Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I saw your response to another question so I thought you might know. I recently had no power on my eMachine T2893. I discovered from the net that they have a notorious problem with supply, and I inspected mine and found a tiny capacitor rolling around inside the supply with brown burn residue where it should have been plugged. I bought and installed a suitable replacement but when troubleshooting before; I removed the connector for the on/off switch and LED lights for the power and HD. The new supply shows a green light on the motherboard but there is no response when I press the on/off switch. I'm thinking that I did not reconnect the the three connectors properly and before searching for a schematic or using a voltmeter I thought you might know. The mobo has a "front panel series of 7 pins. Logic dictates that one rail is hot and the other is common, but that is not the way I remember they were configured when I pulled them. Any help?
Yes that is true if you look at your wires ahnd you will see that one says hdd and one says spkr and so on now look closley at the board and you will see the same thing on the moboard if you are not abloe to read it you should be able to go to the manufacture of the board and there is a section for online manuals that u can download ok i hope this helps out a little bit please keep me posted ok this i can help you out morte if you need ok best reggards mike
