Check the back of the dryer where the power cord goes into it and make sure there is not a cut in the cord causing a short, there should be a protective clamp or ring to prevent this from happening but sometime people do not take the time to put them in right. Be careful with it because that is running on 220 and a good shock from that could literelly kill you. So carefully unplug it or better yet turn the breaker off first at the electric panel for it.

Dryer stop working then start shocking you when touch


The first thing you need to do is turn the breaker off to the dryer , that way you don't risk shock trying to unplug it. The next step is to locate where the wire is arcing over, I would start at where the plug comes into the dryer and move on from there. Thats a very dangerous situation, be careful and good luck

Frigidair galaxy electric dryer comes on for a few seconds and shuts right back off error code reads PF


PF means Power Failure,try unplugging the unit for 20 minutes to possibly clear the computer control inside the unit,then try starting it again,if this doesnt help try unplugging and replugging in all connections in case theres a bad connection,lastly if this doesnt solve it,replace the control board

Wii stopped working. the light is not on. There is a disk inside that won't eject. We tried unplugging and replugging everything. Could it just be the 3V battery ?


did the power go out while your Wii was plugged up and on or in sleep mode? if it was, you probably need to unplug you wii from everything and let it sit for a few minutes. your Wii probably just got 'shocked' by the sudden lack of a power source. If the power didnt go out, then I dont know how to help you~ Sorry. I hope I helped!! ^-^

Lg dle3777w dryer filter light remains on and dryer is not working even after cleaning the filter.


I'm sure you solved the problem but as i had the same problem on my electric LG front loader and saw no response i figured I would leave one for anybody else in the future. My girlfriend told me the dryer would not start and as i looke i saw the panel would not power up, I unplugged the power cord for 5 minutes and the LG reset and the panel was on and reading clean filter after checking the filter which appeared clean I tried to restart the dryer at which time it powered off. I again unplugged the dryer and replugged it and again the display read clean filter. I then gtabbed a phillips #2 and unscrewed the filter lint sceen which had a total of 4 scews in the interior of the dryer holding the filter housing unit. Youll see a piece of the housing unit remains screwed into the washer hooked up to two electrical plugs. Seperate both plugs from the unit and unscrew it and remove the unit youll notice two silver strips on the unit and I'm guessing will be covered with a small amount of lint. Clean the unit with a brush and damp cloth inside and out reattach the unit screw first and housing unit and turn on. If the dryer again turns off unplug and youll see the clean filter light. Simply push the custom program light or anything similar and the panel should start working again. I hope this helps someone.

Dell E510 has a solid amber light, no light codes or sound codes. Unit powers up but will not boot. I unplugged and replugged all the wires to no avail. Does anyone have a clue as to why?


Contact dell technical support for a replacement motherboard. If I remember correctly this model had a recall due to faulty capicitors and should be replaced even if you are not under the service agreement still.

Push display - 5 - vol + or - then power. Clear CH setup if there and if the right numbers are not zero the push 8 then enter, that will clear the numbers, like reset. IF unit no workie the start up that way and any zero with numbers are what the units problems are.
