Rx power supply mounting
« on: November 21, 2016, 11:05:34 pm »
Can anyone with a Megatouch Rx chime in?  I got an Rx in for repairs.  A real hack job on the power supply, lots of splicing going on and bare wires. Surprised it hasn't caught on fire.  I can figure this out on my own, but I can't figure out how to mount the power supply inside the case.  The PSU is literally just sitting next to the motherboard and isn't mounted to anything.  I'm assuming I'm missing some kind of mounting bracket also, but I can't seem to figure out where the PSU would go.

Appreciate the help in advance - thanks.

yeah, the original power supply has a weird molex type connector that supplies power to some fans and junk in there. it's quite common to hack them off and scab them onto a new supply since it's non-standard.

the power supply should have a bracket that holds it down, yes. it's not required... some double sided tape under it could keep things in place sufficiently.

I can take a pic of the bracket when i get home if you like... I have a couple for parts in my basement right now. you might be able to cobble something up to work.

this literally screws down on the mount by the corner of the motherboard.

the tab on the left hooks under a receptacle on the backside of the power supply "tray"?



EDIT: clarified the location of the mounting.
