I have seen videos of people just opening the PC Power Supply and start touching things.
It is dangerous because there are 2 big main capacitors that can be loaded. I Think those are 400 volts.
Does anyone know how much time or days do you have to wait for those 2 caps to discharge?
I know that you can take a screwdriver and touch the positive and negative leads on the capacitor and it will spark, but some say that is not good as it can ruin other near components.
there is also a video that teaches how to do it but not with a screwdriver, he uses a soldering iron, and touches the capacitor with the AC Power adapter. each tab to a leg in the capacitor.
anyways i wanted to know how many days you have to wait to take out the pcb without any risk,
