I had a power surge the other night and I cannot get my PC to turn back on. The only thing alive is the flashing green "light bulb" icon that is to the left of the power button on the front panel.

Re: Light Bulb Icon Flashing
Unplug it from power.Pull the side cover to check for burnt smell or burnt spots on your board modem or power supply. Unplug the power suppy from the board, unplug the hard drive .
Then plug it all up again , put the cover back on it .Plug power cords back up and try it again.If you get no where after this the surge knocked out your power supply or hard drive or board. Always use a good surge protector on all computers and printer and copiers.

I just replaced my bulb (XL2400) on my rear projection TV. I go to plug the bulb back into the TV and I get the error (red light flashing) that indicates that the bulb or the door is not securely in place. Is there a trick to getting the bulb back into the proper place. I messed around with this for over three hours last night.
