Switch on and start to take a photo. Maybe can take one or two then it freezes, locked into where it was pointing. No controls work. I have to take out the battery and then can switch it on again. Then it freezes again...

You have a very weak capacitor in the circuitry that hinders the use of this camera. replacing it with a new one is far cheaper than having it repaired these days if you have a low end cost camera say $150 or less

Why don't the rear door locks work anymore?


first is fuses are they good.?
the locks on cars are solenoids.
im guessing all ways to open it fail,
keys, key fobs, and internal controls panels?
no childern locks set (some are hidden on cars)
no drivers, panel , master lock, he pushes it and all locks freeze?
this is a general statement.
so you use a thing like a volt meter. $10 at walfart.
we check for 12vdc across the 2 solenoids.
12vdc when active is good.
0v is bad,
if you get 12v then the solenoid is bad or jammed.
if you get 0v, the controls are bad.
its that simple. and electro magnetic solenoid, is easy to test.
with any voltmeter made.
if the controls are bad we use the same method to check them.
12vdc to the switch it must be.
then you push the rear switch and 12vdc leaves this switch.
if not the switch is bad.(input good)

I changed the lid lock but its still blinking why


MAYBE THE ACTUATOR

LID LOCK LIGHT STAYS ON NO START:

Usually either the lid lock mechanism, the lid lock actuator or the board is the culprit even a disconnected capacitor.

MACHINES SAIDS SENSING
When the START button is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer
will slowly spin the dry load to estimate the load size, and begin adding water. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been
added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.

NOTE: The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.

Try unplugging the cord a couple of times. See what happens then try going into diagnostic error codes, see what codes are shown. To pin point where the problem is. if you have no display to read the fault codes. Your main control board may be the issue.

Next, while in Manual diagnostics, try to get the unit to spin; if the motor hums for a split second and then shuts down with the lid lock blinking; go back into diagnostic codes and look for shifter or speed sensor errors.
This is proof that the shifter/sensor actuator assembly is the issue because the optical sensor is not reading the motor speed.

I suggest unplug the washer and check the wire connections on the switch. If a meter is available then you can check the resistance (ohms) of the lock motor.

Note: After performing the manual test and the lid lock works perfectly, or at least as it is supposed to. You can eliminate that as the problem.If the lock worked in the manual test but doesn't in an actual cycle then I suspect the control board is at fault.

A safety feature found on front load washing machine is the door switch and the door lock and strike. On most models, the door switch must be closed and the door lock must be activated before the washer will start. The switch is normally located in the door frame of the washing machine, but may also be part of the door lock assembly. Inspect the strike to make sure that it engages the door lock assembly and that the door remains closed. To check the door switch for continuity with a multi-meter, you will need to disconnect the power and remove the front panel.

The lid switch on a top load washing machine is a safety device designed to prevent the motor circuit from operating when the lOn some models, the water inlet valve circuit is controlled as well. If the lid switch fails, the washer may not start. The lid switch is normally located beneath the main top with a projection on the lid or a pin attached to the lid that will actuate the switch when the lid is closed. Verify that the switch is being activated mechanically and that any levers or actuators are not damaged or sticking. If the switch is being activated but there is no power being supplied to the motor or water valve circuits, then the switch may be defective

The start switch on some top load washers is often part of the timer and is activated by pulling out on the timer knob. Although not normally available as a separate part, the switch can be tested for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove power from the appliance and then locate the correct timer contacts as noted on the wiring diagram. On some electronic controlled models, the start switch is a momentary contact type switch located on the control console. You can test this switch for continuity with a multi-meter when the push button is held in

The freeze protection thermostat has gone bad.
To confirm this, disconnect wiring from freeze control.

Freeze control can be purchased separately.

The freeze control on my PF1222TB is not working. Whenb the temp drops below the temp set on the contol, it does not start the pump


Freeze control is a thermostatically controlled switch.
There are 4 basic components:
-Wire connections that can come loose. Check that wire terminals are tight.
-Thermostat setting that can be set lower. Move dial and see if that has effect.
-Thermostat that can go bad.
-Internal switch that can stop working.

Replacement freeze control can be purchased separately:

Intermatic PF 1102 digital timer with freeze control; Timer will switch from off to on to auto, but when switching to "on' the pump will not turn on. There is a "click" that indicates to...


The freeze control is wired parallel with timer, so both controls can turn Load ON-OFF.
So Load turns ON when either the freeze-control or the timer turns ON.
When both are ON, then Load will be ON.
Freeze control can be ON and timer OFF and Load is ON
Freeze control can be OFF and timer ON and Load is ON.
Only when both Freeze control and timer are OFF, will Load be OFF.

If pump is not turning ON below 32 (or the protection set point), then freeze control thermostat is suspect.
But you need to check if pump turns ON when timer turns ON.
If pump operates with timer, then freeze control is main suspect, unless there is a loose wire.
Open box and check for loose and burned connections.
If pump does not operate with either timer or freeze control, then check for loose wires and also check your circuit breaker and check that pump is operable.

To find replacement freeze control, Google search: Intermatic freeze protection thermostat

check first for the contact point of your control panel button maybe the tact switch is shoted specially when your always using remote control for function operation.second check power supply for leak capacitor or change in value,check also the photo coupler for leak test or change in actual.

Card locked


There's a little yellow switch on the left side of your memory card labled "lock" with an arrow pointing down. Push it up. Note: If it doesn't work right away, try uploading all your photos to your computer and then dumping them off of the card.  Push the switch up again and it should start taking pictures again.
