My Indy's PSU is as good as dead:

130

I suppose I shouldn't have expected much; the PSU in my Indy currently is not an Indy PSU at all; it's a modified Dell SFF PSU to work with the Indy... sort of. As seen in the above image, it doesn't really work all that well. This is how I received the machine; I somewhat expected for it to work "well enough," but aside from booting to PROM properly, that's all it's really able to do. Looking for a working Indy PSU; don't necessarily care if it's Nidec or Sony, but Sony preferred.

I apologize, I don't have any power supplies I can sell immediately (although I do have a batch of Indys I will probably list whenever I get a few free hours), but just curious: have you tried measuring the power rails with a multimeter, while it is under operation? I am curious what the power failure warnings are about. Also possible that the Pgood signal is not being asserted on the aux connector?

No worries, I have some time to think about what I am going to be doing with the Indy moving forward. I'll be moving back to university in two weeks at this point, so this isn't a priority to me. Anyway, I can look into measuring the power rails & get back to you on that. I'm kind of a complete noob in regards to power supplies; I wouldn't really know what to look for, especially not in this scenario where the PSU is a bit of a hack job.
