Does anyone know where I can buy a new Aero Flash Power supply # 152-0007 12 -14 volt a used serviceable one would also be considered. I bought this from A/C Spruce some time ago and in the mean time the company has gone out of business the strobe light works fine plugged into another power supply. I would of course entertain another system, but the mounting was made for this power supply, and would take some

Dave, pretty sure these are what I have on my project currently. Plan was always to take them off and go LED. On a trip currently, but when I get home I can take a few pictures for you if interested

When left idle for long periods these power supplies can fail.

I recall there is a procedure for bringing them up on reduced voltage for a short while to get them started. They can then be run on full operating voltage. You'd need a power supply that can output variable voltage.

I may still have the troubleshooting pages from Aeroflash with the pertinent info. I'll give a look and let you know.

Here's the Aeroflash troubleshooting document. The "warning" paragraph has the info about possibly resurrecting a power supply with reduced voltage.

Enough voltage to resurrect the dead or vice versa! These things have large capacitors that store lots of kick, be careful. Even if its not working it can still have a charge when powered that will bleed off over time.

If the power supply can be opened.....maybe get the numbers off the capacitors (with caution) and order new ones from Digikey or Mouser .
