If the flashing amber light doesn't go away, you've got a drive telling you it doesn't feel very well and should be replaced. This is covered in the pre-failure warranty and just place a call to Service to get it replaced.

Will not turn on, on light flashes blue then amber for a second then nothing and it keeps repeating


Hi Andy,

My name is Pradeep and I work for Dell's Social Media Team.

Please turn off the system and unplug only the power cable. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Plug in the power cable and turn on the system. Let us know if the system is booting to windows.

Please let us know if you can hear fan noise from the tower.

Flashing amber light


Hi, on most Dells a flashing amber light on the power button indicates a problem with the PSU or a short on the main power rail, if this is the case you should have 2 flashing lights as well, 1 & 3.

Yellow light shows in hdd of server


This means that HDD is faulty . You can confirm it by re fixing the hard drive .
Shutdown computer > Remove HDD > wait 1 min and Insert it > Start computer .
If you get any of the below status
Steady Amber (Orange Led) = Drive is Faulty
Amber Blinking = Hdd rebuilding

If orange led blinks , it means hdd is in rebuilding state. Wait for sometime and check if it come online . On the other hand (Steady Amber) its time to replace HDD

Good Luck

What is the flashing amber light and how can i fix it on my own


Flashing Amber light might indicate that the power supply is not working correctly. Replace the power supply.
I found a website that sells them and they have pictures to see how the power supply looks like. Open your computer and see which one you have and look around for the best deal.

Bettery problem


Hi,


It could be the battery is already degraded. If the battery is more than 2 yrs. old you could check the battery health meter and see if you need to replace it. Hope this helps

Flashing amber light on printer


Hi,

As you give print command check what is the error msg flashes on ur PC.
Next check whether any paper piece is jammed inside the printer, dust it with Airblower so that cleans out.
Third check the ink levels in both color and black cartdriges.

Canon i320 amber light flashing will not print


I believe that 7 amber flashes refer to a cartridge error. Check that the cartridge is seated correctly.
