Question about Sharper Image SO227 CD Shelf System
The system is plugged into a power outlet but ther is no display the standby light doesn't even come on, nothing works no power or sound. I love this system and it is no longer sold, is there anything that IO can do to fix the problem.
The one I troubleshot had a bad 4700 uF 25v capacitor next to the dc connector on the main pc board. this dc connector cable runs from the rear cover of unit(the rectifier board).When I power up the unit,dead,no standby lite no power.I removed all connections to cd board and just left the mmain board and display board connected.clock and standby came on,but after about two minutes the 4700uf 25v power cap started to smoke (and dmm read 12v and falling across cap).hurray that was my big clue! Replaced cap with a gang of 5 1000uf 35v nichicon electrolytes in a parallel L package formation to fit the realestate of old cap and allow cover closure.happy tunes.Unfortunatly made by cheapos who spec counterfiet electrolyte formulated caps.Watch out for "S.I." brand electrolytics.Check temp of rest of caps while running unit as this beast is chock full of them.
