How do I fix my KDL55HX750? It will not turn on. No sound or picture. Just 3 blinking red lights. What should I do next?!?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Blinking codes details of many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Blinking lights


You say the "FORNT" lights blink and the system "Wont" start?
That is because the Hard Drive is not functional, or the Operating System is dysfunctional. Reinstall Windows... no other choices. If you can not install Windows, the drive is bad.

My lenovo G460 laptop doesn't turn on ?


Did you have exhausted the battery power? If so, maybe the laptop can't turn on as soon as you plug in the ac adapter, as you can try to let the laptop charged for a time and then turn on the laptop to see if every thing is well.

My computer beeps but does not start


Those beeps are telling you what is wrong. Most times it's the memory or video card.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.


Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.


Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Magnet near laptop issue


Your laptop is ancient, it is no way powerfull enough to run vista.
If the magnet was powerful it may have damaged the hard drive and other components.
I would not run anything later than windows 2000 on a 266mhz CPU.
You could try XP at a push.
Your drivers are available here.

Dell dimension 9200 series desktop does not start


Most DELL's I have seen with this condition it was either the motherboard or Power supply. If your mobo looks fine (see explanation below) then I would try another power supply first. Use one that has the same or greater output watts. I keep several old ones around for this purpose. If that does not solve it then you may have a failed motherboard. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. Be sure to look under the fan shroud also. The dead giveaway will be the fact that you are not getting anything after you change the PSU. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Also if you add a bunch of extra components without upgrading the power supply you can suffer underpowered situations and that can cause internal parts to fail. To eliminate some other stuff you could remove the memory and disconnect all the power plugs from the drives and then try to start it up. If it does not change the behavior at all (no beeps, no change in flashing lights) then you probably have motherboard issues. Make sure when disconnecting the memory chips (sticks) that you touch the metal on the inside of the case first to discharge static electricity. If it does change the behavior add 1 component or item back at a time to see what you can find out. Post back with what you find. And remember a bad PSU does not always mean no power, just not enough to run the computer. I disagree with the post by GUEST. If you are having Hard drive issues the amber light will not sit and blink at you. I don't know how many DELL's they have worked on, but most DELL's I fixed had 1 of those 2 problems. If mobo looks good then try a bigger (more output watts) power supply. If you have the 4 tiny A-B-C-D Diagnostic lights on the back, what state are they in (amber/green/off)? This may help us diagnose further.

It sounds to me like some of the cells in the battery has collapsed.

A 12 volt light doesn't use as much juice on the battery as when you boot up. When Mobo, Monitor, Harddrive etc etc. start up they all use a large start-up-current and if the battery cant sustain the amount of amp. they all need together, nothing happens.

This is called shadow-charge, the battery seems fine, but when it really needs to put out some power it collapses.

I think you should try to sniff up another battery and see if this one has the same problem.

Or perhaps investigate wether or not you still have some warranty left on the battery, to try to get a free replacement.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
