Question about HP Pavilion a1330n (EL466AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Won't power up

I turn it on and only one repetitive beep about every 10 seconds. Fans seem to be running harder than normal but it may be my imagination. Power supply voltages are good. No attempt to boot up.

    Rear fan--the one visible through the oval grating under the power supply--will run for a couple of seconds, stop, then run again, stop, etc, etc. Is this normal behavior?

Thats what happened to me when my new RAM sticks weren't the type that my motherboard supports. Take your newley inserted ram stick out if you've put in any. I experienced that again when my bios failed to update. If you did try to update the bios of the motherboard and failed, contact the HP costomer support about how to fix it. If you've manually changed to bios for whatever reason, reset it back to the original state by changing the CMOS jumper position. To do that, refer to your computer's manual. ☺

913T Dishwasher Stops after 10 seconds


913T is a very old model (1996), I have one, I'm not a repairer, I have the same fault. It doesn't have drawers or infrared or a display.
I've just shortened the ribbon cable, which had pinch damage at the door close pinch point. I used a male & female ribbon squeeze connector pair to make a good clean joint. With the cable fault it wasn't even starting the drain cycle. Now it does start, but then long beeps, and I suspect it's detecting a fault with the motor or a sensor or faulty wire, and is halting.
I've found running the rinse cycle first then allows the main wash cycle to run, no longer stopping at 10 seconds (after the initial drain), just as the first power wash commences.

Color Wheel could cause this, it must spin exactly 9,000 rpm per second ,but so can having a bad ballast board it is what powers Lamp on, If you still have the old Lamp and your sure the Lamp was Bad then reinstall old lamp and see if their is an ark coming from Spark Gap on the Ballast Board,
If you see an ark then Ballast is OK.Heres another thing watch the Lamp Fan if it is defective Lamp will not power on, If the Lamp Fan stops when Lamp trys to firer,then replace the lamp Fan.

* beeping is all about processor,try to clean the surface and check the heatsink if still have a paste on it or change the processor for trial and check if the problem is still they same.

* also check the powers supply,voltage might get open. That's why power failure occur.

good luck..

Have new headset, why is the base unit keep beeping at me


Here is an explanation of the beeps you are hearing:

• One beep every 10 seconds is caused by a low battery
warning. Recharge battery by returning it to the base charge
cradle for one to three hours until charge light stays lit or
quits blinking.
• Two beeps is an out of range warning. Move closer to the base.
• Three rapid beeps every 30 seconds indicates your mute is
on. Press the mute button once to turn mute off.
• When an optional lifter is connected, three repetitive beeps
indicate a call is coming into the headset. Press the call
control button on the headset to answer the call.

PS3 not showing up on tv no matter what i do


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings.
I use this method to revert from HDMI 1080p to Composite 576p, without having to swap cables and change settings.

The problem you're describing is a classic symptom of a defective fan--some fans simply have + and - power connections. However, other fans have a third, yellow wire, for sending a pulse to the main board to tell it that the fan is indeed running. If the main board doesn't get the signal, it's internal programming instructions perform a shutdown in case of any error condition--protects the unit against excessive heat, current draw, etc. MAKE SURE THE DUST FILTER IS CLEAN! A dirty filter causes the fan to pull harder, increasing current draw, possibly triggering the symptom. The other possibility is a defective power supply causing an over-current condition. Again, the main board senses this and cues a shutdown. You'll need to send the unit out to a repair facility to confirm a diagnosis. Any reputable shop will give you a quote first with an explanation of the problem.

Beep - Beep - Beep - but No Picture


1. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 2. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. If you try to take a picture before the Flash is charged, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. Once the Flash unit is fully charged (10 seconds), the camera is ready to continue. 3. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries.
