Hi,
If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might occur.

Ensure that the voltage selection switch is set to match the AC power at your location, if applicable.

Ensure that the processor power cable is securely connected to the system board.

I have a dell optiplex 330 that is showing blinking amber light when put the system on.kindly advice on what to do to resolve this?


The pattern of the blinking can tell you a lot. if you can get the pattern and then reference the following site it can tell you the cause and some steps to remedy the situation.

Support Article This is a Dell Article that explains the various Blink Codes it covers the entire OptiPlex line, including all the changes that were made through the years.

Another option would be to print out the relevant portion of that page and keep it for future reference as well.

Optiplex 330 power button blking amber


Hello Ricardo,
Unfortunately, a blinking amber power light means your power supply has failed. If your PC is under warranty you can contact dell and have it replaced. If not you will have to replace it yourself.

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 my dell optiplex 330 pc, the power light will be blinking orange and all the fans on the pc do not work but the orange led on the motherboard works.


Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
good luck

Optiplex SX270 LED light code


Hello

The LED code you described indicates a memory failure. Remove and re-install all of your memory. If this does not fix the issue, remove all memory and insert one stick at a time until the unit turns on. Replace faulty memory.

Here is the LED Code guide from Dell...

Switching problem


If the power light is flashing either yellow or orange and you do not hear any fans turn on, your power supply is defective. Contact Dell if you are still under warranty and if not, there are many 3rd party sites, like http://www.pcconnection.com, that you can purchase a new one.

Good luck to you.
