Amber light on then a while turns green but wont boot


1) Switch the system on. Can you tell me if the power button is flashing amber or a solid amber? Please also tell me if you notice any diagnostics LEDs staying lit - these are labelled 1,2,3 and 4 and are near the front headphone sockets
2) Please remove all peripherals at the back of the system and switch the system on. Does this affect the power button LED or diagnostic LEDs
3) Have you added any components to the system e.g. video cards, sound cards etc...
4) Please open the system and remove the following components:
a) Power and data cables from hard drives and optical drivesb) Any PCI/PCI-Express expansion cardsc) All memory from the systemd) The system fan
5) With the above removed, please reconnect the power cord to the back of the system and switch the system on. Please make a note of what happens with the power button LED and the diagnostic LEDs
6) If there are no changes to the power button LED or diagnostic LEDs, please remove the power cord from the back of the system and remove the following components:
a) I/O panel cableb) CMOS battery
7) With the I/O panel cable and CMOS battery removed, please connect the power cord to the back of the system. The system should automatically try to switch on. Do you hear any beeps from the system? If so, can you tell us exactly what you hear?

Green light on my power supply stays lit after unplugging


Usually the light will time out after the capacitor has drained. Your machine is getting a bit old , your PSU may be the problem. If you plug it in and push the on/off button and it blinks, fans spin and shuts down, it's most likely the PSU. Look for a in-line fuse on the Motherboard, if blown, replace. Look at the motherboard closely for damaged components, capacitors, etc.

try removing all the cards from the expansion slots and remove the ram sticks. disconnect the drive cables from the board but dont touch the cpu or power connectors. Now hit the button. If nothing changes, probable board fault. If it now boots up and starts beeping ( which it will when no ram sticks installed) shut it down and reinstall each drive connector, ram stick and card one at a time booting between each item. when the faulty item is connected, the board will stop booting and you can replace that item. Many things can also cause this. Bad connections to ram sticks and video cards, damaged usb port connections, failed cpu's, failed psu's etc.. You may still have to take the machine to a professional repairer to have the problem diagnosed.

I think the previous post applies to resetting the drum light after replacing the drum.

You need to reset the toner end-of-life condition.

  1. Open the Front cover
  2. Press and hold the GO button
  3. Power ON the printer while continuing to hold the GO button
  4. All 4 LED's will light up and then 3. Once the 3 LED's are lit, release the GO button
  5. Press the GO button 2 times. This will cause the
    LED's to light solid
  6. With the LED's lit solid, press the GO button 5 times
  7. At this point the Paper light should be blinking. Toner end-of-life has been reset
  8. Close the front cover.

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
