I have a Cisco 2970G-24T that died here, it powers but gets no further. It is outside of Cisco's EOL support. I popped it open and there are a few bad caps on the board (2 bulging, 2 leaking).

Could this be the issue? If so, it doesn't look like it would be *that bad* to replace them.

What would [H] do? Repair or scrap?

Could very well be the caps. If you have the soldering skills, I'd say go for it. Worst case is you're out a couple bucks and some time.

Worth it IMO 24 port gigabit cisco switch isn't it?

Yeah, 24 port gigabit switch, no SFP ports. It was End-Of-Life way back in 2006,

I am currently working on a RMA for a 3750G that was made in 2006. We have a bunch of others made then that are still chugging along.
