I am in the process of replacing the Power Supply board in my JP. The Backbox door is really impinging my ability to reach and extract the old PS board.

Is the best way to simply take the door off its hinge, detach the 2 connectors and set aside?

Maybe I am missing something more direct??

Thanks

Not sure what you mean by that

The door behind the translight?

Should be a sliding latch, sometimes it's secured with a screw to keep the door from hitting the backglass

Yes, the cardboard/board/whatever that holds the lights behind the translate has hinges on the left and the latch on the right, swings open, and gets in the way if you're working back there on boards. It can be easily removed with a few screws at the hinges and simple disconnection of the wires. It's a pain trying to reach anything back there between machine and around that board, so when we were working on boards on my JP, we just took it off temporarily. Good luck!

If it's not opening far enough, look at the light bulb on the far lower left of the front. It's probably hitting the inside of the head. If you pull that bulb, it'll open further.

Removing that bulb in the corner helps, but only a little.

Yep, this looks like the only way to gain better access to the PS Board.

Thanks!
