Default Dead Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2200 cable box

Had a power failure a couple weeks ago. The power eventually came back
on but my Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2200 cable box didn't, it's
completely dead. I bought an Explorer 940 to replace it, but I miss the
display that the 2200 has. I would have bought a new 2200 to replace
it, but all the stores in my area were selling the 940 (even my cable
company).
If not too expensive, I'd like to repair my old 2200 (or have it
repaired). Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Could
it be something simple to fix (like replacing a fuse) or something more
complicated (like replacing a power supply)?

Check the power supply/input and the surrounding caps,
rectifiers and transistors.

Hello Mikey:

You may have correctly diagnosed the trouble already. Check to see if
its fuse has been blown. Otherwise, perhaps the power supply has failed.

Are you skilled at working on failed electronics?

Not really. Years ago I was interested in electronics and built a few
electronic kits. Still have an AM transistor radio that I built from a Radio
Shack kit. But don't think I could do much beyond replacing the fuse. If it
even has a fuse... I'm presuming it does, but haven't opened the cable box
yet. The box has Torx security screws closing it (size T10) and I don't have
the right screwdriver or bit to open it. I'll probably buy a set of Torx
bits, they aren't too expensive and would be handy to have.

Finally got around to opening it. It does have a fuse. It didn't look to
me like it had blown, but I put a piece of wire in place of the fuse and
plugged in the 2200 to see if it would come on, but it didn't. Oh, well.
