Bulging caps
#1
I have been honing my soldering skills a lot this year.

I guess it is because of who I work for and that they never replace equipment unless it fails and even then it's like getting water from a stone. I have repaired the power supplies on 5 fiber switches this year. All having the same issue. Considering that the switches cost about $500-$600 new and the replacement caps are a few dollars and about an hour of my time, I think it's a bargain.

Good work! Probably crapicons from China. They aren't worth a crap and they are everywhere. And those multilevel boards suck.
My cheaters had a workout lately. Can't see to do that otherwise anymore. I had to fix my DVR motherboard and the power supply in the 42 I use for a monitor.
I replace with Nichicon (sp?) . Fortunately MCM is a 20 minute drive.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

That's why computer PSUs that advertise Japanese capacitors are in vogue.
In the 1950s, most of the Japanese imports were considered junk.
Today, finding something made in Japan is like finding a diamond.

Typical for that country. Stealing is how they define "innovation". In the case of the capacitors it was a double steal. A scientist steals the formula for electrolyte from his Japanese employer and takes it to China. Then it is stolen again and turns up in Taiwan. Except somewhere along the way someone copied it wrong.

We bought thousands of GX620s. Had to replace a lot of bad power supplies. Although by now most of these computers have been recycled and very few are left in service.

Copied it wrong is a nice way of saying used cheap parts made of cheap material full of lead, etc. Laugh-a-lotLaugh-a-lotLaugh-a-lot

After all, they are electro-leadic capacitors....

Ohm, I couldn't resist. Nor, could I react. I'll have to conduct myself such that I don't impede the flow. So, what's the charge?

Charge is failure to induce well tuned humor. Shocking I say!
