Blinking red light

The red light on the front of the machine blinks all the time, even though all the components are in place. I have tried removing them and replacing them with the machine on, so please don´t suggest that. Also, sometimes (even with the blinking light) the hot water comes out and sometimes it does not. I guess i should mention that at first the brew unit would not fit back into the machine, so I opened up the machine and turned the dial from the inside until the brew unit fit back into place. But the red light still kept on blinking.

    Red warning light continuously flashes. I have performed all the usual tasks that the instruction book says to do. When I power up the machine it makes all the “usual” sounds but when I press the brew button nothing happens and the red light continues to flash. I have primed, cleaned & changed out the water to no avail. All appears fine. Is there any way that the machine be reset ?

    Thanks, Ted Gawloski

Aha! The lose piece was indeed the problem. Getting it reattached was time consuming, however. I spent about 5-7 hours today trying to get everything apart and get the piece put back on.

In the future, I will be more gentle with this machine, especially when putting the brewing unit back in after rinsing it out. (Do rinse it out, by the way, about once a week. Otherwise the quality of coffee you get will gradually get worse and worse.)

The blinking light is a warning that something is not right.
-It will blink when the espresso waste basket is full. sometimes they stack up funny and it appears full and light blinks.
-second the beans don't always fall into the grinder from the hopper. They just need a gentle nudge
-Third it may be low on water.
-Four if you don't push the door closed on the fromt and ensure the spout where the coffee comes out is pushed in to the reciever inside the door the light will come on.
For me it has always been on of these four things.
Once I got the hang of the little nuisance everything works great. I love my machine and would buy another.
I have one or two espresso's a day,

Probably washer is smart enough to detect the out of balance.

Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

New lamp is placed in tv, but tv won't come on. Light in front of power button is blinking green, then blinks red. Not sure what the problem is


One question, why you decided to replace lamp in tv? Did tv showed red lamp light blinking?
Suggestion, make sure lamp cover has been placed back in its position after lamp replacement, lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to take out lamp.

I had the same problem, brand new battery, the indicator light still blinking red. I finally got mad enough to shake the mouse kinda hard, and it worked. I then removed and replaced the old batteries in, it started blinking red again, but it worked after I gave it a couple of hard side by side shake. I do notice that there's something moving inside the mouse. It could be a connector that got loose. Hope this fixes your problem

Sony W580i won't turn on. Blinking red light.


It turns out i found a solution to my problem. All you need to do is wait a few days and every day try turning it on several times. Mine turned on with 2% power. If you don't see the red light blinking then you probably need to charge it up then turn it on.

Red light far right blinking continuosly (#26)


Hi jason,

The flashing red light indicates tha _something_ is not positioned correctly. Please check and see if you can find the sensor(s) that determine whether or not the components are correctly positioned.

You might also try unplugging it for 10-20 minutes to allow any electronic sensors to reset when you reconnect power.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon
