Capio Power supply Question

You stated that you repaired 15 Neoware clients by changing the 470u 25v volt cap in the output end of the power supply. The only one I see similar on my power supply is the 470u 16v cap at the position marked C10, adjacent to the output power lines to the main board. Is that the one?

The ThinClient's (neoware) don't take much power, like LCD monitors. I have replaced countless 470uF caps in LCD's, so I'll bet it's the one. A possible test, however, is to desolder it, take a multimeter set to measure resistance, and connect the leads of the meter to the leads of the capacitor. Watch the multimeter screen; it will go up in resistance if the cap even works and holds a charge. You'll want the multimeter on the highest resistance test setting, and it will go up fast, so be watching. You will have to short the cap in between multipul tests to get an accurate reading.

Hipro power led only blinking


Same as the other question on here...
The caps are between the big output transformer and the small smoothing one. I've changed these on multiple PSUs of this type (because they are really expensive) and they work afterwards.
You do have to take into account that it is a repaired PSU afterwards so you can't guarantee to your client that it is perfect.
The PSU is probably broken. I've had a few of these with the 2 100uF caps failed. I blame it on cap rot. it's too much of a coincidence otherwise. If the the green light goes lower in tone then switches to amber or red it's the PSU failed.
I had huge problems with one clients RAID because of one of these PSUs failing, even though there were two installed.

Ultra 750 watt power supply ,+12 dc volt output showing ac component of 1.5 to 2.7 volts on new unused ps


Is this with or without a load?
There is always some ripple on the DC output of a switching mode power supply, and the less the load, the greater the ripple.
Measure the power supply under full load, that's the real test!

The red lightcomes on when i hook up things to it when nothin is hooked up its green


Usually, this indicates an overload condition. I have a Pyramid 35 amp supply that has no green light but uit does have a red light and an irritating little beeper that the instruction book says is activiated when power draw approaches 90% of rated output. (Why not call it a 30 amp supply if you can't use the full 35???) Enough editorializing. You don't say if the supply actually works, just that the light changes color. If it doesn't work at all, I would start with checking the diode bridge for a blown or leaking diode. If one is bad, it can output enough to drive an LED but fail anything else. If these are good, check the filter capacitor. If this is bad, the hum could concievably confuse the regulator circuit. Next, I would check what ever voltage regulator it has in it. I can't comment on specifics as there are many schemes that can be used. My unit, for example, is like a mouse driving an elephant. It has a small 723 regulator IC, (Aprox. 100ma output), controling 4 large TO-3 pass transistors driven by a 36 volt 40 amp transformer to boil it all down to an adjustable 12 to 15 volts.
The bottom line is without knowing if the unit is puting out or not and not having it in my hand to look at, this is the best I can do. I hope it helps.
Good luck.

How do I check my bestec atx-250-12e power supply with volt meter


It's hard to do with a volt meter. What you would be better off doing is either ordering a cheap power supply tester online, and test yourself with that, or take out the power supply and take it to your local pc repair shop and ask them to check it for you. There are 12V outputs, 5V outputs and 3.5V outputs, and any of them could be bad, so that is why I say using a voltmeter is harder than using an actual power supply tester.
Let me know if this solves your problem.

Latitude D505


Just repaired a laptop with the same symptoms:
Won't charge the battery, won't power from AC.
Also if you power the AC adapter when not connected to laptop you get green power LED on the adapter. When you plug it in the laptop the green power LED immediately goes out.

Opened it up and found SO-8 P-ch mosfet by the DC input socket. Source (pins1,2,3) is connected to the inner barrel (+19.5V), Gate 4 gets driven low, applying the input to the Drain. (pins 5,6,7,8) On my board the drain was short to GND. Applying power directly to the Drain via a current limited bench PSU (set 1A limit) showed a couple of volts.

Placing a finger on the opposite side of the board revealed a SMT ceramic cap getting hot.
CP13 I think. Opposite side to the power connector, almost under it. I would guess at 1206 or slightly larger and there is an 0402 cap just next to its bottom pad at 90 degrees to it. Cap was glued before soldering so had to flow both sides at the same time with a soldering iron and force off. Would likely have been 1uF or bigger 25V. Removal restored operation. Runs OK without but would suggest putting something in there 0.1uF 1206 50V, perhaps a couple stacked ?

BTW you have to strip down everything and remove the main board to get to the cap :-(

Hope this info is of use....
