    My daughter has an Emachine T2885 that recently stopped powering up. Suspected a bad PSU though there was still indication of power on the mobo (green light). Thought maybe partial failure. Replaced PSU (added 100W), no good. Also removed & tested power on switch, It doesn't seem to be working (appears open). Shorted it, no good. Web search suggested jumping PSU green to ground, also suggested J9G1 jumper may be incorrect (but I don't think so). Which ground location would be best (ie. safest) to jump to, and should I leave the wire in place in the harness and add a wire or remove it & jump direct to other location. Thanks.

Sounds like you need to run anti-virus, and possibly reinstall your Operating System.

Have an emachine T2885 took side panel off to clean put back on now no power. and there is no switch in back so i couldnt of turned it off

Nothing serious, sounds like you may have accidentally disconnected some of the wiring by accident while wiping the dust away! Just reopen it and check what's unplugged in the system. - Hope that helped =]

Can u possibly tell me where i might be able to download a schematic for an EMachine desktop computer model #T2742? It is out of warranty and was donated to our church and we need to know where to...

Hi dallasblue08,

Here's a diagram of what your looking for:

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958


Hope this helps!

Emachine t2742 I also have a wiring problem!

It's ironic that you ask me this question today-- i am just now carrying in another eMachine computer to fix. Anyway, unfortunately I do not have one that is the same model as yours (T2742). However, I did some quick research and found that yours has the same exact motherboard as the T2898 which I made the diagram for!

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958


For further reference, I would like to share this diagram for the eMachines T6544 in case someone else may need this model. This is the computer I just carried in... might as well share.
By the way, the power switch doesn't need to be oriented any particular way (positive and negative), which is why the switches are not labeled as + or -. Switches can be wired either way and they will work the same.

Hope this helps.
