This issue could be due to presence of static charges or internal hardware malfunction of the notebook. To isolate the exact cause of the issue, perform the following steps.

Step 1: Hard Reset

To perform a hard reset, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.

This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now check for the issue. If the issue persists, then remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook.

Step 2: Remove and reseat memory modules

You can refer the service manual provided below for information to remove and reseat the memory modules.

Refer page no: 60 & 61
NOTE: PDF manuals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
However, if the issue still persists, then it is clear that the issue is due to internal hardware malfunction of the notebook and requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician. At this point, if your notebook is covered under HP warranty, then I suggest you to contact HP support to get the notebook repaired under warranty.

Red and orage lights are on - continuous beeping

It would be helpful if you are able to record the lights that are blinking.

Most likely the flood switch at the base of the diswasher under the bottom drawer has tripped. There is water leakage caused either by a broken hose or broken drawer lid seal.

The easiest way to confirm is to turn the power off at the power socket and shut off the water inlet tap. Pull open the bottom drawer and use towels to dry off the base. Use a hair dryer to fully dry the base. The flood switch is located on a small circuit board in the middle of the base. Wait for a couple of hours and then turn the power and water inlet back on. See if the beeps stop.

You got two problems fisrts is a switch malfuntion getting hung up or sticky door not shutting properly. For the light. Second I am going to go with a worn or leaky seal. That is causing the frosting.

2 year old Pioneer PDP-5070PU plasma TV with red standby light blinking. Have unplugged for up to 2 hours and when TV is turned on, a distorted picture appears for a second or two and then TV shuts down...

While not aware of particular problems with this TV (others may know it better) based on the description and my practice with plasmas I'd be inclined to believe that one of the two sustain boards is near end of life.

Could also be problems with the power board, usually caused by dried out capacitors, but could not find reports of that through Google, so my first idea holds.

If you have a screwdriver, muscules to move it around and patience to unscrew all the bolts that hold the back panel you can actually test my theory by disconnecting each sustain in turn and seeing if the TV powers with no problems.

The sustains are the two large boards - one of each side of the display - left and right. Each sustain has a pretty fat power cable connecting it to either the power board or the other sustain (through which it may be getting power).

If I have to guess I'd bet on the Y sustain, which is the larger of the two, usually staying on the left side.

But that's just a guess - could be the other as well.

And, of course, could be just about anything else.

This is just best guess based on experience.

Good luck!

Time to look for a new computer. That and take out your hard drive to copy your files over.

Sounds like motherboard problem. Probably not worth repair.

I've got an HP desktop with similar problems. It turned on one day just fine. The next day not. I don't even get the boot up screens. Disconnecting Hard Drive and CD/DVD components do not help. I should at least get some BIOS POST beeps and a Hard Drive Not Found or such. I do not. On occassion it will boot to a blank screen with white cursor in upper left. Most the time no screen at all. On rare occassion it comes right on and boots Windows. I guess it could be the power switch ... but I doubt that.

G5 failing to startup

Two things.  1. Boot from the original install disk and choose your language. Don't install the software, look up to the menu and find disk utility. You will run disk utility on your mac from the CD. You boot to the CD by holding down the "C" button during startup. 
2. If you had the insight to set up an emergency user, see if the problem occurs on both users. Sounds like it happens right off, so I think solution 1 is best. Once you get things running, set up another user. I call the account Emergency and use Emergency as the password. This is used for, you guessed it, emergencies. What this does is isolate the problem to the user or the computer. 
Apple has a great knowledge base to search for solutions as well. Good luck.

Power problems

The set is detecting a problem internally and shutting down to prevent further damage. This is often call protection mode. I would guess that there is either a bad connection somewhere or a part starting to fail. If there is a pattern to the failures, a quick trip to the repair shop is in order armed with that info. Rough guess would be abaout $30 in parts plus the local labor rate. This is based upon my own repair experience with these systems.

Flashing Green Light next to voltage switch

For problem #1 there is a MBR (Master Boot Record) problem, meaning that Windows is unable to find Windows. This can either be a software problem or a hard disk failure. If you have your Windows XP disc boot up with it in your cd drive and when it starts press 'R' for repair as this wil repair system files and you will not lose any settings or doc's. When you are running go to your hard disk drive manufacturer and run a diagnosis and repair if neccassary. Problem #2 should sort itself out if left unplugged from the mains supply and the power supply unit for 15 mins or so. If not there is a power supply that needs replacing.
