Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

I understand your concern so lets start with what it could be besides a board, PF error means power failure, are you sure the unit is getting the proper voltage supply from the wall plug? It may just be a bad plug.

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 1 year ago.

Try unplugging the unit for about 10 minutes and plugging it back in and see if the board resets.

Then if the PF still appears try pressing and holding the off/cancel key for 5 seconds. Then if nothing unplug the unit and check all the wiring to the board for loose wires or corroded connections. If all that checks out then the transformer on the board has failed and it will need to be replaced - :

Hi there,

I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, is there something else I can help you with or did you just forget to rate the answer?
