Re: Help with mosfet selection for TCL power supply

Perhaps I have posted this in the wrong forum... Should I move this to the Power Supply forum? (And also add the model number to the title.)

Thanks

Re: Is this a sign of venting?

Yes, that makes sense. Something may have been wiped across them. I had not thought of that. I will replace them since they are easy to get to, and as noted, they won't cost much. ---- Thanks

Re: APC BackUPS LS-500 Schematics?

Sorry Sam_sam_sam,
I don't know what was printed on the next line on the regulator. It is all back together now, and I can't see that part. And it is not easy to get it apart.

Re: Calibrating a YiHua 939D

diff,
Yes, you are definitely right, no question about that. But.... Since it does have a calibration button on it, I'd like to know how it works. Curiosity is a curse... and a blessing. :)

Re: Airgap in soldering iron tip

I believe I may have gotten the wrong Hakko tip. Somehow I thought the T18 was the same as a 900M. But I am seeing now they are slightly different and the T18 is just a tad shorter than a 900M. Is...

Re: APC BackUPS LS-500 Schematics?

I found a regulator. It is a LM2575T. I will be tracing down the caps that are next to it.

It may be next week sometime before I have any results, but I will post what I find.
