Did he know about the power controller that tells the PSU when to power on and off?

Then those 3 digit numbers mean a next reply can say what is failed, how to fix it the first time, and sometimes why and what actually failed.

Two choices. Just start replacing good parts until something works. (Most people do shotgunning.) Or use a meter to fix it faster, with less money, and also learn from the experience. Your choice.
