Error message 0x886a6546 on

Hello Cap,

I hopethat you got a better answer than I did searching for an answer to this problem. they told me it was dead and offered me an upgrade for $200+. They did try some basic troubleshooting, but there has to be a better answer and I am hoping that you having a month's head start have that answer.

So, the issue:
The product displays an 0x ... error code when printing (for example Error: 0x866a6546). These error codes indicate that the product has an internal condition. (or maybe needs to have all the previous jobs deleted from the memory because it is full?)
Use the instructions below to resolve the issue by restarting the product.

Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.

Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.

Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.

Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.

Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.

Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.

Close the cover.

If prompted, print a calibration page.

Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.

If these steps did not resolve the issue, contact HP technical support for assistance.

Hope this helps

Download the latest Direct X-runtime from microsoft so it can repair any errors with Direct X. Try running Skype once the Direct X setup has completed, if skype still fails with same error message then uninstall Skype and try installing an older version which you can find here.

Blue screen is coming with 5e02 erroe

Hello Sanjay -- NOT a good sign I'm afraid the 5E02 message is a PCB error.
I just checked a website for a manual with trouble shooting ideas to send you and the sites are full of 5E02 problems and the only solution appears to be - Take it back to a shop if under warrantee.
Problems were UK , USA & Australia -- (I use ) as my search engine and i typed
"olympus 5e02 error message" and it applied to non-focussing problems , no display etc
Here is one link as example -- Ray

Entire microwave is dead except LED screen which has a message -- E 5 -- Spoke to Samsung who told me to unplug it for 10 minutes - that dosn't do anything. This is a top of the line over the stove...

From the Samsung FAQ:

For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locater (sic) to find your nearest Authorzied Service Center.

It may be a failed sensor.

E4 message and what to do to clear it

That may be it. In some cases you can clean them, but if it has become brittle, it may snap. But it's worth a try.

First of all, I'd try a cold reset by unplugging the oven for afew minutes then trying again. If that doesn't clear the error, it's probably the thermistor.

The oven would have to be removed from the wall so the outer wrapper can be removed, then you can remove the sensor and attempt to clean it.A gentle scraping with the toothpick might work, or gently soaking it in hot water. Just be sure it's dry when reinstalled.

If needed, you should be able to order a new thermistor here:

It is dead

Of course it is very difficult to say what is wrong when all I am told is that it is dead. First I would check the main fuse and if it is good then I would look for and replace a 1000uF 25V cap on the secondary side of the switching power transformer. This should be done by someone with experience.
