Guy's you both are a great help.  Really I am in debt to you for always helping me out.  I mean that sincerely and others on here who are a constant font of knowledge.  I actually wish I was properly electrically engineer minded (I might take a course time if I ever get time).

MJMP totally much appreciated my man!  :thumb-up:  I look forward to getting back to Belgium with the band, or even as a tourist.  I loved that tour, it was an amazing experience.  To get to meet you then in the process of that was a mega bonus.  And to think my tone was nowhere near as good as it is now (shorter cable runs my friend  ;) like you always said) so I'd be keen for you to hear how it all sounds now I'm fully fledged rack user.  Then again, I've developed a flight rig with only one rack unit in it  :facepalm: but has a high voltage preamp pedal at the heart  :whoohoo!:

As for the Furman.  I'd replace that one cap, may be a few other bits here and there and no doubt it will take me a while to get the time to do it.  But it sounds/seems possible that there are other parts in there that have A) taken some beating or B) could possibly be screwed already.  So Rusty I may take you up on your offer.  I will perhaps get to checking the components out to see where we are first of all though so we will take it from there.  It's nice to have a challenge but can be really time consuming what with all the other shit I got going on (and plus I'm lazy too  :lol:) .

Ok guy's so here is the next question, what do you think caused this?  I thought these furman PC's were meant to indestructible??  I can definitely tell you I was not the one messing about inside with the unit.  It's stayed in my rack since I bought it of ebay a few years back and powered everything nicely.  Until a few weeks ago.

Again thanks to both you guys.

Resurrecting this thread despite the unit seemingly working now I replaced the brown cap.  I'm going to replace those black Panasonic caps.

How can I clean off the black tar like substance that is on the PCB's?  I will re-cap this unit and sell it I think.

Hey RG, you can buy PCB cleaning stuff (spray?).  Not sure what a good brand is for that.

  I dunno, I thought most people used alcohol the isopropyl stuff.  I dunno if that is going to shift the black tar like substance.  I could try it.
