    horror inside


      My slingbox stopped working, so started to check why lights are off. Power converter produced no DC so I opened the "Sunny switiching adapter" model SYS1298-1506-W3U, Part number SYS1298-1506. Inside is something I have not seen for a long time. Homemade PCB, corroded, badly soldered, pieces of some white stuff which looks like chewing gum. Even worse ground pin on the plug is not even connected to anything. How in the world this unit got certified for UK?  I am sending this unit to EU Consumer commision before anybody gets killed or poisoned by whatever is inside this thing. Some pictures attached:
