Default SP2500 Speakers PSU problem

I have a Corsair SP2500 speaker set which had been in daily use for 2 years. While away from home I switched them off for a week and when I put them back on there was a bang and the house mains breaker tripped. Reset this and found the speaker did not work. Tried another power lead, but still didn't work.

I removed the PSU to check for a fuse, and found a number of components charred on this PCB.

Anoying that it was a few months over the 2 year warranty.

Is it possible to purchase a replacement PCB ?
Find an alternative power supply.
or get a drawing to be able to attempt a repair.


Paul.

Unfortunately, you cannot buy a replacement PCB.

You can ask a electrician to test the components/replace them if the markings on them are still visible.

Thanks for the reply, annoying that I can't buy a replacement board.
I removed the PCB from its mounting and there's more charred components, totally unrecognisable. If I can't get hold of a switched-mode PSU ~ 5V, 12V and 27V then I guess this SP2500 goes in the bin.

I have the same problem... as do many others... Does this highlight an underlying problem? Ifso why cant we buy a replacement board? its modular and easy to fit... obviously by opening the speakers our warranty is void so what does it matter?

Any update on this stupid problem, These corsair people literally says : "screw you all , We got money now goto hell" . Why cant they sell power boards, if they cant take care of out of warranty stuff.
