Anybody here ever had a problem where the +12 lead is reading higher then it should? I replaced one of the swollen capacitors to see if that helped but it didn't. All of the other output power leads are in spec(-12v,5v,-5v). Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks,

Matt

Pics of the power supply.

The two pics that I posted of the power supply are before I replaced the swollen capacitor. The bad capacitor is most noticeable in the second picture.

I replaced all capacitors but I still had a problem with excessive voltage. I replaced the board with a modern version and all is good.
