Electronics Repair FAQ and Testimonials- Part 32

good day to you Mr. Jestine.thanks a lot for the june repair newsletter.by the way my daughter gave me her old laptop,an LG(IBM) which has some problem and she cannot use that is why she gave it to me to fix what problem it may have.luckily i got an original OS of winxp from one of my friends and i formatted it totally to get rid of the virus in which some of my flash drive that i used was also damaged when i used this laptop before i decided to reformat.

to make the story short,it works well but after few weeks the said laptop becomes intermittent.when i press the middle part of motherboard,screen display will be ok,once i depress screen will be black.i tried also using external monitor to see if the monitor is at fault but also no display on the external monitor so i assume the problem is in the MOBO.

sir, when power on the monitor screen show blue with retrace line but next time power on the display is white with retrace line (this is IBM CRT 14”monitor model no – 6540 – 02e) and horizontal out put transistor(C5802) is very hot. how i solve this out put hot problem  and retrace line ?

Hi Nihar,

retrace line are due to excessive  g2 voltage or G1 voltage is too low. Sometimes a weak screen also can produce retrace lines. Before that you must check why the HOT is so hot. Could it be the B+ voltage is too high or the signal pulse to base of HOT is abnormal or if the flyback itself have problem?

Hi Jestine , Thankyou for the info on the dvd video machine , i checked the power suply and found the 5 volt line to one of the chips rather low due to a resister loosing value in other words it was open circuit causing a loss of voltage to one of the chips also on checking the tape mechanism i fount that one of the cogs were out of line , Thanks once again .


Goodday. Jestine can I replace a resistor 2. 2RJ 5w with a 5w 3K3J on a TV power supply.

2.2R means 2.2 ohm and you can’t replace with a 3.3 k ohm resistor . However you can replace with a 3.3 ohm resistor.
