Dead in the water?

Power supplies, depending on your demand, can cost you as little as 35 bucks. However, eMachines, power supply physical design is a bit different than most. Here is how you can bench test your supply to rule out any other problems. Unplug your machine. Make a simple diagram of what cables from the supply goes to what, including the ones that go to the motherboard. Next, Disconnect all of that. On the large cable that connected to the motherboard and locate the green wire. Now find, somewhere other than inside your pc. A small piece of wire (with both ends stripped of insulation) to use as a jumper. Stick this wire in the hole where the green wire ports to and the other end to any black wire port. Plug your supply back into the wall. If the PS is good it will fire right up. If not, you need to replace it.

Hope this helps!

My t3065 e machine was powered down manually 1 week ago when I got back to it to turn it on nothing happens, the power cord and wall plug are fine

Perhaps during the interlude that the eMachines wasn't being used, there was a power outage, or lightning struck nearby.

The first hardware component that I would check, would be the Power On switch, and Power Supply.

Bypass the Power On switch to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If bypassing turns the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power On switch.

If bypassing does Not turn the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power Supply.

Inside the plastic Power On button, is a Power On switch.
It is a Momentary Contact Switch.

Below is one example of a Power On switch, I have found to fit many computers.

Bypassing is done with a jumper wire, inserted into the back of the 20/24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

The jumper wire Briefly, touches the Soft Power On wire (Green) terminal down in the connector, and ANY Ground terminal. (Black)

I listed 20/24-pin above, because I don't know if the T3065 uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

Below is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's corresponding connector,

The photo all the way to the Right, shows the back of the connector.
It is plugged into the motherboard.

The Front of the connector is plugged into the female socket on the motherboard.
The Back of the connector is shown, and this is the area the power wires go down into.

Here you can see the green Soft Power On wire.
ANY of those Black wires are Ground wires.

I have Not detailed this procedure yet.

Do Not attempt it until I do.

I want to know first, if you are interested in doing the procedure, and will also outline any safety issues involved.
