Packard bell power supply

How can i test if my power supply unit is bust on my mc 2559 PB, it use to just power up and the just the fan would run loudly, now it doesn't even do that now. I've got it in pieces and when i put power into it the main light comes on for a split second then goes out.
Any help would be great.
Thanks for your time.

The motherboards short out when the box goes out most of the time, you should get a new power box, and a motherbaord.

There is a distinctive smell of overheatead transformer. The Psu feels hot to touch. The Cd drive is alsao hot. Is it possible I will need to replace both?

I would try blowing the dust out of them first and make sure the power supply fan is working if this does not help I would replace the power supply first. Also blow the bust out of your cpu heatsink as well

The style of power supply is different from a universal power supply. A universal power supply won't fit in the slot properly.

Take your current power-supply to any computer-store, so that they can match its size, and its connectors (both the number of connectors and the shape of the connectors), with a replacement power-supply unit.

Power switch light is on but no other poweris getting through, changed the power supply but same problem. light comes on power button but power supply fan doesn't even come on.

No beeps are heard, no CPU fan is turning on, only blinking yellow light. This brand usually experiences this problem.
  1. First, check the power supply. Disconnect connectors from the board and make a jumper wire for the green wire to any black wire. If the PS fan does not spin then it's busted, else proceed below.
  2. Reconnect connectors except the one with 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, then switch on. If CPU fan turns on then you have a bad processor.
  3. If the fan is still not turning on then check the USB port pins for short circuit.. disconnect it from the board and switch on.
  4. Do the same with other hardware connected to the board.
PS: The metallic casing of computers must be connected to the common ground of the power utility to protect it from stray currents that result to damage of sensitive components such as processors, memory and hard disks.

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.
