Not really. There is just the blinking red lights: usually power issue or motherboard issue.

And the YLOD, usually releated to a video chip problem but it's always a hardware defect which causes that one.

Blinking yellow wrench light on pride jazzy 614 HD


Your version has a Dynamic Controls model controller and joystick.
Unplug the charger and engage the motor/brake lever so the chair is no longer in free-wheel mode (con't push by hand)
Turn the chair off, wait 5 seconds, turn the chair back.
If chair still does not run and your wrench is flashing you have a problem. Count the wrench flashes - the flash count indicates the error detected. 3, 4, 5, and 6 flashes indicate and error with the motors.
3=Left motor fault
4=Right motor fault
5=Left brake fault (may not be engaged)
6=Right brake fault (may not be engaged)
Any other fault code usually means the electronics or wiring is bad and not worth fixing.

Plasma tv th-42pd50u not come on and keep blinking red light two times and then stop again blinking red light two times and then stop not come on


The light blinking twice means there is a fault within the system and it is a code to tell Panasonic where roughly the fault lies.
Go to Panasonic's web site and look for your set then input the fault code and hopefully they will tell you where the fault lies.

I turned my ps3 on today and the light turned green, then amber and red and the system beeps three times. the red light then just keeps flashing. When i tap it while its blinking it stops but when i do...


Although you say it can't be overheated, it is possible it is a result of overheating. When you get this error it means a general hardware fault. However, the most common fault found is when either the CPU or GPU processors become so hot that the solder devlopes microscopic cracks that do not close when it cools. This means that there is not a good electrical contact and the PS3 fails. So your PS3 may have been working fine the day before but when you turned it off it would of been hot inside. The circuit board and components would of cooled down essentially making the solder joints contract and open up the cracks in them.

There are guides out there to repair YLOD (yellow light of death) which explain step by step how to fix it. Unfortunately it is not a permanent fix and your console could only last hours after doing it.

Usually you will need a replacement PS3. If it is still under warranty give Sony a call who will replace it free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
