Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S5831 Notebook
Frigidaire PLHS69EESSN side by side aprox 5 yrs old Plastic water dispenser paddle snapped off. I replaced with new one after looking at a step by step video. I was sure to first unplug fridge and was careful to discharge any static electricity first just in case. I installed the paddle without any problem. When I put it back together, I plugged the ribbon back into the control board and slid down the two white locking slides for a straight and secure ribbon connection. BUT I was not 100% sure what way the control board side of the ribbon was suppose to face!!! When I plugged the fridge back in, nothing happened. i.e. No button lights lit, no water, no ice, no changes at all. Because it was apparently facing the white plastic coated part of the ribbon connector, I figure no harm- no foul. So I next unplugged fridge and turned the ribbon over to the other side and plugged it back into the dispenser control board (the board that attaches the buttons). When I plugged fridge back in, most of the control lights lit up this time BUT THE ICE MAKER AUGER IS SPINNING with the freezer door closed, and would not stop unless I opened the freezer door! Also, the water dispenser would NOT activate....so no water. Also, the lights for the water and for the ice dispensers would stay on no matter what I did. The fridge otherwise would still make ice and cool normally. If I un-attach the ribbon from either board, the auger stops spinning and the dispenser lights go off. After a lot of online reading I found others that had same problem after replacing the water paddle. Most would fix by replacing the ribbon. Others would fix by replacing the control board. One person said he had to replace the power board to fix. I replaced the ribbon as most had done, but it did not help. I decided to get a repair tech with 30 years exp look at it. He said it was the first time he has seen this problem. He called the manufacturer troubleshoot phone number. He explained everything over the phone and they told him to replace the ribbon, AND the power board, AND the control board!. Now my DIY water paddle replacement will probably be another $400 or $500! (He will give me a price in a day or two). I already paid $80 for the paddle and $10 for the ribbon, and $89 service charge to diagnose. The tech took out the entire water/ice part and did not see anything hung-up etc. He also tested the micro switch and said it was fine My question.... I know that elec parts can not be returned if the attempted install does not work, but do you think it is necessary to replace BOTH boards and ribbon? This is turning into a big expense, and could really get out of hand.... and what if replacing ALL parts still does not fix it! Is there any way to safely just replace ONE board without risking blowing out the other board that it is connected to? Any ideas on how I should proceed without having to mortgage the house to fix this cheap plastic paddle fiasco? Thanks.

SOURCE: Power light blinking
That is because either you screen is dead(test by connecting a exteral monitor) or you motherboard is dead and I have been seeing many dead motherboards as of late

Insert your Windows XP DVD in the drive, start up the PC. After it loads up and asks if you want to install or repair, hit 'R' for repair. This will kick you into the C: prompt. Type chkdsk /r for repair. It should take about 30 minutes. I have repaired about 10 computers with this in the last 6 months. (usually after a blue-screen error) It may be due to the BIOS needing a new update. Check for that at your PC Manufacturer's "Downloads & Updates" section. and follow the BIOS update procedure.
