Hi Geoffrey, and welcome to the SOS Forums! 8-)

You say this is in good condition for its age, but then go on to admit that it doesn't power up when you plug it into the mains supply.

Now that might be down to something simple like a blown fuse (although strictly speaking you should have the unit investigated before replacing a blown fuse, as the reason for it blowing might be something that results int he fuse blowing again immediately and doing more damage to the internal circuitry).

However, it's far likely to be something that has failed internally due to age, or it could be a soldered joint failing, or fried components... Also, the Powertran 2000 was sold as a low-cost kit, so its build quality could be anything from immaculately professional to a huge bodge, depending on your Grandad's soldering abilities.


The fault(s) might be easy to solve; or they might not, and you could well pay an expert a lot more than £100 to track down the cause of the problem before they can even tell you if it can be repaired economically.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it's almost impossible for any of us to fault-find by remote control, and you could do yet more damage trying to fix it yourself.

You say you're only selling it for £100, but I suspect since you have no idea just what's wrong that you'll have to sell it as 'not working, for parts only' and leave it up to the buyer to investigate the cause of the problem.

Hope this helps!
