Unplugging it (for only a couple of min.) worked for me.  Press AUX, then ON.  Green light came on after I did these steps.

My tripp lite smart1000 lcd don't want to charge

Wait for the power to come back on. If it's already back on, unplug the unit from the wall, unplug all devices from the unit. Plug the unit in, turn it on, let it sit for an hour before reconnecting devices to it.

Try using the power button on the TV if the remote isn't working. If this works, check the batteries in the remote. If not unplug the TV wait for an hour, plug back in and try again.

F71 code

The F70 and F71 error codes indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board).

Sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait one minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally. If the code come on again, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit.

I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.

Hope helps (remember to rate this free answer)..

Remote works intermittently changed battery also been sent a new remote and still the same this is on a Zeppelin iPod dock Cheers Chris

if the remote has been changed and the batteries changed, it would suggest the the remote interface has a problem, this is on the opposite side to the led. check to make sure the speaker cover has not slipped or been moved across to mask it, or that the clear plastic is not damaged or marked.

if this is an older unit and the power supply and interface boards have not been changed I would contact b and w service and tell them about your problem and ask if your serial number unit has been had the power issues rectified.

No video. LCD comes on. Sound works. Suspect PC Board or LCD Interface, need suggestions.

The LCD control board is defective. Normally the LCD control board comes with the LCD panel (with a shield coved on the back of the panel). Check you user’s manual, call the service center to see what they can do.

Bose Cinemate green led won't come on.

Do the same thing by unplugging the power, but also unplug the interface module (box with red/green LED light) from the sub woofer / bass module, and wait 30+ seconds. Plug the interface module back in first, and screw it in as tight as possible. Then plug the power back in and try the remote. This should fix your problem. :)
If this doesn't fix it, you will have to purchase/replace this module through Bose. (anywhere from $40-$60 if not under 1-yr warranty.) If you're still under warranty, it's a free replacement.
