Sylvania (ProView) CL2072b Circuit board fuse

I have discovered that the fuse on the circuit board as blown. I've jumperd it with a very tiny piece of wire wrap wire to see if the monitor would come back on and it does. I'm a bit uncomfortable with leaving it in this condition, but I have no way of knowing what amp fuse to put in it's place. The fuse is a soldered on surface mount type. Does anyone what amperage fuse should be placed here? The wall wart that powers the monitor is a 12V 5A unit.

The little pieces that connect the upper rotor to the fly bar, are broken. Are those called Buckle Bars? Where can we find some extras?

We've had this problem on one of our three Sharpshooters. I've contacted Air Hogs about the issue and replacements for that piece are NOT available from them. I've had some success using fine wire to resecure the connections by wrapping the end of the little piece that breaks and then wrapping the wire around the little tip on the upper rotor where the piece formerly attached. Good luck!

Are You In Bad Need of a Fuse?

Hello,<br /> <br /> Have you ever taken the back off an electronic piece of equipment only to find that the fuse is blown and you don't have a fuse handy?<br /> <br /> Not to mention that a trip to the Radio Shack is miles away and this is usually the only place to get electronic parts to exact specifications.<br /> <br /> Otherwise, getting an item like a fuse by mail could take up to a week or more and when you do get it you find that it did not make any difference at all with turning the set on.<br /> <br /> To help out in these situations, I use a handy shortcut to the time consuming fuse problem.<br /> <br /> Now this may seem a little unscrupulous to some, but I have tested it time and time again with no further damage to the electronic unit.<br /> <br /> Most people have broken AC corded items around the house that have not been thrown away yet. I have found that these AC cords that were used to plug them up in the wall socket have tiny strands of copper wire in them.<br /> <br /> I have stripped the cover off the AC cord and taken only one strand of the tiny copper wire and tested it to be about 5 to 6 amps which this ampage is usually what most electronic units have as fuses on the AC input.<br /> <br /> I wrap the single strand of copper wire around the blown fuse as a test to see if there is a short in the electronic circuit. If it blows the strand then I know there is a problem, but in a lot of cases if the unit comes on, then I know that I have only a blown fuse.<br /> <br /> I don't leave the strand permanently, but leave it just long enough to find the proper fuse so the connection will hold properly.

What to do fro a blown Fuse or Tripped Breaker.

Well if you have Blown a Fuse/Tripped Circuit Breaker, FIRST, TURN OFF THE MAIN POWER SWITCH. Now, If a Breaker, simply flip the lever, the "Other Way" or, press the button, on the Breaker Body to "Reset" it. If a Fuse, you will have to withdraw the Fuse(s) from the "Holder(s)" until you find the Blown one, look to see if the Fuse Wire is intact, or, not.. a Blown Fuse will have the wire broken/melted. You then, effect repair, by simply using a length of the correctly rated, Fuse Wire. (Replacement Fuse Wire will be of different thicknesses, for different Current Ratings, usually, 5 Amps, 10 Amps, 15 Amps, & 20 Amps). Simply wrap one end of the Fuse Wire, around the contact, at one end, or if screw connection, then under there, & wrap clockwise, then, .make it go through the little hole/slot in middle, and then, wrap it around the screw, or wrap around the other end contact Then replace Fuse, turn the Power back on. Always do all this with nothing plugged into the power socket too. Now if the Fuse.Breaker "Blows" or "Trips" again, with nothing connected, you have a Wiring fault. Also make sure the Unit that caused the problem in the first place is repaired, or it, simply do it all again.

My water pump doesn't work. Our unit is nearly 6yrs old and I have installed a new battery and fully charged it. I have removed the filter on the pump and rotated the impeller. I discovered that the fuse...

There is a wire that runs to the connection of the impeller pump to the unit, my guess is that it is probably touching the side of the copper element and has melted. The other possibilities are that the tiny circuit board behind that connection has come off or the connector at the other end (near the main circuit board) has detached somehow. Hope this helps

Fuel Gauge does not work.....could it be a blown fuse and if so, my fuse box does not have a diagram to look for the proper fuse to check 2000 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4 DR 6 Cyl. Owners Manual does not have...

The fuse usually runs the entire instrument cluster, they would not be guage specific, if your cluster fuse was blown then your hole cluster and other accessories would not be functioning. You can pull the fuses out one by one and inspect them, it should be pretty obvious if one is blown, I do not think this is your problem however.

The problem could also be in the cluster itself, if you pull the cluster out and inspect the circuit board check for burnt wire traces to the fuel guage, if you discover one you can fix this easily by resoldering the trace with a soldering iron and some solder, just be careful not to overheat the board. This condition can happen when an accesory gets shorted out and it burns the circuit trace on the board.

The only other thing that may be wrong is the sending unit for the fuel guage or a broken wire between the sending unit and guage. You can test the guage once you pull the cluster, if you ground out the guage it will show full, this will let you know the guage itself is ok. The sending unit is in the tank, I would check everything else before checking the sending unit as you will have to pull the tank to do that. It is not hard to pull the tank, I believe it is just held on by two straps and then you disconnect the wires and gas fill tube and return lines and the tank is down. Make sure if you drop the tank you get most of the gas out of it because gasolene is really heavy when you are lying on your back wrestling with a tank. Have a small hysdralic jack or floor jack handy and this can assist you in lowering and raising the tank.

The instrument cluster is not hard to take out to inspect, just start looking for screws in the area, you will have to take the trim pieces off and such, but it is not really a hard job and should only take about 45 minutes once you find all the screws. inspection of the circuit board won't take long either.

Power on. Only get white screen

A white screen usually is an indication of a blown SMD fuse on the LCD driver board. This is the board that is actually part of the panel, and you'll need to remove the metal cover on the upper backside of the screen to see it. And by screen, I mean after the monitor has been disassembled and all that's left is the screen.
When this fuse blows, the rest of the monitor still operates fine, like the backlight which is making it white. But the LVDS video signal being sent to the LCD driver board isn't being interpreted and displayed, as it isn't receiving the +5 volts needed to do so.
This really is an easy fix, if you're up to tearing your monitor apart. You'll need a solder gun too. Don't tell anyone I told you this, but you can just place a drop of solder where the tiny fuse is, in order to complete the circuit (if you don't have a replacement for it)

Why does my LG flatron 1953T LCD monitor (19') goes white

Because the fuse on scaler PCB is blown. Open the monitor, open metal cover, disconnect all cables coming between display and boards, take the chassis off the display.
On back side of display you will see metal cover, mounted with tiny screws, take them off. Unscrew the board also and carefully tilt it up. Observe tiny chip fuse (referenced F1 or FU1 or something with "F") somewhere nearby the connector, ring it, replace it with solder drop.
Take everything back together.

VX924 Blown Fuse

What are the symptoms? How do you know the fuse was blown on the monitor you bought? The fuse on vx924 is soldered onto the circuit board. If you have any symptoms that require power its probably not the fuse. The back lighting on this unit has a problem. Three 25v 470uf caps on the circuit board are underrated and have a tendency to go bad. Replace them with 35v 470uf caps.

Power on

I had the same problem, but i fixed it myself. It sounds like the fuse ( F2) is blown on the circuit board. Have you had the ds open at anytime ? if so ,did you put the black sponge/foam back in place between the touch screen and the circuit board? if not , this will blow the fuse. if you look at the circuit board just past midway top right there is two small silver dots. ( F2 ). this should have a very thin piece of fuse wire linking them both, if not then the fuse has blown. Solder a piece of solder and "arch it" and drag from one dot to the other so it forms a link. Try it , it worked a treat on mine . Let me know if it works
