Where there is smoke, pops something went---find another shop that knows what they are doing---never plug in a set that smoked!

MY 1993 CLUB CAR GOLF CART WILL NOT MOVE, I HEARD A LOUD POP WHEN I WENT FROM FORWARD TO REVERSE/ANY SUGGESTIONS?


check to see if there is a circuit breaker on the wire path from your batteries. Could have blown the motor but You would see some smoke more than likely, and smell it burning. What you described with the popping sounds like an electrical short where the wires just burned up but again you'd smell it and maybe see smoke. The switch may be bad also check it with a meter to see it its making contact and see if voltage is coming up to and exiting the switch.

Heard a pop and then red light flashed 6 times then repeats. Installed new light bulb, already replaced housing door from previous problem. When starting back up, lamp indicator flashes.


Okay sounds like a power supply problem. The "Pop" was probably a Blown Capacitor. Did you smell smoke or see smoke? I would check the power supply. If your not familiar with changing Capacitors. leave it to a pro. If you decide to tinker with it . Make sure its unpluged and Electrolitic Capacitors. are drained. Look at the Capacitors they will look like tiny soda pop cans. The good caps will have a flat top the bad caps will have a protruding bulge on the top. and probably have a yellow leakage on top. Don't mistake factory glue for cap ooze. factory uses glue to hold components so to solder them.
Hope this helps.
Be careful . I can't stress this enough. Unplug the thing first,.
Normally you would unsolder the cap and test it. Caps can blow out with no sign of bulge on top.

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

Yes, I do in home warranty work on vizeo, it sounds like you need a power board and perhaps a main board. The power board is what pooped.

AudioBahn A2300HCT no sound


Generally, if the amplifier smokes, the power supply FETs have failed.

Many times, the output transistors fail and that causes the power supply FETs to fail.

Audiobahn won't release schematics. The amplifiers are relatively simple and a schematic isn't generally required.

If you know how to check the transistors, check them to determine the severity of the damage. If you don't know how to check them, read through the following page following all links provided.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
