Default Help with a Linn Brilliant PSU U25WSL

Hi everyone,

I year or so ago I bought a Linn Wankonda with a wonky PSU. Apparently the seller has experienced a power surge and blew up his PSU (this he did not tell me, but in researching the issue I discovered a thread on another board where he was seeking advice on repairing the unit).

Anyhow, it looks like he replaced 2 FETs but there are a number of burnt SMD resistors. I have looked high and low for a schematic for this PSU but cannot find one. Because the resistors are burned (and open) I cannot read their values. Anybody know where I might source a schematic? Any other adivice on how to go about figuring out the resistor values would also be greatly apreciated.

About all I can suggest would be to find an identical PSU, or someone who has one, and get the resistor values from there.

Or you could contact Linn.

You could have a look at:
Linn Brilliant SMPS - naked! - pink fish media
where there is a lot about fixing the older Brilliant supply, and a mention of a schematic.
