Magnavox plasma model-50mf231d/37. I turn the unit on and it turns itself off. The red light flashes 6 times, pauses then repeats flashing 6 times. I have already unplugged the unit to reset several times, even waiting 2 hours to no avail. It started after a 5 second power outage. Please help.

    Thanks for the help, but I already had it fixed for $279.00. A new one would have cost $1300.00+. You do the math

Ways to fix red lights blinking four times


Red Power LED

every two
seconds.
OR
Red Power LED

times, once
every second,
followed by a
two second
pause.
None Power failure
(power supply is
overloaded).
1. Check that the voltage selector,
located on the rear of the power
supply, is set to the appropriate
voltage. Proper voltage setting
depends on your region.
2. Open the hood and ensure the 4-wire
power supply cable is seated into the
connector on the system board.
3. Check if a device is causing the
problem by removing ALL attached
devices (such as hard, diskette, or
optical drives, and expansion cards).
Power on the system. If the system
enters the POST, then power off and
replace one device at a time and
repeat this procedure until failure
occurs. Replace the device that is
causing the failure. Continue adding
devices one at a time to ensure all
devices are functioning properly.

I have an HP Compaq PC. A d530s running Windows XP Professional. When I turn the PC on, the power light flashes red 4 times (1 red flash per second). Pauses ~3 seconds and repeats the red flashing. Just...


A bad power supply, OR a bad motherboard. And I hate to tell you, but it's more common for the motherboard to fail first. Especially in those HP/Compaq slimline PCs.

It's because there's very little airflow, and system overheats and burns out. I've had many customers with the same issue.

The good news is you can still recover your data from the hard drive, just take the drive out, and hook it up inside another desktop with SATA connections, or get a SATA-to-USB adapter, they cost about $15

Computer shut down and red light flashing five times then three second pause and repeats


According to the troubleshooting guide for this model, the red light flashing five times indicates a problem in the RAM (memory), before the video subsystem is ready. You may just need to open the case and make sure the memory sticks are fully locked in their slots. If you just added new memory, it might not match the required specs.

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)

Cause Pre-video memory error.

Solution
1.
Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.

2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.

3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.

Computer will not start


It all depends how many beeps there were.
From http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML
Diagnostic LED Explanation Table Number of 1-second red LED blinks followed by 2-second pause, then repeats:
2-processor thermal protection activated
3-processor not installed
4-power supply failure
5-memory error
6-video error
7-PCA failure (ROM detected failure prior to video)
8-invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode

I have only really come across 4 beeps = order new Power Supply or 5 Beeps = reseat the memory and hope it works

Regards,

Oli

it all depends on the number of flashes , pause, repeat.
Since the problem did not indicate any beeps her is the following info


Power LED blinks RED 2 times, one every second, followed by a
2-second pause. = Processor Thermal Protection Activated


3 blinks 1 second apart = Processor not installed (not an indicator for a bad processor).

4 blinks 1 second apart .= Power Failure (power supply is overloaded)

Other possibilities are:
5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
