led light repair

My wife gave me some non-working LED rice light which are used occasionally on some festivals. it was lying since long time & it handed over to me with final ultimatum either get it repair or scrap it.

How can I scrap 100 LEDs ? I took them on my work bench for testing & Connected on my series bulb Board, there is no sign of Light.

So first of all I inspected the wires & Leds for discoloration or broken, everything seems Ok. Next, opened plastic box to see inside.

Found inside Circuit traces burnt, I did not work on this type of unit so far so don’t know what components are used.

So I opened another unit of rice light. On another circuit I found only one component.

    The wife is a chief commander and inspiration for technicians like us and any chance to appease her should not be wasted! (LOL) Well done, dear!

    You took the best smart choice by not testing each and every single led but dived straight into the power source and found the culprit! Good job!

    I wonder why these LED's are called Rice LED's? any way I am glad you listened to the wife other widr we would have problems...LOL. I am glad it worked out because If I get these in the shop I would throw them away and never bother with it but if my wife tells me to get them fixed, I get them fixed. LOL. have a blessed day

    I guess your third hand device is diy,I have being trying to make one, but I never did, maybe it's time to make one seing yours. My daughter will just drop any faulty home appliance on my working table without information, assuming when daddy sees it he knows what it means, while my wife will always call my attention to the damage appliance.Will daughter is still on training ground I guess.Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.
