    Got a Tecra M1 refusing to power up since few days.

    The M1 has 3 led to indicate: (a) the AC power is connected (b) the power is on (c) the battery is available / charging.
    Each of these can be green or amber.


    The symptoms are the following:
    - with AC adapter and batteries plugged, (a) and (c) are green
    - when powering the laptop, the leb (b) is turing green for a fraction of a second; then start blinking amber with more or less 1 second frequency. Got a intermediate beep on speaker with the same frequency.
    - display is bank. Not even bios is displayed.

    I tried already the following:
    1) remove AC and battery, wait a while, plug both and restart. Same issue
    2) remove battery, boot on AC. Same issue.
    3) remove AC, boot on battery. Same issue.

    Any idea ?
    Does anyone know the meaning of having this "power-o" led blinking amber.
    Thanks.

    Hi buddy,

    > remove AC and battery, wait a while, plug both and restart. Same issue
    Good job because this was described [HERE|http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=21]

    Unfortunatley thatís everything what you can do if your notebook doesnít start. At the moment it looks like a serious hardware malfunction and the mainboard or CPU could be affected.

    I would recommend contacting an authorized service provider in your country. The guys can make an exact diagnostic and tell you how much a repair would cost.

    Good luck! :)

    Hi awalrant,

    Everything what you have done was very good and I think you have tried everything. There is nothing what you can do more because this seems to be a serious hardware problem.

    Please get in contact with an authorized service provider in your country and ask the guys for help. Iím sure they can help you to get rid of this and you can find a list of all service points here:
