Is this a capacitor? Need Help!!
Is this a capacitor? Need Help!! –
I have been having a black screen problem for a while and thought I could open the case and look into it. I found a damaged?? surface mount component (looks like a capacitor, see the attached image below). and took it out. Now I need to know its type/value to replace it.
Does anyone know what kind of component is it and the value? Capacitor? Resistor? It says "J106" on it. I have a v1 board.
Looks like when I remove it the system behaves the same way (still black screen and there is cd spinning activiy as normal). When I shortcut it I still get black screen but cd stops spinning.
I really don't know if it will help with my black screen problem but basically this is my only hope at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,
P.S: Black screen is not related to modchip installation. I have Neo 4.1 on it for over a year and it was working fine. It just gradually stopped working.
Its a diode and i wouldnt be suprised by shorting it out you may have blown a fuse also.
I believe it's a polarised capacitor, 10 microFarads. It wasn't very clear on your picture but I took it to be the SMD just above the circled 4.
Thanks very much for both replys...
charlie_ps2: I am not too familiar with electronic components. Do I also need to know the voltage? like 10uf 50v? or 100v?
Also since you think it's a polarized capacitor, I assume that I would need to pay attention to "+" and "-" sides when soldering. In that picture where would be the "+" side? the one closer to the yellow 4 sign or the other one? Can you tell?
Lastly, of all the different capacitor types which should I be looking for (ceramic, aluminum electrolytic, metelozied etc). I am really lost here. Any specific pointers would be great.
Again, Thanks a million!!!
Yes you need to pay attention to the +/-. It's a TANTALUM capacitor at location C604. 50v or 100v doesn't matter because the voltages in the PS2 are lower than those limits. In your diagram's orientation, + is towards the top (towards the 2 circled).
