SOURCE: 3 beeps and lights flash when I push the start button

The door is not compltely closing. Make sure to push it in hard around the clasp areas. If yours has a light, the light should turn off and on as you open and close the door.

SOURCE: wont power on

The blinking red light means that the projection bulb ($150+/- online) needs to be replaced. The access door is located lower right side and replacing is staight forward. Sony has a problem with the Grand Wega that it is denying resposablity for. Check it out by Googling "MSNBC problems with Sony Grand Wega". I would like to get a class action suit going.

Why is my GBC Ultima laminator beeping?

It will beep when you turn it on to acknowledge power. It will also beep when it reaches ready condition. Your laminator has safety switches for the lower feed tray and upper heat shield. Any time the upper shield is lifted the power is shut off. When you lower it down the power is turned back on, causing a beep. The same is true for the lower feed table. When it is removed and then re installed the machine beeps. These are safety features so that the laminator doesn't turn on when you are reloading it or unjamming it. Check that the safety switches are fully engaged if you get unnecessary beeping.

I called Swingline and they told me to unplug the machine for 45 minutes to an hour, and then try again. (This resets the machine supposedly.) If there are additional problems, I was told, you may have to look into warranties, etc.

Why won't someone answer the ??s about the GBC Pinnacle 27 power light in the back works, but no power

Each heat shoe has a small thermal fuse, if either fuse is blown, the laminator keypanel will not operate. 99% fix everytime, just follow the wires from each heat shoe (right side of laminator) cover off. Ohm each set of wires and look for an open circuit. replace fuse (TCO) and it will work everytime......
