Speaking of, can these drives be repaired if they're out of alignment or have other issues? Mine has a broken eject gear but it also does not read disks even after cleaning and lube. Wondering if it's just cheaper to replace it.
Do the Astec PSUs found in IIcx/ci/vx/Q700s have one of those notorious Rifa safety capacitors in them? I left one of these plugged in for about 10 minutes before there was a *POP* noise, followed by a loud whine and smoke rising from the machine. I assume these contain one of these caps but I'm a bit apprehensive about opening a failed PSU to see what went wrong. How long should I let it sit before it's safe to poke around inside?
