MY toppy needs repair and I wonder if anyone has one gathering dust that I could have?

Ideally one in full working order with capacitors replaced

The caps are on the psu board so you can just swap the psu boards if you are lucky enough to get one that is similar to your existing one (I think there is more than one type of psu)

Good afternoon Geoff

Thank you for that piece of advice although I'm not sure I feel competent given my current disability – for your information and for those in the forum I have been diagnosed with motor neurone disease these past five years and my hands are the part of me that are affected although I still have part of them in use at the moment

Although this one is listed as a satellite receiver it's a TF5800 which I'm sure is Freeview https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Topfield-TF5800PVR-Satellite-Receiver-overviewTopfield-TF5800PVR-Freeview/264784572891?hash=item3da663f1db:g:yxwAAOSwMhRe~7yb
Short of a remote, but you have one. For that kind of money it would be worth getting and sending to andyfras to changed the caps and give it a check out.

Your existing remote is for an 5810 so I don't believe will work on a 5800 (although there may be a patch that could make it work)

If you don't feel confident taking the PSU out, I'm sure you could speak to andyfras and send him the whole Toppy. It would obviously cost more in postage.

He used to have a couple of spare Toppies which he fixed and sold for a nominal price to help pay for this site. I suggest you make contact and see if he can help if no one's got any spares...
