I found with my Panasonic EP578 that, if the lower photo sensor limit switch gets too dusty, the massage mechanism will travel downwards past the normal range of motion and the electronics will time out because the unit did not get a down limit sensor signal & reverse direction and proceed back to the upper limit switch in time. With the device unplugged, I simply removed the grommet screws and opened the fabric backing. Then I removed the units cover and Then blew out dusty photo sensors with compressed air. Then I swapped the red and green, 2-pin mag clutch coil connector plugs so that when I switched the unit on again I could make the unit travel back up to about, the scapular position. The reason that this is possible is that when you first start a normally working machine, the first thing that happens after the motor turns on, is that the motor clutch for the mechanism that provides the neck and vertebral massage balls, also energizes. I figured that I could get the voltage at that connector to energize the rolling clutch to get the unit back up again (as you can't move it by hand). Then I turned the unit off (while stile in cycle) and the swapped the mag-clutch coil connectors back to their original position. Re-starting the machine causes the moving massage mechanism to go through it's Power On Routine which realigns everything to it's 'Home' position and ready to run a fully functioning cycle. Remember to unplug the machine when working on it and keep all fingers, necktie, hair, jewelry from moving mechanism when it's moving to avoid damage to the machine and bodily harm to yourself!

Blinking green light


Check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good. Make sure that when using the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If the train has been running successfully and the problem has only just started, clean your wheels and the pick up roller on the locomotive removing any fluff etc. then clean the track. If the loco is still not working contact the Lionel Service Department on
586 949 4100 or use their website contact service. Contact Lionel Trains

Belt moves for split second then stops


1= Not rexactly, however you must LUBE the deck belt, this a problem because of lack of maintenance, probably a deck worn, this cause enough friction shut down the machine for protection electronic.
2)LUBE the rollers bearing.3)test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair.4) measure the output voltage board, if there are NOT voltage, the board is faulty, see my personal TIPS, and see the block diagram. RUN the software calibration for diagnose, and troubleshooting.
God bless you

Cannon laser fax 1060 P "check paper size"


Hi Margaret
Ok,the problem normaly with this model is in the feeding of the paper.For some or other reason the paper is moving to slow threw the machine and then the machine detect it as a longer size paper.

  • Clean the rollers that pick the paper up and clean also the sepatation rubbers under neath the paper pick up rollers.This rubbers is called the separation pads.
  • To clean this rollers,remove the cartridge and you will see the feed roller at the back.
I think what happened with the move the machine might collected dust and now the rollers are slipping.

Thanks for you support

Fantom twister wont work light is on


When you say, "just stopped", did the MOTOR stop operating and there's no sound from it at all? Or, is the motor still working or sounds like it does, and it stopped vacumning?

If the MOTOR stopped, most likely there is a short somewhere in the connection at the motor. Think 'repair shop'.
If the motor still runs and there's no VACUMN ACTION, think Roller Brush which operates by virtue of a rubber belt. Turn the machine on its side and turn it ON, keeping FINGERS !AWAY! from the roller area. If the Roller Brush is not moving it may be that the belt has slipped off or is broken or simply too loose to turn the Roller. Also sometimes debris such as strings, long hair, carpet strands/fibers will become wrapped around the roller especially next to the roller bearing/brace points, to the point of binding so tightly that the roller will no longer be able to actually roll which would now prevent it from 'Vacumning' or sweeping dirt and such up into the vortex of the vacumn chamber. In which case, !!UNPLUG!! the machine, use small scissors to cut away the material wrapped around the roller paying particular attention to the brace point areas.

Hi I have an Indesit WE16 with some of those symptoms and cannot figure it out - so please don't rate this as useless yet! I am beginning to suspect a bad connection to the motor and I have noticed that the drum only turns anticlockwise in my case - if the program calls for clockwise rotation the machine just hums for a few seconds and then stops.

Does this apply to your machine?
Please add a comment and maybe together we can sort both of them out. D

All error lights blinking and fan running but won't print...


Yes Mr. Guest and Mr SwT,

Replace the fuser assembly unit.

Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.

What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.

Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.
