    You need knowledge and tools to diagnose and repair any PSU. Also you may need to replace a part which will cost you $$. In some cases it's cheaper to buy a new PSU. It really depends on the PSU and whats wrong with it. Adjusting the potentiometers is dangerous and modifying any PSU can permanently damage your motherboard/PCB use caution!!

    Be very careful. The capacitors in a PSU can have a very high voltage stored in them even hours after unplugging, so I recommend that you simply buy a new one, especially if you have no clue about diagnosing electrical problems by yourself.

    PSUs have no error code, and thus diagnosis of a sketchy part (not a completely failed one) could be tedious, even for an experienced technician. Unless the caps are obviously bulging.
