    I have the 5150c (the compact version) and have had replacements from Dell of



    -motherboard

    -fan

    -RAM

    -power supply

    -hear sink



    and still the problem persists. It runs for a few minutes, sometimes a few hours, and then just goes into a blinking orange light mode all of a sudden. To turn back on, I have to unplug it from the wall.



    PS: I'm not stupid - i have standby and hibernate off.

Hey gatchaman,

Thanks for your reply!

I just repalced it - I had a brand new battery in my "battery closet" - and it still shuts down by itself, with the blinking orange light and all.

Thanks for trying :(

You need to replace the motherboard lithium battery. Looks like a watch battery.

Orange light flashing, no chargine


A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

After changing the bulb image will not come on and solid orange light appears


Other then POWER BUTTON light there are three lights more
1. lamp indicator
2. temperature indicator
3. computer input
witch one light is flashing RED or illuminated RED with POWER BUTTON orange light.
If LAMP INDICATOR light is illuminated RED than lamp runtime has reached 1800 hours. but projector still working.
If LAMP INDICATOR light flashing RED than lamp circuit failure, or abnormal function or lamp unit is damaged. In this case projector doing the same behave just like your projector.
if TEMPERATURE indicator illuminating RED the projector still projecting and if flashing RED than turned of itself

Power button if flashing orange and nothing else works


It's likely that your power supply has started to go out. There are several different leads with varying voltages & amps. If your computer is getting enough power to make a light flash yellow or orange then this often means that there is something wrong with one or more of the voltages from the power supply. Sometimes it means that something is wrong with your motherboard. Like: burned out capacitors, resistors, & etc.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
