  • Re: Monster Power HTS 5100 MKII Power Center

    Check R27 also. Looks like 220 ohm red red brown. Looks stressed.

  • Re: XBOX One Power Brick Repair

    @Leeroy89: I think those 2 mosfets are same, and operate in push-pull configuration. If you can read the one at left side, then I think you can find datasheet and replacement for the one on the right. In my power supply, I could not sourse exact replacement, so I replaced both as matched pair with new MOSFETS of equal or better ratings. If I recall, they are low voltage, high amperage MOSFETs and I may have ended up pulling some off an old P4 PC motherboard.

    Usually power supply won't do anything if those transistors are shorted, so if...

  • Re: Monster Power HTS 5100 MKII Power Center

    Check your soldering on the burnt trace repairs. Some of those re-soldered connections look a little close for me from the photos. Also, check ALL diodes for shorts. Not sure what happened, but any silicon rectifiers may have experienced over-voltage and may be shorted even if they don't look bad. Also, check the heat sink mounted ICs for shorts between pins in any combination. Sometimes if it is a diode, pins 1-3 are same and may measure 0 ohms which is ok. Check pins 1-2 and 2-3. One is a 7805 5V regulator and should not have shorts...

  • Re: Samsung 245BW Not Powering Up

    Check the white capacitor next to bridge rectifier with markings 2J 684J 460S (in the photo posted by BudM) - I think this cap fails internally and you may notice a small almost imperceptible bulge on one side if it is failed. 460V. I think I replaced this failed cap on similar designed power supplied from DongYang power supplies.

  • Re: Samsung UN60EH6003F, no picture, no T Con board, boot loop, etc.

    I had this TV a few years ago. TV would turn on with backlights, but no video. Wiggling cables, or detaching and reattaching cables didn't cause any flicker of screen (which I was expecting if there is at least some functionality of TCONN).

    Replacing the TCONN with an exact same version for my TV solved my problem, but I wanted to know what the issue with my original TCONN was.

    My research led me to a bad IC7100 that may be a common problem on these 60" TCONNs. I think it was ISL98602....

  • Re: Samsung UN65NU6900F - Sound and backlight but no picture

    I have same TV. UN65NU6900F. Terrible TV. Most likely a bad panel. covering clock lines may or may not work. you will need to remove the metal covers at bottom of screen and inspect the scalar boards at bottom of panel. There are 4 I think. Call them 1,2,3,4 from left to right as viewed from rear.

    They are connected to each other with small ribbon flex cables. 1 to 2, and 3 to 4. #2 and 3 connect to to TCONN as you have seen.

    On my TV, I would get backlights and no image at all times. some rebooting...

  • Re: LG 50PK950 - Turning off after 15 Minutes

    The last photo of the bottom side of the power supply definitely shows bad solder connections on the large transformers T901 and T902. For sure the upper rightmost pin on each transformer needs to be resoldered. Resolder all pins to be sure. USE FLUX. And I'm talking about the large blue/yellow transformers in upper center of power supply board.

    You should also inspect and resolder any ICs or mosfets or diodes mounted to the large heat sinks since they might need attention.

    For now I would focus on the visibly...

  • Re: PORSCHE 928 Resistor Pack - Need Help

    Oh, sorry I didn't mean to confuse you. I didn't mean to imply that any old resistor pack from an 80s or 90s GM car would work in place of your Porsche resistor pack.

    I meant that you could get various diameters and coils of nichrome resistive wires from one of those GM parts to repair your Porsche one. I definitely recommend repairing your existing one.

    I don't know what the original one looked like but prominent loops are necessary for cooling of the coils as air passes over them. If your fix works, then thats...

  • Re: Bad Panel in Sony Bravia X850G



    Do not give up. I have repaired both LG (more common), and Samsung 4K TV with this tape method. On the samsung, I had the hardest time. Lots of trial and error. While covering all the clock lines may have stopped your jittery or double image, one or more of those lines may need to be "uncovered" to restore correct picture.

    In my case, TV would be backlights with black screen only, no image. I taped over like 10-15 lines not knowing what they did, or how. Once the picture came back on, I knew I was in luck....

  • Re: Black screen after reattaching COF, purple bars without it.



    Hi unimatrix93:

    I have performed this exact repair as you when I had a COF ribbon cable become detached from buffer board (also on a philips LCD panel, but due to an accident by a slight tug on the board)

    You may have some pins making connection, and some pins not making connection, or accidental solder bridging between adjacent pins.

    My advice it to detach the flex cable, and try re-soldering.

    USE LOTS OF FLUX, FRESH SOLDER, and VERY FINE SOLDER TIP....

  • Re: LG 50PK950 - Turning off after 15 Minutes

    I agree with Diah:

    If your large white ceramic resistors on the upper right corner of the power supply are not "open", then your problem is likely cracked or intermittent solder connections on the yellow jacket transformers.

    Just repaired a LG 50PK250 that had your same problem - would turn on and work for a bit then turn off, or would click without turning on. The problem was identified under magnifying glass as bad solder connections to the large yellow-jacket transformers.

    Re-touch...

  • Re: PORSCHE 928 Resistor Pack - Need Help

    Honestly, While the others have provided some good helpful advice, don't waste your time looking for exact nichrome wires or trying to order spools of expensive stuff.

    Go to an autowrecker and look for any 1980's or early 1990's GM vehicle. They usually have a nichrome wire resistor pack in the heater core fan box located under the hood on the firewall. only need to remove 2 screws.

    These usually never fail and you will likely find a very close match of resistance, coil size, and resistance to make a reasonable...

  • Re: Panasonic P50S30 SC board pins 1-3 Short

    Pin 1-3 of what? What connector are you referring to?

    This TV has common failure of SC board. I implore you to search this model TC-P50S30 as well as others such as TC-P50ST30 and TC-P50G30 and TC-P50GT30 as these solutions have been posted many times.

    I have no doubt your solution will be to test ALL the IGBTs, specifically [Q401, Q402, Q403], [Q421, Q422, Q423], [Q621, Q622, Q623]. Don't worry about the diodes marked with a "D". They are almost never the problem.

  • Re: Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA



    I think it's fine. You would know if it was shorted - will read as a short, possibly even look damaged or have black soot around it.



    Good point. The short across the bridge rectifier could be shorted bridge rectifier, or mosfet, or both. A short in either one would take out the fuse. This is different than an external high voltage surge that would take out the surge suppressor.

    Either way, you have some shorted component to remove. 3 pin mosfet might be easier than 4 pin rectifier, but don't...

  • Re: Hisense 55H6B Blue tint

    Yes, please post photos of YOUR ACTUAL TV.

    Failing LEDs can have degraded phosphors that emit a blueish light, but also a problem in LVDS signal cable can cause a blue "push" which causes more gain to blue signal than red or green signals and yield similar issue. Hard to know which it is without some nice clear photos of images that should have easy to discern white areas. Try a news channel feed - it will have people's faces and usually white text that might help people see the issue

  • Re: Samsung UN50NU6900FXZA

    If the fuse is open, be sure to test the 4 pin bridge rectifier near the main fuse for shorts. Test all pin combinations (pins 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 2-3, 2-4, 3-4, etc). It's mounted on one of the heat sinks.

    If this rectifier blows, it can take out the fuse and mosfet.

    Also, check the surge arrester directly beside the fuse (black heat shrink over round coin sized arrester (also called a transient voltage surge suppressor TVSS). Should measure high/infinite resistance if ok. If it experienced an over-voltage and conducted, it will take...

  • Re: Eeprom dump thread!



    Hi lotas:

    My 32" RCA model RLED3216A is now working after re-programming my existing EEPROM IC with your "fixed" .BIN file.

    Thank you for your assistance!

    When you "cut off the tail", what does deleting this information do? In the "fixed" file, it looks like you deleted everything including and after offset 0018F504h? How did you determine where to delete the remainder of data?

    This offset is certainly specific to this file and may not apply to other...

  • Re: Eeprom dump thread!

    Hi lotas:

    Here is SPI flash dump from 32" RCA RLED3216A. Mainboard is CV318H-X with MSD3391DS processor. The EEPROM at position U10 is Winbond W25Q16V.

    The TV turns on, displays the RCA logo, then screen flashes entirely green for a split second, then clearly shows the channel number 2-0 in upper corner with static on screen (it is not connected to antenna), then resets itself continuously.

    Please have a look at it and let me know if you can assist....

  • Re: Sony Bravia KDL 40LX900 red picture

    Hi - I had similar red push problem on an LG TV a few years ago. The problem was in my LVDS differential signal path.

    The LVDS cable was ok. But measurements of small components in each differential signal pair on the mainboard indicated that a small component (a resistor I think) showed that one signal line had a very different value than all of the others. I replaced this part and the TV worked perfectly. it was either a 0 ohm or 100 ohm smd resistor. Sometimes the part is not a discrete single component, but has both traces...
