Flashing 'A' light?

Hi, I have had my D600 for a few months now and have had no problems until last week when the whole thing suddenly crashed and turned itself off. When I pressed the power switch to turn it back on the screen remained blank and only the 'a' light at the top of the keyboard flashed for a few seconds before the laptop stopped again. I though it was the battery but I have charged, recharged and replaced the battery but the outcome is still the same. I have tried turning the power on everyday since and there is still no power. When I phone help lines all people say is that they dont know what the problem is. Can you help? The problem is becoming really irritating as I have work to do and cant get it done. Thanks.

OMG u NOT NEED A NEW motherboard. the problem is with a loose connection between the ram and the motherboard. The first thing u need to do is figure out which slot (or memory module) is faulty. If the memmory slot is faulty you will have to add solder to the joints going to the motherboard. Or you can try making it work by putting a piece of paper on to of the memmory card that is in the slot that has the problem. I hope this fixes your problem.

The flashing A light indicates a motherboard failure. So you'll need to get the motherboard replaced.

Intermittent Start (expanded explanation)


Lint will jam the start/run switch on the motor. Vacuum out the motor real good and check that the switch moves freely, and all the wires to it are plugged in good.

New PC shutting down with MSI K9A2 mother board


this is a problem complexing situation because here are involved more than one device that causing this, if you have time and parts to experiment is a good think, you have to take out from your board cpu ram and vga-s and put in their place a second component(take from your friend or if you know that guy in service maybe halping you with parts so even him is taking experience of this situations). after testing your Mb with second components if it working fine no shut downs no crahes, then problem is in one of other components, try it taking out second parts one by one eny time, replacing with your components. begin with vga(or vga-s if you have more than one but is better to put it and prove them one by one to diagnose if their have problems) after doing this and you didnt finded problem in vga/s let your part in place and change second ram taht you puted with yours(if have more than a module prove it one by one each time reboting system after each one.) if even in your ram you dont have problems, so change cpu/s. one of this components without dubt is faulty.
if problem resolved and you dont have more problems and didnt find a faulty component and your pc is working fine so it was a miss making.
try all experiments with mother board outside case. some time shrt circuit of Mb with case is causing problem, after try it in case if you dont finded problems, in any way that i told you up.

Camera light stays on samsung g600. tried everything, settings, left battery out. helpppp


I recently had this problem too. It started when i first tried the flash settings on the camera. I woke up the next day, turned my phone on and the light wouldn't turn off.

I discovered that by cycling through each flash option (always on, auto and always off) and taking a photo on each setting would sometimes turn the light off for a few moments before the phone crashed and had to be restarted.

Whilst showing this to a friend last night somehow the light went off and the phone didn't freeze (this might be because i had reset the phone to it's factory settings earlier in the day). The light is now off permanently, although i'm hesitant to use the flash again for fear of causing the whole problem again!

Orange and green light flash


The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps
