Sky + faulty power supply.

A Sky+ box stuck with a red light, would not power up.

The output capacitors were bulged and replaced but still no boot up. The main input capacitor looked visually ok but was checked with an ESR meter, it did not register a capacitance or a resistance ! totally shot.

New one in (circled below) and the machine was working again.
