EMachines are known to have cheap/bad power supplies.
If you have access to an extra good working supply you can disconnect the power supply from the computer with out removing it (unpluged of course), and connect your good one as a test.
Power supplies are very inexpensive off of sites like Newegg, Pricewatch, etc.

Do this right away.
You don't want a bad power supply to burn out your motherboard, and, or, CPU and end up costing you more to replace.

Also It could be possible something is overheating too and causing the machine to shut down.
Open the side panel and make sure the CPU fan is spinning freely when the power is on.
Some times what happens too is a machine can get so full of dust, dirt, and, or pet hair that the whole CPU fan and heat-sink get blocked so air can flow through and around them.

Dimension 2350, on stARTUP ONLY


Remove the power cord, remove the case and look inside the computer at the capacitors. See if any of them are busted or leaking corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers but they are not as tall as AA or AAA batteries.

Gx270 tower mother board amber LED solid on


If the fan is not spinning this can be the issue ...but it can also be the motherboard itself ..if you have the possibility try to change the fan ..cause if it fails to start the computer will also fail cause the cpu it will shut down the system instantly if it has no cooler working ..(gets to the shut down temperature in one sec or so ) If it seams that it is trying to start ..but , like I said , it shuts down ..just try to change the fan ...but it may be a issue with the power supply or the motherboard as well...

For dish when i use the control for one TV my other TV also changes to the same channel...how do i fix that?


It sounds like you are either in single mode on the receiver or Shared View. Look on the front of the receiver, you should have an amber and green light lite. The amber light should be lit under with 2 boxes. It is probably lit under the single box. Locate the Mode button on the front of the receiver (probably to the right front. Press the Mode button until you see the amber under the 2 boxes or the blue light comes on. When all 3 lights are lit, the receiver is in dual mode.

If you have any other problems, please let us know. Thanks.

MY DELL IS OPTIPLEX 760SFF, IT NOT BOOTING, SHOWING AMBER LIGHT ON THE POWER BUTTON WHEN PLUG TO POWER.


Hi,
If this the light is solid amber in the front of the computer.Try doing the following steps

1. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the system tower. Press the power button on the tower 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the power cable to the back of the system tower and power it back on.

If the amber light is on the monitor power button and the tower power button is off or blinking amber it could mean that it is a bad power supply.

Hi when i start up my packard bell imedia i get a red light on my tower my fan is spining and my monitor is on a amber light plz help


Assuming the monitor is fine you can try the following:
  1. Open the machine and reseat the video card; if video card is onboard try
  2. Unplug the machine and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes; Its possible Windows didn't shut down properly and CMOS is preventing a normal startup; after replacing the battery, boot up (will probably start up in safe mode
If neither of these fixes the problem, you may have an issue with the monitor itself. Best of luck.

Blinking Amber light on the tower


If it is one the front near the power button, it indicates power supply is failing...and other indicator is the motherboard is failing.
Now if it is in the rear where the ethernet cable hooks up...solid amber means you are connected, blinking amber means activity on the line...no problem there- very normal. I hope it is in the rear.
Please leave rating, thank you

Emachine shut down


No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.
