Re: 465B soft start?

Had same cap blow in my 465 two years ago, they don't last forever. Look up Capacitor Reforming on net, it will explain why aluminum caps go bad. I replaced all the filter caps in power supply section and power supply has been good since then. A Wise Man once told me "Machines are made to be run", "If you don't run them they stop working". The oxide layer that insulates plates in cap breaks down and eventually will short out cap if you don't run equipment.
