a dead 1.6 w/ a working psu sounds like a fried power transistor.

I've performed this repair sucessfully in the past, it's relatively easy.
I also personally would recommend ditching the spider chip in favor of a stable, soldered solution. I've had countless boxes brought to me because the solderless chips have failed.
