    Need more/better pics. The transformer stuff is probably glue from the factory.

    what exactly do I take pictures of? I cannot find anything that looks blown or just doesn't look right. I compare all the parts to make sure that they look the same.

    At this point does it really matter? Not trying to be a dick but you obviously don't posses the skills necessary to fix it yourself so you can either A. Sell it as blown or B. Pay to have it repaired

    I would like to get it repaired but I wouldn't mind knowing whats wrong with it so I can get an idea of how much the repair will be.

    If you try to power it up - what is he doing? Goes straight in to protection mode, blows the fuses?
