Re: DV-PF4E(UK) Power suppy repair

I do now seem to have output, the only voltage that seems low is the AL-30 all the others seem fine.
The buzzing is worse when the power supply is connected to the main board.

Re: DV-PF4E(UK) Power suppy repair

I found that the transistor Q1003 was shorted between base and emitter so I replaced that and changed Q1001 again, but I'm getting a loud buzzing I think from T0011 the power transformer and still...

Re: DV-PF4E(UK) Power suppy repair

I've replaced the mosfet Q1001 with the same part as was installed originally, but resistor R1043 keeps failing going open circuit.
Does anyone know what other component could be causing this?

Re: Back to Back Transformers

The transformers do get hot after a while with no load especially the input transformer. I think when I was testing before I got more of a voltage drop with them the other way around.

I've attached an image from my scope.

This was captured with no load.

Yellow trace is connected to the output transformer.

Blue trace is connected to the 12V side.

Re: Back to Back Transformers

Yes the schematic is how I have it wired up.

I don't have an earth connection.

Re: Back to Back Transformers

Do you mean that the output transformer's 240V side has dual windings in parallel, as I am only connected to one of them.

Re: Back to Back Transformers

Yes with direct connection and no diodes my multimeter is showing 100Hz

Yes I have a scope

I only get 50Hz on the 12V windings

Even if I disconnect the energy/power meter I still get 100Hz...

Re: Back to Back Transformers

I've attached an image of how there wired. The transformer in the bottom of the image is the 240V in, with a fuse before it, then the two 12V's are connected together...

Re: Back to Back Transformers

Both the transformers are from old 12V battery chargers both of which had rectifiers in them aswell.
If the transfomers had rectifacation would they still need a seperate rectifier.
