Question about Dell XPS One Desktop

1 Answer

Will not turn on

It acts like it is coming on and then it shuts off and repeats it self over and over again. this started after I came in to use (was on sleep mood) than a big box came up and files lost and press F12. I did and than it came on put was making a very funny noise so I turned it off and then turn it back on and now it is doing what i said in the first sentence. Also when it shut off the printer was still on and that usually goes off when the computer does.

    I tried what you suggested but it did not work. Now I can only turn on the computer with the remote but it does not stay on long. It still comes on all and than off. It only comes on for less than a minute.

    ok let me know how it goes so that I can help you further.

    Thank you.

    I think it might be related to the power supply or maybe something with
    the actual board since it is going off and not restarting. It must be
    a hardware fault. When this happens what is present on the screen. is
    there a microsoft windows logo ?

I have a WS-65907 tv, it wont turn on


Mitsubishi self check: MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and two blinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Fuel pump relay & fuel pump


when you turn the key on the pump should run to purge the system . so now you have fuel pressure for starting. this stage lasts about 10 seconds then the fuel pump doesnt turn on again till the computer see's oil pressure then turns the pump on. if the inertia switch has been activated it wont send the first amount of fuel.

Overload


No, one of your speakers is damaged (could be an amp channel went bad, but speaker is more likely). Unplug all spkrs, then plug one in and see if it acts normal when turned up. Repeat this until all speakers are hooked up or the culprit spkr is found.
