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.

Sometimes I look back at a post and wonder what was I thinking

I got a 20 or 25% discount on a new Jive Pro for a broken Power Jive. It ended up the same price as new after the ridiculous charge for shipping. Rather give that to a retailer than fill a fictitious shipping coffer.

Should have kept it and tried to fix it or not bothered in the first place. I'm out the matching connectors for the motor it was paired with too.

Really cool what was achieved here!

I have a slightly damaged 80HV, the caps got dented a bit. I have not tried to power it up and just assume that a dent in the cap is going to be a problem.

Can you just slice the case off to get into it and then glue it back when it's repaired?

Nice if you could somehow post the pics here. Unless a member cannot see them via the link.

Oh... didn't know that.
Here you are.

You can slice the Case with a very sharp cutter knife.
You have to slice slowly, carefully and often because of the rigid plastic then you can open the top.

If it is open: destroy the cap(s) until there are only the wires inside left. Use a soldering Iron with a small tip and remove the wires which where inside the cap from the soldering eye . Be very carefull - don't destroy the soldering eyes in Case of using to much heat or pulling to early on the old wires of the caps.

Closing: some red Hot glue- put the top back on and use a Small piece of heatshrink.

300 Flights after changing the cap's so far...

P.s. the repaired jive was a 60HV. The 80HV needs some bigger cap's- but thats the only difference
