It has 4 separate on-off A,B,C,D The problem is they won't switch on and off separately. Is there a way to reset them back to factory settings and start again. Bought them from Bunnings.

Unplug switch, plug in and while the LED is flashing, press and hold the All/turn off button. The LED will flash quickly, then it's unprogrammed when you plug it in again.
(This is in the instruction sheet, BTW)

Reset the cmos (bios) by taking out the lithium battery (obviously disconnect from power first) and leave it for 10 minuets. You will need to reconfigure the settings in your bios afterward. If you still have the problem you will have to look to hardware problems, which could be various ones.

SOURCE: i cant get my remote reverted back 2 factory settings because it wont work at all because its the player is set in dvd 3 and the remote is not how do i reset it if it wont work at all

If your unit is displaying DVD2 on the front panel, you will need to set the command on the remote to match the display on the unit.
Point the remote to the unit and press 2 on the remote. Them press system menu on the remote, you should be ok.

Why is the GFCI outlet getting power, but still not working?

GFCI's have 4 terminals. 2 marked Load, 2 marked Line. The black and white wires from the power supply MUST be connected to the LINE terminals. The load terminals is where you connect the outgoing circuit (i.e. plug, light etc). Anything connected to the load terminals will be controlled by the GFCI, so when it trips everything on that circuit will go off until you rest it. The other light/switch cannot be connected to the GFI if you want the switch to control it separately.

Try resetting the TV by disconnecting it from the mains outlet for 1/2 hour, then connect to the main outlet and switch on the TV.

No power to microwave


Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

I must reprogram my tv each time I turn it on

I'm assuming that you are powering the TV off with the remote, not by shutting off a device (such as a home theater system that it is plugged into) and having it disconnect the power from the cord. if this is how it is shut off, that will be your problem.

Likewise, you may have plugged the TV into an outlet that is operated by a wall switch. These are typically found in rooms that do not have an overhead light, and are designed to control a table lamp. Usually, the receptacle will have one outlet that is on all the time, and the other controlled by a wall switch. Check to make sure that the outlet that the TV is plugged into remains on all the time - regardless of the position of any wall switches.

The solution to both of the above issues is to plug the TV into an outlet that is on all the time. The interruption of household power to the TV is most likely causing the memory loss of the settings in the TV.

The other possibility may be the way you are shutting off the TV each night. Some TVs have an on / off function that works with the remote, but only if the standby power is on. If the standby power is off, the remote will not be able turn the TV on. Some manufacturers use different colored indicating lamps for Off, Standby On and TV On.

Without knowing your brand and model TV, I can't go deeper than that. You'll need to consult your TV manual to see if and how your TV works - or provide the brand and model info so we can see if we can find a solution if none of the above works for you. I hope this helps & good luck.

I have Whirlpool model #ACQ128XP0, there is NO power at all to it, breaker is not blown, fan will work in the same outlet, so it is not the electrical outlet, i turned it on the other day, and it made the...

I am not an expert but I have two of the remote controlled 8000 BTU units and one of the 12000 BTU units like this one.

I have found that the remote controlled Whirlpool units that used this type of electronics sometime had a problem with cold solder joints on the motor control board. This is the board that has the relays that control the fan speed and compressor. Check for cold solder joints on all connections that have large diameter wire. These connections apparently did not get hot enough to properly flow the solder on the large diameter wire.


Electrical output requirement for a buit-in oven and cooktop

Providing the existing switch outlet iscontrolled by a 30amp circuit fuse or trip, then there is no problem connecting the 2 appliances to the same switch.
If on the other hand, it is controlled by a 13 amp breaker, then you cannot connect both appliances to this, you would have to use 2 seperate sockets.
Hope this clarifys your question.
