Check power brick. The power cord could be loose. If your ac adapter is red unplug it from the wall, the surge protector and re plug it back in. If problem persist call ms and ask for replacement

When i go to charge my kodak M863 camera (in the wall or by USB) the green light flashes and then the red light blinks 3 times. please help this is the first time charging my camera.


You can used the USB cable to charged the camera, But some of the M863 camera will not take charged usign the USB cable., I strongy suggest used the AC adaptor just make sure the AC adaptor is 5V ac adaptor it will only charged using the 5V adaptor., About the flashing green it indicates camera is charging just wait for the solid green light it means it fully charged

You may purchased also a special charger for your battery(KLIC-7001)- cahrer model is K8600-C. i think the price of this charger is around $29.00

Xbox 360 adapter


The flashing yellow light on the Power adaptor points to a potential failure with the power adaptor. Usually when the adaptor is idle their is a solid yellow light, A red light for a total failure and a green light for on.

A YEllow flashing light would indicate that there could be potential problems with the adaptor overheating and/or being faulty. where is the adaptor located ? just like the console itself. they are prone to overheating and collect dust very easily.

i would suggest moving the adaptor into an area with a large opening to allow the flow of air to keep it cool, also i would attempt to remove any dust inside.

Try doing this and if the problem persists, let me know

XBOX360


Hey 2hitz,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, when the power supply light is red this can typically mean that the XBox 360's external power supply (AC adaptor) has encountered a problem and may need to be repaired or replaced. Most problems encountered are typically limited to an issue where the system has overheated or there is too much voltage/electrical current for the power supply to handle.

I'd first suggest checking to see if the AC adaptor is properly connected to your XBox 360 or is warm to the touch. If the adaptor is hot, you may wish to unplug the adaptor for several hours to cool before reconnecting it to your XBox 360. Even if it is fairly cool, you may still want to see if disconnecting and reconnecting the adaptor resolves the issue. If the power light changes from red to an orange hue once you do, this can mean that the power supply may not have been securely attached and the unit is now in standby mode.

Next, if you have access to a second power adaptor, you may want to see if switching adaptors resolves the issue instead. If the XBox 360 goes into standby mode with a different adaptor plugged in but not the original, then the original adaptor may be defective and be in need of replacement.

Please keep in mind however, that if the lights around the power indicator light are also flashing red this may be a sign of an entirely different hardware problem. If you are seeing any of the lights in the outer ring light up, you may want to take note of which ones (and how many) are lighting up at any given time. Typically one flashing red light in the outer ring may indicate a hard drive problem, two red lights may indicate the XBox 360 itself has overheated, three red lights mean that the unit requires service/repairs, and four red lights mean that your audio-video (AV) cable isn't securely connected.

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, you can always visit Microsoft's knowledge base website for more information and suggestions by using the link I've provided below:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
