The light blinking 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload". Adjusting the travel limits depends on the model you have but most of them are on the side of the motor unit. If you turn the control in the direction of the arrow printed on the cover the door will travel further. Turning in the opposite direction will shorten the distance.

LED Indications

The front panel Status LED provides an indication of

the set's operation and the possible cause of a malfunction.

If an abnormal condition is indicated, perform the

Self Diagnostics procedure.

Self Diagnostics

To activate, press the front panel <ACTIVITY> &<CH

??> buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

The STATUS LED will then flash denoting a two digit

code.

• The number of flashes indicates the value of the

MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.

• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2

second.

• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the

(ones digit) of the Error Code.

• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.

Example: If the Error Code is "23", the LED

will flash two times, pause, and then flash three

times.

Table 2-2: LED Indications

Error Codes, descriiptions and the most likely cause of

the error are listed in Table 2-3.

Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down." The LED

will probably be indicating an abnormal

condition. If the TV is switched Off, AC is

removed, or a System Reset is performed, the

code automatically resets to "12" No Error.

See the Error Code Log to retrieve a history of

errors.

Note: Use the front panel buttons, not the remote

control.

Note: If there is no response, the front panel may be

locked by a V-Chip setting. To unlock, press

and hold <ACTIVITY> on the front panel for

8 seconds.

LED Indication Condition

Off Off (standby)

Green Power On

Slow Blink Green Power Off with Timer Set

Fast Blink Green (80 seconds) > Off Power Off (Cooling fan still working, 80 sec)

Tv truns on then turns off


if model indicated do the self check it has:

On front of set when green light for power goes out press and hold both the menu and input (source) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

If set has been unplugged you must plug it back and try to get set to turn on--unplugging clears the errors.

Let me know what error you find and I will tell you what it means.

What does the red blinking lights on the "standby"


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Liftmaster mod 1245R (1999) has indicator lightLiftmaster mod 1245R (1999) has indicator light blinks 5 times. Door will not operate from hardwire button. Tried unplugging unit to reset but same 5 blink...


The LED flashing 5 times is the code for "RPM sensor or motor overload". Usually if it is the RPM sensor - which is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor - it will run a few inches and then reverse. I doubt very much it is the motor. I would pull the logic board and check for loose or missing traces on the printed circuit. Especially if you have had any electrical storms or power surges.

On the gage cluster what does F1 or FI mean


The Fl lamp lights up when the computer finds a malfunction in the programmed Fuel Injection. There are 33 different codes. The offending code is denoted by how many times the Fl light blinks.
Nine of the 33 codes do not show symptoms since the engine still runs okay. If the Fl light just stays on then the engine will not run because the computer will not let it run, (except in two cases).
"MIL" translates as "Malfunction Indicator Lamp ".

This is what the service manual says:

" The PGM-Fl MIL denotes the failure codes ( the number of blinks from 0 to 33 ). When the indicator lights for 1.3 seconds it is equivalent to 10 blinks. For example, a 1.3 second illumination and two blinks ( 0.5 second X 2 ) of the indicator equals 12 blinks. Follow code 12 on page 5-26.
When more than one failure occurs, the MIL shows the blinks in order of the lowest number to the highest number. For example, if the indicator blinks once, then two times, two failures have occurred. Follow codes 1 and 2 on page 5-12."

BOTTOM LINE > A blinking light that can't be understood, combined with instructions that can't be understood make the entire Honda "malfunction alert system" totally worthless and a pain in the neck to the owner. Why can't someone in Japan write a computer program that would render something like " Code 23 error " instead of a blinking light that means nothing because it is not user friendly.

You asked what the FI light means. It means you are forced to take your bike in for service at a Honda shop and pay big bucks to the dealer for something you could have done yourself for $12.00. This is a built-in money maker for Honda dealers.

Chamberlain door will not close, despite down force set to max


Problem solved, sort of-
My unit has self diagnostic capabilities: next to the remote sync red button, is a yellow light the indicates diagnostic readings by blinking. In my case the light was flashing 5 times after the door failed to close. This meant RPM sensor failure. I rechecked the sensor and "flywheel" cap and found that it was not completely secured. With the "flywheel" in the proper position, providing readings for the RPM sensor, the door completely closed.
But my yellow diagnostic light is still flashing 5 times. My door is operating correctly, but the diagnostic feedback is still not completely happy with my RPM sensor. So I will keep and eye on it.
