Okay most of these can be fixed when buying another external case! These are SATA drives inside all you need is a case for it take it out of the case and put it into another and you are set again. Most of these drives loose there controller befor the disc so try that I know it will work as it did for me.

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and power button blinks green for a few seconds then blinks red continuously. red light by card reader blinks red about every five seconds. No picture, no sound.


unplug it from power source completely 15 minutes then plug back in with NOTHING plugged into any of the ports. If it boots back up then does it again later it make be something plugged into a port causing power to back feed into the boards. I had this same issue on my plasma last year ended up being the xbox360. After this if it still wont power then your power board maybe bad.

Power supply in HP slimline s7310n


It sounds like the CPU is over heating. It probably has poor ventilation. Unplug the unit and open the side panel. Carefully vacuum all the dust inside. Be careful not to damage any electronics. You can use a small brush to loosen the dust before vacuuming. Good luck!

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. Has the cord been pulled while it was plugged into the laptop damaging the AC jack? If you have a multimeter you can verify you are getting the correct DC volts at the laptop ac jack plug. Try HP Support for a explanation of the small led blinking: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?locale=en_us&taskId=135&prodSeriesId=5060880&prodTypeId=321957

My Dell laptop d600 suddenly shut off and will not power back up....led light on adapter blinks when plugged in...I have tried re-inserting RAM modules but this or nothing else seems to work.. thank you...


Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

Power light blinking green,nopicture lc-32sb24u lc-37sb24u


This same thing happened to me, but not until I fiddled with all of my remotes, trying to see if it was an input issue, battery issue, etc. I finally unplugged the tv from the wall and plugged it back in. Nothing. Then I went to take 5 minute ****. When I finished, the Power & OPC lights were blinking, and out of sync. I pressed the power button at the top of my TV and got a picture.

Word.

No power, power supply & motherboard green light blinking


I had the same exact problem for the same exact reason. Plug the power cable into the back. Open up the side of the case and unplug all the wires that the power supply plugs into. The motherboard, harddrive, cd & dvd drives, everything. wait about 10 minutes and plug them back in, plugging the BIG cable that connects to the motherboard back in LAST. This will make the light go from blinking to solid. I think it is a safety? to protect the motherboard from damage.

Blank screen, no sound


If ti blinks three times, then it may be an issue with the flyback transformer. It's called "three strikes"...it tries three times to come on, and after that enters a safety shutdown mode to protect the TV. Might need to have a professional shop take a look at it.
