Bust a cap in yo a**!

So I took out the control pcb’s and gave everything a good clean up. Lubricated the faders, wiped away years of dust, re-flowed a few solder joints and gave the cabinet and switch-caps a good clean. However I was unable to locate the cause of the reset problem, until I looked at the power supply. Looks like the caps are in need of replacing, one has leaked all over the pcb, so it’s time to make an order for new ones. This may not be the cause of the reset problem but even if not it’s a job that needs doing right away.
