    Vu duo PSU

    Another issue with another dodgy and dangerous vu duo. How this box was ever allowed to be sold is beyond me. My box started buzzing the other day. Turned it off immediately, opened box up to reveal insides and turned it on again, same buzzing with bright bliding sparks coming from one of the pins where the power cable inserts. If you are looking from behind the box it would be the left pin.

    Not sure if I even want to try to repair thIs, I can solder pretty well but should this be fixed, replaced or binned?

    The box is original, it was bought from WOS. Heres a couple of pictures.

    Should I replace the small power connector on the PSU board. That's where its sparkingIMG_20190511_104935.jpgIMG_20190511_104935.jpg

    World of satellite shop support pretty blunt in not offering any support.

    Safer with a Zgemma that buying a VU+ from WOS

    The Duo is ancient now so you’d be lucky to find any genuine replacement parts anyhow. As regards WoS shop, customer support is second to none.
