| p.1 #1 · Worth repairing old Broncolor Pulso 4 ? |
I've bought cheap old, not working Pulso 4 pack.. It has a leaking capacitor and I've not even tried to power it up yet.
I've heard that the capacitors are not the best in these packs once they start to go, and you have to condition them regularly etc.. An estimate to replace a capacitor including freight etc will be at least $500 and there's no guarantees there won't be more problems.
An alternative is to buy a capacitor from Europe at about $120 inc postage and replace it myself, then hope that's all that was wrong. I can replace a capacitor without killing myself or the pack, but my question to all is, what is your experience with these packs, are the worth keeping & repairing etc..
Any advise and or tips would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I have an original Mobil pack and heads with some modifiers, so have an investment in Bron bits & pieces already.
Just for kicks, here is a shot of the leaky capacitor...
