    Sorry, my previous post was listed as a solution. Should have been in the "Same Problem" area.

    I have the exact same issues with the 360, I have replaced the cartridge (so it is full) - yet when I try to initiate the cleaning process the red light illuminates which indicates empty cleaning solution cartridge. I have tried unpluging, pluging it in while shaver is in base, visa-versa, etc... To No Avail...

I just fixed it now .. when the cartridge is inside and full turn the whole bas upside-down for less than a sec .. ( while the power plug is disconnected ).. then try plugging and cleaning again

    This actually worked! Pump must have needed priming.
    Didn't need to add coloring to my home brew (70% isopropyl alcohol + few drops lemon oil).

I refil my tank with 91% alcohol. The base sensor will think it's empty if you don't add color, Braun adds blue tint to cleaner to trigger full-tank sensor. A drop of non-water solution color will do the trick. They made it a bit difficult to not use their costly cleaner, but it's doable.

    You are awesome. I have been refilling my own cartridges for some time, but I suppose I finally diluted the original coloring. I add oil of peppermint to my alcohol, so I just added a couple of drops of blue food coloring. I should also mention that I used these instructions with my Series 7 razor/cleaner.

I have the same problem with my 8985. Base charges fine but when I press the button to clean, it says the cartridge is empty and stops. New full cartridge is installed. Seems like this is a common problem.

Riccar 8995 no suction


I think you mean it's an 8955, Riccar has not had a 8995 model. If there is no suction in the hose it has to have something clogging it. Open the little round opening on the back of the vacuum where the hose attaches to see if you have suction there.

Braun 8995 - YELLOW LIGHT STAYS ON!


I experienced the same symptoms on my 8995; solid yellow light (even though the cartridge was full), cleaning failed (red light on) after pressing either start button. After many failed attempts to clean the razor, unplugging the station and pushing start button, I decided to clean the razor under running water. I rinsed the razor under water and then turned it on allowing it to run in a pool of water (like it would in the station). After water cleaning, I returned the razor to the station, pressed the start button and it worked! Was able to do both the quick clean and auto clean.

The cleaning station for my 8995 goes through the motions of cleaning but the bristles are no longer flushed into the fluid reservoir as they used to - they remain inside the shaver and also in the...


You can make sure you have a nearly empty old cart in your shaver cleaner base, and then run some rubbing alchol into shaver or even some mixed with some soap to help break down the oils in the stubble crud. If you can put some also in a spray bottle and use it to clean with a little force, that will help some.

HP CLJ 4700 empty display, no answer


When the display is light and printer is ready for printing but does not pass pages:
There are still jobs in the memory buffer of the printer.
This could be solved by pushing the oval select-button.

Notice:
1. Entering the oval select-button also activates the new control panel settings (when they have been changed).
2. Printer control panel settings could have been changed over a network cable: checking the settings is a next step when problems do
disappear.

QCA Opal hot tub display reading OH.


The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.

Hi, have you changed the drum anytime soon? If so did you clear the message before installing the new drum? The only other option would be to try a diffrent toner. There is not toner reset counter like there is for the drum! So I would reset the drum counter and see what happens. Good Luck
