Question about E-Machines T3065 PC Desktop
Perhaps during the interlude that the eMachines wasn't being used, there was a power outage, or lightning struck nearby.
The first hardware component that I would check, would be the Power On switch, and Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
If bypassing turns the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power On switch.
If bypassing does Not turn the Power Supply on, the problem is the Power Supply.
Inside the plastic Power On button, is a Power On switch.
It is a Momentary Contact Switch.
Below is one example of a Power On switch, I have found to fit many computers.
Bypassing is done with a jumper wire, inserted into the back of the 20/24-pin ATX main power cable connector.
The jumper wire Briefly, touches the Soft Power On wire (Green) terminal down in the connector, and ANY Ground terminal. (Black)
I listed 20/24-pin above, because I don't know if the T3065 uses a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.
Below is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's corresponding connector,
The photo all the way to the Right, shows the back of the connector.
It is plugged into the motherboard.
The Front of the connector is plugged into the female socket on the motherboard.
The Back of the connector is shown, and this is the area the power wires go down into.
Here you can see the green Soft Power On wire.
ANY of those Black wires are Ground wires.
I have Not detailed this procedure yet.
Do Not attempt it until I do.
I want to know first, if you are interested in doing the procedure, and will also outline any safety issues involved.
