hey there

as part of my cocktail resto i blew a brand new power supply - most likely from the coin counter shorting back to the supply.

I found that a power transistor had blown and that has been replaced. No joy. All diodes I have tested appear fine, but most componenet shave to be de-soldered to be tested.

is this a project beyond my experience. I don't want to test it live but have no idea otherwise how the hell to work out what is going wrong

any ideas? Or is this best chalked up to experience?
