Fan error means that one of the fans inside the computer has failed and is no longer working causing the system to overheat. to solve this you must replace the fan that isn't working. you should try going to your local computer hardware store and ask them to fix the problem.

THINKPAD G41 Fan Error


Hi

Thank you for your query

You are right when the laptop first starts up it is the fan, if you are getting error message then it is the heat sink (fan on top of cpu) that will need to be replaced.

I would only recommend changing it if you know how as getting to the motherboard is quite tricky to say the least

Please dont listen to the geeks at bestbuy, they obviously dont know what they are talking about

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

Fan Error


You may have a faulty fan, check to fan, it should spin freely, if not the fan needs to be replaced. The fan and heatsink assenble may also be clogged with dust, remove the dust and vacuum to clean.

Optoma RD50 TV which shuts down on #1 fan failure


This could be a variant of, or a newer (or older) version of the "DMD fan failure" message.

Symptoms I had are, I stop hearing a fan when the message is displayed.
Then the temp LED keeps flashing RED until I either try to turn the TV on again,
Or turn MAIN power off/on again. BUT it repeats when I try to turn the TV on.
The picture appears normal until this happens ( about 15 sec.)

The solution is to FORCE a normal shutdown by hitting the TV off button
before the message appears.
You should see the power LED flashing RED/GREEN (cool down) and then RED (standby).
