    Hi Alan Levett, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Need Model number and Operating system to make a better diagnosis.

    Thanks for all the responses. Being new to the town, I contacted a dealer from whom I recently purchased a 'pre-used' laptop, and he very kindly ran a quick test for me, pronouncing the PSU as DEAD.

    Back home, I removed the lid and found that it is was a 'suicide' case by an electrolytic. Thus the PSU is deemed NWR.

    Again, many thanks

    Alan

1991 honda accord turns over wont start . when key in second postion no lights on dash exept for battery light


blown fuse.
the CEL lamp must glow, or the ECU is dead. (no power)
the CEL is very important lamp telling you the ECU has power
and it thinks(sic) that it is ok, (basics)
if the lamp is burned out, it become hard to work the ECU.
as this ECU flashes codes for errors,
check all fuse. in both boxes.

Screen black. Power light on unit flashes red slowly. Power light on switching adaptor power supply flashed green slowly.


Sounds like the battery might be low which would cause the red flashing light and dark screen. Let it charge for a little bit then try turning it on again. If it still does it with the power supply plugged in, make sure there isn't a lens cover on it, and switch modes or try getting into the menu to see if you can get anything to come up. If that still doesn't work then it sounds like there might be a problem with the camera.

On Power on Green light flashes slowly a few times as it always has, then it starts flashing about every second. After a turn red


Hi,

Your power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics’ and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
Hope this helpout.....

Our machine has stopped working....the alarm light is on and flashing slowly so we have gone thru all the steps in the book to find out what is wrong. When we turn the machine on, the green lite goes on...


If red light slowly flashing....Please check brewunit,dregdraw, door and coffeebean lid is properly in .
If flashing fast..means ventilate(prime the machine)
If itis steady..no water in the tank or time to empty the drip tray.or the more serious case the grinder is not working or not self testing.
