Diagnose control panel problem

Hi, I am pretty confident that I've narrowed down my problem to interior control board. The large capacitor on the board was "puffy" or raised. Under the advice of a repair tech that I am friendly with I replaced it with a larger, more tolerant capacitor. (I made sure to align the polarity up with the way the old one was installed.) The dryer worked ok for a very brief time and now is acting up in a different way. I get this tick, tick, tick sound coming from what seems to be in the area of the new capacitor that I installed. I'm not sure, however, if it is the cap making the ticking noise. It sounds like a metronome. Then it stops for a brief time and starts again. Wash, rinse, repeat. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Clothes dryer will start, but won't stay on when button released

Could be a number of issues really.  Motor is what I have found to be a problem, the start windings work, but the run windings wont.  Also it could be a timer causing the problems as well.  Both of these cost a bit of money to replace.  Be sure to check the door switch (not usually a problem), buit check it to be sure.  Let me know what you find out, but sure sounds like a motor issue.  If I come up with any other ideas, I will write them right to you.   Jim

 

PS Also try and check all your wiring inside to be sure something hadn't come loose.  Forgot about the whole moving thing.  Let me know if I can help you with anything else, like getting into the cabinet, etc.   Jim

SOURCE: Maytag Washing Machine Stops after wash cycle...

sounds as if you have abad contact in the timer
advance the timer to a different spin cycle and see if it spins
then bo back to where it stops
if it will spin in the other spin cycles but not where it stops the the timer will need to be changed

Where is capacitor located on TV


There are several.
You should be identifying the four large components
- Power board
- Logic board
- Timing Control (TCON) board
- LED inverter driver board

99% the capacitors you are looking to identify for a power related issue on the power board.
capacitors look like

Picture shakes for about 10-15 minutes when tv turned on initially, settles down after this and ok, is this a simple problem or is the tv on the way out?


Hi,
your fault could be either a faulty capacitor on the Power Supply Board allowing an un smoothed ripple in the voltage supplying the T-Con Board or the T-Con Board its self its a little hard to be sure. The problem will likely worsen without attention. If you are confident enough, look around the PSU Board for signs of distress on the Capacitors, "Domed Tops", "leakage at the bases, or shrinkage of the plastic sleeve covering the capacitors, all are indicative of overheated and failing capacitors.

Sound and no picture


Most likely if the is power to the device but won't turn on, or turns on the shuts itself down before it displays anything you probably have an issue with the power board, which 70-80% of the time is just bad capicators. If you know your way around a soldering iron, can also desolder parts off a board, and are smart enough to know that electrolytic capacitors are polarized and put the replacement components back in the right direction than it's a pretty cheap and easy fix. If you're intelligent enough to take the back casing off the unit and can unplug and replug harnesses back in proper locations than you can just change the entire power board. A power board is typically around $50/$75 on eBay, but that all depends on the availability of the part and location. If you're not confident to either of these things, you probably shouldn't be on this site.

Need repairs on Technics SX-PX103-M Model.


Have you had any luck with your Technics piano? I've got the same piano and Mine does not work either. No lights on the control panel, only red power light comes on. Does yours have any led lights besides the power light that come on? I've investigated and I have learned a lot from this piano. 4 main boards. Im pretty sure I've got it down to one board. Interested in selling me any boards from your Piano??

Turns off after being on for 2 mins.


Had a fair bit of experience with these

Normally the Electrolytic capacitors in the SMPS dry out.
and when you power up the tv after a while the cap gives up dropping a supply rail causing supply to shutdown turning off tv.

2 ways of fixing this:

1. Take to Local Service Agent or electronics repair shop and explain that its the capacitors (they won't think your dumb and charge you heaps!)

2. If your feeling confident power down and disconnect from wall power..
leave for a hour or so to let the main capacitors discharge.

next take off the back cover and have a look for the SMPS PCB
it should be dead centre on the back of the screen and have large heatsinks onboard..(Aluminium fin looking things).

now scan the board for any faulty capacitors. and good capacitor looks like:
bennytechkid.jpg
A Faulty Capacitor looks like but not limited to:
bennytechkid_1.jpg
You'll notice that the good capacitors are flat topped and clean
any bad capacitors will have bluged tops or there insides hanging out!
then all you need to do is de-solder and replace with new capacitors.
whole job should take about 4 hours for a beginner and about $10 worth of capacitors

hope this helps,ben

My TV will power itself off after 2 seconds. I opened it up and tested all of the fuses on the power supply board, and they were all good. I visually inspected all of the capacitors and none appeared...


You need to check and see if the VS and the VA voltages are right. There should a lable on the inside panel that let you know what the VA & VS should be reading. If those are correct then you could have a bad Y-Board.

White screen


I fixed it! It's the power supply board.

The Westinghouse LCM 22w2 has bad capacitors on the yellow power supply board. This is a common problem plaguing motherboards and LCD flatpanels that use capacitors from Taiwan. If you know how to solder, or know somebody that can, it's actually a pretty easy fix. Take out the yellow circuit board on the inside, write down the specifications for each of the capacitors (the cylindrical things) go to the electronics supply store and get the replacement capacitors. You can go over the voltage specification (not under), but keep the capacitance value matching. Replace one at a time. Go to www.badcaps.net for advice, tutorials and training on doing this. *You really should replace all the capacitors*, but the very large one next to the power plug I did leave on the board because I couldn't find a match. To my delight, the white screen of death went away and it was working as new!

I saved a ton of money fixing this, it's definitely worth learning how to solder to do this.

Flickering and Jumping Picture


The problem in your tv is not external.
The problem is in the power supplies internal filtering.
On the primary side of the power supply main board you will find
a large electrolytic capacitor very near the fuse and the primary transformer( the small one). Next to this capacitor you will find a
large 5 watt diode.( black with a silver band at one end). Next to this you will find one lone 1/4 watt resistor. This resistor in conjuction with large electrolytic capacitor is responcible for the internal filtering of the high voltage side of the board. As your unit heats up( anywhere fron 5 to 30 mins) you will notice horizontal
flickering and prior to that red or green or even purple pixelation.
Check this 1/4 watt resistor for dark discoloration and or a bad solder joint on the solder side of the board. This resistor
is directly responcible for controlling the bias current to the high voltage regulators for the 160 volts DC. At no time should you handle or troubleshoot this board with the line plug in.
Even when this board is powered down that capacitor still holds a charge for up to an hour and can knock your you know what
in your sock. If you do not feel comfortable please take the board to someone else. Hope this helps.
