Repair Chroma Polaris22. Juli 2017
This is not my daily business but if a good customer wants me to repair this…ok. At the end it’s just electronic. He told me, the unit didn’t work anymore and had a electric smell. Ok kind of alert in my mind. The first issue was a burned power connector. Unfortunately I cannot find a picture. But trust me, it was close to a fire! I was thinking, that this malfunction could be responsible for the SMPS to fail.
Well disassembling was just pain in the …! Lot of glue, no space to work, short cables, small plugs. At the end I got the pcb boards off. Checked the eletrolytics (my favorite failure part) and after replacing it worked. Pay attention to get the right physical size of the electrolytics. There is no space left. They cannot be bigger as the original. Putting everything together, more glue (hehe), new power cord. Rock solid. See the pics.
