Fault codes on this unit are usually 1 thru 8, or FC_1 thru FC_8.
You will need a usable battery installed for the control panel to operate. If you still get 9999 with a good battery, you will need to test it with a known good control panel, which may be the problem.

SOURCE: Hello,

These units are equipped with a low/no oil shutdown. When you hold the switch over to start it, it overrides the shutdown interlock until the unit builds oil pressure in the engine. When you release the switch to the run position the interlock is engaged. Ensure there is sufficient oil in the crankcase, check the wiring from the oil pressure switch to the ignition cutout-(it may have been pulled off or damaged). If that checks out, then either jump across the 2 wires at the oil sending unit or disconnect the harness from the sending unit to test to see if the sending unit is bad. Try both unless you know the switch is normally open or normally closed. Replace the sending unit if needed.

All i have is white screen


No, replacing the battery will have no effect. Even if the battery was dead and even removed from the unit, plugging the unit into a charger or wall adapter effectively bypasses the battery. You will see that the problem will remain. A white screen can be caused by several things:
1. A defective LCD display.
2. A boot-up issue.
3. A partially disconnected LCD display where the backlight is still connected, lighting up just the background.

Please see this site for more info on LCD & boot-up issues.

My braun 6550 model was recharged but no display seen any more. The shaver has been used for more than 7-8 years. But this time I use it when it is low battery & charging at the same time. I try to...


This shaver model was very popular back in the 1990's. They aren't meant to last more than 10 years with regular use. They can be reconditioned, as replacement parts are available, but it's probably not worth the trouble. You've put your shaver to good use--it's time for a new one. You can offer up your shaver on eBay for parts as-is and actually make a little $$ (some people can make use of the parts, for those who repair these things). I'd recommend getting an 8000 series model. They are very well made and still quite a lot cheaper than the 9000 (Pulsonic) series.

Additional information is required for us to assist. Can you better describe what you mean by "poor image"? Are the colors separated? Is the picture out of focus? Are the colors wrong?

My 2008 gsxr 600 that i bought 2 days ago is running off of battery only not recharging while running. bike shuts down when battery is dead can push start but soon dies again also shows SD on the display...


Its nothing to do with the damper
The battery may not be accepting charge due to its age or condition (although as u can bump it soon after it sounds ok). Check this out with a charger & meter
There may be a bad or dirty connection somewhere between the alternator & regulator/rectifier or from there to the battery
It could also be a defective alternator winding or regulator/rectifier unit

Hi,
F-9 error code indicates a defective control board, inverter or line voltage too high. f the microwave runs for about 7 seconds with a ticking sound..then stops and shows "F-9", it is the magnetron that has failed. The fact that the unit starts and runs with the TICKING SOUND means the control board is sending signal to inverter board and the inverter board is sending signal to magnetron. Magnetron is covered by full 5 year warranty, inverter board is only 3 years.

E4 error code


I called Uniden about the same problem.  They say it is a code that means it is defective base unit.  I had purchased it within one year and they will gladly send me a new one.  I don't know if they will offer anything beyond the one year mark. 

They say it was a spike in the power lines that causes this error.
