Here is what i found, let me know if it works for you. 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful: Flashing light - stars-3-0._v47082372_.gif Easy fix for GX250, June 11, 2006 By J. Petrosky - See all my reviews
I recently repaired a GX250 that refused to turn on (flashing power led), and apparently this fix works for most other problems too, including "no disc" errors and no sound output.

What you need to do is clean and reseat the (widest) white ribbon connector that connects the front panel to the large circuit board on the side. To get to the connector, you'll have to take off the sides and the top, and then unscrew the cd tray so you can lift it up and get your arm and hand in far enough to reach the connector from the opposite side. Then unplug the ribbon cable, blow the connector out with some compressed air, and plug it back in firmly.

My optiplex 330 is not powering up.the power botton flashes orangy bright when the pc is turned on.what the problem there please

The common issue related with a Flashing Amber Power Light is a BAD POWER SUPPLY. If the Amber Light is SOLID then it may be your MOTHERBOARD.

But if it is flashing repeatedly then it is your power supply, you will need to purchase a new one. Good Luck.

Cant get the red lights to stop flashing

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? if the red light couldn't stop flashing it means it will not be powered off through the botton.i have encountered this problem before also epson.most of the lights flashing is a sign of ink to be replaced or the power could not be off. try to check if your ink is not empty.and if its not. the power button is locked or damage thats why it keeps on flashing like what happened to my printer before.try to check also if you dont have pending files to be printed. if all was done. thats the time you open your printer then clean the power button with small brush.remove the dust and dirt coz this may cause the problem. good luck.hope i helped you.

Mitsubishi delicia 2.6 td (shogun engine). fails to release from 4wd so two front wheel lights flashing on dash. Its an auto but have tried usual things like re-engage then disengage and straight line...

Check the super select solenoids. I had the same problem with my pajero/montero io, when I released 4WD from 4H to 2H the two front wheels lights started flashing. They stopped flashing and was solid on when I re-engaged the 4WD (2H to 4H).

My problem was a failure in the 2H solenoid, it was not producing enough vacuum. The problem was intermitent at the begining and then was permanent.

I checked the solenoids in this way:
1) The solenoid that receives the vacuum in the botton is for 2H
2) The solenoid that receives the vacuum in the top is for 4H
3) Both solenoids operate in the same way, they only change in the way they transfering vacuum from top/botton to the exit pipe (2H or 4H). The difference is that one has the vacuum input on the top and the another one in the botton.
4) The default position when you disconnect the electronics is 4WD
5) Try disconnecting the electronics and switching the output pipe between the solenoids. This will put the solenoids on 4WD position and you changed the pipes, so the 4WD should disengage.

4WD should disengage if your 4H solenoid is OK, the ligths should now flash when you change from 2H to 4H because 4WD cannot engage because the pipes are switched. You can also check the vacuum of each solenoid with your finger on each one.

If this doesn't work, try to bypass the solenoids and connect the input vacuum hose to the 2H output pipe. If the lights doesn't turn off in 2H mode it's posible that you have different problem.

Good luck.

Sony bravia tv

Solution is simple....

First, unplug power cable from the back of your TV. You will notice the flashing light is still flashing. Don't worry, go to the Second step.

Second, keep pressing on the POWER button, located on the panel at the top of your TV, to shut off your TV. This will stop the flashing light from appearing.

Third, Plug the power cable back onto your TV

Fourth, press the POWER botton ONCE, using the same button used in the Second step to turn your TV back on.

Fifth, you will see the POWER light comes on, as normal.

Sixth, using your remote control, press the green button to turn on. Your TV should work as normal.
