Strange behavior.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First time i turned on the surge protector and i turned on the psu.. nothing.. was puzzled.

So i switched it off and switched it back on. Still nothing. Checked the outlet and i realize i probably wasn't paying attention if i was turning it on BUT i just did switched it on earlier. Besides i had my pj's on and my pants are very cotton static.

However.. i pulled my bed away and look STRAIGHT at the power surge and it was lit. So i grounded myself on the case and then turned the psu on and i can see the boot light on the motherboard.

What gives? PSU acting up on me or did i had a minor electrical charge on the surge or maybe i didn't pay attention and turned it off not knowing?

This is a used Corsair 650 watt i bought off a member here on forums for 40 bucks.

Oh i cannot even rma it anyways cuz the sticker is not on there anymore.

Would love a second take on what you think i did encountered or did you experience the same thing i had?

Could i had turned it off cuz i didn't look at the surge in the start? Or could it be something else? What you think?

Wish i can hire Sherlock Holmes for the job! Bloody hell!

Sounds like one of those freak failures. Chalk it up to static electricity, I guess, and get another PSU? Newegg has a buttload of sales on now, I think.

Get a volt meter and check the link for the pin out on the PS_ON# pin.
1. Disconnect all power to devices and MB
2. Jump the PS_ON# to any COM pin and that should start the PS.
If it does not start the fan the PS is likely bad.
If the fan does start, test all the 3.3v, 5v, and 12v. to COM for a voltage reading.
The voltages should not exceed +/- 5%

I think it was static.. it works fine ever since now.. day 2... i'd chalk it up as static or i didn't pay attention.. then again i'm gonna go ahead and get a very BRAND new Corsair psu next weekend. I need a warranty since the one i got off here on forums has no warranty intact. Thanks everyone and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Do not drink and drive!
