Bought this 18 months ago. Due to major house renovations to my Spanish townhouse never tried it out until 2 days ago. When I power it on a red light comes on at the Standy/eco button. I cannot get the main system to start up. No display on the main display dial. Tried Philips who phoned me and said take it to a service centre. This has never been used!!!!!! Please can anyone help. Am I missing something very basic or is it possibly more sinister

Re: Cant get it to start
To reset the system to "install" mode press & hold the "play/pause" button in the center of the unit until "AUTO INSTALL- PRESS PLAY" is displayed.
If this doesn't work then the unit may be too hot! I see on the philips web site that this model has a temperature sensor & will shut itself off. I am in Spain too & the temperature inside right now is 30C!!

All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel.
I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case.
Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
