NOTE: The two capacitors' Marcello replaced were the problem in his case, there could be other problems with the Fusion PSU. The more information we gather from other people who have repaired their Fusion PSU the better understanding we will have of the power supplies weak area's, what to look for and how to repair or redesign it.

Anyone else have any information on Fusion PSU repair.

If you have an old Fusion PSU that you have replaced and don't need please send it to me so I can look it over and try to find a new source for a compaitable replacement.

Thanks ... Jesse

Hi

Just a quick observation: If you're replacing failed capacitors on switchmode power supplies ensure you replace them with low-ESR (effective series resistance) capacitors with at least the same temperature rating. Using off the shelf parts may lead to early failure.

You can order these from a number of electronic outlets or from specialist mail order stores such as thecapking.com or badcaps.net.

Hopefully these power supplies predate the whole lead-free solder mandate or you'll need a temperature controlled iron too - lead-free solder has a higher melting point that conventional lead/tin.
