Voltage Surge Shorted Two Mosfets And Blew The Fuse In Samsung LED TV LA32D451G3
This TV was brought from my neighborhood with the complaint that it was found dead when switched on one day. After opening the back cover and subjecting it to a thorough cleaning, I looked for the problem creator in the power supply area.
There was no output, which led me to trace a blown fuse. Further checking revealed dead short of two Mosfets that drove the back light. I removed the connector of backlight and checked the LEDs using my LED tester and found it to be working.
The Mosfet number used was 5N50 (5A, 500V). I used 6N90 (6A, 900V) instead and wired it providing heat zincs and fixing it on the metal chassis. Then when I powered the board after replacing the fuse, the output was present.
Then connected the mother board and found the TV to be working well, upon which I closed the back cover and allowed the TV to be on for several hours before delivering it to the customer. Mission accomplished and satisfaction got added to the collection with pleasure!
