    I have the same problem like Kumba. Buttons were works normally and I never had touch them often so I don't know how they can't work just like because of bad quality of buttons. In the beggining of this problem was message every 10 seconds "Monitor Adjustment" it was very anoying. Now, even if don't touch the monitor controls the menu switches on and off as it wishes just like that, but sometimes works ok.

I figure it out that best solution for the problem is to press and hold button Monitor adjustment with same tape or stuck it with piece of wood. Message never appear it again!

Problem is made by switches which are bad quality, you have to take your monitor to the nearest samsung service center or if you want you can change this switches by yourself. You can find them in conrad stores named phap3363 and 700310 - 62.

Why are lights flashing but machine not working?

It can be a number of things. The buttons need cleaning, a bad solder joint or broken wire, a faulty IC on the control circuit board, the circuit board with the buttons could be loose and not making correct contact, etc.

Only way to know is take it apart. You will need a good flashlight and a long straight screwdriver to get to some of the clips. It is NOT an easy task. Look for tutorials on youtube, etc.

The power will turn it on buit not off and the channel button will not turn the channel

When you turn it on, are you using the remote control or the power button on the side of the unit?
When pressing any buttons on the unit, be it the power from the channel selectors, you should hear a 'click' from the actual button on the printed circuit board inside the unit.
If you are not hearing this 'click' the plastic mounts holding the printed circuit board in place may have become dislodged from its position. You can rectify this but it will involve removing the back of the unit to access where you need to get too.
If you are hearing this 'click' and still nothing is happening, it's possible the buttons have become faulty and you may need to either replace the buttons or the entire printed circuit board that holds the buttons.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

CLick start/run then type in dxdiag. Go to the display tab and click test dirext3d. There should be an 3d cube that comes up and spins around. After the cube leave cancel everything else and close dxdiag, Your problem should be solved for a pretty long time. If it happens again just follow the steps again.

Just won't work!!

Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

I would also advise to check the door switch as well. make sure the wires are connected to the switch and it is working. replace if found to be faulty.

Check the control as well. if the control is malfunctioning as you stated, this will be the logical solution here. replace the control board.

Computer shuts down but does not turn off

Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.
  • Open control panel > open the system control panel
  • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
  • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
  • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
  • click ok
  • click ok

  • Open control panel > open power options
  • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
  • in the power buttons section,
  • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
  • click ok
Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.
