ive had a few PSUs that dont stay on, can i fix them? Answered
ive had a fair number of Antec 350W psus that will attempt to turn on, but dont. its almost as if they dont have the capacity to do it or something.
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?
