Hi everybody,
while I realize I may be a bit late to the party, so to speak, here goes...
I scored a D-Link DGS-1210-10P (Gigabit, PoE, yadda yadda - part of our video
surveillance setup) off work after it had croaked there (taken out a circuit
breaker and showed no activity whatsoever afterwards).B Not knowing about a
lifetime warranty (no idea whether that is even effective here in Germany), I
grabbed a screwdriver and cracked it open, of course tearing the warranty
Examination revealed that there was a coin-sized scorch mark in an
SMD-populated area on the solder side of the PSU PCB and even some
residue/evidence of sparking?B on the inside of the casing below;
disconnecting the power supply andB injecting 12V at the appropriate terminals
evoked a self test/init LED pattern, leading to the assumption that the main
board might still be okay.
The PSU is an open frame switcher made by APD (Asian Power Devices, Inc.),
Model NW-110A01, Input 100-240V AC 50-60Hz 1,7A max. and has two outputs, +54V
DC 1,6A andB +12V DC 2A.
An inquiry to the manufacturer how to obtain that part in Qty. one stayed (not
totally unexpectedly) unanswered.
So did anybody here by chance make the same mistake on a brain dead unit with
a functional supply and wouldn't mind parting with that?!

Thanks in advance,

Arno // DO4NAK
