Re: AC / DC ADAPTER upgrade?

Start with checking the rating of those MOSFETs that have heatsinks. Then check the transformer rating. Check the DIODEs for their ratings as well. Those are the man components of concern. I am...

Re: Help identify a Zener?

Jopat, According to Redwire prior post..."The parts are vanilla switching transistors, anything would work"...I just used parts I had on had or on other unused circuit boards :D

Re: ECH81/6AJ8 Vacuum Tube Question

So did AM get better? My thought was that you needed a nie LONG antenna for AM on those old radios! I am curious.

Re: Cheapest waterproof RF coaxial connector?

Slather on some liquid electrical tape. that stuff is GREAT. or heat shrink around the entire thing ? Where are you trying to connect at the antenna feed point?

Re: HELP: I accidentally broke a capacitor off of my motherboard...

oh and by the way. loosing ONE cap off the mobo will prob not make any difference. there is a HIGH probability that it will boot fine without it.

Re: HELP: I accidentally broke a capacitor off of my motherboard...

the easy dirty solution here is to solder a LEADED cap on there - kind of on the surface and make sure its on there pretty solid. its not pretty but it will work and provide years of service. ...

Re: SMPS Resistor confirmation

Great idea fellas! The bulb trick I have heard of before, I will give that a whirl. I see that kit on ebay and its reasonable. Thanks for all the help and suggestions! :groucho: Red and rj.

Re: SMPS Resistor confirmation

I did not put a screw since it would likely short :( I will check Q602 - do you think i can get by with R611 as 1 Ohm? I def. do not have any SUB-ohm on hand.

Re: SMPS Resistor confirmation

For the primary rectifier diodes I used what I had on hand. 1N4007 the originals are 1N539BL. The zener was 1ZB36BL. What looks like electrical tape is thermal padding I had for a big SCR since...

Re: SMPS Resistor confirmation

My next step after fixing the resistor was going to be pull the transformer (on the output side of the MOSFET) and see if does not blow the fuse.

SMPS Resistor confirmation

I have not done too much SMPS repair. The resistor in this pic looks like a 0.68 Ohm 5% value correct? It is OPEN. The zener across it is a 36V that was shorted. When did they start making SILVER...
