An old LED TV set was brought to my shop for repair by my ex football coach. The customer said the TV went dead right after a power failure in the house. It has no stand by light no any indication of any life left in this device.

Getting to the main power supply was very easy.




I did not have to take the whole frame off to get inside, just few screws off in the center of the frame and I could see the metal frame.

Beneath this metal frame sits the power supply and that was my repair target.

I checked the fuse and it was intact which means it was getting power but for some reason, it was not coming one. I looked for bad plugged capacitors and I found none. When I looked to the back of the board, I found a lot of cold soldering joints and right away, with my soldering iron, started to re solder every single joint on that board including the SMD parts.

Sad to say, after all this work, started getting power up to the secondary side of the power supply. I guess it was a progress but not enough to bring the TV back to life.




I this time, I was suspecting a lot of bad capacitors on that board. The method that I used was heat and freeze. I heated the capacitors in certain areas and try the TV if it comes on or not.  Finally after a while, I came to a certain spot that when heated with a hair dryer, the TV came on.

When the TV came on and a nice display on the screen, I used a cold spray on the same capacitors I froze these parts just to make sure the capacitors are the bad parts and not the other components around it. Sure enough, the moment they got cold, the TV would not start at all. Right away, I replaced all the four ones in that location.

450uf/10 x2

Right I after I replaced these four capacitors the TV was a live again.

It took me a while to re solder all these cold soldering joints and the replacement of these capacitors but it was worth it. The TV is back to life and the customer was happy. Mission Accomplished.

    Good Job. Applying heat with a hair dryer and cooling down certain areas is a well known procedure. Nice to know that it also is a smart method to easily detect bad e-caps. It helped me in the past to find a bad contact in a PAL Delay Line module of a Commodore Amiga color Monitor. (By-the-way: The delay line in CTV and Monitors is necessary because the bandwith of the chrominance is much smaller than the Luminance signal bandwidth and both need to address the same pixel spot on the screen. So the Luminance signal is slowed down to the match the speed of the chroma signal.)

    Good job Waleed. I didn't think freezing would work on an e-cap. Glad to see it worked.

    Nice work starting in the logical place. A lot of work to resolder the cold solder joints but worth the effort while you are in there. Good use of cold and hot I would not have expected the heat would have brought the electrolytic back to life during testing. Reading these article is one way I sharpen my skills. Thank you for sharing your work.
    Best Regards,
    Mason

    Would a hot air gun not have made the job quicker.
    Evenif it meant mounting the board on a bench and heating from underneath to prevent components falling off?
