Modem went off one day no lights, so I started looking for answers. Found out if you just lightly tap the power on/off button the modem lights go off and you can turn the switch off and back on, then it works fine. But each time you just touch the on/off button the modem goes off. The modem is 1 year and 4 months old. Just web surfing. Is that a short in the on/off button? Would you replace the modem?
I also had this problem with the 4100. This is what I did as a "Lo-Tech" fix. If you push in your power button and hold it in, and your modem powers on, then this should work for you. First unplug all cords. Turn the modem over and remove the small phillips screw from the bottom. Next, gently pry apart the two halves of the case. There are 4 tabs total. I found working back to front the best way. After removing the top half, gently pull the circuit board up and out. Now for the magic. Get yourself a twist-tie. Push the button all the way in, and wrap the twist tie around the whole button. Twist it down tight, and put everything back together. You should be good to go. If this doesn't work for you, or holding in the power button doesn't power up your modem, you could try just blobbing some solder over the three pins on the bottom of the board, under the switch. This should bypass the switch completely. Either way, you can cycle your power on and off with the cord instead of the button. Hope this helps!

Re: 4100SS Power Button fails
Most companies give a warranty or modem replacement if it's within a year old. contact your ISP & check if they can replace it or give you a new discounted one. also, try using newer or latest modem versions.

You should see a lot more than just one red light, I'd think. Sounds like the modem took a surge. I'd look to see if there is a tiny reset hole or button somewhere. If not, leave it unplugged for 15 minutes and try again. May have failed.
These early 90's vehicles had alot of problems with the antitheft systems. When they fail, they actually cut power to the starter or injectors. Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. You see this light, go to this link for answers. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
I had the same problem after not paying attention to the connections when replacing my motor. I spent days searching for information and only found several non-answers with small photos that no one can read.I contacted Oreck for wiring information. They explicitly stated that they can't provide any wiring information for safety and liability reasons.
I found the Ametek schematic which shows the LINE and TAP locations on the motor.
Note: I have a 2600HH XL with 2 headlights.
Connect as follows:
3A, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #1 & white lead from the power harness to the piggy back terminal 2A, TAP: Black lead from light harness #1 3B, LINE: White lead w/piggy back terminal from light harness #2 & black lead from the power harness 2B, TAP: Black lead from light harness #2
If you mean the power button just flashes green but it does not power on then your motherboard might be the issue. Remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. In other words just have the power supply and motherboard connected and see if the power light stays solid green. If it does then start re-inserting cards and connecting drives etc (WITH POWER DISCONNECTED) to try and isolate the problem. If not then your motherboard is probably defective and needs to be replaced. Also plug the computer directly into the AC wall outlet.
you need to sequential power cycle all the equipment, turn off ps3, turn off router, and turn off modem. then one by one turn it on. start with the modem. and wait for the lights to settle in. then the router. if all the lights had settled in. turn on your ps3 then try to connect again. this should work
Flashing power light on Router is sign of hardware failure
As mentioned, you have already reset the router
You can try to hard reset the router one more time
Follow this procedure
1. Press the reset button with some paper clip
2. Wait for 10 Secs
3. Turn of Power to the router (While Reset button is still pressed)
4. Wait for 10 secs
5. Power on router
6. Wait for 10 secs and then release the Reset button
While doing this make sure reset button is pressed continuously start from Step 1 - 6
Check if Power light still blinks
If No - you can setup router like before and it will work
If yes - Buy a new router or get it replaced if under warranty
You need to hard reset your modem. By doing that, unplug the modem from the power outlet. Look at the back of the modem, you will see there a small red button. You need to press that button. You need to get a pin or pen to press that reset button. Press the reset button for 5 mins. Monitor the power light. It will change to orange light and it will restart. Once it restarted, you can release the reset button and wait for the lights to come up. Since you did the hard reset. You need to configure the modem with your username and password from your ISP.
You need to access the gui or firmware of your modem. If it ask for username and password. This is the time you need to contact your ISP. They will help you to configure the modem. Once they provided you the username and password ofr your modem. Write it down so you will have a copy and in case it happen again you know what to do. Username and password for the modem is different from the username and password for your internet. You also need to enter the username and password for the internet so you can use the internet. If you get a red light for the internet, that means the username and password is incorrect.
If this didnt work. You need to replace your modem.
Have you tried the reset feature, small button near the power port.
Hold it down for thirty seconds with the unit unplugged. If that doesn't work you may need to buy a new router as something may have failed some time ago and just not been noticed until it was turned off.
Try the reset, but I suspect whatever killed your modem likely killed the router at the same time.
