Your Model of Dell Poweredge 1800 server may not have a redundant power supply. The power supply is the most like cause of the problem. order a replacement power supply and replace the faulty unit.

Dell 1800 poweredge when I press the button does not start, I can see green light on one of the display. what cause not to boot up?


you might want to check the power supply unit first, as it is very common for them to burn out and not supply the correct power to start up the server..
the 2nd thing i would do, is do a visual inspection of the motherboard , looking for any traces of burns, if any are found, replace the server.

No power on my PowerEdge 1800 Server


dells power supplies must come from dell. I would call dell and give then the service tag number of your server and they will be able to tell you about how much a power supply is.

Power edge loght is red and blinking


You should be able to see the reasons in the front panel, remove the front cover and you will see a small display with some information passing slowly. Sometimes is just the redundant power-supply that is disconnected.

Someone has pushed the system identification button on the front of the server. If you push it again the light will be solid blue.

Hi satti73,
I need you to explain your problem a little more clearly.
I think you are saying that when you press the ON/OFF you get a display? What is the display that you get? How old is this machine? What other events have taken place leading up to this problem. Do you get and error messages on the monitor? DO you get any sort of sound emitting from the server when you press the ON/OFF butoon?
