Question about Dell W2607C Television
When I attempted to manually power on my Dell TV, I noticed the power button was flashing in a sequence of 3 flashes at a time in an amber color. I have never seen this color before there. I did some research and found that if the light was a solid amber color, the TV was in safe mode. This is not the case with my TV, hence the flashing amber light. We have unplugged the tv and disconnected every connection to the TV, and plugged it back in, only to have the power button flash amber and will not allow me to turn TV on. Any ideas?
Never buy Dell again, I know I won't.

Usually this indicates major hardware failure inside the TV. The most common issues are a failed power board, failed convergence board, or a failed backlight. Any of of these issues is unfortunately very expensive to repair. I would check if the unit is still under warranty first, and of course claim it on that if it is. If it is not, if you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.
1) Your power supply has failed
2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.
3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.
I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.
