Sudden Power Surge Blew SMPS In Two HAIER LED TVS MODEL LE22B600

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These two LED TVs belonged to the hospital where I work. They were brought with the complaints that both were dead after a sudden power surge due to lightning.

Case 1 :

This was very simple. One of the two SR360 diodes was short. I replaced both. I detected this using the Ring Tester, which showed a short somewhere. From my experience, I know these diodes fail and that is how I was able to quickly detect the problem. After checking all other components and also looking for any track cuts, when I powered, the outputs were found ok. Then I connected the mother board and powered it on.

It worked very well. I closed the case after testing it for a reasonable time. I am giving only the photo of the result. Defective components are shown along with the second case at the last. Both TVs had identical boards inside.

Case 2:

When I checked the SMPS, I found that the fuse was intact, which from my experience, need not be a good sign at all! There were no shorts of diodes nor did the Ring Tester show any unhealthy condition. So, I powered it up and checked for output after disconnecting the mother board. There was no output. The startup voltage was present on the 6 pin SMD IC. But the oscillation was not taking place. I tried after checking all components both in primary and secondary thoroughly and also by replacing the opto-coupler, the TL431 IC etc. as these can cause problems. But there was no output still. As I was not happy with the ESR readings of the caps in Power Supply, replaced these also. But still there was no oscillation taking place, which was a clear indication of failure of the PWM.

So, I removed the six pin SMD IC and connected a four wire module in its place; Green wire to B+, Black to Hot Ground, Red to Run DC and white to opto-coupler. I connected a Brown Wire to the Drain marked on the Module and soldered it to B+ return from the SMPS primary to enable switching. (As we all know, the switching takes place as this pin of the SMPS is pulled to ground through the Mosfet, gate controlled by the PWM IC at very fast rates). After switching it on and finding the 12V output, I fixed the module on the heat zinc of the Mosfet (The Mosfet was intact and did not suffer any damage!). I had fixed the Mosfet on the module to enable this fitting. Following pictures might be of more help:

The next problem started after I connected the power supply board to the mother board! The set got on but went to standby mode without any apparent reasons. Sometimes the TV will work for a few minutes or hours or immediately it would go to standby when switched on. Naturally, my suspicion was on all the electrolytic caps. True enough, my new ESR meter showed unhealthy readings of the caps. I went ahead and replaced the caps on the mother board as well. But problem was not solved. I consulted my techie friends, who asked me to check the 3.3V and 1.8V, which were steady and perfect on check up. What could be wrong? I was scratching my head for quite a long time. But when I was increasing the volume, may be a reflex action from experience, I noticed the set going to standby immediately.



Then I removed the speaker connections and allowed it to run. There was no problem for hours together. In all these checking processes, a couple of days went by, though. I checked the speakers connecting it to my Amplifier and noticed that one speaker was getting shorted occasionally, as the coil was getting jammed. As the amplifier had speaker protection, it did not get affected. So, I connected some other speakers to the TV and allowed it to run for hours, increasing the volume to the maximum. There was no problem. So, I ordered for a new pair of same type of Speakers and got it later. Fixed the new speakers and allowed the TV to run for hours together again. It worked very well bringing a sigh of relief to me. Mission accomplished and intensified satisfaction got collected!

      Excellent fault finding skills sir! Do you have a link for the four wire module which you referred to? I have repaired many switched mode power supplies but have never come across this module! Always learning something new. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for another great repair that again explains how to use these 4 wire universal pwm modules Parasuraman! Also how to zoom-in by using CTRL and external scroll mouse was new to me because my Thinkpad T430s laptop's mousepad never worked with this feature. After connecting a scroll mouse to one of the Thinkpad's usb ports that indeed worked splendidly!

    Finding that same 4 wire universal pwm module however is close to impossible! I searched for one but could not find it.

      After looking back on one of your previous articles that had a good photo of this module in the https://jestineyong.com/cracked-unknown-pwm-replaced-by-universal-module-in-pressure-monitor-smps/ article, I used the Aliexpres feature that searches for that same module. And I finally found it here => https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/1005003050193371.html?gatewayAdapt=glo2nld
      But apparently I already bought that module in the past and noticed the difference with your module. The SSH 10N60B mosfet with a C2482 transistor probably are the same but my module uses two much smaller resistors standing up. One red-red-silver-gold and the other brown-red-black-white-red(orange?). And were your schematic shows +B my module only says + 110V. And the included instructions was complete Chinese to me sadly. So if you have a decent English instruction guide you could share that would be great!

        I think that I've just found the right instruction guide in English here:
        But according to the text it is a 3 wire module?

      Very true! Poor quality! Better to change it even from a new board!
