If you have the skill to soldering, you can. Check out its capacitance value [can be noted on it printed; like 220MFD 40V or 100MFD 25V or so]. Note the capacitance value along with its voltage rating, and buy a new on of same type and size, replace it with correct polarity marked on it. Electrolytic capacitors will have both +ve and --ve polarity. If it changes [reverses] during soldering, it will burst out when you switch on the set. So be sure about the polarity. It will be marked on both capacitor and at the PWB.

No Walter
That capacitor is there for a reason.

It MUST be replaced with an electrically identical one but before doing that, I'd certainly want to know the reason why the smoke was let out of the original.

My LG55(55LD520) powers on, but no picture or sound. There was some sort of electrical disturbance that resulted in smoke coming from rear of set. What so you think the problem is? Bad board?


I believe the problem with your TV is that it has one or more bad capacitors. I had a similar problem with my TV where it would power on and there was no picture. I took the back off of the TV and found that the two bad capacitors were bulging at the top. The capacitors provide power to the light bulbs. I bought two new, better quality capacitors and replaced the bad ones with them and the TV worked immediately. If you go to you tube you'll find videos that show step by step instructions on how to perform the replacement. All that you'll need are a soldering gun and solder and the new capacitors. I bought mine at digikey.com but you may be able to get them at Radio Shack. The capacitors have the model number on them.

Smoke coming out of engine


White smoke? Coolant is getting in the cylinder and the white smoke is really steam. Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Bad news is that it needs to be replaced...good news is that the inline 6 cylinder engine is one of the easier head gaskets to replace. I've never replaced a head gasket but did it on my Cherokee just three months ago. If you tag your parts and pay attention how they are taken off you can do it. The other option is to replace the engine as they are pretty cheap to get. Good luck.

Boss 2500GT mono block car amp white smoke after 5 mins


I'm not familiar with this particular model but this appears to be the filter inductor in a class D amp. If I had to guess, the white smoke is from the filter capacitors connected to this inductor.

You should check with Boss to see if it's available. If it's not, you can re-wind it. You'll need to measure the diameter of the wire to determine its gauge.

If the filter caps vented, you'll have to replace those also.
