Hello my name isXXXXX look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
Have you already tried doing a static discharge?

I am 82 years old I do not know how to do a static discharge
.
No problem I will walk you through it.
If you get stuck at any point with any information I give you let me know.

Unplug the machine.
Then with it unplugged hold down the power button for 30 seconds.

This is a static discharge it removes any power the machine stored up.
Once done plug it in and turn it on.

Then please let me know if it changes at all.
If it gives an error please give me the exact error including any numbers.
