Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

I measured the four 470 uF capacitors on the 24 v output out of circuit with a cheap component tester:

[uF] - [ohm ESR]
430 - 0.06
437 - 0.10
439 - 0.10
437 - 0.09

I don't know... doesn't...

Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

Not sure if I did it right but I couldn't find an indication of any problem with any of the transistors.

Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

Measured the transformers, but they all have the same values.

I had a bit of trouble figuring out how to measure the mosfets. Looked up how to do it, looked up the part, but must have missed...

Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

I didn't mention the voltage since I don't know if my DMM tells me the minimum voltage reached. It says ~23 V in sync with the blinking. Otherwise it's stable at basically 23.9-24.0.

Thanks for...

Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

Well, I'm considering replacing C862-C865 (can be found by searching for "C862" in the manual) which seem responsible for 24 V, unless someone has a suggestion for a better course of action. They...

Re: Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manu

Tack fr the suggestions.

I first decided to treat it as a backlight issue, but after inspecting the tubes I could find nothing really objectionable. After measuring the 24 V going from the power...

Re: Lowering CCFL brightness increases blinking freq. -- what's that indicative of?

Thanks for the input. With that in mind I inspected the tubes (no visible problems) and measured the 24 V going from the power supply to the inverter with a DMM. The voltage seems to drop in sync...

Lowering CCFL brightness increases blinking freq. -- what's that indicative of?

Say all CCFLs have started blinking in an LCD display, so that all of them go black momentarily every 3 seconds. For a typical CCFL controller circuit in such a display, what would be the likely...

New info


Lowering the backlight brightness results in backlight blinking with higher frequency

Dell 2209wa - momentarily blinks every two seconds [ Video + Audio + Service Manual ]

Hello,

This is the second time I'm asking for advice in this forum. The first was about troubleshooting a PSU, which resulted in a successful repair. Naturally I want another fix of the Ikea...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

I decided to leave well enough alone, but thanks for the options.

A picture. The zener was a pain to wedge in under the heat sink, but it didn't break.

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

Thanks for checking in. The noise was gone, the diodes were mounted according to the symbols on the board, 85 ohms across the diode, and no visible solder bridges, but apparently I suck at soldering....

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

I did the repair, but unfortunately it didn't work. 5vsb is basically jumping around between 0 and 0.3 V now. It was an educational experiment, but I doubt I have the skill to troubleshoot this any...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

If this one will do the job then I'm ready to try:

6 V, 5 W

I couldn't find any real advantage with glass package over plastic anyway.

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

Thanks, saved me a google

I'll try and get my hands on those two and see if it powers up.

I read that the caps go bad when unpowered for a long time so I can't expect to get much value from...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

It was shorted. This is the first time I've identified a faulty component (with assistance) so I'm pretty happy about this.

Why would this happen? I guess because of heat. If this diode is the...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

Will do



I will try, although I think the crack went right through the digit. I probably have to find a better camera, or stare at it for a while longer.



Ok, thank you! Perhaps there's a...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

I also realize that some might be offended by the huge time gap. Apologies, life got in the way and then the project got put in storage after I moved.

While I would be happy to blindly "recap...

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

I had to realize I knew too little last time (didn't want to kill myself), but now I'm picking this up where I left off.

Re: Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

It's no more than 6-12 mV, and then around 90-100 mV after waiting a minute or so...



I'll have to read up a bit before answering that, and (probably)...

Help an untrained ear to identify this sound? (unplugging a Hiper Type-R 480W)

I had an old Hiper Type-R 480W that had failed years ago. It had three visibly bad caps that I replaced (2x 1000F 10 V, 2200F 10 V), but that didn't do the trick. I don't remember if it made any...
