ive had a few PSUs that dont stay on, can i fix them?
ive been wondering, since its not capacitors (there are 2 small ones that are usually failed, replacing them does not fix it) could it be the mosfets?
im wondering because ive had a lot of these (at least 10) from computers and all but one had the same symptoms, the one that didnt had a chip blow up on it. but it seems like a waste to take just the fans, connectors and switch if it has one and dispose of the rest, i want to be able to reuse as much of the PSU as possible, even the main transformer and the two smaller transformers if possible.
any ideas on what i can reuse (literally anything i can reuse) or how i can fix them?
