No Power In Telesonic DVD Player Solved
Customer sent to me this Telesonic DVD player with the complaint of no power symptom. As usual I had to test it first by connecting the AC plug and it was indeed no power.
Once the cover was removed I could see the main filter capacitor bulged and when I looked at the side view of the circuit board, I saw the main filter capacitor sleeve melted and the resistor located in front of the capacitor, the leg was rusted-see the photos below:
Both of the components were removed and after that I checked on the main fuse. In fact you can check on the main fuse first if you wish to. I found that the main fuse was also bad (open circuit).
Next, I checked on the power IC pins and found that it was shorted. I proceeded to check all the components in the primary and secondary side and found there were five bad components-see the photo below:
After the replacement with good component, I used the series light bulb test to really make sure there was no longer short circuit. Otherwise if there is a short circuit, the components that I had just replaced would blow again.
The bulb lighted up for a while and went dim which indicated a good sign that I can turn on the DVD player. I put in the new fuse and powered On and the DVD player came back to life again-see the two photos below:
