My dad had this thing working today, but now I moved it into my bedroom, plugged it in and I can't get it to turn on. There must be a trick. Battery is good, screen working, can't turn on the filter. Please help!

I used to use a damp papertowel and then an antiseptic wipe or spray a tiny bit of windex on a second paper towels and wipe each bar individually lts just a pain and a bit scary. this way it should be left to dry for hours. the dust is connecting the ionic filter the metallic bars that look like the bottom of a DVD are statically connecting creating the pop noise a shaking or rattling noise means it probably wet.
I got a trick use a microfiber towel to wipe the majority of the filters filmy residue. then grab a screen cleaner used for a tablet I pod or a cell phone. once the icky sticky collection on the ionic filters metallic bars. the cell screen cleaner. should make all the metallic parts oil and dust free. and they can be used over and over again. a microfiber towel just needs to be rinsed by hand afterwards if it's dirty it's fine it's just used so that there's no papertowel remnance. a glasses lense cleaner should just get the oils off afterwards cause that will make it so it won't attract dust quicker which is how it shakes wen wet. Basically tiny dampness attracts dust creating a clumping which makes it unbalanced so then the shaking or rattling. u gotta start over again. those are two ways.
now afterward take a deep breath plug it in hold the button down for 3 to 5 seconds. This should reset the switch to normal and then press it again to turn it on. it should only have a tiny breese. My dad would say that it's broken but it's for allergens and free flowing dust. So have it a foot off the ground and usually near a light switch cause they never have furniture there also all switches are out of the way cause usually the first thing you need to see is light which is why ur hand reaches not ur feet as if u would kick first to find a couch. if you have it by the couch or chair it my seem plesent till it falls. all purifiers r the same an ion charge stimulates low electricity attracting fibers or dust as a balloon gathering static electricity. the best purifiers to have are the water filtering purifiers no problems there just change the water once a week. well I hope you got some knowledge of helping you understand how and why they do as they do. most people end up giving them away.
Check that the purification plate contacts and associated wiring are clean and make good contact with the plates. Also check the plates themselves for dirt build up on the metal grid. If the plates are a few years old, they should be replaced. Your dealer should be able to help you get new plates. Leave a comment if you need additional help.
those things are not worth a bit. you should throw it away you could even possibly be causing yourself more indoor air quality problems by running one with the amount of ozone they produce and put into your home. throw it in the garbage.
your sensor board has failed , a realy common problem , most if not all are dead and no parts are made for it ...... you do not need the sensor anyway it was only installed as a knee **** reaction to fda worrys of ozone levels over 0.05 ppm in bedrooms . so the board was installed to cut at 0.05 ...... it was a failure , so a bypass switch was added to get around the problem board ... just set on man , adjust for your sq ft ... you will be fine
Didja wash the plates? It takes a little maintenance, and there are a lot of things that could make it stop working (Magnum, anti-aircraft fire, someone tripped over the cord, power quality in Karachi is lousy, there's pudding in the works...) but washing the plates with dishsoap and water, (then drying them before trying to start again) ought to fix most things that could be wrong.
Sometimes a fiber (a gift from a guest, maybe) is protruding into the works that needs to be removed, but those are the main reasons.
Wher can you return it? Does anyone have and address? My Dads unit has a blinking blue light and the folks at sharper image say to bad so sad only after 2 months out of warrenty. Is there any one out there that can help? I am done buying things from Sharper Image with their attitude! [email protected]
