My power supply started smoking and appears to have spit out some dark liquid

I am wondering if there is a comman capicitor or something that goes wrong with the power supply on an Astar LTV-3001. The fuse on the power supply is fine, but there was some dark liquid that was obviously ejected from something on the power supply board and started to smoke. Can I just fine a new power supply module for it? Thank you very much.

    This is the second time my Astar unit has done this. I think its a lil over 3 years old. I was'nt home the first time and my daughter freaked and turned it off. It has worked fine the last 4-5 months since that incident. then tonight I turned it on to put a movie on for my youngest. Suddenly the screen froze up and smoke started coming from the top of the unit. Smelled of burned plastic. :( I havent tested i agaion yet. Letting it cool down and see what happens in a little bit.

SOURCE: I need a replacement circuit board for my Astar

The failures on these LCD's are due to defective capacitors in the power supply. There are about 23 capacitors that will need to be replaced to restore the LCD power supply functionality. Check the picture to see where the capacitors are located, the power supply on your LCD is not the same but similar to the one on the picture just the capacitors are place in a different order.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

Sony Kdl 70r520a is stuck in loop on start up. Sony logo appears then the screen goes dark, then repeats this cycle.

Go to because a bad capacitor on the powder supply board will cause this. There can be other reasons, but all involve taking that Sony apart.

White smoke belching out but will not start

white smoke is usually water, grey=oil dark grey=other fluids. with the belching and other symptoms i would be inclined to believe you have a blown head gasket.

It fire's up run's for 30 second's act's like it will die spit's out bunch of smoke start's it all over again!

You have an air conditioner that is spitting smoke?-- That sounds pretty dangerous!-- and likely FINAL!

I wonder if you are talking about something other than an Air Conditioner?

Your Problem is listed under Air Conditioners--

Maybe you can give us more clues, and more exactly what make and model we are talking about-- Maybe we can be more helpful then?

DELL 2208WFP LCD-Comes on normally, but almost immediately goes dark You can see something on the screen if you look closely. Turn it off and back on you see it then dark. any help?


I believe the power led button is still on while the screen goes dark, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is bad that is why it appears for a second and goes dark after that

Since the power led button is on, It means the picture board on your monitor is faulty that is why it appears for a second and goes dark.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself in other to complicate issues.

Take care.

Ford C4 Auto gearbox spits oil

It sounds like it could be overfilled, but that will be easy enough to check on the dipstick. Should be checked with the engine idling in neutral. Otherwise, the trans could be overheating, causing the oil to expand to the point that it spits out the breather. Pull the dipstick and check the fluid condition, if it's dark and smells burnt, the trans may be slipping or overheating for some other reason, and it's probably time to get a trans shop involved. You should probably run an auxiliary cooler at the radiator area in the type of application you describe, especially if you're gonna be using the gas pedal fairly heavily! Sounds like a sweet car, lots of fun to be had in something like that.

Won't power up

MY TV died over a year ago and for some strange reason I never got rid of it. I recently (today) replaced two capacitors and it works great again! It wasn't difficult to solder them on- and this was the first time I've touched a soldering iron. Open the back... you will see which capicitors are bad because they will be swollen. I ordered new capicitors online (Radio Shack didn't carry them). Just make sure that you solder them on in the right direction. The first time I tried the capicitor immediatley blew, the TV started smoking, and it left the room smelling of funk for a few hours.
