The light that used to stay on all the time is most likly the Power light(LED) The light that used to flash when you were using the computer is the  HddLED(Hard disk drive Light Emitting Diode) If you mixed them up it wil likly only light the wrong light.    I hope this helps.  If you wish to be sure you may be able to download the owners manual  the manufacture ?

(Next to the red Adobe PDF icon)

There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

For an example;
The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.
The Front Panel header is Orange in color. (Page 20)

Two rows of contact pins.
5 pins across the Top row.
4 pins across the Bottom row.

The Top row is numbered ODD.
The Bottom row is numbered EVEN.

Starting on the RIGHT side going across to the Left; Top row,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Starting on the RIGHT side going across to the Left; Bottom row,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the Harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected.
Reserved for factory use. Probably a 5 Volt test point.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for a Power On LED light.
These two pins are used for a Single color, Power On LED light.
Two wire LED light.

Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.
There is ALSO a jumper used for this LED light. More on it at the end.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for a Power On switch.

To the Right of the Orange Front Panel header, (F_PNL), is the PW_LED header.
[Page 20 to right of Front Panel header. -> PW_LED
(Power LED, 2/3 Pins) ]

3-pin Black header. Sits Vertically.
(The Orange - Front Panel header, sits Horizontally)

This is used for a 3-wire Power On LED light.
Used for a Dual Color - Power On LED light.

One example is if the computer has Turbo Mode, and Normal Mode.
Green color usually for the Turbo Mode, Yellow color of the LED for the Normal Mode.

Starting from the BOTTOM going UP;
Pins 1, 2, and 3. (3 at the Top)

A) Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. [Signal]
B) Pins 2 and 3 are for the Ground wires.

How To Remove Front Panel For t5048 Emachines Tower


The eMachines T5048 Desktop PC, uses the NexGen 2 computer case.
(Also uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard)

1) http://www.hypermicro.com/mmhypermicrocom/images/CSEC004.JPG

The front panel is the Front Bezel.
It is removed by grasping the right side of it, and pulling out, G-E-N-T-L-Y

There Power On switch wires, Power On LED wires, USB front panel wires, Card Reader wires, etc., are still attached.

http://downloads.emachines.com/userguides/DesktopPC_UserGuide_en.pdf

(Page 47 - Removing the Front Bezel )

{ Note*
Usually there are plastic tabs formed out of the Front Panel, and they snap into slots in the metal computer case frame.

Usually 3 per side. They are flat, and have a hooked end.
They are pressed to the outside, or inside of the case, to release the hooked end away from the side of the slot.

LOOK at the tab. Look at the hooked end. SEE which direction THAT flat tab should be eased over to, in order to bring the hooked end away from the side of the slotted hole.

When the hooked end is in the middle of the slotted hole, the flat tab can then be eased OUT of the slotted hole.

DO NOT assume all tabs go in the same direction }

[ The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, (Except for the USB and Card Reader), is the Front Panel header.

This link shows you the Front Panel header pinout,

I need to know the correct placement for the power on leads to the motherboard on the emachine c2782 Thank you. policetac@yahoo.com


Use a magnifying glass to read the mobo print by the wire connectors. You should be able to spot something.
The on/off (power) button will go to the connector marked PWR or PW_SW or similar.
The LEDS will be (you should have 2 at least), one going to power led which should be named something like POWER, PWR_LED or PW_LED. And the other should be something like HD_LED or similar.
You might have to follow the wire from the case's front bezel if it's purpose isn't marked on it's connector, to figure which LED is hard drive and power.
You might have a reset switch on that case, and that would go to RES_SW or RESET or similar. LED's will not work if attached backwards. You need to connect the positive lead from the case to the positive pin on the motherboard, and the same with the negative. Unfortunately, the case connector almost never has the positive and negative labeled. The +/- is also hard to spot on the mobo. Fortunately, attaching them backwards will usually not cause any damage; the LED just won't work.
The LED will usually have the colored wires (blue, green, yellow, red, orange) as the positive, and a 2nd black or white wire which will be the negative. NOT always though. The reset switch has no polarity, so that won't matter which way it's connected. After you get it right, make a map of the pin connections and sock it away in case you need to remove/replace the mobo again in the future. I got a map of each of my computers, as they are all different (mobo's), though the cases are the same brand.

My power led connector (green,white) power sw connector (black,white) got out of place and i dont where they go


The eMachines T3302 desktop computer, uses an FIC K8M-800M motherboard.
(First international Computer, Inc.)

Where those wires go on the motherboard, is termed a Front panel header.

The Front Panel is the plastic front bezel of your computer.
(Where the Power On button is, Power On LED light, and so on)

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is at the bottom right corner, and over to the left.

Look at the jumper block in the bottom right corner. Right in the corner.
This is the LED type selector, jumper block.
Has 6 pins.
3 across the Top, 3 across the Bottom.

(This jumper block is to set whether you are using a Power On LED light, that has Dual Colors, or a Single color.
The default setting of the jumper on the block, is set to use a Dual Color LED light, for the Power On LED)

Move to the left of this jumper block. The Front Panel header is to the left of this jumper block.

(FIC terms it a Front Panel Block Connector)

It should be White in color.
Is right against the bottom edge of the motherboard. (Parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard)

Has two rows of pins sticking up.
5 across the Top.
4 across the Bottom.

The pins are numbered from the Right, going towards the Left.

(From the Power On LED jumper block, towards the Front Panel header)

On the Top row going from Right, towards the Left,
Pins 1 ,3, 5, 7, and 9.

On the Bottom row going from the Right, towards the Left,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Green)

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Power On switch.
Pin 5 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
(Black)

[Although it really doesn't matter which way the wires go. It's a SWITCH]

C) Pins 2 and 4 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire ( + )

D) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Reset switch.
(IF used)

If any of your LED lights are dim, after attaching the Positive wire for each LED, it's because the Positive wire is on the wrong pin.
Switch the wires around

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.
