I have an Alien Star I'm trying to get going.
I have a laundry list of adjustments that I still need to do.
1) Rebuild of Power Supply.
2) Grounding of boards (CPU, Power, Driver)
My question has to do with the 12V supply from the bottom board.
When I measure the voltage at the Bridge Rectifier I get 16VDC.
Replaced Bridge and had no change.
Transformer is giving me 12.5 VAC correctly.
I currently have a 10000 uF 25 V capacitor installed for the 6800 uF 25 V.
My other currents are 60 VDC (measured 65.7 VDC), 42 VDC (46 VDC).
Is this a standard voltage output or is it way out of tolerance?
If it is way out of tolerance where should I begin my investigation?
