Question about Sony KP-48S75 48" Rear Projection Television
I have a 1998 projection that worked fine until now. The screen had color bands momentarily and went off completely. Looking inside, it is smoking at C514 - a small round component. It does this as soon as the set is plugged in - without having to turn on the power. Having experience with electronics, can someone give instructions on what this is and what parts/steps are neeed for me to repair it? I don't want to haul it to a repair shop to have them charge hundreds for a 10 year old set. Thanks
The component you are talking about is not a diode, it is a capacitor, and if it is burning it has shorted, which means that it needs to be replaced. You will need a schematic and a multimeter. Now since you all thought that this component was anything but a capacitor, I would not suggest that you attempt repairs on your own, because this section is dangerous, and can kill you if you are not careful. I would suggest that all of you get a qualified TV technician to examine your sets and affect repairs on it.
I hope this helps,
