    Screen blank. Power button steady red. No response by other buttons. Unplugged unit and removed ink cartridges (manually, as ink cartrideges do not slide over automatically when power is on. Powered up. Light on, no changes. Have disconnected from tower.

How do I fix a Canon pixma ip6600D printer?

ALARM LIGHT which always glows - RAM error (logic board is dead)

Relay clicks when applying power. Yellow light comes on. TV is dead otherwise. Power supply is outputting +5, 12, and 24 volts Mainboard (3647-0282-0150) has +5 and 12 volts always applied. Checked...

Amber light on means standby voltage is high. IF amber light does not go white when power button is pushed the its one of two things.
A. No power on command from main board. Usually labeled PS-On. Should go high from 3.3v or maybe 5volts. If not present Main is defective.

B. If the ps-on line is going high then your problem is a defective power supply.

hi there!

try changing batteries. or try turning it on while charging, if theres no problem when its directly plugged in with the charger, the battery may be dead (especially if its more than a year old). otherwise, its so much better to bring it to your local technician.

Kenmore Dryer Model #68202 just quit working. Set

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Things that will cause a dryer to just up and stop are:

1. Door switch
2. Motor Switch
3. Belt switch

The first thing to check is the door...

a. Verify the door remains closed and that if you gently tug on the door that it does NOT make the door switch click. Things like the switch actuation post get worn and clothes being dried press against the door and can cause the dryer to stop.

The second thing to check is the drum.

a. Reach inside the dryer and push the drum in either direction. If it moves easily with little resistance (Belt not turning the motor as drum is moved) then the belt has broken and the belt saftey switch has been activated causing the dryer to appear dead in all aspects.

The last thing that can cause it to just stop is a failure of the motor or motor switch. (Least suspects at this time)

Also go to the main Circuit breaker panel and physically turn off the dryer 30A Circuit breakers by pushing them against the off position and then back to the on position. This resets the breaker completely

You did not mention the age of this Dryer yet at this time I suspect a broken belt has tripped the belt safety switch.

Thanks for using FixYa!

When I flip the power switch to ON nothing happens- Dead.All connections solid. Can I get a replacement switch?

If the printer has all lights on solid. It usually means a 900 Error.There will be secondary and sometimes tertiary errors codes in form of light patterns by pressing the continue button twice. If that is the case then you probably need to replace the main controller board. If you could provide me with the secondary and tertiary light patterns I will be more than happy to tell you what the exact error is and where may the problem be.
