SOURCE: No Boot on 1600sc

The easy answer is: Did you ensure the CPU fan connector is attached to the PROPER motherboard CPU fan power pins? The 2nd easy answer is: Are you sure your CPU is properly placed inside the socket? Could it be tilted slightly up on one side? The more complicated 3rd answer is: I've seen people use the spray can of AIR, which, believe it or not causes a moisture problem AND can overly cool a component. Although the motherboard looks fine, it won't boot or power on until the part(s) rewarm to room temperature or the moisture dissipates. This is how I solve this problem. I remove the motherboard or open it completely up to clean it with 80psi of compressed air. (remove all components) If it had previously been cleaned with a can of AIR, I let it sit for half an hour. When putting the parts back together (leave the HD, the CD, the floppy disconnected), (oh...ensure your front panel connectors are properly on the correct motherboard pins too.) 1)take extra caution with both the video card and the memory chip slots!! Inspect the video card gold edge and video card slot for a few strands of carpet fiber or DUST bunnies wedged or attached to the card/slot (which causes the computer to not power ON) 2) Inspect the memory sticks and memory slots in the same manner. (I had to see it with a magnifying glass, to see the problem) Once back together, if it boots, I'm done. If it didn't boot, I replace the power supply. If that didn't solve it, I reposition or change the RAM memory. Attention to detail is the key to success. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

SOURCE: Poweredge 2600 power supplies in red

Hi

PowerEdge 2600 utilizes a Power Distribution Module (PDM) for power redundancy. The two (Max) Power Supply Units plug into the Power Distribution Module in the front and two power cords at the back from power outlets..

If a power supply lites RED, it indicates the respective power supply unit is faulty (normally) and/or the slot/PDM is faulty (very rear). Given that both power supplies indicated fault the issue may as well be with the PDM.

Check here for help to re-seat the PDM cables. If issue persists consider replacing the PDM.

Let me know if further help is needed

Mike

SOURCE: Powers On if I plug it in, and power supply fan runs...

Think of blinking amber as the initial state of the LED. As long as the system is receiving power from a power source and can pass that power through the system board to the LED on the Control Panel it should, at least, blink amber. As a result, a blinking amber Power Button LED is a reliable indicator that the system is receiving power from a power source. This, in turn, tells us that the source and power cord are likely to be functional. The Blinking Amber LED also tells us that the power supply to system board connection is good as well as the connections between the system board, I/O Panel and Control Panel. Depending on the components installed and the condition of those components, the LED may progress past blinking amber and move to solid amber. If the LED does not progress past blinking amber it indicates that the system is not able to properly distribute power to the system components. This is discussed in the next section of the interaction.


It does not indicate that the power supply is bad. It simply indicates that, for whatever reason, one of the power supply 'rails' is not operating within its specified range or, simply, that there is a short somewhere in the system.
The LED state could be the result of a misconfigured or incorrectly installed system component. A bad drive, for example, may be shorting out one of the rails. Incorrectly installed memory can cause a blinking amber front panel power button LED.

Hi,
Most of the systems will not start back when the system shutdown happens due to some power conflicts.
To resolve your issue, please follow the below steps:
1. Make sure that all the connections to your server is proper now.
2. Press and hold the system Power ON Switch in your server for more than 20 seconds continuously.
3. now release the power button and press it back gently once normally to start you machine.
4. In this way most of the system will be powered up.

Please follow the above steps and let me know your comments. If still the problem persists, then please provide some more information about the problem which you got in following the above steps as that will be useful to assist you back.
Thanks

Orange light keeps blinking on my dell poeredge 2600


Orange blinking light means a component failure.
I had a cooling fan failure and this caused the orange light. When there is a failed fan the other fans RPM is increased to compensate. Is the server fan noise excessive?

Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how.
Good luck!

We have moved our Dell server, Power Edge 2600 to our new office. After powering it on, the monitor and keyboard are not working. Please advise


You computer system is not POSTing, in other words it has failed the Power On Self Test. Since the computer system was moved it is possible that a component is not making proper contact.

Start by removing the side panel of the computer chassis, you will then need to push in all connections. Push in the graphics card and RAM modules, as well as the power connections.

Some-times they come loose and all they need is a push to make good contact. Futher try this if need be, remove the RAM modules and clean the gold fingered contacts with tissue paper before cleaning the RAM slots found on the mainboard. Firmly insert the RAM modules into their slots and secure them with the clips found on each end. Power the system on.

Take care!

Dell Vostro 1000 will not boot.


It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?


you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck
