    I've seen this happen when someone tried to install softpack 3. Any chance you had done that?

Ok when I had that problem it eventually quit working altogether.

How long have you had that laptop? I was told by HP that certain dv9000 models have Bad motherboards leading me to believe yours might be going. I recommend going to hp.com and going to support and talking to a HP Technician to see if this is truly the case and if it is get a box there to ship it in and get it fixed.

I had to send mine in when my motherboard went on me.

Tv shuts off, when turned back on, the green light keeps blinking and tv wont come back on. if you leave off for a few min. the tv will come back on. then the tv will shut off again after a few min.


One of two things...first hold power button while you hold the up button on your remote, this will reset your tv to manufacturer's settings....you could have sleep timer on.....if this does not work, you have to replace the lamp, my tv did the same thing and it happened to be the lamp. Hope this helps, good luck

The unit suddenly stopped working; contact is plugged in but on-button does not work. No lights on, it does not seem the unit has power.


I faced a similar problem with Mine a couple of days ago.
Try these below
1. Keep the unit plugged to the wall socket (and charge). Green light (indicating charging) may not glow. It doesnt matter. Keep it on for a few hours.
2. Then try to turn on the unit.
3. If it still doesnt turn on, fold the unit and keep it aside for a few mins (say 10 mins).
4. Open it and then try to turn it on.

Mine worked with step 4.

See if this helps.
regards,
Lakshmi

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!
