Build is:

AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz
Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W
Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 16MB Cache 7200RPM

This is what I see when I powered up by shorting.

All fans run fine, APU fan turn on and I get this screen.

You can jump it every time and there shouldn't be any damage as long as you don't touch the mobo itself. If you want the power button to work your best option is probably to just take it to a repair shop. I have the same issue and that's what I'm gonna do
