Location of power supply fan

Thanks for the info on my previous post. I have noticed now that the fan for my new power supply is located on top, not the back like the old unit. The top panel is solid with no holes for a fan, it is a Powmax 400W with clear side tower. Do you know of a good solution? I don't want to leave the top open like it is now ( i have no kids here to worry about)

I have seen those type of power supply, but maybe, you can change the orientation of the PSU? remove the power supply form the casing, re install it with the fan facing downwards.
Hope this helps.

if this does not work try it in reverse Hold Menu down on TV and Vol- on hand unit. Check your Lamp Fan see if it quits running while turning set on,if it starts and stops it is defective, other wise Follow wires that Lamp plugs into it will connect to Ballast board that powers Lamp CK it Problem M/B Ballast Board.

Fan top back of unit is on and off continuely and making noise as in a failing bearing. I have removed the retaining screws, however the wiring has no disconnect to permit removal from the fan. Otherwise...

Unplug unit. Find name plate info on back of fan. It may be a 6 watt stamped CW. The rotation on small watt motors is based on looking at it from the "lead" end or rear of motor. You will have to cut the cord, WHEN UNIT IS UNPLUGGED. A new fan motor can be connected to the old cord with wire nuts. Install old blade on new fan motor.

I am looking for instructions on how to replace my e-machine atx-250-12e power supply connection.

they're pretty much all the same.

open the case. pull the 20/24 pin power plug and optional 4-pin power plug out of the botherboard. Remove power plugs from fans, hard drives, cd drives, etc.

unscrew the four screws anchoring the power supply to the case. Slide out the power supply. Put a new one in it's place, the screw holes will line up. Then reconnect the power cables just like they were when you removed the old one and boot 'er up.

All you have to do is make sure the wattage rating of the power supply is higher or equal to the old one. Your old one is only 250 watts. You will have to search VERY hard to find one that low, so don't worry.

E-machines doesn't make particularely powerful desktops so you won't have compatibility problems. Almost EVERY atx psu on the market will work.

No power to unit.

earth5worker was on point. If there seems like there is absolutely no power going into your projector, take off the six screws (will need a very thin long screw driver), and pull off the silver cover (use a flat screw driver to pry open the side that has the clip which is holding the cover together. Press in a small red button in which is located by the lens. Put the cover back in, six screws, plug power and catch the Wildcard football games baby!! Wow I feel so good right now. Thanks for passing this info guys. P.S. Do not remove or unscrew the lamp compartment as I did, just a waste of time.

NO response

can you post a little more info, as the case you fitted the motherboard to, does it have a new power supply, as it could be the power supply unit, if it came with a psu then check the cmaos battery and as long as you know you have connected the front panel connectors correctly, if theres no sign of the drives flashing it may well be the processor, but more info please

Hi, "No fan, no hard drive, no noise" means the motherboard is not getting any power which is kinda out of sync because you are getting a power on light indicator. To confirm if your power supply is ok, check if the fan inside the power supply is working. you can look at the back of the casing, if it is turning then psu is ok. Try to reseat the power connector from the psu to the motherboard, some of the pins may not be in perfect contact but others are that's why the led lights up, but the mb is still dead. Please let me know how it works out for you. Regards.
