HP AIO 1200r

I have a HP AIO1200R NAS. The power button on  the front bezzel has broken and I am trying to power the device up by shorting the power pins on the system board. HP's website does not have any detailed schematics showing the pin out, so I do not know which ones to short out. I Could probably do trial and error, but I do not want to smoke anything either. Anyone have any schematics or advice on where to find some?

Yea, shorting the pins probably is not the best thing to try... on newer equipment anyway! Those boxes are still expensive. I'll have a look around our shop tomorrow, if we don't have the exact one for me to look at, I'm sure we have something close, as it is similar to other models.

From your power button, you should have a little cable that connected to the main board by a small connector. If you take out the connector, you should see there are two pins on the board. All you have to do is connect the two pin to by pass the power button.

if you have a jumper(just like the one on the back of IDE cd to set primary and slave...), use that jumper to connect the two pins while unplug the power connector, it should do the work.

HP also recommended the same solution. The power switch actually sits on a separate circuit board that has some status LED's and a reset button. I tried to jumper the wires that come off of the power switch, but that did nothing. I assume there is some sort of a check that the MOBO does with the power circuit board, not allowing a short across the power pins. I got the replacement part yesterday, and the machine is up and running. Thanks for your help!
