Same problem here. All I can do to fix it is to turn the power OFF then ON using the switch on the sub-woofer. The problem is occurring more frequently with time. :(

I have had a similar problem that happens every time the power goes out or a circuit is broken. The Fuse is good on the unit but when powered up the control unit flashes once and then does nothing.

*Solution: Under the control unit there is a small hole. Use a paper clip to push into the hole. Ensure the base unit ((subwoofer)) is plugged in but turned off. While holding the pin in; turn the base unit on. The power light should turn red and hold the glow. The control unit is now back to it's original settings (( I think it resets the CPU?)) Push the red button on the control unit and your speakers should fire up again, good as new.

**Note: I have a slightly older model (AMR Z5450 Speaker System) - you may not have the paper clip option. Also, I have communicated with Logitech a couple of times and they did not tell me about this solution. I found it by trial and error.

**Official suggestions from Logitech: When I spoke to Logitech they recommended the following

~ If you are using a surge protector, bypass the surge protector and plug in the speaker directly to the wall.

~reset the unit and display the firmware revision
1. Put the Control Pod in 'standby'
2. Press and hold the 'input' and 'settings' buttons simultaneously for approximately 5 seconds.

Denon AVR-1908 won't power on


Are you getting a standby light at all? Is it flashing? Do you here a click when you plug the unit in? If the answer is no to all of these then you blew a fuse. If you do have soome sort of standby light, then your set is in protect mode. More than likely for a blown channel. If no lights, but you ar egetting a click, you could have a bad transformer. Use a DVM and see if it is open or not. Good luck

My Olevia 27in. LCD Television does not turn on


Well, at least the standby 5vdc circuit is still working but the problem can be in the controller board is not sending the signal to turn on the main power supply sections, or the power supply itself is bad. Look at the power supply first for burnt parts, bad capacitors.

I have a NEC mt1055 and the unit just had new bulb put in here and it has the power and standby light come on and the fan doesn't turn on here and the standby light is yellow and status is red


The NEC’s work on a reducing time basis, they count the hours that they have been operational and refer to this as the life of the bulb – 1600 hours. When the 1600 hours has been reached the projector shuts itself down into standby mode never to be restarted even after changing the bulb / filters. This is because the unit needs to be reset, which needs to be done as follows (not included in any of the bulb replacement instructions):-
  • Plug Projector in so it is in standby mode – Orange light lit, Red status light lit (not flashing)
  • Using the remote control, hold down the power off button for 30-45 seconds
  • This will reset the status button, removing the red light
  • Power up the projector and select Menu
  • Select Projector Options
  • Select Set-up – a number of tabs will appear called pages
  • Arrow across the pages (MT850 is Page 5) until an option called “RESET LAMP HOURS” is shown
  • Move onto this option and press enter on the projector itself, confirm that you want to reset the counter
  • Projector is now back to life

This works for all NEC projectors, the page number may be different though where the “RESET LAMP HOURS” option resides.

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
