PSU not working, SOME TIMES

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
HI

I have been having this problem for the last 6 month and i honestly don't know what to do. I live in Israel and i bought my SeaSonic X650 Gold from store called KSP. The problem that I'm dealing is the following: When I go to start up my PC I click the power button nothing happens, the LED on my motherboard however is glowing that means there is power, now the so called trick I use to get the PSU to work is to press the power switch on the back of the PSU between 0 and 1 very fast and then my PC powers on, it dose not always work and some time the fans in my system ramp up for 2 seconds and nothing happens so i have to do the trick countless times to work. I tried many things to diagnose the problems, I put the PSU in other system and i got the same problem, checked the 12v 3.3 v and 5v and they are all ok, so that meant that the PSU is culprit, so I went to the store to try to see whats the matter after having the PSU for 2.5 years and I still have 6 month of warranty on it, they tested it and said that it worked fine and that the problem is something else, so next time i brought the whole PC to them, they hooked it up powered it on and it worked flawlessly and that is were i went to full shock. I went pack to home hocked it up again and it worked fine for week and the issue came back again, SO at this point I done know what to do so can you please HELP ME. Thanks

Well there's obviously a fault with the PSU, why don't you record what it's doing and then send it to them for proof that it's actually faulty and if they have a decent warranty policy they should replace it for you.

I had the psu rmaed about three times. Definately not it as its a brand new unit each time w a new s/n. but it could be a batch or manufacturing problem. Who knows? So far im trying my mobo as my psu has normal voltages with the all the rails

I don't think that well work as I'm pretty sure that they well say its something else but I might try it as last resort  

 

Im having the same problem too. Using a seasonic x1050w as well so im betting it could be my mobo. Try to run a memtest if possible.

 

As I stated above I put it in other system and got the same problem, I was on LGA 775 Platform and went to haswell and got the same thing.

 Ah i see. I havent tested mine on another system. I also have to flip the psu to the | or O as fast as i can to get it to turn on each time after shutdown.
