TV will not power on Red light on front flashing red, no picture or sound. Tried unplugging it for awhile and then plugged it back in, still flashing red. Removed back cover nothing appears damaged

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Both paper jam and ink replacement lights are flashing.

Sounds like print cartridge collided with paper. Open both covers. Try to remove paper carefully without damaging print cartridge. you may need to remove print cartridges to get paper out. Then close every thing without print cartridge in. Reopen covers reinstall print cartridge/s, hopefully, everything returns to normal. It will probably say something about going through the process of realignment.

How do i set code for paragon safe

1. Remove the key plate cover, insert the key into the keypad and open the door.
2. Remove the battery cover plate located on the inside of the door.
3. Install 4 AA batteries provided and replace the battery cover.
: If both the red and green lights are on while the safe is open, this indicates that the batteries are low and need
to be changed.

1. With the door open, locate the red button on the back of the door near the hinge.
2. Press the red button and listen for the beep.
3. Immediately enter your new passcode (3-6 digits long)
4. Immediately after entering your new passcode, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your new user passcode is now stored.
This safe stores up to 2 passcodes (a user code and a manager code). Entering a third code will erase the
first passcode entered.

1. Open your safe with the passcode you wish to change and leave the door ajar.
2. Press the "0" button on the keypad twice. Press the red button, listen for a beep and then enter your new user passcode.
New user passcodes may be 3-6 digits long.
3. Immediately after entering your new code, press the "A" or "B" button on the keypad. Your user code is now changed.
1. Input your code and then press the "B" button, the green light will turn on.
2. Turn the knob clockwise within 5 seconds to open the door.
3. Each key pressed will be accompanied by a buzzer and a yellow flashing light. If the entered code is invalid the yellow light will
flash and the buzzer will quickly sound, this indicates the code needs to be re-entered.

: Entering the incorrect passcode 3 times will lock the system for 20 seconds.

Light came on tonight driving home from work,is it safe to drive car?any remedies?thankyou

if the check engine light is flashing , yes you need to stop driving it and take it to a shop soon, this means theres a damaging problem, but if the light is staying on and is red it a minor problem, but still need to have the code read by a scanner.

Me too

1.Not an expert with natural gas furnaces.
2.Statements below are from my own personal experience, and knowledge from.

The red blinking light you see is on a computer control board. The flashes of the red light represent a type of code. Think of it as a Morse Code, if you will.

For example: Red light blinks three times rapidly, pause, then blinks one more time. This code represents a particular fault. (Fault = Problem)

There is a sticker, with a chart of codes listed for this red light. It is usually placed very near the red light.

A gas furnace should be repaired by a competent HVAC technician. This is not a device that should be attended to, by those who are not trained.
An HVAC technician will know where to look, what parts are needed, and if the gas furnace is safe enough to put back on line. (Safe enough to use)

Wont turn on

Hi there,

Your TV's safety circuit or programming may has caused your system to shut down to prevent further damage. You may also want to check the lamp for your tv if it is secure or loose or covering has damage and may need replacing. If that checks out OK, I am unsure if there is a rest button on the WEGA but if it does not you can reset it by unplugging the device for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Epson 2400 scanner red light flashing

Normally any new scanner fresh from the factory has a 'lock' which prevents damages due to transportation. Ensure it is unlocked.

Scanner not responding to preview scan

Try this as a last ditch effort. Remove the software. Reboot the computer and come off line. Disable the Anti Virus program. Now install the soft ware. Then try. If the red light still flashes then assume it is new scanner time.
