Default Linn Axis PCAS011 power supply

Axis does not turn on. No light on, no smoked parts. The motor in circuit reads 3 K ohms on each leg.
This appears to be an early model S/N 002851.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

you need to check the mains lead fuse.

any fuses either side of the mains transformer.

check with a multimeter there is AC into and out of the mains transformer.

check there is appropriate DC to the circuit boards.

after that circuit details are needed.

Check the fuse.... No transformer on an axis psu by the way.
Also check the high voltage caps and resistors of 15K (big ones).

Your absolutely right. It's abvious you've seen this before.
Linn was kind enoough to send me the schematic for the board.
It has no values so I calculataed the 15K resistors. Do you know what wattage they are? They look like 3 or 4 watt metal oxide.

Thanks to everyone for the help.

Regards,
Klinker

Dunno wattage but the 5 Watt Welwyn that I fitted have been 100 % for 6 months or so now.
Does one of them measure high?

Thanks for the input, I ordered 3W. I couldn't find 5W metal oxide.

Yes, I'll be glad to if I can figure out how!!

Hi All,

I too have a dead Axis - no turn on the motor and no LEDs illuminated. I can get the motor to spin by applying power direct to the motor terminals, but not through the board.
Has anyone found a solution or can advise what to change out?.
Also can anyone supply a circuit diagram ?

Thanks.
