Flash of white light

Hi there!

 

Recently put together a new build with a Corsair 850HX but - and this has happened a total of three times now - whenever I switch the PSU on from the back from O to I, there is a flash of white light coming from inside it somewhere for just a brief instance.

 

Is this a normal feature of the product? Or is there some hidden damage I need to be concerned with?

Sounds like an arc and I would be very concerned. Try not to use that PSU because it is a shock hazard. It may also run excess power through your system so use at your own risk.

NOTE: I am not a corsair engineer but an arc is never good and is always a shock hazard. The excess power bit may not be true, but as someone quite familiar with electrical work, it is likely.
