They have to be plugged in horizontally although it is possible to plug them in vertically because the pins are evenly spaced either way. they are color coded just not like you would expect for example one plug has a green wire and a white wire the green side goes to the green pin and the white side goes to a green pin with a white cross you have to look close because there are several green pins which is what threw me off do this with all three plugs

I have emachine t seris t2862 desktop and I donnot know how to connect power swich in mother board please help me


On the motherboard there will be a small set of connectors marked FPANEL, next to each of these will be a set of letters (usually PW, RES, HDD, MSG) and an earth pin, From the power switch you will see a two wire set normally black and white ending in a connector, this connects to the PW pins on the FPANEL

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights


Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY FOR AN EMACHINES T1120 COMPUTER. CANNOT FIND A SCHEMATICS DIAGRAM ANYWHERE.


After reading an article about Emachines awhile back, I found out the reason you can't find the schematic- it isn't available, as some motherboards are made specifically for Emachines and therefore not distributed, as they might normally be, but again, others are, but you have to identify them and go through another source to get them- Emachines, appartantly, will not supply them. All is not lost, however...all motherboards have, basically, the same hookups and connectors for the power supplies, hard drives, etc.- they are standard. I found a web blog that explains the power switch, reset, and power led, which will help. Here it is: http://www.computing.net/answers/hardware/emachine-power-sitch-wiring/56545.html
This site will explain about the 24 pin connector from the power supply
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/53750-7-installation-manual-rs480m-w3400-emachine-motherboard
If you google "motherboard wiring" you will find sites that have illustrations of the motherboard, and explain which connectors go to which sockets, and how to identify them.
With a little patience and determination, you should be able to hook everything up from the various blogs on the net. Hope this helps.

T6410 EMACHINE TRYING TO CONNECT START BUTTON


The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

Emachines problem... PSU works but comp doesnt turn on


Hi, Did you just add the second CD? If you did you may need the driver for the mother board? Make sure the power cord for the cd has voltage plug it into the DVD drive also check the cable make sure red stripe is on the correct side of drive. You can download the driver at http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T2672 User guide is there as well. The start button has a pair of wires with a small pin connector on it. This will connect to the motherboard if there is a 3 pin set you might try moving to the other pin. The new power supply also has to provide a start voltage? Your power supply may not be compatible or it may put the voltage on the third pin.
