MikeVonDoom: the subject should be: How to fail miserably trying to make your own 12 volt power supply!
Steve White: Some friendly advice: For easier soldering, tinning the wires (saturating each one with solder) before you hold them together is recommended. The soldering iron tip should be held parallel against the wires as you connect them for more efficient heat transfer. These things, along with a heat sink (or alligator clip) at the point where the insulation begins will prevent melting insulation and hold the wires in position, allowing you to hold the iron.
Gil “Ging” Samia Catalig: Too much talk.

andycharger: I have a quick question that im sure you will know the answer to! I have cut my wires and twisted together the green wire and a black ground wire so it is always on when i plug it in.When i plug in the mains cable, the fan on the PSU spins up quickly then stops instantly. There is no power getting to the device i have attached. are there any other wires I need to attach together other than the green and a black?
