[TenTec] Dead TT 280 PS

Well. Wiggling is not permanent.  It seems as though sometimes I measure 
the 120V on the 2 white wires and sometimes not.  Unless someone has a 
better suggestion, I plan to solder a bridge to  the white wires on the 
terminal strip inside the case.  Then I can proceed to chase the voltage 
through the xformer and onto the voltage control board.  That terminal 
strip is pretty gnarly and not that I don't trust it, but.....

BTW, this is the power supply for my backup rig.  I can power the Omni 
on my existing supply that drives the Jupiter.  It would be nice to have 
a supply for the Omni when needed, and I have the 280.  Might as well 
make it work.
