When I power up my PC, the red LED HDD light is solid red (no blinking) and then after a couple of minutes or so, it goes very dim and I cannot get the monitor to turn on. Is this a HDD drive issue or is it a motherboard or processor issue? Thanks.

I believe that it is a motherboard issue (video card, processor or RAM) but not the HDD. you can get into bios without hard disk or even if its not detected. so the major problem will be the four hardwares.

I have a Gateway Plasma TV, model GTW-P46M103. I am not getting a picture or sound.


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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Replaced lamp on mitsubishi wd62527 worked for 10 minutes then shut down. Now red lamp light is on


If the red indicator light on the front of your HDTV is glowing a solid red, you should first unplug the AC cord from the wall power outlet and wait for 60 seconds before reapplying power to the HDTV.

After you turn the TV on, if it doesn't power up, try holding the power button down for at least 8 seconds. That's supposed to force a system reset. If your model has a system reset button, use that instead. Press the reset button for about 20 seconds...release it and press it again for 20 seconds, release it again and the led will blink just for a minute or two. You should now be able to turn the TV on.
If after several attempts, the HDTV has not fully powered on and the LED on the front of the HDTV is still glowing solid red, you may want to reseat the lamp.

If reseating the lamp has not resolved the issue then your next step is to order a replacement lamp.

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.

HELLO...MY HDD LED IS NOT BLINKING ON MY PC BUT WHEN I CONECTED TO MY FRIEND'S PC IT WORKED ......THE GREEN LIGHT IS WORKING PERFECTLY WHEN I CONNECT IT TO THE HDD LED POINT IT BLINKS BUT THE RED


Look for the LED pins on your motherboard. One should be labeled HDD+ and one HDD- make sure the cables are plugged into these pins. Doesn't really which color wire to the + or - If it is plugged in the LED on your case could be bad. To test this will need a multimeter. Unplug the HDD cables from the pins. Set the multimeter to measure resistance the horseshoe 1 or 10 Ohms is fine. Stick a probe in each connector if the probes dont fit stick a paper clip in each hold and touch the probe to the paper clips. Dont let the clips touch. If you get no reading then the LED probably burnt out. If the LED tests ok you can leave it unplugged and turn on the computer. Set the multimeter to 10 Volts. Touch the red probe to the HDD+ pin and the black probe to the HDD-. DO NOT TOUCH BOTH PINS WITH ONE PROBE OR YOU WILL SHORT IT. Be careful... If you don't get a reading then there is no voltage making it to the pins.

The front LED flashes red & blue when I turn it on. What does this mean?


LED Indicators - LaCie 2big Network
The LED indicators above the drive bays and the front LED indicate drive status and activity.
During Startup
  • Front LED – blinks red/blue until both disks are powered on, then turns solid blue.
  • Rear LEDs – blinks red/blue until corresponding disk is powered on, then turns solid blue.
NOTE: If the device is not able to initiate the boot process following disk startup, the front is solid red.
During Bootup
  • Front LED – solid blue
  • Rear LEDs – solid blue
NOTE: If a disk is failing, both the disk’s corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid red.
During RAID Synchronization
  • Front LED – solid red
  • Rear LEDs – The LED corresponding to the original disk will be blinking blue and the one being synchronized is blinking red
  • Once both disks are synchronized, their corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid blue.

Solid Red LED... going nuts!!!!


What you need to do is reinstall the update I would do this by backtracking to a previous version of the software then reinstall the update again just make sure it is the right update for your service provider and then it should be fine :)
