    I need more info on this, does this mean your system doesn't come up? Did it ever?

  • HOchoa May 11, 2010

    Is it by the power supply ? if so the problem is most likely your Motherboard/Cpu/or Power Supply.

No I was not able to fix this problem and still need help with it. However I do not have a card to be able to pay for the answer. I am going to go ahead and unhook the computer put it in the closet and go back to using my phone and note pad while working at home. I still have my PC at work I can use once in a while. Thank you for your help. Frank frank@compwiretech.com

TV turns itself off and power light flashes green


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV.
The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.

If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Flashing lights.. when i turn power off it just does same thing


All lights flashing indicates a "fatal error" condition, so the printer just needs to be reset:

1. Turn the HP c3180 off.
2. Unplug the power cord.
3. Wait a minute, then plug the power cord
back in.
4. Turn the HP c3180 back on.

This should clear the system error and restore the printer to its "out-of-the-box" default settings.
