Originally recorded October 5, 2013.

The other day my YouTube video I was watching cut out and wouldn't replay, nor would any other website come up.

I went down to my network equipment and found that my Linksys Etherfast EF2124 24-port 10/100 switch had every light on it flashing in unison. Killing power for a few minutes just made it more angry, now all the lights would come on and stay on.

Today I had some time to open it up and see what went wrong--China. Faulty, blown, bulging capacitors due to heat from a resistor near by. Fortunately it was just the power supply.

In this video you come for a front seat view as we discover together why this switch failed and if it still works, and how it can be repaired. This is not of course the best repair method there, others would have fixed the existing power supply. But, based on the parts I had on hand, this was another NO-COST FIX!
