I am having the same issue with the box rebooting. After opening it up I found that the capacitor went and resistors look burned, exactly the same situation as lordcy - same capacitor and resistors. Mediasonic told me to try replacing the capacitor, but what about the resistors that look melted like lordcy's box? Do I clean them (with what, looks like melted glue went on them) or replace all of them? This defect must have happened to quite a few boxes.

If you spend more than an hour repairing the machine, you're probably better off getting a new one, I got two new ones to replace my "problem" units and feel much better about that solution.

Yes, it's been over two years since anyone replied to this thread.
Lordcy - did you have any luck repairing your device after replacing the capacitor?
My board looks exactly the same as your photo - capacitor fluid all over the diodes. I tried replacing the capacitor but no luck. Wondering if the diodes also need replacing, or if the cap failure may have affected the other transformers.
