Re: SFX-1211J no -5vdc

The -5 V requirement for ATX supplies was dropped after V1.3. It was used primarily for the old legacy ISA slots - though not exclusively. If you test any contemporary supply made in the last few years if will show a -5 V failure because it just ain't there! Unless you had a really old MB, the supply is probably fine. Look at the 20 or 24 pin MB connector and if there is no line where the -5 would be ( pin 18 ) then you have no problem.

Missing -5VDC and -12VDC

Could be.Some do some don't.Some have a circuit breaker. Take the cover off and check. Be careful though as some parts in the power supply can hold a pretty significant charge for quite a while even after the power supply is turned off.If there is no fuse or if you change the fuse and it blows again I would say a new power supply is in order. Good luck.

Hello diallo

Do you mean which wire is the +5VDC on?

There is an industry standard for coloring of computer power supply wires.

+5VDC is on the RED wires.

HERE is a link on Computer Power Supplies "ABCs" that will be very helpful to you, I think.

Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you

H P 15-1443-000-0375-6533 power defect

P-8 is an extra for optional added items. Sounds like your power supply unit took a few jolts. The fine wires in the motor are under high tension. If too many snap, the frays cause a short and the unit won't power up. Try replacing that before you go buy a ton of stuff.
