No pic or sound. the stand by light blinks green then the lamp light blinks red untill it turns off all toghther. the lamp is broken i just want to know if that is the only problem or if the driver may...


Hi,

Flashing green standby led light at the front panel is an indication that the unit waiting for the lamp to turn on. Since the lamp led light flashes, the unit sensed it already burned out.
Faulty lamp driver has a different error code which is "flashing of the standby light 5 times".
Your unit will back to normal operation again after the lamp replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Dell case 4600 replaced mother board with gigabyte but front power wiring needs different connection plz show diagram


Pinout (Wiring diagram) for the GigaByte GA-8I865GVME motherboard's Front Panel header,

(Looks like a 1 but it is an 'Eye'. GA-8 i 865GVME ),
{The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the Front Panel cables (Wires) connect to, is the Front Panel header }

;Motherboard Manual download page,

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1933&dl=1#manual

Look under the heading - English
Look across from English, and click on the country name nearest yours.

This is a PDF file. After you click on the server country it may take 30 seconds or more, to see the first page come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
(Took approximately 30 seconds just now for me. Medium speed DSL connection)

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
Go to Page 6.

Processor to the top, Ram Memory slots to the right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner.
(F_PANEL)

It is two rows of pins that are laid out horizontally. It is parallel to the bottom outside edge of the motherboard.

Go to Page 22.
F_PANEL (Front Panel Jumper)

The pins are numbered Even on the top, and Odd on the bottom.

Starting at the Left side of the motherboard going to the Right, for the TOP row of pins;

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20

Starting at the Left side of the motherboard going to the Right, for the BOTTOM row of pins;

Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light. (On the computer case. Not on the motherboard)
(Pin 2 is for the Positive { + } wire.
If the LED light is dim, switch the wires around )

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Plastic - Power On button assembly has the Power On switch inside it)

C) Pins 10 and 12 are not used. In fact there probably isn't any pins.

D) Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20 are used for an internal 'speaker'. The 'speaker' is used so you can hear any BIOS Error Codes. (The computers way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it)

E) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is active in use.
(Pin 1 is for the Positive wire)

F) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF USED.

G) Pin 9 is NC. Not Connected


To Add:
1) If the Dell Dimension 4600 power on LED light has 3 wires, it is a dual color LED.
Only use two of the wires, and one color.
(Follow the wires to the LED light. One is a Ground wire { - }, and the other two are positive wires for the dual colors of the LED )

2) The Front USB headers are on Page 24

Make sure your Power Supply has a 4-pin ATX +12 volt power cable. Plugs into the square connector on the motherboard, to the bottom Left corner of the Processor socket.
It is power for the Processor.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

CAUTION!!

For a time period Dell was really @nal about being a Proprietary computer manufacturer.
This means they wanted THEIR parts used in THEIR computers.
I don't know if your Dimension 4600 falls into this category, or not.

They switched the pins around in the ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard.
Go to Page 18.
Look at the connector that has 20 socket holes. (Two columns of 10 socket holes)

The Dell Dimension 4600 also has a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, on the motherboard,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/techov.htm#1138239

Scroll the page down a little, look at the illustration for the DC Power Connector P1
See how the power and color of the wires are labeled for each pin in the connector?

Orient the connector by the lock tab on the side of it. Now compare the color chart here for the wires in a standard 20-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

A) Orange colored wires are 3.3 Volts
B) Red wires are 5 Volts
C) Yellow wires are 12 Volts
D) ALL Black wires are Ground wires
(ALL are DC voltage)

Guess what would happen if a 12 volt wire is connected to a pin that uses 3.3 Volts, or 5 Volts?
Yep, lets the 'Smoke' out of the motherboard.

Guess what would happen if a 3.3 , 5, or 12 volt wire is plugged into a pin that is a Ground wire?
Same thing. Will fry the motherboard. Possibly the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, and so on, also.

Check before you plug in, and turn the computer on.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

I ahve a beeping sound that is coming from my garage door opener.


If you have an opener with battery backup this may help. BBU stands for 'battery back up.'

This is battery related. On top of your unit is a battery pack with three colored led lights. You can tell what is going on by looking at these. This information is in your manual or here it is.
GREEN LED: All systems are normal. A solid LED light indicates the batteries are fully charged. A flashing LED indicates the batteries are being charged. NOTE: Batteries do not have to be fully charged to operate the motor unit. YELLOW LED: The motor unit has lost power and is operating off of the BBU. A solid LED with beep, sounding approximately every 2 seconds, indicates the motor unit is activating the door and is operating off of the BBU. A flashing LED with beep, sounding every 30 seconds, indicates batteries are low. Once the power is restored the BBU will recharge. This is indicated by a flashing GREEN LED. RED LED: An error has been detected and the BBU will automatically shut off. The BBU will attempt to restart by reconnecting to the batteries. If the error is still present it will shut itself off again. This process will repeat every 5 minutes or until the error has been resolved. This is used to prevent further draining of the batteries. If a red LED remains on when the power is restored, and is accompanied by a beep sounding every 30 seconds, please call for service.

Don't know how to setup wireless toshiba satellite pro 6100 pc notebook


Most Toshiba 6100s come standard with wireless cards installed. If you're unsure, just turn on the WiFI antenna switch (near its SD card slot) and see if the WiFi access LED lights up (the WiFi LED is the rightmost LED on the front of the unit) -- if it lights up, then you've got a stock Wireless card in your system.

Email me if you can't determine which card you have.

Need codes for rcr 460 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
Note: If you press an invalid key
during the Manual Code Search,
the remote does not respond and
the LED indicator light does not
blink. If you do not press a valid
Manual Code Search key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF,
GO BACK), the search times out
after two minutes. When the
search times out, the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off. The last
programmed code under that
component key is retained.
2. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED indicator
light turns on and remains on.
3. While holding the component
key down, press and hold the
ON·OFF key. The LED indicator
light turns off.
4. After holding down both keys
for three seconds, the LED
indicator light turns back on.
5. Release both keys. The LED
indicator light remains on.
Throughout the
programming of each key, be sure
to keep the remote pointed at the
IR sensor of the component you
are currently programming the
remote to control.
6. Press and release the ON·OFF key
repeatedly until your component
turns off. Each time you press the
ON·OFF key, the LED indicator
light blinks, and the next code in
the list is sent. This process
continues until all of the codes in
the Code Lists have been searched.
If your component turns off, you
have found the correct code. (If it
cycles through and the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off, all codes have been
searched. The Manual Code Search
method is exited.)


Press Stop when TV turns off.

5. Now release both the buttons – {the two LED lights should
come back on}
6. Get the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit and stand two metres away
from the SCR unit with the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit in your hand.
7. Remove the battery cover and fit the batteries.
8. The Red LED light on the SCR will now flash for approx. 7

The problem is not the relay. The unit is trying to start, but detecting a problem and shuting down again. Check the output transistors for a shorted condition.
