This link might have some info that could help with your DPS-800GB PS.

This is also where the blown component was mentioned.

Every bit of information helps.
Thanks very much for that link, Xandrios,
trying to ingest the information on that russian forum
perhaps the replaceing of a 100uF capacitor mentioned there will do the trick. Dryed ElCap sounds very familiar.

Edit: Indeed, when a 100uF 25V capacitor is soldered to the board as shown in the picture in above link, the PS can be brought back to life
When mains is applied, a click is heard, the 3,3V and 5V standby voltages re-appear and the PS can be switched on the usual way.

Now I just have to find a way to replace the failing capacitor in a proper way - It is located in a very unreachable place in the center of the board.

Again, thanks for pointing out that link, Xandrios
