Is the burnt circuit on the motherboard or the power switch circuit board that plugs into the motherboard? Big difference, if the burnt circuit is on the motherboard then yes the motherboard is done and will have to be replaced, but if it's just the power switch circuit bard, then this is replaceable.

Why did my 1984 chevy 305 start blowing white smoke so i checked oil and found water in it. but as i took off valve covers i found metal peices

White smoke, coolant in the oil-you had a cylinder head gasket failure. The valve train pieces indicate more damage-whew! Hard to guess, but if the coolant was in the oil for some time, it may have destroyed the engine. The bottom end bearings could be shot as well. I would be looking for a replacement low mileage engine. Or buy a NEW CAR!

No lights. dead. checked plug

Unplug the brewer. Turn it upside down. You may need to use a small screwdriver to remove small rubber pads that cover screws that hold the bottom cover to the brewer body. Remove those screws. Using a volt-ohm meter, check to see if you have power coming from the power cord to the brewer at the points on the circuit board. IF NOT, REPLACE THE POWER CORD ( cheap fix). If the power cord is working, when you take off the bottom cover and you will find a small circuit board that has very small switches that actuate the brewer. Take that circuit board off, and with a toothbrush and water/soap solution, gently clean the circuit board and then let it dry completely. CHECK the board to see if their are any burnt areas, or any deposits that are corroding connections, and check to see if all connections are unbroken. Fix anything with a small soldering iron that has separated. Let the circuit board dry in the sunlight, and then replace it and the wires connected to it. Try then to plug the cord in and turn the brewer on to see if the lights work then. IF NOT, you will have to replace the circuit board.

I have a cobra CB. I went to hook it up today, and the fuse popped. I went to unhook it and noticed that the radio was smoking. I took the cover off to take a look and see if everything was OK. There is...

Most CB radio have a diode near the B+ leads going in the circuit board, by your description when you hooked it up you probably got the + and - mixed up and put them in reverse by mistake, when this happens it will short out the diode and sometimes destroy the audio output ic and open a trace on the circuit board before it blows the fuse as it smokes. The diode must be replaced and burnt spot repaired on the circuit board, if you are very lucky the audio ic will come out unharmed.

I have a studio was destroyed(burnt) during's not working now.should the entire mother board be changed?or is it just the card?what will be the approximate charge?

The Entire motherboard should be changed. The Ethernet card is directly on the board and if it is burnt, it will affect the motherboard. You may need to change the entire board.

Does it have a fuse we got hit by lighting and now the Pc wont power up

To fix the problem, you need to disassemble the power supply, replace the burnt out fuse, & also check the bridge rectifier section for burnt out rectifying diodes (these usually get burnt out if the high current gets the chance to leak past the fuse, which could sometimes happen). If you find burnt out rectifying diodes, you will need to replace them as well, as they could burn out the fuse again when you try to use the power supply while they are still there.

Burnt out power board


I sympathize with your problem, but I think you are knocking at the wrong door. You should contact your local Packard Bell dealer.

Hope it helps
