If you have an error code on a Daikin mini split, the problem can be found by using a chart with the codes listed.
Sometimes Daikin unit will not be working, and no code displays, in which case the remote control can be used to find the error code.
To use the remote control to find an error code, press the Cancel button on the remote control for 5-6 seconds until 00 is shown on the display.
After the 00 flashes, the Cancel button will cycle through the codes giving short beeps for non-errors and a long beep for the problem error.
Read here for how to find a Daikin error code using the remote control.
Below are the error codes on the left and the malfunction to the right.
For example, for an E1 error code, it would be a defective outdoor PCB.
The chart also gives possible causes; for example, the E1 could be a defective outdoor PCB or a defective connection of the inside or outside relay wires.

Once the problem is known, more specific causes and fixes can be done to get the system back up and working.
Daikin mini splits are good units that will work for many years with no issues, but sometimes things can go wrong.
