Question about HEC Group ACE 580UB 580-Watt Power Supply

1 Answer

Orange connectors (3.3v) brown

I've just removed my power supply (ACE 580 UB) from my motherboard as I have a brand new motherboard. Problem is I've notice the orange wire connections (Pin 1,2 & 11 - I think) look blown (burnt). Would it be safe to use this same power unit on a new motherboard ? Itwas working last time I tried it

Thats probably dust and static dirt, if the power supply worked fine before then there should be no problem providing that the pin arrangement is the same, test it on you old mobo to check it!!!!

2005 Chevy Colorado LS 5.3L Blower motor iOS not working. Replaced the resistor because that was burnt out but it didn’t fix the issue. Figured out the connector only gets power at the brown wire and...

The top wire at blower motor is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. So brown wire is voltage, orange wire is ground. So, the resistors, havc control, on and off and speeds are controlled on the ground circuit. Generally if ground is good, no voltage or very little on the ground circuit, because the component is using the voltage. The wire connector for your blower motor is it any good? You could remove blower motor, use jumper wires off battery for voltage and ground, the blower motor should run up a storm. It wouldn't hurt to use inline fuse, just incase.
I looked at info for 3.5L, my info didn't show 5.3L?

Philips (37PFLG777K/12) LED TV do not turn and do not show the Standby LED. 3,3V Standby can not be meassure.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Brand new motherboard and my dell xps 7100 still has orange light

A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Desperate to get my Dead Desktop going again................

I always start with the power supply. Your power supply may not be producing all the power your motherboard is requesting, even though the light on the back is on. If you dont have a power supply tester, then you can try removing your power supply and trying a known working supply in it, making sure you have the right connectors on it for your motherboard..

I looked at a pic of your motherboard Asus A8n-vm and I dont see an orange (or any) button to push. Was that to reset your bios? If so, unplug the system from the wall, and carefully remove the battery from the motherboard. While it is out, push the power button on the front of the computer a few times. The computer wont start up, as you have it unplugged, its just to drain the motherboard of power to reset the bios. Then reinstall the battery, making sure it goes in the same as it came out (- is usually down and + is up). This should reset the bios info to the factory settings.But I still think it is a faulty power supply.

I removed the power supply to install motherboard and did not pay attention to the 3 wires attached to the case. what is the order of the wires? They are green/yellow, blue and brown.

All the wires from the power supply are power connectors, depending upon the motherboard not all power connectors from the power supply maybe required. If there are no matching sockets on the motherboard, then that power connector is not required.
