    yeah, same problem. My husband has been using the hp pavilion a700n and as soon as i brought it home to my house, i plug in a power cord and it won't turn on. the green light in the back turns on, but no fan, no other lights or sounds, and the power button on the front acts as though i didn't even push it at all. No response there. could there be a secret turn off swith that he could have activiated to prevent me from using it? i have used different power cords that fit well, could it be that i need the exact same power cord that it came with? or will any cord suffice as long as it fits

I have a 55" Panasonic flat screen that won't turn


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

My monitor no display and light is blinking


Hi,
if the monitor light is blinking this suggests that, there is no display signal coming from the tower. This could be because of the following .

1. Bad video card 2. Bad video software

To check,where the problem is , power of the system tower and remove the power cord from the back of the tower. Press and hold the power buttoon for 10 seconds and the reconnect the power cord and turn the tower on. Check if there is any display or the status of the light changes from amber to green for even a small instance.

If the light changes to green and back to amber the video port on the tower is bad

Alternatively you can connect the monitor to another desktop or laptop to check if the same is working correctly.

Thanks for using fixya

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !


If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

Plugged it in to a wall outlet, turned on the computer, the microsoft screen scene appeared, the jingle played, then it turned itself off and won't turn back on.


Unassemble the battery and after 5 minutes reassemble it, then plug it in another wall outlet and when the charging light turn on, turn on the notebook.

Tower won't turn on


Brandi,

Please check the following:

1. Make sure the the surge protector is securely plugged into the wall. Test this by plugging in a light / lamp to it, to make sure it's working.
2. Make sure that the surge protector is turned on.
3. Check to make sure that the power cable from the computer to the power surge protector is securely plugged in.
4. Check to see if the computer will power on now.

5. If this still isn't working, remove the power strip/surge protector and connect the computer directly to the wall.

6. If this STILL isn't working, try plugging your computer into a different outlet in the house to see if the outlet in your home might be bad.

6. If your computer STILL isn't powering on then I'm afraid the worse has happened, which is one of the following issues:

1. Bad power supply (they are cheap, around $20-40)
2. Bad motherboard (they are sort of pricey, around $50-200)
3. Bad CMOS battery (they are cheap, around $5-10)

I can fix all of the above and order parts for all of the above, if you are in need of parts.

I hope this troubleshooting guide helps you! If this resolves your issues, please mark this question as resolved and select my answer. This will assure customers that I can help them with their issues.

Thank you,
