Corsair TX850 gone bad?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Background:
see sig rig for specs. Been running fine for about 2 days, then a few moment ago went to turn it on again and it wouldn't do ANYTHING.

Things I've tried:
Pressing the Power button on the motherboard itself -> The led on the button turned green but nothing else

Unplugged power supply -> shorted green/black and it did power on

changed out power supply w/ old one -> DID post

SO...according to Corsair if it does power on when shorting the green/black then "Your PSUs fan should spin along with the fan you have connected to it. If this is the case, your PSU may not be receiving the power on signal from your motherboard and you should consider other causes of the problem you’re having." HOWEVER, why did my other PSU power on when I plugged it to the mobo and hit the power button???

UPDATE: Well, talked to Corsair support that they said to RMA it. So then the next day when I get the RMA # I call to get an "advanced replacement", they agree and put a hold on my cc. Well 3 days later an no tracking number so I called in and they said it won't be delivered till the 25! (7 days later!) So not only am I out about $13 to ship their defective part back put they do me the favor of sending the replacement part via the slowest method they could [/rant]

Not happy about this, I should have RMA'd through Newegg or just bought from a better PSU company. If that new BF3 trailer that came out today wasn't so freakin badass I would be pissed right now

possibly a short? Ideally you would want to test it outside the case, preferably ontop of your motherboard box insulated by the anti-static bag the Motherboard came in. See if it works with nothing surrounding it to cause something to short, start by putting in the very basic hardware, and slowly add components until you find the problem.

NO to the anti-static bag. Anti-static bag's DO NOT work that way. The purpose of an anti-static bag is for components inside to be resistant to shocks/electrical charges by lining the bag with a conductive material to keep it on the outside of the bag. Therefore any static is kept/gathered on the outside of the bag, meaning they're not safe to place components on. It's very dangerous when having an actual electrical device running on it, especially a PSU, you could potentially have a giant shock mat that could not only hurt the device, but you or other materials. Set components on or use components on cardboard or wood.

Inside = anti-static bag
Outside = static bag
