It sounds like an Automatic Self Test. You would need to consult the power supply manufacturer's handbook. For example see a video from Dell here: http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/04/servicetag/3MJ0HV1

Two reasons I could think of

Low toner.

Try removing the toner cartridge and powering the unit on.

While unit is plugged in, re-install cartridge.

I have a sharp 37" lcd tv,model # lc37sb24u. no pix or sound, power lite comes on about 10 seconds then power and opc lites alternate on and off. thanks RON


This problems very common in Sharp LCD tvs.The Tuner signal board have problems,every times the power LED,OPC LED lites up,just push the power button on again,wait see if the LCD backlight lite up and works,not the Power lite and the OPC lite LEDS flashes again.You,just have to push the power button again,sometimes u have to push the power button at least 6 or 7 times to get the Power LED stable,and then LCD backlight,come on than the tv work.Not sure,but if the Power and OPC lites keep flashing,after u pushes the power button at lest 10 or 12 times,and the LCD backlight dosen't come on and the tv don't work.I think,it time to change the Tuner board is completely dead.I have a Sharp LCD tv, I do this everytimes pushing the power button at least 3 or 4 than the power LED stable,and the LCD backlight come on than the tv work.Not a plaw in the power supply like those capacitors in many LCD models tvs,but some included Sharp Tvs is the Tuner signal board is not very good in design,use the tv awhile the Tuner signal board have problems recieving the power to it Tuner board components.

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.

Reference the Power LED States
Dell OptiPlex and Dimension computers and Dell Precision workstations have incorporated the use of the multi-state power button LED as a hardware status indicator. The power button LED illuminates in two different colors and can also blink, which allows for indication of five different system operation states. (Table 1)
LED State
System State
Steady Yellow The power supply is functioning, but the system is not processing data. This may indicate an issue with the system board or CPU. Blinking Yellow The power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This may indicate a power supply problem. Steady Green This generally indicates that the system is functioning normally. However, if problems are detected with installed components, the system may initiate a beep code. Blinking Green The system is in a Standby ACPI state. Off The system power is off.

Problem with my dell dimension 4600


Does the hdd lite come on? cd lite come on? The blinking lite on the power is an indication the bios or power supply is having trouble. strip the unit of all devices except hd, kb and use the vga built in video. Remove the ram also. restart and see what happens.
