    Which Acer model do you have? Do you have the user manual to tell you which indicator is flashing?

I have the Acer Aspire 5000 and i unfortunatley lost the manual. So the problem is that when i put the power on the laptop there is a light on the side of the laptop and only blinks exactly 8 times and nothing happens on the screen. It is black while the light is flashing.

The power lights flashes three times and the TV doesn't work


Three times flash to LG TVs denotes a fault with its main board. Contact any service technician. If you're sound in electronics, check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Blinking codes to many brand TVs are given in detail. Pull up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or see it in Timslide option.

I have a Cannon i560 printer and the light on printer flashes five times orange then flashes green, what is the problem and how can I fix it.


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...

Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

My hp Compaq 6710b will not turn oh it flashes a yellow light 8 times and then goes off


I would suggest testing a new power supply on your laptop to rule that out as being the problem. This flashing light indicates a power problem on your laptop.

Laptop wont boot and the battery and power lights flash


a simple power cycle might work. Take out the battery but keep the ac power connected. hold the poewr button down for 1 minute. then hit the power button again and it should poewr back up. If this doesn' t work. iyou said hte battery light flashes so the problem isnt the battery..the problem might be hte ac power adapter..if you have a warranty this would be a good time to call them. Try the power cycle first though this fixes the problems lots of the time
