    Hello it might work with a 2A PSU do not forget that + is on the outside of the barell an - inside so the opposite to lot of PSU. Electrolitc capacitor have a shelf life depending on usage quality of DC voltage they suffer a lot due to the switching power supply used. So after 20 years it is...
