Red power light on, making a noise but won't switch on/off

I have a red light on the power led but it won't switch on/off. Was just working on the PC and it just went off. It appears to be making a noise (fan?) but nothing on screen. Have tried turning off at plug, have checked connections and have tried holding power button in but nothing seems to be working. Can you help as am a bit stupid with these technical things!!

Why doesn't it start?

i am not sure what you mean by resolved LED errors. These lights in the back tell you that the BIOS is checking your hardware and the way to correct that is by replacing the faulty hardware. For example you determine memory is bad and you replace it. Make sure that is connected properly. You can do this with all hardware. Disconnect everything except the cables from the power supply to the motherboard and try. contact me if you wish at

Red light is blinking 6 times

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
Type in the brand name and type of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and the Search will start at once as you type in, and will show you all the related posts. It will make surf easy.

Phillips plasma led lights tv won't power on

What you describe is symptomatic of power supply trouble. A capacitor that isn't bulging or showing signs of leakage could still be defective electrically. Troubleshooting using suitable test equipment will be necessary

My toshiba TP48E60 model projection tv won' turn on, power light just blinks

Blinking of power LED are fault indications. Count the number of blinks occur at one time switch on. For this number, you can get an idea about the faulty section circuit inside it. It will make troubleshooting much narrower. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

LG 17LX1R flashing red LED - TV won't power up

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Power led light

You need not worry, it appears the LED light is a little faulty and your switch mode power supply is OK.
If you are worried then replace this LED.

I have a dell inspiron 560 with 6 wires from the front panel power switch. which wire is yhe positive for each set? the color for each set are as follows power switch colors are 1) blue and brown 2)power...

Led's only work one way, so it does'nt matter what colours they are. The led's that they connect to will only work when the plug is the correct way. You wont do any harm if they are wrong, you just turn them round. Plug them in one way and if the led for the hard drive does'nt come on then it's the other way. Same with the power light. The power switch when pressed just makes a momentary connection across 2 pins, so it does'nt matter which way, it's just like touching the pins quickly with a piece of metal.
