    Red light constantly blinking, does not reboot when following the manuals advice to press and hold poer button for 4 secs? Any idea? Tried unplugging and needless to sy it turned off, but when power re connected, red light blinking again.

    I also have the same problem with my Escient E2-400 Fireball. The red power button simply blinks. I did try the re-boot per the users manual, and it got as far a a screen saying "Backing Up Files" but stayed on that screen for over 2 hours with no apparent progress on copying any files. I then re-booted again (even tried unplugging for a while) and just "hangs" Has anyone had any success with getting this issues resolved. I paid nearly $3000 for this unit and it is only 2 years old.

My installer referred to this as the "blinking red light of doom."  Solution was replacement of unit which has worked fine since.
Hope this is helpful-- would not waste anymore time trying to "reset it."

Why red charge light keeps blinking?


Is your battery a LiPo (Lithium?) If so ... These special batteries are charged by a computer circuit that holds the charge amperage constant and adjust upward the charging voltage until the required battery voltage is reached. At this time the charger hold a constant voltage and decreases the amperage as the battery capacity is "topped off". the charger circuit charges the entire battery at once but monitors each cell (cells are about 3.7 volts each) and controls the charge so that all the cells are ballanced.

When one of the cells that makes up the battery starts to go bad, the ballance circuitry prevents over charging the others, so one weak cell hold all the cells back from full charge and better charger circuits will signal you with an led or such that the battery is' going' bad.

irect Code Entry for GE remotes with 4 digit codes

The following is a short tutorial on entering the codes on GE 4 digit code universal remotes. See also this page for general GE remote code entering instructions!
Step 1: Press and hold the "SETUP" button until the red indicator stays on, then release.
Step 2: Press and release the desired Mode button (VCR, TV etc.). The red indicator will blink, then stays lit.
Step 3: Enter the 4 digit code for your device. After a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes!
Step 4: With your device on, press "CHANNEL UP" or "CHANNEL DOWN." If the device responds, no further programming is required. If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand. Note, when all codes have been searched the red indicator flashes rapidly for 3 seconds.

Code Search instructions

If your device does not respond to any of the codes listed with your equipment, or your brand is not listed, try the following steps:
Step 1: Manually turn on the device to be controlled.
Step 2: Press and hold the "SETUP" button until the red indicator stays on, then release.
Step 3: Press and release the desired Mode button (VCR, TV etc.). The red indicator will blink once, then stays on.
Step 4: Press the "CHANNEL UP" button repeatedly until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator will blink, then stays lit.
Step 5: Press and release "MUTE" button to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Generally it's best to store VCR codes under the VCR button, cable codes under CBL, and so on. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter any VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

Sampo DVE-611 apparently powers up from front panel switch (w/red light) LCD display, etc. No other buttons work, incl. eject. Remote completely unresponsive. Unit shuts down about 10 sec. later. Anyone...


After several power ups, the front panel buttons eventually "woke up". Replaced remote, and everything's working fine. Not sure why the front panel was temporarily unresponsive.

CyberHome DVD player not responding...


The internal power supply has failed and is shutting down each time you try to turn it on. To remove your DVD there is a slot on the bottom labeled: Emergency.... with an arrow pointing the direction you need to push a lever to open the drawer. With good lighting you'll see the tab you need to slide over. Use a small flat blade screwdriver and the drawer will open enough to grasp it and pull it open. The power supply will need to be repaired, but it may have caused other damage and may be more expensive than buying a new player.

Escient Fireball S40


I will never buy any electronic devises form best buy anyway. This is why there product is not top grade. It may appear it is on the out side but its not. Go to a specialty store that sells electronics and look at the prices. Now you tell me how in the hell can best but or walmart or any other sstores sell ther products at a lower price. Don't come with they buy at wholesale prices that is *********. The products are lower grade. And that is the bottom line. If best buy dosent stand behind there products 100% and have to charge customers a 15% restocking fee don't shop there. It all goes buy the old saying you pay for what you get.
