Open your manual to page 1-30. Follow the illustration shown. "F_Panel". What is missing from the manual is the wire colors coming from your case. These colors do vary from case to case. If your lucky the case's wires to the MB will include a two pin jumper and they will be marked as such. (HD_LED, RESET, ECT). Most Asus MB's provide you with a F_Panel stand off. Like the picture provided;

If you notice in the pic above you'll find a solid white wire color. This wire is to be connected to the - negative side of the F_Panel MB or jumper block. Other wire colors such as solid blue, light blue, light green and red are commonly connected as positive +. The four pin internal speaker uses black as its - negative and usually red for positive.

F6E1 - SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR

The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Possible Causes/Procedure

- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check that the power cord terminals are connected at the right position to the RFI filter (white-Neutral/ black-Line).
- Check that the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.
- Check that ground switches are fitted correctly, and are not broken and the green ground wires are connected correctly.
- Make sure that both ground switches are not broken or scratched.
- Make sure that all the ground harnesses (green wires) are connected correctly, and are not broken or with wires detached.
- Make sure that all wire harness connections from the CCU (MI3 cavity), main Motor, and MCU are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Check for continuity from the MCU connector wires to CCU (MI3 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle. See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and wait for 15 seconds.

Connect mediacom cable to my apex...all the cables are hooked up correctly but it just says no signal.


What is the mediacom connected to? If the antenna connector, (usually screw-on type F) then set it to TV. Does Mediacom need to have a box between the cable and the TV? Sometimes cable systems do not use standard television signals, and a box is required to display on a TV.
If mediacom has a box, and cables are connected to (commonly red, white, and yellow) RCA connectors, then AV 1 or 2, depending on which connectors you plugged them into on the TV.

Kenmore error codes


Unfortunately this is a bad error code. Most times it is either the control panel or the main control unit. Both are expensive and there is no way to determine which has failed with out replacing them.
Sorry for the bad news.
Here is what the tech sheet has to say about the error code;
SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR
Possible Causes/Procedure
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check that the power cord terminals are connected at the right position to the RFI filter
(white-Neutral/ black-Line).
- Check the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.
- Check that ground switches are fitted correctly, and are not broken and the green
ground wires are connected correctly.
- Check both ground switches are not broken or have not scratch on them.
- Check that all the ground harnesses (green wires) are connected correctly and are not
broken or wires became detached.
- Check all wire harness connections from the CCU (MI3 cavity), main Motor and MCU are
not broken or wires detached and connector internal pins are visible.
- Check for continuity from the MCU connector wires to CCU (MI3 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the unit operation by running a test cycle.

You're trying to use a proprietary part on a different computer.

The plug connector you have was made for a 8(?) contact pin plug connector. (Usually 1 pin is missing, for a 'Key' pin)

The Front Panel header on the mobo you're trying to use it on, has a 10-pin Front Panel header. (Again, 1 pin missing for a Key pin)

You need to separate those individual connectors.
Yeah, I know.

This involves trying to slice/saw them out, and there's Nothing dangerous about that! (Sarcasm)

Moving on............

The connectors in that female plug are female metal terminal connectors. Individual connectors. Example,

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/28-9420&utm_medium=Affiliate&ref=cj&utm_campaign=CommissionJunction&utm_source=CommissionJunction

The opening in the front, of course goes over the contact pin, in the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
The back of the connector, shown at the top; is crimped around the insulation of the wire.

The barrel shaped connector slides down into the individual socket hole, in the plug connector.

Looking at the Molex connector, observe the two 'Tangs' that stick out on either side. -> /

When the Molex connector is inserted into the plug connector's socket hole, the Tangs press against the sides of the connector.
When the Molex connector is at the correct depth, in the plug connector socket hole, the Tangs 'pop' out.

They pop out in small depressions, in the sides of the socket hole.
See how they angle towards the back?

If you slide the correct diameter of needle, down in the Front of the plug connector, (And in socket hole), you can depress one tang at a time.

Slides into the socket hole, right next to the Molex connector, and pushes down on the Tang.

Once depressed by the needle, lift up on THAT side a little.
Keeps the tang in a correct position.
Then insert the needle on the other side, and depress that Tang.
You can now remove wire and connector.

Takes a little practice on the first one. Second one goes a little faster, then you're on your way. Just sounds difficult explained so detailed.

With the individual wires, and their connectors; you can plug each wire in where you want. Connect to the contact pin in the Front Panel header, that you wish.

Trying to cut that connector apart, and leave individual amounts of plug for insulation; may prove unfruitful.
Most of the time the material in-between two of those Molex connectors, is very thin.

Maybe one connector will come away with enough material, maybe not. Most will not.

Also you risk slicing your fingers.

Or you could find a plug connector that fits that group of 7-pins, and transpose the wires over to it.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Main wires being;
Power On switch wires
Power On LED light wires
HarDDrive activity LED light wires
Reset switch wires, IF used

Since you have the manual, out of curiosity are pins 2 and 4 Power On LED?
1 and 3 are HarDDrive activity LED?
5 and 7 are Reset switch?

For additional questions please post back in Comment.

Hi everybody! This is a Xerox c2636 copier. As you can see in the video, all cables seem to be plugged in correctly. The control panel and the display don't power up, but I can hear the fan in this mo


Most likely you have a bad screen panel. Reconnect all connectors to your main board. Also check the connector to your panel. Hope this helps

I need to find out where the 3 little plugs go that are connected to the power button theres a blue/white black/white red/white plugs comming from it going to the motherboard


Sometime these connectors from the desktop case front panel have labels indentifing what each connector/plug is for. From your description they could be a reset switch or LED indicators for hard disk or power light etc.
If the plugs are not labeled then trace the wires back to the front panel to identify what they are attached to.
When you connect the LED indicators to the motherboard and it does not light up when they suppose to, then turn the plug around 180 degrees.
The LED are polarity sensitive ie they only light up if the + and - leads are connected to the motherboard correctly.

How to connect the usb front panel


There are connectors on the motherboard for the usb connectors that go to the front panel. Look at you manual and connect the connectors correctly. Each connector has 4 wires, with a red(+5volts) and black on each end. Make sure plug these in correctly on the motherboard connectors since a backward connection will burn up your usb device when it's plugged into the usb port. Been there done that! It should say something like this in the manual, VCC, USB1-, USB1+, GND.

Where would I look for the usb port


Most Compaqs (in general all brands) have USB ports on both the front and rear of the case. The rear connectors are found where all the other I/O connections are located. They are flat rectangular sockets. When you want to plug in a USB device, you can plug into any open USB port. The plug will also only fit one way, so if it will not go into the connector just flip it over.

Front panel USB connectors are often hidden behind a door. Look for a swing-open or slide-down panel. On some cases the connectors may be on the top or sides.

When connecting devices such as a printer or external hard drive, you should use the rear-panel USB ports. These go directly into the system board and have the best performance. Front-panel USB connectors plug into the main board with cables. For most devices (including your SanDisk) it doesn't matter which you use, but the rear-panel ones are best for high-speed devices or moving lots of data.

You can usually find the user's guide online at the computer manufacturer's website, and that will show you where all the connector are on your system.

If this solution has been what you need, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

CHECK SIGNAL CABLE


Typically this happens when the resolution of the display is out of range of the monitor. Normally this is when the resolution is too high. Have you changed the resolution settings? Also, not to be crass, but if there a video card in the system, be sure that you are connected to the correct VGA connector. With an extra card in the system, the onboard VGA connector is not used.

Keep us posted,

External FM antenna


The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.
