Question about iLO DVDR05 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

ILO DVDr05 Powersupply board down, 2200 uf (1) 1000 uf (2) all three at 10 volt, partially expanded. No power out at all. Can capacitors with same uf, but different voltage be used to replace originals ?

    I had the same problem with the 1000mF and 2200mF capacitors bad and slightly swollen on the ends. Replaced them with higher voltage 16v and 25v respectively. (That was about the highest voltage that would physically fit) and the unit is functional again.

    I have the same problem but I am not able to replace the caps because of my eyesight not being what it used to be. Is there anyway I can buy a replacement board?

As long as the voltage rating is higher, not lower, it is fine, actually better, especially since this seems to be a fairly common problem, the capacitors used may not have a high enough rating to survive transients that may occur. As long as you are replacing them, I would use a higher rating, to make it more robust.

I have a 60 inch led samsung tv that only has a black screen and no sound other than the beep when it turns on and off. I can't bring up any menu or sound except sometime a faint static but it won't turn...

Check the power board, where 120 volts enter the TV. After the fuse, there is a small high voltage transformer. And on the other side, there is a capacitor (100 uf rated at 450 volts), check for 390 volts to 400 volts DC. If you have less than 390 volts, change the capacitor. I got two capacitors from old power supplies - 150 uf and 220 uf both rated at 400 volts. I connected them in parallel and the TV is back to normal.

I have a Samsung 55inch TV model PN50A510P3F. The TV has power but when I turn it on, it take at least 30 minutes to come on. It keeps powering itself on and off until it gets a clear picture.

Samsung uses three boards on its TVs. From the back, the video card is bottom center (should not be the problem), to the left is the input board (where HDMI s, USB and a one button inferred controller for manual setup) and the power board. The boards are connected by flat cables. Check high voltage circuit, after the 120 volts AC, then the fuse, then the small high voltage transformer and on the other side of this transformer is a capacitor - 100 uf rated at 450 volts. The high voltage here should be at least 390 volts DC. Any voltage less than this, the capacitor needs to be replaced. I used two capacitors 150 uf 400 volts and 220 uf at 400 volts in parallel totaling 370 uf, and my TV came back to life.Good luck.

My Mitsubishi DLP WD-73873 model television only powers up when I press the Menu and Input buttons simultaneously. The tv also will power up by itself occasionally. Anyone having a similar problem?

  1. Yes, this happened to my Samsung. It was the high voltage circuit on the power power. The TV has a chip that check all the circuits on all three boards. When a circuit is low, then it won't turn on. I checked 380 volts at the capacitor connected to the high voltage transformer. It should have been at 390 volts. I took out the 100 uf rated at 450 volts, but only have two capacitors lying around: 150 uf and 220 uf rated at 400 v. I connected them in parallel make them 370 uf at 400 volts, and the TV is now working fine.

High voltage circuit is bad and usually is the capacitor that needs to be changed. Open up the back of the TV, and there are three boards. The one with the power cord is the power board/circuit. Change the capacitor - a 450 volt 100 uf. It should be at least 300 uf if not 400 uf at around 400 to 450 volts.. Samsung was trying to save money.

Hi, my LCD Polaroid FLM-3701 went through a power outage and now doesn't get power any more. The power led doesn't show any light. I saw a capacitor repair kit available, and four 680 uF capac

The power supply fuse should be next the the ac input plug on the power supply. It should be a long cylinder type fuse, probably a T6.3AH/250V. You will want to replace those caps ASAP

1 year old samsung 50b550 1080p 50inch plasma...working fine one minute then screen went black, audio is ok. menus do not come up either. audio changes with channels ok. Have back off, capacitors look ok,...

Samsung has three board. The power board is the one on the right and is where the 120 volts plugin. There should be only one capacitor rated at 100 uf at 450 volts. Measure this voltage - should be 390 volts. If not, change this capacitor to 350 uf with a rating of at least 400 volts (to 450 volts). I was lucky to have a old microwave and a old power supply laying around the house. I have a 120 uf and 220 uf both rated at 400 volts, and when I connected them in parallel (370 uf) and changed out the old one. The TV works fine now.

Hi all. I came across this forum after "Googling" this particular model ilo TV. (LCT27HA36) Like a lot of you, mine would not turn on. It was just like lambon48's TV. Since I could not find an answer online, I took it upon myself to solve the problem. I am a retired radio engineer, and have experience in repairing a vast assortment of electronic equipment. The problem with my TV was isolated to the power supply board. I found several capacitors to have bulged. That is, the tops were swelled outward. This usually is a sure sign the capacitor is bad. The ones that were bad were all of the 1000 uf capacitors and one 470 uf capacitor. Now these caps were rated at 16 volts and 25 volts. When I replaced them, I used 35 volt rated capacitors. These caps can be bought at Radio Shack for about $1.60 each. It cost me $10.50 to fix my TV. I recommend you having only basic knowledge of soldering to do this. Just take your time and notate how the caps are installed before you remove them.. Please make sure you install the caps properly. That you put the positive and negative legs of the capacitor in the proper holes. If your board is like mine, the positive side is marked on the circuit board. If you are hesitant on soldering, I bet you know someone who can do this for you. Good luck.

ILO DVDR05 DVD Recorder

Same problem and I'm seeing two obviously bad capacitors on the power supply card on mine, a 2200 uf and a 1000 uf. I'm thinking that's the problem, though I haven't tried replacing yet.

Unit want come on

I ordered new Capacitors for my DVD Player 2 Panisonic 1500uf 10v 105° caps and 1 Panisonic 1000uf 10v 105° cap and soldered them into the powersupply where the oviously swolen / leaking capasitors were and walla it powers up and no more high pitch noise but I can't get it to eject the cd or anything. It shows on the screen but it just says loading. My guess is it did some dammage to other components inside the machine. I suppose it was worth a shot but now I am going to toss it and get a name brand. ILO isn't in business anymore... Oh and yes I did try the reset button abov the DVI connector...
