Soubnds like a door micro switch problem. Try pushing the door firmly inwards towards the drum and at the same time press start and hold the door in until it starts.
If this works you may need a new door switch or it may require adjustment

My GE Quiet Power 1 is constantly beeping when you press Normal wash, and then just flashing when you press Start/Reset.

Try cutting power to it at breaker box and see if electronics will reset. If not, sounds like a control board problem

With power button push in the light comes on and fan comes on but in 5 seconds it turns off. I've tried with battery out and just with power plug , still the same results.

Can be one of the following
  • Remove battery and power lead - press and hold the power ket for 60 seconds. put in power lead and it may start.
  • If you are getting beeps or lights flashing then you have a Power On Start up Test (POST) error. This means you have a hardware failure in the system. The actual error depends on the motherboard and the error beeps. Solutions vary depending on the error, can be from replace memory to motherboard is shot. Please let me know if you are getting beep codes, this may need professional repair.
  • Does not start and no beep codes, then the power or the motherboard has failed, this will need professional repair.

When it starts up it goes thru the steps then the error light comes on and it will not print. I put in a new ink cartridge and it did not help

The 8 beep error you are getting is a waste ink tank full error. The BJC 85 has a waste ink " tank " that is actually a series of absorbent cotton pads in the bottom of the printer. When these pads fill with ink, the printer is designed to produce that error and stop printing until the pads are replaced.

I can give you a work around to this and get you printing, but you must understand that, because the waste ink absorber is full, ink will eventually start leaking out into the bottom of your printer and either leak out of the printer, or end up shorting out the main circuit board , which is also in the bottom.

Here is the work around that will reset the printer and get you printing again:

1. Shut off the printer and unplug it from the power supply.

2. While holding down BOTH the POWER and RESUME buttons, plug the power supply back in. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the buttons until after the printer does it's initial actuation and then goes quiet again, then let go of the buttons. .

3. With the fingers of one hand Hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons and with the other hand hold down the POWER button. Listen for 2 BEEPS. they will not be loud, and one will be longer than the other. When you hear the 2 beeps, let go of all the buttons.

4. Now press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it' pressed. Make sure you count the beeps correctly.

5. After you have pressed the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button. The printer will beep and shut off.

6. Press the POWER button and the printer will power on and be ready to print. At this point, the printer will have been reset to indicate the waste ink is 50% full.

If you make a mistake, you can unplug the prnter and start over from step 1 at any time.

REMEMBER: Your waste ink pads are still FULL. You need to either replace the pads, or replace the printer before to much time goes by. If you see any ink leaking out the bottom of the printer, definitely stop using it.

It is beeping "Error" with 5 beeps

5 beep error means that the waste ink tank is full. You can reset the counter to make it print by doing the following: You have to be exact. If you make a mistake in any of it, just go back to the beginning and start it all over.

1.Unplug the power cord from the printer

2.Hold down BOTH the POWER and RESUME button at the same time and then plug the power cord back in. Keep holding down the buttons until the printer finishes its powering up noises.

3.After the printer is quiet, release the POWER and RESUME buttons. Then hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons at the same time with one hand, and press the POWER button with the other. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons until you hear 2 beeps. They will come quickly together and one beep will be longer than the other. Listen carefully, as they are not very loud.

4. Once you hear the 2 beeps, release both buttons.

5. After both buttons have been released, then press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it's pressed.

6. After you finish pressing the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button one time. The printer will beep and shut off.

7. Turn the printer back on by pressing the POWER button. The printer will work fine now. The waste ink will have been reset to 50% full.

One long beep and two short beeps

I believe that is a Pheonix bios and the beep code you gave indicates motherboard problems.

Sylvania p70d20al-d5 microwave keeps beeping

I have the same problem with my microwave, the clock disappears and it says "enter" and "amt", I figured out it's the "beverage" button that is sticking. When I want to use it I just press "beverage" and then "reset" and just press them over and over until it stops. Usually it's on the first try, sometimes I have to press them a few times. Just don't do what I'm about to type though, I decided to get my razor knife and cut the button out carefully, I only cut the contacts on each side of the button, now no buttons work, I should have left it the way it was, at least I could use it that way.
