Sounds like power supply has went out. Do you have another power supply that you can use to test?

Hi k_tec12,

Solid Amber Power light indicates that it is a system fault error condition, including the power supply. Only the +5VSB rail on the power supply is working correctly as indicated by chrisd87. Please ensure that, all power cables are securely connected to the system board before checking with a known good power supply.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajath N
