  Tecra M9 not powering on, orange light blinking sequence  
 Date Written

Hi there,

I have a Tecra m9 laptop and when I try to power it on, it flashes with an orange light in this sequence:

6 short blinks, 1 long blink, 1 short blink, a gap, and then it repeats.

Does anyone know what the problem is?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The LED error codes should be identified in the Tecra M9 Service Manual (not the user manual).

Unfortunately, service manuals are reportedly not in obvious places like Toshiba's user support webpages (even if that would be providing superior service to the customer...Mr. Fukakushi Masahiko, Toshiba and Toshiba America CEO per 'Bloomberg Businessweek')

People report finding the Service Manual for other Tecra Mx laptops on the internet.

Until someone is able to give you a specific answer, you may find what you need by searching for the M9's. It's also possible that the service manual for a different model like M7 might also provide help in this regard.
