Dropped screw in powersupply

It could be under de pcb of the Psu

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So bought a brand new 750w titanium seasonic prime psu and dropped a screw in it when tightening up the last screw tried shaking it out but didn't work but now I can't hear a rattle and when I open it up I can't see it where do yous think it is?

Edit: Ok so I have lifted up the whole pcb and checked under it and couldnt find the screw have searched everywhere for about 5hrs and still nothing anyone have any ideas where it could be like in tricky spots or if I plug it in with psu tester included instead of my pc and it goes boom will it just trip the short circuit switch or will it 1.catch on fire 2. Electrocute me or will it blow up because worst thing I'd rather it blow up and have to buy a new one rather than put my safety at risk.

Thank you.

I'd recommend you take it to a computer repair store if you are afraid of fixing a PSU, especially since it is a high-voltage component.

Call seasonic first. Open it up will void your warranty. Maybe they can remove it for you under warranty

leave it for 15 minutes unplugged cuz there are around 400v dc capacitors that can hold charge for 15-30 minutes

Ok so I can't find it so assuming it's under the pcb if I was to turn on the psu would it blow up or short out?
