Shorted BU3150BF And Open Resistors In Philips DVD Mini Player
The complaint of this Philips DVD mini player was no power.
Back in the April this year I have posted a similar model with the same problem (no power) and it was due to resistor problem. You can read the post in the below link:
As for this case, when the cover was opened I could see two boards-look at the photo below:
I focused on the power board first since the complaint was no power.
With visual inspection I saw two SMD resistors were burnt and checked further and found another low ohm resistor was opened circuit too-see the photos below:
Next, I continued to check all components in the power supply board and found the main power transistor with the part number BU3150BF shorted.
Below is the datasheet of the transistor and you can click on the photo below to view the datasheet:
After spending some times to check on the power supply side I concluded that there were only four bad components-see the photo below:
Once the components were replaced and powered on it worked like charm.
