Bad SMD Capacitor Caused No Display In HAIER LED TV MODEL LE32B9000

smd capacitor shorted

This TV was brought by a carpenter who had come home to do some work and happened to see me involved in Electronic service work. In fact, there are quite a few customers who are like him. This is in fact an added advantage whenever we engage someone for work in the house. The complaint was that picture went off suddenly when watching and sound was only heard. My immediate doubt was about backlight, which is quite common.

Anyhow, after opening and cleaning the inside thoroughly, I checked the LED strip using my LED Tester and found it to be working well. The output voltage from the driver of the board was also ok. So, next I probed the voltages on the scaler board and found these missing. In such circumstances, I followed the advice given by my techie friends, by doing a cold test of all the capacitors on the scaler board. By the way, recently I acquired one Microscope and bought an adjustable stand (in fact it was a Mike stand bought from Amazon) as guided by my techie friends.

This came very handy in viewing the boards, which housed very tiny components, which are very difficult for the naked eye. Using a lens occupies one hand and we won’t be free. Even the table top lens with light does not serve the purpose fully.

shorted smd capacitor in tv

As it was dead short, there was no way of knowing its correct value. So, as advised by my techie friends, I looked for a similar capacitor from an old scaler board (which was sent by a second hand dealer) and found it to be reading as 22uF.

Since the defective capacitor was in the DC supply for the level shifter IC, it is very important for replacing it. Then replaced the defective capacitor and powered the TV to see the display back.

Mission accomplished very satisfactorily, though devoid of any exciting challenges, and got added to its bag!

      I bought the camera from Ozone Electronics,Kanjangad, a technician member of our whatsup group. Mike stand was bought from Amazon. You yourself can search for it very easily. Many thanks for your comments!

    Using such a mike stand on these microscopes is quite a handy feature. But I just use the stand that came with the microscope I bought on Aliexpress. But I experienced a lot of failures with the firmware in my scope when using it to make snapshots from components. It keeps freezing when it should take snapshots or at other moments when it isn't to suppose to quit. The reset button inside needs to be pressed quite often to de-block the bad functioning microscope. My badly firmware made scope needs much better firmware but sadly there isn't any better version update and the seller only sells these with very poor bugged firmware made scopes!

    Microscopes are very important in our field of work. I bought mine from Amscope about four years ago and recently I ordered a HDMI camera that sits on top of the lens that can be connected to a big screen. that way I do not have to strain my eyes all the time. it is worth it although very expensive but helped me in many ways especially I deal with iphone board repair and it comes very handy. good job in the repair and thanks for sharing. have a blessed day

    Concerning microscopes for electronics work, would a stereoscopic one be best?

    Albert, I was having similar problems using my Supereyes microscope until I switched it from a USB 3.0 port to a USB 2.0 port
