Question PSU problem (brand new unit)

I have a Sunbeam 680w psu model# psu-com680-bk-us.My first ? is there a 115v/230v switch on this unit? If so where is it? Second if there isn't a switch can anyone tell me if they have any problems with this unit. My problem is the psu won't power up. I have tried putting a tester on it and it still won't fire up with the tester. Again this is a brand new unit! I am wondering if I have a bad one, or is there something simple I can try first. Oh and I have tested the power cord too it has 115v coming out of it. So I know that is good. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Default Re: PSU problem (brand new unit)

Ok I got it figured out! I can't believe it! It was a loose 115v power wire! I swear I tried it b4 and nothing happened! but I tried it again and guess what it work fine now. I do have to say though it still seems like the power wire still fits pretty loose, I think other power supplies that I have had weren't that loose! So I wondering how I could take up the slack so that it is a tighter fit! Dk!
