Diagnostic Indicators
Indicator Example Description
Power Button LED SLN290521_en_US__11389805165903.Power LED off Off-system is off or unplugged
SLN290521_en_US__21389805201607.PowerLEDBlinkAmber Blinking amber light-initial state of LED at power up; indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
If the Hard Drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced. If the Hard Drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed. Look at the diagnostic LEDs for further information.
SLN290521_en_US__31389805225482.Power LED solid amber Solid amber light-second state of the LED at power up. Indicates the POWER_GOOD signal is active and it is probable that the power supply is fine. Look at the diagnostic LEDs for further information.
SLN290521_en_US__41395947830574.Precision T5500 PowerLEDBlinkGreen Blinking green light - system is in a low power state, either S1 or S3. Look at the diagnostic LEDs to determine which state the system is in.
SLN290521_en_US__51395947882263.Precision T5500 PowerLEDGreen Solid green light - the normal power state of a functioning machine. The BIOS will turn the LED to this state to indicate it has started fetching opcodes.
Diagnostic lights SLN290521_en_US__61389805799337.Precision T7610 diagnostic LED off Off - computer is off or has completed POST
SLN290521_en_US__71389806126484.Precision T7610 diagnostic LED 13 blinking Green/blinking light - see the service manual for specific diagnostic codes
