Need to be sent to Germany and they will give you an assessment of damage. This one looks like a total replacement, expect to pay about 60% of new price.

Yeah, was afraid of that might be the case....

Was hoping to remove some of the red stuff and put some new caps in.

Kontronik offers 20% off for a new replacement. I got that offer twice.

Did you have to cut the case to get to the pads to solder the caps to? Wondering how you did it.

Hot gun melts the red goop and scrape if off. Dremel the Caps in two, pliers to gently take off the remants and leave the pins connected.

Then solder the new caps to the pins, which is a tedious job as the metal oxidizes quickly.

Thanks for posting. Clever thinking. I always thought the innards of the jives were inaccessible. Now I know.
