Hi. Tonight I had a problem with my laptop. It was in sleeping mode, and when I open the lid there were no mouse function and no touch screen function. So the only thing I could do was to press the power button for 3 seconds to turn it off, but it didn't completely, because the screen turn off, but the power button light is blinking just like when it is on sleep mode, and I'm not sure if the hard drive light was on, off or blinking before this, but now is blinking. I press the power button and nothing happen, I press it for 3 seconds and nothing happen. I even did the HDMI connection to another monitor, but both monitors don't show anything, not even recognize that something is connected to the HDMI port in the new monitor. There is no sound, nothing, just the 2 blinking lights. What should I do? Thanks PS: I'm not sure if it's Windows 10 32-bit or 64-bit. It was upgraded from Windows 8

When closing the laptop, it goes into sleep/hibernate mode, but the power button keeps blinking. Many times I use the laptop at night right before sleeping but the blinking light is extremely bothersome in the otherwise dark room. Is there a way to disable this?

Answer:Disable blinking power button light

I don't think there is a way to turn off the blinking light. It happens on all Hp laptops when they go into sleep. (the power button keeps blinking but not on hibernation).

I have a Satellite P755-103. I upgraded the BIOS from version 2.6 to version 2.7 (file bios-20121002102409.zip) dated 17-09-2012. Since then, I noticed the light in the power button started to act randomly. It usually is on, sometimes it dims, sometimes it goes off, sometimes it blinks. I could not find any apparent reason for it. It also happens during the BIOS pre-boot phase, working on battery and working with the power supply on.

Any advice?

Thanks,
Paulo Pereira, Portugal

Answer:Satellite P755-103 power button light blinking randomly

Hi

Are you sure you are talking about power LED indicator and not HDD indicator.

The first from left is the DC indicator and it glows white when power is being correctly supplied from AC adaptor.

The 2nd from left is power indicator and it glows white when the computer is turned on.
But if you turn off the unit and goes into sleep mode, this led flashes amber.

The 3rd is battery indicator.

The 4th from left is HDD / CD/DVD drive indicator and it blinks whenever the notebook is accessing the HDD or reads from disk

My fiancée's HP G62 laptop suddenly stopped booting. More specifically, when you press the power button, the power light comes on, but the screen stays totally black. I tried doing a hard reset on it (unplug, remove the battery, and hold power button down for 60 seconds), but that didn't work.  I tried this multiple times with no success. I shined a flashlight on the screen to see if there was a faint image (indicating a backlight problem), but there is no image at all. I tried connecting the computer to an external monitor, and that didn't work either.   Recently I had to replace the fan and the power button assembly on this machine, but it was working fine after that until now.

I have a Dell Latitude E5250. When plugging in the AC adapter the only light that comes on is the power button light and it's blinking continuously. The other indicator lights are off. The system board has been replaced, no change. After the system board was replaced the battery indicator light came on and the battery charged, though the laptop would not power on when the power button was pressed. It would light up then go out.  I've removed the battery and AC adapter, held down the power button to discharge flea power, no change. Followed Dell TechDirect directions to remove the battery and CMOS battery, then insert the AC adapter and power on the laptop, no change. I've tried known good RAM. I've removed all components including the LCD cable, no change. When the AC adapter is installed the power button light blinks continuously, no pattern, no other indicator lights come on. Any thoughts? I'm wondering if it's a video issue, bad Touch LCD?
Thanks.

My Nokia Lumia 925 has had its power button broken for quite some time, but I've adjusted to this problem and barely notice it anymore. However, when it was in my pocket today, it has done the thing where the sensor has sensed black for too long or something and now the screen is black, but the buttons still light up and the camera button still works. I know I have to do a restart, but you need a power button for that. Is there another way, or will I have to let the battery drain before plugging it in? If I remove the SIM card, would that work?

Answer:Nokia lumia 1320 flash turns on when power button is pressed

You should attempt a Hard Reset.
Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down
You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do loose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.

Backups can get stuck when the old data is corrupt. You can go online to onedrive and view your backups and delete the old one. You'll then be able to backup with a fresh copy.
How old is the phone? If it's under 24 months, you cam send the phone away for repair. The button is probably not lined up with the actual button on the circuit board and would need to he put back into place.

Answer:Sony Vaio Charger light blinking, won't turn on.

Reading your post I get the impression that you connect the charger when it is on already, instead of connecting the charger, then switching on at the mains? If so then either you've damaged the motherboard or the socket.
One thing to try is to remove all power source (mains and battery) then press and hold the power button on the laptop for 30 seconds. This time just connect the charger and try to boot up.

It might be that the power supply is wearing out and unable to provide maximum power draw. Another case is that the power supply gets very hot that it limits the power draw to prevent melting. You can get a spare power brick here

I don't understand my charger port. I think maybe some chargers aren't meant for the WP. It will charge no problem with some, some just stop charging for no reason, some you have to prop up a certain way to get it to charge. I think the port is kind of loose. I can continue to use the chargers that work but if I keep running out of chargers then I don't know what else to do.

Either your connector on your phone is loose or your connector on the charger.

Hi there people! First of all my best wishes, and a happy blessed new year to all!
I tried to find more info on the stock charger for my nokia lumia 800, but i could not get further than finding AC-16, no info on voltages or anything of that sort.
I recently received a tablet as a Christmas present, and it has a US plug on it which i cannot use over here in Europe. It's a micro USB charger just like the Nokia one, but it does list info on it as follows:
DC Output: 5V/2A/10 Watt
Input Voltage: 100~240VAC
Input Frequency: 47~63Hz
Cannot find those specifics on the Nokia charger, so i was hoping someone could help me determine if it was safe to use it on my tablet.

Hi. I have a Toshiba Satellite L40. It's kinda old, but I've always been able to get it to work. It's battery is shot, so I've been using it plugged in all the time (which is okay, since I don't move it around that much). It's originally charger went bad a while ago, so I bought a new one from Toshiba (it's a better one, in my opinion since it has an LED indicator).

It's been fine for roughly a year, but suddenly went crazy an hour ago. It stopped providing power (the power supply light on the laptop is off), and the LED on the charger is blinking rapidly. When it's plugged in to the outlet, but not to the laptop, the LED on the charger is a steady, bright green.

But the moment I plug the tip in to the back of the laptop, it starts blinking. Since the battery is shot, I quickly lost power and now my laptop is completely drained and inoperable. I've tried removing the battery and plugging it in, but the same thing happens. Also, when I unplug it from the socket, the charger retains enough power to stay on for a maybe 20 seconds (and it's the same thing: steady if it's unplugged on both ends, blinking if it's still plugged into the laptop, even if it's unplugged from the socket).

Has my charger or laptop gone bad? Or is there just something to fix? I've tried unplugging everything for 45 minutes to let it discharge and cooldown, but no luck. Should I wait some more? Thanks.

Powering off and re-powering rarely helps it just have to be left alone and comes on whenever if ever.. Thanks for help

Answer:The power light keeps blinking and the harddrive light is on

Try a new signal cable from PC to monitor.If no change, try a new graphics card.If still no change, test the hard drive with "Seagate SeaTools for DOS".Click the "Download" tab here: http://www.seagate.com/support/down...The download is an ISO file, so you'll also need to install "IMGBurn" from here:http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn/Use IMGBurn to create a CD from the ISO file, then boot your faulty computer from it. The testing program will open. Select the hard drive and test it. If it fails the test you need to replace the hard drive.If hard drive passes the test it's okay, so test the RAM modules with "Memtest86" which is also an ISO file, so you need to create a CD from that too:http://www.memtest.org/

If it doesn't start, try a soft reset by long pressing both volume down and power buttons until the phone vibrates and restarts
If that fails, connect with a pc and see what happens

I just bought a HP Pavilion DM4-2015dx laptop a few days ago.  Turning it on this morning, it won't boot and the Caps Lock light  is blinking.  I have searched the HP site and Google for a solution to the problem and have found nothing to tell me what the blinking light means or why it won't boot up.  Does anyone have an idea of what the blinking light on the Caps Button means?

I have a Dell Dimension E510 that as of yesterday, won't power up anymore. The power light blinks orange and the computer does nothing when the power button is pushed or held in. It's about 16 months old and is out of warranty, so I'm trying to diagnose the problem myself.

I did some searching on the internet and found that this seems to be a common issue on these Dells, sort of a long term infant mortality issue. The most common causes seem to be a bad PSU, MOBO or a shorted USB input.

I've done some diagnostic checks/testing so far and am now stuck. Here's what I know.

- The USB ports don't appear to be shorted. I also disconnected the connector for the USB (which includes the power switch :banghead and it doesn't change any of the results that follow.
- I removed the power supply and jumped Power On (terminal 14, green wire) of the main ATX connector to ground. The fan comes on and all voltages (3.3, 5 and 12v)check out, including around 5.35v at Power Good (terminal 8, gray wire).
- With the power supply back in and everything connected, there is only 3.3mv at Power Good. As I understand it, this would normaly point to a bad power supply; however, all of the voltages check out when the unit is disconnected from everything.

Is is still possible that the power supply is bad, or is it more likely (or definitely) that the MOBO is the culprit.

Any help, including suggestions for additional testing is greatly appreciated.

My Inspiron 15R N5110 won't come on. I've tried both battery and 2 different ac adapters. I've removed the battery, unplugged it, and held the power button for 30 seconds to discharge the system, but it still won't come on.
I took the laptop apart and everything looks alright, but the DC jack was slightly brown on top so I replaced the DC jack board. It still won't work.
I made sure the connections are tight (the DC jack and other USB board) by screwing them down. The only thing that happens that shows any life is when the battery is in. The power button, power indicator light in front, and the little "gears" light blink white for just a moment, then off, about every 5 seconds.

Any ideas? If I have to replace the motherboard, what is the difference between 0G8RW1 and 0VVN1W? I'm not worried about the product key not validating - may even put Windows 8 on it.
Thanks!

Try the following...

1. Take out (or take it off) the charger.
2. Next take out the battery
3. Now hold down power button for 20 seconds and then rinsert battery.
4. Now put it on the charger again

NOTE: Make sure charger is plugged into the main power supply (not an extension cord, surge protector, etc.)

Sometimes, when the device is not plugged in directly, it doesn't get the power it needs. Holding the power button, while you restart it, clears out the temporary ram (no it won't delete anything you have saved) and will give the device access to the ram it needs.

I have a Sony VGC-RB42G computer. I recently moved my computer, cleaned off all the dust, and when I plugged everything back in, it won't power up. The light on the power supply blinks green, inside the motherboard also has a green light that blinks as well. It has a ticking sound too, but I am not sure if it is coming from the power supply or the motherboard. Any idea what could be wrong.

FYI, I have already unplugged everything from the power supply, pulled out the ram, checked the battery, and put everything back together and still no change. One thing I thought was strange was after I unplugged everything, I pulled the power into the power supply again and this time the green light came on but did not blink. It stayed solid.

Hello. I have an Ativ-s, as you can understand from the forum section where I am posting.
I live in Italy, and have to travel in Scotland for just 4-5 days. I simply want to know if it safe to use an EU/UK power adapter for the charger, or if it's better to buy an UK Ativ-s charger (I even don't know the model name for the UK charger)?

Answer:Safe to use EU/UK power plug adapter or I have to buy an UK charger?

Same voltage all over Europe but the male end of the charger isn't the same in the UK as it is on the Continent, you'll need an adaptor plug not a different charger. You can get the adapter at a kiosk that has mobile phone accessories or at an electrical shop.

Hi Wacky78900,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Y500 Laptop is not turning ON after playing game and turning OFF manually, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and check the issue. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.

If the issue persists even after performing the Flee-Power and as the computer is in warranty, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance. Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best Regards

I have a Dell XPS 13 that had the motherboard replaced a few months ago.  When attempting to boot the front led blinks amber twice, then white twice repeatedly. The device will start up but never boots to the dell logo or the Windows OS. This is with the AC plugged in and also with the internal battery plugged in.  After a few months, I had the same issue with the laptop yesterday.  Is there another issues other than the motherboard or could it be that the "refurbished motherboard" came from another defective Dell XPS 13 9350?

I have a Stream laptop that isn't working properly.  When it turns on, the power button lights up and stays lit but nothing is displayed on the screen.  There is a light next to the power jack on the computer which is blinking rapidly after turn on.  I found this site on the HP support page which outlines a few ways to try and troubleshoot the problem.  Based on this page, it's either the AC Adapter or the battery.  The AC Adapter I have does not have any light on it so it's hard to know which of the two parts is faulty.  I used a voltmeter to test the AC Adapter's output and it is outputting the correct voltage.  These leads me to believe that it's an issue with the battery, but I was just curious if there's any way to be certain before I go purchase a new one when it might be something else at fault.  Any advice would be appreciated.

At first I thought my computer was just in sleep mode, but after hitting a couple keys that was not the case. Is there a setting some where that would cause this. I know it's a minor issue but damn that LED is bright.

Answer:Blinking power light

As a test you could try turning Fast Startup off, Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8
The Fast Startup uses a hybrid sleep mode and that may be why your power LED is blinking.

I have a dell mini 10v that uses windows xp. week before last i noticed that my computer's power light was blinking red. what could be causing this problem? when I touch the charger, ever so lightly, or barely touch the pc, the computer will power off. after jiggling the wire to the charger, the power light comes back on, and is blinking red. sometimes i do not even have to touch the pc, it powers off on its own.

i then have to press the power button for the computer to start up.

i was told i needed a new charger, which i purchased, but the power light is still blinking red. i went to the power option and my battery is at 55% and does not change. what is causing this? do I need a new battery? i checked to see if my power option was set on stand by. it was and so i changed it, but the light is still blinking red. does anybody have any suggestions?

i was told t remove the battery for a few minutes and then reinstall, but i cringe at having to do that. the screws in the back are so small i am not sure i can even get the panel out, but if i have to, then i will.

what should i do? thanks for the help

Hi I'm using an Advent 7111 Laptop using Windows XP Media Centre SP2.
I have an Orange Livebox wireless router (formerly Wanandoo I believe) and I can connect wirelessly on my laptop just fine when it is running on just the battery. As soon as I plug in the power adaptor/charger, the wireless connection disconnects. When I hover the cursor over the wireless connection logo in the bottom right corner (system tray i think it's called) it says the connection strength is excellent!? But even when it says it is excellent strength I still can't sign to Windows Live Messenger or surf the web! Please reply ASAP please!!!
 

Answer:Wireless network diconnects when I plug in the power adapter/charger!?

I did that to myself once when I carelessly put the power supply too near the wireless adapter.

If your power supply is not within inches of the adapter, and not in the direct path between router and adapter's antenna I'd guess you have a serious problem with the power supply or with the overall wiring in your house. Try plugging into the same outlet as the router.

Just disassembled my Z580 to check why it wasn't starting up (another thread) as I figured if I'm going to have to get a independent engineers report I might as well open it myself at the same time. Followed all the steps as outlined in the hardware maintenance manual and found no sign of any hardware damage/power surge/blowouts anywhere. I then reassembled the laptop using the same guide (with no extra screws) and placed the battery in (just to confirm I took out the motherboard battery once I could and reinserted it when I was closing up). Much to my confusion and relief that there is some sign of life, the power button, power light, battery light and caps lock light are flashing in that order. A couple of times when I press the power button the touch sensitive volume buttons also flashed, but that's only when I press the power button sometimes. I can't find any info on these lights online. Any quick help would be appreciated

I tried switiching out a different cable, a different wall plug, and waiting a lot, etc. Well it's definitely the PSU - but i'm not sure if that's it.

I want to go get it repaired cause i'm a noodle amed choir girl with no hardware experience, but i don't know if i should just get the psu replaced or should i look at a new motherboard too? the sound wasn't working yesterday, and i'm not sure about the keyboard incident, but it'ss just started giving me all this trouble.

Answer:Y580 Blinking power button led and power supply turns off

Hi,
How many watts is your power brick rated at? I had a similar issue when I used a brick from another laptop. It had the right voltage and the same plug, but it was delivering less power than the original one. When doing basic office stuff it was working fine and charging the battery, but when gaming it would work fine for 2 minutes and then display the same symptoms as your Y580.
Hopefully you ordered the right, more powerful brick. I think the right one is rated at 90W, but I'm not sure.

Got a 3 prong ac/dc charger that claims to be compatible with the charging specs on my laptop. The led on the dc half of the charger is on but now the charge/power indicator light doesn't come in at all. It's the only laptop I have.

I press the power button and the light will blink on for a second and then go right back off. The monitor is unresponsive. When I plug in the charger the indicator light is lit orange and remains orange.

Could it be some hidden settning?

Answer:Why doesn't my Lumia 930 accept any Qi charger anymore?

No there is no "hidden" setting. But inside the phone there are contact points from the back cover to the battery/motherboard and maybe that contact is bad. Try to push on the backside maybe that will help and check if the cover is well connected on the body of the phone.
Furthermore check if it also does not work on another qi charger to be sure it's not qi charger related.
The phone still should be under warranty so if above does not work sent it for repair/replacement.

I was upgrading this computer to Windows 10, I had done an in place install but the kids had spyware that was showing up even then. I did a refresh, it failed I did an install and finally got into windows. Installed a couple updates and rebooted.
The computer has been bricked since. The only thing that is happening is the LED that indicates the power above the button will not stop flashing white. Plugged in or not plugged in, after holding down the power button for 5, 10 and 30 seconds, The power light stops flashing for a moment and then starts again. I tried multiple outlets. No clue unless it is coincidental hardware failure.

Answer:XPS 18 will not boot, power light will not stop blinking

I'll ammend that.  I went back in and re-removed the battery cable.  I also removed the CMOS battery cable this time... that at least got me to an onscreen error message and access to BIOS!

The other day I decided to turn my envy off for the first time in roughly a week. I usually just leave it on, plugged into the charger, putting it into sleep mode when im not using it. For some reason, ever since then I have not been able to turn it back on. Whenever I press the power button, The power light blinks. The pattern is a single short blink every 3-5 seconds. This continues until I take the battery out. Sometimes, if I leave it be for a day or so, I am able to get the computer to turn on, but It will not boot. I can hear the fan going, see the lights turn on as they are supposed to, however the screen remains black. I am under the impression that this either a hardware issue, or the CPU is just toast. either of which would suck. Normally I would take to a computer shop and have them look at it, but right now I'm serving in Iraq, so im SOL. And yes, I have tried everything under the sun to get it running. I have taken the battery out and left it out for an extended period, tried turning it on with and without the ac adapter plugged in, tried to perform a hard reset, and a combination of all of them.

Answer:My ENVY 15t will not turn on. I get a blinking power light e...

Last thing to try is remove the cmos (RTC) battery overnight, put it back in, if you get the bios post screen immediately enter the bios and set the date and time (before windows loads)  If you get it working, download the latest bios and install it. Then the latest grahics driver. Service manual for the 15t-1200
