Dell power edge 4600 wiht 4 power supply redundant problem
Hello, for 2 weeks, the visor LCD of my servant Dell Power Edge 4600 indicates me a problem (mistake E0876) with the power supply. I have tried to remove and put the source, during a few seconds, the visor LCD becomes blue indicating that quite this correct, but immediately, returns to put on orange with the mentioned mistake. I have turn off the server without result. I have returned to power off the server, I have changed the positions of the 4 power supply and now it is always amber... As I have understood, it can be a problem of the own module (one of four modules) or of the card that administers the energy.
Any solution? Thank you for advanced. Oscar Madrid

Thanks for your no answer !!!
Solucion: apagar servidor, cambiar la posicion de la fuente de alimentacion que marca el error ( el visor LCD indica la posicion de la fuente de alimentacion con error ) y ver si continua el problema. Sino continua, ok Si continua y sigue marcando la misma posicion, dos opciones, o es la tarjeta de administracion de energia ( esperemos que no ) o es un fallo del LOG de Hardware, con lo cual, bajar la herramienta DSET de Dell y borrar el LOG ( tercera opcion ) y voila, el equipo como nuevo.

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard.May also be a defective card inserted into your motherboard.Try isolating the problem by removing all components until you just have motherboard and power supply and see if it turns on.
An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
If your monitor is going in Power save mode it can be cause by following reasons.
>Check the data cable going from monitor to your Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is connected properly.The connector will be blue or white in colour.
>If the Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is powering on.
If still in power save mode then try to shutdown Tower and monitor,disconnect power cable from tower and monitor.Hold the power button on tower for 15 seconds.Then again try to connect monitor and check,if still nogo,and if tower has no lights then issue with motherboard or video card or power supply.If possible try connect spare known good monitor.
I also had I05F0 instrusion alert with amber lights flashing. After much searching I found that it meant "Chassis intrusion" - When you remove the cover, the system assumes that
you are servicing the bad component; the LCD display will clear when you
replace the cover. Our IT guy didn't put the cover back on completely the last time he was in there!
Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up. Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active. If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced. If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.
That particular Dell uses a power supply with non-standard wiring. The plug is the same size as an ATX plug, but it's wired differently. If you were to replace motherboard & plug in the standard power supply, it would damage the supply, or the motherboard, or both. Also, the front panel plugs (for power & power LED & hard drive indicator) are proprietary as well. Ideally you should replace it with another Dell Dimension 4600 motherboard. I've found replacements for reasonable prices on some of the auction places on the web. I recently replaced a failed motherboard in my Dimension 8300 with one I got from a popular auction site, I think my cost was about $59 plus shipping.
The other option would be to remove the hard drive, video card (if any), and optical drives, and consider a 'barebones' package from various sites such as geeks or newegg.
Does the hdd lite come on? cd lite come on? The blinking lite on the power is an indication the bios or power supply is having trouble. strip the unit of all devices except hd, kb and use the vga built in video. Remove the ram also. restart and see what happens.
