Hello, guys! Thank you for spending time reading this. Weird situation here.

I'm doing some tests on this budget PSU. After some days (2-3) turned off, it will turn on normally. If I turned the PC off and imediately tried to turn it on again, it will not. PSU's fan spins not even half a second, it gives the mobo some energy but then it just shutdowns. Then, I need to wait some days for it to work again.

Today, I took it off of the PC and did a paperclip jump: it turned on normally, I checked every single 24-pin connector voltages, everything is fine, within tolerance. I turned it off and the same still happens, it won't turn on again (I kept the switch on and tested it, all voltages are 0, except standby on 5V). As I have to wait some time to use/test it, I was thinking it could be something related to the capacitors (if they're charged, I can't use it), but my knowledge range goes until there, ahaha... any suggestions?
