Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

When I go to start my machine, pressing the start button, nothing happens. If I let go of the button and try again, it beeps 3 times and still nothing happens. I've found that if I wait a while (unknown amount of time) and go back, it will work just fine.

The CCU must be on it's way out.Tech sheet notes: FH: If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering
machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be
displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after
8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing
through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will
be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
If there is no water in the unit:
-Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned
on all the way.
-Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in
the inlet valves.
-Verify inlet valve operation.
If there is water in the unit:
-Verify drain pump operation.
-Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves,
pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.

How do I reset my washing machine?


Sounds like a control problem. Try googling your make and model of appliance followed by "service manual". Most newer, digital controlled appliances have a "secret" service menu where you can check for error codes, stuck buttons, bad sensors and such. Download the tech manual and start troubleshooting. Or you can call an appliance repair tech to come out and do the same thing for a fee.

3 lights keep blinking on umilk nespresso


This means it has entered descaling mode. Press the three buttons on top all at the same time until you hear a beep/chime. Then your machine should be ready to go again. This happened to me once when I didn't notice that the water reservoir was empty and I tried to make espresso. If this happens and nothing else is an issue like what happened to me and the drip tray is empty and in correctly you likely need to descale the machine. You should do so at your earliest convenience so that you don't harm the pump because the machine is full of limescale.

My Macbook Air made "beep


The bios on the machine hardware has failed to book.
You could try plugging in machine and ensure battery is charged.
Press and hold the power button for about 20 seconds.
also the other thing is to immediately after you press the power button.
hold these 4 keys at same time continuously - cmd, alt, P, R
hopefully machine will power up and down and up again if you keep holding them.

I wnt away from home for a few weeks and when i came back i wanted to play my ps3 but when i turned it on all i got was a black screen so i tried reseting my ps3 sevral times and and still nothing happened...


Have you tried resetting the video ouput?

Try these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later.
Step 3. Release the power button when you hear the second beep.
Step 4. Wait to see if your PS3 starts up

What this does is reset the video resolution back to standard definition.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
