Satellite does not - the power light flashes

I tried to turn on my laptop and there is a yellow light where the green power light should be, and he won't even be able to until this could be



What laptop do you use?

Seems the laptop provides a blink code. This means that a material error has been detected.
Usually short blinking means 0 and a long time means 1.
The authorized technician must be able to read such a code and to locate the hardware failure.

Above all it s something wrong on the motherboard!
Then I n t think you will be able to fix it. This is not possible if you have no experience and the right tools and parts of s.

So in my opinion, you must contact the ASP in your country for assistance!

Good luck

  • Portege M100 does not start - power light flashes orange

    Hi all

    I have a Portege M100.
    Since ysterday, the computer does not boot. When I push the power button, I hear the noise of the fan starts working, but nothing else happens. The power light continues to blink in orange.
    I removed the battery and tried to turn on the computer with the AC adapter is plugged in, but nothing changes.

    Any ideas on what could be the problem? I would appreciate help,
    Thanks in advance


    Hi mate,

    could possibly be the RAM, so please check the RAM modules and remove 1 module if you have 2 of them installed.
    Otherwise, I check if some another module of RAM is available and install the module of well known work. If this is not sufficient then I strongly recommend you to bring your machine to a service partner chartered for a balance of health/repair of equipment.

    Please give some information about your situation...

    P.S.: you can try to remove the battery and AC and leave the machine without power for about 24 hours. Maybe it helps?

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not start - power light flashes


    I have a Satellite Pro 6100 when I press the power button and HDD lights up briefly then powerlight blinks.
    It seems to Flash a pattern: on (2 sec) flashes (2 seconds) then off (about 8 times)

    What he told me? No fan, no display no hardrive is active.
    Food is ok because it load battery.
    I bought it as it would be something easy to fix ideas?


    It sounds bad
    Generally, the power led will blink due to a malfunction of the equipment.
    The LED provides a microcode and only the technician can read this code.
    A common user is not able to read.

    Maybe you'll be able to read this code, but you won't find any description about the meaning of the code.
    I recommend you contact the technician in your country

    But try this:
    Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter.
    Wait severla times and then plug in the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
    If this does not help, you have aks, a complementary technician...

  • Tecra 9100 does not start, power light flashes

    My tecra 9100 is boot is no longer, when I press the button works / laptop acts although it will start up (only for a second sheet) but instead completely stops and the light starts flashing in a sequence of (short 2, 1 x long, 2 short, 2 long, 1 short). I really need help, and I was wondering if anyone has had the problem before and knows how to solve this problem.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Thibault

    I'm afraid that there is a problem with the electronic board. When the power led is flashing, it sends the hex code. This code should help technicians to see what the problem is with the laptop.

    Only thing you can do is remove the battery and try to boot up your laptop. I don't think this will help, but you can try. If the same thing occur, you must contact services partners in your country and ask for help. Sorry! :(

  • Satellite 2805-S201: AC power light flashes orange 8 times


    I worked on a Satellite 2805-S201 and everything was fine until I put a PCMCIA wireless with 3, 3V power.
    After that, the AC power light flashes orange 8 times and recycle.

    It comes with power supply, battery, AC and no battery installed, etc. If I pull out the power plug and the battery and then put both when AC is green and the battery may charge. As soon as I push the power button, I hear a light click on the right side of the device and then it goes into the amber cycling power.

    Bulletins of support mentioned that the card could get damaged, but did not mention the unit itself.
    No, the PCMCIA card is not always connected

    Any thoughts?



    The flashing provides a micro code which refers to the hardware failure.
    But please don't ask me what might mean this code because in my opinion, only an authorized service provider can be read and can check in his manuals and documentations.
    But it is of course, in most cases, it s a hardware problem of motherboard! ;(

    Perhaps the external PCMCIA card was not totally compatible and damages of something on the map but it's only my personal suggestion to ensure what s bad hardware fault diagnosis would be necessary.

  • Reference DELL INPIRON - sense of the power light flashes (4times orange short, 1 long white period)

  • Laptop does not - the power adapter light flashes three times? G62 b29SA

    I was replacing the fan in my friend's laptop computer. I had a problem with the trackpad works not once I put back it together and this problem is not yet solved, but I have another problem that prevents me from getting more. Now when I press the button, the light power adapter (next to the socket for external power) flashes three times and that's it. It flashes three times, whenever I press the power button. It does this even with a connected external power supply (I'm sure it's supposed to just stay on constantly when the charger is plugged in but the power source I have is a universal set of one to 19 V - he was fed up with this trendy before but I don't know if it was taken in charge of it). Any advice?

    I have the charger of my friend and now it starts very well. There seems to be a lot of sense for the three flashes based on my Internet research, but in this case, it seems that it is a way to indicate a low battery.

  • Satellite A100-225: battery power light flash orange

    Last night, plugged my AGES of NINE DAYS by Satellite A100-225, the lights were on, it was working fine.

    This morning, woke up, lights were turned off, tried to turn it on, the battery power button flashed light Orange.

    Tried to play with the cable by plugging it into other outlets that I knew worked, nothing helps.

    Have tried to start without the battery in it, without success.

    Unless there is a function that can prevent from starting somewhere, I don't know what to say. This computer is nine days old, and I do not understand how something can just wrong all night.

    Adding info if necessary - computer was on when I went to sleep, and was running Mozilla Firefox and WinAMP.


    Perhaps the unit automatically goes in standby mode or hibernation?
    On this device, the automatic system standby/hibernation has been reinstalled. This function automatically stops the system when there is no input or material of access for a specified time. You can specify the time and select System standby or hibernation in the base of the Toshiba power saver settings tab.

    In addition, if the battery LED is flashing it means that the battery charge is low. The adapter must be connected to the battery.
    If it of not possible to charge the battery, so there are several possibilities: the battery could be dead, the AC adapter doesn't work or there is something wrong with the hardware of the laptop.

    Try disconnecting the battery several times and then connect.

    But according to your ad you tried a procedure and it doesn t work. So I think you should ask the ASP in your country to help.

  • I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2088dx, and the power light flashes constantly, that means?


    I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2088dx and have had for a little less than two years now.  About 8 months ago, I replaced the original battery with a long life Rayovac battery.  Recently my laptop power light has been constantly intermittently to about 1 flash every 2 seconds, regardless of the level load and/or if its plugged to the power source.  What exactly my computer is trying to tell me?  Thanks for the help in advance


    I found the link to your question.  I hope this helps.

  • Satellite L655 unbootable, the power light comes on, the fan runs, black screen

    Hello! Please help with a problem my laptop loading. The laptop is turned on, the light indikatorr of power and a second disk hard drive indicator, the entire screen is black on it there is no sign and lighting. Probably flew BIOS.

    It is possible to load a new BIOS without this feature the with by pressing any key on the keyboard to boot from the USB drive?

    Did you do something that might be responsible for such behaviour of the laptop? Have you tried updating the BIOS maybe?

    For me, this looks like screw at the top of the BIOS.

  • HP dv7-3085dx power light flashes, but the laptop does not work.

    Hello! I have a HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx. It has a hard drive Bay 2.

    Recently, I bought the caddy + cable kit and an Intel SSD. The thing is, when I plug the sata cable to the motherboard for the laptop, and the SSD to it, the laptop does not light. When I press the power button, it flashes once (the power LED flashes once), but the laptop does not light. When I press again, nothing happens.

    I tried to remove the power supply plug, battery and plug it all again, but the power light flashes once (when you press the power button) and no reaction.

    Maybe it's the sata cable: when I remove the new cable and connect the SSD with the sata cable on the 1 hard drive Bay (the cable supplied with the notebook), it works fine. The laptop starts. And when I connect the former sata cable, with the SSD on the second hard drive Bay, it also works.

    I just want to now what is the flashing light means light? Why it does not work with the new cable?

    Thanks in advance! Sorry for my bad English...


    It is possible that this is a problem with the kit. I would recommend to download and install the latest BIOS update for your laptop, using the download at the following link:

    If it still doesn't work after that, I would recommend to suppress the kit for a replacement or to try another.

  • Re: Satellite A105 - seeing of power started flashing orange/battery not charging

    I have a satellite A105-4054, which gave excellent service. Yesterday, the orange started power light flashing and ceased to charge the battery. I had a second freshly charged battery, that I used instead and the power led still flashes in orange.

    I checked the Original Toshiba charger that came with the device, with a voltmeter and it shows 15 volts, which is correct. The laptop starts normally with a freshly charged battery, but it does not load when it is plugged and the power light flashes orange constantly. If I remove the battery and leave the laptop plugged in, continually amber power light flashes and nothing happens (no voltage). I'd be happy to run just the laptop on AC, but it is not possible now

    The toshiba power utility system icon, when the laptop is started on the new battery, flushing back and forth between the load and the battery, and the battery does not seem to charge. Previously, the power utility would show current alternative continuously when the unit is connected and the power light stay blue.

    I love the laptop, because he rendered services superb and would like to keep. All reasonable solutions, please?

    Thanks guys (and girls)!

    On this virtual path, no one can say with certainty what the problem, but after reading your detailed ad, I think there is problem with electronic power supply on the motherboard. Technicians with tools only special diagnostic can say with certainty what the problem is here.

    In my opinion there is not a lot you can do about it, and in this case, entire motherboard must be exchanged. If you want to contact the nearest authorized maintainer, explain the situation and I hope that they can tell you more.

  • Qosmio F20 won't start - power light flashes orange

    My Qosmio F20-149 crashed yesterday and I was not able to get it working again. When I try to turn it on, the power light flashes on and outside (on: 1 sec, off: 1 sec) and the cooler fan operates at full power. When I press a key, there is a genre or a sound error. otherwise no reaction of the laptop; even the CD player does not open.

    I did no RAM-implementation to date, and I use the original power supply Toshiba. I tried from the laptop using only the battery, only power and on both. No change in the reaction. I tried all possible combinations (with a free one, both... etc) of my two cards, RAM (512 + 512) and still no use.

    I am really puzzled.

    If I understand you just your laptop sends a blink code. Copy the following code appears so laptop has detected a problem with the electronic power supply.
    In this case, there is nothing that you can do and the laptop must be sent to the service provider allowed the closest.

    They have manuals containing instructions and the exact description of the code how do I solve this problem.
    Sorry, buddy, but I do not think that anyone here can offer an accurate diagnosis for that matter.
