Gent Vigi Compact common failure question
#1
Hi Guys, quick question. 
Iv got a spare PSU, seems to work and had it on the shelf for a good few years. I believe it came out of a Vigi Compact. Does anyone know if this is the PSU that commonly fails? I think it was when you dropped the mains to do standby calculations, sometimes the PSU wouldn't power back up afterwards. I was going to flog it on fleebay but if this is one of the bad PSUs then il just bin it.

Should be fine, depends how old as they had a problem with the buzzer dying alot due to a change in buzzer provider. It'll work nonetheless.

*had* you mean still do lol we still get most of our gent PSUs being replaced because of the buzzer. Would be fine if the buzzer was £50 but when you are shelling out over a grand every few months the novelty wears out very quickly.
*Hits call point*... "we are on test aren't we?"... Whoops
