Re: help anyone about MSI board

Re: help anyone about MSI board

Hi wonder_step!

Re: help anyone about MSI board

Well, the 3,3V can deliver quite a big amount of current so even if the linear regulator (2SC5001) is set to 2,5 it will have to dissipate a lot of power if there is a short. Can you see if there is...

Re: help anyone about MSI board

Re: TV problem

As Rainbow stated dried out caps could cause this but check for any cold solder joint around the HV transformer or in the psu, could be lots of things.
What brand model?
