I have a Panasonic massage lounger. The preset functions don't work well. The massage turned off few seconds after it starts and message says "The massage is ending", but manual functions work well.

SOURCE: Presets stopped working

I have repaired a few of these receivers in the past few years and have found several with microprocessor issues and some with a lot of heat stressed solder connections on the main amplifiers board around the voltage regulators.

The problem you are having is similar to problems the others I have repaired were having.

There is nothing you can, as an end user, do beyond a hard reset of the microprocessor by unplugging the unit from the wall and wait about an hour or 2 before you plug it back in.

By resetting the microprocessor you can at least see if the problem is a minor one or not. most likely it is an electronic problem that will take some good troubleshooting skills.

The bigger problem you face with this particular unit is that RCA no longer supplies parts for the audio equipment they sell.

Once the supply of what they have in stock is gone, thats it, no more parts at all for RCA audio. That supply has not been replenished in around a year.

All of the RCA audio equipment sold now is exchange only if it is under warranty.

I know this because I work at an authorized RCA repair center and I am the audio tech. I have not repaired an RCA audio unit under warranty in about a year because of that.

I have fixed 3 or 4 of the same unit you have, but not under warranty.

If you or somebody you know has very good soldering skills you can try reflowing the solder connections on the main board and even reflowing the microprocessor. It could solve your problem, but not advisable unless you are very good with a soldering iron and have done this sort of thing before.

I am sorry for this rather bad news, but it is true. I have been repairing audio equipment for over 17 years and am very familiar with RCA products.

If I can be of any further help please let me know.

SOURCE: Panasonic NN-H264SF Microwave oven starts with a chirp

No I dont think so, check that the wheels on the rotating ring are not seized up and dragging. These will make a chirp type sound as it starts to rotate or even when it finally comes to rest.

Please rate our help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Massage starts then stops after 10 seconds


I suggest that you contact Panasonic directly and ask them how you could fix this. Also, you can get in touch with the store you got it from and possibly ask for a new massage chair.

THE MODEL IS EP578.ROLLERS DONT MOVE BUT MOTOR IS FUNCTIONING.LIGHTS IN THE REMOTE ARE BLINKING ALL TOGETHER THEN THE MACHINE STOPS.


I found with my Panasonic EP578 that, if the lower photo sensor limit switch gets too dusty, the massage mechanism will travel downwards past the normal range of motion and the electronics will time out because the unit did not get a down limit sensor signal & reverse direction and proceed back to the upper limit switch in time. With the device unplugged, I simply removed the grommet screws and opened the fabric backing. Then I removed the units cover and Then blew out dusty photo sensors with compressed air. Then I swapped the red and green, 2-pin mag clutch coil connector plugs so that when I switched the unit on again I could make the unit travel back up to about, the scapular position. The reason that this is possible is that when you first start a normally working machine, the first thing that happens after the motor turns on, is that the motor clutch for the mechanism that provides the neck and vertebral massage balls, also energizes. I figured that I could get the voltage at that connector to energize the rolling clutch to get the unit back up again (as you can't move it by hand). Then I turned the unit off (while stile in cycle) and the swapped the mag-clutch coil connectors back to their original position. Re-starting the machine causes the moving massage mechanism to go through it's Power On Routine which realigns everything to it's 'Home' position and ready to run a fully functioning cycle. Remember to unplug the machine when working on it and keep all fingers, necktie, hair, jewelry from moving mechanism when it's moving to avoid damage to the machine and bodily harm to yourself!

System error: zoom message with Panasonic Lumix FS15 camera


I had the same problem, i switched the camera on in capture mode and zoomed in and applied a little pressure to the lens which made a slight click but retracted and has worked fine since. I may of just been lucky but the camera is fully functional again, could be worth a try.
