I have this exact problem.
The Dell Dimension 8400 will seem to randomly go into fan-jet-turbo mode on power-up and fail to boot. The problem I'm referring to is not a heat problem which an over-speed fan might otherwise suggest but a hardware problem the details I'll get to in a bit
I've done all the normal and obvious stuff that has been reported before
remove/replace AGP video card
removed all extra power loading / drives / USB etc
check supply voltages with a DMM (I even re-adjusted the hipot to get the right voltage - it was a little low)
As an engineer it is important to determine root cause. Do to this it is necessary to find a way to make the problem occur and not occur. If you're able to do this you can fix it.
Well in my case the problem it related to a mechanical stress on the heatsink. What I mean is a little force pushing the heat sink toward the fan turns off the problem (boots normally) while a little force in the directly away from the fan turns-on the problem (fan-jet-turbo-mode).
The root cause is could one of several things, it could be a damaged motherboard with a broken trace, it could be a socketing issue,
The Fix (not really - just a band-aide) was to use a tie a couple of small tie-wraps through a some small holes in the heatsink then through the fan mounting holes.
Only slight pressure is necessary - too much will likely cause permanent damage. The fan is mounted on rubber isolators so it somewhat limits the force on the heatsink
Any this mechanical issue is somewhat supported but all the information I've read - how removing/replacing the CPU can fix the problem, changing memory, removing cards - all these mechanicall stress the motherboard and likely move the heatsink some.
Intermittent problems are the worst to debug!

You should install the software prior to connecting the printer, to make sure the provided drivers are ibstalled and not the generic ones that come with Windows.

Perhaps it needs the bulb, but there is also a good possibility that the lamp fan is getting clogged and shutting down the set. This is NOT the fan you see in the back, instead, it is above the lamp, and is a small blower-type fan, that tends to clog with dust. You CAN check this, when you open the lamp door,you can see the blower wheel, and if it is all dusty, it needs to be cleaned out--but do NOT just blow it out, or you might clog the engine!! It needs to be removed, and cleaned out of the set.
But first...if the blower is not too dirty...try another lamp.

This is a common problem on these plasma TV's. The problem resides inthe high voltage boards known as the X and Y Sustain boards.. You canpurchase them here for a very reasonable price:
The above link is to a Y-SUS board. The X-Sus board is often the 2nd cause of failure and can be found here:
Totest which board is failing, you need to check voltage input to theYSUS board first... Input should be 120V from Power supply, outputshould be above 250V.. Do this test with XSUS disconnected. IF 250+Vexists, then XSUS is damaged. If not, then the YSUS is the faulty part.
