Check your power supply. Open it up and you will see that a capacitor has blown in the power supply box. Once you know for sure this is the problem, you can resolder a new one in or replace the whole power supply or bring it to a rapair shop. Good luck!

My emachine desktop tower will not power on


the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you

Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug


Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

Emachine won't start .power is on, fan is on, doesn't boot up


I love this one. I've actually done this many times before and have been successful.

1. Turn the computer off and unplug the power cord from the back of the tower.

2. Press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds while the computer2_bing.gif is unplugged (this drains the remaining power from the capacitors on the motherboard2_bing.gif).

3. Plug the computer back in and turn it on.

If that does not work, follow steps 1 and 2 again, but this time:

3. Open the computer while it is unplugged and unplug the power supply from the motherboard then hold down the power button again for 3 seconds. (You may also want to take the RAM out and put in back in)

4. Plug everything back in and turn the computer on.

I cannot boot up the computer. When I push the front power button, nothing happens. When I flip the switch on the back, or unplug it for 30 secs and plug it back in, the fan starts up and a yellow light...


I had this happen to my emachines T1842 about a year ago. I replaced the power supply and it worked fine. It was about 25 bucks but fixed my problem. Make sure the red switch on the back hasnt been messed with. it should be on 115. If you have moved it, it may have blown a fuse inside the power supply.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Emachine tower unresponsive


Unplug the Monitor, and attempt to reconnect a seperate monitor to test. If that monitor works properly, then the problem is your regular monitor. If you do not have another monitor, Try unplugging the power from the wall jack to the tower. Then plug into another port, the reason the computer doesn't turn on is because the power outlet may be running but at a lower voltage then what is required for the computer to run at its full potential. If theese both fail, Try opening your computer and check if anything is blown out.

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.
