Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Power continually recycles

Power attempts to come up, but then drops and restarts.

Changed power cable. Measured voltage coming out of transformer box to ensure that it was +32VDC. Therefore I don't suspect the power adapter.

    I tried the # - 6 option with the same results.

    Power still cycled.

    Thanks for the good suggestion, tho.

    I'm open for more help. Thanks in advance!

I have a dcs 1565 alarm, replaced battery but no lights or anything on keypad. Power is on

Switch off mains power and remove one of the battery terminals. Re-apply mains power. Keypad should give 3 beeps. If not, check that your AC voltage powering the alarm panel is between 16VAC and 20VAC, at the alarm panel. If this voltage is not correct, the power supply (transformer), is blown and requires replacement. If the AC voltage is correct, then measure on the alarm panel, where it says BUS R (for Red = positive), and B (for Black = negative). Voltage should be between 13 to 13.85 VDC. If there is no DC voltage present, either the alarm panel is blown, or there is a short circuit on your DC cables. Switch off the transformer again, and remove all cables from the Aux terminals on the alarm panel, as well as BUS (R). Label these wires! Switch transformer on again. Measure between BUS R (for Red = positive), and B (for Black = negative). Voltage should be between 13 to 13.85 VDC. If voltage is not present, the alarm panel is blown and requires replacement. The alarm panel does not have fuses that can be replaced. If the DC voltage is correct, wire the BUS R cables back in. Measure between BUS R and BUS B again. There may be a slight drop in DC voltage (less than half a volt), this is normal. Then go to the keypad. The keypad has a small screw on its underside. Loosen this screw completely, then pivot the keypad face upwards, until it unclips. Measure between BUS R and BUS B on the keypad. Voltage should be well over 13VDC, and close to what you measured on alarm panel. If there is no voltage present, the cable from keypad to alarm panel is damaged and requires replacement or repair. If your voltage is correct, and keypad still has no power, the keypad is faulty and requires replacement.

quite possibly have defective panel, since you have replaced X,Y & buffers.

Power supply is not come to my audio system

You can check if there is power coming off the larger transformer or not when you power it up using a voltmeter. If there is no power in the on state check the fuses for burn marks to see if any are blown. If that is all good check to make sure the transformer internal heat fuse is in tact. You can do this by removing the transformer and then checking both side low voltage/high voltage sides for resistance. If it act like an open switch or bad connection you can attempt a repair on the transformer or replace it altogether.

I have two dimmer switches in the same box side by side. one goes to three pot lights, the other goes to a halogen track light. these have been working for 5 years. the lights have burnt out and been...

Sounds like the transformer in your track light. In the box where the green light is, the voltage is converted by a small transformer from 120v to 12v for the halogen lights. With the breaker off, try jumping out the dimmer going to the track light (disconnect the dimmer and connect the two loose wires from box together). With the breaker back on, if you have 120v power on the wires (black/white) going into the track light transformer (measured at the track light), and the green light won't come on, I'd say it's the track light transformer. You may have to replace the whole track if you can't get the transformer as a part.

Power to printer but printre will not turn on as there a reset

Are you using a volt/ohm meter to determine that the transformer is supplying power to the printer?

If so, what is the input (measured at the receptacle) to the transformer?
What is the output of the transformer and is it supplying the correct amount of voltage (output voltage requirement is normally found imprinted on the body of the transformer or in the technical specifications section of the printer's manual.

M-Audio BX5 - No Power

Don't bin! This should be a simple fault to rectify.

Fault finding technique as follows:
Trace mains voltage up to main transformer - there could be a standby transformer with relay in parallel. Check mains voltage all the way until it stops. If you have voltage up to main transformer, check that you have low voltage at the other end - if not main transformer at fault. If you don't have, then check to see if you do have a standby transformer - much smaller and usually on small circuit board near where power comes in to speakers. They are notorious for blowing on many audio systems as they are constantly connected to mains unlike most of the other components - power spikes kill them in particular.

D-Link DI-534 Starting up problems

Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

Ruud furnace won't light

first lets try the transformer. With your meter check for 24v on the output side. You cant check to ground on this, you have to check your meter with both wires to the transformer. If this is too complicated just try turning on the A/C, if it comes on, the transformer is good. The problem may be with the time delay relay. try by-passing it and then see what happens. since its an '87 when you say circuit board I assume its a board with all the low voltage wires attached to it right? Or does it have resistors, diodes, and relays molded into it?

Had power surge? When plugging in or turning on the unit I hear clicking. No picture.

Mine had the continuous blinking , and sometimes 2 blinks after trying to turn it on again. I was given the tv and after checking it out found two blown T3.15 amp glass fuses on the audio amp. T for time delay. I went to a recycle center and bought two complete chassis for my model kp53s25. I started changing the standby power supply first. Still did the same thing. I changed the high voltage board with the smaller transformer only and leaving the other larger high voltage transformer in the set. I just cut and spliced the single connecting high voltage line between the two high voltage transformers. Still had the same problem. I change the audio board and the set would work until I believe the audio board heated up or had an intermitant short and the tv would shut down. I replaced the full audio board with another and now the tv stays on and is working great. There seems to be a overheating problem with the sony audio board and i may buy a muffin fan to fit over the audio boards large heat sinks for added cooling in the rear right hand corner of the tv . Touching the heat sinks after tv has been on a while is very warm. Find a recycle center as I bought the parts I needed for 10 dollars for two complete chassis. I should have keep the color projection tubes.
