Challenging 2465 PS repair


satbeginner
 

Hi all,

I bought a For Parts or Repair 2465 PS on eBay.
My idea was (and still is!) to make it work again so I would have a spare for one of my 246x scopes.

It had parts missing, but in general it looked OK.

So I added the missing parts, hooked it up to my dummy load and powered it up......

Wrong idea, now it seems :-)

Some people see Magic Smoke?? Not me, I saw actual flames!!!

I still want this to be repaired, but I do acknowledge it might take some time :-)

To be continued,

Leo
