Re: Overengineering

Ah, right.

Yeah, it is a very good standard, the plugs/sockets are polarized and are very safe especially compared to the basic plugs used in most of Europe.
The only drawback is the size/shape...

Re: Overengineering

Hmmm now I'm puzzled - how can you not get the question?

BS1363 is a British Standard. Are you saying that the same plugs/sockets are installed in Australia?

Re: Dell 2407WFPb Monitor - Bad Cap

Carefully prise the cap from the board and adhesive - it shouldn't take much effort. Use a blunt piece of wood - ice lolly stick is ideal - to remove adhesive from board. Then desolder the cap and...

Re: Vestel Main Board 17MB22-2

That'll be the one from a few months ago...? I remember it well :cheers:

Before you open the bugger try and remember if it had the 'add-on' cap - some do, some don't. May save you opening it up...

Re: Vestel Main Board 17MB22-2

The board in the pic is not the board I'm working on - I borrowed the pic from another thread. It's purely to illustrate where it is.

My board has the flying lead connected on the back but no cap...

Re: Vestel Main Board 17MB22-2

Thanks, but that's not the problem. This cap was a later (manual) addition to some of these boards. The markings are obvious on the board - within the circular cap footprint the (+) is at the bottom...

Vestel Main Board 17MB22-2

Can anyone with this board confirm the capacitor connection highlighted in the attached pic.

The board I'm working on has lost the cap so I need to know the polarity of the connections for...

Re: I'm considering only using my laptop from now on...

Keep your (shitty?) Compaq and spend some of your cash upgrading that to better suit your needs instead of *upgrading* your Lenovo.

Re: HP W22 Eliminate AC

Was your CCFL > LED conversion a kit or a custom mod by yourself? I'm wanting to convert a few Dell monitors that I have.

Re: Dell 2407WFPb Monitor - Bad Cap

You need to replace and install the 450V cap before going any further with troubleshooting. You may find it was the only fault and your monitor will work fine afterwards.

Re: Gateway LP2407 Power Board.

Looking at the silkscreen rectangle and the glue within I reckon the (now) vertical cap is a replacement for the original that was horizontal and flat to the board - that would explain the burn on...

Re: Dell E248WFP power cycling off/on

The seller lists the numbers for the board, just compare with yours and see if they match.
I also copied his pic and then zoomed in a little, just to do a quick visual comparison.

Re: Dell E248WFP power cycling off/on

If you detail exactly what happens with your monitor after you press the Power button I can let you know if it's behaving the same as mine was. It may help to give you a more definite pointer to it...

eBay - a seller in Canada. I didn't come across a single one anywhere else after tons of searching. Here's a link to the same board up for sale right now -

Re: Samsung 50 Plasma donated to me.

Re: DVI to HDMI

You need a Graphics card that has HDMI or DisplayPort connectors to have sound output through the relevant HDMI or DP cable. Otherwise you will have to run a separate audio cable from the PC to TV.

Re: Dell 2007WFP Constant On/Off

Sorry about the late reply.

Yep, you're nearly there, but whilst heating each joint add a small amount of fresh solder. Let us know where you're up to with the monitor now.
