RIFA Overload

Post by IanB »

Just got RIFA'd again, this time it was a Toshiba T3200 orange gas plasma luggable but when I opened the PSU I found twelve RIFA paper capacitors!

Six 100nF Class X2 (spot the blown one) and Six 2.2nF class Y
This PSU was never going to survive, it was RIFA Russian roulette with all chambers loaded!

I feel like maybe there should be a gallery thread for exploded RIFA photos.
