Question about Antec TruePower Trio 550 (TP3550) 550-Watt Power Supply
I bought a new pc today i got it home turned it on it was fine turned it off came back. when i went to turn it back on the i had not touched the button or the pc yet and a big blue flash came from the power supple and a loud bang and now it wont turn on what could be wrong?
Big blue flash! I would say one or more of the filter capacitors just blew up! time for a new power supply. the AC goes into the unit and a surge suppressor is across the line - looks like an orange colored disk - from there it goes to a step down transformer to a multiple output secondary. on the secondary there are numerous "bridge rectifier" circuits that take the AC and change it to usable
dc. That DC is filtered with large capacitance capacitors. I have a site if I can still find it that has large wattage power supplies. I'll find it and get back to you.
