can a 550-153w be turned on without the front facia on?

does not power up.  missing front cover. There is a sensor above the switch, will that keep it from starting up?

Whenever I've worked oh HP tower PCs, as long as I have kept the cables connecting the front USB and audio ports connected, I've never had a problem with the PC turning on with the facia removed.  But, I've also not seen a tower PC with any kind of sensor that you mention.  All I've seen in that location is an LED that shows when the PC is running.

Thanks,  Helping out a  friend. I already swapped out his power supply with  mine from a working computer and no go. He said it was running. On with the process of elimination . Thanks again.
