Re: Tek 7603 Followed Me Home

If it helps, I had a 7603 fault due to one of those reservoir caps failingtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
and, when I got round to checking them, most of the caps on that rectifier
board were on their way out, so I changed them all.
That doesn't mean yours will be, of course, and I'm not generally an
advocate of "re-capping" devices en-masse, but my recollection is that it
was not that easy to get to the board and change the caps either, so it
might be a false economy to change just one or two.
Beware that several of those caps have multiple can connections to the
board and, on some, I think they are used as "jumpers" to connect traces
across the board. If replacing with caps of a different form factor, which
will probably be almost inevitable, you might need to insert jumpers
across some of the can connections. Apologies if I'm delivering lessons in
