Centurion Power Supply Question

Recommended Posts

I got the same psu from the same company , but have been unable to make it work on either my 1040stf or my 1040ste. Both machines work fine with the oem psu’s. But not with this one, I really want both to get new psu’s but now I’m not so sure about this one?!

 

Anyone see something that I have done wrong here? Hope there it’s me and not the psu 😅B0CCE42E-ABE5-4404-BB26-463C395CE638.thumb.jpeg.9a69f70616d867bdeb2c8727414b608a.jpeg82CC274E-6AD4-4B9E-9C55-AC7F1F3CC090.thumb.jpeg.14f5131ef808d2959beb07d5d01a5172.jpeg881E6107-9E03-4771-BDFD-40DE6C8E9150.thumb.jpeg.30c0d5c4783843af19ab78e8ce15c3e2.jpeg

That looks correct according to this thread and the official documentation.  Did you ever get it working?

Joelolzen : It's not you.

 

My STe would pause ( not turn on right away ) when I turned it on. The computer would run, then shut down after a while.

 

It shut down in the middle of Sea of Color Demo, and also when playing some mods with Siruis player.

 

I put the re-capped original back in.

 

Maybe the the SP34 base / switch I used was faulty? I rigged mine just like yours..

 

I'm friggon grateful it didn't fry my machine..

Installed mine tonight, everything seems to work ok.  We'll see how it holds up!

I've had a Centurion ST PS on the shelf for a bit.  Popped it in yesterday without issue, seems to be working fine.

 

Certainly is much cooler then the stock one.

I gave up, bought a “meanwell” psu off of eBay and it works fine. Both my st and ste works fine with the oem psu(and the meanwell) but neither of them with the centuriontech one , my intentions was to retire the oem psu, of old age, simply to be safe .

Gotcha.  Which MeanWell did you end up using, and were you able to mount it right to the plate?

I got this One off of eBay

 

Mean Well RD-50A-VP Enclosed Switching AC-to-DC Power Supply, Dual Output, 5V-12

 

Works like a charm , tested extensively!

 

fits quite nicely in there on the plate with two screws on the underside.

 

Forgive me for being lazy with wiring colors 😉
