Question about JBL PSW-D110 Speaker

1 Answer

C6 Polarity? How can you tell the polarity of the C6 replacement capacitor?  There is no polarity legend on the PCB board... The cap I have that was sent to me from JBL is a 10uF 100v Bi-polar electrolytic cap. I believe the longest stem is the + but I don't know which will correspond on the board... Any suggestions... Info?

Hi CALSunbelt

There is no polarity to be conscious of when you are using a BiPolar cap. They can be used in either direction.

Bose 20 display failed

Older Bose Lifestyle systems are prone to electrolytic capacitor failures. Replace all electrolytic capacitors on the main control board with identical uF value, equal or greater voltage rating, equal or greater temp rating. There are about a dozen on the board with at 2-3 different values. Disassembly and reassembly is straight forward. Those with capable skills in mechanical and electrical areas should find the project will take about 1-2 hours. I recommend grounding the board when working on it. Find a spot on the board where the ground is marked, and attach a jumper to a ground point. Take caution during the disassembly -- take photos, lots of plastic parts, etc. The eCaps are polarized, so be sure to check polarity as you unsolder, and install new eCaps with same polarity (+ & - ) as the old.

Once caps are replaced the voltage levels to correctly operate the display will be back to factory settings, and the display should show brightly. Good Luck!

Fail capacitors how to replace


If capacitors are electrolytic types, then they have polarity + and -, and always are a mark on the pc board and it could be marked with either the "+" symbol or "-" capacitor has a mark itself that denotes polarity also, the most common mark i have seen is "-" running from top all the way down at a side of cap, you just have to buy them same voltage and capacitance rating and install them verifying TWICE the correct polarity and you are done, Mouser electronics has a wide stock of electrolytics, but remember polarity otherwise you will get a very big pop.

Mitsubishi WD 62525 will not turn on

Just check whether any electrolytic capacitors you have changed recently have placed in reverse polarity. Electrolytic capacitors will have both (+ve) and ( -ve ) polarity, marked on them. The circuit board too will have these markings, and the legs of the capacitors must coincide with these markings. If any one among them has been placed in reverse direction, the voltage rail to which this capacitor has connected will go very low, and a short circuit indication blinking will occur. Check this first.

Toshiba 19w330db was coming on until i change acap on little board from330uf 25v put in 440uf 25v now no power

Replacing a 220Mfd capacitor with 440Mfd wond poise this problem. Just check, whether the the polarity of the repalced capacitor have been reversed. Electrolytic capacitors have both +Ve and -Ve terminals. It reversed, the capacitor will insert a short circuit, when you switch ON the set. On some occations, it will heat up and will burst out. Check this first. The polarity of electrolytic capacitors will be marked on the printed circuit board too. Check whether the markings at the printed circuit board matches with the polarity of electrolytic capacitor you have recently replaced.

How to fix the power capitors on a TV

It is eay to replace the power capacitors. Just resolder them out from the board and solder a new one in place. Make sure the polarity of the capacitor. Electrolytic capacitors will have both +ve and -- Ve polarity. It will be marked both on the capacitor and printed circuit board. Normally --Ve markings can be seen on most capacitors. Coinside this marking to the marking at the printed circuit board. If the polarity reverses, the capacitor will explode as you switch ON the set.
See the negative (--Ve) marking.

What is the size of the JBL PSW-D110 fuse?

The fuse is a 250volt 1.25 amp slow blo.
First thing I would do is check C6 to see if it is bulge or blown - regardless replace it with a 10ufd 100volt Non-polarity capacitor. If the fuse blows again unplug the blue wires from the transformer and plug in unit to an outlet. If fuse does not blow then problem is on PC board. I have a service manual for this item. Probable causes on PC board are Filter Caps, Bridge rectifier (DBA), Amplifier module, or fragments of C6 even causing shorts on board if it had blown.

I have bought C6 from MCM Electronics for under .50 cents but you have to put shrink tube on one lead and bend it back along the body and solder both leads in the board.

Good luck

It is a two terminal component, and can be replaced easly. But when you unsolder it out of the board, make sure of the polarity, ie, it is an electrolytic capacitor, and have both positive and negative polarity. This will be maked on its body, normally negative will be marked, and should be noted. When replacing it, the polarity of the new one should coincide with, otherwise it will burst out, and will be dangerous. This is the only thing to be noted when replacing an electrolytic capacitor of any type. OK.

Polk Audio PSW202 subwoofer. Replaced burnt fuse but blows the next fuse after connecting to amplifier and powering on. What else can I do?

Fuse probably went bad because either the large filer capacitors at the edge of the PCB went bad and or the final output IC mounted on the heatsink(15 pin) fried. Check the capacitors and all the semiconductor components on the board for burn marks or corrosion. You have to remove the heat sink clamp from in front of the output IC to adequately visualize its condition. In fact you might have to remove the large aluminum heatsink attached to the chassis to get a good view of the IC. If it or the heat sink clamp show signs of thermal burns you need to replace it. The IC is a TS TDA7294 mono audio amp available at Mouser Electronics. Replace the 35V 4700mF caps with 50V 4700mF caps. You will only have enough space on the top of the PCB for one of the larger caps. I mounted the other on the circuit side of the board. Note the polarity of the original caps and respect it in their replacements. The fuse is a 5 X 20 medium speed slow blow 250V 2.0A glass fuse.

Capacitor needs replaced

There are no manuals available.

There are 2 caps. One on the top and one on the bottom.
First try bottom. Take all screws from the bottom cover, take bottom cover off and there will be board/flex with one cap on it.
1. Mark polarity (+ and - ) with marker. Unsolder cap.
2. Clean whole board with brush and alcohol VERY VERY good.
3. Solder new cap.

Same problem

You don't even want to try to change the caps on the power supply board. It is a hard task for a experienced tech. The boards are soldered on both sides not to mention getting the polarity right. One mistake and you fry the board
