How can I solve a problem with my Desktop "Dell 330 OPTIPLEX" which lights orange on the power button when I try to power up my computer?


Hi

The symptom you describe indicates a power issue, the most likely cause the PSU in the unit is failing, if you have a lot of USB devices connected try removing some of them, You could also try removeing all connected devices other than monitor keyboard and mouse and see if this will allow it to boot, but the most likely fix is going to be a new Power Supply unit.

How to fix your dead Dell Optiplex-SX280


If the Dell Optiplex-SX280 doesn't boot anymore.
This means totally dead, only clicking sound from internal buzzer and blinking power button led.
Look to the "big" Capacitors top cap.
If they are pushed above you have to replace them.
Fixed, see below link

Del 320 optiplex orange lite blinks won't boot up



For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.


1) Your power supply has failed

2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.

3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.


I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.

Dell mini computer power button blinks orange whats the cause?


Hello,

A blicking power light and no boot indicates one of two things. First, an error on the motherboard caused by failed capacitors or two a power supply that is not putting out all of the correct voltages. To check the motherboard look over this article:

If you don't see any bad capacitors then the power supply will need to be changed.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

IN dell optiplex sx280 model system we are using in this amber power led blinking continuly yellow color because of this not able to boot the system. kindly give the solution for the same


Hi there!

A blinking amber/orange light on the power button of your Dell Optiplex means a hardware failure. If you know how to strip down your computer to basic component, then I suggest you turn on with only the motherboard, processor, memory and PSU. If you are not familiar with this, I suggest you bring the computer to a qualified technician.

Hope this helps

When I start Dell Optiplex 330 only the orange ligt of the start button blinks and nothing else is working. I tried removing the memory (RAM) clean and replace still it is the same.


This is usually an indication of a failed motherboard. This is similar to the Dell 745 at my work, that had the same problem. After running all of the normal tests, I found the problem to be the motherboard.

My computer is blinking orange light


In addition to the power supply, motherboard issues can cause the blinking power light and no boot problems. The Optiplex 270, 520, 620, 745 and 755 units are all known to have issues with capacitors on the motherboard. Here is a link to an article about this issue and what to do about it:
