===== Checking for 12V: ===== The connector that outputs 12V is the large plug on the bottom of the power supply that plugs into the two large metal blades that come off the console's main board. The power supply will not activate its 12V supply unless it receives a signal to do so. This signal normally comes from the console's main board, but we can tell the power supply to turn on by bridging the 'ACDC_STBY' pin of the connector to the 'ACIN_DET' pin (there should be 5V present on this pin). You can avoid accidentally shorting pins by plugging the wire assembly into the power supply, and bridging pins at the plug instead of the directly at the connector's exposed pins. Bridge the appropriate 2 pins at the plug with a small wire, or fine point tweezers, and probe the 12V connector to see if outputs about 12V.
