CX600 Turns off by itself/Doesn't turn on


Recommended Posts

I'm having almost the exact same problem as another user posted here some years ago, he said:


I'm having quite a few issues at the moment with my 2 month old CX600 PSU. It occasionally loses power completely, at random intervals (it can happen almost immediately after turning on, or after a few hours).


When it does this, more likely than not I am unable to turn my PC on again without reconnecting cables, or sometimes the power will return for a split second, sometimes not at all.


I'm also having a newly developed issue, which I believe it caused by this, whereby when I shut down my PC, the PSU continues to remain powered on, meaning my fans, disc drive and such are still receiving power long after shutting down. This continues until I forcefully turn off power at the switch.


I'm no techie tbh, but I'm just wondering if maybe my PSU is not enough for my system (though I use NVIDIA GeForce 660 which says 450W is fine)? Also, when I removed the 24 pin cable as a means of trying to reboot, I noticed that one of the pins appeared to be missing, though I don't know if this is just a design.


Is there a fix for this issue? Do I need more W than 600? Do I need to request RMA?


As I said, it's almost the exact same problem, only difference is I think when I shut down my PC, my "PSU continues to remain powered on", not sure tough, just think I would notice....

Also, I'm having this problem for 3 or 4 months, I have this PSU for about 2 years now but I always took care of it as it was my only PSU (it actually is)...

I guess I should add my PC specs are not the same mentioned on the other thread by the other user, but I'm sure my PSU should be enough for my computer, and I'm even more sure there's nothing wrong with anything on my CPU.

If you need any information in order to help me, please ask for it, with if possible, how do I get the information you need, even tough I think I know how to find out anything you need to know about my computer, I may not know how to procede, so... Yeah...


Thanks a lot in advance!
