Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My tv wont turn on by power button or remote. white light keep blinking.


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. If the blinks continues, and non-stop, the fault should be with its main system control IC, and with the memory IC.

Power light blinking on sony dvd player


Repair of a portable unit with a power supply problem inside it is likely not to be economical and parts for these units are rarely available.

No magic wand for this issue--unless was a very expensive unit replace it--

Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.


Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

Tv wont turn on


The green light flashing indicates an error code, plasma tv's cannot be repaired at home without the right equipment and service manual, the fault could be power supply, processor or virtually anything, what technicians look for is the frequency of the blinking and the time between sets of blinks, this normally gives the tech a code that enables them to go to the right area, the only thing anyone can tell you is that the processor is probably ok, you really need to get a quote or count the blinking and the timing eg: "blink blink short pause blink), and repost the fault, then we can possibly tell you where to look...Phil

Ahi little ben,
This is a very easy fix,
the guitars for GH run by battieries and each guitar is fitted with a power saving mode.
When the guitar isnt used for a period of time, it shuts down, and blinks[the blinking lets you know when power saving mode is on]
What you need to do is press the, usually middle, button on the guitar, its not start or select, but its usually labeled 'link'
Should work.
Good luck, PS try through the fire and flames on expert ;)
