Capacitor for the Sylvania 6842-PEM 42

Jerry,

Would a 0.047µF 50V Hi-Q Ceramic Disc Capacitor work for fixing the ruptured capacitor?

Thanks,

Alan

    Replaced the capacitor C2250 but it had no effect. Was that the right one?

No, it will not work (I tried it - twice!). Here is a link to the replacement part I used, and this fixed the problem - TV works great now.

If you are certain that the capacitor is OK, there could be a different problem on the main power board or even on the sub-power board. The sub-power board should have output voltages even if the main power board is defective.

Looking for info on Sylvania 6842 PEM


This RadioShack capacitor is no good - too low a voltage rating. Try replacing it with this one, or something with the same values:

You will see the blown capacitor once you open up the back of the unit. It is over to the top left side of the unit.

Here is a link for some basic soldering instructions for circut boards.

Wont turn on


Most common problem is a ruptured capacitor on the main power pcb. It can be seen as ruptured if you know where to look. It has to be replaced with a special type of capacitor or it will quickly fail again. If its less than a year old it is still on parts warranty.

Sylvania 6842-PEM Flickering Problem


Something is breaking down. Possibly a specific ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb that has been troublesome. Usually there is just a loud pop and the screen goes dead. If the set is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty and the technician could just change circuit boards until the problem is gone.

Sylvania 6842PEM


Have fixed a bunch of those as a Sylvania ASC. There is a small ceramic capacitor on the main power PCB that has ruptured. It must be replaced with a different part, a special type of capacitor, or it will just fail again. Sylvania had recommended replacing the main power PCB rather than repair because sometimes there was additional damage on the board, however replacing the capacitor fixed every one that came to us. I preferred that because some electrical voltages have to be adjusted if the circuit board is replaced with a different one.

Both TV'S Blanked out, i've only had them for a year


Most likely a ruptured ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb. The capacitor must be replaced with a different, special, type or it will fail again. We have repaired a lot of them with this problem. If it is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty.
