Since you're not too familiar with electricity, soldering and testing, the wise move would be to seek a professional. It's better to pay a few bucks than risking to further damage the ESQ-1 (or risk electrocution). Good luck! But if we can help you more, just drop by and tell us what we can do for y...

You must discharge it before anything. Please Google "Discharge Capacitor" If a visual check reveals nothing wrong, test with a multi...

You adjusted these, right?

I've got the Juno-106 service manual, which can come in handy. If you got some (see my website for the needed ones), we can trade.

Right now, I wouldn't know what to answer.

The DSS-1 requires DSDD (or DD [Double Density] for short) floppies. You can find them online.
