Should be fine. Usualy most CO units blink green to say it is alive and working fine. Double check your paperwork if you are not certain and the from of most of the GE CO detectors say what the lights are for.

Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G - No Power; Blinking green light on power


Try a different known working power supply on that computer, the green light on the power supply should be constant and not blinking. The green light on the motherboard shouldn't be blinking either but if its not getting the right voltage from the motherboard then it will blink as well.

Get a different power supply and see what happens. At that point the power supply green light should be constant, if its not then your motherboard is faulty at that point, if yout the green light is blinking on your motherboard, if both are constant then reseat the memory and CPU and only have the power supply hooked up to the motherboard and not to anything else.

If you still can't get video then at that point you know the motherboard is definitely bad.

Not booting, blinking light


4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.

My GE instajack is not working. It had a greeen signal, now it has a red signal.


Most likely, the extension unit cannot communicate with the
indicator light is solid base unit for one of the following reasons:
red • Base unit has yet to be installed. Install base unit. (Refer to
the Set Up section.)
• Extension is too far from the base unit. Relocate either the
base or extension unit to another electrical outlet. If
indicator light on extension
unit remains solid red, reprogram the link code on extension
unit


Follow these steps:
• Press and hold the button on the right side of the base
unit until the indicator light changes to solid red.
(Approximately five seconds.)
• Release the button, then the indicator light will blink orange.
This creates a new link code and places the base unit into
program mode.
• Follow steps (2) and (3) in the Additional Extension Units
section for all extension units.
• Press and release the button on the base unit to take it out of
program mode. The indicator light will change from flashing
orange to solid green.

I have a Compaq SR 1000 desktop set and I can't get the power to go on. When I plug the unit in a green light in the back keeps blinking. When I disconnect, hold in the power button the blinking stops, but...


Hello shapscomp

The blinking green light is likely your Ethernet card's LED. Is the blinking light located near your Ethernet (network) cable?

It sounds as though your power supply has failed. You may be able to purchase a replacement power supply for it.

Would you like some assistance in deterimining if that is the case?

Thank you

HP Compaq d530


it all depends on the number of flashes , pause, repeat.
Since the problem did not indicate any beeps her is the following info


Power LED blinks RED 2 times, one every second, followed by a
2-second pause. = Processor Thermal Protection Activated


3 blinks 1 second apart = Processor not installed (not an indicator for a bad processor).

4 blinks 1 second apart .= Power Failure (power supply is overloaded)

Other possibilities are:
5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
