Re: answering machine unit stopped working (KX-TG1034)...
Your problem is kinda common with all digital machines. I don't know if its the sag in the ac line (just as bad as a surge), or a ac surge when it comes back on, but it messes up the power circuit which in turn blows some of the processors (in addition to scrambling the boot program). GillB had the right idea for trying to reset the cpu, but it sounds as if your unit has gotten hit harder than just scrambling the boot program. I don't know how much Bang charges for repairs but from their site it looks as if they bounce you to a local dealer for your service options. Nevertheless, if you reach deadends with Bang or other service options I will try to help you fix it cost effectively though I have never repaired this exact model. You can reach me by googling "answering machine repair" and click the first couple of non sponsored links. Good Luck

Hello. I really need the model number and make of the unit to help you most accurately. From what you describe, it sounds like the control panel might be defective. Also, the main board could also be corrupted. Have you had a power outage recently--about 3-4 weeks ago or sooner? Outages are NOTORIOUS damaging digital boards in appliances. The fact that you didn't press anything might mean that a button on the panel is shorted. However, to try to reset the board, try removing power from the unit by flipping the associated breaker in your power panel to off for about 2 minutes. Turn it back on afterwards and see if the unit will start. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks!
Hello. If your unit is running continuously, the timer/control board is defective and needs to be replaced. I need the make/model number to help you accurately. If you have the mechanical timer(round knob that turns), it's not advancing(no repair possible). If the unit has an electronic control, the program quite possibly is corrupted--or a relay is stuck causing the problem. Have you had a power outage recently--3-4 weeks ago? These are notorious for damaging the control boards from the current surge when power is restored. I hope I helped you--definitely give me the model number, thanks!
Most likely, if power *is getting to the unit*, (there are lights lit on the washer), then the culprit will be a shorted user interface board(control panel). This is a fairly common type of issue with dishwashers. The soft-touch buttons or the touch panel has a shorted button or area(depending on the type you have) and nothing else will function because the unit thinks you're still pressing a control button. Also, a VERY common cause of this issue, aside from moisture or bugs, is a power outage damaging the console when power is restored due to a surge. After an outage where damage occurs, the symptoms don't usually start for about 3-4 weeks after due to damaged chips on the board starting to fail.
Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33kV and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
their is sometimes a high psi switch that has a manual reset. it is red with a red rubber button. it is usualy lokated in th outdoor unit. in most areas it is code that their is a disconnect within 10 ft of the unit most of the time they have fuses in them. open the disconnect and their is a plastic sheild that needs removed sometimes.
