Thread: 486 with bizarre power supply plug!!

  1. #1

    Default 486 with bizarre power supply plug!!

    Hi,
    I just got my 486, but the original power supply is stone dead. I was planning on replacing it anyway, no no problem I thought. Issue is the plug on the motherboard appears to be proprietary, and Google brings up very little.C5AD4850-5F1F-4E21-BBD9-72366CD1C1AA.jpgC5AD4850-5F1F-4E21-BBD9-72366CD1C1AA.jpg
    Any ideas what the hell this thing is, and can it be replaced?

    Thanks!

    New one on me. Probably an industrial application. Is there any ID info on the board. Also, a shot of the P/S would be helpful

    How did you determine that the PSU is dead?

    Looks very similar to one of the Molex 3x4 plugs. You might search their catalog, since you've got unit and can measure things.

    I could if you think it would help, but it just looks like a bog standard PSU apart from the weird power plug.

    I'd say add more pictures of the board, as well as the PSU and the connector. Can't hurt.

    The PSU fan doesn't spin. No lights on machine. Switching PSU fuse made absolutely no difference. Also no sound whatsoever from the PSU.

    I've tried searching. So far can't find a thing!!

    Ok. Here are some images of the power supply. The quality isn't the greatest as the iPhone 5S's camera struggles with low light & artificial light!!
