Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I turn on the computer at the mains everything seems as normal, although when I switch on the hard drive.. the L.E.D flashes red and green, and the monitor L.E.D goes from green to orange instead it should be green. The hard drive sounds like its running as normal. The problem began with the system freezing and crashing, please help

My playstation turns on and the green light comes on but it turns to flashing red in about three seconds. It never comes up on the screen


It could be a failing hard drive...Try to remove the hard drive from the system and restart it without the hard drive if you can at least get to the main menu then it is your hard drive that is causing the problem.

Photo 1290 Changing ink cartridge


Hi there,

You may have to reset your printer, for when the green an red are flashing. Please do the following in order to reset the printer;
1-switch off printer itself
2-switch off at socket for 20 seconds
3-hold down both black buttons on front
switch on at mains
4-switch on printer itself
green and red flash together
5-now switch off at mains and leave for 3 seconds
6-while holding down both front buttons again, switch on at mains
both green and red flash together so release
7-quickly hold down the left botton, the one with the scroll icon above it.

Hold this until it resets itself, - the print head will re
charge and it will be obvious.

Restting by unpluggin rather than turning off at mains tends not to work.

This must help you as it worked for me.

Regards,

The players red and green light keeps flashing and wont come on


THIS CAN BE SOLVED BY CHANGING THE MAIN POWER SUPPLY BOARD OF YOUR DVD PLAYERS. The main problem should be the Main Capacitor in the circuit. The safer side is to change the whole board.

Solid red light, flashes green when i turn it on then it dies.


Pretty much the only thing worth trying is starting the PS3 without the hard drive.

If it doesn't work it's more than likely a GPU problem that only Sony can fix.

Either way check out my guide here for tips and details.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.

External drive seems to freeze up everything, including desktop when USB plugged in


Do not panic. The problem is with the controller in the external case and not the HD itself. Open the case and remove the hard drive. Bring it to circuit city or best buy and invest in a new HIGH QUALITY external case for your hard drive. An associate at either of these stores will be able to tell you the exact case you will need.(SATA,E-IDE,IDE,ect...) DO NOT BUY the cheapo $10 cases you can get on the net. There is a reason some cases cost more then others and the main reason is the quality of the internal components and the durability of them. Install Your HD in your new case(very simple) and you will be up and running in no time.
I Hope this helps you out and you appreciate my help enough to remember to rate me FixYa when you are all fixed up.
Feel free to contact me with any of your other technical needs,
as always my help is free...This is my hobbie...

Light doesn't turn blue at all


Plug it into another computer if possible, clear ALL files on it.
You must of been sending something to it when you flicked the switch, they would normally go off straight away.

(Backup on the other computer first)

If this does not work then you may want to see if you can see a usb stick in your USB ports. If you can it's a fault with the harddrive, nothing else you can do.

Flashing red and green light in xbox


You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.
