X 346 powers on, then shuts down - no HDD installed
Hi, I recently received an x series 346 with no HDD and only one power supply. I plugged the unit in, and it receives power (the power led blinks). However, when I press the power button, it turns on for a moment (fans run, etc) then it shuts down. Do I need a HDD to test the server?
Re: x 346 powers on, then shuts down - no HDD installed
Even without the harddrive, you should be able to see the server power up with Bios/Memory test. It should be able to indicate to you that no drive found. In addition, you should be able to press F1 or F2 to enter into system setup.....hope this help

Hi, has the problem recently started after the installation of sp3 because it has been known to cause problems like your having. If the computer is a new build it could be one of two problem, the asrock motherboard which i personally wont use anymore because of constant failure, or your power supply is not powerful enough. i would recommend nothing less than 500w power supply for gaming pc`s.
The internal power supply to the HDD is often suspect in these units. Check you have power on the internal plug to the HDD from the circuit board. if you do not Try fitting an external HDD power supply (£15) this cured my unit which had a similar fault.
Hope this helps - good luck.
Send the unit back and get another power supply. These units are known to not be able to keep up with the load. Here is something I found discussing them:
I already had mine replace by Thermaltake (that was nice of them) but here we go again... I have to send this replacement unit because (same as the first) it shuts down/reboots whitout any warning. it has lots of connectors, but what good are they if it can't keep up. the first unit also was overheating way too much, I have to say that the replacement does not overheat, its actually cool (when it works) but I can't recommend this unit... too many reboots, without any explanation of something wrong.
Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
Some CD that came with it hopefully. If you do, then you may be able to stay alive here. Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. or get a new mastreo series 4000 or higher.the 700 is no longer servicable that was at the magellan website
yes it could be, although the hdd wouldnt work either, unplug the 21 pin connector from the power supply unit that is connected to the motherboard power connector and see if the plastic plug has melted into the socket, if you cant pull it out theres a good chance it has.
Unplug all the speaker wires first, then unplug the unit from the wall for at least 24 hours, The plug back in without the speaker wires or anything else plugged in. Then see if it goes to the protection mode. If it does not, plug in each speaker at a time, and see if any speaker, when hooked up, makes the receiver shut down. If it does shut down, My friend, I'm afraid you will need to take this unit into a repair shop, OR get a new unit. Good Luck
