Question about Sylvania 6842PE 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Blown Capacitor I had a capacitor on the back go out and I am not sure what its rating is. Unfortunately I don't have a wiring diagram for it. It is a small capacitor. I found one at radioshack that looks similiar to it but not sure. Any ideas as to how I might get a hold of a wiring diagram or someone that might be able to tell me what capacitor I need?

There should be a circuit designation for this part marked on the PC board, for example C631. Start by posting that designation. Having that will allow anyone with access to the service information to post the value of the part.

There is electric to the panel, b80ut the buttons don't light up on 580-75123700


if you got power to the panel but the button aren't responding you have a blown out circuit board or a busted capacitor.

Wiring- Connecting wiring on replaced fan motor


Your new fan motor should have a diagram with it or at least printed on the side of the motor, that will help a lot from your end. As for me, I don't know what unit you have, so I will try to help you with just the basics.

Your old motor probably had 3 wires. One went to the contactor, that is the "Line Voltage", one went to the Common terminal on the old capacitor (COM), that's the other "Line Voltage" wire, and the last one went to the "FAN" terminal on the old capacitor. The reason the old capacitor looks different is because it works for both the compressor and the fan motor (split capacitor). You still need this hooked up for the compressor to work.

The new fan motor.
These vary in brands and wiring so I can not tell you the colors without knowing exactly which motor you have. On the new motor wiring diagram, you should see the "Line Voltage" as described above that 2 of the wires are ran to each other (just on the diagram, not wired together on the unit). This is your power wire that goes to the contactor on the unit, usually black, and your Common wire that runs to the capacitor. You can still run this wire (COM) to the common terminal on the old capacitor since you still have to use the old capacitor for the compressor and the common terminal should still be jumper-ed from the contactor to the (COM) terminal. Then you will probably have 2 wires for the new capacitor, usually Brown and Brown/White. These wires run to each side of the new capacitor and doesn't matter which terminal. Then you will take a new jumper wire from the (COM) terminal on the old capacitor to the terminal on the new capacitor that has your Brown/White lead. Make sure you secure the capacitors inside the unit so not to touch anything surrounding them. Your new motor might also be a "Reversible" motor that has reversing wires also. Again, your new motor diagram can tell you how to hook these up. You have to have it spinning the right way, most of the time it is CCW (counter-clockwise).

I'm sorry I can't be any clearer on this, but without knowing the brands, models, etc, I'm in the dark. If you need any additional help, I would be glad to help! Good luck and hope you get to cooler days!

How do you hookup a universal hvac condeser motor the old one had a black wire,red and a brown wire plus the green&yellow ground the new one has a black wire a yellow then it has back connetor thats...


WHAT??? Did the new motor come with a wiring diagram? Typically you will either be using a "3 wire" connection or a "4 wire" connection. 3 wire is for using the existing capacitor (provided it's the right size), 4 wire is for using a separate capacitor. You should have 5 total wires on new motor HIGH/LOW/COMMON/CAP & CAP. Then possibly some separate wires for ground and rotation. The ground goes right where you mount the motor, rotation...make sure its blown up and out of the machine. 3 wires would be...1 SPEED 1 COMMON 1 CAP. 4 wire would be 1 SPEED 1 COMMON 2 CAPACITOR WIRES. Good Luck!!

I installed a new fan motor condenser in my air unit outside and I bought a new capacitor but it looks different than my old one in that my old one has three points of connection and the new one just two....


Look at the microfarad rating on the old capacitor and the new capacitor. Many are dual capacitors in one housing. The lower rating on your old capacitor is for the outdoor fan motor and the higher is for your compressor. It sounds to me like you have been sold a single capacitor when your unit had a dual capacitor originally.

I have a 42" LG LCD with a blown capacitor 16v 2200uf. Can I buy just the capacitor and is it difficult to install? Thank you, Don


just try to replace the capacitor. use a soldering iron and desoldering pump in removing it. make sure to replace it with the same value, and observe proper polarity.

Ceiling fan capacitor hook up problem. I have a 3 speed fan. 4 switch. A 3 wire capacitor - CBB61. Kids lost wiring diagram. Any which way I try to wire it up only one of the speeds works. Any wiring...


The reverse switch on my Hampton Bay ceiling fan didn't work. I cut the 6 wires; 1 white, 1 gray, 2 pink, 2 yellow. Here's what I did. Removed reverse switch. Had 6 wires white, gray, 2 yellow, 2 pink. Connected gray to yellow, connected white to pink and fan runs fine. Is this OK? I do not need to reverse fan. It's been running for 1 hour now with no problems. Don S.

How do i reconnect capacitor cbb65a-1 from my haier esa3125 12,00


The wires usually just have connectors that push on/pull off. Some capacitors run the fan and the compressor and have 3 different terminals. It is very important to make sure the wires get put back on the right terminals on this type. You can find a capacitor at a local heating and air store.

Are the wires going to capacitor correct. You have two sides to the capacitor one side is compressor or herm as stated on top the fan. should have one wire only on fan side then two wires to the common side and one wire to herm side. trace out the wires I'm sure it's electrical and make sure you can see that it does in fact have a dual capacitor. Turn off all electrical supply before even touching this as you are around some big voltage. I do this everyday and I won't even get close unless I pull the safety disconnect on the side of the house. Get back to me and can help further. Ken

I have an outside unit mfr Goodman, model # CKL-49-1. The blower motor isn't working. I'm able to hear it attempting to start. How do I check this motor to see if it's bad? Thanks


You have bad capacitor on your unit it may not look bad but chances are it is just get the microfarad rateing of the side of the cap. should be like 55.5 55 7.5 something like that. Also check your fan motor. last. I have changed hundreds of caps this year. Russ

There will be one wire that will go to two and only two points: From the high voltage tap on the high voltage transformer to one terminal of the capacitor. There will be nothing else connected at either point of that wire.

The other terminal of the capacitor will have two or three wires connected to it. It will go to the FA terminal of the magnetron and to the non-ground side of the high voltage rectifier diode.
