Re: Dell power Supply has won't work

Hi, all power supply's have a fuse in them, remove the power supply, open it up and study the printed circut board, you will see either a white ceramic or glass fuse attached to it. Replace this and reasemble it then re-install it into your computer and then test it. If you still have no power then you will have to replace the unit as the costs of repair are far greater than a new one. Goodluck, mistyman

My Power Suplly makes a high pitch noise and the

The problem lies in the reduction of operational frequency. It is mainly caused during the loose of ferrite cores or failure of HV diodes across the primary coil.
1) Check the looseness of ferritte cores parts loose or fixed properly ?
2) If OK Just check the components parallel to the high voltage side of the big transformer.
3) Check low voltage schottky rectifier diodes. One must be shorted. Just remove and here the sound. If it disappears, it must be faulty. During this test, the output voltages may increase to three times also. So, to safeguard, disconnect the filter capacitors.
Solution :
1) If any of the core becomes loose, just join it properly with epoxy or glue.
2 & 3) If any device fault occurs, just replace it in case of schottky rectifier diodes better replace with higher capacity. Capacity with numbers are given below :
1N5822 => 3 A
F12C20=> 6A per channel total 12A
MBR 20150 => 10A per channel.
MBR 3035WT => 15A per channel

A PS-5022-2DF Power Supply

When a power supply goes bad they are generally not worth repairing given the low replacement costs these days.
I have bought a lot of replacement Dell power supplies from this place over the years.
Remember a lot of Dell power supplies and motherboards are proprietary so you cannot use generic parts.

All you have to do is connect the green wire (normally thinner than the rest of the cables) to any black wire. This can be done easily with a short piece of wire. If the power supply doesn?t immediately turn on (within 2 seconds) remove the wire, you may have connected it to the wrong wires, although most power supplies won?t allow a short to damage the unit. Once on, the power supply isn?t loaded so the voltages won?t be as stable as if they were used in a full PC, however it?ll be sufficient for most uses. It?s not a good idea to leave a power supply on in this fashion for a long period of time too."
