Question about Dell W2607C Television

Amber Light blinking on power switch

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?

    exact same problem. if I could find a wiring diagram I would check an internal fuse or something. Dell had a problem with the W2606C that they are replacing now with this model W2607C. But it seems to have the same problem. I like the LAW SUIT idea. This is crazy.

27 mgz oscillator on the back of the main board. Try resoldering it, or replace it.

    Bad Main Board. Check the 3A surface mount fuse, R1U01. If it is bad, replace QU01, QU03 &UU00. Their part numbers are Si4944 (two of them) & NCP5422 (on the back side). You can get these at DigiKey for about $10. Of course change the fuse, too. You should also change out the three 22uf caps by the Si4944's.

    Hi, I searched on but there is a lot of 3A fuses, 200W to 600W, different voltages... which is the good one? Same thing about the 27mhz oscillator, I don't find the good one... Thanks.

SOURCE: When I attempted to manually

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.

Flashing amber light

Hi, on most Dells a flashing amber light on the power button indicates a problem with the PSU or a short on the main power rail, if this is the case you should have 2 flashing lights as well, 1 & 3.

Dell Power Edge 2900 - amber and Red A light on tape Drive

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.

Del 320 optiplex orange lite blinks won't boot up

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.

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.

Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

I'm not clear about the blinking amber light you are referring to. Is it on the computer or the monitor.
I checked Dell's web site for the service manual for this computer model, & found this document:

If the blinking amber light is on the monitor, check the connection between it & the computer itself. Make sure the cable is not damaged & that it does not have any broken pins in the socket.

Dell dimension 5150 blinking amber lights

I have similar problem these days. After normal shutting down the PC, it can not be powered up again, the amber light blinks. A temp solution for my case is by doing these steps:

1. leave all monitor, network, keyboard and mouse etc. connected
2. disconnect the power, wait until green light and amber light dim.
3. pop up the CMOS battery, then put back in (better to check its remaining voltage, if not good, change a new one)
4. power amber light flash shorter and lighter
5. disconnect any USB connections like keyboard and mouse,
6. immediately connect keyboard and mouse back into USB ports
7. my pc powers up at this point, all green lights shining. Except it displays CMOS setup warnings, give me options to click either F1 or F2
8. I click F1, it goes into normal login XP

The only problem is I could not shutdown PC again, if I do, then I have to repeat 1-8. I have to use "Standby" instead, which I usually do.

GX620 Powre Buttion Flashing Yellow

the amber light flashing is a power issue, this is from the Dell Manual :
If the power light is blinking amber - The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
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 (see page 73).

I suggest you unplug the machine completely from the powersupply wait a few seconds and plug it back in, sometimes this will help with power issues.
