ML350 G5 Power Issue

Hello Everyone,

I have a problem with a ML350 server. It has two power supplies and both of them dont light up at all when plugged in.

Surely they both havent died at the same time? Or is something else the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, and the server doesn't start?

It could also be whatever the power supplies connect to.
UPS, direct power, sockets, cables.

Could also be something internal. Read the service & maintenance guide, maybe there is a power supply backplane in the server that both PSUs connect to. Usually there's not much intelligence on it but maybe it's fried..

Yes the server has no lights at all and wont start.

The power for the server is fine as I can power another server off the same gear.

 

From what I have read, shouldnt the power supplies show a Red light on the back if the Backplane is stuffed?

When PSUs blow there's usually a smell coming off them.

Maybe that or a visual inspection of the PSUs might help.
