    I have a Emachines T2893 for four years.

    Suddenlly it went dead.

    Swapping power supplies did not help.

    Only green LED on the MB is lite.



    I'm reading that capacitors on the mother board went bad.

    Would you know which capacitors need to be changed?



    I am fully capable of changing them myself.



    Thank You

    I have the same problem. The green LED on the Motherbd is on. I checked the power supply with a PS tester and it powers up properly (fan turns on) when using the tester. I can't see anyvisual problems on the motherbd. Any ideas?

Well, it could be a lot things but here is 2 very important
1) power supply bad, time to change
2) conection in the other site is low voltage or bad.
you also check if power cord is broke or loose.

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse.
From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.

The monitor is a Dell? UltaSharp 2007WFP 20.1 Inch Flat Panel Monitor. I Tried everything. different power cables, DVI cables, VGA cables, disconnecting everything and reconnecting. NOTHING WORKS. I even...


Not sure if this is your problem, but I have seen this with another Dell monitor on three separate occasions. The solution I found was to turn off at the wall power socket, unplug at the wall socket, plug back in, turn on at socket etc and everything was fine. Guess something hangs up somewhere.

Power swich blinging ,does not power on


The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Router problems


Make sure you have the cable plugged to the right spot. Your modem to the Internet/WAN port and your computer to port 1, the 2nd pc to port 2. Try to reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power from the back of the router and also unplug the power from the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. After that, Plug the power back to the modem first, wait for all the lights to be steady then plug the power back to the router. That should do it.

Make sure everything in side your computer is in all of the way. Push down on all of the cards and the memory to make sure nothing came loose. Make sure all of the cables are securely fastened and give it another go to see if it powers up.
