AX1200 is dead?

Hi, I have only front panel power button on white led. Is the PSU is dead?

 

-Which one is the green wire on the 24p connector, because they are all black? The paper clip test is supposed to connect the green and either of the two adjacent black ones.

 

-Are my front panel connector correctly in the JFP1, if the PC wouldn't start without pressing the front panel power on? The h.d.d. led is facing to the motherboard on the top left corner, below is the reset sw facing the motherboard, on the right side, the power sw is facing away from the motherboard and below it the power led- and the power led +. Is changing these necessary?

 

-How about, should I do a replacement through Amazon EU S.a.r.l or the Corsair RMA shipment? I don't have all the accessories anymore or the package. This PSU is one week old.

 

-If Corsair doesn't accept a replacement due to this, will they repair the PSU according to warranty?

 

-Must I use the 2x2 power connector along with the 24 pin power connector?

 

-RMA #2491554 .

 

-My motherboard is MSI G41M-P28 and my case is Corsair Graphite 600T White.

the 4/8 pin connector next to the cpu must be plugged in as well. remove the power sw wire from the board header and jump it manually. double check all the case headers that they are on the correct pins.

 

as far as which wire is green google is your friend.

I did the jumper test, it said click on the paper clip and the fan started to rotate repeatedly. On my 24 pin wire, the 20 is empty. Is that normal? Why then is it not rotating, when I connect the 24 pin and the 4 pin? What do you mean, Synthohol, jumping the power sw manually? Is it safe to touch the paper clip as I jump the two pins in JFP1 (front panel)? Maybe I should cover it with electrical tape?

Just insert the paperclip into the pin sockets in the 24 pin connector. They fit nice and snug . This way you do not have to touch the paperclip while performing the test. It also ensures a good connection and may be the reason your fan was jumping if you were just trying to hold it on the ends of the pins.
