    I have the same problem on an older machine, 2862t. The only thing I can think of is the power switch on the front of the machine is faulty.

I have a ET1331G-03W Emachine and this morning it was working and then it just shut down. When I went to start it again using the eluminated front button it came on for a second and then off. I unplugged...


emachine ! ( junk) sorry but sounds like the mother board died on ya time for a new one bro this is a hardware problem and emachines tend to do this after a year or two and if they don't get good air flow they get hot and fry out thats what it sounds like the mom board went out so don't waste your time trying to fix will end up costing you more to have someone do it right and will probably get ripped off in the process unless you know how to. so buy a new one the best desk tops are HP, toshiba, and get a higher end one if ya can sorry but is a spendy problem good luck and have a nice day the fixist

Power went off while downloading something


ok check in the back of the computer and see if the fan is coming on when you press the power button on the computer. if fan is not coming on then you need to replace the power supply that has the fan on it. this cause the computer to shut off and stay off. if the fan is working then use the system recovery disk to do a factory reset. put the disk in the drive and turn the computer on while holding down F1 or F2. then you will be taken to the windows screen. follow instructions from there and you will be fine

No boot, New PS, Green light on MB lights, No Fans running


Bottom line: Either your power supply or (hopefully not) the mother board has gone bad.
Replace power supply (remove old one), take to local independent computer shop, ask them for new unit. Should be around $50.00. - no more. After reinstall, if still no fans, boot, etc. Replace motherboard or buy a new machine. MB's installed probably will run you around $250.00-ish.
Good luck.

Emachines used to use a poor quality power supply made by Bestec, I believe the quality is supposed to have improved in the last few years but inconsidering the number of dead Emachines that wind up in my workshop I doubt it.
The problem you have is that being a poor quality power supply there is a very high risk that it damaged the motherboard when it went out.
If you can borrow a power supply just to test with all the beter BUT be carefull some Emachines are proprietary and the main motherboard plug is not always wired in the standard way.
Check here for a replacement power supply if you can prove your motherboard to be OK.

Have a look on this site for examples of standard and proprietary power supply wiring colours.

T2085 will not turn on


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.
