Try taking the plastic off where the power button is and press the power button that way.

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

Toshiba L655s5065RD wont start , only sign of life is blinking orange light


Okay, what does that light indicate? (hard drive activity, power plugged in, battery, etc). It most likely indicates a faulty power supply or damaged battery unit.

I have never found hibernation to work successfully.
Disable hibernation if you ever get it started.
Try reading the manual on how to restart for hibernation, press "spacebar", "enter" or something.

Will not turn on. Toshiba 2060cds


I am having a hard time finding the manual for this older laptop, but, there is always a power button somewhere on the laptop itself, on the side, front, top of the keyboard, push everything and anything till you find it. Just plugging it in will not turn it on.
