Del 320 optiplex orange lite blinks won't boot up



For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.


1) Your power supply has failed

2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.

3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.


I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.

REGZA 47HL167 TV is difficult to turn on. when powered on the amber lite flashes 3 times then pauses for 1 second then repeats the 3 amber flashes. If I keep pushing the power button on the side,...


3 flashes of the led light at the front panel is means that the unit is in booting process. The symptoms you've mentioned is caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor in the power supply section.
Look for faulty capacitor with bulged, dome at the top and then replaced it with same ratings. If you have a capacitor checker, it will make you more easy to identify the faulty capacitor without a physical indication of fault.

This is my second dockstar, and both have just gone to rapid blinking amber lites. seagate doesn't really tell you any thing.


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png1-If you never shut off the device try to turn off for 4 hours and try to use it again.
2-The bottom light must flash when is on,if not you have a power supply or net cable problem.
3-If the top light is amber is indicate you have a disk problem
4-Do a power cycle
5-if the problem continues run the disk diagnosis utility from the web interface
6-If fails the drive needs replacement, check for warranty
7-Try to do a system reset.Press and hold the switch( a small hole at the bottom of the Ethernet) until the top front light flash and allow the unit to restart.


If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

ERROR LITE FLASHING


this error indicates 1 of the following.

the front cover is open
the back cover is open
paper jam

usually its the back cover, either its not fully closed or the swing gate inside is not in track with the sensor, it has to be pulled out realigned and put back in.)

also possible there is a little piece of paper jammed inside the front or back area.

thanks adi

Lap top is beeping, and then shutting off in the booting up sequence, then battery lite is amber


Defective battery, sounds like it won't hold a charge. Try it without any battery installed, see if it boots on AC power. If it does, I'd suggest a new battery. If not, then there might be a problem with the charging/power circuit on the motherboard itself.
Good luck, and please rate this solution if you feel it has helped!!

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Fuse location on nintendo ds lite


Bottom screen flashing and the unit shutting down is more like a broken top screen or ribbon problem.

The fuse problems usually blink the amber light in your DS each time you connect the charger.

And I am sure you will find a guide looking in google for it, just as I did and there are plenty.

Won't boot up


Can you give a little more information? Did the Laptop Fall? What Color is the light that blinks? Amber or Green?
So far it Sounds to me that you Power Supply is Dead or Bad and or not charging the Battery....

First Check the battery status light?
Is the Power Supply Light (Lite). you might want to try removing the battery and using only the Power supply!
