I own several very useful DEC "Leprechaun" Boxes, e.g. RD54-DB, RD53-DB, TK50-DB, RX50-DB, but in all but one the Power Supply has failed.
Has anyone got the Maintenance Print Set (sorry, I don't know the number) or just the schematics for the power supply?
Thanks!

Sorry, don't have that info. FYI, though, if you didn't already know, the power supplies for these do need a load to start and regulate properly. I had one that I thought was bad, that I was testing with no load on it, and thought it had failed. I stuck a disk in and the PS worked fine after that.

Thanks for the info!
I will test again as I cannot remember exactly how I did my testing a longer time ago ...

We're they actually referred to that way? I have never seen or heard of these. If they were, why?

Yes, that was the "official" nickname. Good-natured Leprechauns of course!
Why? - Relatively small in size but big in usefulness ...
