8200 - 512 Error

HP Recommended
8200 Elite SSF
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Has anyone else run across this problem? I have a few units that are giving me a 512 rear fan error. I have looked up multiple solutions provided by the HP manual and still I am having trouble with this. I have tried replacing the PSU, CPU Fan and the front panel assembly with other good working hardware with no luck. Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Dear Customer,

 

Have you tried this as posted previosly:

 

Solution

Although the HP Compaq 8200 or 8300 Elite Small Form Factor computer has no rear chassis fan installed, this error message might arise if the front panel cable assembly was damaged after a system repair attempt.

In a HP Compaq 8200 or 8300 Elite Small Form Factor computer, Pin10 on the front panel cable connector is used to tell the system BIOS, that the chassis is a Desktop model, not a Microtower model. This is necessary because the system board is also used in the HP Compaq 8200 or 8300 Elite Microtower computer, which has a rear chassis fan installed. Pin10 is not connected there.

If the cable on Pin10 of the connector in a HP Compaq 8200 or 8300 Elite Small Form Factor computer was damaged accidently and therefore has no connection to the system board, the BIOS assumes that it is a Microtower model and therefore checks for a rear chassis fan.

 

You need a new front panel cable assembly to fix the issue.

Spare part # 636926-001 (Front I/O cable assembly - With power on/off switch).
