Default What would you do?

I bought a 4k2d on another site. The seller had over 1500 posts and I felt I would be okay to buy from him. I was told the amp had never been repaired. I spent 600 on the amp. three days after I got it it went up in smoke. I sent it to the best repairman around.... I wont say who but I think you can figure it out. who thankfully was able to save the amp for another 260. here is what he had to say
" Looks like we can fix it. Power Supply is blown to hell, someone else had previously worked on this amp and looks like they did not properly secure the power supply mosfets to the heatsink, so they did not transfer heat properly so it blew them up when the mosfets overheated. I am short 1 mosfet of having all of the parts, at least that is how it looks at the moment will check again.

Will be $250 + return shipping, how soon are you going to be ready for it?


**% Customer Service
10/12 15:54 Someone had taken it apart and put it back together, at a minimum, maybe they did not repair it, but they put it back together incorrectly, it does not look like something the factory would have done, it had long screws with nuts on them to hold some of the mosfets down and they were not tight. "


What should I do at this point. I sent the guy a message nothing shi*y just letting him know and giving him the chance to reply he has been on a few times since and has not replied

I would ask him to cover some of the cost if he is the original owner

I took a couple days to sit on it before I act. I sent him a message yesterday telling him what the repairman said. He has been on since but he has not replied. I sent him the pics today.
