My DVP642/37 is malfunctioning. The Standby button just keep flashing red. There is a DVD in the slot, which cannot be opened now. But we do know the DVD is OK,...we had already viewed some of it the day before, and it has not been removed.

That is not a good sign at all. Try unplugging the player from the power source for a good 2 minutes, replug it in and right away hit the eject button. It sounds like the DVD player itself may be having hardware failure, thats what the flashing standy button usually means. Try resetting it the way I talked about, hopefully you can at least get the disc out. From there you can try playing it again if the dvd player seems to be functioning normally.

Thanks

Xbox 360 power button light keeps flashing and disc tray does not open


Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down.
it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again.
do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is

so for instance
you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin
so write down 4
then hold white button down again and press open button again
it may flash 4 again
then do it again and it may flash 2 lights
then again and it may flash 2 again

when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this
4 lights flashing
2 lights flashing
1 light flashing
2 lights flashing

if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

let me know then i can assist you further ok

Yellow light on wii


It's just the way the wii works. Hold the power button for about 5 seconds and the power button will go red and turn off instead of going yellow and going into standby mode.

I have a technika lcd tv/dvd. It is only a few months old but it is stuck in standby with the red light on the front continually flashing and will do nothing else. Any ideas?


I have same unit (which works in my case) but the red light does not flash on 'Standby', only when it is seeking a station after pressing the red button on the remote.

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
