Question about Sharp CV-P09FX Air Conditioner

1 Answer


The unit is completely drained but the lights (RED YELLOW GREEN) are blinking and the unit won't work.  These lights according to the manual mean that the water tank is full it and needs to be drained.  The tank was never full and I went through the draining procedure to be safe but the lights still blink. Anyone got any tricks?

    I'm experiencing the same problem. We drain both the top and bottom ports but that only works for a few minutes before the lights start blinking.

Hi all,

I think the problem is that the A/C has tripped the electrical switch located in the plug. To correct press the black button followed by the clear button. Then try turning the unit on -it has worked for me so no reason it should not work for you.

    Hi everyone,

    Here is an important follow-up. The reason most of the folks are having this problem is that we were proactive and emptied the water tank. The electrical switch is tripping as I mentioned above which is why the green, yellow and red lights are blinking.

    The A/C cabling is tripping because you most likely have left the top switch which is a turnable knob in the wrong position (where the straight edges are vertical instead of horizontal). Turn this to the horizontal position to have your A/C operation return to normal.

    This didn't work for me. Each time i reset it, it will run for about a minute, then the pump will kick on for a minute or two, even while empty, and then it shuts off with the "three lights of doom". I've double and triple checked the horizontal/vertical drain tube plug, and have even sat the unit on it's back to make sure all residual water is out. What do i do, now?

The unit has a green, yellow and red light (all in a line) blinking. The ac does not respond to any of the controls on the remote. Switching the unit off and then on again doesn't solve the problem.

This sounds like a newer unit with a large circuit board outside at the compressor unit. If so, it is possible that you only need to replace a fuse on that board. have you looked at your operators manual? There should be instructions on what those lights mean...

Recharging - indicator lights when complete

When the green light stays on that means the battery is fully charged. The correct charger for that light is a Class 2 Transformer
Model: KA12D120030042U It has a output of 12VDC at 300 mA

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean

According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.

Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.

Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:

Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service

This is a reminder that you are almost due for an oil change, or other maintenance. It will soon turn red, it's determined by mileage driven since it was last reset. You can reset it just by inserting the car key into a slot, which I believe is under the tachometer. By inserting the key, it will reset to green. It actually isn't a light, just green, yellow or red that turns over like the odometer at specified mileage. Let me know if you have any trouble finding it. Curt

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game

3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in) may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

Back with a solution!
All you have to do when you have the yellow lights blinking and you cant power your phone on/off, is put your phone on the charger for about 15-20 mins. I think it has something to do with the battery. Hope this helps =]
