Very inconsistent jump start-ability on RM1000

Posted (edited)

I was trying to test some wires I made in addition to filling a loop with my old Corsair RM1000 (was just fine last winter when it was still in my system), and the thing doesnt seem to want to start on a consistent basis. It works fine when in a system, but using the old jumper method, it only starts seldomly.

 

A. There is a load on it, ive got a couple of fans running on it

 

B. It does the same thing regardless of whether i jump the pins at the end of the 24pin or at the modular interface directly on the psu

 

C. The jumper is making proper electrical contact

 

D. The wires I made are fine and make proper electrical connection (power cable for CCFL inverter, works just fine when the thing does manage to turn on, plus the issues occur regardless of whether or not i plug my diy stuff in)

 

1. Sometimes it will start for less than a second (system fans actually spin up), then immediately turn off

 

2. If it does number 1, it will go into a state where if i turn it on, i can hear the relay clicking, but the system fans dont spin and nothing gets power

 

3. Sometimes it just does nothing, no click, no response, etc.

 

4. Sometimes it will start up just fine, and stay on for as long as i want it to. In this state, i can turn it off, come back a while later, and it will still start just fine. But once i unplug the main AC wall cable, its anyone's guess how it will behave the next time i plug it in.

 

5. I seem to recall noticing this issue a while back with this very PSU, but didnt bother posting on it, but now i'm just curious.

 

Im stumped, any clues?

What are you using to jump the PSU?

Ive been making modular cables for a while now so i just took 2 atx power supply pins, crimped them at either ends of a 18awg lead, and plugged them in. Much more secure than the paperclip so thats not the issue.

Does it have extra wires in the 24 pin connector? Some power supplies have sense wires which read the voltage on a particular wire so it can be better controlled by the power supply. Maybe since they're not connected, the power supply assumes something is wrong and shuts down?

Nope, just 24 pins start to finish. It seems if I unplug the PSU, flick the switch a few times, then plug it back in, theres a much better chance of it actually starting up, almost as if some capacitor needs to drain and recharge properly.
