The 5840 has a problem with dust getting on the heater element and turning itself off after 2 minutes running. HERE IS THE FIX. Unplug the unit from the AC outlet, Then using a can of dusting air ( the kind you use to clean a computer key board) aim the compressed air INTO the middle louver of the upper adjustable heater vent and blow out the dust that has gotten on the heater element. ( You are actually blowing into the unit, clearing off the lint/dust that has gotten on the backside of the heater element that you can not see without openning the entire case).You can see the front of the heater element inside the louvers, It's the shinny metal part that looks like a small radiator.It sits behind the middle louver. After blowing out the dust, shake the entire unit to allow the dust to settle to the bottom of the case. Using a vacum cleaner try to vacum out any dust from the LOWER FRONT intake. Once the dust has been blown OFF the heater element, the unit will work just as new and not shut itself down!

It needs some cleaning .. you need to open the unit and vacuum all the collected dust in front of the heating element and back ...and all the visible dust ,,,

Cleaning did not work for me, but this is the best option if it works. Definitely try that first. I cleaned the mesh filter at bottom of front of heater, blew air through element as recommended above, still shut down regularly except when used in very cold room, then it stayed on. I thought it might be an air flow problem, as restrictive flow could cause heat to build up. I cut a square hole, approx 3" by 3" in middle back of unit, no shut downs since. I suppose you could tape a filter over hole if you like, I left it open. I think the mesh filter at bottom front doesn't allow enough air in, could cause a higher running temp.

LASKO 5624 will not turn on. The red light underneath the clock button is on. How do I reset? Is this broke after 20 uses?


Disconnect power, (unplug); wait for over 20 minutes, (have a cup of coffee); Depress power button before pluggging in to wall socket . (This will let any voltages that are stored in the unit drain off).
Plug in to AC outlet and press power to turn on.
If this doesn't work, Lasko has a 3 year warantee.

Dennon gets hot shuts off


how are your four outside speakers hooked up? If you have four speakers hooked up to only two output channels on the receiver, the receiver is sensing a short and shutting down to avoid damage to the amp.

Red power light blinking on my denon avr 1907, tried reset procedure, no speakers hooked up now and it still goes from green light to blinking red light and shuts off...Any clues?


This is a protection mode. The receiver protection circuit detects an internal problem like missing power supply voltage or blown channel and shuts down the receiver. You need to bring the unit to a repair facility.

X 346 powers on, then shuts down - no HDD installed


Even without the harddrive, you should be able to see the server power up with Bios/Memory test. It should be able to indicate to you that no drive found. In addition, you should be able to press F1 or F2 to enter into system setup.....hope this help
