Re: Wanted- Otto, Dead or Alive

It certainly could be interesting to get an inexpensive non-contact IR thermometer (or good fingertips) and check the temperature of the components inside, after it had died. If something is heating up, the longer it runs (or stays plugged in) the hotter it will get, and the longer it will take to cool off when power is finally cut. So an overheated component is very much worth chasing down.
