Dell Inspiron 1570 Power on problems.
Posted on 2013-01-28
Hope there is a Dell expert out there as I am having issues getting this Dell Inspiron 1570 up and running.
The problem is when you attempt to power on you get a brief flash of the power light (blue) followed by 8 orange flashes. Doesn't attempt to power on no noises from fan just sits there flashing orange. According to most forums the problem is to do with charging or battery. I have so far replaced the battery with a genuine one and also changed the charger for a genuine one. Still getting the same issue. Just in case the power socket was faulty I changed that to, still giving the same symptoms. It has now become a damage limitation exercise and as a final resort ordered and replaced the system board but again no result, getting exactly the same flashing light sequence. I've tried disconnecting the connector to the screen in case that was causing the problem but still not attempting to power up any help would be appreciated.
