Help! EX470 appears to be dead

Recommended Posts

Everything else that was plugged into the UPS works just fine including the pc I use media center on, to record TV shows.

 

I plugged the EX470 into a completely different power strip on a different wall outlet and the server does nothing when I press the power button.

 

I'm hoping it is just the the powersupply but it does not smell burnt from outside the case.

 

I just need to get motivated and take the EX470 apart.

 

 

Hang in there brothercannon and let us know.

Fixing the EX 470 got put on the back burner for a while, but I just ordered a replacement power supply. I'll report back when I get it installed.

Today I got my replacement PSU from Overtek, 22 days after I ordered it. Since it came from the UK I suppose that's not too bad. Since I've opened the EX 470 before the install was easy and quick.

 

The new PSU is at least an inch shorter but feels about the same weight as the original. The server booted right up and is making backups of my pc's.

 

What to do with the dead PSU?
