LD7575PS Power IC Shorted
A police woman brought this to my shop for repair. It was a dead LCD computer monitor and it was kept in the storage room for a very long time. This LCD computer monitor was used as a monitor for security cameras. Today this woman decided to get it fixed in order to use it in her own home.
These kinds of LCD models are very easy and cheap to fix.
That is why the moment I opened the back cover, I saw this and I smiled because I thought it was any easy fix. To my surprise, well, take a look.
A bulged capacitor usually is the cause for a dead LCD monitors but I got really shocked to see the rest of the damage.
The main capacitor was also bulged and damaged but still, there was more.
The fuse was blown as well which means either the bridge rectifier is shorted or the Mosfet but in my case, both were shorted. The fuse resister was also damaged as you can see in the photo.
With all the damage, I had to call the customer and tell her the situation. There is always a chance that even with the replacement of all these damaged part, the screen will not work. As a technician I think like that; what if? The customer gave me the green light to get started. I replaced all the damaged part and guess what? It did not work.
I replaced the fuse as well but it is not in the photos. I was right about this screen not working even when all the damaged parts replaced. I did not give up and kept going. Sometimes we get frustrated with this kind of repair because in our mind, all these damaged replaced, took me time and money and yet, nothing works.
The part number of the Mosfet is P9NK70FP which is 700 volts, 1.2 ohm, 7.2 amp and 35 watts. The bridged rectifier number is KBP206G. The rest of the parts are very clear in the photo.
At this time, the short was gone and I could power it on and start to check the voltages there. The power was reaching the main capacitor and it was steady but that all it was. I unplugged the LCD screen from the main power and started to check for bad components.
There was a capacitor nearby this IC location and it was reading short on it. I traced back the line to this IC. The part number is LD7575PS. I added flux on it and with a re work station I de-soldered it off board.
The moment, the IC was off, the short on that capacitor was gone. The only way to find such replacement was to take it off another power board from another LCD monitor. I was lucky to find one on a Proview 900W model. Ones I replaced it, I got this.
The standby came on and then I saw this on the screen.
