Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Tandy 2810HD tries to power up but immediately shuts down. The test lights for Caps Lock, Num Lock, etc. flash briefly then go dark with no further response.

Answers :

I do not have a solution to this, but I am about to tackle this exact problem. I will post whatever USEFUL result I come up with.
I'm surprised that any of these are still working. This was made in the early 90's. I worked on these alot during those days but I've since sold off my old database of repairs. I would guess this is some sort of electronic problem in the power or power regulation circuit. I think you'll be hard pressed to find a repairman old enough to help you.
