tds-420a recapping (smell on startup)


chmax
 

hi,
When I turn on the 420a, it give out -for just 30secs- a strong smell of rubber/car tire that disappear fast (no errors reported though); I think the caps are in need of a swap.
Does anybody out there have a list to all the caps needed for all the tds420a boards (power supply, acquisition, etc)? I'd rather take the 420 apart once I have the needed caps instead of having to dismantle it and leave the pieces around until the components gets ordered and arrive.
many thanks in advance
Massimo
