T2085 will not turn on

I have an EMachine T2085, I've had it for at least 3 years with no problems. It was working fine this morning, no power surge or outage happened.
This evening it will not turn on at all. The power light does not come on, no fan noise... nothing... completely dead.
I've read some of the other posts and looks like it might be a power supply issue?
What are recommendations... ? And just how difficult is it for me to replace power supply myself? eMachines W3107 will not turn on. First it was the USB in the front, it came with missing prongs, I wasn't too concerned because I knew I wouldn't need that specific piece so I kept the machine. However, I haven't had any problems with the machine until recently went is shut down and will not turn back on. No power outages, nothing. Just won't turn on.

It is fairly easy to replace the power supply, a few screws to remove the power supply then it is just a matter of unplugging all the power connections from the old one, swapping out the supplies and matching the power connections up with the same locations as before.
Draw a diagram and mark the connections or take photo if in doubt, but just be sure you ground yourself before starting (and as needed) to eliminate any static electricity and be careful about too much putting stress on the motherboard, the connectors should come off easily, but some have locks that need to be released .

You will need a 300 watt ATX power supply similar to the one shown here http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=2159142 and should be able to procure one locally, and in fact if you have the case open and take it to a small computer shop, they would probably put it in for free if you bought the supply from them as it really only takes a few minutes.

I hope you are not one of the unlucky ones, but I also found this article, but I cannot confirm its validity/

It does sound like a power supply. you can pick one up for around 80 bucks retail. they aren't that hard to install. 2 plugs on the mobo and one for each drive you have installed. all you do is unscrew the current power supply (4 screws on the back), then unplug all wires connecting the power supply to the components. then take out the old power supply and work in reverse with the new power supply.
if the computer doesn't work after that, it is possible that you need a new mother board. in that case, personally i would return the power supply and start looking for another computer.
but hopefully it is just the power supply.

My JVC flat screen won't turn on, tried unplugging and resetting. Stand-by light is still on. And it's attached to a surge protector than to the wall. I've only had this for 1 year.


More than likely its bad capacitors on the Power supply very common problem with most models. You can get repair kits or replacement power boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

My emachine EL1352G-41W wont turn on?


Power supply is most likely your problem--many desktops with this issue have before it happens an issue where it has to be turned on several times and will finally come on and stay on.

The power supply in most cases is a unit that can be removed and tested (most shops charge little or nothing for this.)

If you are able to get it out look for bad filter caps on that board--some examples:

If puffy caps are found you have two choices---replace them all or if possible buy a generic power supply replacement............

Just curious, I have an Emachine T2085 and was wondering what the larget processor you can put in the stock motherboard


It is a socket A motherboard, so any processor for it will be ancient. In reality, it might be cheaper or not that much more (old parts get expensive, in fact, newegg lists no socket A procs) to replace the motherboard, ram, and processor with something more modern that will give you more kick.

T2085 will not turn on


Obviously you have tried change of power cord, move the pc to another power outlet or test the one you are plugged into with a desk lamp or hair drier or whatever.. Also, some pc's have an on/off switch at the back of the box, especially if it's a tower pc, check that first.

Now, do you have access to another PC? Because it's easier to check this web site out, to see how to replace the power supply.. If not, post here for more help. Rgds,

Envision EN7410e monitor


Just fixed mine. Maybe it's a few years late. Hope you guys still have the display. It's the power supply board. I've just replaced 4 bulge capacitors near one edge of the PS. They are 2x1000uF 10V, 1x470uF 25V & 1x470 10V. I salvaged my parts from an old CRT monitor. Hey you can go green with your repairs too!

Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start


Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!
