> What's wrong with your power supply (and which supply is it)?
The supply was returned today by UPS, hooray. Per the
invoice enclosed they replaced the bridge rectifier and
the fuse, which, of course was blown when I returned it.
The fuse constantly would blow. PS is the 962 running
my Omni VI+.
The original fault probably occurred when I turned the Omni
on one afternoon, and nothing happened, at least so I
thought. So I turned it off, and tried again, that is the Omni
VI+ didn't respond. Found the PS light/operation had failed.
I then discovered that the push-to-talk switch on the TT
mike base had somehow been locked "on"; maybe that
is what caused the failure. Don't know. I tried replacing the
fuse a couple of times, and it would blow every time the
PS was turned on, whether the Omni was turned on or not.
Cost of the parts: $6.00; Labor, $37.50; shipping back
to Kauai, $44.75, which is about what it cost for me to
send it to Tennessee couple of weeks ago. So total
repair cost to me, about $130. A new supply shipped
out here would be $275 plus the $45 shipping again.
It's only money, right?
