    Welcome to ETO.
    As said on the other forum, it's not worth tying to fix.
    For safety's sake, buy a new one (they're cheap enough).

    I agree with Alec actually, but cap C1 looks so obviously blown.

    Yes, the capacitor is 100% absolutely faulty - and replacing it will most likely cure the problem. I've repaired numerous supplies in that way, it's a VERY, VERY common fault.

    As for replacing rather than repairing, you're often better with the original PSU with the proper connector, rather than a Universal one and adaptors to make it fit.
