...
Can you help a (very excited) brother out?

Thanks very much.
John

[EDIT] I AM trying to catch up ... but I'm still about hundred pages behind.

1.  Disconnect PS from the miner.
2.  Make sure the paperclip (bare metal, not painted) is stuck between green & black wires.
3.  Turn on PS.
   A.  If it turns on & fan spins, go to 4.
   B.  If it doesn't, doublecheck the paperclip.  If nothing -> dead PS Cry
4.  Shut off PS, wait 30 secs, plug PS into *one board* of the the miner, try again.
   A.  If OK, repeat 4 with next board.
   B.  If not, unplug board & try next one.
5.  Post on how it goes.
& will talk you through from there Cheesy

Hey,

Thanks for the tip.

Repeat of the same.

On just the PS with the mb cable jumped - I get 1-4 revs of the PS fan, then nothing. It's like something clicks off in the PS as soon as it ramps up.

On the PS with one board attached - I get 1-4 revs of the PS fan, the board fan, and the two case fans, then nothing. Same kind of behaviour, almost like something clicks inside the PS as soon as it begins to ramp up.

Repeat for all boards.

my vote is that the paper clip's in the wrong spot.  Wrong cable maybe?  How about a pic?

He said the fans spin up, then go back off.

If the paper clip was in the wrong place, the fans would not spin at all, as the power supply would be off.

I've seen power supplies that behave exactly as he describes when powered up while attached to nothing.

The fans on the miner require power to spin.

If the power supply is off, i.e., the paper clip is in the wrong place, those fans have no power available to spin them.

Maybe you mean you saw a power supply spin it's OWN fan and shut down?  That would be different, and certainly possible - but that is not the scenario the poster described.

It's the PS.

Unplug everything,  If it's a modular PS, unplug all the cables but the MB/24 pin cable.
1.  Turn on the PS and try sticking in the paper clip again between the green and one of the black wires.  As you stick it in, wiggle it -- see if the PS fan goes on.  I'll be refreshing the page Cheesy

There's only one green wire, and that's the one the paperclip's on.

Never jumped this power supply before, since I bought it specifically for the jupiter, but I HAVE done this on other power supplies ... so I'm confident I'm jumping it correctly.

It's the other stuff that's puzzling to me.

Like, the fans spin up, then nothing. That seems odd.

Anyway, working on the assumption it's a dead PS - off to the local computer store to get a tester on it / buy a new one.

Weird though, that it would be dead out of the box. Still seems much more likely I've boned something.

He would get that if the PS protection kicks in ^ shuts the PS down.  The fan would spin up & stop.  Waiting a few mins will kick the protection out again.

Yep - but it would certainly mean he did not have the paperclip in the wrong place.

It probably is the PS.  Typical behavior if there's a short.  RARELY the PS won't go on without a load, but most modern ones will.  If you have an old HD or CDROM/whatever, plug it into the PS & repeat the steps with the paperclip.

Look on the bright side, it's not your *expensive* stuff hat's broken Cheesy
Edit:  If you have a desktop 'puter, unplug its PS, plug this one into its MB (Just the 24 pin), and hit the "on" button...
Edit2:  If still no dice, check if there's a 120/240 switch near the power cord.  Make sure it's flicked the right way.

If you have a desktop, you can try its PS with the miner, at least one or two boards...  Good luck.

I went ahead and let everything run on 0.97
it has been over 5 hrs
the slowest one (255), has slowly worked it's way up to 260.
the middle one(265) has stayed unchanged.
the fast one(275), is now 280.

***So the 0.97 DOES  Perform better****
.... I apologize for my outburst at 4am
Please forgive Ewik

O'rama...   will do, sry.

So average is 268. Still unhappy?
