At one of the sites, it is said that this error means leakage. But there is no more information about it. Check or at the bottom of the dishwasher there is no water. Maybe you are lucky.

SOURCE: hi, samsung blu-ray player bd-d6500

There is no current procedure for unlocking the Blue-ray and it is probably not necessary because over 80% of released disks are region free anyway. (Just don't ever buy the other 20% and they will get the message soon enough!)
To change the DVD from region 2 (your current location) to region 9 (region free) follow these steps using the remote control.
1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.
2. Switch the player off and then back on. This is necessary to clean-boot the firmware.
3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player stops doing anything.
4. Press the eject button to open the tray. (The button is between the "Power" and "TV Power" buttons at the top of the controller.)
5. Press the eject button to close the tray.
6. Wait while the player searches for a disk.
7. As soon as the "No Disk" message appears at the top left corner do the following.
8. Press the REPEAT button - just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller.
9. Enter 7 6 8 8 4 on the number pad.
10. The region code "4" should appear at the top left corner of the screen.
11. Enter a "9" to make the player region free. (Enter a region code if you want to lock the player to another region for some obscure or perverse reason.)
12. Power down and power up again.
13. Play a foreign DVD to verify the change.
Now the tricky bits. This process is timing dependent.
Firstly, you must start entering the code just after the "No Disk" message is shown and before the message disappears. If you jump the gun or miss the boat (isn't English great!) it won't work.
Secondly, the REPEAT key is part of the code. All six keys must be entered smoothly as "REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4". The entry gets timed out so you can't stop in the middle and restart. Don't bash away like crazy, just do it smoothly and briskly.
If you don't see the "4" the first time, don't worry. Just repeat the process. It took me about a dozen tries before I got it to work.
I can't guarantee that this player does not have a region change counter so I would be a bit careful about changing regions back and forth. I also can't guarantee that this will work with all released firmware. Samsung seems to take this crazy region bastardry very seriously for some reason.
For people from other parts of the world, all region codes are as follows
1 - 2 9 3 3 4
2 - 5 7 5 3 8
3 - 5 6 7 3 2
4 - 7 6 8 8 4
5 - 5 3 8 1 4
6 - 2 4 4 6 2

If you bought your player in the USA or Canada there might be no way to change the region in these countries as the only Samsung BluRay players we've ever heard about being able to be unlocked (and ONLY for DVD region free playback) were sold in places like Australia and maybe Europe.
Hope this was helpful to you. Goosluck danteks Elect_comp

SOURCE: My Samsung Dishwasher gives me a error code F3 can you help me

F3 indicates a heating fault.

Unless you are a qualified repair engineer I'd get a professional to look at it. Water and electricity and "do it yourself electricians" don't mix.

Error code E3 on Samsung DMS500TRW dishwasher

3E error in Samsung dishwashers normally relates to high temperature error. This means the dishwasher is detecting over 80deg C water temperature. However if it is 5E that means drain error. If your dishwasher is draining correctly then please check the error again.

Take the water hose off the shut off valve under the sink. If you can't completely shut off the water, the rubber washer has broken off small pieces that will travel up the hose. Check for a partial blockage.

My dishwasher gives a F3 code and does not clean,rinse or dry. ADP6947 PC. What does F3 means - no indicater for e.g salt etc


Thanks for using FixYa. F3 stands for a faulty oven sensor. Unplug the oven, then replace the sensor. Should be back to normal. The sensor is inside the oven. When you pull on the sensor, you'll get to a male/female quick connector. When you unplug it, be careful not to lose the other end behind the oven wall.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.
