Compatible part needed for 4407-BESK4H

My laptop's main board model is EAL50 and a local repairer confirms the fault is the voltage regulator with part number 4407-BESK4H but that part is not listed anywhere so I can't get a replacement or any details to help work out what would be a valid alternative.
No replacement main board is available either so i need to fix this one.
Where do I look to find what part I need?

    I wanted to avoid dismantling the machine again until I had the required part, but I guess its necessary...

    Pic1 shows the main board with the parts' location boxed (top left of image).

    Pic 2 is as close and clear as my camera gets, but the stamp is still not visible.

    The parts are DIL 8 pin chips about 6mm long and 5mm wide. There are 2 of them (I didn't realise and don't which is faulty so I guess I'll be replacing both :(

    There is not much room for numbers. There is a logo (see pic 3) and 4407 on the top line then BESK4H on the line below. These 2 lines of print fill the top surface of the chip.

    So, anyone know what these chips are and what I can replace them with?

    I have a power-dead HP Pavillion laptop with two voltage regulators. 4407-CA714U Mine are working and they take in 18.68 volts and output 18.5 volts. You could try bypassing yours with an external regulated power supply set to 18.5 volts and see if that fixes your problem.

This is AO4407. You can replace it by any 30V P-Channel MOSFET, for example FDS4435 or other.

The regulator is not likely to be unique to the laptop, but that number doesn't mean much. Can you post a picture of the part or list the specific numbers on the part itself?

My tv has had start up issues - sound but no picture on initial startup. After multiple on off cycles it usually starts. Yesterday it would not turn on at all.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Check its main power supply regulator's output voltages. If main supply output from it is more than normal, this kind of fault can occur. [Over-voltage / Under-voltage] problem. The main system control IC in the TV will detect this condition, and will shut the TV Off. The best practice is to replace all the electrolytic capacitors at the main power supply regulator board.

No power for AKAI PT5250A

This is a main power regulator board fault. Check it. If you are not handy with high-voltage circuit board repair, ever attempt to continue, because, some capacitors at the power supply regulator board are dangerous to touch, even after you have unplugged the TV from AC mains supply line. They will have storage charge, that you could suffer by severe electric shock.

No Vertical Sync is the fault. This is a main board fault. The main board might need replacement. But before confirming, check all the voltages comes to the main board from the power regulator board. If you wish to know more about the voltages and their sources, check this link.

It seems that the main board, the program controller unit is a suspect and to confirm you need to remove the customer control panel and check . Check the +5 to the processor, check the connectors and the power supply, check for leak in the storage electronic capacitors, check for faulty voltage to the control board.- check rectifier and regulators.
If not the fault can be the processor which must be confirmed with a data check or oscillations of the crystal.

My radio does not turn on

Check the battery or the power supply to the circuit, If there is not voltage to the main board this can be failure of the regulator. If not it can be fault in the control circuit.
Check the output of the battery eliminator.

_ma laptop just went dead it charger blinks bt no power s getin to the laptop.

Hi c_odipo,
The problem isn't your laptop because the fault is coming from your charger. Blinking of led light in your charger indicated that it goes in out-of-regulation. To confirmed the fault you need to use another charger with the same output voltage and current ratings. Once confirmed that the laptop will power on with other charger, you need to replaced your own. There some shop that repair this faulty charger, you must find one and ask for estimate how much will be charged to get fix to have an idea whether to buy a new one.
Hope I help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

hi, i have had the privilege of work on these particular series of HP Laptops. This may sound daft, but have you tried the brightness keys? If so you have a fault with the backlight which is caused by 1) a fault on the Mainboard 2) the inverter has blown (a small circuit board the regulates the voltage from main board to the lcd screen) 3) The backlight on the lcd screen has blown. You will need to determine where the fault lies before paying out large sums. You may want to get a diagnostic done by a Local laptop company. Hope this helps.

DMR-55E dvd recorder timer fault

Hi there,

This is a common problem with this particular model. I can tell you what the fault is but unless you feel confident in using a soldering iron, the repair is best left to someone who is.

Ok...the fault you describe is caused by failure of IC001. This is a voltage regulator on the power board. You can identify the regulator as it is fixed to along thin metal strip near the middle of the board. It gets very hot during normal operation and will fail after a couple of years. The metal strip offers very little heat dissipation so the regulator operate in excess of its limits and therefore fails.

You need to take the lid off, remove the board which is mounted on the right hand side of the unit and replace the faulty regulator.

To remove the board, remove the fixing screw above the power connector on the back of the recorder, then the 4 fixing screws that secure the board. Next carefully remove the multi-connector that connects the board to other circuitry and lift the board clear.

A new regulator type STRG 6353 and can be obtained from several online suppliers. The old regulator can be removed by unscrewing the fixing screw, cuttiing the 5 pins with wire cutters. Then using a soldering iron, carefully removing the residual pins from the printed board making sure the print is not damaged.

Use some heatsink compound on the back of the new component, this will help it to dissipate heat more easily, use an additional heatsink if you can, which will help to prolong the life of the new regulator, then tightly secure it in position before carefully soldering the 5 pins.

Check that you have soldered it correctly without any shorted pins or tracks and reassemble the unit. I have repaired dozens of these successfully with exactly this fault.

Mains voltages can be lethal so always remove the power plug before doing any work like this and be sure of your own ability. If you're not confident in tackiling this, get someone to do it. Whatever you do, don't ditch the unit for such an easy to fix fault!

From your user name, I guess you're a radio amateur, so you should be on home territory.........
