DD12BG Power Supply Problem
I have a 10+ year old DD12 (Model DD12BG) that seems to have developed a power supply problem. The unit has no output, and the logo light is out. I have checked for power to the unit, etc and all is normal.
The manufacture date on the label is Oct 24, 2003. Since the unit has been powered on 24/7 for most of its life, I suspect something in the power supply has died.
I am a experienced design/systems engineer with more than 50 years experience, and would be comfortable obtaining any needed discrete parts, trouble shooting and repairing the unit.
I have tried to remove the electronics package by removing the 12 screws around the panel, but it is still firmly anchored in place. Is there a hidden screw or two that is still holding it?
I really love the unit, and my engineering background gives me the insight to fully appreciate the elegance of the Velodyne servo drive solution for low distortion bass.
Any suggestions or help from anyone who has been down this road before would be appreciated.
