'TH' is a common abbreviation for 'thermistor' and they are used to dampen surge current into a supply when first turned on.

Because their purpose in life is to be variable, you will have to get information from the manufacturer if nothing is visible any more on the part.

Typical values if it is used in this manner are ~20 ohms cold and a few ohms or less once hot.

Size determines the peak power rating and they can be very small (2-3 mm) for some applications, and up to ~ 25 mm for others.

The type used in this manner is termed 'negative temperature coefficient' as its value decreases with heat.
There is, of course, also the type that increases with heat, then a 'positive temp-co.'

Depending on the state of destruction of it, you can often get a rough estimate of its range by measuring a fragment with an ohmmeter; this will tell you only if the part is a lower or higher resistance type as they are made in the kilo-ohm range too for other uses.

If I had to guess; I would use a larger one (~20-25 mm) and a cold resistance of ~ 25 ohms at 23 degrees C and a cold resistance (this is less critical) of 2 ohms or less.

Keep in mind - this part may be a victim! While they do fail alone on occasion, you may have a shorted component that forced that part to act like a fuse.

Samsung tv(powerboard BN44-00264A)wont turn on nothing not even standby what could it be theirs no burn spots

Then its working primary good, the fuses but secundary can be bulged capacitors convextopped or leaking ones on the print ? a mos-n-fet can be damaged also there are fuse-resistors inside little circuits to protect to tuner and other places but also, the green colored versions of korean 3w resistors could have bad end wirecaps on it it could be the case but capacitors of Samsung are allways bad in-between 4 a 5 years of the most models tv, s look for replace with 10 volt higher caps and 120 degrees typos . solder pads of heat-carrying active components and loose components by bad solderings cold solder bath on the factory on some places.
first measure for junction of the diodes secundair if there is one shorted it will also stand in protect-mode , if you not find the problem , you can take a variac in order to circumvent the short-circuit protection hihihii then its burning out a few components where it became wrong so ill do that in the early times of the first CRT with sda scl and memory codes and protection in the digital era in tv from analog CRT tv i know that it was very different to repare a 30 years ago TV with variac but if you slowly higher the power on you can in serial place a lamp of 200W between the AC to the power supply to see with a temperature measurement witch active component could be bad.

How to Calculate SMD Resistor Code

SMD resistor codes isdifferent from the normal resistor color code (color bands) you had seen in theelectronic circuit boards. Surface mount resistors is very much smaller in than the normal carbon film resistor and because of this the numbers andletters were stamped upon or printed on the top side of the component. Thosenumbers and letters have a meaning and you could use that as information tofind out or calculate the desire resistance values. Sometimes the resistors aredesigned in a very small until we have difficulty to read the code. Byusing a magnifier glass we could easily read the resistor codes. clip_image002.jpg clip_image003.jpgThere are two types ofsurface mount resistors used in an electronic circuit board-the 3-digit and4-digit code SMD. The first two digits represent the two digits in the answer.The third digit represents the number of zero's you must place after the twodigits. Theanswer will be in Ohms. For example: 104 which mean 10 0000 (4 zero's)and the final answer is 100k. Let's calculate the 4 digit SMD, 1182 which mean118 00 (2 zero's) and the final answer is 11.8k.

How to test an LCD TV or monitor PSU and inverter


Before proceeding I assume you have technical training along with the multimeter. A full testing must be done with power on, and for safety reason must not be done by an untrained user.

The tip contains only general indications. The reader is supposed to have the training to apply in practice the testing method below.

If there is no power at all, then the responsible is almost always the PSU.

When there is no power, test AC in to PSU. If there is no AC in (read volts, or read ohms on power cable), that means that the power cord must be replaced.

If there is AC in, then test the PSU section near to AC input. You always find a resistor or a fuse in there . Check if it has blown.
After that you test the rest of PSU component. If there is no power at all , and problem is not power cord, it is often possible to spot at a glance a leaky or bulged capacitor.

If there is power, but the monitor stays in standby, then te PSU is forced to low voltage only by controller board. This happens when a fault had been detected.

In this case testing the PSU becomes more complicate. The technician must locate the control lines from controller board. This control lines operate at lower PSU voltage (often +5V), and turn on higher voltages on PSU board.

The inverter may use for example a +20V line from PSU. The +20V line is turned on by the controller board, closing a +5V control line to PSU. When PSU is in standby mode, the technician testing the PSU must bridge the +5V line with the PSU low +5V circuit, and test if the +20V line to the inverter gets turned on.

As explained this kind of test must not be done by the unexperienced user, as the chance to waste the unit beyond repair is high, and there are also many safety concerns.

After testing the PSU, next part to test will be the inverter board.

The inverter is tested reading DC voltage in from controller board, and AC out to back light system.
The inverter is an high voltage board, remember, safety first when testing AC circuit.

If the inverter has no DC from controller, then test PSU, if PSU is OK, and inverter has still no DC in when PSU line to inverter is on, then replace controller board.
If the inverter has DC in, and no AC out, then replace the inverter.
If the inverter has DC in and AC out when higher DC voltage to inverter is turned on, then test at component level the main controller board, and if present test LCD controller.

Should i change a burned resistor for a better one?

It sounds like you have other problems that're causing that resistor to get too hot, Angie. Carefully check for any other components that are also getting hot when that resistor gets hot.

Hi, have a philips 42pf7321d/37 tv that won't turn on, I replaced 2 capacitors that were bad but when I tried to turn it on again two leds on the power supply turn on making a clicking noise they stay on...


The clicking noise and the leds on mean that there is an incorrect voltage value detected from the main controller board. When this happen we say that the main controller is forcing the PSU to standby, sending the set in protect mode.In protect mode only

The PSU can be tested bridging the low voltage control lines that are turning the higher DC volts from PSU on.

The procedure to test the PSU is illustrated in the following article. I wrote the article for LCD, but the procedure is more or less the same on your plasma. Simply disregard the part on inverter (plasma work in a different way and have no inverter or backlight system) How to test an LCD TV or monitor PSU

Bridging the voltage lines is a repair suitable for an experienced technician. If you are a DIYer, better testing the resistors and components near to the faulty capacitors by reading Ohms to check if they have continuity. This operation is done with power not connected.

If you need to replace the whole board, here the part number: POWER SUPPLY UNIT LJ44-BLAH101C PHILIPS. The part is temporarily out of stock, and may be available ordering from Philips.

Here the service manual:

Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on. Error code 14

I have the model Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on and MOST articles on the Internet say it's the Capacitors capictors capictors..I checked all of them. My tv just blinked red lights, had the clicking sound at first power on, but then goes black. No sound. No picture. Nothing. Just blinking red lights. MINE WAS RESISTOR no. 3318 , a 100 OHM RESISTOR ON POWER SUPPLY BOARD. I BOUGHT REPLACEMENT FOR .99 CENTS SOLDER IT, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!! THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK. JUST A SUGGESTION.. 1. CHECK FOR BULGING CAPACITORS (90 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM) 2. THEN CHECK FOR RESISTORS WITH MULTIMETER ( FALLS INTO THE OTHER 10 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM.) TELL ME IF THAT

No picture on N3250W viewsonic

I just had a viewsonic supply all apart with a blown capacitor, I believe c36. q7 a surface mount npn transistor on the solder side of board was shorted. Replaced cap and transistor, set works fine. Also, check all your electrolytics on this board as they sometimes swell and go bad.

Technika TV LCD26-207 died in service

I know the cause of the fault is R983 - it appears to be a pullup resistor that kickstars the PSU. If you look you will find its slightly burnt. I dont know the value of this resistor. But if you connect a 60w mains lamp in place of the resistor the standby light will light then can start the set by pressing one of the buttons on the side of the set. If anybody knows the value please let us know. The part will only be pennies. Keith
