iici astec psu just died yesterday

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I powered on the iici for about a minute and it never wanted to turn on again. I removed everything and I have nearly finished recapping the board and cache card and washed them, just have to order the axial caps.

I shorted pin 9 and 10 (5v trickle and pfw) on the psu and it turns off immediately after shorting on, not even a second, it makes a click sound for on and then click for off. When pins are constantly shorting, PSU oscillates apparently.

I wouldn't trust any of those 25+ year old capacitors... I'd recap that PSU first and then if it still doesn't work, we'll have to troubleshoot.

I know nothing about IIcis and their power supplies. But I do know that every LC PSU should to be recapped by now and since the IIcis are more or less contemporaneous with the LCs, that's why I think caps are the culprit here. Caps are a common failure on any old PSU anyway....

the other thing that is becoming a common failure point are the opto-isolators. 

If its not the caps, then it could be that. But without troubleshooting its really hard to tell.

Just an anecdotal observation of mine; the GE PSU for the IIcx/ci seems to be more reliable. Out of my sample size of 2, the Astec that came with my IIcx is dead, while the GE that came in my IIci works great even under heavy load with a fast disk and Radius Rocket.

Are the designs of the Astec and GE power supplies significantly different?

It's the caps almost certainly. They tend to fall short circuit on the 5V rail and sometimes even leak. My IIcx Astec had leaky and dead shorted caps.

I was just about to ask if anyone had a list of caps for the Astec PSU's -- The PSU in my IIci still works, but might as well re-cap it.

I'll find the part numbers at Mouser and add to this post.

Good luck, recapped a TDK LC PSU just then, it was 100% lifeless before, now it works fine. When I recap my IIci, hopefully it will work again, it was for the 5 seconds I first powered it on.

My IIci supply does the same thing, even with all the new caps (expect for the two largest ones, they were too expensive). It makes the MB light blink twice and nothing more. Should I follow this guide? http://www.shobaffum.com/iici/trickle.pdf

 

Logic board fully recapped, cache card not installed or recapped until my chisel tip for SM soldering arrives.

You might want to also have a look at that:

C10, C12, C13 leak heavily onto the UE13/UD13 area. Check if those logic ICs are still good. They tend to fail due to cap goo which results in all kinds of weird power issues, like the machine won’t power on or off, won’t stay on, etc.
