    Thanks for this - I rather suspected it was dead (or on its last legs) but it is good to confirm this. My temptation is to go for the Samsung SF-560R as a replacement.....

Sorry to break this to you but the power supply unit has blown. We have had a few of these back at my workshop with the same problem the only way to repair it is a new power board but without looking at it, it may be something else like the power switch isn't turned on!!.

It's actually cheaper to upgrade the machine than fit a new power board.

Hope this helps please rate me cheers
