STOP...
Dont try to repair your Power suply unless you know what your doing. They can hold enough charge in its capacitors to electrocute you.

Just remove it from P.C. take it to a computer store and say: Eh hem, I need one of these to replace this one.

Make sure its got at least the same amount if not more connectors as the original, make sure its also the right type I.E. ATX POWER SUPPLY, and I would recomend getting one a little stronger than the one you blew out, something like a 350w

Probably get one for under $80.

replace and enjoy.

Recently replaced the power supply unit in my 47LD450-UA tv. It was turning turning for a few minutes then would turn off and not come on. After replacing the power supply unit, it stayed on long en


Your original problem of failed electrolytic capacitors (common) may be the same one occurring in the replacement if it was a 'pull' from another set.
Normally, depending on the quality of the parts used, these supplies will survive for several years before failing.

If this was in fact removed from another set, it's time to return it if there was any kind of warranty.
If not, the repair cost isn't that great if you have an honest tech in your area.

Fist clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your CPU central processing unit making sure there is no moisture in the air line
dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of unforeseen problems
Test your power supply unit if the PSU units fans not working its faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function
hope this helps

I recommend you replace the switch mode power supply. These power supplies have dangerous mains voltage inside the unit and you should not try to repair if you do not have electronic knowledge.
The cost of a 500 W ATX power supply should be approx. $100.
It is not difficult to swap out the power supply, make sure you have the power connectors are the same as the old power supply.

My computer is randomly shutting down. Sometimes it will work and other times it will not. I think the processor is overheating and causing it to unexpectedly shut down. the screen goes black, the power...


Few reason for the shut down
Could be heat, electrical,

1. try cleaning all vents with compress air in order to remore dust and fuzz that can be cloging the vents.
Once this done, verify that fans works proprelly,(check air flow coming out of vents) if they dont they will need to be replace or cleaned out.

2. Check power supply unit, and battery.
Sometime power supply unit is defective, getting too hot and power output is not stable and shuts down the laptop. ( change power supply unit) check if battery hold charge. if not change battery

3. Check connections for looseness and contact

If all seems normal,and none of the mentionned point seem to be defective, the cause is deeper and would need to be looked at by a technician.

What is voltage pin layout for the connectors on power supply model dr-b300atx


I assume you are talking of the 20 or 24 pin connector plugging into the Motherboard. Is it 20 or 24? Is there a 4 pin +12v connector plug. The colors of the wires tell a story. Red is +5V Black is Ground or Return. There is Yellow and Orange and Blue and green and gray. There are SATA connections . Look in your users manual of a standard Motherboard. This will give you a pinout and voltages on these pins. Write down the voltage starting with pin 1 and add the color to simplify knowing the voltages. If you're tech savvy, break out a multimeter for absolute certainty.

AC adaptor for 32 inch Protron TV


It seems a lot of people are having problems with the Protron power supply. I’ve been able to repair all the ones I’ve seen so I’m confident I can fix them. I don’t sell the replacement power supply but I’ve heard about the ones on EBay. They seem to be a mishmash of two power supplies (12vdc and 24vdc) wired together with the proper connector. This should work but it just doesn’t sound very clean looking to me and they end up costing $150.

I’ve been charging between $50 and $100 to repair these power supplies. My recommendation would be to send me the power supply I’ll check it out and unless it’s unusually damaged it will cost $50 plus shipping to repair. If I can’t repair it I’ll return ship it and only charge for shipping.

I will guarantee the repair for 1 month. I don’t know what’s causing the power supplies to fail so I can’t guarantee it any longer than that. My feeling about the reason the Protron power supply stops working is two part; could be overheating due to lack of proper ventilation to the power supply; or the TVs power requirement is overdriving the power supply.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I repair these at my work, so here’s the shipping address:

Also, I’m set up for PayPal.
