Question about Computers & Internet
It has analogue volt meter and seperate analogue amp meter. I have replaced all ic's on the pcb and transitors and re-capped with still no joy. The main power transistor on the back heatsink is a 2N3055 which i havn't replaced as i am getting volage and amperage out. Any help would be great..also i can't get hold of the schematic for this; if anyone can help.

There is a book, "Electronics for Inventors" (check Amazon), that will give you the basics of power supply design and electrical components including general scematics. Without more info on what the PS is supposed to produce in the way of voltage and current, there's not much more to be said.

Note: I'm answering your post with the assumption that you plan on using this power supply with a computer. If this is not your intention, please disregard my solution attempt.
You likely already know this, but if you are powering a computer you're going to need a power supply with more wattage. I would recommend nothing less than a 350 watt power supply.
Follow this link to calculate how much power you need to run your computer: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
If you're not ready to give up on your 270 watt power supply, then remove all PCI/PCI-E devices, USB ports, extra fans, non-boot hard drives, extra DVD/CD drives etc. one at a time until the computer powers up. Anything you can do to reduce the load on the power supply will help.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.
