Blinking red light

The red light on the front of the machine blinks all the time, even though all the components are in place. I have tried removing them and replacing them with the machine on, so please don´t suggest that. Also, sometimes (even with the blinking light) the hot water comes out and sometimes it does not. I guess i should mention that at first the brew unit would not fit back into the machine, so I opened up the machine and turned the dial from the inside until the brew unit fit back into place. But the red light still kept on blinking.

    Red warning light continuously flashes. I have performed all the usual tasks that the instruction book says to do. When I power up the machine it makes all the “usual” sounds but when I press the brew button nothing happens and the red light continues to flash. I have primed, cleaned & changed out the water to no avail. All appears fine. Is there any way that the machine be reset ?

    Thanks, Ted Gawloski

Aha! The lose piece was indeed the problem. Getting it reattached was time consuming, however. I spent about 5-7 hours today trying to get everything apart and get the piece put back on.

In the future, I will be more gentle with this machine, especially when putting the brewing unit back in after rinsing it out. (Do rinse it out, by the way, about once a week. Otherwise the quality of coffee you get will gradually get worse and worse.)

The blinking light is a warning that something is not right.
-It will blink when the espresso waste basket is full. sometimes they stack up funny and it appears full and light blinks.
-second the beans don't always fall into the grinder from the hopper. They just need a gentle nudge
-Third it may be low on water.
-Four if you don't push the door closed on the fromt and ensure the spout where the coffee comes out is pushed in to the reciever inside the door the light will come on.
For me it has always been on of these four things.
Once I got the hang of the little nuisance everything works great. I love my machine and would buy another.
I have one or two espresso's a day,

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Won't Charge


Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.


One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

Red light blinks 3 times


Yes, there were and are known issues--"lamp door not properly closed" means that but something else.

What happens is door is warped from heat from lamp----with door off set will not function due to the safety switch----want to know if switch/door are the real problem?

Engage switch with something not metal and try to turn set on--if it and lamp come on do not look at lamp directly----do not operate with level bypassed and door removed as heat can warp the outer plate if no door.

If it comes on door is the problem---look at it edgewise---if warped a little the tab on back of door that engages the lever does not do its job.

If does not come on with lever engaged something else is wrong.

There was a recall that has ended regarding this---some were so bad they melted the lamp housing and even fused the front door of the lamp to the plastic around it.

Let me know what you find.

New lamp is placed in tv, but tv won't come on. Light in front of power button is blinking green, then blinks red. Not sure what the problem is


One question, why you decided to replace lamp in tv? Did tv showed red lamp light blinking?
Suggestion, make sure lamp cover has been placed back in its position after lamp replacement, lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to take out lamp.

Red "Paper" light stays on; printer will not print.


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Sony 42 in. lcd projection tv went out; just makes a sound.


Hello,

The TV should "blink" a number of times after it fails to start up (the red light blinks a certain number, pauses, blinks a certain number, pauses, etc.). This tell what is wrong with the TV. If the LAMP light is what is blinking, then the lamp needs to be replaced.

Most of the problems with this television are related to the lamp or lamp chamber. If the Television lamp is burned out or worn, or the lamp will not start, then it will not try to come on. There are circumstances where the LAMP light on the front of the TV will not come on, even though the lamp is out. I would try replacing the lamp (which is meant to be user-replaceable). The popping noise you heard could have been the lamp going out.

The lamp chamber door also activates a switch that tells the TV that the door is in place. This switch will sometimes go bad, showing a relatively small amount of resistance, but enough to fool the TV into thinking that the door has not been replaced, causing the TV to shutdown. Make sure that the lamp door is properly replaced if you do remove it. It is no longer available from Sony (too many warped doors from heat damage).

Lamp part number is available in the user manual, as well as instruction on changing it.

Hope this helps you...

Red light far right blinking continuosly (#26)


Hi jason,

The flashing red light indicates tha _something_ is not positioned correctly. Please check and see if you can find the sensor(s) that determine whether or not the components are correctly positioned.

You might also try unplugging it for 10-20 minutes to allow any electronic sensors to reset when you reconnect power.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Flashing red light


I think this sounds like my problem (need to replace the projector lamp). However, when I hit the "on" button, my SXRD 50" blinks green for about a minute then starts blinking red. Can you confirm the bulb solution? I was very pleased with this sight when my fan malfunctioned. I got the fan in a matter of day's from Sony and it fixed that problem.
