I'm currently fixing one bought from that famous auction website.
Same symptoms: Standby led, nothing more.
I'm assuming you have checked the 2 obvious fuses...(?)
Mine had the the "thermal" fuse INSIDE the big transformer blown, to check this unplug the yellow and white wires from the small board where the AC in plugs are and measure the transformes primary resistance. (It should be around 13 ohm if transformer is OK.)
If primary is open-circuited things get harder: I had to unscrew the transformer then release it from its fixing plate and "U", break the white plastic close to the core. (where the white an yellow wires enter)
Then the delicate bit: With a fine screw driver / knife loosen the varnish and tape in the small gap where the wires enter without breaking the transformers copper wires. Rewire with a new fuse or like most technicians with no fuse. (In that case you still have overload protection from F601 on the rear board but no thermal protection.)

In the phone setting, call blocking and Identification, I have enabled Hiya. iOS 10. Hiya not displaying spam or blocking incoming calls.


Sorry to hear that! It sounds like CallKit is not integrating properly with the app. In addition to un/reinstalling, it can help to turn off Hiya in Settings, force-quit Settings, uninstall Hiya, restart your device, and then reinstall Hiya. If you see calls in your native call log history identified (especially spam/scam) then you know CallKit has integrated. If not, then it can help to open Hiya, close by home button, and reopen Hiya and then recheck your call log (sometimes that gives CallKit the jump-start it needs).

With all this said, in the next two weeks, we will have an update that should fix this bug - and help us troubleshoot if you continue to have issues.

Trouble light comes on, can barely read the instruction around it(faded over time)It says to push a red button but not sure where the button is. Help!!

When trouble light comes on, it indicates that the hi-limit is tripped (this happens when oil temperature exceeds 450 Fahrenheit). The red button is located at the upper back panel of the unit, give it a push to reset but if nothing happens after resetting the button, the hi-limit needs to be replaced. Also try to check if the thermostat is working, stuck thermostat's mechanical contact will cause the hi-limit to trip.

Greetings, I just replaced the Chopper

as with most instalations or reinstalations after repair the most common fault for a non responcive machine is forgetting to turn the water tapes back to the on posistion so i would 1st surgest that you double check you have returned the water feed to the on posistion, No water feed will prevent the machine running properly.

Hope this helps

Is it an MDS-JE530? Do you have a minidisc in it? If yes, then unplug the unit. Slide the little switch from TIMER "OFF" to "PLAY", then plug the unit back in. After 10 seconds, it should turn on and start playing the minidisc. Let me know if that works or if we need to try something else, okay?

Error tonersns

The toner leak can cause the optical pair responcible for the toner sencing to become dirty. The easiest way to try and rectify this is to vacuum clean the area under the drum unit. At the left side of that area there is a small lever with the magnet in it. Check if it moves smoothly. Vacuum clean everything around that lever. There can be some other reasons worth to check. I put them in this article: It's all in Russian but using online translators and looking at the pictures you'll be able to catch the idea of what should be checked.
