Outside unit will not come on unit is a heatpump model

Common problems:

1. Fuses blown: Located near the outdoor unit, usually in a small box mounted on the side of the house. The electrical line will go in to the outdoor unit from this fuse box. Usually has a door to flip up or sideways, pull a cartridge out and the fuses will be behind the cartridge. If you don't have an ohm meter to check them, just take them to the nearest hardware store they can probably check them for you, or just change them both.
2. Circuit breakers tripped: Located usually in the main breaker box in the house or outside by your elec. meter. If breakers are tripped they will be noticeably different than other breakers. To reset, you have to pull them all the way over and back up. If they are reset , they will remain in the up position and look like the rest of the breakers.
3. Low on refrigerant: Most heat pumps have low pressure switches that will shut the unit down if the unit is low on refrigerant. If you don't have knowledge and tools to check refrigerant, this is when you will have to call a technician. If you do have the proper tools, I can step you through refrig. check.
*also, while you are at it, check the outdoor coil and make sure it is not dirty . On a Ruud you will have to look under and through the outdoor fins of the case. If you see a lot of dirt under the fins, your coil is dirty and you will need to wash it out good with a hose and sprayer. TURN POWER OFF BEFORE SERVICING. Hope this solve your problem. Mark

My daughters DVD player won't even turn on?

First unplug it and check the entire cord for spits and or cracks. Make sure that is OK. Some outlet sockets have a circuit breaker on them. If you have one see if it accidentally tripped and reset it. Perhaps the circuit breaker in the circuit box tripped. Check that as well. Now maybe the outlet you are using is bad or went bad. Try an outlet you know is working right now. If you try all of these and it does not turn on then something inside the DVD player is malfunctioning.

Outdoor unit on a sanyo split unit not going on

Hi, check the box at the outdoor unit. Some have 2 fuses inside behind the plastic cover. One may have blown. Also, check the breaker at the main power box for a tripped breaker. If it is tripped, and keeps tripping when you reset it, your compressor is grounded. You can remove the 3 wires from the compressor, tape them and turn the breaker back on. If it holds, this confirms the compressor is shorted to ground. Is this helpful?

Won't power on...

The TV probably has an internal short, most likely in the power supply. If you open it, you will probably find the main fuse is blown (which is why it didn't trip the breaker again. Don't bother replacing the fuse until you find and fix the short - you'll just blow the new fuse and probably trip the breaker again.

A/C unit turned off- didnt realize we had a mat covering the unit

If the breaker had tripped, you'd detect some looseness in the trip switch, even though it may not appear to be tripped. Once you have identified the correct breaker, trip it to OFF and then back to ON. Also check at the unit; it will either have a service disconnect, a fused disconnect or a circuit breaker at the wall. Compressor units have a thermal relay that causes them to shut down on high temperature. Let the unit cool down thoroughly. If this is the issue, and you are standing close enough, you may hear it reset when it cools. Usually, cool down occurs in 30 minutes or less. Try it again, but don't leave it unattended until it has made it through several cycles and you are confident that the unit is back to nornal. If any further issues develop from this incident, shut the unit down, trip the circuit breaker for the unit to off and call a serviceperson.
I hope this gets you going again!

Best regards, W/D

Connecting dvd player

You need to use a receiver and connect the units to the receiver input, Then connect the receiver output to your television's input circuit. This should allow to switch inputs to the television. This can also be done with a switching box that allows several input and output. This unit should be hooked up in the same manner with the outputs to the switch box inputs and the switch box out to the television's input circuit. the difference between the two methods is the receiver has a preamplifier that will increase weak signal levels. The switch box is a passive device and usually will not amplified the signal to the input device. You can buy amplified switch boxes if you need them. Hope this helps you with your problem.

I need help! Our cable jack on our tv is messed up so we have to run it through a dvd/vhs player. I have tried everything to get it to work. I can play dvds and see them, but i cant get the satellite to...

Change the source on the Philips/Magnavox to switch between satellite and movies (warning: this particular Philips/Mag cannot process HD Satellite receiver boxes). You can switch sources by using the Magnavox remote and pressing 0-2. Then press ch down until the display says either L1 or L2 - whichever input the satellite is connected to. Another warning: For my instructions to work, you must have a non-HD satellite receiver, and you must run a red, white and yellow cable from the satellite box to the Magnavox instead of a standard coaxial cable wire (and then, of course, run a second set of red, white and yellow cables from the Magnavox to your TV).

The icon that tells you the power is on is flashing

Try the following:
1. Press on your unit up down and reset together.
Your unit will start and read the BIOS from the HD.
2. Do not change anything - no up/down!
3. Press OK to write it back
4. Press Menu to get out.

I assume that your BIOS got broken by the circuit breaker.
Good luck
