It is the battery Status indicator and flasing orange light indicates that battery is low. After connecting the charger it should turn solid green, which indicates that the battery is charging and it turns off when battery is charged completely.
If it continously blinks, check out the charger and battery.

if you look at the fuse box you will find a yellow or a silver round canistor plugged into the front of the fuse panel this is a flasher and they (2) control your flashing usually the second flasher is plugged in the back of the fuse box almost exactly where the one on the front is located. these are usually the cause of flashing problems. be aware that it also can be the multifunction assembly inside the colum this is usually fairly expensive to have fixed these assemblies can cost a couple of hundred for the part

I have an HP Photosmart 5160. The red exclimation is blinking as well as the green power button. There are also 2 ink drops present in the screen. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this.


HERE is a link directly to HP's troubleshooting documentation for your model printer and possible solutions. Looks like the ink cartridges are low or empty.

While playing a game my ps3 shut down, and now will not turn back on. the red light is flashing on the front, any suggestions


This is known as the yellow light of death for the ps3 (ironic i know because it blinks a red light). This can be caused by the unit overheating causing solder on the main board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

If the status light is blinking yellow it means the filter cover is open ( On the left side of televison)
If the lamp light is blinking yellow it means the lamp cover door is open. ( Behind front lower panel) If both covers appear intact the switches may be defective or not engaging properly.

Certain DVDs cause my PS3 to shut off and blinking red light


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

If you think the **** player is causing the problem remove it and see if it turns on if not you could try another one and see if it works.

Have a yellow amber light blinking


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
