    No... It isn't defective. You need to create a single to trigger the PSU to turn on. Typically, this comes from the motherboard but your can use a paperclip to turn on the PSU for testing.

    1) Get a paper clip and straighten it to a U shape.

    2) Plug one end into the "green-wire slot"

    3) Plug the other end into the "black-wire slot"

    4) Power supply kicks on :)
