No Power up

When turning on my emachine 620 the power indicator light on the base unit flashes. It sounds like the fan is running but thats it. Nothing else is happening.

If you feel brave, open up the case (assuming no warranties etc, if it has a warranty sticker on it, and you know the warranty is valid, whatever you do- dont open the case, take it to them to fix!) and double check all power leads etc are plugged in correctly. The power box is the silver box, usually at the top left hand corner of your computer. Follow all the cables and make sure everythings plugged in. Usually if something is loose, you get some mad beeping, but some manufacturers turn the beeps off (Why, I dont know!) Check that there are no loose cables and everythings in nice and snug, then try booting it up again. Did anything happen between it working and it not? say, a pop or some crackling? or its been moved? Do you get any visual output at all?

Sorry If I can't be any more helpful at this stage, I have had this problem a few times with some computers, and its either somethings loose, or the motherboard has gone!

Sounds like a bad motherboard. It's getting power and turning on the fans and everything, except booting it up. Yeah, sure sounds like a bad MB. How old is the pc? You have to be careful with Emachines. They are built cheap and break often.

When powering on the PC and you get no beeps, but you are getting power to the fans and hard drives, this may indicate either a bad power supply or bad memory. You can take the machine into a pc repair shop and have them test the memory and PSU for you.

Power indicator /red/ and warning led/red/ are lighting after ea 15 sec. a lamp never start and fans goes in OFF mode. I checked power supply lines S5V,S-5V,S16V on the Main Board . I checked unit lamp...

If power indicator light red and warning indicator red flashing than according to user manual :-
The projector has been cooled down enough and the temperature returns to normal. When turning ON the projector the WARNING indicator stops flashing. CHECK AND CLEAN THE AIR FILTER.
Experience:- 1. if the temperature is very low than temperature sensor maybe misbehave.
2. If anyone fan not working
so please you check fans.
(If lamp or lamp ballast unit faulty than after a time period the lamp indicator light ON not a warning indicator. I experience many times if any fan in projector are broken or jamed the temperature light if present otherwise warning light ON or flashing)

Freezer FZ175 Red Warning Light is flashing

The flashing red light indicates the problem in the temperature of the unit.The temperature is rising over then required so the red light is flashing. There are some possibilities that you will have to get checked.
1) Make sure your freezer/refrigerator door is closing properly and sealing all around.If the doors are not closing properly then this can lead to rise in temperature.
2) If doors are proper and closed properly then other possibility is to check the compressor .Check the compressor is it running properly or its not running.Beside the compressor there is a fan if the fan is running the compressor is turning on if fan is not running the compressor is not running.If the unit is not getting very cold this also indicates the problem is in the compressor section.A weak or faulty compressor causes the temperature rise problem.
3) If compressor also checks out ok then the other possibility is fault in the thermostat of the unit.The thermostat is getting overheated and this is causing the red light flashing.
4) Before replacing any part in the unit try the defrost procedure first .Keep the unit unplugged from power and keep both the freezer/refrigerator doors open .let it remain unplugged for 24 hours.Then reconnect the power and check for some time.If the unit works properly that means defrost procedure solved the problem.But if same error light comes On flashing that means the faulty part needs replacement.

I have an emachine t5026 that won't turn on. It sounds like a car tying to start and the lights on the front flash as does the light on the mouse, but it won't start

check the fans on inside of the computer. they may be all gummed up with dust and lint. clean carefully and try and turn it on again. also watch the fans and see if you can tell where the bad sound is coming from, if the CPU fan is clogged up the CPU will over heat as its turning on and shut down.. if the raunchy sound is coming out of the power supply then that may be bad. sounds as if it might be.

Flashing power button - no keyboard nor mouse. But PC works... ??

Yes, it may be that the +5v supply from the PSU is faulty, as the PS/2 ports run on 5v and USB runs on 9-12v. Replace the PSU with another of the same form factor and same power rating or better (>=230W). They come at ~£30, so not too expensive. For a little more. Try this:
