The units in this manual contain a self-diagnostic function. If an error occurs, the STANDBY/TIMER LED will automatically begin to fl ash. The number
of times the LED fl ashes translates to a probable source of the problem. A defi nition of the STANDBY/TIMER LED fl ash indicators is listed in the
instruction manual for the user's knowledge and reference. If an error symptom cannot be reproduced, the Remote Commander can be used to review
the failure occurrence data stored in memory to reveal past problems and how often these problems occur.

one error, the LED will identify the fi rst of the problem areas.
