Changing SMPS- Extended.

Changing SMPS- Extended.

Fractal Printers are designed with serviceability in mind. Changing SMPS in Julia Extended can be done with the help of a + Screw driver and 2.5mm Allen key (Allen Key is provided with the Accessory box). 

Steps to replace SMPS:
1. Switch off the machine and remove power cable.

2. Remove Back cover. Loosen the Allen bolts using 2.5 mm Allen key. 
       Tip: Do not remove the bolt completely at first. If you remove few bolts completely the weight of the Back plate falls on remaining few screws and loosening them becomes difficult. So Loosen all bolts partially first and then remove the bolts completely.

3. Once you remove the back cover you can get access to SMPS. 

Note: Take a picture of the SMPS wires before removing them.
