Low voltage on P500


#1

Hi,

Was curious if someone could lend me a hand with this issue: just checked the voltage on regulated outlets in P500 and it comes up around 106 vs 123 on the filtered outs. From reading the forums I understand that this may be related to capacitors drying up in the older units. Would someone kindly point me in the direction of schematics or specific caps that would need to be replaced? I am comfortable doing it myself, just need some basic guidance on which ones and the types.

Thanks!

Upon opening the unit, I was able to easily locate the caps and they are indeed leaking/popped. I will replace them with similar or better type caps.

Yes, good find. It’s the power supply capacitors.
