Question about Work Station 250W ATX POWER SUPPLY (= FSP-235-60GI) (FSP25060GI) Power Supply

Packard bell imedia 1308 power supply unit

I'm having trouble sourcing a psu for my Packard Bell Imedia 1308. The original unit ( FSP250-60GEN ) appears to have been superceded by other models. There seems to have been a problem with it being underpowered.The other FSP models on offer don't seem compatible i.e. physical size, screw fixing positions, no connector on back opposite power connector ( the FSP250-60GEN has a small mauve female connector point - for audio I think? )

I'd be most grateful if you could suggest some suitable alternatives.

    My Imedia 8303 started to smell funny today, I opened it and some part inside the FSP250-60GEN where very hot and partly damaged.
    My PSU has to be replaced, if I turn it on again I think it will start to burn.

Do you have the correct/original power supply, and it is having problems of some sort? If so, you might be able to do some repairs. A common problem is often one or more of the electrolytic capacitors is bad. Take the cover off, and look for bulged capacitors (top of the capacitor pushed up & out). If you find one or more of these, replacement may return the p/s to working order.

Please note in ATX power supplies, you have a standby and full power or main section. The standby portion powers just a small section of the motherboard to sense when the power button is pushed, and activate the main full power section. Obviously, the main section powers the full motherboard, drives, fans, etc.

I've seen several units where the standby section has one or more bad capacitors which will produce either a dead or slow to turn on computer.

Use a voltmeter and monitor the voltages. There are sites on the 'net with pinouts

Check here for further instructions

As regards replacement capacitors: I use mostly the Panasonic FC series available from Digi-Key Electronics. Mouser Electronics also has suitable units. You want capacitors designed for switching power supplies.

Hope this helps you out.

I took my Packard Bell effort into PC World last week when my PSU blew, and they fixed it in an hour by replacing it with a similar PSU. When I got it home and started the PC up I noticed the new PSU did not have the purple DC female connector (which will power your speaker system), they also did not reconnect another soft touch keypad on my tower - presumably as the new PSU didn't have the leads off to connect to it. So back to PC World to **** them this weekend. Deano
