    My brother has the same computer and the same thing has happened. I think it might have overheated and damaged something. He accidentally left the cabinet he keeps it in closed and he said it just shut off. I don't know if it is the power supply or the motherboard that was damaged( I am hoping power supply)

Woops -the blinking amber light of doom is a common fault on dells -
usually a solid amber is the Power supply while a blinking one indicates Motherboard problems. If machine is still under warranty dell will replace it.
If not then it will cost you to have them replaced.

Hi..I own a sony bravia 40 inch LED color tv model number kdl-40ex600...i've only had it for about 5 months now and it was working fine..up until I was watching a movie and the picture went completely out....


one of the power boards inside the tv has gone, which is why its blinking 5 times, which one it is i cant tell without using a multimeter on the tv. IF its only 5 months old you should ring up who you got it from and get them to fix it, as it will cost quite a bit to repair.

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on


Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.

Laptop wont turn on at all!


try sensing if your cpu fan is working, it is under the power switch side, you can see small exhaust slots, put your hand beside it and feel if some air is coming out when you turn on your pc.

When you turn you pc on and only orange light blinks, it means that no power was getting into it, it blinks because no electrical power is coming from your power adapter and the battery is drained. Check your power adapter cable, this is the very cause why your pc is shutting down. usually the wire from the adapter to the pc is faulty.
