I just finished recapping the 1084S-P2 and powered it on. Perfect picture! Ultimate stability!
I heard a popping/hissing sound
I rushed to pull the plug (the powerbutton is broken as usual with these devices).
The funny thing is that I didn't smell anything odd, which usually is the case when something is burning. A quick inspection didn't reveal anything suspucious. Neither any smoke was visible.
The one thing that crosses my mind is the suction cap that connects the tube to the line transformer, I had a little trouble reconnecting it properly. Though the leads are in the tube hole, the suction cap my be just a little not-so-tightly-connected. Could it be that I heard sparks from underneath there?
Obviously I checked the bipolar cap but it looks okay. I haven't measured anything yet, not even sure how to do that.
