Access Virus Rack – Restarts Due To Bad Capacitor

This Access Virus Rack was continuously restarting when power was connected. This is apparently a common issue with the Access Virus and is due to a capacitor in the power supply going bad. In this video I replace said capacitor.

I didn’t have to do any real troubleshooting here as there were various references to the problem online. Here is one example:
