When you turn it on does it go red, then yellow, then keeps blinking red

Unplug replug, hold the power button, rough it up a bit, try it all. turn the switch on the back on and off about 5 times this isnt fun but worth a shot too. check power cords for bad kinks in it as well

Check all the fuse. The reason why the scanner wont read is probably the computer is not getting power.

My toshiba satellite a25 s207 trys to power on but wont

Hello sir, the reasons why your power supply wont turn on;
  1. It detected an overload, it is called a switching power supply, if it detects shorts, or something wrong on the mainboard it will not start.
  2. It cannot supply the right amount of current, the power supply is defective.
I had that symptom on my compaq armada, I dissassemble it part by part, then slowly reassemble it, piece by piece making sure all contacts are good and clean. As i power on the unit it turns on without a problem. to do this you should know a little thing about laptops/PCs. hope this helps

Wont turn on

I'll quote GBATemp here:

the ds lite powers up for a brief instant, but then shuts off
potential solution:
disassemble the lower shell and check the connections of upper and lower displays (all three flexible cable connections).

My ps3 wont turn on and i think a disc is inside. what do i do?

I just want to let everyone know that I had the same problem. This isn't a fix to make the machine work again. This is a fix that will let you get a disc stuck in the machine out when the ps3 won't power on. Turn the machine power off via the switch in the back. Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds. Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back. This made my machine power on for about 20 seconds, just long enough for me to get the disc out of machine. I could then take the ps3 back to the retailer I purchased it from. Just to clue everyone in on a possible cause of this problem, the woman from Sony techical support, the one who told me this trick, said that this is happening only when playing Activision games. For me it was Call of Duty 4. Binary Bob

If it immediately dies when you unplug it, your battery has died. the reason that it turns on when you plug it in is that the USB delivers enough power to allow the player to turn on, but not sustain power after it has been unplugged. I would recommend going back to where you bought it (with the receipt) and telling them that you just bought the player and the battery is shot/won't hold a charge. Warranty should cover it because it is a manufacturer error, and not something you did.
