There is usually a small black toslink cover that blocks the port to stop crud getting in when not in use
it produces light when the TV is on so cover the port with the toslink plug/bung or a bit of black tape

    The red light from the port is the digital optical audio signal that goes to the decoder thru a spdif cable

What is the different between ARDF and SPDF in Ricoh


ARDF is a two pass system meaning it flips the paper to make a two sided original scan.
SPDF is single pass meaning there is a component in the feeder that reads the second side in a single pass, thus speeding the original scan, highly recomended if you do a lot of scans.

Red light flashing charger, says abnormal?


On some units a red light indicates that it is not ready. Sometimes you have to turn the unit off before it will charge or it may not be plugged in all the way. If it is an on board charger sometimes a bad connection will cause this. Invacare wheelchairs experience this sometimes. A lot of the time you can fix the problem by disconnecting the plugs and reconnecting them. This will re-seat the plug and make a good connection. Try this first.

Inverter red light


interesting problem, a red light generally indicates a fault and if the unit is not expensive than just buy a replacement, do you have knowledge of electronics? if so i might be able to help you if not buy a new one and try to get extended warranty, Inverters are notorious for faulting and without knolagege of the workings of the circuits you have no chance to fix it.
best regards Falco

The red alert light indicates that the filter needs to be cleaned. I have cleaned it but the light remains on. I have turned the unit of and on again but it doesn't change the light. The unit is...


Tunr the unit OFF & unplug it for 15 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn it on. The electronics should have reset and reverted back to the original factory settings & the red light should no longer illuminate, as long as the filter was reinstalled properly.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Both red lights flashing top and bottom at same time


Hello pbeckelctri,

I understand that the top and bottom light on your machine is blinking at the same time. The top light indicates that you need to empty the coffee drawer and the bottom light indicates that you need to descale the unit. However, if both are flashing aternativly there is something else wronge with the machine.

Please post back so I know exactly what is going on.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My playstation 3 shut off in the middle of a game and the power light is flashing red


You've got the wonderful read light of death. I would highly recommend you getting it fixed direct through Sony.

BUT if you wanna waste some time trying to fix it yourself you can follow this tutorial here.

YLOD is essentially the same so don't get confused by all the acronyms.

Red Light specifically indicates a hardware issue, in almost every case it's because your unit has overheated.

Try removing the power from the unit for 30 minutes then try powering it back on, if it powers back up then consider yourself very lucky. To prevent it from happening again I always run a mini-fan directly on my PS3, especially when playing a game.

If you get no joy, then call Sony direct @ 1-800-345-SONY to setup service.

Hope this info helps!

The top light of the two is flashing green/red back and forth very fast and the light on the bottom is a solid red. how do I fix this so that way it will work normally


The steady lower light indicates the unit needs a new toner cartridge, MLT-D108S. Did you previously see this light blinking or blinking rapidly? (Those indicate the toner being low.) Replace the cartridge and check for any other error lights. Turn off the machine and let it cool. Then open the front cover and pull the old toner cartridge. Open the package with the new cartridge, remove the packing tape and paper that protects the cartridge and gently shake it (avoid touching the blue or green parts of the OPC drum). Press the cartridge into the slot until it is fully seated. Close the front cover.

The green/red blinking power light is not one I'm seen before. The printer indicates a non-toner failure (open cover, no paper, LSU failure, etc.) with a steady red light.

Printer problems


All four lights flashing indicated a problem only a service center can repair.

Press the Go button and a new set of indicators will appear.

The yellow toner light only indicates a fuser unit failure.
The yellow drum light only indicates a laser unit failure.
The yellow toner light AND the red paper light indicates a main motor failure.
The red paper light only indicates a PCB failure (Printed Circuit Board).

The only thing you can do at this point is to actually UNPLUG the power cord for 24 hours and then retry or if that fails take it to a service center or better yet go pay the $89 for a new unit.



Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 red light


Repair Xbox 360 - 3 Red Lights 3-red-lights.jpg
James at joystiq fixed his own 360 that was flashing three red lights, which indicates an internal error.
If you have this problem try to fix it yourself before sending the unit in.
1) Remove your hard drive and/or memory units.
2) Run “Initial Setup” under the system blade.
3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.
4) Sync your controller and pop in a game.
It might save your xbox 360 a repair return.
