    Yeah, mine too! I can plug in the A/C chord, the orange light goes on for a split second and then goes out. Nothing else happens. ZERO POWER! -- Nintendo says that I can send it in with $75, but there's no promise to repair it! What a pain

I had the same problem, but i fixed it myself. It sounds like the fuse ( F2) is blown on the circuit board. Have you had the ds open at anytime ? if so ,did you put the black sponge/foam back in place between the touch screen and the circuit board? if not , this will blow the fuse. if you look at the circuit board just past midway top right there is two small silver dots. ( F2 ). this should have a very thin piece of fuse wire linking them both, if not then the fuse has blown. Solder a piece of solder and "arch it" and drag from one dot to the other so it forms a link. Try it , it worked a treat on mine . Let me know if it works

My ups is nu meric digital problem is whenever i on my ups a orange light is burning continuously and ups is not working what is problem in that i cant understand pls tell me solution

Hi Lokesh,

Orange lights on most UPS systems we've come across indicate that the unit is overloaded - you have too many things drawing too much power plugged into it.

Hope that helps.

I have a toshiba satillite pro l300. when i plug into mains only the orange light comes on and nothing else.

Try removing the battery and using the power cord to turn on the system. Usually an orange light means a battery problem.

Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.
    Call 1-800-255-3700 if you still need help.

If after the replacing the AC adapter the problem still persists , the power board on the motherboard has gone bad. The same can be repaired, but would require you to take the system in for repairs. if the system is under warranty then the best thing to do is get the motherboard replaced.

Mac Ibook Power supply problem

On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!

Have you checked the post lights located in the back of the system by where the keyboard plugs in? There are is a row of 4 lights; either yellow or green. If the systems gets stuck at a particular post location, the lights will tell where. Good luck
