    Help to fix a broken SB3

    Hi,

    I have 2 classic SqueexeBox 3. Both broken. I power them and nothing is shown on it's display. I only can see the red light of the tosslink connector.

    I think they are broken because I plugged them to a power supply with polarity changed.

    I have been browsing this forum to find out if anyone had a similar problem, with no luck. I would like to revive at least one unit, and would be glad if someone would guide me to an apropriate post.

    Thank you,

    Thank you,

    I have found this web page, checked the power supply, and done the resets (without the screen)

    https://joes-tech-blog.blogspot.com/...x-classic.html

    It gets warm, but IP does not show on scanner.

    Then I have read this other post ( https://joes-tech-blog.blogspot.com/...x-classic.html ) about display replacement, and MartinK's comment: ôplugging and unplugging would sporadically bring back the display, but only only if the SB was warm.ö

    It has worked for one of the SBs.

    (Next step, should be to change the capacitors.)
