So my trusty Velocity started acting funny a couple months ago. The right side player stopped powering on and then the whole unit stopped powering on. I have used these seldomly since i purchased them back in 2003 (Manufacturer's date is 1/03) so they weren't abused.
I opened up the cover and to my astonishment I find that 2 of the capacitors on the power supply exploded and left this papery rusty residue on the inside of the case. (see pictures)
My commons sense thinks that I can just replace the power supply and it should work. Ordered a new one from Ernie, swapped them and NOTHING. ugh. I also switched fuses but that didn't work either.
So now I am sitting here with a piece of equipment i spent $1000 for and have no clue how to fix it. I guess I should just send it off to get repaired but it is out of warranty and I don't want to spend a ton of money when I could buy a newer model for cheaper. Any advice on how I can get this up and running?
