Replace burnt power cable


You can replace it with the average extension cord as most can hold up to 12 amps and your freezer will pull 2-5. Just cut the extension cord to length and cut before where the wires are burnt out. Strip wires and connect black to black, white to white and green to green. Marrett each section of wires and plug it in. If you use electrical tape to make a bundle with the Marretts afterwards that will make sure there is less of a chance the Marretts will fall off.



good luck

Bypass the Power On switch. This will tell you if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Has nothing directly to do with the Power On switch, or it's wires.

A jumper wire is used on the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.
Jumps from the green Soft Power On wire to ANY Black wire,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The top of the U is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This tape area is for your fingers and thumb to hold onto.

Turning the U-shape upside down the 'Legs' are what is used.
One leg goes down into a socket hole with the Green wire.
The other leg goes down into a socket hole with ANY black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

The BACK of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, is where the wires go into it.
The leg of the U-shaped paper clip, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.

Right next to the green insulation of the wire.
The 'leg' has to go pretty far down in the socket hole.
It has to go far down in the socket hole, and TOUCH the metal terminal at the end of the wire.

The other leg of the U-shaped jumper wire has to go down into a socket hole, with ANY Black wire in it. It also has to touch the metal terminal at the end of the Black wire, down in that socket hole.

[All wires going into the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, end in a metal terminal,

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

The Back of the metal terminal is the left side. The tangs on the left side, have not been crimped down on a wire yet. (Insulation)
The jumper wire touches this side.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Front of the metal terminal is the right side. The opening of the metal terminals, and Front side, can be seen in the middle photo of the Playtool link,


Power Supply plugged into power; 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, as shown in the photo to the far right in the Playtool link above.

The contact period of the U-shaped jumper wire is Brief.
No more than 2 seconds. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
IF, the Power Supply does NOT come on you have a bad Power Supply.

How do I bypass the soft power on switch on the friont of the computer


Actually it never depends k_akima

The Green - Soft Power On wire is jumped to ANY Ground wire.

Doesn't matter if it's a 20-pin ATX main power cable, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

If the Power Supply is an AT style, and not an ATX style, the question is redundant anyway. AT style doesn't have the Soft Power On feature.

John,
The eMachine EMonster 500a uses a TriGem - Napoli 2A motherboard,

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/Trigem/Napoli%2B2A/

The main power cable is a 20-pin ATX main power cable.
General example of power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

In the photo to the right, the Green wire is the Soft Power On wire.
A-N-Y Black wire you see is a -> Ground wire.

The preferred jumper wire is a paperclip straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.

Turn the U-shape upside down. The top is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

The 'legs' are what is used. They go down into the socket holes, in the back of the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

The back of the connector is where the wires go in.
Power cable is plugged into motherboard, as shown in the photo to the far right.

One 'leg' of the jumper wire slides right down into the socket hole, with the Green wire.
Slides RIGHT NEXT TO the insulation of the green wire, and touches a metal terminal down in the bottom.

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

The tip of this female metal terminal can be seen in the middle photo.
20 metal terminals, 20 tips seen.

For this reason, the 'leg' of the jumper wire must go down into the socket hole, pretty far.
MUST touch that metal terminal.

The other leg of the jumper wire goes down into a socket hole, with ANY Black wire in it. Again, ALL Black wires are Ground wires.
(Green wire = 5 Volts, or Positive wire.
Black wire = Ground wire, or Negative wire )

The contact made is 2 seconds. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.

I triger power switch but dose not work mother board


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

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/GC-LE/P4DL6.cfm

[For the motherboard user manual;
Go to the heading, to the upper right in blue - Links and Resources.
{Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. Let's try & }

In the list below it click on - Motherboard Manual
Click on the blue - [ Download ] for the second file listed.
MNL - 0660 (English)
P4DL6 / P4DLR / P4DLR+ ]


The SuperMicro P4DL6 motherboard can use a 20-pin ATX main power cable, OR a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Suggest you use a Power Supply, that has a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
Why?
A 20-pin ATX main power cable, does NOT provide enough power to the motherboard.

General example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[NOTE*
Color of the connectors does NOT matter ]

General example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Note the additional power wires.
3.3 Volts (Orange), 5 Volts (Red) { 2 of them }, and a Ground wire. (Black)

Which type of ATX main power cable are you using? Don't know. You haven't stated it.

For both,....look at the Green wire. This is the Soft Power On wire.
(Abbreviated as PS_ON)
A jumper wire is used to jump from the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Go to the link with the 24-pin ATX main power cable, in it.
Look at the photo to the far right. See the Green wire?
See all the Black wires?

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip, straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. The middle of the U is wrapped a few times, with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U over. Taped middle is up. There are now two 'legs'.
These legs go down into the socket holes, of the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One 'leg' down into the socket hole of the Green wire, the other 'leg' down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.
The 'leg' of the jumper wire, goes down RIGHT NEXT TO the wire already in the socket hole.

The 'leg' has to go down into the socket hole, (Next to the wire already in the socket hole), pretty far.
It has to go past the insulation of the wire, and touch a metal terminal, that is on the end of the wire.

Look at the middle photo. Here you can see the metal terminals, in the socket holes.

Again, Power Supply plugged into power. ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, just like the photo to the far right.
The jumper wire makes a contact of no more than 2 seconds.

(Stick the jumper wire down in the socket holes, no more than 2 seconds, then pull it out.
The ATX power on switch is a Momentary Contact Switch )

My Dell Dimension 5150 will not turn on? please help


fleebleflam,

D-I-A-G-N-O-S-E

Problem could be a $5 ATX power on switch, or the Power Supply.

I'll show you an easy test to determine which one it is.

Dell Support > Dimension 5150 Desktop PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/index.htm

BEFORE beginning;

1) Work on a table.
A couch, a bed, or directly on a carpet floor, are HIGH areas of Static electricity.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return.

3) In the list of the Service Manual, left-click on - Removing the computer cover.

Once the computer cover is removed, I want you to click on -
Technical Overview - in the Service Manual list.

On this page click on - System Board Components
Here you see an illustration of your motherboard. There are no hardware parts installed on it. Makes it better to see without all the cables in the way.

(There is no Processor, Ram Memory, add-on cards, or power cables plugged in, for a few examples)

Looking at the illustration of the motherboard, look down at the bottom right.
Look at the connector on the motherboard that has -
power connector (ATXPWR1) pointing to it.

Long connector that has 24 square socket holes in it. (Two columns of 12 socket holes)

Here is a photo of the motherboard,

http://www.ascendtech.us/dell-dimension-5150-5100-e510-board_i_mb4delrd203.aspx

Left-click on the photo to enlarge.
In this photo you see the connector again. It is to the bottom right.
White in color, and two columns of 12 socket holes.

The 24-pin ATX main power cable, from the Power Supply, plugs in here.

This is a more in-depth look at the connector on the motherboard, and the 24-pin ATX main power cable, that plugs into it,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

NOTE* Color of connector on motherboard, and connector on power cable, DOES NOT MATTER. Can be ANY color.

What I wish you to do is bypass the Power On switch.
This has NOTHING to do with the Power On switch.

(The Power On switch, is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly)

Look at the photo all the way to the right. This shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable, plugged into the motherboard. That is the way you want it.

Looking at the photo notice the Green wire. This is the Soft Power On wire.
Abbreviated as PS_ON.

Look at the Black wires next to it. ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.
You will use a jumper wire to connect the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip.
Straighten the paper clip out. __________________
Now bend the paper clip into a U-shape.

Wrap black plastic electrical tape around the middle of the U.
This is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.
The 'legs' of the U are what you use.
(It is turned upside down)

Again look at the green wire, and the socket hole it goes into.
The wire, and it's insulation (Green) go down into the socket hole, pretty far.
At the end of the wire is a metal terminal. Looks like this,

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

Power cable plugged into the motherboard you won't see it. Just wanted you to know what it looks like.

One leg of the U-shaped jumper wire, (Paper clip), goes down into the socket hole, with the Green wire.
Goes down RIGHT NEXT TO the Green wire, and MUST touch that metal terminal.

The paper clip leg slides down in the socket hole, right next to the Green wire, and touches the metal terminal.

The other leg of the paper clip goes down into a socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO
ANY Black wire. Has to touch the metal terminal.

Computer plugged into power, hold the black plastic electrical tape, and slide the legs of the paper clip, into those two socket holes.

The contact time made is no more than 2 seconds.

(Worried about being shocked? Don't be. It is 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

HOWEVER, there may be a small spark. Just want to let you know in advance, so you don't freak out )

Power Supply comes on? You have a bad ATX Power On switch.

One example,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Power Supply does NOT come on? You have a bad Power Supply.

Nothing to do with the motherboard.

Need recommendations for a Power Supply, and how to install it?

Not sure if motherboard just know computer wont power on.


I suggest you perform the test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply, first.

Power Supply (Computer) plugged into power, you will be using a jumper wire on the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable, while the power cable is plugged into the motherboard.

IF the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

IF the Power Supply does not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

This is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Older computers use this style of main power cable. (But not REAL old)

This is an example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Doesn't matter which style your motherboard uses, I just wanted to show you both.
Note that both power cables have a Green wire.

This is seen clearly in the photo all the way to the right, for both styles.
Notice also in the photo to the right how the wires go down into socket holes of the connector.
This is the BACK of the connector.

A jumper wire goes down in the socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO THE EXISTING WIRE that is in the hole.
The jumper wire has to go deep enough in the socket hole, to touch a metal terminal.

Every wire that goes into that connector ends in a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is at the FRONT of the connector.
Jumper wire has to go approximately 1/2 inch into the socket hole.

The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip. The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a
U-shape.
The center of the U is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

The 'legs' of the U-shaped jumper wire is inserted down into the socket holes.
One leg goes into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

The other leg goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Power Supply plugged into power, the jumper is inserted down into the socket holes - BRIEFLY
No more than 2 seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002)

{The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.
The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
Makes a Brief contact }

Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does NOT come on you have a bad Power Supply.

Connecting jumper for start up


That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19298234/19565862.aspx#19565862

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Emachine ET1810 is not powering on already replaced the power supply


You may have a bad Power On switch. The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button.

This is a generic ATX power on switch, that I have found works in many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

Have you bypassed the Power On switch?
If you bypass the Power On switch, and the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
If you bypass the Power On switch, and the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

Sometimes a new Power Supply can be bad.
Make SURE the ATX main power cable is plugged in tightly.

(I have had an instance recently where I bypassed the Power On switch, and the Power Supply came on, but only as long as the jumper wire was in place. Remove jumper wire? Power Supply went off. Removed the jumper wire, then pressed the Power On button. The Power Supply came on )

Bypassing the Power On switch has nothing to do with the switch itself, or the wires to the switch.
A jumper wire is used in the connector for the ATX main power cable.

My sources indicate the ET1810 uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

A jumper wire is used to connect the Green wire (Soft Power On. Also abbreviated as PS_ON) to ANY Black wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

Looking at the photo to the far right, you will see the Green wire goes down into a socket hole.
This is the Back of the connector.
The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole RIGHT NEXT to the Green wire.
The jumper wire has to go down into the socket hole pretty far.
(Approximately 1/2 inch)

At the end of the Green wire is a metal terminal. The jumper wire has to go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch that metal terminal.
Same thing for ANY socket hole with a Black wire.

(The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. It is a 5 Volt DC wire. The Black wires are Ground wires.
The jumper makes a circuit from the Soft Power On wire to a Ground wire)

The jumper wire usually preferred is a paper clip straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The middle of the U is wrapped with black plastic electrical tape.
This is where your fingers hold the jumper wire.

One end of the jumper wire goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The other end of the jumper wire goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.
The contact is no more than 2 seconds.

Nothing happens when I press power button


1) Make sure THE receptacle in the surge protector that the computer is plugged into, has power. Plug an electrical device such as a table lamp for example, into THAT receptacle. I have had a few surge protectors where just THAT receptacle was bad.

2) Receptacle checks out, I suggest you see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
(The Power On switch is located in the plastic Power On button.
This is an example of a generic ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The procedure involves bypassing the Power On switch.
If the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
If the Power Supply does Not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The procedure does not involve the wires of the Power On switch, nor the switch itself.
The procedure involves using a jumper on the ATX main power cable's connector.
Jumping from the Soft Power On wire (Green wire) to ANY Ground wire.
(ANY Black wire is a Ground wire)

The Acer Aspire T180 uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
The 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into the motherboard, in-between the Ram Memory slots, (Slot 4), and the outside edge of the motherboard.

This shows you a typical 24-pin ATX main power cable, it's connector, and the matching female connector on the motherboard,

When you open your computer case, (Computer unplugged from power), you will see various cables, and hardware components, plugged into the motherboard.

Viewing the photo in the link above, look to the right of the Orange Ram Memory slot.
You will see the blue connector.

The opaque whitish connector to the right of it, and next to the outside edge of the motherboard, is where the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugs into.

Looking back at the link that shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable (Playtool link), look at the photo to the far right.
This is what you will see when you open your computer case.

View the Green wire.
Now view the Black wires.

The jumper wire you will fashion, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One end of the jumper wire, will go down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The other end of the jumper wire will go down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.

The jumper wire will go down into the socket hole, Right next to the wire that is already in the socket hole.

(The Back of the connector is where the wires go in. The Front of the connector plugs into the motherboard.
The jumper wire goes into the Back of the connector, down into the socket holes, and right next to the existing wire that is already in the socket hole)

At the end of the power wires going down into the socket holes, is a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is pretty far down into the socket hole.
(Approximately 1/2 inch)
You need to ensure that the ends of the jumper wire Touch the metal terminals.

The jumper wire is fashioned from a paper clip.
The paper clip is first straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
Black plastic electrical tape is wrapped around the bend of the U-shape.
This taped area is where you hold onto the jumper wire.

The voltage for the Green (Soft Power On) wire is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
Low, low voltage in case you are concerned of being shocked.

However, you may wish to wear a glove on the hand that holds the jumper wire.
There may be a small spark.

Suggest you lay the computer on it's side, computer case open, opening of the computer case up.
(Won't hurt the computer to operate laying on it's side)

Place the ends of the jumper wire into the socket holes.
The contact is no more than 2 seconds.

Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

The Power Supply is an ATX.
(ATX form factor.
The ATX form factor for a Power Supply is approximately 6 inches Wide, {Width},6 inches Long, {Length},and 3-1/2 inches Tall {Height)
