1029a PSU

One of my 1029a monitors died this morning. It started up OK and the power light went out while playing music (it was monitoring the RH channel so the LH channel kept playing and I didn't notice right away). :cry:

I tried changing the power cable but it doesn't work with a cable powering something else and the cable it had works with something else so I'm confident there is a fault in the power supply of the unit. I did not detect any smoke or burning smell coming from it.

The monitor is over 10 years old, so I'm reluctant to send it off for repair. Is the PSU accessible for service/repair? Is there a schematic available? As I have a working unit to compare it to, it makes sense to try a repair myself. I have access to a meter and a soldering iron.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers
Tim

I just did another search of this forum and found an incorrectly titled thread that may be very useful:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=308&p=1235&hilit=1029a#p1235

Will open mine up later for a look.

Cheers
