    same problem with a 42kg5a3405b... it starts ok, then erratically --because could be any time, minutes, hours, etc-- flashes 5 times and closes itself. maybe it would start again but sometimes it doesnt. this model is 220v, cooler only, split system. if i reset its mains breaker outdoors it will "reset" and could make it work since when it falls into the blink state on/off via remote wont work. no error codes chart in the indoor unit nor user manual

    Where is this led at on thermostat, indoor or out door unit , or is this a package unit all in one?
    Is it set to cool or heat? Are you cooling or heating when this happens?
    Do you see or hear anything different?
    Are these flashes of the same time length or quick then longer or vice versea?
    Is it gas heat? Electric Heat?

This problem is outdoor unit issue. Blinking 4 times in carrier highwall unit means Compressor drive malfunction. Possible cause are the following: - Stuck up or grounded compressor. - Magnetic contractor in outdoor unit is defective or indoor unit relay supplying outdoor unit is defective. - No power supply going to outdoor unit.

As i am a mechanic in sydney australia, i can honestly say that the chance of you getting help via carrier is very very slim... the reason it is doing that is that it has a legitimate problem unfortunately i have a carrier 42g250h which is flashing 4 times aswell... i have been waiting now 10 working days for carrier to call me to tell me what the problem is... if you can afford to do it, throw the damn thing out and buy a new one, i hate to say it but even an LG will work better than these heaps of ****

How to program ct 68a remote


Text from manual below. Pictures of manual attached.


TO"LEARN" A FIX CODE PROGRAM FROM ANOTHER UNIT:
1. Press and hold both buttons (1 & 2) on the SPR. The LED will flash three times. Keep holding {for about five
seconds) until the LED flashes again (twice), indicating that it's ready to duplicate your garage door opener's
code. Release both buttons (Fig. 1 ).
2. Place your existing garage door remote and the SPR unit within an inch of each other. Press and hold the
first button on the existing unit while pressing button 1 on the SPR unit. The LED will flash, indicating that it
is learning. Keep holding the buttons until the LED light goes out. At this point, the SPR unit has duplicated
the code (Fig. 2).
3. Follow Step 2 to duplicate another code.
4. Exit the learning mode after duplicating codes by pressing and holding both buttons on the SPR unit. The
LED will flash once to indicate that you have exited learning mode. Examine the unit to see if your codes
were duplicated completely.


TO EXAMINE CODES:
If the remote is programmed correctly, the LED stays lit while the button is pressed.
If code duplication has failed, the LED will flash when the button is pressed. Follow Step 1 again if duplication
has failed.



TO LEARN GENIE ROLLING CODES:
Genie rolling codes require special additional instructions to program. Once step 1 through step 4 of the Fixed Code
Instructions are completed, you must do the following:
A. Pra•ce the SPR on the top surface near the rear of the original Genie
Remote instead of setting the two units side by side during Step 2 of the
Fixed Code Instruction; shown as Fig. 3
B: Press the Learn Code Button on the Genie Unit. The LED on it will keep
flashing.
C: Press the program button on the SPR. The LED on the Genie Unit will stop
flashing and become a solid glow
D: Press the same button on the SPR for the second time- turning off the
LED light on Genie Unit and finish the Genie Code Duplication.
E: Follow the EXAMINE CODE section of the fixed code instruction to test code duplication.
F. Follow the above steps if you wish to duplicate another Genie Code on your SPR.
NOTE:
If the first time you only programmed one button on your SPR, and you would like to program the second button later
on, either with FIXED CODE or GENIE ROLLING CODE, you will have to REPEAT step one of the fixed code
instruction to enter the leaning mode; then follow the instruction listed previously. After duplication, you will have to
repeat step 4 of the fixed code instruction for exit learning mode as well. This is very important.

BLINKING GREEN LIGHT AND WILL NOT POWER UP


You can check the Error code by doing the following.

On the Front panel hold down the Device and Menu Button for 5 seconds. The LED light will then start flashing the first set of flashing lights is for the "1"5 part of the code it will then pause for about a half second and start the ones place 1"5". The code will repeat 5 times before going off.

The Error Codes: 12 - Normal Operation; 21 - X-Ray Protect; 22 - Short Protect; 23 - Loss of Horizontal Deflection; 24 - Loss of Vertical Deflection.

The problem may also be in the power supply when you first plug the device in check how many times the Led blinks if it blinks for just over a minute the power supply is working fine. If the Led blinks repeatedly and does not stop the DM is not running.

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.

Carrier Gas Furnace runs fine randomly stops blowing LEDs flash


That blinking light may be the diagnostic light. Count the blinks next time it fails. Carrier units will have two different blinks depicting the error code such as one blink followed by a pause than 3 blinks giving you an error code of 13. Then look at the wiring diagram, it will have an error code chart telling you where to start with your diagnosis. You already know that if you remove the cover it erases the error code, so look thru the small window first.

Carrier split 42G250HF-1(indoor unit


I'm not sure exactly what unit you have and what controls you have installed on the unit. But....there usually is a flash code schematic on the unit. Usually on the inside of the blower compartment cover. This should tell you what is wrong with the unit. It could have a low voltage short somewhere and is loosing the call for cool. So the answer can be a possible yes to your question but without knowing the flash code, it's hard to tell from my point of view. You might end up calling a service professional out to check it.

If it's a hot surface ignition system I'd guess it has a bad ignitor from your clues. If however it's a spark ignition system I'd guess it has a bad ignition control.

Have you eliminated the possibility of a high or low pressure error. Sounds to me like it's off on safety. Should have troubleshooting the flash right on the panel. Test your pressure switches for continuity.
