Burst Fixed Capacitor Found In Primary Of Small Size Computer SMPS
This small SMPS was serviced by me once in October, 2019. Kindly see the article here: Servicing Small Size Power Supply- Model LC-8180FSX | Electronics Repair And Technology News (jestineyong.com)
It was brought to me in dead condition. When I opened and checked up, I saw the 105/250V Fixed Capacitor burst in the primary section. It was found short too! So, replaced it with a 105/450V Cap.
Then checked for any more damages and did not find any. Applied power, found FAN working well and checked the voltages, which were found to be normal.
Closed the case with satisfaction getting added to its bag!
Note: I am giving only snaps of two voltages just for reference. All other voltages such as 3.3 and -12 were also found to be ok. As I had already covered the full pictures of the internal in my previous article, I am skipping these too here!
