This indicates that the console is looking for the
CD rom drive . The drive may not have fully closed
fully to activate the open/close switch inside.

First press eject with the console off load a game
and see if that helps .if not remove the game and
try again.

Give that a try.

And let me know how that works .

    First when the green light in the center of the ring of lights is
    blinking this always means there is a problem with the CD rom
    drive . And 99% of the time it's simply two little leaf switches
    that got bent . very easy to fix yourself . you should have thought
    to ask and I would have been more than happy to walk you threw
    it.

No power output or display.green standby light flashes.


Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

My XBOX 360 will not turn on. The power bar has a green light but pressing the eject button or power button on the console will not turn it on. We have tried plugging it in to a different outlet but that...


Hi christoph52893,

If the Xbox 360 power supply light is green, this means the Xbox 360 power supply is ok and it is an issue with the console itself. You will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to service your console. However, if you have a flashing orange or yellow light, it means that your console is fine but instead there is something wrong with your power supply. It indicates that it's not getting enough power.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Power light flashs off and on and pc clicks


Most newer models of Dell computers now have a diagnostic LED surrounding the power button on the from of the computer. When you press the power button to boot the PC, the light should be green and remain green under normal circumstances. Any other lights will help you troubleshoot the power issue you are having.
A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.
A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.
A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.
A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.


So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them. Also pay attention to any unusual beeps or sounds coming from the computer. Well, I was sure that the voltage selection switch was in the right place. And I found it highly unlikely that the processor power cable would suddenly unseat itself. Ugh.
Then I had an idea. I flipped off the surge protector and then flipped it back on. Tada! No more orange lights. Weird. The moral of the story: try the simple stuff first.

I hope this helps and please dont forget to rate my answer. Thank you! :D
