Power LED flashes Red,
once every two seconds.
Power LED flashes Red four
times, once every second,
followed by a two second

Would this be the symptom?

If so, then yes, the Power Supply is bad.

What causes this?

1) A large percentage is due directly to the fact, that the computer is dirty inside, as well as the inside of the Power Supply.

2) A smaller percentage is that the Power Supply is a low quality unit, installed by the computer manufacturer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, anti-Static precautions observed.

Using a can of compressed air for computers on a regular basis as needed, would help prevent Power Supply failure.

Is the dc5000 the Small Form Factor, or the Micro-Tower, style?
(SFF style looks like a Pizza Box)

Will look up Power Supply replacement for you if you wish, and information on replacing it.

Hello My Hyundai TV's display is breaked... the whole display is breaked in the bottom part no display and only rainbow colour lines..and on the upper part the picture is coming but the colours...

Hyundai: If it's an LCD TV, the panel has been impacted and is not repairable.

You didn't provide enough information about the other TV to answer. It could be the power supply or the Main board. Price would depend on which one is bad, and model number.

Trying to wire the pump motor. Blue, red, black, white and green. Green is grounded to the frame, but I don't know what the other wires do. Please help.

The black and white wires supply power to the motor so that it rotates clockwise when the machine is in it's wash cycle. The blue and red wires are opposite to the black and white. This makes the motor spin counter clockwise. The machine will be in it's drain mode mode when the blue and red wires are live.

Starts for 4 seconds then shuts off leaving power

The only solution (assuming you are correct to have a known good power supply) is a bad motherboard.

Computer wont start after power outage but green light is on in the back of computer


All the green LED in the back is telling you is that you have power to the computer.

Are there any other "signs of life"? Do you:

1) See any other LEDs on the front panel or on your CD/DVD drive?
2) See or hear any fans running?
3) See a green LED on the motherboard?

If you answer NO to all of these, chances are you lost the power supply. They run $25-$50 for a decent one. Most computer repair shops stock them.

Hope this helps you. In case you can answer YES to any of the above, please comment back.

Thanks for using Fixya.
