You will need to provide the number from the PCB location to identify the parts that are needed. Service manuals are available for each model of consumer electronics you buy. You can buy the original manual from Samsung or download a PDF of it from web sites that sell copies. You will find the exact parts needed listed there. You will probably find you need more than those two parts, as usually a semiconductor will short and then some part will smoke under the stress. If you provide the parts id (usually in white silkscreen on the PCB) I can dig the part description for you.
Good luck

I have two 260X3 MK11 amps, they stopped working they are 8 years old

Check fuser, power supply filters, and all electrolytic capacitors, look at the top of these caps for swelling check for dry solder on the circuit boards, check output transistors and scorched resistors

Start up red light flash to green and back to red,will start after 5min of trying

Hello, how you describe it hits of the power supply voltage, usually indicates that capacitor electrolytes broken, their job to filter the port voltages of power supply. Sometimes the swelling can be seen at the top of capacitors. To remove them from the board soldering equipment is required. Absorbing tin, tin. While replacing the capacitors is important bring them to table under the correct polarity. Make sure the correct value of the container and size of voltage that marked on the capacitors . If its too complex to repair the power supply. Should replace the entire power supply. Worthwhile to review the level and stability of the exit voltage of the power supply before buying. Good luck!

Toshiba 50hpx95 made popping noise then went black, now power light is blinking red. wont turn on

Hi, It sounds like you have an electrolytic capacitor that blew up( can be a bit noisy ) it'll more than likely be in the power supply section somewhere-it's not totally dead hence the blinking light ( which is a fault indication ) The bad component should be visible by possible signs of swelling on the top,( silver colored) a rubber seal on bottom being pushed down around the two metal leads near the circuit board , or even some brown discoloration around the faulty component/s,( it does not have to be a capacitor) I have heard integrated circuits pop before ( they will almost always leave a smoke stain near where it occurred ) also there may actually be a small hole in the faulty part. I hope this helps, Make sure unit is unplugged before servicing, good luck, Prodzilla

Smoke omited from the back of the 22" gateway

Usually when you see smoke it means that the components has fried. Seeing that the monitor doesn't work anymore I'd say it is fried. You can however have it checked out by a PC technition and find out which internal parts need replacing but this might cost a bunch. If you do diagnose which parts have fried then you can head over to to order some spares.

Hello my samsung lcd tv wont come off stand by the red light constantly flashes

The most common problem with the Samsung causing that symptom are filter capacitors failing in power supply. If your able to solder you can remove the back and the power supply is generally in the center of the tv. The capacitors usually will swell up out the top easy to spot. Repairing yourself depends on your ability to solder. Make sure set is unplugged and replace capacitor with equivalents.

Smoke from rear of tv

I wouldn't turn it on either. Not needed, it won't work anyways, just cause more problems. You will need to have the rear panel removed and observe for shorted wires, burnt or swelled capacitors and likely a faulty power supply aka high voltage transformer

My 43" plasma tv wont turn on. I unplug the unit and plug it back in then try to tur it on. The light turns green as if it is going to turn on then you hear a click from inside the unit and it never comes...

Your power supply or high voltage transformer is shot. Both are extremely common especially in newer devices. You can test with an ohmmeter to find the faulty component or capacitor. The capacitors in the power supply overheat, swell up, and burn out You can get parts and manual from

Table saw starts slow and the stops

Sounds like the run capacitor has given up. Or, maybe the worst is it overheated and burned the motor winding. You'll probably have to take it apart. If there is a smoked capacitor, that's probably the one you should replace. If the winding is scorched, might as well get a new motor. If both are the case, then replace the capacitor before you give up on the winding.
