E-machine model T2862 pin-out for the 10-pin front panel header is screen-printed on my Emachine's motherboard, but is so small and far away from the actual pin location, that it is likely being overlooked. If looking into the computer case from the side where you remove the panel, the header looks like a row of four pins with one missing at the farthest right pin location, and a row of 5 pins underneath that, with the fifth pin directly below the missing (key) pin in the row above it. Starting on the first row, you would install the 2-pin connector from the front panel labeled "Power LED" to the leftmost and 2nd from the left pins. (You may need to switch it around to get it to work as the LED is polarized. You will know as soon as the system starts to boot up if it is on properly, as this light burns constantly if the unit is on.) Then, to the right of that connection, you would connect the 2-pin connector labeled "Power Switch" to the 3rd and 4th pins from the left on the first row. (It does not matter which way around this connector plugs on, as all we are really doing is allowing the front panel button to connect these pins together to turn the system's power supply on when you press the button.) OK! Drop down to the BOTTOM row of pins below the first row. To the leftmost and 2nd from the left pins on the second row you will install the connector labeled "HDD LED". (Again, you may have to switch it around to get it to work since it is polarized. You will have to watch the system boot up and as the hard drive is accessed, you will see it blinking randomly if it is connected properly. NOTE: You will not damage anything if this or the power LED is hooked up wrong. They simply will not function. So don't fret, just switch them around.) Next, the header has room to connect a reset switch if your system has one. (Mine does not.) You would install the 2-pin connector labeled "RESET" to the 3rd and 4th pins from the left on the second row of pins. (Again, this is a connector that works fine regardless of which way around you install it, as it simply lets the reset button connect these pins to reset the system when the button is pressed.) Finally, you will notice one pin is left unused below the missing (KEY) pin. As far as I know, this pin does nothing, but is likely a ground or maybe a source for DC power as I have seen before. The unused pin above it is for manufacturers who make one connector coming from the front of the case which is pre-wired with all these functions, so the connector (usually with 10 total possible wire locations) can have that one location sealed or capped to prevent someone from installing it the wrong way around and potentially sending voltages somewhere they shouldn't be going, or causing something to not work properly. I made a quick pic in MS Paint below for better reference:

What is the Series of the Unit? Most of these diagrams are available on the Manufacturers Website for just this reason, But I would need more information on the Model and Series of these computers to give you the URLs for this

I am looking for the specs for a motherboard for a t2862 emachine, more specific for the connection from the mother board to the on/off switch


This is a link to an UN-Official eMachine website: http://www.e4allupgraders.info/ . I found your motherboard but NO info on the jumpers. It is an Intel motherboard but they're website has no info either. So, on the right side of the eMachine page there is a eHelp Forum. They should be able to get the right pins for your power switch.

Hopefully eMachines are consistent with their wiring/layout design, that being the case this diagram for T2898 (by benz18724) should point you in the right direction...

Alternatively compare the abbreviated pin symbols on the header to the motherboard and match them up.

Emachines t3830 I need the schematic for MB I umployed the wire for the push bottom without looking at the way they were plug. Now I do not know the correct aligning of the push bottom wires.


If you look at the motherboard there is usually a diagram labeled "FRONT PANEL HDR" that will tell you which pins are for: HDD LED, PWR LED, RESET, PWR ON. etc.
The chart / diagram may be a few inches away from front panel header.
the following example is from my emachine T2893 that I had opened because it won't power up.

the motherboard at the header connector labels pin #2 and with that you can figure out the other
pin numbers

example of diagram on motherboard (Confirm the pin numbers on your motherboard)


J9G1 PINS
| HD LED | 1 - 3 |
| PWR LED | 2 - 4 |
| RESET | 5 - 7 |

| PWR ON | 6 - 8 |

Hope this helps you figure which pins to hook you switch up to.

Hi dallasblue08,

Here's a diagram of what your looking for:

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958

Emachine t2742 I also have a wiring problem!


gtater,
It's ironic that you ask me this question today-- i am just now carrying in another eMachine computer to fix. Anyway, unfortunately I do not have one that is the same model as yours (T2742). However, I did some quick research and found that yours has the same exact motherboard as the T2898 which I made the diagram for!

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958

284ecac.png

For further reference, I would like to share this diagram for the eMachines T6544 in case someone else may need this model. This is the computer I just carried in... might as well share.

By the way, the power switch doesn't need to be oriented any particular way (positive and negative), which is why the switches are not labeled as + or -. Switches can be wired either way and they will work the same.

Hope this helps.

Emachine front panel power switch


Here's the Support Link for your desktop. Look under User Guides, Hardware Reference. Also look on the motherboard for markings such as PW or PS and an indicator to where the wire goes.

Front panel leads


Hi,

Pls confirm if your eMachine T2682 is using an Intel D845GVSR motherboard. If yes then this zipped pdf document is its manual. The different connection points is shown in p.14. With respect to orientation, for the switches - none, for the LEDs - there is a polarity orientation/requirement. The correct way is to use a continuity tester, determine which pins are tied to the ground and which are the anode/cathode of the LEDs. The short way is to power the unit and test plugin the LED's connectors and check which way they will light up. Just be sure to do it real quick so as not to burn them if the polarity is reversed. If it does not light up, reverse.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
