I have managed to pick up a couple of very cheap Indys ($US125), but
the powersupplies have died (this is a very common fault with Indys from
I've seen of stories from the 'net). SGI Australia is claiming that
give me new ones for $US520 (powersupplies are not repaired as they are
I could fix it if I had the schematic (and may be able to anyway, but
like to get some help if I can :-), and I was wondering if anyone on the
would be able to help with one of:
a schematic for the Nidec/Power General PSU for the Indy
a contact in SGI and/or Power General who could get me the schematic
a couple of cheap PSU replacements - perhaps used ones in otherwise
dead Indy's, or a remarketeer that has them, etc.
Of some help has been a company in California called B&B Solutions, who
sell me one for $US295, plus freight etc. (which ends up some $US150
than SGI Australia once I get it here). I have tried Nidec/Power
got the following response:
> This power supply, designed and manufactured exclusively for the Silicon
> Graphics Indy series, is no longer produced or supported by Power
> General. SGI is your best source for repair or replacement.
> Proprietary design schematics and materials lists are unavailable.

Any help would be much appreciated.
