Tried to power up a Sun 3/80 mainboard...
Inductor L0500 (right near the power input) (I assume this is an
inductor by the L0500
marking on the PCB) smoked.... (pink smoke no less)
Anyone familiar with the 3/80 to give an idea of why this might have smoked.
Board appears in excellent condition, no foreign objects on the board,
no sign of any
shorts that I can see.
Would like to rescue this board. If it was a PC I'd look for bulging
Anyone got a schematic for the 3/80 ? (I've never seen any Sun schematics).
