Does anyone know who can do repairs on power supplies? I have a Slick 7 unit a got as a gift from my dad that's acting up. The voltage jumps 1-2 volts all on its own. Can't seem to find anyone in the Houston area that does this kind of repair. 

 

Tried contacting Slick 7 but no luck.

I have a few of them and I have not seen the actual PS act up, but the meters are prone to failing. Have you checked the voltage with  an external voltmeter?

Might be worth taking the cover off and checking the connections. I had a resistor with a solder joint that broke and caused a similar issue.

 

If you can't reach Slick 7 try reaching out to Les Wright at Wright Way Power Supplies.

You can PM Les Wright here as 'Les.'

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

If you get tired of messing around with it, sell it to me. I'll give you $20 for it, wonky meters and all. :D
