Power supply turns on, but doesn't stay on
I combined all the 12vdc lines and ground lines. I shorted the green wire to ground, but when I switch the power supply on, it goes into standby after a few seconds. What can I do to keep it on indefinitely?
The power supply shuts down if it doesn't receive a power good signal within about 3 secs. You need to short "Power OK", pin 8 on the diagram to a +5v line to keep the P/S operating.
edit: couple years later...
for the sake of accuracy....the motherboard receives the PG signal from the PS. Disregard this post.
I have an OCZ modstream, by connecting the PS_ON to a gnd pin the power supply starts up fine but there is only 11volts on the 12v line. I checked to see if my multimeter was reading properly by connecting up the 20pin atx connector to a motherboard and the 12v line reads 12v as it should.
any ideas on wat could be causing this or how to fix it?
Load the power supply.
There was over 5A being drawn on the 12v rail and it stil remains 1volt down. Do i have to load up every rail?
Sometimes yes, depends on the rail split though.
u can also cut the ps on and solder it to the mobo ps on and it will turn on when the power button is pressed
