Hi,
its not because of dust. AZUR 640A offers loudspeaker protection if the output of the amplifier goes to a high constant voltage (DC) because of some internal fault. This is a rare fault although detecting it could just save those expensive loudspeakers.
Due to the necessary sensitivity of the DC protection circuit, hard clipping of the amplifier may cause DC protection to be triggered. If this fault occurs switch the unit off, power up again and check
operation with a reduced volume level. If the DC fault occurs again contact your dealer for service.
ok

Makita DC18RA Makstar Li ion Charger three lights


Alternate Red and Green flashing means bad battery. Buy a new one, or take it to a Makita Service center for replacement if it's under warranty.

Normally the yellow light indicates hot battery, but it could also mean dirty battery contacts so the heat sensor can't be read, or that the fan is clogged with dust and unable to cool the battery. The manual says let the battery cool and try again. If the yellow still flashes, it's contacts or the fan.

When I power it up it make a click the the RED LIGHT starts FLASHING and then it's off and flashing. A week ago it was fine, then it started to CLICK and the RED LIGHT FLASHED, I pushed power got...


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Cant start my ps3 it just flash green then yellow and then red all time? what can the problem be?


It is most likely a heat problem. Keep the PS3 in a well ventilated area and remove any dust from the vents. If it still does not work and its under warranty contact Sony here at http://us.playstation.com/support/ask/. If the warranty is gone you try this tips or sell it "as is" http://ezinearticles.com/?How-to-Fix-PS3-Red-Light-Blinking?-Step-by-Step-Effective-Guides-to-Fix-The-Red-Light-of-Death!&id=3654490.

My data projector eiki LC-Xb23 goes off without warning and the warning light is flashing


If the power light & warning light both flash red, this indicates that the projector is overheating. Once the projector has cooled down the warning light would continue to flash red and the power light would be solid red.

You should clean the air filters.

The filters are located on the underside. Disconnect all cables and invert. remove the 2 air filters located at the front and rear by pullingthe latches. They are both rectangular in shape.

Being very careful not to damage them, you should rinse the dust out and leave them to dry fully before replacing them in the projector.

This should cure the problem.

Ps3 has a blinking red light and will not turn on


Its likely because of dust or an issue with something inside the PS3. You will need to take it apart or send it back to Sony (eep £££)
I phoned Sony for a quote and it was substantial so I tried one of the 'fix it yourself' ebooks online and it worked a treat. No more red light flashing ! :D

I sprayed dust remover & now the printer won't print. the status light flashes red & the toner, drum & paper lights flashes yellow (hl5250dn)


You may have blown dust or paper shard into one of the optical sensors. These sometimes are used to sense paper position and carriage position. Try cleanig again and pay attention to these sensors.

Red flashing light with 6 beeps


It means you need to clean the sensors. I have had this problem every now and then. There are 4 plastic clear sensors that you can clearly see when you put roomba upside down.

I have found the best and most effective way to clean them is with a dust wipe. You push the dust wipe in with a cotton swab or even a pen, and rub it around the face of the sensors cleaning the dust off, and it will work fine again.

The reason you need to use a dust wipe like a Swiffer brand is that it is very effective and will pick up all the dust. You may not see the dust and you will keep getting that red flashing error though the sensor may look clean to you.

I just had that problem, and after I used the dust cloth, it's working fine again. Good luck.
