It came home yesterday, what, maybe a week and a half, and it's back.. kewl! I take it out the the shack, open the box, set it on the bench, plug it in. I turn it on, nothing. Dead, DOA. I smack it, it lights up. Smack it again, lights up again. I begrudgingly open it up and poke around. Apparently the pcb needs to be solidly secured (grounded) to the chassis. There was a missing screw keeping this from happening. I dig up a spare, fix it, tie up a few other loose ends (front fan was dangling by a zip tie) and button it up. It was not an exchange, it was the very same one I had, there's the resistor I replaced. No big deal, I didn't need a new one. I have a 12V spotlight, 750,000 candlepower. I plugged it in, started the PS and let it run that light for 15 minutes. So far so good, so it's back in service. Y'all keep your fingers crossed while I shop for an Astron. From now on I think I'll stick to passive stuff, tuners, cable and antennas. I hate this, I'm from MS and I sure would like to say good things about this company, but I'm compelled to share product information, even if it's bad, especially if it's bad. Mr. J, Please, this is not good.
