It is quite possible. Replacement of the control board might be needed as well.

Kolin inverter fault code E1

Congratulations, your air conditioner has hit 720 hours of use. In an attempt to push people to keep these things extra clean the built-in this annoying feature that spits out an alarm every 720 hours of operation.

Let's reset it and hope that she lasts long enough to give you this error many times to come. :-)

Two ways to get it done:

1) Unplug the machine. Hold down the power button while you plug the machine in and wait for a beep about 5 seconds long. Let go of the power button. Unplug the machine. Plug it back in.

2) Unplug the machine. Hold down the mode button while plugging the machine back in and waiting for a beep of about 3 seconds duration. Let go of the mode button. The machine will start. Turn the machine off by pressing the power button. Resume trying to use the machine normally.

If these don't work, the "demand to clean filter" timer is broken and you will need to buy parts to repair the machine.

Lid light flashing

OK have you tried unplugging the machine for 15 minutes and then re-plug in? This will reset it. If it still does this then the switch (little hole with white rubber depression on side where lid closes) is bad and needs to be replaced. It is a safety warning indicator telling you the machine is not Locked! It is annoying for a reason cause you can get hurt!

The screen and standby light dont work but touch sensitive buttons still beep

Look for any loose contacts in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors. In order to ensure, it is not caused by the input device, connect a DVD player and see.

Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

I was stupid enough to forget to replace the drain outlet hose to the laundry tub... I heard the machine beeping from the next room... Found water flowing all over floor... Stopped machine in mid cycleby...

I think you can take the power off from the set and allow the memory to reset. Give about 8 hours without the power connection, remove power and depress off the switch. switch to the cycles and bring it back to normal.
Allowing time for the processor to reset will make the machine which had been interupted to come back to normal state.
Helpful? Good day

The ribbon cassette is stuck to the far left and the machine is constantly beeping.

Remove the ribbon cassette and verify there is a print wheel in the machine."don't put the ribbon back in yet. Push the carriage part way over to the right, stop, then switch the power on. The carriage should go to the LHS and the print wheel should "home" itself. If the unit is beeping at this stage...check the flex multi stand cable coming from the carriage. On earlier models the wires could sometimes break a couple of inches from the carriage. The carriage and cable will have to be replaced if this is the case.

Neptune front load washer showing code LO. Door

You can try either prying the door open and then replacig the door switch which is probably what caused the problem in the first place. Or try unplugging the machine for several hours, press and hold power button for a few seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in to see if it resets itself.

WorkCentre M20i will not power on

Most likely on this machine the Low voltage power supply is out.
Before ordering parts, check the back of the power supply to make sure the connectors, 110 volt on the back of the plug have not slipped off. Sometimes they are not slipped on the connector very good and come off. Also, make sure the switch is good, sometimes these switches are just mechanically bad inside.
Disconnect the power and disconnect the main motor plugs, power back on the machine and see if the machine at least comes on, even with an error messege on the console. Sometimes a bad main motor will cause the main board to drain power.

Also, make sure before ordering this power supply, the correct part is ordered for this model machine.
Let us know what you find, just becareful with the power plug in the machine when working in the electrical circuits. Unplug the copier when needed.
