Display stays in dim mode AWR1-1W (later version) brief power outage

We experienced a brief 1 second power outage a couple of nights ago caused by a nearby lightning strike. Ever since that event the display in my BWR has remained very dim so it is really difficult to read it in daylight or at night. Everything else works as it should. Without a schematic it’s hard to trace back the problem. It could be the light senor or the LED driver. Any suggestions?

    Had the same problem. To fix, hold down the CD mode button and press the volume up button. Adjust to desired brightness level.

Yes I think you're right.

You are lucky this is all it is.

Bose do not seem to supply spare parts direct to the consumer, and I'm afraid lightening isn't covered in their warranty. If you want to return the unit to Bose, first you need to call them to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. This number helps them track the status of your product. In the United States, call 1-800-367-4008. Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM ET and Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM ET. International customers, click here to find the facility closest to you.

Have the following information available when you call:

  • Product model and series number, if applicable
  • Serial number(s): Please note that Lifestyle® systems have separate serial numbers for the music center and Acoustimass® module
  • Date of purchase
  • Details of the problem you are experiencing
  • If your product is no longer covered under warranty and you plan to send it to Bose Corporation for repair, please have your credit card number available.
Alternatively - find another damaged system with a different fault, and swap assemblies.

Hope this helps.

Whirlpool WRF560SEYB Refrigerator did not turn back on after power outage, display said "cooling off"


Sounds like you had a power outage?-- did the lights go dim for a few minutes, before the power actually went out?-- Sometimes, low voltage will cause the compressor motor to over heat-- so it might have to 'cool down'-- What happened next?-- Did you try it again an hour or so later/-- Tell us more-- Mack B

Water inside tank-type water heater can remain hot for some time.
That's one advantage of well-insulated tank-type water heaters.

Power outage can be related to failure of gas control.
Unplug stuff when power goes out. And then plug back in after power is restored.
Water heaters with electronics are not protected from surge.
Electronics can blow out during and after power outage. For example nearby lightning strike will cause current to run along household wires. With ordinary power outage, once power is restored, the surge can affect all kinds of electronic circuitry such as timers, water heaters, water softener, treadmill etc.

Sounds like you have intellivent gas control valve:
Open following link to identify gas control, and download typical manual, and download intellivent service manual with troubleshooting, error codes, etc.

The monitor goes to power save because no signal is coming from the computer - this means that the computer was fried by the power surge that caused the outage. To find out what was fried inside the computer you must open it and test its components one at a time, starting with the power source - time to take it to someone that has other parts to test it, or to an repair shop.

Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.

Sounds like the typical power surge created by the outage has caused a power supply problem inside your TV. IF that is it, there not much you can do yourself.

Samsung RS2555SL humming noise


don't know this model specifically, but have had loads of problems with these samsung fridge-freezers. the no water in drinks dispensor is probably due to the water bottle at the bottom of the fridge being frozen. this is endemic with samsung the noise you hear is ice hitting fan. samsung use two systems for fan. the one i think you have is separate fans for fridge and freezer and a separate evaperator for fridge and freezer. take of the back plate of the fridge and you will find the fan mounted in it. disconnect the plug and socket connection. you will probably find ice build up round the fan blade. melt off with hot water. the bar you had showing on the "8" is a fault code - the most common fault being the defrost termination sensor. unless you are experienced, this is not really a diy appliance

Oven display won't work


rmedrano, Try pressing and holding the stop-time and cancel pads together for 5 seconds, see if it comes back to life. If not, try the cancel and clock keypads together for 3 seconds. First is the control lock-out funtion and the second is the display blank mode. If these fail to work, you are going to have to test for power at the board. The clock (ERC) has a 3 year warranty incase you have to call for service. Catriver.post back.
