    Showcenter 200 does not start (shows 2 lights)


    I wonder is anyone can help me.
    My showcenter 200 tuns on the green and orange light when switching it on... and that is it. No screen. Nothing.
    It does not continue in starting up and turn the light to green. I have deconnected the power cable for an hour. Try to reload software using an USB stick, but nothing changes.

    One possible clause:  The power supply may have gone ***-eyed.

    If you open the unit up and look at the little power supply unit, do you see obvious bulging of the capacitors?  That's a common failure mode for hardware of this vintage.

    There's some pictures and discussion on this here.

    I've had to do that sort of repair to mine, see here.  Not too hard at all, as long as you are careful.

    2 years on, and mine's still going strong!

    I think that this is a typical problem of badcaps. The 2 caps with 1000µF 10V at the Powersupply must be replaced. You need 5Volt for the Mainboard. I know that your problem is years old, but I had this problem today and found nothing about this in the Web. Perhaps this will help others.
