    Maxtor 3199 with more or less same problem. Solid green light. Red light blinks once in a while. When problem first happened I changed the USB cable and the problem went away. But now it doesn't work again. I'd appreciate any advice; it may be under warranty but I'd like to retrieve the data (kids pictures) first.

    I find it very interesting that we are all experiencing the same problems at the same time. I to have just plugged my external drive's power supply in and it now blinks green on the light and the drive does not start up. Has anyone found a solution for this problem?

I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.

Red light flashing does not turn to green on dolce gusto piccolo


Same thing just happened to my Dolce Gusto Piccolo. It was off for 2-3 weeks, and after turning on, the light just kept blinking red forever. I tried pulling out water reservoir and putting it back repeatedly for a few dozen times (saw somewhere that air should be pumped out of the system), but It didn't help. Then I plugged out the power cord from the wall socket (while the machine was on), and plugged it back after a few seconds. Turned the Piccolo on, and it worked (blinked red shortly and turned green). Maybe it has something to do with induced current. And maybe pulling the water reservoir actually helped :)

The green "On" light for


Some troubleshooting tips:
  • Right click the printer icon in your icon tray to clear any queued items
  • Go to your printers in the control panel and make sure that the Epson is the default printer
  • Unplug the printer and plug it back in to reset it
  • Push the blinking light/Start/On button on the printer, sometimes printer lights blink after they have received new paper and are waiting for you to "authorize"
  • Open the printer and check for jams
  • Re-insert the printer ink cartridges and close the printer

    Hope this helps!

My LaCie external hardrive doesn't show on my desktop anymore when I plug it in. This just started today yesterday it was fine, but now the light doesnt even come on


First try to plug it in to a different port on your computer.
If it still doesn't come up, reboot your computer, Still not working? Try connecting it to a different computer.
If the drive still doesn't come up on the other computer most likely the case/ housing will need to be replaced.

Blingking light on my motherboard, no power.


Chances are your power supply and computer is fine! From other forums on this problem (which I also had), I've learned the following:
1. If you unplug the computer for a half hour or so (the blinking green light will gradually slow down and quit) and plug it back in, the situation will correct itself and the green light will be steady; however if this does not work,
2. a reset that works for a lot of people with the blinking light problem involves leaving the power supply plugged in and unplugging the power supply connection at the motherboard (it usually also has a blinking green LED) and plugging it back in. To read up on how to do this, Google "blinking green light on computer power supply" and read through some of the forums and you'll come on more specific instructions. Usually, you have to wade through everybody telling you to replace the power supply or your motherboard is fried. It's worth a try for a quick fix, just in case those situations don't apply!

Camara locked up


Be sure you are using the right kind of batteries in the camera. Check to see if the device requires NiMh, Lithium, etc. It's not just about getting AA size. Alkaline will probably not work properly, and could cause device malfunction.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
