S3 OLED with lifetime, needs power supply

I have a S3 OLED unit with lifetime. Before I put it out of commission it was having trouble with CableCARD slot #2. Anything recorded from a premium channel on that card would be pixelated or partial. I tried swapping the two cards and re-pairing them but still effected slot #2. Looking around on here, and looking at the capacitors on the power supply, I'm pretty sure the cause is a bad power supply. I don't have the time or inclination to try and fix it so I just bought a new Premiere. Anyone here interested in taking it as-is for $150 + shipping?

I have the original box, manual and power cord. No remote or HDMI cable. If you're interested send me a PM.

Do you see an actual bulged top on at least one of the power supply caps?

Yes. It's been a while since I looked, but I believe there were 3 that looked bulged.

Price reduced again. If I don't get any takers at this price I'm just going to fix it and give it to my nephew.

Where do I actually have to look to see the current price?

Are HD and S3 power supplies interchangeable?

I might be willing to part with one of the non-subbed, but fully functional HD units I have, or just the power supply.

I've seen them sell for $50, at the low end, on eBay.

The power supplies already have had the output-side capacitors replaced, with quality replacements of the proper specs.

Just PM me if interested, and make an offer.

Unfortunately no. The S3 OLED has a unique power supply. According to Weaknees they're rare which is why they charge so much for them and require you to return your bad one in exchange.
