    Did you check the internal cabling (Tight fitting connectors) and also if you have an voltage output on the plug that connects to the motherboard?

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

Power failure for HP Pavilion A6600F


>> I might have to test an alternative power supply to rule out the existing power supply.

That should be your next step. Just connect the "temporary" power-supply to the motherboard and the fan on top of the CPU.
Don't connect to the floppy-drive, the CD-drive, the disk-drive.

If you remove all the RAM, and start it, does it "beep" (to complain about the lack of RAM) ???? If not, then the motherboard (or the power-supply) is the problem.

I replaced the video card and it still will not boot up.


IF A&B are yellow and C&D are green it indicates a memory error.

If A&B are yellow and C&D are off then it indicates that the computer is in sleep or reduced power mode.

What was your symptoms before you replaced the video card? Sometimes if the power supply is weak or bad or you have a bad motherboard then you get no video output. Check your cpacitors on your mobo for leaking or swelling. Let us know what you find out.

Won't boot


1. STEP: Ensure Correct Power Button Is Used and Is Not Sticking or Broken. If the power button remains depressed during the power-on attempt, the computer immediately powers off, mimicking a "no power" symptom. Ensure the button is not being held down too long or binding against the bezel or chassis. If necessary, remove the front cover to press the button directly.
2. or else...STEP: Check the Power Button LED on the Front of the Computer (on Blinking yellow)
Initial state of LED at power up.
Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed. Look at the diagnostic LEDs for further information. or lese..

3. STEP: Restart the Computer Using the Power Button.Press and hold the power button down until the computer powers off. This should not require more than 10 - 15 seconds.Press the power button to turn on the computer.

*Unplug the power cable from the back of the system. *Press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds to discharge remaining power.*Inspect the voltage selector setting on the back of the machine (Figure 1). Ensure that the voltage select is set in the correct position for the region the in which the system is operating: For Europe and Asia, the voltage setting should be 230V.In North America, Mexico, parts of Central and South America, and parts of the Caribbean, the voltage setting should be 115V.*Plug the power cord back into the back of the system.*Turn on the power.
STEP: Try a Different Known-Good Wall Outlet.
STEP: Remove All External Devices. Turn the system off.
Unplug everything from the front and back of the system except for the power cord or AC adapter, including: keyboard mouse monitor speakers printers scanners USB devices handheld PDAs external Zip or CD-R drives joysticks/game pads, etc
Attempt to turn the system on.
STEP: Check the Power Button LED on the Front of the Computer

Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.

Computer won't turn on


A flashing yellow power LED is an indication of a failure in the power supply. If under warranty, Dell should be replacing it. If out of warranty, then a 400/450 Watt ATX power supply should resolve the issue.

CISCO 2600 Router Troubleshooting


This is the indicator configuration for the 2600, if the lights are yellow there is a problem.

The following indicator LEDs provide power, activity, and status information:
POWER (green)—Lit when power is on
RPS (green)
Off—No redundant power supply (RPS) is present
Blinking—System is booted, RPS is present, RPS failure
Continuous on—System is booted, RPS is present, no RPS failure
ACTIVITY (green)
Slow, steady blinking—System is booting
Blinks during system activity, such as interrupts and packet transfers
I suggest going to Cisco.com for full documentation on this product.

Diagnostic Indicator


Beep codes and power LED status are pre-post errors. Usually beep codes indicate a problem with a memory module. Power LED is solid green for normal operation. Solid or blinking Amber color power LED indicates a power distribution problem.
