Thought I'd share some recent power supply issues.  Hope you don't run into these...

Plugged in my controller & power supplies from last year.  Wanted to test the lights before sending out.  Plugged in and immediately smelled burning, unplugged board.  For the first time, I've had bulbs literally go up in smoke.  Not a great start today. While troubleshooting, I learned that when the C9 capacitor on the F16-V2 board exploded. 

One of the 12V power supplies (that worked just fine from last year) was reading 24V!!!  Might be something to check on our power supplies before damaging hardware.  I didn't realize there was a problem until it was too late.

Willing to repair that for cost of return shipping charge if you send to me. LOL
