    Same problem. I tested the old power supply and no response. The old supply does not light the green light whereas the new one does. Yet machine will not turn on. repair person stated that often with an e machine, both the power supply and the motherboard go. I'm not sure it is worth replacing the motherboard on this old of a machine. fremontdave@comcast.net

Have you try to test your power supply if it actually works? try 2 remove it from your pc plug the power chord on it and short the GREEN and BLACK wires using a pin or any conductor u can use. see if it turn on lights and fan turns on when you do that.

T2862 wont work -no power goes to it.


emachine?
is it new?
if its not, then check the power supply, there should be a green light on the back of the unit. if this is yellow or not lit at all then the problem is your PSU

crack the case and make sure the PSU cables are connected properly
also while your in there check for swollen capacitors or dust

When i turn the power on the green power supply light goes out and doesnt turn onand the computer wont turn on


Follow these:
  1. Unplug the computer.
  2. Disconnect the power supply from the motherboard and all other accessories.
  3. Replug the power supply.
  4. Connect the green wire (PSON) of the power supply by way of a jumper wire to any black wire (ground).
  5. The power supply should turn on with its fan. If not, it is defective and should be replaced.
  6. Check the ATX12V connector of your motherboard. It is were you removed the 4-wire, 2 yellow and 2 black, connector of the power supply. Check the continuity of the yellow wires to the black ones. It should be open, otherwise it is shorted and your processor is defective and should be replaced.

Emachine won't turn on


With an Emachine it can be the power supply or the motherboard.

My guess it is the capacitors on the motherboard. Check to see if the round cylinders on the motherboard are bulging on the ends, and possibly rusty looking. Esp around the Main CPU/Fan.

They are notorious for bad capacitors.

If the caps look good, it still could be the motherboard, or maybe the power supply. Switcing out the power supply is pretty easy.

Unplug
disconnect all the power connectors
unscrew the 4 screws on the back of the computer
remove and replace the power supply.
Make sure you get a power supply with as much power, or more is much better. 350 watt or higher.

Can not find heat sink switches on motherboard emachine t2862


Heat sink switches? I have to assume that you're talking about a dead mother board but the fans and the LED on the mother board are OK? This is a classic eMachines problem. Their power supplies glitch and take out the mother board sometimes the power supply goes bad too.

E-machine will not power up even after replacing the power supply


If power does not come to hard disk, cd/dvd etc. then replace the mother board. And if you can put on the cpu and there is no display, then replace the RAM module.

EMachine T2824 does not turn on. Power cord/power supply seems O.K.


There are just too many eMachine models to be familiar with every one, however, as a preliminary inspection, remove the side panel, and turn the computer on to see if you see a green "Health" light. This will give you an initial clue as to how to pursue the problem. eMachines have historically had power supply problems. If you do not see a green health light on the motherboard, then your power supply is defective. A power supply supplies various voltages + - 5V, + - 12V ,etc. A power supply can be easily tested by a local shop with the proper test equipment. You might start there if you are a DIY! Short of that, you can purchase a power supply for under $65.00.

E machine no power


Make sure the RAM is seated, the CPU, any video card and the Power supply is properly connected.

If you power it on, still get no POST (beep at startup from the PC speakers) its time to replace the motherboard.
