what do you call desoldering braid here in australia? i need to get some to desolder a capacitor from a PSU...
this is what it is: http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...5Fid=64%2D2090
i searched the dick smith site and jay car, but no luck...
and on 220~240V psus, Resistor 10 (R10), can you tell me what replacements i should be looking for? along with Resistor 4. (R4)
cant help you with the resistor info but yes that is the desoldering braid and also dick smith have it all on this page
dicksmith desoldering stuff
i'm searching on the site but i get nothing, no results on desoldering stuff! can't you give me a direct link?
would R10 be the same as R11?
:\ they aren't lookin too good...
i know, till now i got the capacitor replacement bits from dick smith, but i can't figure out what resistors to get..
go to dickies, take the faulty resistor, and find the nerdiest guy you can find who looks like he'd just LOVE to help you...
then ask if he can replace that capacitor.. it'll only cost you 5 cents
the capacitor was like 85 cents... they said they need the EXACT colours of the resistors, and did you think i wouldn't have checked dickies?
hahahahaha nerdie... not me but...
Black = 0
Brown = 1
Red = 2
Orange = 3
Yellow = 4
green = 5
blue = 6
purple / violet = 7
grey = 8
white = 9
second to last colour is the multiplier - i.e. red means times by 10 to the power of 2
last colour is the tolerance - usually gold or silver band (+-5% / +- 10% etc)
oh and boom - them two dead caps... careful repairing power supplies... 240V can do nasty things - you may replace these parts andfind the thing that caused them to die still exists else where on the board and will just kill the parts all over again - always where safety glasses when turning on a possibly faulty power supply after attempting to fix - I blew to pieces a fuse the other week - litterally - it turned into molten projectiles and I was just damed lucky not to loose an eye!
The shot of the resistors helps very little needs to be above not from the side...
also by the look of the side of that white connector and those caps... some series short has happened some where... make sure you find it before powering back on.
The caps and resistor were not very likely to be the cause of that short - they would just be the result of to much current flowing through them above their ratings.
What version PS2 are you working on...
the only powersupply I have with me is nothing like that one - as it is from a V4.
R11 = red violet silver gold. (0.27ohms 1/2 watt or a 1 watt)
R10 = grey red black gold (83ohms 1/4 watt)
R04 = could not find on my PSU - only a R104
but they are more than likely totally different resistors as the resistor numbers would more than likely change between versions...
The two caps - I would not bother with solder braid - just snip them off - or get your own with a tonne of solder on it and heat both legs at the same time and then pull it loose.
