ER or ERR is a communication fault between the membrane (touch module) and the electronic control.

The code you are getting is generated when the computer cannot sense the membrane or is getting an incorrect signal.

If you or someone there is trying to resolve this issue yourself, you can first try disconecting the power and opening up the panel and cleaning the ribbon connector with a clean eraser- You look for the side of the ribbon that has the actual contacts on it - (this will be obvious to someone that is handy and knows what a ribbon connector is).

Sometimes all you need do is clean that ribbon connector and it will work again. Those models sometimes get steam/moisture in the control panel area and it causes a film to build up on the connector.

There is what is called a "matrix" for testing the individual buttons on the touchpad/membrane. There should be a "techsheet" with that model hidden behind the door.

It can get exensive to just start switching parts to see what works. Be aware if you go buy eother of the parts, and it does not work, you will not find any parts place that will take the part back. You buy it, it's yours.

I usually find the membrane is the cuplrit. Cleaning the ribbon works in many cases.

In the middle of embroidery my machine stops and flashes Er 14, what does this mean and how can I fix it?


Consult your owner's manual in the Troubleshooting Section. Usually there is a list of error codes and how to resolve them.

If unsuccessful there, try contacting a dealer for your brand of machine...

What does message Er IF mean?


LG refrigerator "Er IF" error code is the "Icemaker Fan Error" message.T his error code indicates a problem with the fan that controls the unit's ice production. If this problem occurs because of ice buildup, unplugging the unit for 3 to 4 hours and allowing it to thaw may fix the issue. Call customer service if that doesn't work.

My washing machine keeps flashing F5... It works for the cycle but when it starts to get to the spinning process it flashes F5 and doesn't work


Sounds like a blocked pump, unfortunately unless you are very handy they make it impossible for you to do it as it involves leaning the machine back and taking off hoses etc and it can be tricky to get back on unless as I say you are a DIY'er.

Flashing temperature control for freezer setting


There is no problem for that, as long as the temperature control is functioning well and it display the temperature degrees number. You vary it, hi or low and the unit still cold or freezing.
Sometimes the liquid crystal display of the electronic control module become loosen 'cause it to display in a flash manner. Unless it display "ER" it means there's something wrong with your unit. But so far it operate normally.
Thanks for asking.

Blinking/flashing lights(orange & green) & won;t pring. Have rebooted computer and unpluged printer. still won't print.


that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.

remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.
