Help or advice needed

Postby Ausrock » Tue Nov 08, 2016 10:46 am

Cutting a long story short........I powered up my Fostex D160 recorder for the first time in a couple of years and nothing happened, no lights, no display......nuttin. First thought was the power supply so I opened it up and found four diodes (bridge rectifier) and the pcb under them scorched as per photo. A quick check seemed to indicate that the diodes are all functioning OK and I still have to check for output voltages, etc., but I'd like peoples thoughts on the scorching issue. Diodes are 1A 200V.

Hi Peter,

No mate, I've owned it since brand new. It hasn't had excessive use and up until now had been rock solid, I had been able to synch it to my R2R, blah, blah and it had never let me down.

Since posting here, I've also duplicated this on the Group DIY forum seeking comments.......just waiting for responses.
