DO NOT OPEN A POWER SUPPLY!!!!

NEVER!

Inside an SMPS, (Switched Mode Power Supply), are Electrolytic Capacitors.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATX_power_supply_interior-1000px_transparent.png

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Capacitors_electrolytic.jpg

(Radial. The bottom capacitor in the photo)

Electrolytic Capacitors slowly build up a charge, then release it all at once.
You can compare it to a large swimming pool being filled up with a garden hose, and then one wall of the pool being taken down all at once.

At the bottom, of the Radial (Style) Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor shown in the above photo link, are two leads.
One is Positive, the other is Negative.

Touch your finger/s to the terminals on the bottom of one of these babies, and the shock can be BAD to FATAL!

If your fingers touch, and complete a circuit that one, or more capacitors are in, the shock can be BAD to FATAL!

Don't open that power supply!

Besides, a fuse goes out All At Once.
There is no work a little bit, then turn off.
It just goes Poof!
(The fusible element inside burns into two separate pieces)

Now,

"You press the power button, and it doesn't turn on all the time"

As has been suggested, I also concur that you have a bad power supply.

But you could also have a bad Power On switch, located inside that plastic Power On button.

This is an example of a Power On switch, that I have found fits a lot of computers,

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

I'd like you to get this switch, and install it.
From there the diagnosis will go to the Power Supply.

Also would like you to make sure the ram memory is seated tight, and the Processor fan is spinning, and looks to be spinning at the right speed.

If the fan spins a few times, and stops, then spins a few times, you know the fan has a bad bearing. Replace.

If it looks to be spinning too slowly also, you'll know it

Be sure to follow anti-static precautions before you reach inside your computer, and the computer is unplugged from power.
If you do not know what anti-static precautions are, I'll be glad to tell you. Simply state so in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page)

As for the Power Supply test, you need either a multimeter, or a power supply tester.

An inexpensive multimeter, that will work just fine for this application, ranges from $6 to $12. The Voltages are only 3.3 Volts, 5 Volts, and 12 Volts. (DC)
Two C cell flashlight batteries are 3 Volts. (DC)

Your computer power supply puts out three main Voltages, as stated above.
A) 3.3 Volts (3 point 3)
B) 5 Volts
C) 12 Volts

Orange insulated wires are 3.3 Volts
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts

ANY Black insulated wire is a Ground wire.

This is DC Voltage.
There is a Positive, and a Negative.

The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter touches a power wire. (3.3, 5, or 12)

The Negative (Black) probe lead touches ANY Ground wire. (Black)

IF, the 12 Volt power rail shows 11 to 13 Volts, the diagnosis indicates the Power Supply to be good.
(However read on)

IF the 12 Volt power rail shows 11 Volts, or less, the Power Supply is bad.

This is an example of a power supply tester,

    "IF, the 12 Volt power rail shows 11 to 13 Volts, the diagnosis indicates
    the Power Supply to be good.
    (However read on)"

    The Power Supply has to be under a load, to come close to an accurate reading.

    All of the yellow 12 Volt wires end on one terminal post, inside the Power Supply. (On the circuit board)

    Same thing with the 3.3 Volt (Orange), and the 5 Volt (Red)

    This means for example, you can disconnect one power cable from a hardware component, such as one of the optical drives, (CD/DVD drive), and test the (Yellow) 12 Volt power wire in that 4-pin Peripheral connector.

    http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnect...

    You will be testing the 12 Volt power rail.
    You will have a load, because of all the other hardware components that are using power.

    Really, well I appreciate the rating, you are most kind!
    (Sincerely)

    You conducted these tests already, or did you find the problem to be elsewhere?

    Curious so I can add it to my 'knowledge bank'.
    Always willing to learn.

Just check the power supply of your PC if they are working. If the power supply are did not work, just check the fuse inside because it could be blown. Only the power supply have a problem if your PC did not power on. But if the power supply of your PC have a big damage inside, I recommend that you replace the whole power supply.

Turn off alarm without key fob


First off, you need to know the PIN.
Setting the PIN is as follows:

Think of a five-digit PIN, and write it down. Think of this set of numbers as a password for starting your bike and disabling the alarm during those times when you don't have your fob.
Turn the ignition key on, then off, then on, then off, then on again. Then press the left turn-signal switch twice. Press the right turn-signal switch once, and the current PIN should appear in your odometer.
Be sure the first digit of the PIN is flashing. Enter the first digit of your new PIN by pressing the left turn signal to cycle through the numbers.
Press the right turn signal once to switch to the second digit, and select the correct number with the left turn signal. Repeat this process until your new PIN is entered correctly.
Press the right turn signal once, then turn the ignition key off to save the PIN you selected.

Now, how to disable:

Let's assume for simplicity that your code is set at 31313 and you wish to use the manual disarm of the security system using the directional switches as if you lost your fob and cannot disarm the system.

Your security system will disarm the bike and it cannot be started without deactivating the system first.

If you are unsure of what the manual code is refer to the top of this page or check with your dealer and set one if it has not been set by them.

Again this is based on your code being 31313 just to make it easier to understand.

1. Turn the ignition to Accessory.

2. Press both turn signals. (security light should flash rapidly)

3. Press left turn signal button 3 times (the 1st "3" of the PIN). Press right turn signal button 1 time (to "set" the code number).

4. Press left turn signal button 1 time (2nd number of PIN). Press right turn signal button 1 time.

5. Press left turn signal button 3 times. Press right turn signal button 1 time.

6. Press left turn signal button 1 time. Press right turn signal button 1 time.

7. Press left turn signal button 3 times. Press right turn signal button 1 time.

Security light stops flashing and security system is disarmed.

If you've changed the number, use your new number instead of 31313.

Need codes to control symphonic 27" tv using rca universal remote control type rcr312w


  1. These instructions come from the RCA website. The crucial step is to keep pressing the reverse button.
  2. Turn on the component (the tv, dvd, etc).
  3. Hold the TV (or DVD) button and the on/off button at the same time. It will stay lit.
  4. Press the play button every five seconds until the component turns off.
    • Each time the Play button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks ten times and a block of 10 codes is sent to your component. This process continues until all the codes in the Code Lists have been searched. If the component has not turned off after all codes have been searched, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks four times, turns off, and the Auto Code Search Entry method is exited.
  5. When the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.
  6. If the component does not respond, continue to press the REVERSE button EVERY TWO SECONDS UNTIL THE COMPONENT TURNS ON again. This will isolate the correct code in the last block of codes sent. Each time the REVERSE button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks.
    • If the REVERSE button is accidentally pressed after the component responds, press and release the FORWARD button. Wait two seconds to see if the component turns off again.
  7. To save the new code, press and release the STOP button.
  8. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off. You must press the STOP button to save the code.
Tips
  • Turn on TV
  • Hold in the TV button and the ON/OFF button until the ON/OFF button stays lit
  • Press the PLAY button every 5 seconds until the device turns off
  • Press the REVERSE button every 2 seconds until the device turns on
  • Press the STOP button to lock in the code...the remote should work now.
  • Important to press reverse button every 2 seconds, not just once.
Good Luck!!
