I have just gotten this error myself. I beleive the clicking sound is the mechcanism for letting the flash pop up. I have temporarily over come this by manually lifting the flash or selecting a mode that doesn't require the flash. The cause on my own is due to a piece of dirt but I have not done anything with it yet. Hope this gives a temporary respite.

I cannot change the cartridges as yhe holder seems to be stuck


Welcome to FixYa!

Note: When removing and inserting back the print cartridges, you need to use a small amount of force because of its safety locks. Just be careful not use excessive force, it might damage your printer.

If your printer has Two Cartridge System with no latches, here's a proper way to remove and insert the print cartridge. Please refer to the image below.

1. Press down the tip of the print cartridge and pull it away. You will hear a "click/tick" sound while pressing it downwards.
2. Make sure to remove the protective cover of the print cartridge.
3. Slide in the new print cartridge in its holder.
4. Lock it by doing the figure #4 in the picture below. You will hear a "click/tick" sound which indicates that it is locked.

I have a Canon Rebel. When I try to take pictures the flash "hood" or something automatically pops up but somehow the light doesn't flash and all I hear are 3 clicks. Then the screen says error...


Aprilm,

Error 5 is a flash error. What sounds like it happening is the mechanical part of the flash is working allowing for the pop-up, but the camera thinks there is an external flash present. A repair shop should be able to address the issue. Usually it's a problem with the micro switches "inside" the flash shoe.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Thank you.

Hi,
TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.
Hope these info will help you.

Have sound no picture lamp does not appear to be bad when looking at it yellow light blinks the shuts off tv then tries to start and can hear sound but no picture it will keep doing this till i turn the tv...


listen for the colorwheel noise
you'll recall hearing it "wind up" as the tv came on
many of these will go bad and then it will never fire the lamp because the colorwheel doesn't get up to speed

if you don't hear it, suspect the wheel, its hard to get since toshiba never had it as a seperate part

if you do hear it, its probably a bad lamp driver, but unlikely

let the tv go and go, it will try like 7 or 8 times and then eventually spit out an error. your user manual has the error codes, it will tell you if its the colorwheel i belive.

let me know if you need further assistance

No picture or sound


This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems, to activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source)
