I picked up a Trident that I knew had some issues. After getting into it, I see some things that worry me. The power board is unplugged and it looks like one of the resistors is cracked. The MPU board has some crazy hack which makes me afraid to plug it in. Are either of these boards salvageable? What is going on with that MPU board? What would you suggest for how to go about turning this thing on for the first time? I'm not sure why the power board is unplugged but I'm sure it can't be good. Thanks for any advice you have, I'm a newbie to these early solid states. Cheers.

Cool. I'll cut that off and not worry about it. You are right, that disc capacitor is also blown. Guess I have some parts to order. Thanks for the help.
