Problems with Intellistation 6223 Power Supply?

Our Intellistation 6223-6GU workstation, purchased 4 years ago has been powered up for first time, and immediately showed power supply problems, (I believe it has 530 watt AC 120/230 volt power supply). I see from your web pages that this is a continuing problem with Z-Pros. Any source to replace or fix?

As this is the first time powering up, check the 115/230V switch on the back of the machine to ensure it is set properly. Then if you're ok going inside the PC follow each cable to it's connector and make sure all are connected firmly then try to start the pc again. If this doesn't work it's likely a dud.

These power supplies are cut to a funny shape so you do have to replace them via IBM. You can take it to any IBM service center or got to:

http://www-304.ibm.com/shop/americas/content/home/store_IBMPublicUSA/en_US/parts/parts_main.html

check for part exchange discounts and then submit, on the next page it will ask for the IBM part # which will be on a sticker on the power supply. The part is fairly easy to swap out if you're at all handy with a screw driver. If you're not, call the 800 number on the above page and ask them for the closest service center.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

My HP D530C does not power on. The power LED flashes 4 times. What is the fault? Pls let me know asap. Thanks.


HP xw6200 Workstation - Diagnostic LED Code: Four Flashes ISSUE: When the workstation is powered on, the front LED might flash red four times, once per second, followed by a two second pause. SOLUTION: The front LED flashing four times is a sign of a power failure. To fix this issue, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the access panel, and check to see if the four-wire power supply cable is properly connected to the system board.
  2. There may be a faulty device. Locate it by removing all devices and then reinstalling them one at a time until the workstation fails. Replace the device causing the failure. Continue adding devices to ensure all are functioning properly.
  3. Verify the power supply functionality, as follows:
    1. Disconnect AC power.
    2. Remove all internal power supply cables from the system board.
    3. Plug in AC power.
      • If the power supply fan spins, and the BIST LED illuminates, then the power supply is good. Replace the system board.
      • If the power supply fan does not spin, or the BIST LED does not illuminate, replace the power supply.

With a IBM 6223 can I mix sata and scsi drives in the same machine?


Yes. you can use any mixture of different interfaces a PC. As long as you have the appropriate controller interface to plug the drive into, and your power supply is big enough to support the drive(s) you're using, there should not be a problem.

The only caveat is that if you want to boot from a drive type that is not part of the PC bios, this may not work.

Such as if the bios is so old that it only has IDE and you plug in a SATA or SCSI adapter, it may take some fiddling to make it boot properly. Many interface adapters have their own bios, and sometimes things are not as compatible as they should be.
