The power supply in my Apple II Europlus has just gone. With a pop, whisp of smoke and that unmistakable smell I suspect one of the capacitors have blown.
I've taken it out of the Apple but have not gone any further with disassembling it.
I know there can be hight voltages stored in some the caps but it should be fairly easy to fix - I just wanted to make a post here to check that I was doing the right thing.
What I've read online so far suggests that C7 is usually the one to go.
As well as replacing the blown cap, should I do anything about the others even if they show no sign of decay?
Also, does anyone have tips/previous experience of doing this sort of thing? How did you find it?
The power supply is one made by Astec.
