Sounds like the power management circuit has blown,  If this is under warranty send it back to manufacturer for repair.

We have a toshiba 72 dlp tv. We were in the living room in which tv is in we heard a pop. When we went to turn the tv on we heard sound but no picture and the yellow light on the front of the tv blinks 16...


Good day!!!


Your color wheel is clapped out. The part is not directly replaceable - they seal it in the light engine and won't sell spares. A rebuilt engine for this set will probably run you between 230 and 270 USD. Replacing it is a cinch if you can get another engine for it.

Won't turn on. Battery is plugged in and lit. n


Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.

If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.

Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.

My toshiba satellite A45S121 is having problems. I can not turn on the computer the power charging led is blinking yellow. Any ideas on how to solve the problem?


I'm not sure if you've tried this yet, but there's a possibility that the power is too low for it to run and still has enough left to blink the hibernation light. Try charging it maybe?

When i turn it on the light goes green then it goes yellow and off


Are you sure it doesn't turn yellow then blink red?

Yellow light and off: Power supply and board might have been overheated, pulling the gpu and cpu off the main board.

Red blinking light, board is overheated and the gpu and cpu has pulled from the board.

Both are easy fixes for a professional and should cost you no more then 100 for power supply and fix or 50 for the fix. That's what I charge. Anyone who charges more is ripping you off. It is even better if you can try this yourself, but reheating the board yourself is dangerous if is done wrong and can leave you with an incapacitated Playstation.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

When you turn the unit on it goes to a green light then beeps twice and goes to a flashing red light?


This is an overheating problem.
Let it sit for about a day and then try it out.

Make sure it has ATLEAST 4 inches of open space all around it and is not near any heat-making devices, it makes enough heat on its own.
Also make sure it's not on carpet.



If it ever starts to immediately shut-off, blink green yellow and then repeating red with 3 beeps, you have the Yellow Light of Death.
This is a console killer.

Repost as a different question if it turns into the YLOD.

Battery light blinking red during charging


Dell or Panasonic? Your post has both listed.

If the blinking light on a Dell is yellow or amber or orange (somewhere in that color range) and continues to blink the entire time it is plugged into AC power (wall outlet) and when you unplug it from the wall the laptop immediately dies .... then you battery is dead and needs replaced.

If the blinking light stops after a while (perhaps a minute?) and then turns green while plugged into AC power, then it is successfully charging - or so it thinks.

When you unplug it from the wall, does it stay up and running?
If it runs, it's OK - just ignore the light and plan on getting a new battery one day, start browsing now. :)
If it dies immediately upon unplugging, then your battery is dead and needs replaced.

There is a yellow blinking light on my Black jack


Return to the carrier for warranty repair.

If you are out of warranty there are some options you can choose from

1. Get repaired
2. New phone
3. external charging source

The external battery charger runs about 20 dollars on ebay with an extra battery.
