Power supply problem?

by madambaster / May 7, 2007 11:33 AM PDT

I just bought a used DJ mixer (Vestax PMC-06 Pro A) and I fear I made a stupid mistake. When I plugged it in with the power supply that came with it, the unit would not turn on and smoke came out of the back. I would like to know what the problem is and how it can be repaired.

?? You would have to take it to a repair person too see what is going on. Something arched & that can be a few diffent things where it happened & many not be worth fixing, depending what is arching & the damage that happend when it did.

Ive smoked many power supplies before. If you heard any kind of poping noises, then you have blown a capasitor. Maybe the guy before you did. As far as the smoke is concerned, it is most likely unrepariable for the power supply. If the power supply is a small seperate unit, try taking a look up on ebay. Try taking it apart and look for black marks on the bottom of the electrical board or even the system board. Can't always blame the psu. Good luck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
