What do you mean wire it in for all the voltages? What are you installing it in to?

Please let me know the make / model of machine or board you are trying to attach it to and I can help.

60PN5000 LG turns off after about 3 mins. Power supply board?

Could be, but other boards can pull down a voltage too. To find this measure all the different voltages on the power supply board. If they are all present and correct then the problem is elsewhere. If you have a lower voltage, remove a wire connector going to another board and re measure the voltage. If the voltage returns to normal, then the board that that wire connector goes to is the problem. Do this again with each of the other connectors on the power supply board. If, after you have all the connectors removed and the voltages don't come back, then the power supply board is bad.

How do i know wich wire is wich voltage

You will need a multimeter that can test DC voltage. Power supplies don't always use the same color coding system so depending on the model it's possible your values will be different.

That being said the ATX standard is the most likely and I have attached a picture of the pinout and color chart.

How to make a pc power unit work without a motherboard?

There are two pins on the atx connector you need to bridge. You can wire a switch to the pins too if you want so you can toggle on and off. Otherwise, there is a guy on eBay (seller id: antronst) that sells a connector with the pins already bridged with a on/off switch and a resistor wired in to provide some stability for five or six dollars.
Here is a diagram. Make sure it is a standard atx power supply. Some old Dells had goofy wiring.

How are all these voltages wired into the plugs. I need the 12V 4pin to power my CPU

Yellow = 12V
Red = 5V
Orange = 3.3V
Green = PS-On
Black = GND (0V)
Blue = -12V
White = -5V
Brown = 3.3V probe
Purple = 5Vsb
Grey = PwrGood (Power Good)

How can I test voltages on the Enermax Galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000-Watt Power Supply unit out of the computer.

Most motherboards will give tell you all of the voltages being provided by the power supply in the bios under hardware or health monitoring section. Otherwise you will need a multimeter to test the different voltages. You would want to set the multimeter to the 20v or similar setting. Depending on what voltage you would want to test would determine the color of wire you would check. You would connect the black/negative/ground lead of the multimeter to one of the ground wires coming from the power supply normally a black wire. The 12v is normally a yellow wire, the 5v is normally a red wire and the 3.3v is normally an orange wire. The wires may be different colors so you may want to look up the ATX pinouts to find the exact voltages you want to measure.

Want to replace API-7506 power supply. Is there an equivalent available in Canada

Pull the old one out and go down to Futureshop. Any brand will do as long as:

1. the connectors are the same type
2. the physical size will fit in your case
3. the wattage is the same or more than 330W

The are available several places in Canada and it doesn't need to be IBM.

Power supply for mac g4 model AcBel api 9841 is  not swich on

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "is not swich on" but I'm assuming your G4 will not turn on when you press the power button. You most likely have a bad power supply. If you want to make sure it is the power supply and are comfortable using a multimeter and following a few instructions then I've included a link below to an Apple knowledge base document explaining how to test a power supply.

How to test the power supply

WARNING: You will be working with live power. Take caution to follow the directions exactly and pay attention to where your placing your leads.

Hope this helps, don't forget to leave feedback if you found this helpful.

Switching power supply ??

For your purposes there is no difference: all you need to know is the voltage your WD drive requires, and the maximum current load it needs. Any regulated DC power supply with that voltage and *at least* that current will do.

Not-so-technically, a "regular" power supply will supply power at the correct voltage by "discarding" a portion of the extra potential. A "switching" power supply will shunt and switch the extra power away, so that instead of being "lost", it is "not requested" from the uplink grid. In theory a perfect switching supply will have no losses, and therefore dissipate no waste heat (in practice there will be some losses, and cooling will be needed). The important thing, though, is that a switching power supply can deliver twice as much power as a "normal" supply, and the same power in a half as big package.

I need a power supply for my 500 gig drive the model number is AD6008

If the green indicator diode comes on for a second or two, then goes off, then the protection circuit in this PS is being activated.  This PS is a SMPS with two surface mount IC - one is the pulse width modulator and the other I think is a voltage regulator.  The PWM chip will shut down the PS if the temperature rises or it receives a signal from the regulator.  This is what I think happens to cause the PS problem.

The only way to deactivate the shut down, is disconnect the drive, disconnect the mains and turn the mains back on.  However, as soon as you put a load across the PS, the green light will go out and the PS shuts down again.

The most likely cause of this will be one of the four filtering electrolytic capacitors on the output side of the transformer.  They are easy to spot as they are clustered together and are probably dark green.  Look closely at the relief valve stamped in the top of the cap - it this shows signs of bulging, then you have found your problem.  Order the caps of ebay for about a £1.00 and your problem is fixed.

It has been known that fake electrolytic caps have been circulating around for quite some time.  Interestingly, the one that blow on me was also used on motherboards, and this is where the fake caps caused most problems.

No Power

Dear Sir,

I assume, you have voltmeter with you.
Set VOM to DC 20 V range.
Remove the Power Supply from cabinet. Be sure you have proper earth in your house/workshop.
On the 20/24 pin main connector of your power supply, short the pins carrying green & black wire.
Hook your voltmeter -ve on any black pin of the connector permenantly.
& then connect the mains power cord to your power supply.
If your power supply is ok, this shall start the fans of the power supply on & running. Now you can check the voltages on different pins. There is a sticker on your power supply showing the normal voltages on every wire.
If you don't see any / normal volatges, your power supply needs repairing. You can buy a new one/ repair existing.
