I've successfully changed a couples of those along with the SMD cap underneath with good results on 'dead boards' but haven't seen one as damaged as that though?mentholflash01 said:hi everyone
wat would cause this can anyone tell me
ive gone thruo 3 power leads so far
Thank feck you told mentholflash01 different ....... lolTWOBEERCANS said:looks like a s/c diode mate - when the transistor switches of from the transformer there is a back surge - normally this would be diverted back into the coil and protect the transistor. check D1 and D2 just behind it.
find the faulty component before you restart the supply - you could be causing more problems by letting the chopper blow up like that LOL
