Can you take out your battery and plug in the power? if it works, i suspected it's a battery faulty. if not please make sure to charge up your battery up to 100% then boot up your machine normally.

Try unplugging the laptop. Then once you've unplugged the laptop remove the battery. With the laptop unplugged and battery removed, hold the power button for 10 seconds. Replace the battery and the power cord and see if the computer boots.

Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.

After down loading music player went off won,t recharge


This player is effectively destroyed by using it on a computer that runs either Windows Media Player 11 or Vista. You can try doing a repair in Philips Device Manager, but this is very nearly an obsolete mp3 player.

Short Battery Charge


Hello Dave2794875,

According to manufacturer specifications the NiMH rechargeable batteries should provide about 12 hours of operating time assuming a 90/5/5 operating cycle (90% standby, 5% receive, and 5% transmit). Theoretically, decreasing the volume can help somewhat but should have a minimal effect.

If you are only seeing two hours of standby time then you are definitely not getting the specified amount of time. This could be indicative of a problem with the charger or the battery pack or both.

Using disposable alkaline AAA batteries, you should see an increase in operating time because alkaline batteries have more capacity and last longer then rechargeable batteries. However, if yu do a lot of operating the cost of disposable AAAs can add up fast. For most users the rechargeable batteries are much less expensive in the long run. If you only use the radio occasionally then alkaline batteries are the way to go.

Hope this helps,
Ken
