Power supply repair/service costs?

It looks as if i am going to need to bring my pc in for service. My pc will not boot and I believe it is the power supply after researching forums and manuals. This is something i will not do myself. Does anyone know the potential cost for this issue and once replaced will my computer be back to normal? Because my main concern is my data which I have not backed up probably ever.

When the psu is replaced providing there is no other problems it should be fine and a psu is not that expensive to replace but the engineer will charge you for it and his time however its fairly straight forward to do it yourself by just unscrewing the psu from the towers usually just four screws and remembering what cable goes where don't worry to much the cables are designed to only fit one port

Replace power supply motherboard


Replacing power supply mother board risks fire and shock. For the cost of a new supply, It is far better to replace it. I believe that is a standard power supply. You can buy them from Staples or Best Buy for cheap.. If you're not sure of the correct part, remove the old one (only 4 screws and a few cables) Make note of cable connection locations.. but really, it is pretty hard to put a plug into the wrong socket. Bring the old supply to your supplier of choice and match it with a new one.. Higher wattage is OK, lower is not
Good luck

My HP flat sreen Tv, Is doing some crazy stuff like i'm turning it on and it's swicthing off by it self. Somebody told me that the main power is getting bad. Do i need to bring this to repair shop?


Yes. If you are not performing the repairs yourself it is time to take it to the repair shop before the main board and power supply both need to be replaced. It might be too late and both of them may already need replacing. That is a costly repair and you might just want to purchase another tv, but let the repair service provider test the board and power supply and he'll let you know. That way you'll have peace of mind and know exactly what is going on.

PC would not power on? My PC wouldn't power on today, I checked all plugs on surge protector inc the fuses all seemed ok. I took all plugs out turned power off at socket for five minutes and put all plugs...


The tower has a self contained power supply module that is the problem, it must be replaced for a new one, you need to bring the tower to a computer repair store for service, because they have to install the correct power supply for your model.

My monitor (Mag Innovision 700p) is turning on and is showing whatever it would normally show for 2 seconds then short out to black. The green light is still on.


hello

i do believe the inverter part connected to the power supply may need attention (ie: it may require replacing the little PC board). it shorts out becuiase it has very little life remaining , perhaps one of the diodes is dead or a capacitor is hsorting out the current from it

have you brought it to a monitor repair person ? if it means that much to you, bring it in for testing

shoukd cost about $50-$75 to rapair

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything....


Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

My gateway 700 xl doesnt boot


Unplug the power from you 700xl and from you monitor. Try removing the cmos battery and reinstalling it. Then, plug everything back in and try restarting. If it continues to give you the yellow light, you may need to replace the CMOS battery, especially if it is more than two years old.

Another thing to consider is if your power supply is underpowered for the number of external devices you have plugged into it (i.e., cd, dvd, external hard drives, printers, pci cards, etc). Gateway installed very low powered power supplies in their 700xl desktop computers. Usually only around 250 watts maximum.

If you are replacing the power supply with another 250 watt maximum power supply, and you have a lot of external devices plugged in, you may need at least a 350 watt power supply....if your CMOS battery is not the problem.

No power after plugging in the external power adapter


I believe sometime when you insert the AC Adaptor while the power switch still on in CAM mode or VTR mode the sparking cause the micro fuse protection blew up it require a qualifier and trained from Sony to repair it

I sugges to bring it to Sony for repair it sometime they can not repair at component level they replace a complet PCB and it need the computer to setup and adjust and highly cost
I hope that give you some ideas
