    I have the same problem. My computer was on last night, I woke up this morning and it wont come on. Everytime I hit the power key the little lightning bolt lights up. Any solutions?

    OMG You are a life saver!!! Thank you so much. I removed the battery but left the AC adapter plugged in the first time I tried it and it didn't work. I then tried it without the AC addapter and IT WORKED! You have saved the day!



    Thank you again.

Hi All,


This happens because of static energy storing in the motherboard components.

We can try power drain to resolve this issue.


Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

That should resolve the issue, if the issue persists, then you have to contact service center.


Hope that information helped you!!

Hi Sivareddy,
I own a HP compaq (presario c500) - been just 6 months. The power signal continuously turns on and off when I switch the computer on. The screen is blank and there are no other signals such as battery/charger being displayed. I have tried removing the battery and connected the laptop to AC power only - but to no avail.

Will appreciate your assistance.

How do i set the flash on my vivitar cam. model 8025


Touch the lightning bolt icon in the function area until the flash icon and the letter A appears on the left side of the display. This activates the automatic flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon again until the letter A disappears. This forces the manual flash mode.

Touch the lightning bolt icon again until the eyeball appears on the left side of the display. This activates the red-eye reduction feature.

To turn off the flash function touch the lightning bolt icon repeatedly until the no-flash symbol (lighting bolt in a circle with a line through it) appears on the left.

This is all described in the manual.
