Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Same as others. Bad capacitors.(2) Having trouble locating replacement parts. Have been describing the bad parts as follows. On the label it says... Elna CE105(small 0)C, below that 0322, below that a "P" in a circle. My brother, who is an electrical engineer says it's 10V, 680 MC, He also wrote "C1260" and "C1261"Is that correct ? Have contacted referred parts supply company (Talonix) and am awaiting reply. Any suggestions appreciated ! Thanks, matthu_90403@yahoo.com

The electrolytic capacitors you describe are standard Elna 150 degree celcius types and their value is typically 680uF 10V. If the circuit reference on the board suggests C1260 and C1261 and they are both the same capacitance and voltage value, they should be easy to obtain and replace. Uprate their capacitance value from 680uF to 1000uF and if the originals were 10V, upgrade the working voltage of both to 25 - 50V - they should still fit the board.

These types of caps are available from most electronics stores including Radio Shack, and are inexpensive. I recommend that you replace ALL the electrolytics in the power supply of this unit to prevent the likelihood of further failure. Because they are inexpensive, replacing ALL of them at once in a circuit is easier than just changing 1 or 2 caps. Talk to your brother again - and I bet he will agree that all the caps should be replaced, even if some still look OK.

Olevia 242 S11, began having sound issues; first turned on pic with no sound. Cycle 2-3 times sound would return. Now it would not turn on. Would have to unplug power for 5 min. HELP


That sounds very much like a failed electrolytic capacitor in the power supply board. It's easy to spot; the top of the capacitor is bulged up and may be leaking material. Usually, there is more than one bad capacitor. See the attached photo - two of the three capacitors shown are bad.
https://s17-us2.ixquick.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?

To get replacements, you need the following information: Capacitance, printed on the capacitor label (e. g., 2200 uF where the u is actually the Greek letter mu and stands for micro-; this would mean 2200 microFarads),
Maximum Voltage, printed on the capacitor. The replacement may have a higher voltage rating, but not lower.
Maximum temperature, printed on the capacitor. The replacement may have a higher temperature rating, but not lower.
Diameter of the capacitor in millimeters. The replacement may have a smaller diameter, but smaller diameter capacitors may not meet ripple current or endurance specs (described later). There may not be enough space on the board at that location for larger diameters.
Length of capacitor in millimeters. If it is too long, you won't be able to fit the cover back on without damaging something.
Endurance: at least 6000 hours at maximum temperature. For 10 mm diameter capacitors or larger, you should be able to find 10,000 hour parts.
Ripple current: You want the maximum ripple current rating available consistent with the other specs, otherwise the new capacitor may burn out prematurely. Higher voltage capacitors often have a greater ripple current rating, and physically larger capacitors likewise.

I have had excellent result with Panasonic FR series capacitors. They are much better than the Chinese off-brands usually installed in LCD TVs. When you install the replacement capacitor, make sure the polarity band goes in the same way as the original (the board is probably marked to show which way), and use lead-free electronic solder with an iron that gets hot enough for it. There are static-sensitive parts on the power supply board. Do not touch the circuit conductors with your fingers; handle the board by the edges only. Do not place the board with the wiring side down on any surface except an antistatic mat.

TOSHIBA 40BV700B stuck in standby mode


Sounds like fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Describe your LN-T4671F 46 in. LCD Television Problem When I turn the power on, the TV clicks on and off several times before it finally powers up and the screen comes on. Is this a common problem, and if...


Good day!! That problem is usually cause of bad/faulty capacitors on the power supply board..So you have a better chances and easily locating the faulty capacitors if it is look like leak/bulged on the top.. So please try to follow this instruction on how to do that.. 1. Open the back cover of your TV. 2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord.. 3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors.. 4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value.. 5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter.. Hope it helps you..

I have a Daenyx 40"


Not familiar with the

Daenyx

brand, but the symptom you describe sound like a faulty capacitor in the power supply. Capacitors act like batteries. They store power and give a good solid source of power. When they go bad they will short out to ground. Unplugging the set will temporarily refresh a bad cap a couple times. Normally if you look at the round can looking parts on the power supply the bad one or ones will be bulged on the tops and or leaky. Hope this helps. :)

The standby light is on and flashing, drawyer will not open, changed batteries in remote, no response. Remote shows no light, could it be worn out?


Its a capacitor problem that is easily solved by a do-it-yourselfer. Google dvp642 and c316 (location of the cap on the board). A simple inspection will tell you if its bad and you can replace the cap out of Radio Shack for a couple bucks. Im doing it to a player right now...I have the bad capacitor out and just need the replacement. The bad cap will be bulged up on the top. It looks like a black barrel w/ an aluminum top. Its located on the main board that the power cable is attached to. You will find forums which describe the repair and replacement part in detail. Good luck!
Comments: Apr 17, 2010 - As a follow up to my original solution...my repair works fine. I did however have to tear a couple of old computer power supplies apart to get the right capacitor...again do a search for dvp642 and c316 and you'll find precise directions on how to make this EASY repair...I loved salvaging this nice player!
Good luck everyone and go for it! Long live DIYers!

I go to turn it on and the vizio label turns white then clicks off


The Vizio VP322 is notorious for having bad capacitors on the power supply circuit board. They will probably be bulging and may have electrolyte leaking. I replaced four bad capacitors (with a different brand just in case) and fixed it. Total cost under $10. A lot cheaper and better than replacing the whole circuit board which may contain the same "faulty" capacitors from the factory.

Where is the la78 located on the tv and where is vertical output ic


bad Vertical Output IC (usually mounted on an aluminum heat sink with the part on it labeled LA78?? or AN?? ) and 1 or 2 bad capacitors. To find the IC follow the 4 wires that come from the Yoke (which is a contained coil of wires slipped over the neck of the picture tube(s)) back to the board. 2 of the wires go to the horizontal o/p and 2 to the Vertical o/p circuit area. the thinner gauge wires are for the vertical.

Insignia ns-lcd42hd screen flutters


This television is having trouble with sync circuits. It probably has some component adding erratic noise voltage to the circuit causing the instability in the sync lock circuits. The solution is to locate the bad component with an oscilloscope by following the signal path with oscilloscope probe until you find the irregular signal and then replace the part. This part could be either capacitors or ringing resistors.It may also be a component in you solid state signal processor. You should have it tested in a service center and see if they can locate the bad components. Then see if it worth replacing with the cost of parts and labor. Hope this helps you with your problem.

200 Chevy Suburban -- trouble starting


Bad fuel pressure regulator. Located on drivers side of engine on fuel rail. Cost of part is around $70. Easy to replace. Buy the part, look at it, find the old one on the engine in the area described above. Pull the vacuum line off of it, if you see any fuel in the vacuum line it's bad. The vacuum line sucks up the fuel flooding the engine. Classic symptoms. Make sure to relieve the fuel pressure prior to removing or let it sit for a couple of hours, or over night. The leak will relieve the pressure over time. Simple clip holds it on, easy to get at. Make sure to remove both "O" rings prior to putting new unit on. Should solve the problem.
