SOURCE: m y panasonic dmr48 says hello, wait then bye and

Failure of the startup circuit in the switchmode power supply; usually due to several components including IC1 (prefixed with STR - a 5-pin device). If the unit constantly displays HELLO, then BYE, shutting down, with no user operation available, then it is likely to be the IC on the 12V rail in the SMPS which is the main suspect.

Unfortunately, this cannot be repaired at user component level; it has to go to an authorised Panasonic appliance service centre for professional attention. (It may either involve the technician replacing various components, including the IC, or simply replacing the entire PSU PCB as a module to save time). It is safer for a qualified technician to undertake this type of repair, rather than the consumer/owner (that way the owner can be completely assured the job is done properly and will last beyond a day).

Your best bet is to submit the unit to your nearest repair centre for a quote, and a second opinion (on the exact nature of the problem(s) and the time/expense involved - including testing the rest of the unit to be sure nothing else is amiss), then you can make a positive decision afterwards as to what action you wish to take in this matter. It could be expensive whichever way you go but it is not unfixable, and if it is confined to the PSU board, you might be lucky in terms of the overall costs. Insist on up-to-date progress reports as required if you do go ahead with getting this fixed. Up to you.

You should not pay a repair bill without an assured, written guarantee signed by the technician that did the job, and which contains the company's official letterhead at the top.

Try to get this one fixed economically and to an agreed repair cost. If the workshop has an excellent reputation for customer satisfaction, you shouldn't be without your combo unit for very long. These are great combo units generally.

Hello Anne, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the issue could be related to the door switch or control board. However, first let's try recalling the error code by waking the unit and wait approximately five seconds. Then press and hold CANCEL and START/PAUSE key at the same time. Error code should display. With the error code I can help you determine the possible failures.

If the washer does not display an error code, reset the washer. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes, turn the unit on and redo the steps above.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you!

Open the front access panel or the lid and find the technician diagnostic sheet. It will tell you how to access automatic diagnostic mode. Let it run through than it will give an error code in the book it will tell you what to do. If you have anymore questions please feel free to comment me.

F24 error code

Hello there
  1. Turn the oven off and wait three minutes before turning it on again if "F -24" or "F-25" is displayed. These error codes mean the keys on the control panel were pushed or touched for longer than 60 seconds. Leaning against the oven or hanging objects in front of the controls can cause these error codes to appear.
  2. 3 Press the "Oven Off" key to clear the display and reset the oven if an "F" followed by two numbers is shown on the display. Wait three minutes, and turn the oven on. This type of error code indicates a problem with the signal received by the electronic control board.
  3. 4 Write the error code down if an error code displays more than once. Thermador recommends calling a service technician if an error code reappears.

It is not yet the end for your machine. The error codes refers to a faulty hard drive. You'll need a new hard drive for replacement and that will fix the problem.

Should you have any other questions just leave a message.

All the best!
