Quote:Hi nytecam,Glad to hear your Classic survived, and the problem was with the power source. I've enjoyed reading your posts and seeing your images, and hope you continue. FWIW, My 12" has been a good performer, and I expect it to outlive me. I do have a bit of a concern about your resurrecting the factory(?) power source. More than once I've read that these devices are a catastrophe just waiting to happen. So around April I bought a 16v regulated power source from Jim at Scopestuff and have had no problems. In fairness I had had no problems before either. But Jim's quite adamant that the old PS is dangerous to life and limb. Just some thoughts.
