Concurrent problem in all old PSUs (Amiga and others) is capacitors drying, causing ripple on the voltage lines, then causing issues on the silicon devices, who causes one of them to fail. This is a cascade effect.

Better option: open the PSU and swap electrolytic caps, preventing the whole PSU bytes the dust (and in worst cases, destroying the computer!).
