Question about Acer AX1200-U1520A PC Desktop

1 Answer

The local municipal power supply cut on and off intermittently and several times browned out over the last week. the PC could only be restarted after unplugging for a while. Often this had to be repeated several times before success. The last time, aware when the power was being turned off, I shut the computer down properly, disconnected the power cord. Now power is restored, but I am unable to get the PC to come on normally or by the previous means. There is no indication of power at all as opposed to the PC just not booting up.any ideas?

Sometimes in side the power supply over time the parts go bad a little at a time. it will work as lone as you leave it on but if you turn in off the switch mode power supply will not restart due to the parts that go bad. replace the power supply and it should be ok. there could be other things but this is the most likely.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

Computer has power will not start up


The power-supply must output several different voltages to meet the needs of several components.

First, try a different power-supply.

Second, look at the capacitors (those tall cylinders on the motherboard, with the X cut into their silver-coloured tops). If any of them are domed, i.e., not flat, or there is anything similar to "brown-rust" on top of any capacitor, your motherboard has failed, and needs to be replaced.

It won't turn on. The TV has been intermitant for a about a week.


Hi.

Try first leaving the TV disconnected from power for several hours. Also test on a different main, eventually using an extension.
If the problems started intermittently last week, then there is probably a fault.

If there is no power at all it is a faulty power supply.
If the TV instead is in standby, then the set must be tested to find the fault.
Common faults may concern convergence, PSU, ballast board, control and signal I/O.

Here all parts for your set.

What is brown out


Brown-out .... What is it? Brown-out is a condition of lower than normal power line voltage being supplied by your local utility or generating equipment. This condition may be short term (minutes to hours) or long term (1/2 day or more). A power line voltage reduction of 8 - 12% is usually considered a Brown-out.
What causes Brown-outs? Electric utilities (your local, lovable Power Company) may occassionally reduce line voltage to Brown-out levels in an effort to adequately manage power generation and distribution during periods of heavy usage. Very hot days, when most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment would be operating almost continuously, is an example of such a situation.
Even without utility intervention, extreme overloads caused by most air conditioning and refrigeration equipment operation could tax the electrical distribution system to the point where a permanent brown-out state could exist over much of the power company distribution network.
Locations at ends of long electric distribution lines may experience chronic Brown-out conditions due to line loss. Intermittent heavy loads on this trunk circuit may cause the Brown-out effect to fluctuate with the load.
Installations using ship-board or temporary power sources are especially prone to operation in a Brown-out mode. Usually of limited capacity, it is quite easy to overload the power source, giving rise to permanent Brown-out. (Permanent Black-out, if users are not careful).
What are some common effects of Brown-outs? Brown-outs are the mother of all sorts of Bad Stuff.
Power supplies in some electronic equipment may fall out of regulation. Errors, due to erratic power supply performance, may creep into computer operations.Other electronic equipment may function poorly - or not function at all.
Marginally performing devices (electronic or electric) will probably cease operation entirely.
Motors will overheat. Some motor types will slow down.
Electrical interference will greatly increase. Increased interference may affect computer and communication operations.
Off-line UPS units (the vast majority of lower cost units) continuously cycle between power line and internal battery operation. UPS batteries (generally sized to provide only 5 - 10 minutes back-up) will soon be discharged, unable to generate additional Back Up power. You are out of business. If system has not been shut-down, the entire system (UPS & computer) may snap back to life when power rises slightly, only to again shut down when the power line voltage falls back into the Brown-out zone. Such "ON-OFF" operational cycling is unhealthy for UPS, batteries and connected electronics. For Brown-out correction see our Voltage Regulator Page.
Spikes generated by electrical machinery also greatly increase. Air conditioners, refrigerators and other motorized devices generate local spikes. Industrial machinery (often miles away) create additional spikes which may find their way unto the electrical distribution system, and into your sensitive, valuable equipment.
