    Huh. I don't see options in the Tools Menu, or the Utilities Menu, for the Asus P6TD Deluxe motherboard, for electronic component failure at board level diagnostics. P0207 looks like a Code Reader code for an automobile, to me.

  • Ronald West Oct 31, 2012

    Hello Joe, its a component failure not a failure alert like the CPU temp or fan speed; take the lid off and look at the mother board near the first DDR3 RAM socket.

    Sure it's not, "P0207 Injector Circuit Malfunction - Cylinder 7?" OH I'M JUST KIDDING! (Just take the lid off he, let me just pull one out! wonder I couldn't sit down right!) Yes. I see four of them (Black- rectangular ) at the bottom of the Ram Memory slots. (Image Gallery) Fusible resistor huh? Hmmm. I would think circuit breaker, but what do I know? Fusible link maybe? Why resistor? Okay. Have you opened it up yet, or is it a sealed with epoxy unit? See if you can find a manufacturer name, or code. P0207 may be a part number, but need more info. Why did it trip, or blow? Motherboard removed follow the Circuit Traces from it. Where do they go? No not kidding. I need to know what circuit they are in, or at least what electronic components are in that circuit. Need to know what function they are for.

What a minute hold the phone here!

Those are Ferrite Iron Choke Coils.

The 'little round cans' with the Red(?) edge on top, are Solid Polymer Capacitors, going around the processor socket.

Those are Ferrite Choke Coils going around the top side of the processor socket, immediately near the copper heat pipe fins. (Black/Square shaped top, rectangular shaped body)

The choke coils, and solid capacitors are part of the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit. These particular ones are for the processor.

The ones down by the Ram Memory slots are also in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

May be for the Ram Memory slots, but easily could also be for the expansion slots, too. (PCI-E x16, PCI-E x1, PCI, etc)

Here is more info on the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit,

So; Are you using the correct voltage ram memory, or have you installed 'performance stuff', and had to change voltage in BIOS Setup?

More importantly,
1) Are you running a graphics card?
2) More than one?
3) Have the proper amount of power, (Wattage and 12 Volt power rail/s)
4) Proper power cables from Power Supply?

4) Same thing for the motherboard;
IF, you are using a Processor that requires a LOT of Wattage, and you are using a graphics card; are you plugging in an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable into the motherboard?

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable connector, is called an EATX12V power cable connector by Asus. It's up at the top edge of the motherboard, above the top left corner of the processor socket.

Called EATX12V to keep people from confusing it with this power cable,

They are NOT the same;
EATX12V, or EPS +12 Volt power cable; has FOUR Yellow wires.
A Yellow insulated wire is a 12 Volt wire. Black wires are Ground wires.

An 8-pin PCI Express power cable has THREE Yellow wires, and FIVE Black wires.

BOTH, a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable; are power for the PROCESSOR.

Quad-Core, or a processor that uses this much power? 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

The MAXIMUM amount of Wattage a PCI-Express x16 slot can deliver is 75 Watts.
EACH 6-pin PCI Express power cable is capable of delivering 75 Watts.
Total of 150 Watts available for a graphics card.

An 8-pin PCI Express power cable is capable of delivering 150 Watts by itself.

Use the correct power cable IF needed for the graphics card, and the correct number of them if two are required.

Also; IF you did not have the correct power cables; AND used a power adapter cable, USE all of the required 4-pin Peripheral power cables needed, for that power adapter cable.

For example;
I have noted those who did not have TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, required for a 6-pin PCI Express adapter power cable.
Just one was available, and just one was used.........

This will result in;
1) PCI Express x16 slot contact pins - Burn
2) Gold plated contact pins on bottom of PCI-Express graphics card -Burn
3) 6-pin PCI Express power cable connection on graphics card - Burns
4) Contact pins in connector for 6-pin PCI Express power cable - Burns

That to me could also result in damage to electronic components, in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit;

Hence -> Ferrite Iron Choke Coils

Awaiting your response,

    Yes. Agree with your conclusion. Thank you for the rating! Don't know that I helped with that long 'dissertation'. Lol!

2001 Lincoln ls no crank no start no power to gages aint got ne lights that work when you turn key on nothing. Happens besides air bag light stays on

Not familiar with security systems, but could be a blown fusible link, or bad Ignition switch. Test for current to switch and if none (usually bid red wire) check for blown fusible links near starter big wire or battery +.

Radio stop working

Check for a blown fuse in the power circuit to the radio.
If your radio is an aftermarket one, it may have been improperly installed and powered from the cigarette lighter circuit. If so, check the fuse for the cigarette lighter circuit.

It may be that a "fusible link" was blown open when you attached a defective cell phone charger (what you call a "memory charger?) If so, you will have to get professional help in finding the location of the fusible link, often buried within the car's wiring harness.

My 94 lebarons windows, turn signals, and blower in the car won't work and the airbag light is on, all the fuses seem fine, i'm not sure what is causing it

sounds like you have a blown fusible link ,near battery/relay center.did this happen all at once?was the car jump started before this happened ,possibly crossed jumper cables which can burn out heavy fusible links(which feed your fuse box ++

Permobil c500 battery is dead. Chair will not charge or come on

Please remember even the very best rechargeable batteries (Nimh) will only last two years or so. The older type NICaD are far worse as they develop a memory effect so you need to run them down to nearly 5% of capacity and then fully recharge each time to prevent it. NEVER run rechargeable batteries completely to ZERO available charge. Some battery systems have a fusible link (sealed cylindrical or rectangular piece) built into the wiring or mounted inside a battery compartment. If the fusible link shorts (to protect electronics) then it will have to be replaced with one of a similar type. DO NOT DEFEAT THE FUSIBLE LINK. Sure the device will work, but if there is an electrical problem somewhere, it can fry a large part of it. Motorized chairs have a number of electrical components from adjustments to the joystick. The problem you describe seems to be a fusible link issue as a blown fusible link disconnects the circuit so none of the indicator lights will operate. Just check to see where the fusible link is installed. If it is integral to the battery compartment... just order a complete new one with a new battery; otherwise, a new battery alone will not address problem. Good Luck

Hooked up battery backwards car will trun over but seems like there is no spark

You may have blown out a fusible link. They can be cut out and replaced. Look around the battery for a wire whose insulation looks partially melted, or bubbled out a bit. Fusible links act like fuses and burn out before further damage in the wiring circuits occur. They are located near the battery because they distribute power to different circuits. Today, maxi-fuses in power distribution boxes or centers have largely done away with fusible links.

Need to find fuel relay fuse inline

The Auto Shutdown Relay (ASD) and the Fuel Pump Relay (FP) are powered by a fusible link in the wiring harness near the battery. Check For Battery Voltage at the ignition coil. (Dark Green and Orange wire) If there is power at this wire the fusible link is not blown.

No power to the radiator fans but the fan works when battery power is applied. Any idea what the problem is?

Could be a 'fusible link' near the starter. The fusible link will blow when overloaded like a fuse, but looks like a wire with a barrel of rubber around it. You can stretch the wire insulation on it when the fusible link is blown.

Also, check for power at the relay for the radiator fan.

Apparently, your fan motor works when power is applied directly.

Good luck on this repair.

I reversed the cables on battery and now the truck will not start

Look for a blown fuse,or fusible links to be burned out,these fusible links will bolt onto the starter with the positive cable,I do not know what year it is,but if it is a newer model,there is a fuse on the rail,on passengers side,near the radiator,it will be a flat fuse with two mounting bolts on each side of it,150 amp,or 200 amp,or lower,disconnect the battery before replacing it.
