Help! My Sbig CCD died!

My ST2000xm emitted smoke from the PCB tonight. Now it willl not power up so it needs repair. Is there any advice from IIsers who have had SBig repairs - is this going to require retuen to the USA (I guess yes) and how long can I expect it to take?

I wisj I knew what caused this - I did have some odd power issues with this camera right from the start - it would only work properly with the DC power supply and not the AC one - I wonder if there is a fault in the PSU - I had better return the lot.

Bugger!

John
