Well the say never answer a question with a question, so i will simply post 2 answers.

1. If you built the PC yourself, you may need to look at power requirements for this particular motherboard and perhaps transplant the board into a case with a larger power supply.
(ie: 300, 350 watt power supply or better )

2. If this is an older PC and someone else built it for you, you may need to consider that power supply units do burn out in time and may need to be replaced.

The power LED simply means there is power coming to the light itself, but may not be enough to sustain an entire motherboard and components etc.
This to me sounds very much like either the power supply is too small or burned out.

Sony Bravia KDL-40EX500. Plugged in power and no backlight. No pic no sound. Could it be the power board or inverter board? How can I test these boards? Thanks.

The units in this manual contain a self-diagnostic function. If an error occurs, the STANDBY LED will automatically begin to fl ash. The number
of times the LED fl ashes translates to a probable source of the problem. A defi nition of the STANDBY LED fl ash indicators is listed in the
instruction manual for the user's knowledge and reference. If an error symptom cannot be reproduced, the remote commander can be used to
review the failure occurrence data stored in memory to reveal past problems and how often these problems occur.
When an error occurs, the STANDBY LED will fl ash a set number of times to indicate the possible cause of the problem. If there is more than
one error, the LED will identify the fi rst of the problem areas.
Result for all of the following diagnostic items are displayed on screen.
If the screen displays a "0", no error has occurred .
Diagnostic Item
Number of times Standby
LED blinks Possible Location
Main Power Error 2 G2HE/GD2 (Power) Board
Audio Error 3 A (Main) Board
Balancer 4
LCD Panel
Inverter Board (ETC-Inverter MT Board) for 32" & 40" Models
TCON Error
LCD Panel
TCON Control MT Board
HFR Error 5 LCD Panel
Backlight Error 6
LCD Panel
Inverter Board (ETC-Inverter MT Board) for 32" & 40" Models
Temperature Error 7 A (Main) Board

This should help you narrow it down. I am also attaching the service manual for you.

Probable power supply failure

My JVC TV wont turn on, the blue LD at the front of the TV comes on, when i press the power button the blue LED goes off and i hear a click on the TV but it wont turn on.

Look at the power supply board, look for capacitors ( look like black or brown cans) that have their silver tops bulging. There is a cross on the top designed to open in a failure so the capacitor doesn't pop. Even if the top is still closed, the slightest bulge indicates a failure. Unsolder all bulging capacitors and replace with same spec. For instance, in a bad Samsung there are 4 1000mf 25v 105C rated caps that always go bad, same symptoms. The caps are about $3-4/pc in USA.

My Sony Bravia HX8/46 will not turn on, I check all the power going to it and it all works. Is there something I can do?

Is the standby led on the front lit. If not likely the problem is with power supply. If the standby led is on does it go off when the power button is pressed? Does the led blink. If so count the blinks and get back. The power supply provides an standby voltage to the main board. If the standby led is lit then this voltage is present. When the power button is pressed the micro sends a turn on voltage to the power board. Normally the power supply will respond and all other voltages needed to operate the set will come up. if a component is shorted the micro will not turn on the power board and will usually give a failure code via the standby led.

Internal led of ML350 server is do i resolve it?

Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.
