Question about Vizio L37 Television

1 Answer

Vizio L37hdtv10a fails to fully turn on

Symptoms, when power button is pressed status led changes from amber to green for ~1 second then reverts to amber. The back light never turns on. Now I know I have a good power supply, I checked that its supplying 24V to both inverters, and 12Vand 5V to the main board. I think I have to replace the main board(DTV, mother, I/O depending on who you ask) its a 3370-0072-0150. But the question is it the main board or is the main board just failing to start because an inverter is blown(this tv used to be a demo unit at sam's club).

You will have to isolate the main board and Inverters.
Unplug the inverters and turn on the set.
If it "turns on" then try re-connecting each inverter seperately to see if only one is causing the problem.

My unit indicates a system error due to amber LED was lit whenever I press the power button. I tried to press the remind button in the operator panel but no LED will lit to indicate what maybe the problem....


Interesting, sound like a failure of the button because most system either work with a greeg lit up led or fail with an amber or orange lit or flashing.
In this instance the amber could mean something has gone bad but the fact you can hold the button and have it boot up is strange.

Does the led turn green after holding the button for a while to let the machine boot?

regards,
mike

MacBook Air 11" won't power


1. Verify AC power presence with MagSafe LED indicating on or charge state.
2. Verify battery as being partly charged, with orange/amber LED on MagSafe power connector.
3. Reset SMC
Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC) The System Management Controller (SMC) is a chip on the logic board that controls all power functions. If the computer is experiencing any power issue, such as not starting up, not displaying video, sleep issues, or fan noise issues, resetting SMC may resolve it. To reset SMC: 1. If computer is on, turn it off by choosing Shut Down from the Apple menu. 2. Connect power adapter to computer and to a working power source. 3. On built-in keyboard, press (left-side) Shift-Control-Option along with power button just once. Important: Use Shift-Control-Option keys on left side of keyboard. Note: When the LED on the MagSafe connector is orange/amber, resetting the SMC will change it to green for a few seconds, indicating that SMC was correctly reset. 4. Wait 5 seconds and press power button to start computer. Note: If bottom case is removed, you can alternately reset SMC by disconnecting both power adapter and main battery, and holding down power button for 5 seconds.

Power Adapter Issues 1. Connect AC adapter's MagSafe connector to the computer. The LED on the connector should be green or orange/amber. 2. Verify power cord or duckhead is firmly attached to AC adapter. Check that duckhead is not damaged. 3. Verify AC power source is supplying AC power. 4. Check for dirty or stuck pins on the MagSafe connectors, both on the adapter and the computer. 5. Reset SMC by pressing the (left) Shift-ControlOption(Alt) keys along with the power button once.

Quantum 3213. the door opener opens neighbors and visa versa


You can follow these instructions to change the code of yours. Might work for you.

NOTE: You must change the transmitter's code before programming the transmitter to the motor head unit.
The following steps describe the process to change a Quantum™ and Classicdrive™ security code.
This process only works fro transmitters with a GREEN LED and a "U" in their model number, such as "02-3047 2B U" or "02-3047 2B UH".
Changing the Transmitter Code
1. Press and hold the button on the transmitter that you want to change. The GREEN LED will flash once and then turn off.
2. Continue to hold the button until the GREEN LED begins to flash (approx. 10 seconds).
3. When the GREEN LED flashes, immediately release the button and then immediately press and hold the same button again. The GREEN LED will now come on steady.
4. Continue to hold the button until the GREEN LED begins to flash (approx. 5 seconds).
5. When the GREEN LED flashes, immediately release the button.
6. The code for this button has now been changed to a new randomly generated code. Do not push the button again until instructed in "Programming Transmitter to Power Head Unit".
7. You must now re-program this transmitter to the motor head unit. See "Programming Transmitter to Power Head Unit".
Programming Transmitter to Power Head Unit
1. Press the PROGRAM button located on the garage door motor head unit once. The PROGRAM STATUS light on the motor head unit will turn on and remain lit for one minute, indicating that it is ready to learn the Transmitter code.
2. Press the same button on transmitter as you did in "Changing Transmitter's Code" above. The PROGRAM STATUS light will turn off indicating a successful learn.
3. Press the same button on the Transmitter once more to operate the door.
4. If you are unsuccessful in programming the transmitter to the motor head unit of if the button does not operate the door or if you wish to program another button to operate a different door, you must change the transmitter's code.
Battery
If the LED does not turn on when button is pressed, replace battery.

Internal led of ML350 server is glowing.......how do i resolve it?


Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.
