Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

With power supply removed from chassis, how to get the supply on.

\015 I have the power supply removed from the computer. I want to plug the power supply into a 120v line and check the output voltages so I can use the power supply as an external DC source. The only way I can get the power supply to power up is to plug in the large cable harness to the chassis and push the front power button on the PC.\015\012\015\012There is a gray wire in one of the harnesses labeled ''power supply good'' and I don't know if it needs to be grounded or have 5V applied or ?? to get the pwr supply to turn on.\015

Answers :

!! the signal you want to short is not the power supply good (pin 8, gray wire) but the power supply ON (green wire, pin 14) which needs to be grounded to turn on the PSU. (short pin 14 and pin 13 or 15)
