Is the fuse located before or after the main power switch?

If the answer is before the main switch, then maybe you should also check the main power switch (dirty contacts - these may cause insufficent voltages from the power supply).

Note that the (electrolytic) capacitors can be faulty but will not have visible damage, so check the DC voltages on the power supply output and try to replace the associated capacitors if the voltages seem to be too low (usually, there will be 12 and 5 volts outputs, sometimes a 3 volt output on some brands/models).

If it turns out that these voltages are not present at all, then there may be damage to the transformer driver IC (i'm assuming this is a switching power suply) - see if there is any AC voltage present at the secondary terminals of the transformer, if there is none, then the primary is most likely not being driven by the 110 V and this points to the driver IC as the possible cause. It may also be some other component in the primary section, but you said you've checked them out, so i don't know what else to suggest.

Hope you can fix it.

How to solve NO POWER PROBLEM in DVD622


DVD power supply repair tips bridge-rectifier-repair.jpg?w=580&h=435
This demonstration fixes the power supply of a DVD player, but the skills transcend this one application. [Alan] walks us through the process of repairing a power supply (translated) on a simple consumer electronics unit.
Obviously this starts by cracking open the dead device and verifying that the culprit is the power supply. [Alan] then removes that board from the chassis and gets down to work with a visual inspection. He's got several images which illustrate things to look for; blistered electrolytic capacitors, cracked solder joins, scorch marks, etc. In his case there's obviously a burnt out fuse, but that merely protects the hardware from further damage, it's not the cause. Next he examines the diodes of the bridge rectifier. These need to be removed from the system to do so, which he accomplishes by clipping one end of each as seen above. He found that two diodes on one side of the bridge had broken down. After replacing them he tries a new fuse which immediately burns out. But a quick swap of the capacitors and he gets the thing back up and running.

CH-DVD 320-won't come on at all. Used to work fine. Now won't come on, it's dead.


Hi,
If your unit has no led light lit on the front panel, this is an indication that the power supply board is not working(dead).

First thing to check is the basic, I'm assuming that your outlet is live. Check the continuity of the power cord using the multimeter. Sometimes it has an internal broken wire due to frequent pulling and bending. If the power cord is good, open the top cover of the unit and check the internal fuse. Sometimes due to voltage surge and aging, fuse fail. If this is the case, replacing with same current(ampere) ratings will cure the problem.

Let me know if the fuse is intact or blow again after the replacement to determine the next steps.

Hi, I have recieved a used laptop from a friend.It is an Acer Aspire 1690LCi ZL3. The unit powers on,battery is good,DVD drive opens but the screen is dead.Please help. Sam


A few things to try. First turn on the unit, and after it seems to have booted up (like at a windows login or something), take a flashlight and in a darkened room shine it on the screen. If you can see a picture, it means your backlight is out. Go on ebay or elsewhere online and look for an acer aspire 1690LCi backlight. Then open up your screen and replace it (there should be tutorials online for this). If you don't see an image, your screen maybe be out or have more serious problems (video card, LCD dead, etc.).

Dead


I think that either the internal glass fuse is blown if it is replace with one of the same rating otherwise there is a fault on the power supply board. Good luck.

Problem


If the AC power source (outlet) is ok and the line cord and fuse are ok but the unit is completely dead, you may have a problem with the internal switching power supply.

Locate the switching power supply and see if there is a fuse on its circuit board.

Completely dead units are typically caused by a failure in the power supply section.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
