If you have tunes the antenna with an external SWR bridge, you should be fine. The SWR circuit in the radio is probably not adjusted properly and flashing with modulation peaks.

Why does the power light keep blinking


The blinking light is wrongfully indicating that there is not enough water in the tank. The sensor is a small magnet that is floating in a compartment at the bottom of the water tank. (The black square in the corner) You shold be able to see it. Check if it is stuck at the bottom and if it is floating in its chamber. If that is OK, the sensor inside the coffee maker that is reading the magnet might either have come faulty or dispaced (due to a shock?). That would need a disasembly of the coffee maker.

Swr light come on when i key it up


you must check your radio for low SWR.get it down below 2.1 and you should be ok.if you already have a low SWR then you may want to take it to a tech and let them fine tune it.

My cobra 18 wx st comes on and goes tru all channels but has no noise at all coming thru it. none of the signal strength lights come on or anything. its brand new.


Sounds like a antenna issue. Make sure coax is in good order.and antenna is connected properly. You might have to get a "swr" meter to put in line between radio and antenna to make sure antenna is "tuned" to were the radio is operating. Radio shack sells a ok low budget swr/power meter.

TV turns off but standby still blinking


Hello
Blinking of standby light in Sony sets are fault indications. Just count the number of blinks occur at a time, after switch OFF and switch ON your TV with its FRONT PANEL POWER CONTRO SWITCH. Make this test at least three times, and count the number of blinks keenly and inform me though Fixya. It will help me a great to rach to the faulty section, or even to the exact fault point sometimes. OK.

when you talk. Any SWR is fine as long as it is below a two(2) or
three(3). If you need any further, let me know!

My antenna light stays on even after I have realeased the mike


Try checking the SWR's on channel 1, 20, and 40. The SWR's will change from the low channels to the mid channels to the high channels. The key is to make sure that the SWR's are around 1 or less at all three points. If the light goes out when checking one of them, then the problem is most likely the SWR's. If the light stays on when checking these channels, the issue might still be the SWR's but I would look at the grounding on the antennas. When holding the talk button on the mic and switching from calibrate to swr, can give a false reading. This is due to the calibrate circuit remaining open until you release the talk button. Take the SWR reading by releasing the Talk button on the mic after calibrating then pressing the talk button again after switching back to SWR. This will be the most accurate reading. From everything you described, I would be looking for a grounding problem with the antennas or coax, possibly even a rub though on the coax somewhere in the dash.

Red ant light


The red light always comes on while mic is keyed. It is designed to do that. It will blink on and off while mic is keyed if there is a SWR problem. This is explaned in operaters manual.

Green Power light blinks but no picture or sound with a chirping noise


That chirp is your ballast trying to fire the lamp. Sounds to me like you need a new lamp. The model should be TY-LA1000. Keep in mind though that the ballast could also be faulty, but 85% of the time it's a lamp. Pull the cover off the unit and remove the lamp. More often than not, when the lamp goes it'll actually break and be obvious.
