    Smile Opus 90W Problem: No led flash, doesn't power up

    One week ago I built my CarPC in my super Fiat Panda.
    It was working right for one week, but last friday I pull out the jumper from the OPUS 90W for standby power because I don't like the standby power.

    But now the powersupply doesnt work any more

    Normally I saw the led blinking one time in 2.5 seconds, but now it doesnt flash anymore and the system doesn't power up . The fuse should be OK.

    Anyone any suggestion?

    How cold is it where you are? There's a problem with the OPUS 90watt not surviving in cold temperatures.

    Have you tried unplugging the power for 30-60 seconds, then plugging it back in?

    This afternoon it was about 2 degrees Celcius above zero, but by night af few degrees below zero.

    I have tried already to pull of the power for a few hours and pull out the 10A fuse, I have had the PC in home at about 20 C and afterwards back in the car, but the OK led doesnt give any signal, nothing.

    You said the fuse should be good. Have you actually checked it?

    Zero is good. How is the power lead hooked up? Is it coming straight from the battery or being tied off of another circuit? Since you have no lights at all the first thing is check to see if you have 12V coming into the Opus. Could be another fuse if you're tied to the power for something else.

    In your first post you mentioned that it was working and then you removed a jumper for the standby power. Have you tried replacing it? I ask because I don't see any other mention of it.
