When you press the power button the red light flickers blue and back to red and nothing turns on


It sounds like you need a new power supply, You and find one on amazon around $14 too $18 dollars maybe less, if that not your issue then it's going to be a fuse but since you can see the light it should be the power supply.

My computer does not start when I depress the button. The light flickers once only.


At CompUSA, they sell an inexpensive power unit checker for around 10 bucks...it will check all the cable outlets for most power units and let you know if you have lost a main power rail.

PC won't power up


Hi! Try to check if there is any power light or any lights on the machine whenever you try to turn it on, also, try to directly connect the power cable directly to the wall outlet.If you have a spare power cable try to use it.If you are getting the same result, try to unplug the power cable at the back of the computer, press and hold the power button for 10 secs and after that plug the power cable back in and then try to press the power button.Check for indicators if the system is getting power for example, check lights, check if the fan is spinning at the back, check if the dvd/cd drive will open or check if the tower is emitting any sound.If still the same and still no light coming from the tower then it might be a issue with either the power supply or the motherboard, you can call your manufacturer and have the machine serviced if its still under warranty.Hope this helps...

Won't turn on...turned off while my son was on it...light around power cord is on, but battery light flickers/blinks 3 times when I push power button. Not sure what to do next.


You can try unplugging the power cord and taking the battery out. Then, re-insert the battery and press On/Off key. This will re-boot your PC.

Pc wont boot up, instead a red light flickers.


Flickering LED means power supply is overloaded with something. It might be inside of the supply, but sometimes it is something else. Try that:
1. Disconnect everything from the motherboard except power supply and power button;
2. Disconnect all power connectors from all drives;
2. Remove any cards from the motherboard so all you have is power supply and motherboard with CPU and RAM, nothing else. You can keep connected the monitor and keyboard;
3. Press Power button. Will motherboard turn on normally?

If no - check electrolytic capacitors especially around the CPU, if some of them are "popped" replace them.
If yes - connect drives and cards one per time to localize the problem.

E-machine 5220 power up


Emachines have notoriously cheap power supplies. Often, while the power supply itself doesn't fail, it causes the failure of motherboard components, essentially trashing the computer.

Try the following:

First check and make absolutely certain that the power switch connector is properly connected to the motherboard. (Take standard grounding/safety precautions: wear a properly-grounded grounding strap, for example, when working with any internal components.)

Obtain a known-good power supply of equal or greater capacity to your eMachines PS and switch 'em out. 

If either of these fixes your problem, well and good. If not, the problem may be, as is all too common with eMachines power issues, a motherboard issue caused by the power supply.

My Hotpoint 960 is 18 months old and has develped a fault where the mains light and programmer display flicker simultaneously, and the machine cannot proceed through the programme. It does not respond to...


Flickering lights might just be caused by loose wires in the mains plug on the machine's power cable. I would suggest checking that first - for some reason the neutral wire seems more likely than the others to come loose. There might be brown / purple marks around the terminal inside the plug if this is the case. Also try replacing the mains fuse in the plug.

While you are there you might also try plugging a normal table lamp into the socket you use for the machine - if the house cabling to the socket is defective the lamp should flicker too.

If neither of these ideas is productive, the problem would appear to be within the machine, so please ask again. Good Luck D.
