Hi!!
That means that the unit needs servicing, try cleaning the outside coils and cleaning the filter on the inside unit.

Fujitsu asta18lcc has a constantly fast flashing green light and the red light flashes slower 5 times with a small gap between each 5 flashes. Unit wont work at all apart from lights.


The red light (operation) flashing 5 times can be one of four things depending on the green light (timer) but the green light should flash at the same rate as the red light, not faster - either 2,3,5 or 6 times. Anything other than these is abnormal and you will need a tech to diagnose.
Could be a faulty controller board or compressor.

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

Compressor not coming on.. operation and timer led flash 5 times. have 300volts d.c to board for compressor, have voltage to all thermistors, and all connections are tight. also compressor windings ohmed...


Have you checked the run capacitor for the compressor? Make sure its putting out the correct U.F's, 35, 40 or what ever your is. See if is is swollen, leaking oil, or deformed in anyway. If so, replace it. If you have a amp probe, with the unit calling for cooling, check each leg going to the R, S, and Common lead to see if it is drawing L, R, Amps. This will be stamped on top of compressor, and on the data plate. Check these before the compressor trips out on overload. Even if it ohm's OK, doesn't mean its good. You need to check all of the starting componants. Sounds as though you have a faulty run capacitor.

Indoor Unit power on (green LED) blinking


Indoor is working? If yes, it's for waiting for compressor starting. Wait for 3 to 5 minutes. If still it's flashing, problem with indoor PCB.

I have an 18000BTU unit that has an LED that flashes 5 times and then stops,could you pls advize as to the error code of the LED flashes.


You haven't mentioned the brand name. As the error code changes brand to brand I give some solutions. Check with your unit.
e-5 Outdoor activation of compressor over heat protection-Clean condenser coil and check out door f.motor speed. If less replace capacitor.
e-5. Blower motor lock Rotate manually. If hard to rotate, replace bearings or motor. If easy to rotate, replace capacitor.
Please mention brand name and other full details to get solution quickly. Thanks.

It sounds like your inverter is at fault. You will need an inverter tester ( most good service techs will have one ) to prove that the output to the compressor is correct. If the inverter is okay then it will be the compressor at fault with a location error or it is simply seized. A common fault that caused this was the eev remained closed (coil failure ) and caused the compressor to over heat.

Projector was turned off wrong and now wont turn back on.


if the led flashes once in 2-second intervals and you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do, the ballast is bad. if it flashes 2 times, the lamp is past 3000 hours. 4 times, fan error. 5 times, temp too high and it needs to cool.
