    I might have this same problem. On my HP dv9225 laptop, I have been consistently experiencing this when trying to power on. The lights across the top of the keyboard will come as normal. After a bit, they will go off and then come back on. This is repeated until I hold the power button down long enough to turn it off. Occasionally I can get it to come on by retrying. When that doesn't work, I press the QuickPlay for Quicktime and the computer will come on. I log on and then QuickPlay launches. Previously, even accidentally pressing the QuickPlay would cause QuickTime to launch without having to login....

    Thanks for the detailed suggestions.

    Of course, when I have an external monitor available, the problem doesn't happen! I'll keep trying when I can but I don't think that is the problem. It has more to do with power because the lights blink on and off. When it properly boots up, they don't do that.

    My problem is not exactly described in HP's recall, but I may contact them anyway and ask.

    Thanks!

First of all, try connecting an external display source like a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook after turning it on and press hold the FN key and press the F4 key once to toggle the display to the monitor connected.
If you are able to see the display on the Desktop monitor connected to the Notebook, the issue is with the LCD, if not, the issue is either with the Graphic Card or with the Motherboard.
Additionally, I would like to inform you that HP had identified some hardware issues with few Notebooks installed with AMD Processors and is providing free repairs for notebooks purchased and currently available in US and Canada.
You need to get the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N and is printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook.
Check if the Product Number of your Notebook is listed in the list available in the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01300427
If your Notebook product Number is listed in the link provided above and if the Notebook is installed with AMD Processor, you need to contact HP Chat Support and provide the required details and get the Notebook repaired by HP for free.
You can find more information about this repair offered by HP from the link below :

Hope this helps...

My packard bell zg 5 won't start after the battery has drained. When I plugged the charger in, the battery indicator only keeps on blinking and won't start.


Try removing the battery and then connecting the power adapter and see if the laptop will start normally with no battery installed - if it does, then you should get a replacement battery.

I'm trying to recharge my headset but the green light remains on (I clicked on the botton on the headset piece but it won't turn off). When I try to turn it off, it beeps at me


try doing a system reset press the call control button and the volume mute button at the same time for 5 seconds. when the talk indicator light blinks release both buttons. press the call control button again and the talk indicator light will blink again briefly headset is back to normal then unplug the charger from the charging jack for 5 seconds and plug back in headset is reset. if that doesnt work then replace the battery in headset.

Just bought my dad a second hand go go 3 wheel elite scooter


Hi Linda. Sometimes if there is a blown fuse or faulty connector on the battery leads, the charger thinks the batteries are charged as the voltage coming out of the charger rises to the high level. Some chargers will cut out if this happens. It is probably not the charger.
Make sure the batteries are plugged in correctly, sometimes during transport they will get knocked and become disconnected.
Also make sure that the battery terminals are not loose where the wires connect to the batteries.
Good luck. Neil.

When trying to start up my dell latitude CPX nothing happens, and when I plugg up the wall charger, there is a blinking light but still no power


A blinking light normally indicates a dead battery; however, since it does not power up when power is plugged in, I would suspect that the power jack on the motherboard needs to be repaired. This would explain the lack of power and the inability to charge the battery. I replace powerjacks a lot. Good luck. -Carlos:

Motorola S9 headset won't charge batteries


This might work if you aren't using the ORIGINAL charger. I had this problem when my cat chewed through the original Motorola charger. I figured my Blackberry charger would work fine, but it didn't. I then discovered that my Blackberry charger was 700mAH and the broken charger was only 550mAH. When I found another charger with the proper power it charged. I also found that it worked when plugging it into my computer with a standard mini USB. I hope this helps.

the charger might have the problem, and the light that you are seeing apart from the light next to power/battery is the hard disk led, this is showing that HDD is active, your motherboard is not damaged. you might want to check if you need to defrag the Hard disk by right clicking my computer then selecting manage, there you may analyze whether it needs to defrag. now you may check the charger if its chrging by clicking in the taskbar.
