Grid 1520 component list? Maintenance manual?

I have a Grid 1520 (LCD screen, unfortunately) that worked perfectly up until a week ago when something went pop. I'm assuming I'll have to take apart the PSU and see what failed, but before I do that, has anyone put together a components/parts list of common things to replace?

For that matter, My 1520 arrived without any documentation or official software. Is there an online repository for the distribution disks, manuals, and (most importantly) service manual?

If you need disk images I have the package from my 1520 (also the LCD model) I can dump and send off. They used to be on the GRiD Yahoo group but I don't know where they went when groups closed.

Here is an archived version of the RuGrid Forum: https://flecom.net/yahoo-groups/RuGRiD-Laptop/files/
Here is also Klyballs page for some of the same software: http://www.klyball.com/GriD/
Finally, I uploaded some versions of GriD software to Vetusware if you are a member there: https://vetusware.com/download/MS DOS ROM Image for 1520 with BIOS Flash 3.3/?id=17284
Thats a ROM uploaded version that was from archive.com
although I also have original GRiD DOS 3.3 floppies if anyone wants a copy although I believe they are all uploaded on the RuGrid and Klyball pages.
