Tv capacitor i need to find a replacement capacitor for my tv control board. i have the smaller capacitors but i need the large one that rarely goes bad but lucky me i need it. here is a full description. its made by CapXon 150uf 450volt GL105c temp. rateing. other markings are C628 VENT. the measurements are as follows. length is 1.625 inches or 41.27 MM. X diameter is 0.75 inches or 19.05MM. standard measurements are length1.5/8 inch X diameter 3/4 inches. i used online conversion table to convert to decimals and then to MMs. hopefuly the measurements are correct. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS RARE CAPACITOR? i have searched on all the major sites as far i know. DESPERATE PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

The TV itself measures 31.5 x 23.7 x 9.9 inches (WxHxD) with included stand. You want to make sure you have at least 4 inches of clearance for airflow on top of those dimensions.

The capacitors for 2533,2540,2541,and 2508 should be replaced. They are all 100uf 16v surface capacitors. Those capacitors are sold on

SOURCE: capacitor size

Sure- that's the maximum rating. In fact, if Polaroid had used 35v rated caps in the first place, we probably wouldn't all be replacing them.

BTW another replacement that worked perfectly here.

The bad capacitors in this set are usually NOT on the power supply--they are on the other (logic) board. You will find several bulging capacitors there. Replace em all....

Where is capacitor located on TV

There are several.
You should be identifying the four large components
- Power board
- Logic board
- Timing Control (TCON) board
- LED inverter driver board

99% the capacitors you are looking to identify for a power related issue on the power board.

Black screen with sound

You Tv have problem with the backlight inverter board. This type of complaint can occur under two circumstances.
1.Faulty electrolytic capacitor in the power supply board
2. The back light inverter board.

If you have knowledge in electronics then check the power supply for any faulty or budged electrolytic capacitor. Have adde the picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor how it will look like. check the link. faulty capacitor .

If the are no such faulty electrolytic capacitor then you have to replace the back light inverter board. There is no repair possible with inverter board because its spares are rarely available.

You have didn't mention any model number of your tv. so its not possible to add the exact picture of the inverter board.

Loud pop then no picture

The power supply regulator board inside your TV is fauty. The 'pop' sound you heard will be due to capacitor breakege. In the power supply board, there are large filter capacitors, to smooh the rectifed AC voltage. If there is any rise in AC voltage, above the normal voltage capacity of the fulter capcitors, it will burst ofr, or get leaked with a 'pop' sound. You have to open your tV to view this. Look at the power regulator board, which can be easly located, as power chord goes direltly to it after a filter circuit. It will have three or more large bulky capacitors, and these are the main filter capacitors. Repairing this board must be done with care, as this is a dangerous board to touch because most of the components in this board will be live and touch it will be fatal. In most cases it will be best to replace the board as a card basis. OK

Power source out

You will need to inspect the power supply. The chances are real good you have bad capacitors in the power supply. I would estimate there will be 5 capacitors that will be replaced. You may change them all, which is best. Some capacitors will check good when they are not. The power supply will be the smaller of the two boards inside this TV. It is also the easiest to pull out. You may use a capacitor checker to locate the bad caps. This is know as an ESR meter. Once again, it may show a good cap when it may in fact be a bad one. This is rare of course, but I have been there. Please replace all caps in the power supply board. If there is a good capacitor it will be the 400 volt 100Mf (Largest capacitor in the power supply) that is fine! Thanks for asking and show all hands of support.

"I have a rarely used Magnavox 15MF400T/37 Series


first, make sure the Tv is correctly plugged into the wall. You can try another outlet. If that doesn't work, then your Tv is certainly having a power problem.

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your TV not to power on.

All these can be checked on the power supply board.......

But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes).

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like ""(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.......

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.
If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

Yours sincerely.

There are two capacitors on the power supply that needs changing, If you take off the back of the set the power supply is the large center board, look near the white connector the goes from the PS to the main board assembly, there are few Capacitors here the bad ones will look Puffy on the top of them. Replace them with the same values but higher voltage the norm values are 1000uf rated at 10 volts replace them with 1000uf rated at 16 volts, (Note the capacitors are polarized Neg and Pos this should be printed on the board if after you take one out, note the bold band on the board and on the Capacitor this is where the neg side of the cap goes other is the Posistive side. Replace them the same way they were installed this is important for your safety and the televisions proper operation.

The most likely failure is the main power supply. You may be able to identify it with the following instructions:
Unplug your set overnight to allow potentially hazardous voltages to discharge, remove the back panel of the set so you can see the guts.
Look for a smaller board with larger parts on it; some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like and relatively large (chokes and transformers).
You should also see a relationship between the board and the incoming AC.
Check the board for a label or if not present, a stamped-on number.
Call the manufacturer's service center with your TV model number and the number found on that board and inquire about repair/replacement costs; if both are offered, they won't be that much different.
If you must buy a new board, don't dispose of the failed one as there are smaller companies that can repair it for less than the mfr. and then keep it as a spare as this problem will likely arise again.

Unfortunately, the Magnavox name is owned by the Japanese Funai company which is known for poorly designed and not very reliable products.
