I had the same problem described here and read that you can bang the camera as you power it on. I banged my DSC-W50 while powering up, at first lightly with increasing strength each time. It started working after the 3rd impact.

NO PROBLEM. RIGHT NOW YOUR DSC-W50 IS COMPATIBLE WITH MAC OS9.1 AND MAC OS 9.2.
YOU NEED TO POINT TO SONY-eSUPPORT DSC-W50-SOFTWAREUPDATES AND DRIVERS.

THIS SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. IF NOT, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217 AND I WILL DO SOME MORE CHECKING ON THIS SITE. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK! JUST A QUESTION- AREN'T THESE TWO OF THE OLDER MAC OS SYSTEMS? I THOUGHT THEY WERE USING LEOPARD AND 10.0? THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES LISTED SO FAR.

Great explaination.

I tried this reset, but the error came back. Read in other posts that it is a "flash capacitor" problem.

Hi!
It's a flash error. Could be flash fuse or flash board. If you have a multimeter and you're ready to open it, contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com or contact your local Sony service center.
I work in a Sony service center.

Anyone who know what is the size of 2 big capacitors on the board of R92U-LD3 ,256MB D33053 ATI AGP graphic card


First.
By the "size" you refer to... I assume you mean the Value's of the Capacitor.
These are written on the Capacitor as Voltage and uF.
The "size" of an Electrolytic Capacitor depends on the voltage & micro farads(uF) it is storing. (Like a Battery)
You can always add more uF and the voltage rating can be more (but not less).
Does the Cap have signs of leakage around the leads or does it have a Bulge in the top of the can. If so, it's probably bad.
The Electrolytic Cap's wires are marked positive & negative. (Negative is marked down one side).
Do not swap the polarity + - of the cap or it can blow.

The Radeon Graphics Card in a computer would run on probably 5v for logic for circuit boards & 12v for hard drives etc. No more than 12v DC max. So you can replace with a 16v replacement electrolytic Cap. But would be easy to check across the Cap with a voltmeter to find out.
Always buy a Cap with slightly higher voltage rating than the circuit it is going in to.
If it's large and attached to the main power input then it will probably be around 1000uf to 2000uf. The voltage and uF are written on the Cap body.
You can't hurt the electronics (in a power supply circuit) by adding more Capacitance.
Large Electrolytic Cap's are used to remove noise ripple from the power supply. They smooth it out. More Capacity = less ripple.
Because Electrolytic Cap's usually fail as open circuit and loose capacitance it's easy to attach another Cap in Parallel over the bad one. If so...
For troubleshooting purposes, you can leave the current Cap in place and attache a couple of wires of say 1-2 inches. Use coloured wire to keep the polarity correct. Attach 1000uf 16v Cap to wire ends and run the device to see if it's working OK.
Hope all this Helps

If i replace my yamaha crossover capacitor, what will be the consequences


The capacitor determines the cutoff frequency of the filter used to either block or pass frequencies above or below the intended design point. Generally, electrolytic capacitors are used for this, due to their capacity for a given size. electrolytic capacitors are manufactured with two foil plates separated by a gauze soaked in electrolyte compound. This electrolyte compound forms a one molecule thick insulation layer. If this electrolyte dries up, the cap will tend to fail, either short or open, usually short. Because the insulation so thn, it is very much affected by the applied voltage (usually DC). Most electrolytic capacitors are used to block DC. these capacitors are usually pretty sensitive to the applied voltage. Most electrolytic capacitors have a WVDC rating, which stands for Woirking Voltage Direct Current. The higher the WVDC rating, the largewr the capacitor for a given capacitance. Also, these capacitors have a very wide tolerance because of this. Typically, this tolerance is +10%/-80%. This rating would indicate that at close to the WVDC rating, the capacitor will be within 10% of its rating. If the capacitor is used in a circuit where the WVDC rating is much higher than the circuit voltage, their will not be enough bias voltage to form the one molecule thick dielectric (insulation) needed for the rated capacitance. So, if the capacitor is rated for 100WVDC and is used in a circuit that only has 40 volts, the effective capacitance will be much lower, and therefor, the crossover frequency would be affected. If the crossover filter is a high pass, then you would risk damage by allowing too much low frequency content to get to the mid/high frequency driver(s). For a low pass configuration, too much high frequency material would get to the woofer, which might affect imaging, but should not damage the driver. Also, electrolytic capacitors come in many varieties. Almost all of them are polarized, meaning that the terminals are marked plus and minus. Capacitors for crossovers are not typically polarized. Here is a link to some non polarized electrolytic caps:
http://www.parts-express.com/term/crossover-caps?c=293,1385

Most audio enthusiasts prefer the sound of polypropylene, polycarbonate or polystyrene capacitors over aluminum electrolytic caps, which also have the advantage of not drying out over time, so they last longer. Also, aluminum electrolytics tend to fail if they do not have a bias voltage applied for a long time. Here is a link to some film cpas for crossovers:

Then I suggest replace them.

I do not know what C7 capacitor is, nor the H7 designation you stated.
C7 would suggest Capacitor number 7, to me.
H7 would suggest a different electronic component.

If it is just capacitor replacement, and you have the tools, knowledge, and access to the capacitors, I would say perform the repair.

Electrolytic Capacitors are the weakest link of an electronic component.
They are designed to be.

Computer engineers, and designers know this. They know that as time goes on, an electrolytic capacitor will break down. The chemical composition inside breaks down. (Electrolytic Paste)

This is why they use capacitors that are rated at twice the capability, of what is needed. As the capacitor breaks down to 50 percent good, it is still 100 percent good of what is needed.

Capacitors used on a motherboard, (Electrolytic or solid Polymer capacitors), are used as Filters, and Voltage Regulators.

The one's used as voltage regulators, are in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/616

Part of what the motherboard voltage regulator circuit does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor.

The Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean' supply of voltage, AND it must be within a VERY tight tolerance range.
Too much, or too little, and the Processor turns off. (BIOS turns it off)

Also, these particular capacitors are in a Series circuit. This means that if even ONE goes bad, the entire circuit is down.

C) http://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components/Capacitors/Aluminum-Electrolytic-Capacitors/_/N-75hqt/

(They are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors, that are used on an Intel D865GBF motherboard.

Use the information in A) above, to find the capacitor manufacturer's ratings. Voltage and Capacitance. {Microfarad}
You can match up the diameter, and length, by measuring the capacitor)

Most of the time, when the receiver is powered up, and after a few seconds, there will be a loud hum and POP from the speakers, the PROTECTOR display will flash. This does not happen every time the unit...


Hi Ted,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.com.

"Protector/Protect" is an error code for out-of-regulation condition either on the power supply board and/or on the Sound output circuitry.
I've encountered this kind of symptoms not only on Sony home audio sound system but in almost known brands and the faulty parts are the same >>>> smoothing/filter electrolytic capacitor.
This is very common most especially on older unit because the capacitor begin to dried up resulting to voltage/audio out-of-regulation. In the first stage of fault, warm up will make itself stable but it will get worst as times goes by.
This is fixable and not a costly repair because this is one of the cheapest part on the board and widely available at electronics supply and online. You must have a test instrument (capacitor checker/tester) because not all capacitor that are look physically fine is in good condition, capacitor checker will reveal its condition.
Watch the video below for more info regarding electrolytic capacitor.




(do not delete) utube.png


For efficient troubleshooting, you must know which section/board are going to repair. In your case, AC board, DC board, REAR-AMP board, and the mainboard(Sound output circuitry) are going to troubleshoot.




12_10_2011_5_25_50_am.jpg

> Check or replaced C905 on AC board - this board is where the AC power cord's directly connected.
> Check or replaced C801, C803, C804, C807, C808, C809 on DC board - this board is where the two larges electrolytic capacitor is located.
> Check all electrolytic capacitor on REAR AMP board most especially in front of IC701(UPC2581V)
> Check the electrolytic capacitor in front and at the back of IC501 and IC601 (both UPC2581V) on the mainboard.

Note : IC501, IC601, IC701 are mounted on aluminum heat sink. Concentrate first on AC and DC board.

Once you've isolated the faulty electrolytic capacitor, your unit will back to normal again.

Hope I helped you.
Rating and feedback are highly appreciated.
Have a nice day! Good luck and take care!

Hello i have a problem with a thermaltake toughpower 750 w power supply computer is restarting again and again. Can you tell me what component must be changed inside it? Thanks!


I do not recommend opening up an SMPS. Switched-Mode Power Supply.

There are Electrolytic Capacitors inside.

An Electrolytic Capacitor is designed to slowly build up a charge, then release it all at once.
[Think of a large swimming pool being slowly filled up by a garden hose, then one wall of the pool is taken down all at once.
Some cameras use an Electrolytic Capacitor in their flash unit]

Electrolytic Capacitors can hold a charge for weeks, months, sometimes over a year.
If your finger/s touch the terminals on the capacitor the charge can be released to YOU.
If your finger/s complete a circuit that one, or more capacitors are in, the charge could be released to YOU.

The shock can be BAD to FATAL.

There is a Proper method to discharge capacitors before working on an electronic unit, which I won't detail here due to safety reasons.

1) Typical construction of an SMPS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

Observing the photo to the top Right, (You can enlarge the photo by clicking on it. You can enlarge twice), note the two round blue objects marked with a B.
These are Electrolytic Capacitors.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolytic_capacitor

[Observe the second photo down on the right side of the page. The blue capacitor with 160V and 10uF marked on it, is a Radial style of capacitor design. It is also a Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor. Both leads come out of one end. {160 Volts, 10 MicroFarads]

These particular capacitors are used in the Input Stage.
They Filter the incoming AC electricity.

Note the Electrolytic Capacitors marked with an E.
These capacitors are used in the Output Stage.
They Filter the outgoing rectified Ac electricity.
(It is now DC electricity)

GENERALLY Electrolytic Capacitors are the first component to fail.

Visual identification of electrolytic capacitor failure,

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

The only method that I can safely recommend is to use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply for a test unit.
See if the problem is indeed the Power Supply.
If so replace it.

(Unless the unit is new. I would then return it)

For additional questions, or clarification to what I have stated, please post in a Comment.

Visual signs of capacitor failure,

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/

Capacitors used on a motherboard, and in a computer Power Supply, are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors. (In regards to an eMachine. Some motherboards used in PC's are Solid Capacitors)

What if the problem IS an Electrolytic Capacitor in a Power Supply?
Replace the Power Supply. Do NOT open it even unplugged from power.

Electrolytic Capacitors are designed to slowly build a charge, then release it all at once.
This can be seen in a type of camera flash.
These types of camera's use Electrolytic Capacitors in their flash unit.

[Think of a large swimming pool being filled slowly by a garden hose, then one wall of the pool is taken down all at once ]

An Electrolytic Capacitor can hold a charge for weeks, months, sometimes over a year.

If your finger/s touch the terminals on the bottom of an Electrolytic Capacitor, the charge can be released to YOU!

If your finger/s touch a circuit an Electrolytic Capacitor is in, or more than one capacitor, the charge could be released to YOU!

The shock can be Bad to Fatal.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open.
Observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Check the capacitors on the motherboard out. Observe inside the Power Supply through the ventilation holes with a flashlight.

Need guidance in replacing the Power Supply, and/or recommendations for a Power Supply, please state in a Comment. Need the Model Number of the eMachines.
Would appreciate hearing back from you.
