I want to give a huge thanks to Radio Reference member Bill, WA0CBW. He suggested that I remove the blown cap and see what happens. So I did and what do you know, the scanner came to life. To the naked eye, nothing else seems blown and I dont have the equipment to test every component. So 10 to 15 minutes of time to remove the blown cap and install a new cap, it is running like new. The board was cleaned up as it was a little messy. But it works.
Glad I was not discouraged, checked my PM's and moved forward....
Thanks again Bill.
