Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Power supply failure

Got up this morning and had an electrical heat-up smell in my computer area. The power light on the 5100 was out, the power cable light was slickering, and the power supply side of the printer was hot to the touch. The power would not come on. Cooked..My compyter and all the other electrical items are on a excellent surge protector. However, there was no surge as all my equipment was still in full power-up and no problems other than the printer.

Will retunr the printer to WalMart, but you need to be aware that this could be a geneeral parts issue. I'm glad it did not catch fire as I had lots of paper material around it.

Everything has been working okay on this compaq until this morning. Upon powering up a Red and White HP screen pops up that turns into a black screen which reads quite simply: "Disk Boot...


The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

I have a dell dimention 5100 it was working fine this morning. But now i can turn it on.


Suggest you bypass the Power On switch with a jumper wire used on the Soft Power On of the Power Supply.

If the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.

If the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button.
This is one generic Power On switch that I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The jumper wire is used on the 24-pin ATX main power cable.
This is an example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Dell Support > Dimension 5100 > Technical Overview > System Board Components,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5100/en/sm/techov1.htm#wp1058472

The 24-pin ATX main power cable is plugged into the motherboard, as shown in the photo to the right, on the Playtool link.

The jumper wire is used to make a Momentary (Brief) contact, with the green wire, and ANY Black wire.

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire.
ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

There is a correct procedure for doing this.
The safety risk is very minimal.
The Soft Power On voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

An insulated wire should be used. You may wish to wear a glove on the hand that connects the jumper wire, just for an added feeling of safety.

Should you wish to know the correct procedure, simply state so in a Comment. Believe upper right of your page.

My Kogi L7EH-TA monitor will not function when hooked to my new Dell Inspiron 537.


Do you get a No Signal on the monitor?

IF so, the problem is in your computer, or you have a bad monitor cable. (Cable from monitor to computer)

Try the monitor on a known working computer, and use that working computer's monitor cable.

Monitor works?

Okay now use the monitor cable from the Dell Inspiron 537.
Monitor works?

Problem is in the computer.

Monitor doesn't work?
Problem is the monitor cable. They do go bad.

Problem is the computer? Check to see how dirty the computer is inside. Unplug the computer from power, open the computer case.

DO NOT reach inside, and touch any components, even to clean, until you have touched the metal frame of the computer case. You are just looking for now.

[ Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out the hardware components inside a computer.

Static will do it in a flash, and you won't see it, or feel it!
Computer unplugged from power, you're safe. Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, your computer is safe ]

If the inside of the computer is dirty, so is the power supply. The case fan/s draw air into the computer, and push the air through the computer case.

The power supply fan draws air through the computer, and pushes the air out of the back of the
computer.
Anything that goes through the computer, also goes through the power supply.

Dust, Dirt,. Hair, Lint, Carpet Deodorizer, you name it, can be drawn in. (Sometimes, spiders make webs inside!)

Inside the Dell Inspiron 537 Desktop PC, is a processor with a Heatsink on it, and a Fan on top of the heatsink.

The Heatsink is a square looking device, that has fins on the top.
The bottom is flat, and is attached to the top of the Processor's case.
The heatsink absorbs the heat of the processor, by being in close relation to it, and the fins radiate the heat up, and out.

(What an average Heatsink, and Fan combo look like,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2943299&CatId=493

There is also Thermal Paste, in-between the top of the Processor case, and bottom of the Heatsink)

The fan attached to the top of the Heatsink b-lows the heat away.
If the fins become clogged, and the blades of the fan, the processor heats up.

When the processor becomes too hot, it turns off.
This is a Fail Safe feature that is built-in. BIOS turns the Processor off.

During this, the Processor has been calling for more power, due to the heat.
The power supply tries to keep up.

The power supply has Heatsinks inside it, also. Plus a fan, to draw air across the components inside the power supply.
This is the power supply's cooling system.

Once the fins of the heatsinks become clogged, and the fan blades, the cooling efficiency drops tremendously.

The power supply heats up.
Again, Heat = Wasted Energy.

The power supply tries to put more, and more power out, until eventually the components inside the power supply fail.

Power supply failure is a main cause of computer failure.

Computer it doesn,t turn on just the yellow light blink


Generally this indicates a failed power supply. There is also a slim chance that the motherboard could be bad, but 85% of the time, it is the power supply... Excerpt from the Service Manual:

Blinking amber:
- A power supply or system board failure has occurred.
- Check the diagnostic lights to see if the specific problem is identified. Also, see "Power Problems" in your computer Owner's Manual.

The 280W may not be supportive enough for the computer requirements and is not diverting its power correctly to power the VGA part of the motherboard.

No Power / Start-up


if the power button on the front of the tower has no indications, then you most likely have a failure of the power supply.

Open the tower, and inspect for burnt wires. If you find no burnt wires, remove all PCI expansion card and all external connections, then connect the power cord and try to turn on. If no power, then you will most likely need to replace the power supply.

It is the least expensive part to replace on a no power situation. If replacing the power supply fails, then the front IO panel (Power button board) is next, then the motherboard is the 3rd most likely part that may have failed.

Power supply ?


I'd recommend purchasing a new power supply.

Your Dell Dimension 5100 comes stock with a 305W power supply. This is a bare-minimum wattage that will only handle what they ship on the system & not much more. You're better off upgrading the power supply with a compatible after-market model.

You can go to a PC parts store in your area and take your chances...but they're usually more expensive then Internet sources (they've got to pay for their brick-n-mortar store overhead).

Here's a link for a very inexpensive replacement 400W power supply for your Dell Dimension 5100:

http://www.affordablesurplus.com/dell-5100-5150-power-supply.asp

This particular site offers $8 Flat-rate shipping & a 1 year warranty. Your power supply is only $49.99 - you might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere, but that's the best I could find with a quick Google search.

If my answer helped you, please provide feedback :-)

Good luck!

Motherboard or CPU dead?


The burning smell (if it was a fishy type smell) may have come from the mobo psu 21 pin connector where you plug in the psu. The connection may not work properly because of melted plastic deposits which may be why you are unable to turn it off at the switch. Just check the old psu connector for signs of rusting pins and mis-shaped connector. If you have a fairly recent mobo and processor ensure that the power supply doesnt need the power supply from the psu, unlike some processors where the power is taken from the ZIF mobo socket.
