Hey Kiriakos, I decided not to fix it, I really don't have time and I have other projects to do, this is the last on my list.
So I will put it back together and sell it on ebay, I'll buy the Energy 16 instead.
If I was back in my country "Argentina" I would definitely fix it, but these chargers are getting cheaper and cheaper, I would rather buy another one.
Thanks. :)

In this case just buy a New one which will be covered with a warranty period.
It seems to me that any modern charger with a pulsing PSU inside,  it is unable to operate more than 4 years with out needing repair.
Mostly because the parts quality in all chargers nowadays are average.

2016 Update 8)

After making my dream true within 2016 about also getting one Ansmann Energy 16 (as damaged about repairing it power supply)  :) , due it old production date I was forced to replace all it entire set of electrolytic capacitors by using latest and high quality parts.

http://www.ittsb.eu/forum/index.php?topic=1129.0

I did think ahead and ordered an quantity of capacitors able to rebuild both of my Ansmann Energy chargers.
Today due my experiences with Energy 16 I think that at Energy 8 few capacitors them was a poor choice when this was originally assembled, and I do have some recommendations as corrections.
I do advice to all to have a good look at my post of my Ansmann Energy 16 renovation, I have add further details regarding my choices about New replacement capacitors.

Here is few pictures of my Energy 8,  I have all ready install fresh capacitors at the power supply PCB, and now I am working with it motherboard. 
But here comes a Warning as there is three wrong printed capacitor polarity pads. Check picture No4

New update February 2018 

I made my decision to replace entire number of LED at my Ansmann Energy 16, but I did included in my order enough LED and for Ansmann Energy 8.  :)
Below there is three pictures clearly demonstrating that PCB maker had to improvise of how to add two center LED over this PCB,  specific improvising it would add more trouble at replacing these LED.

But either way, addition of new LED they do transform this charger and lights looks bright as this to be a Christmas tree.
Therefore it does worth the trouble doing such an upgrade.     :)

Undescribed happiness   :)

One DOA LED came close to scare me for few minutes,  but it is my fault that I did not inspect received merchandise prior using it.  :P

Now my Ansmann Energy 8 among with my Ansmann Energy 16, they simile more to LED light wall projectors  ;D ;D

THE ( Very Happy ) END .
