Front display panel has power, but won't open

Firstly i have no remote as it was lost before handed down to me.. will be trying to aquire one via ebay or other source. It was a home installation and am yet to disassemble to check wire connections etc. (was hoping to avoid removing entire front coconsole.. again) the main confusion is that the front display has power (has constant display cycle), memory for clock is fine, AND the reset button is functional. however the display change and open button fail to work... approximately 6 months prior to installation the unit was powered at a local strathfield and all buttons were working any help would be greatly appreciated

Remote will not turn the TV on

Hi Terry,
It is a common problem with remote controls. The power key is used very much and the conductive rubber pad underneath wears out. If you can, open the hand set and clean the under side of the keys with cotton and solvent (after shave solution will do). It will bring back the action. At least for some time. If it does not work, go for new remote control.

Samsung washing machine wf7604naw door is stuck and the lock sign won't go away- how do i force the door to open- my cloths are locked inside

It can be the door lock servo which is a ****** to reach or tamper with as it's a sealed unit, I sorted mine by draining via the filter port at the bottom right front behind the rectangular front panel ( this will normally fill a small saucepan half way when machine is level which is the best way to drain although you will be using a cellulose sponge to soak the water from the floor rather than directly into the pan) then tilting from the front 45 degrees or more backwards. This all being done with power off and water inlet pipe disconnected as this can and will snap readily. Having rested back down to a level try the door again and smile.

Need to recover data from DirecTV R15 DVR receiver hard drive

First, sorry for the delay in respoding to your post. I did notice that you had a prior question about the Power Supply on an R15 DVR. Does the unit have a manufacture code of 500(found on the right hand front Flip Door of the DVR)? If so, I might be able to help you in repairing the Power Supply. As far as I know, getting your DVR up and running again is the only way to watch your previously recorded programs. As far as retreiving programs from your old Hard Drive via other methods, I probably won't be able to help you there. When I had both of my identical DVR 15 500's apart for a parts swap to diagnos a failed Phototransistor(infra-red sensor for the remote control), I also tried to swap out the Hard Drives. This is what I found: When you swap a Hard Drive into another DVR, it won't play any of the programs previously recorded. However, if you record new programs on the swapped Hard Drive then they will be playable on this current setup. Now, if you swap the Hard Drive back to the original DVR it came out of, the programs will once again be accessible except for any that you might have recorded while the Hard Drive was in the other DVR. So, in conclusion, when programs are recorded on a particular DVR, it is encoded electronically to play back only in that DVR via communication from the Motherboard and the Hard Drive. I know, it sucks, but that is why I was asking if you are pretty sure the Power Supply is at fault. If so, I received info from this forum on how to fix the issue. Also, if the attempt fails, Ebay has some previously owned DVR's for sale and maybe you can get one for spare parts. Remember, the Power Board and Front Display Control Panel are the only interchangeable parts IF you want to view the programs on your DVR's Hard Drive. Let me know what your DVR does when you plug it in. That will go far in further diagnostics of your DVR.

Sony rdr-hx720 tray won't open and says traylocked?

The disc tray does not open and you cannot remove the disc after you press Z (open/close). ,Turn off the recorder. Once the clock appears in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead. (If the recorder does not turn off or if the clock does not appear in the front panel display, disconnect the mains lead anyway.) Connect the mains lead again while pressing down A on the recorder, and release the button when the disc tray opens. Then, keep [/1 on the recorder pressed for about ten seconds until "WELCOME" appears in the front panel display

It won;t power up at all, clothes... Solve It won;t power up at all, clothes are locked inside, no lights on the panel. Plug in is working, I... (More) It won;t power up at all, clothes are locked inside,...

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Cannot trasfer pics from Canon Powershot A540 to computer.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as ZoomBrowser or Picasa.

No control of WS-65511

The following solution has been posted in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."
