Faulty Power Supply Symptoms – This One Is Pretty Obvious:

- You didn’t hear a loud pop, but nothing happens when you try to turn on your medical laser

- The circuit breakers are popping when your try to run your medical laser device
Caution – Don’t attempt to fix the power supply yourself. Leave it to a professional!
Power supplies can be very dangerous especially when handled by an inexperienced individual – even if it is unplugged. HVPS contain capacitors that can hold a supply of voltage for an extended period of time. You can easily run the risk of being electrocuted. Don’t attempt to open the cover.
