Is it really only fixed with screws as it appears ?
why do you think you cant replace this yourself??
You need to believe in yourself
I can confirm this is so easy to do that even I have done this!
if you are able to hold a pen then you are also able to hold a iron
If you are able to read you are also able to find the caps (its WRITTEN on the print)
If you can press a button with your finger you are able to place the iron at the right point of the print.
If you really donít trust this then Iím 100% sure you still have some old TV/radio/ whatever in the basement and just open this device to try it first on this junk
Then you will find out yourself you are able to replace 3 caps
If not please tell me why you cant do this
(ok, I can imagine a situation, if you donít have any hands on your body, but even then I know a person who use his feed to repair electronics (and this is not a joke)
One advise to give is:
Get those parts NOW before the psu will break (and it will for 100% sure)
Its irritating to WAIT until the problem will happen (angry wife etc etc)
