[Video] Recapping a Falcon PSU

Post by Badwolf »

I'm hoping to to put together some hardware videos attempting to restore a Falcon motherboard over the next few months.

As a trial for the techniques, I've made a video documenting replacing the aged electrolytic capacitors on my original Falcon's PSU. Let me know if the camera and audio is good enough. I'm pretty sure I'll drop the second camera as its quality isn't acceptable.


Anyway, I hope this will be of use to anyone who's not confident of working with a soldering iron or mains voltages.
