Connection question This psu has an extra connection I've not seen before. There is a blue and black pair terminating in a three pin socket (one pin unused). Can anybody tell me it's function and where to connect it ?

    Thanks for the speedy response RSB, the connector is identical to a motherboard fan connection , but I don't see this as being a supply to the psu's internal fan as surely that would be powered internally. My next thought was that it could be the psu fans speed indication for the motherboards BIOS  , but that would only have one cable not two , so I'm stumped ! I won't risk connecting it to the MB until I know as I don't want to blow it . Any other ideas ?


  • Vic Edwards Mar 11, 2009

    Many thanks 996 . Any idea why there's two cables. I'm still a bit worried.


  • Vic Edwards Mar 11, 2009

    That's great 996 , many thanks I'll try it tomorrow !

    Hard to say without actually seeing the connector, but it sounds like it may be a connector for an additional case fan.

    Hope this helps.

It is for the Fan RPM Monitor according to Antec.Check your motherboard for a psu fan connection. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Turn a delta 400lb


I don't think this model has any on/off switch on the side of the case.
Ensure that the PSU is setup for the correct a.c. input voltage.
I assume that it is the same model as here
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-SONY-DELTA-DPS-400LB-A-364-7W-Power-Supply-1-468-851-21-/221416097579?pt=PCA_UPS&hash=item338d6d872b
with a 20 pin mainboard connector.
Working from this reference
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATX_PSU#Power_supply
the PSU (removed from computer) may be turned on by connecting the terminal from which the green wire emerges to any of the terminals from which black wires emerges, for example pin 16 to pin 15 in the diagram (a straightened out paper clip is often used for this purpose)
Alternatively, it easier to use a psu tester
When connected in your computer find the connector which goes to the front panel on/off button. If if it's connected simply press the on button on your computer. If its not, establish from the m/b manual which are the pins to the on/off switch and connect them together for a moment. The psu should come on.

You have to "short" two of the sockets.
Get the CORRECT two, or else you could kill yourself, or "fry" the power-supply.
Details: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/insidethepc/a/atx-pinout-24-pin-12v-psu.htm about the "pin-out" arrangement.

It would be easier/safer to connect the sockets to a motherboard, and connect a power-switch to the ON/OFF pins on the motherboard, and then use that power-switch.

My 873 n will not turn on


if you are refering to a computer

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer and before you touch anything be sure to wear an earth strap hope this helps

Hi guys, i have a power supply HP-Compaq-226519-001 bought from ebay. the seller said it is a working pull-out and i was able to locate the AC input terminals/pins as well as the DC output terminals but...


Go to this link. Click HERE. Unplug from the motherboard FIRST. (all other leads too) You can test by using a paper clip to short pin 14 (green) to 13,15,16, or 17. This will power on a working power supply.

If you know the receptacles that you have plugged the computer into, indeed have power, I would suggest you diagnose the Power On switch, and the Power Supply.

See of the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

A jumper wire is used on the main ATX power cable.

1) If the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
2) If the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

Your problem is posted in the eMachines Bestec ATX-300-12E power supply section.
Going with that we are discussing a Bestec ATX 300 watt power supply, the main ATX power cable is a 20-pin ATX main power cable.

Typical pinout of a 20-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Note the Green wire in the BACK of the connector, in the photo to the far right.
This is the Soft Power On wire, or also abbreviated as the PS_ON wire.

Note the Black wires. ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

With the 20-pin ATX power cable plugged into the motherboard, as shown in the photo, a jumper wire is touched to the Green wire, and to ANY Black wire.
The computer (Power Supply) is also plugged into power.

Generally a paper clip is used for the jumper wire.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U shape.
Black plastic electrical tape is then wound around the middle of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

The 'legs' of the paper clip, are then inserted down into the socket holes, in the back of the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Down into a socket hole with the Green wire, and also into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.
The 'leg' of the paper clip goes down into the socket hole, RIGHT NEXT to the existing wire.

At the end of every wire in the 20-pin ATX main power cable, is a metal terminal end.
The metal terminal end is pretty far down in the socket.
You must ensure that the metal end of the paper clip, touches the metal terminal.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
There may be a small spark as you make the connection.

Warning you in advance.
You can see the voltage is VERY low, however.

I would like you to perform this test, then post back in a Comment as to your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

The Power supply willhave to pin #16 connected to pin #15 for an ATX power connector. It would bebest to purchase a Power Supply Tester for about $20.00, which will test allvoltages with a load and give you a go or no go signal. If you want to use ameter to check voltages, here is a link for the pin outs.

I have a mother board with 4+4 pin atx connection but the additio


The extra 4-pin connector should slide into the side of the larger connector. If the leads are the following: black/yellow/yellow/black, then this connector goes on a different location (usually close to the CPU/heatsink assy). Sometimes the PSU will not come equipped with the aux 4-pin that slides in next to the main connector... The computer generally WILL work without this connector, provided the aformentioned connector is connected in the aforementioned slot.
