POWER ISSUES? OR MOTHER BOARD......

I TURN THE POWER ON AND ONLY THE FANS RUN. I NOTICE SOME SCORCHING ON THE SMALL ( WHITE ) 4 PRONG PLUG MARKED( P2 ) WHERE THE 2 YELLOW / 2 BLACK, WIRES FROM THE POWER SUPPLY PLUG INTO THE MOTHER BOARD. SOMETIMES IT BOOTS UP, ONLY TO FREEZE UP ABOUT 20 MI. TO AN HOUR LATER. I KNOW THERE IS POWER BECAUSE OF THE SMALL GREEN LED ON THE MOTHER BOARD... SO MY QUESTION IS WHATS THE ISSUE? TO HOT? A SHORT? COULD REALLY USE SOME HELP HERE.. THANKS.

IT WAS THE POWER SUPPLY. AS SOON AS I PUT A NEW UNIT IN, IT BOOTED RIGHT UP... NO PROBLEMS YET AND IT'S BEEN ABOUT 20 HOURS. I WAS TOLD THAT A POWER UNIT WILL DO THAT BEFORE IT GOES FOR GOOD(ALONG WITH *********** BOARD)....

My desktop computer loses power when I plug the 4 prong power connector into the motherboard. I have tried a new power supply but it does the same thing


Maybe we need more information. The motherboard needs that connector. Is it disconnecting physically? Check the plastic clasp that hold it in place. Be sure the large ATX connector is connected properly. Unplug then plug it back in.
What do you mean by it loses power? Are the fans running when it is plugged in? Do the fans run when it is not plugged in? Try unplugging everything except your video card, CPU, RAM, and keyboard. Plug the ATX connectors in including the 4 prong one. If it still doesn't work check your capacitors. They are the cylinder looking cans soldered on the motherboard. Are they bulging or leaking? Might be time for a new motherboard. Good luck.

Don't know where to attch all plugs for gt4016 mb


what plugs? All of them? Power supply plugs should be marked as well as different. Hard drive cable gos in the # 1 slot dvd and so on go in slot #2. If the cpu fan is installed some have a power supply plug others plug in to the mother board. Most of the time it will be close to the cpu and only a two prong plug. Most of the time all the of the wires will be marked in small writing on the plug itself and its as simple as getting a flash light and match the plug with the socket on the board that are almost always marked

Hotpoint dwf61p dishwasher trips house rcd immediately when the on switch is pressed


Do you have an control board or a timer? Control board is touch panel time is a knob the you turn to start dishwasher. Most likely what is going on in you have melted wired where they connect to dishwasher.
To check/ correct
Turn dhishwasher off at breaker. Unplug dishwasher also if you can. The bottom of your dishwasher on the outside in front at bottom. There is an access panel usually requires 1/4 inch nut driver or phillips screw.driver. Remove panel. To the right side you will notice a silver square plate that has wires running into it. Remove the 1 screw usually on left with 1/4 inch nut driver. Examine the wires. Any kind of melting or scorch marks. If scorch marks are present. If you have an outlet the the dishwasher plugs into than replace cord. If its hardwaired ( ran directly from dishwasher to circuit breaker. Cut wire back make sure you dont cut too much. Remove all scorch marked wires and take off a little bit more to be safe. Reconnect wires use wire caps and electrical tape. After you finish this if the problem still persist contact a certified electrician you change the breaker and test the wiring.

If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact

Shuts off after 15 minutes. Fans not working.


sounds like there is an issue with the power supply board in the tv. if the fans are not running then you may want to check those connections. also check the power supply board for any scorch marks.

My e-machine will not turn on....I have put in a new power source, tried a different turn on switch, the power light on the mother board comes on but its as if it is just plain dead...no fans run when youi...


My sister had the same issue with hers. She said one day it died. I replaced the power supply, the little lights on the mobo came on, but the computer did not power up. Come to find out, when the "best-tec" power supply fried, it surged the motherboard and fried that as well. I replaced the motherboard and it works like a charm.

No start up , button lites up - cd-rom wont open , noticed no fans on for 3d card or big one on mother board


If the cpu/heatsink fan isn't turning then most pc's will shut down to avoid further damage to cpu & board. I would first replace the fan if it's the one over your cpu. Try replacing power supply. If your board has the 4 pin plug, you must have that plugged in. But keep in mind if that fan isn't running a new power supply isn't going to make it start working. You have to have that fan working. Then go from there. If once it is working & other devices like video and/or roms aren't, check your memory. The best way to troubleshoot devices are to plug one at a time in and power up until the problem starts. Hopefully you won't have to go to that step.

System will not power up


Have you replaced the cmos battery(disc shaed flat 3V CR2032), although there could be more sinister problems than this as the mobo or processor may be damaged.

Fan will not stop


About the only way to try to reset it is to unplug the oven. Im not sure if it's a convection fan or blower fan that is running but it sounds like one of the fan relay contacts on the board is shut. In a normal standby condition these contacts should be open. You can test these at the control board if you know how to use an ohmeter. On harness P2 on the control board you should have 10 to 15k ohms between p2-5 (grey) to white and 8 to 12 k ohms on p2-6 (orange to white). These tests are done with the power off. If you are not familiar with doing these tests, best call a tech in. Catriver...post back.
