Is This Savageable? I think I already know the answer......


#1

I have a call into service for some idea of what happened but here are the remains.

This is what remains of a PCA-2 that worked perfectly fine since 2005. I sold it to a nice fellow. As I decided to sell it I had already committed to buying a second PCA-2 with a HCPS. I sold the 2nd PCA-2. And then sold the HCPS to the fellow that bought my PCA-2. Apparently the case got so hot that he burned and blistered three of his fingers.

The HCPS innards look ok. I will post those next.

Anyone have any idea what happened?

Sorry, this should probably be moved to the problems part of the forum.

Easily moved. :)

The magic blue smoke certainly was let out of this unit.

From the looks of it I would guess someone tried to run this on 230 volts when it was set for 120, but that;'s just a guess. Definitely hosed.

Wow. Full on fire. That must have smelled like hell.

Sorry.
