Emerson LD200EM8 LCD TV/DVD combo, wont turn on.

Customer Question

Emerson LD200EM8 LCD/DVD combo, repairing power supply section. Need value of very small Zener Diode D624 on hot side of switching transformer, it is shorted among some other faulty parts mentioned below. The only markings I can maybe read appear ? to be "3 8 B"..? ?. I think that is what the markings are, it is very very hard to read and it is burnt and discolored. Maybe 38Volt 1/4 watt??? I really am not sure of the number on the diode, can you help me.

I also found an open 4 Amp line fuse, a shorted Zener Diode D624 (voltage rating??) on primary side of SMPS mentioned earlier, a shorted Q601(2sk3563,power mosfet on SMPS primary) and a shorted D901 "fast" diode on secondary side. Is there anything else that commonly causes the dead set symptom on this model that I might have missed????

Thank You

Dear Noetvs,

Thank you for your reply, I was not interested in replacing the entire boaard, so the ebay link is not what I want to do and the 2nd link only wants to sell an entire board and they say it is OUT OF STOCK so that is no help what so ever. The 3rd link does NOT work, the page comes up with an error message, I have tried it on two different computers and it does not go through. So, I am batting a Zero for Three.

 

I DO NOT need to order any parts, I HAVE ALL THE PARTS I need to fix this unit, I have already installed the fuse, the mosfet and the high speed diode, and I have a complete stock of Zener diodes so as my original question was worded, I just want to know the "voltage" of the shorted zener diode D624 so I can replace it. The only markings I can maybe make out on the damaged and hard to read part are " 3 8 B", but I am only guessing. So, if you can find a diagram or parts list for the board and tell me the voltage of the Zener or the industry standard part number or even a ECG/NTE number it will be most appreciated.... or can you direct me to information on the internet that will answer my question?

Please give me some kind of reply so I know that you are working with me on this, I am looking for your assistance on this.

Thank You

Hi, good morning !!. I am here in my shop, I have a tv emerson with me ( working) I did open and find your Diode number:

Now I really am confused, I found someone who has a partial diagram for the unit

and it specifies a MTZJT-7739B, a 39 volt zener.

After looking at the burnt part even closer, it appears that the number is XXXXX fact 3 9 B .

Are you 100% certain about your information? Hmmmm, what should I do?

Ok, as long as you are sure that it is in fact a 33 volt zener diode I wlll accept that. Pray that I don't get smoke when I plug it in!

Thank You for your assistance and answering my question.

Dear Noetvs,

Well, here is some information for you. I now have a PDF of the Emerson/Fuani LD200EM8

 

http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/sm/LD200EM8.pdf

 

On the parts list on page 71 you will see that D624 is in fact a

39 volt zener, MTZJT-7739B and NOT a 33 volt zener as your

reply stated.

Also on Page 45, it shows a schematic of the power supply, D624 is shown with it's cathode connected to the "source" of Q601 power MOSFET, and the anode is connected to ground.

 

Once I replaced the incorrect 33 volt zener with the proper 39 volt zener the unit now works.

 

I really wish that you would have been 100% certain of your information that you gave to me, it would have saved me a lot of time and some MONEY$$$. I hope that this information and the PDF manual helps you in the future. Hmmmm, I probably won't get a credit for the fee that I paid, maybe I should get paid?

Do you know we have a range parameter for some power supply parts Right?????. Like 1uf 160V you can use 2.2 , 3.3 uf to 160 Volts.......... Right?.. Please dont try to show me confuse electronics skills...WE HAVE PARAMETERS VOLTAGE where we can work and replace different size diodes, and still work same.........PARAMETERS OR RANGE VALUE PARTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!..... Please can you explain to me about the difference in this diode.. 33V--39V ????????????.....(6Volts???????, are you think whit 6 VOLTS you will have a problems...........Now, did you see how is connected in the power supply?...............Don'T worry about your money......Let me try to email to justanswer and request your money back.........I did replace a dozen diodes like this.....Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Thank you .
