I can't get the power to come on my computer. I know the powercord works when it is plugged in there is a continous green light. When I plug it into the port it starts flashing.Originally the printer stopped in the middle of printing out a paper from the computer. Thanks for your help.

    There is no power to the printer. The computer is fine.

    FYI. I signed up for one time only help. Not monthly service, if you have anything to do with that. I already emailed to inform of the mistake. Thank you.

  • alinearl Sep 24, 2009

    I have unplugged and plugged back in.

    There is a little chirping sound coming from the power plug at the port when it is plugged in.

    The green light on the powerplug flashes. It does not stay solid green. When all this is plugged in, the printer can not be turned on.

    Sorry for the delay in the reply. The printer is about 1.5 to 2 years old. Out of warranty unfortunately. I talked to Kodak and all they could do for me is offer 30% off a new one.

    They also didn't have any authorized repair people they would refer me to.

    I'm sure it could be a fairly simple fix. No more Kodak products for me.

    Thank you so much for your help. After following your instructions and finally reloading the printer program, the printer finally had power and displayed an error number 3806.

    I then proceeded to call Kodak again and this time I got help. After removing the printer carriage etc. the tech decided that I need a new printer head. They are shipping it to me and he assured me that this was my problem. I am hopeful that it will be taken care of with the replacement.

    I couldn't have gotten to that point without your help, so thank you again.

    At this time I wish to reiterate that this is a one time service charge from your company and that I do not wish monthly support.

    I only say this once more because I haven't heard back after emailing. My credit card is aware though of my wishes.

    Thank you again.


  • alinearl Sep 25, 2009

    Thank you. Your solution got me to the point where I could get the proper help from Kodak and now they are sending me a new printer head.
    I am hopeful that this was the problem and it will now be resolved.
    Your website rocks!

When you send a print job to the product, the product does not respond.
There are no flashing lights on the product, and no error messages display on the computer. T
he product connects directly to a computer running Windows XP.

The following situations might also accompany the issue:
-The Windows print spooler shows the printer status as Paused , Offline , Pending , or User Intervention Required
-After restarting your computer, a message about pending print jobs displays
-A printer icon displays in the notification area (the lower-right portion of the Windows taskbar) and does not go away
NOTE: Some of the following solutions require you to restart the computer. Consider bookmarking this page on your Web browser,
so that you can reference it after restarting the computer.

Solution one: Check for communication issues:

Step one: Check the USB cable

-Find the USB cable connected to the product.
-Follow the cable from the product to the computer
-If the product connects to the computer through a non powered USB hub (a hub without its own power cord),
click one of the following links to clear the incomplete print jobs:
-Then connect the product directly to the computer or to a powered USB hub, and then continue to the next step
-If the product connects directly to the computer or to a powered USB hub , continue to the next step

Step two: Check the print queue

-A stalled or incomplete print job in the print queue can cause print jobs to back up.
Follow these steps to check and, if necessary, clear the print queue.
-Restart the computer.
-If a message shows that print jobs are waiting to be printed, click Cancel .
-CAUTION: This action might delete those print jobs.
-Open the Printers folder:
Windows XP: Click Start , click Control Panel , and then double-click Printers and Faxes .
The Printers and Faxes window opens
-In the Printers window, double-click the icon for your product. A window showing any pending print jobs opens.
-If there are documents waiting to be printed, click one of the following links to clear the incomplete print jobs:
-NOTE: Do not close the Printers window yet. You will access it in the next steps.

Step three: Check to see if the printer is paused or offline

-Return to the Printers window you opened in Step two.
-Right-click the icon for your product, and then click Open . A printer window opens.

-In the top of the printer window, click Printer , and look for checkmarks next to Pause Printing , Work Offline , or Use Printer Offline .
-If the printer is paused or offline , click to clear the checkmarks.
-If the printer is not paused or offline , press the Esc key on the keyboard to close the printer window without changing any settings.
-Return to the Printers window, and double-click the icon for the product again.
-Click Printer , and then click Cancel All Documents or Purge All Print Jobs .
-NOTE: Do not close the Printers window yet. If you need to continue to the next solution, you will need it again.

-If the issue persists , see the next step.

Solution two: Verify software configuration:

Step 1

Follow these steps in the order presented to make sure that the product is configured correctly and is set as the default Windows printer.
-Step one: Ensure the correct print driver is being used
-Return to the Printers window you opened in Solution one.
-Look for a checkmark ( ) next to the product icons. This checkmark indicates which product is set as the default printer for Windows.
-If the wrong product is set as the default , right-click the icon for the correct product, and then click Set as Default Printer .
-If the correct product is set as the default , continue to the next step.
-Right-click the icon for your product, and then click Properties . The printer Properties window opens.
-Click the Ports tab.

-Look for the icon that represents your antivirus software. This icon is commonly located in the lower-right corner of the computer.
-Right-click the icon, and then click Disable .
-Terminate and Stay Residents (TSRs)
-When you turn on the computer, a software group automatically loads and runs in the background to perform certain duties. These software groups are called Terminate and Stay Residents (TSRs). Occasionally, TSRs prevent the computer from operating efficiently, resulting in printing errors.

-Click Start , and then click Run . The Run dialog box opens.
-In the Open field, type MSCONFIG , and then click OK . The System Configuration Utility window opens.
-Under the General tab, select Selective Startup , and then click to remove the checkmark from Load Startup Items or Load Startup Group Items .
-Click OK .
-Restart the computer, and then try the print job again.

this should solve your issue, if the problem still exist, please call your equipment manufacturer

You say no power to the computer, or to the printer? You reference both in your question. Please let me know and we will figure this out.

    No worries, ok so the printer won't power on at all? You say the light is on but the machine doesn't come up? Have you unplugged it from the back of the printer and then from the wall as well? Then try replugging and see how it goes...?

    Let me know

    Thanks for clarifying

    I see, so it is flashing, that usually indicates power supply failure. How old is this printer?

My samsung Tablet's Screen keeps flickering continously

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Good luck.

My computer says it is charging but as soon as i hit the power button it stops charging and does nothing even happens

Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

Hi, I would suggest that you powerdrain first your desktop before turnng it on again. What might cause this problem is you did not properly shutdown you computer or power interuption. To powerdraqin your computer you must unplug first the powercord on the back of your desktop then you should press and hold the power button for 20 seconds without the powercord plugin to your desktop, after that you can now plug in the powercord and turn on your desktop computer. If this troubleshooting step doesnt work you can try unpluging the powersupply itself into the motherboard and just plug it back, also while your doing this you might also try clean the
RAMS or the memory of your computer and make sure that they are properly seated. Hope this helps

Check the AC adapter (the brick) if its showing light. If it does, try flexing the cable that is connected to your computer. Also, you may isolate the issue by removing the battery. If you can see light on your computer when you turn it on, it means its getting power.

Upon power up, 3 red LEDs flashing rapidly continously, no power.

The control systems on power mobility equipment have a "prevent" circuit that immobilizes the equipment while it is plugged into a charger, so folks won't take off with it plugged into the wall outlet. When you turn it on when plugged into a charger, the display will flash constantly, or sweep constantly, depending on the manufacturer. This is normal. Your off-board charger should have a red light to indicate power to the charger, and another light for the charge status. Yellowish means it is charging, when it turns green, you are fully charged. If the status light is green all the time, that is an indication that the charger is not functioning properly, or that the batteries are below a chargeable state. Check charger output, which should be 26-28 volts dc, and each battery should show at least a 12 volt reading, but around 13.5 volts with a full charge. If one or both of the batteries drops below 12 volts after a short period of time, it's time for a fresh pair. Fully charge new ones before using the chair.

BIOSTAR K8M800 Micro AM2 wont boot

It's suppose to do that. These motherboards are new generation. After everything is ready to go, you plug the power cord to the wall and pc. The computer power supply fan spins for about 3 seconds or so and maybe a few lights blink. This is normal. Its kind of a self diagnostic telling itself (I'm ok, you can power me on now). Did I answer your guestion? If not, let me know.
