99070038EF POWER SUPPLY 400W ATX

December 2020, 99070038EF went obsolete by the manufacturer and is no longer available. PS533 replaces 99070038EF. The new power supply also requires new metalwork to fit into the Ion console

If replacing a failed power supply with PS533, either the bottom tray must be replaced or the metal must be manually cut to fit the new power supply. There are also two labels for the new bottom tray and power supply.

Please provide the part number and serial number of the console when doing so. The serial number can be found on the outside of the console on the right hand side near the power supply.
