Tried to power it up
card cage and Io card installed - nothing else. Back plate on, front plate switch on
hit the power switch - light came on - nothing else. No display, hum from display of any kind of noise.
Hit power button again and it would not turn off (watched a video of a guy doing a smoke test on lisa - i copied what he did, just IO card.. BUT... his machine did turn off when he hit the power switch a second time.
pulled the plug. Tried again. Same, light on, wouldnt turn off on second hit
Tried a third time. Tripped the house fuse. No smoke, no bang, no noise of any kind.
Took it apart and no damage of any kind, that I can see.
took PSU apart - looks the exact same as it did yesterday - nothing went bang, no smoke, no burning smell..... zip
Have PSU circuit board out on table. Will recap it.
Discharging......... will 240 volt bulb across the main big caps be OK ?........ im frightened to go near it - took it out by holding the edges!
been looking for a capacitor kit ..... no joy.
I count 7 rectangular foil caps and 8 radial caps (including the 2 big ones)
Replace them all?
if anyone knows anyone doing a kit for this.. please let me know
oh the joys of it!!
