Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player

Need to replace capacitor on dvd player

The problem I have is that I can only find a 470uF, 50v capacitor at my local electronics store, whereas, the capacitor that needs replacing was a 1000uF, 10v capacitor, will the new capacitor work at only 470uF? or do I need to find one that is 1000uF

    Information I found suggested I should increase the voltage to above 16v to prevent it from burning out again

Hi, you should use a capacitor with same capacitance of 1000uF, but you don't have to stick to the original voltage spec. 1000uF 10V means it can withstand 10V load. 1000uF 50V means it can hold 50V for the same capacitance. Today I fixed my friend's and for that I used 1000uF 35V from RadioShack. It perfectly works - and it's better. But you shouldn't use 1000uF 5V - by now you already know that :)

I just fixed an HP vs17x monitor that blew three 10v 1000uf capacitors, I replaced them with three 16v 1000uf capacitors and the monitor is up and running and I am using the monitor as I type this response. I'll also agree with Changgull's response 100%.

   You must replace the capacitor by the same vale of 1000uf along with same voltage. The value you are saying is commen capacitor but if you dont find, then you can get it from computer chasis or any junk store where the junk moniters can find.
Thanks for using fixya.

When i turn on my unit it says hello. and will not do nothing , even if i turn it on & off what can i do thank you model liteon lvw 5006 dvd recorder

There is a capacitor on the power supply board that needs to be changed, if memory serves me it is a small 220uf capacitor, the recommended replacement is 470uf capacitor with a higher voltage rating.

The horizontal and vertical picture is off. the last 3 inches of the picture is displayed on the top and it looks like double vision. can this be fixed without going into a store for repair?

You have a problem on vertical deflection. If you have basic knowledge in electronics you can fix it by replacing the electrolytic capacitors (100uf/50v,470uf/50v,47uf/50 )near vertical ic. sometimes these caps becomes leaky.

Found burned capacitor, can't find a way to get part number, number on capacitor is (8.0/4.0). Is there a common fix?

I found two bulging capacitors on the PS board: 1000uF and 470uF. Also found chemical residue on the inside of the case just above the two capacitors. I replaced both and now it works.

I have a jvc av 36980, wont turn on, replaced capacitor c926, still nothing, fuse is good

Hi, I have same TV with same problem. I replaced capacitor with 1000uF 50v and it worked. I also saw another posting that replaced the SMPS (switch mode power supply) STRF6626 regulator. Radio Shack does not carry it though. I had to order one from an electronics store.

Good Luck....Kim

Miele freezer too cold -35

I've just fixed this problem with a Miele 7132S. It was a capacitor on the electronic circuit board. A very simple job to replace and cost about £2. I got the solution from another poster wonkothesane on diynot.
Note that the electronics is connected directly to the mains supply so remove the plug from the wall before you start!
The module is simple to remove: open the freezer door and under the module are three slots with catches - just push each in turn with a small screwdriver and pull the module gently forwards.

The power supply uses a 0.47uF 275V Class X2 capacitor which had gone low value so there was insufficient voltage to operate the relay. The compressor is connected to the normally closed relay contact so the freezer runs all the time.
For safety reasons it is critical that you only replace this capacitor with exactly the same specification component as you remove!

While I had the thing apart I also replaced two electrolytic capacitors in the power supply, a 100uF 50V and a 470uF 10V.

When it's turned on, the light on my Princeton monitor blinks...

I just did this capacitor replacement today after reading these posts. It worked great! I used 470uF
35volt caps from radio shack. There are three 470uF caps two right next to each other and one off by itself on the printed circuit board. The values are easily seen on the side of the capacitors. Open the monitor by removing the screws and prying the halves apart using a large straight edge screwdriver. There is a metal cover over the printed circuit board that will come loose after removing screws around its edge. There are several wire sockets that must be unplugged to allow the circuit board to be flipped over to reveal the capacitors. The board itself is held down with three screws
Once you identify the capacitors, use a fine tipped soldering pencil to melt the solder holding the capacitors in place and remove them. Position the new caps with the dark stripe matching up to the lined marks on the board, carefully apply just enough solder to each terminal to hold the caps in place. Reassemble and you're done.

470uF capacitors

The 470uF/25V Caps are in the middle of the PCB alongside of the slab-looking aluminum heatsink. You should be able to see that the tops are popped up and the glue around them is brown from overheating.
