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.

SOURCE: Dell (ie optiplex 330) would not boot with the orange light on

Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.

If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.

If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.

I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.

You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.

I have a dell optiplex 330 that is showing blinking amber light when put the system on.kindly advice on what to do to resolve this?


The pattern of the blinking can tell you a lot. if you can get the pattern and then reference the following site it can tell you the cause and some steps to remedy the situation.

Support Article This is a Dell Article that explains the various Blink Codes it covers the entire OptiPlex line, including all the changes that were made through the years.

Another option would be to print out the relevant portion of that page and keep it for future reference as well.

Optiplex 330 power button blking amber


Hello Ricardo,
Unfortunately, a blinking amber power light means your power supply has failed. If your PC is under warranty you can contact dell and have it replaced. If not you will have to replace it yourself.

My Dell optiplex 330 is not getting on only cpu's red light is flashing..


I am assuming you mean the power light is flashing, probably amber.

Here is a link that explains the codes.

A flashing amber light usually means there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction. See the link.

IN dell optiplex sx280 model system we are using in this amber power led blinking continuly yellow color because of this not able to boot the system. kindly give the solution for the same


Hi there!

A blinking amber/orange light on the power button of your Dell Optiplex means a hardware failure. If you know how to strip down your computer to basic component, then I suggest you turn on with only the motherboard, processor, memory and PSU. If you are not familiar with this, I suggest you bring the computer to a qualified technician.

Hope this helps

My Dell Optiplex 330 does not turn on,there is a yellow led light blinking


Hi,
If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might occur.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location, if applicable.

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.
