Question about Dell OptiPlex GX620 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Optiplex GX620. It worked fine yesterday. When I got in this morning, I noticed that the power light was blinking and amber color. I did a warm-boot and it did the same thing. I disconnected all the power sources for about 5 minutes and plugged everything back up and still, all I have is a blinking amber light. HELP! I am a teacher and I really need the information on my harddrive.

    The amber light is on the monitor or the computer itself?

Dell optiplex gx620 orange color on the sturt boton


A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Hi there!

A blinking amber/orange light on the power button of your Dell Optiplex means a hardware failure. If you know how to strip down your computer to basic component, then I suggest you turn on with only the motherboard, processor, memory and PSU. If you are not familiar with this, I suggest you bring the computer to a qualified technician.

Hope this helps

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.

I have a dell optiplex gx620 that won't turn on?!


Dell Optiplex GX620 has a failure power supply. A some of the capacitors inside it are poor quality :( .In this case is an emergency procedure to start power supply (ie. for backup) : make a temporary shortcut between green and black wire in main mo-bo connector (24 wires) , and use normal Power On button. When main fan starts remove temporary shortcut.
