This could meen one or 2 things....If the unit has a dual LED on the power plug it could meen that the power plug is defective, or that there is feedback from the system (if the system is faulty). On the other hand if your system is working properly its probably just a led that shows that the power cable is functioning properly. I am stipulating the answer to this question because you did not specify wether or not the consol its self is functioning properly

Red light blinking


blinking of red light indicates that fault in main board or related boards. you need to open back cover remove each cable connected with main board one by one & put on tv after each cable is disconnected. if red light stops blinking on disconnecting any of the cables, that means related board is defective, if it does not stops blinking, check the power supply is generating proper voltages. if it is ok that means the main board is defective.

My printer will not turn on


First, try pressing and quickly releasing the Power button to start a Power On/Off cycle. Do not hold down the button. If this resolves the problem your done; if not continue on.

Inspect the power cord for visible damage; if damaged will need to contact HP to replace.

Disconnect the power supply (power module and cord) from the power source (wall socket) and the printer.

Test the power source, wall socket with or without your power bar or surge protector in place, with a small appliance you know works to confirm you have power. You may want to test the wall socket first and then test the power bar, etc. to make sure each component is not the problem.

If the appliance works then need to investigate the power supply. If the small appliance does not work you may need to check your electrical panel for a tripped breaker and possibly consult an electrician to check your electrical wiring.

To test the power supply plug in to the working power source; if the green light on the power supply does not light up you will need to contact HP to replace the power supply.

If the green light on the power supply lights up; reconnect to the printer.

Press and quickly release the Power button to turn the printer on. if the printer does not turn on you will need to check the USB cable.

Disconnect the USB cable from the printer.

Press the Power button to turn on the printer; if the printer turns on you will need to replace the USB cable.

If printer does not turn on, check the battery if your printer has one. A red light means the battery requires recharging; if it is still red after recharging, replace the battery.

If none of these steps resolve your issue before replacing the power supply try plugging the power supply directly in to a different working wall socket with no power bar or surge suppressor.; Press the power button.

If still no power to the printer you need to replace the power supply.

Blinking red light.Checked all cables. I replaced Hard drive...still problem exists. Wondering if power supply could be problem


When one light from the four lights ring itself changes from green to red, it means that a general hardware failure has occurred or is imminent. Blinking of one red light with an error message like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77 means a repairable problem while the one red light blinking without error message means some critical or irrepairable problem. The problem can be avoided by restarting the Xbox 360 console but if you have not received any error message with one blinking red light then the problem is irrepairable. The console will behave the same way and you should understand that one or more of the hardware components in your console have stopped functioning due to hardware failure. If you receive an error message with one red light blinking then the problem is reparable and the system will definitely start working. It means that there is some hardware problem with the Xbox 360 console connection occurring due to the misplacing of cables in the ports. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect all cables, now reconnect the cables and switch on the Xbox hope this helps.

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game


3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in)...you may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.
