Roach invasion left detritus on A&E conotrol panel

Called repairman, who said Part #8531234 on ribbon cable to PC board (bar code R3M309ZA on board) needed to be replaced. Dishwasher still under warranty when situation occurred in 2006 but condition not covered. Repairman said replacement would cost $500 (original cost of entire machine). I could not and still cannot afford that so have been using DW as dish drainer. Now, with old age and arthritis I need the dishwasher but don't know where to turn. I certainly cannot afford a new one!

50 sanyo hdtv model dp50747 with a black bar or colored lines about 1 wide down left side of screen. I have checked all the ribbon cables and made sure all were tight and good conection. What next?


Definitely drivers, and may or may not be repairable. Here is what I understand. It depends on how the plasma panel in that set was made. Some panels have the X-drivers on a separate board. Others bond the drivers to the plastic ribbon connected to the panel. If it's a separate board, the board can be replaced. If it's bonded to the ribbon, it's virtually impossible to replace the defective chip.

Bc sensor error


Bar code read error: The printer does not detect the presence of the ribbon bar code sensor

1. Power down the printer. Remove the ribbon and wipe the two lenses of the ribbon bar code sensor with a lint-free cloth or cotton swab.
2. Install the ribbon and power on the printer. If the message appears again, replace the ribbon.
3. Power on the printer. If the message appears again, power down the printer and remove the paper path or top cover to gain access to the card cage. Make sure the cable from the ribbon bar code sensor to connector J122 on the controller board is undamaged and has a good connection to J122.
4. Power on the printer. If the message appears again, power down the printer and replace the ribbon bar code sensor.
5. Power on the printer. If the message appears again, power down the printer and replace the controller board. Record the message and return it with the defective board.

Remove ribbon cable


1) Don't know of any daughterboard Donald.

( A Daughterboard connects to the Motherboard, as an extension of the motherboard. Components plug into the daughterboard as they would the motherboard )

That is a USB/ Audio/ Ethernet board,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-Eee-PC-1001PX-USB-Audio-Board-69NA2BB11B01-Ethernet-/280836767618

2) The cables are FFC. Flat Flex Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

The connector/s on the motherboard are a style of ZIF connector.
ZERO INSERTION FORCE.

The bottom of the rectangular connector is the BODY.
The top of the connector is the Locking Bar.

The Locking Bar wedges the Flat Flex Cable in place.

I HOPE you unlocked the Keyboard's Flat Flex Cable, BEFORE pulling on the cable!

The white tabs of the Locking Bar are just barely visible on each side, of that Keyboard FFC.
They are eased up with the thumbnails.

The Locking Bar DOES NOT COME OFF of the Body, or one of them is broken. If so, I hear the motherboard will skip off of water, REAL GOOD!
Or can be used for a one-way Frisbee.

The FFC's that go over the Harddrive, have a different style of ZIF connector, on the USB board.

The Black rectangular tab Locking Bar, flips up. Break the hinge pins, or the Locking Bar hinge areas, and use the motherboard for a Frisbee.

The sharp corousel microwave ( Model R-308 JW) was working . There was a small roach nest in the lighted digital display and the display was hardly to read . This was the only issue. After...


Look into the connector and see the point of contact which is visible of the metal contacts. Now the carbon tracks must be on the side of the metal contacts of the connector. In this case it is possible that while you pulled out the flexible stip cord there is damage on the strip , can be that the carbon tracks were damaged and so it does not contact. if so use a carbon track pen to line the tracks so as to contact.
Reversing the cord will not do any damage as there will not be any contact.
finally make sure that the PCB( printed circuit board) was washed with petrol and brushed properly and then DRIED before the unit was powered or else it can damage the processor.
Check the connection leads that were removed and make sure that it went to the correct postion.
Sometimes the touch pads refuse to work once it is disturbed as it might get damaged in the carbon tracks within.

I have a yellow vertical line on the left part of the tv screen and the tv cuts of and light blinks 7 times and then pauses.


Hello,

All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken because the panel board contains high voltage.
Good luck in solving the problem...

HP will not cover the repair if guaranty is expired.

Video card on your laptop is integrated on motherboard, and the repairman must replace the whole motherboard to fix it.

I quote : "Only half the screen works the rest is justa grey colouring." that is more likely a problem with the ribbon cable, connecting LCD, or with LCD screen itself, in some case , as said by the repairman , it can be the video card.
if the repairman did not open and inspected the laptop LCD display , connector and cables, then the problem it is probably the ribbon cable or the LCD panel.
The technician mentioned the motherboard, because that is the most expensive repair service, so that he can cover his back.

Ask a quote to a different technician, see if this can give you different quotes for all possible faults.

The possibilities are:

1 Replace ribbon cable

2 Replace LCD display

3 Replace motherboard.

Kenmore electric built-in oven control panel beeping


We had the same problem. F7 error code and beeping. We turned off at the breaker- left it off for hours turned it back on and still f7 and beeping. We call repairman to come out and he removed the cover on control panel (3 screws on bottom of controll panel and it pops off). He unplugged the ribbon keypad connection - Cleaned the ends with a pencil eraser and said it is fixed and we would not have a problem.

Well, that was a fast way to spend 60 bucks but it has been a week and the oven has been great. No more beeps or error codes. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO IT YOURSELF!
