re: Paging IAN - apple iii power supply - revised
I was incorrect about the problem with these power supplies. The top power
supply blows fuses, and the bottom one had a square capacitor (or whatever
it is) crack open a smoke out. Compare the upper-right sections of the two
photos to see what I am talking about.

photo. Can you get better clarity? Also, a photo of the under (foil)
side. It looks like a small value cap if what I'm seeing is what I'm
thinking it read. Being close to the power, that might just be a cap
to filter noise from leaking back on the line. A look-see at the foil
might help trace out its purpose.
Do you have any similar working supplies?
