Amiga 600 PSU -12v line is oscillating between -1.5v and -0.5v

I've tested each Pin on the power connector of my 600s PSU, they all seem ok except for the -12v pin which is oscillating between ~-1.5v and -0.5v g0ing from -1.5v to -0.5v and back to -1.5v in around 1 second.

Visual inspection of the PSU components doesn't show any obvious problems with any components.

Any thoughts on what the issue might be, where to start looking?

PSU is a 391 029-05 (possibly an Australasian revision?) with the "391 029-03 rev A" looking to be the closest match.

Having pulled my 3 a500 psu's apart after sitting for 20 years, i found quite a few
capictors had leaked. they looked perfect on the top but had bulged and leaked from the bottom. I just Finished recapping the and they are putting out the right voltage now.

Thanks, good call. I'll look at recapping for sure then. Just to be certain the caps are good going forward
