No power I purchased the above item. At first everything was working fine. Then while reading a disk the light continued to flash.Once the disk was removed,additional attempts where tried with the same results. Now even after trying all my USB ports I have no power to the unit.

Well, the first step in any problem of this nature is to narrow down the problem. We have three main things in effect here, and we need to know which one has the problem before we can fix it. First, the disk itself. Try other disks and make sure the disk is not faulty. Second, the usb ports. Try other devices in your usb ports to ensure they are installed and configured properly. If all of those work, it is narrowed down to the floppy drive itself. If it does not work on any pc's at all, then it definately has a problem, and I would suggest contacting SmartDisk technical support.

I just replaced my ink on E238 laser printer and the yellow light is flashing. I have been on hold for 45 mins with you help line. Everything still prints but the light is flashing


  1. Enter the printer's Configuration Menu. To do this:
  2. Turn off the printer.
  3. Open the front cover
  4. Press and hold the Continue () button.
  5. With the front cover open and the Continue button pressed down, power on the printer.
  6. Hold the Continue button until all the lights cycle.
  7. When just the Error light (!) is displayed, close the front cover. The top four lights of the operator panel should come on, indicating that the printer is in configuration mode.
  8. Print the Configuration Settings page. To do this:
    • Press and hold the Continue () button until all of the lights flash. This page lists the functions within the Configuration Menu. The functions are the nonĀ·indented items listed along the left edge of the page (along the bottom as printed from printer). They are also unshaded.

      Save this page for possible later use.
  9. Reset the photoconductor page count as follows:
  10. Press and release the Cancel button () to move sequentially from one menu item to another. NOTE: If you get lost, you can press and hold the Cancel button to jump to home state (top four lights on).
  11. Press and release the Cancel button until the Toner Low () light is the only light left on.
  12. Press and hold the Continue button until all of the lights flash.
  13. Then release the button. When the Toner Low light is once again the only light left on, the photoconductor page count should be reset to zero.
  14. Return the printer to normal mode. To do this:
    • Power it off for five seconds and then turn it back on.
  15. Print a menu settings page. To do this:
    • When the Ready () light is on, press the Continue button once. The Ready light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.
  16. Check the photoconductor reading on the menu settings page. To do this:
  17. Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor under that heading.
  18. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
  19. If the photoconductor reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages.
  20. Print the menu settings page(s) again. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
  21. If the photoconductor reading is still low, refer to the Configuration Settings page you printed in Step 2.
  22. Confirm that Reset Photoconductor Counter is listed on the page.
    Also confirm that the light sequence for the photoconductor counter is the Toner Low light.
    • If the light sequence is correct, try repeating this entire procedure again from the beginning to reset the counter once more.
    • If a different light sequence is listed for the photoconductor counter, repeat the procedure but this time, instead of stopping at the Toner Low light (Step 3.2), press the Cancel button until the operator panel shows the light sequence that corresponds to the one listed on the Configuration Settings page. Continue with the remainder of the procedure as before to reset the counter again.
  23. If the photoconductor reading is still low after the page reset procedure has been performed twice, the printer may require service.

I have a Whirlpool lgr7646 dryer and it won't heat up. everything else appears to be running

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

I understand the motor runs but the burner does not light. There are several things that can cause this condition.

The high limit thermostat (Item 15)

The flame sensor (Item 49 above link) If this part was bad the burner would light but go out after about 30 seconds.

The igniter (Item 65 below link)
The cycle thermostat (Item 9 link below)

And the burner assy solenoids Items 14 and 15

All of these must have continuity for the burner to light.

Power comes form the timer to the door switch and motor switch then on to these components.

If you read them with and Ohm Meter and no power with at least one wire disconnected from EACH part you can determine where the continuity break is.

If you download this manual$FILE/4322260.pdf
it will help you gain access to the parts above.

Thanks for using FixYa!
