Its a good possibility that the hard drive could be damaged from a drop or sharp inpact of some sort. Now if you say you didnt drop it then the hard drive probly needs to be formatted and yes you will lose all your programming. Send the unit to the manufacturer to get an estamate or take to an authorized repair center.

The same thing happened to me. One of the solutions was that if you took the mp-3 remote and while holding the on button;on the remote you would also push the little heart; the mode and the play buttons all at the same time. Well when I tried this it did not work and nothing changed. The other solution which worked very well was to take the back off via the 4(four) little screws and there is 3(three) wires coming from the battery and going to a plug....... Unplug it wait at a minute at least. That should and will reset the camera's disc drive. Because of this fairly easy task (other than the tiny screws that jump all over the place) my camera is back in action and like brand new.....fantastic!!!!!!!!GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY PIX...................................................

Apple has reported that they have had several bad "batches" of hard drives. Your best bet is to make an appointment at your local "Genius Bar" (the Apple Store Tech Support counter) to have it checked. They will be able to connect it to a diagnostics unit that identifies the serial number on the drive and determine if it's listed in one of the batches. They will also be able to tell you if the unit can be reinitialized. However, the bad news is that in just about every scenario you'll lose the data on the device. That's one of the reasons it's so important to keep it syncronized with the iTunes on your computer!

Do you have the remote for this unit and if so have you attempted to do a reset?

Posted on Jul 29, 2007

Check if the hold is on. if it is, then it won't turn on, and says that.

What does error code nd mean?

Hello, Vicky -

Is your washing machine a Samsung? If so, "ND" means "No Drain."

Read the information here:

If I am incorrect in thinking your washing machine is a Samsung, you can Edit your question and add the make and model of your machine, so I or someone else can find an owner's manual for you and check the error codes for your particular machine.

I have Samsung DVD home theater system model ht-d300k it went of nd never turned on ever again what might be the problem there nd how to fix it?

what do you mean "went of nd"? Not knowing what that means, I will tell you that after many years of dealing with all sorts of electronics, the first thing to do in your situation is to unplug the unit or units, wait about 3-5 minutes, plug them back in and try to turn them on. Sometimes, things just need to "reset". On the other hand, it may do nothing, but that is the first step. I've run into this again and again with TiVo, and it works more often than not. Good luck.

My nokia 3110c headset is suddenly switched off nd before it offs its screen blinks 3 times nd now whenever iam turning it on stil its screen blinks around 3 times nd switch off,plz help me that what i hve...

This happens since there is a problem in the firmware of the mobile.Once you update it the problem will be fixed.It may happen due to virus also.Initially try total reset if that solves the issue then there is no problem else try updating the firmware

2 times - to mean overcurrent

S light blinks on dashboard and the car do not move well

Could be your VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor. Since your car is a 1996 model it is OBD2 (On Board Diagnostics 2) This means you can go to AutoZone and have it scanned for free.

GE Spacemaker, Model 7-5295 the cd light blinks and the cd spins but it does not play. After a short period of time nd flashes.

ND means "No Disc". It's probably a newer CD - one that's been copied, perhaps? It's got a format newer than what the CD player on that unit will recognize. Try an older CD.
