My emachines t6412 is now having a problem. Its on off botton is flashing but wont turn on (boot up). Last night i was inside the pc lookin at a few wires. ALl i did was bump something and it shut the pc dwn ( almost like i unplugged it while it was running) I hit on again and it booting up.. I then moved a set of wires a lil to see something and it shut off again.. This time it wont allow me to boot up. I tried everything . unplug it , hold down on button for 10 sec. Nothing happens except the blue on off button is flashing.. Evern more weird it still flashes when unplugged. Im guessing it needs to b reset ??? I hope i didnt do anything.. Anyone have a clue what the flashing lights means or how to get it going again. I cant believe barely touching sum wore could have done this PLease help

Does anyone know the solution for the flashing issue on T6412....having the same issue and wondering if it is th epower supply...if so where can one buy as it seems different for the emachine? thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

First, here is the support web page for your computer.


What can I do if my computer does not power on?


It sounds to me like you may have had a bad connection, and your messing with the wires corrected this momentarily and caused the system to shut down in the process.

Now this can zap a component on the motherboard causing permanent system failure, but lets hope this is not the case.

What could be happening here is you either have a faulty solder connection on the motherboard, or a bad connector on a power wire.

First thing I would do is examine all the connections with the power off, make sure you ground yourself to the computer's metal case before touching anything inside the computer. Examine for the possibility that a wire is loose in its connector or a socket is loose on the motherboard, hard drive or optical drive.

Power up the computer once you are sure everything is Okay.


How to perform a power reset:

1.Remove the motherboard battery and unplug the AC adapter from the computer.
2.Press and hold down the power button on the computer down for 30 seconds and then release the button.
3.Plug in the AC adapter again, reinsert the battery, and power on the computer.

Please keep us updated on what you find.
