Advertisements Hello, I have a S3 that failed due to bad capacitors a year or two ago. I replaced the bulging caps and all was well, until now. A few days ago, I unplugged the S3 to move it, but once it powered down, it won't come back up again, and I can hear the power supply ticking again. As far as I can tell, the new caps are good and soldered correctly (and after all, the repair worked for over a year). One thing I can say is that if I use the power supply to power the hard drive only (unplugging the motherboard), it works fine - the drive powers up, and no ticking. I only get the ticking when the motherboard is connected as well. Perhaps a short somewhere? Any suggestions on what to try next? Thanks.
