Potential 24 Pin Connector Issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, but I figured it made the most sense.

I am running a Silverstone ST65F-G with the PP05 short cable kit. I ran into issues with my PC not having power (press power button and nothing happens), and, long story short, have been able to identify what I believe is a faulty pin. I found that if I wiggled my 24 pin connector, the power light on my motherboard would turn on and off. I have also tried the original 24 pin cable (the long one that came with PSU) and it did not have any issues.



I looked at the connector and saw one pin that didn't look like the others, and I am assuming it is the pin causing my power issues. Since I have no experience with cabling and connectors, can someone please give me their opinion on the condition of the pin circled in red?

Assuming that pin is faulty, what is the best way to go about fixing it?

Thanks for your help!

That's some kind of horrible mutant pin smile.gif

Why not email Silverstone and ask if the PP05 short cable kit is supposed to look like that.

That's Pin 16-Power On (Green). Maybe it was damaged during a jump start procedure. Notice how the socket seems to have been split down the middle so that it can no longer grip and connect with the pin it is supposed to hold. You might try pushing a couple of slivers of wire insulation down either side of the socket. As long as you don't make the socket too narrow and keep it centred that should do the trick.

Get a thin paper clip and push it down on either side of the pin and put pressure toward the center and then repeat in ten other side of the pin. You are attempting to bend the 2 halves back toward each other. Oddly enough I spread all my atx pins open a little so they aren't so hard to remove once plugged in.

Read #142 before thinking about opening up the pins.

That whole connector, housings and pins, looks a mess and poor quality. I'd want the whole lot replacing.
