Rice maker won't start. I've got a double dash on numeric screen and no response no matter what buttons I press. Manual doesn't give any troubleshooting advice. I've pressed all buttons; unplugged device and retried but no change.

Good morning to you
Did the rice cooker not have a measuring cup, where the water: rice ratio was given?
My experience has tought me that you cannot go very wrong with two cups of water for one cup of rice.
no matter where the rice is cooked, in a rice cooker, a saucepan, the micro,
try this and as time goes you will get it perfect taking into account the type of rice.
All right, this can be a bit confusing. IF you still have the cup that came with your Rice Cooker, use it to measure your rice. Then, inside the cooker there are lines showing how much water to add based on how many of the Zojirushi measuring cups you used of rice. THAT's simple.
IF you DON'T still have your Rice Maker measuring cup you will have to use a 3/4 cup U.S measuring cup. This equals the same amount as the rice cooker cup. For each 3/4 cup of rice you use, add that many cups of water. If you use 3/4 cups of rice twice, then add water to the 2 line.
In other words, a rice cooker measuring cup equals 3/4 cup of regular U.S measuring cups.
Hope I didn't confuse this too much. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution. Good luck and happy cooking!
I had the exact same problem with my rice cooker. I took the lid apart. There was a broken wire because of the constant friction of the hinge when open and close the lid. After I soldered it, it started to work again.
Rice cookers will only cook if you have enough water in it. If all the water has cooked out, then the cooker will turn off. Remember when you put your rice in the cooker, make sure you level it off. Then add twice as much water so that it will over cover the rice.
