Greetings from Down Under,
I have an LKB-Pharmacia Power Pack for electrophoresis that is
misbehaving. It is Model 2197, bought in late 1988. It has begun to
blow fuses frequently - intermittently on a time scale of hours to days -
and has beensent off for repair. Problem is we dont have a circuit diagram and
the company will only provide one if we buy the complete service manual for a
couple of hundred dollars. Even then they can't supply it for 2 to 3 months
as they have to get it from Sweden or something. The people doing the repairs
are sniffing around doing their best but are finding it frustrating without
a circuit diagram. Anyone out there with any clues or suggestions as to
solving this problem quickly? I would not complain if the circuit diagram
were to somehow fall into my lap off the back of a truck either.
