Re: Is this dead or can be repaired ?
Bad news. It looks like one of the diode is gone.
I've asked for the spare diodes here in italy.
Is it possible that the price is euros 180 + shipment ????
Is it possible to find compatible diodes and change them on the board ?
That is what I would do, diodes are cheap, even top quality ones. I would get the numbers off them and start checking electrical supply houses and electronics repair shops. Last time I swapped out a diode, I stopped by an electronics repair shop and chatted with the owner, he gave me the diodes, they are not hard to solder in either. Just use a low wattage soldering iron. This is where a cheap soldering iron is often good, as they tend to not be very powerful.
