TheSolderMonger Posted August 3, 2018 Share Posted August 3, 2018 Hello again AtariAge! I've got another project needing your assistance! I recently acquired a Fairchild Channel F from a game fest in Austin and when I tested it, the game came up with some glitching but quickly vanished, with the TV losing signal. I saw a capacitor was leaking and replaced it with with a capacitor of the same capacitance, voltage and direction, and when I powered on the system, the TV made buzzing noises and the 25V 1000uf Capacitor I replaced is suddenly hot to the touch and then blew! Now I don't know if the voltages are off from the actual brick adapter or the internal switch bank caps are bad. Has anyone with a channel F had this issue?
