Is the manual to hand?

Is there a telephone nearby?

What does it say about this particular fault?

If it doesn't give sufficient information to be able to clear it, then what does it give about the telephone number of the drive manufacturer's local technical helpline?

Repeating it here won't solve the problem!

  • What does the manual say about it?
  • What does the telephone helpline customer service representative say about it?

Why not? Is the telephone line engaged, for example?

Is it something silly, like a damaged or loose communications cable, perhaps?

"i am not able to contact the customer service"

Translate: I'm in a low cost of manufacturing 3rd world country in which the owner/government bosses do not allow their worker/slaves to use telephones, but web access is already there so they can sell on eBAy, so they allow their pseudo engineer/slaves to post inane questions to forums populated by gullible real engineers who are out of work, because of low cost of manufacturing in 3rd world countries with owners/government bosses who don't allow their worker/slaves to use the phones.

I believe that this is what's called an "unrecoverable fault", which means there is nothing that a casual user can do, you MUST contact the factory. If you cannot, then you have a boat anchor, and not even a very good one at that (depending on the size of the unit). But before scrapping it, I would take the earlier suggestion and look for a loose connection.
