOS based commands.

Frigidaire pld2855rfc1 PF Power Failure error


Good Afternoon Bob, thank you for your post! Typically error code PF means power failure and you should be able to resume or start a cycle after properly resetting the unit. Unplug the unit or flip the household circuit breaker. It is important to wait about ten minutes and then turn the unit on. The error code should clear, and then you should be able to select a normal cycle and the unit should resume to normal operations. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully.

Troubleshooting


What's the problem? If it doesn't turn on it's probably because of bad battery(s) inside of the UPS. Start there and post back.
