    I have one of these coolers, and the same thing happened. One day it is fine, the next it is dead? It appears the fuses are okay? Is there a thermostat that could have broke or something like that?

Hello DeanFro,
Happy to assist you,

You said,
unit was working fine, but now it's dead. is there any troubleshooting steps available. there are two circuit boards and there is no obvious problem like blown fuses etc...

1.Try to unplug the unit for 5 minutes and then restart it. To see if this resets the system.
2.If not then it is a freon leak or thermostat that bad!
If you one year warranty for parts and labor.
And if you bought it before 2006, then you have 5 years for the compressor.

You sound like you need a hands on tech to diagnose the problem.
Bless You,

Thank You

If your unit is totaly dead after plug power & turn on, no one of Led-s is iluminated or no "bip" sound generatet you have with alimentation cirquit, maybe the primary of transformator is burn. The pcb work with 12 V so you can conect a new transformator.

The control panel no longer displays numbers

Hi,if the display is a bluish-green color when it working it is most likely a vacuum flourescent display it is a type of tube that has very fine filament wires in it heated by a low voltage supplied by the control circuit board if this voltage is missing the unit will function but you won't see any display at all sometimes the soldered connections to the tube will fail and depending what ones come loose you can lose parts of the display but if it is all out it could be the filament connections to the display tube these are usually a row of flat thin tabs that connect to the circuit board the filament connections are usually the first two on each end of the row.if they are ok then furthe troubleshooting will be needed to determine if any voltages are missing.M any repair shops just swap the bad control panal for a new one but that could get expensive.I try to service all circuit boards to the component level but sometimes you have enough problems its better to change it IF,big IF a new one is available. Good luck.

Olevia 537-b11, blue light won't come, even when power cord is replaced. Please help!!!!


Since you've already replaced the power cord and still the led light won't came on, this is an indication that the power supply board of your unit is dead. If it is not under warranty period(if so, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free) open the back cover and check the continuity of the fuse using the multimeter, if you found it open replaced it with the same current(ampere) ratings and then try to turn on the TV. If the replacement fuse blew again, this is an indication of more serious problem on that board. If the replacement fuse didn't resolve the issue, other parts on that board gone to malfunction as well. If this is the case, I would advice you to replaced the entire board for your convenient. The cost will almost the same rather than troubleshoot it. Check the actual part no of your board and check this LINK.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

CH-DVD 320-won't come on at all. Used to work fine. Now won't come on, it's dead.

If your unit has no led light lit on the front panel, this is an indication that the power supply board is not working(dead).

First thing to check is the basic, I'm assuming that your outlet is live. Check the continuity of the power cord using the multimeter. Sometimes it has an internal broken wire due to frequent pulling and bending. If the power cord is good, open the top cover of the unit and check the internal fuse. Sometimes due to voltage surge and aging, fuse fail. If this is the case, replacing with same current(ampere) ratings will cure the problem.

Let me know if the fuse is intact or blow again after the replacement to determine the next steps.


We have a Magnavox 37MF231D TV and it popped and now the screen won't turn on. No power at all.

Popped sound was came from a blown electrolytic capacitor and most likely in the power supply board. This board has now gone to incomplete circuit(dead) that's why the led light is not lit. If your handy with electronics, you may troubleshoot this board and look for shorted capacitor, open fusible resistor, shorted voltage regulator IC, open fuse. If you can't troubleshoot it yourself, another option is to replace the entire power supply board for more convenient. No soldering required, just pull-out all the cables connected from the existing board and put in the new board.
Also, check if your unit is under warranty/extended warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the back cover because it will void the warranty.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

I have an HP 7410 with the error message "remove and check color cartridge." The circuit board behind the cartridge is not damaged, and the side-load spring is intact, so that's not the...

Sounds like the mainboard inside of the printer is bad.
Some things to verify this, make sure the cartridges that your using are original HP Cartridges and NOT 3rd party ones, even though 3rd party can work, its hit and miss and can cause sporadic problems.
If that doesn't fix it then try this troubleshooting step:
Reset process is........unplug power cable from the back of the unit, without turning it off, wait for about 10-15 secs & then while plugging in the power cable press & hold # key & the 3 key.....once u can see the unit powering on let the buttons go. Its important that you do the plugging in of the power cable while your holding these buttons on the printer........you will see a "partial reset" being displayed on the printer.
If that does not do the trick you can try the same with the # key & the 6 key on the printer. This is a semi full reset.

If u still get the error msg its a hardware issue with the printer & cannot be fixed with regular troubleshooting.

At that point unless the printer is under warranty I would replace it because parts aren't available for it.

I have 2 channels that do not respond. Both the xlr or 1/4 input won`t transmit.

I assume you mean the input channels.

Things to check:

1. Do the sliders work smoothly or do they have rough spot?

2. Is the trim (top knob) turned up?

3. Are the gain controls for the mix turned up? Try turning up the mon controls on the dead channels and see if they come through the Mon outputs. Try turning up the FX inputs and see if they reach the FX level sensing.

4.Are the pan controls set center? Mutes off?

5. Has any liquid been spilled into the unit?

6. Has an "accident" occured such as driving the inouts with a high voltage or something with a ground loop? Has something smashed down on the slider knobs? (this sometimes breaks the resistance element in the sliders or cracks the board.

A reasonable amount of troubleshooting can be done from the available outputs and some of the above things may seem silly, but with all the options on these units it is easy to overlook something.

HAier HVT12ABS wont turn on

I had the same problem. My 18-month old Haier HVT 12A wine cooler stopped working. I unplugged the unit, opened the back, and saw the circuit board and the two fuses soldered to the circuit board. The top fuse was OK. The bottom fuse, labelled FUSE2 5A/250V on the circuit board, was blown.

I went to Radio Shack and purchased a spring-loaded push and twist fuse holder ($3) and a bag of fuses (another $3). I soldered the leads from the fuse holder to the top and bottom of the dead fuse 2, inserted a new fuse, plugged it in, and it has been working fine ever since (1 month). If the new fuse fails, it is easy to replace. Total cost $6.

Fedders Dehumidifier - Wont Turn On

Looks like a control board, Check the board for burn marks. What model do you have? Some parts are available on-line at appliance factory parts.. also check your Capacitor and fan motor before you install your new Board..Let me know if this helps? Krazytech
