I understand the capacitors to my TV need replace due to the fact the TV is powering on and off on its own; however when I had to replace the capacitors on my other TV I was able to search online and order a completed pack of the capacitors need to completed the job. From my understanding the capacitors used by Samsung are inferior to the ones that the manufacturer should have installed. Is anyone able to assist me in determining which capcitors need to be replaced with a higher valued one and which ones are needed I am asking this question for several reasons one being that I do not want to breakdown my TV until I have to actually do the work.
Second only to power cords, capacitors are the most failure-prone components in old radiosand televisions.In a professional overhaul, it is common to replace all of a set's large electrolytic capacitorsand small paper capacitors. This article explains how to do that.Often, this \"recapping\" is all that the radio or TV needs to be restored to health.
These photos show the underside of a Grundig 940W radiobefore and after recapping. The second photo shows the capacitors that werereplaced. This is a multi-band radio with FM and two AM bands. A simpler radiowill have fewer capacitors, often under ten.
Non-electrolytic capacitors are not polarized. Neither end is positive or negative. They have smaller capacitance values than electrolytics, anywhere from .0001 mfd to .5 mfd. Common values are .01 mfd, .02 mfd, and .05 mfd.Below are the common types of non-electrolytic capacitors.
The most common defect in old capacitors is leakiness. An ohmmeter can't test for leakingbecause the voltage that it applies is too weak. A capacitor might look OKwhen testing with an ohmmeter, yet leak like crazy when enough voltage is applied.The same is true of modern multimeters with a capacitor test function; that functioncan tell you the capacitance value of a modern, low-voltage capacitor, but it's uselessfor checking vintage capacitors.
Disconnect one of the capacitor's leads before checking it. If it is an electrolytic, wax paper, ormolded paper capacitor, I usually just replace it, which takes less time than disconnecting,testing, and (possibly) reconnecting. The test results for those capacitors are a foregoneconclusion. If the capacitor isn't already bad, it will soon become so!
It's essential to replace old capacitors with new ones of the same capacity and voltage rating.I strongly recommend that you get a copy of your radio's schematic diagram. The schematic will show the location and value of every part in the radio,including capacitors. It often provides other information such as alignment instructions or stringing diagrams for broken dial cords.
The ARRL has a good beginner's article onhow to read a schematic(Part 1,Part 2).There are some variations in the symbols and conventions used inschematics, particularly older ones. For instance, in some older schematics, theletter M means one thousand, whereas in newer ones, it means one million.
New capacitors are readily available. Our Partspage lists a number of popular sources.Companies that cater to vintage radio collectors includeAntique Electronic Supplyand Just Radios. General supplierssuch as Mouserand Allied carry capacitors along with thousandsof other parts.
Note: Some old paper capacitors are marked at one end witha dark circle or the word \"foil.\" These markings indicate the leadthat is attached to the outer foil of the capacitor (they do not indicate polarity).In some applications, such as RF circuits, the outer foil can be used as shielding.In general, you can replace these capacitorswith ordinary non-electrolytics and it does not matter which way you install the new capacitor.
The following diagram from an old service manual shows how tointerpret color bands on round molded paper capacitors. (Click the small image to see a bigger viewthat you can print.) In the example given in the diagram, bands of the colors yellow-violet-redindicate a capacitor of the value .0047 mfd. A capacitor with the colorsyellow-violet-orange has the value .047 mfd, and so on.
Do not confuse molded paper capacitors with carbon resistors, which are also color coded.Resistors are much smaller and their background coloring often is dull brown rather than shiny black. You can easilyconfirm that a part is a capacitor by checking for resistance across its leads. Remove one lead from the circuit to test the part. Comparethe observed resistance on your meter with the predicted value indicated by the striping on the part.
The capacitor shown in the previous photo has three colored dots, whichindicate the value according to the 1-2-3 scheme shown in the diagram for roundmolded paper capacitors. For example, if the dots were coloredyellow-violet-red, the capacitor's value would be .0047 mfd as inthe previous example. Themolded arrow shows the direction in which to read the dots (in this case,from left to right).
Single section electrolytic capacitors require little explanation. Simply replace them with new unitsthat have equivalent voltage and capacitance ratings. Some single electrolytics have rather lowvoltage ratings, such as 50 volts.
Multi-unit capacitors in a cardboard tube are often found in cheaper radios.The case will have three or more colored wires coming out of one end.One wire, usually black, will be the common negative connection.The other wires will be the positive connections for each capacitor.The case often is labeled with the capacitance and voltage ratingsfor each capacitor. If those labels are absent, you will need to consult the radio'sschematic diagram.
Multi-section capacitors mounted in cans above the chassis are found in better-quality radios.The values are either printed or stamped on the side or top of the can.The bottom of the can often has metal terminals rather than colored wires. Small geometric shapes on the side andbottom of the case tell you which terminal belongs to which capacitor. By convention, these shapes are asquare, a triangle, and a semicircle. (In older radios, the can may lack coding and you will have to consult the radio's schematic to determine what each wire is connected to.)
The unit shown above contains four capacitors, each 20 mfd in value and rated for 450volts. In this case, all the capacitors happen to have the same capacitance and voltageratings, although that is frequently not the case. As the photo shows, the first three capacitorsare marked with semicircle, square, and triangle shapes, respectively. The fourth hasno marking. The next photo shows the underside of this capacitor.
Seen from underneath, the capacitor has four terminals. Three are marked with thesemicircle, square, and triangle, while the fourth has no marking. These four terminalsare the positive (+) connections for each of the four capacitors.
As with the cardboard multi-capacitor unit, all of the capacitors share a single negative (ground) connection.In this instance, it is the metal case itself which forms the ground connection.The case has metal tabs which fit into slots in the chassis. To install thisunit, you slip the tabs through the slots, twist them about one-quarter turnto secure the can, then solder one of them (it doesn't matter which) to thechassis to ensure a good electrical connection to ground.
Certain other metal can capacitors are insulated from the chassisand have a separate terminal for the ground connection. Thesehave an insulating washer between the can and the chassis. Don'tforget to put the washer back when replacing such a capacitor.
Each capacitor has two values: a voltage rating and capacitance value. Both are important. The general rule for replacing capacitors is to use values that are equal to or higher than the originally-specified values.
Voltage rating tells how much voltage the capacitor can withstand. Tube radios use highvoltage, so for safety reasons the voltage rating of the replacement must be equal or higher than the original.It does no harm to exceed the original rating somewhat. Forinstance, it is fine to replace a 250-volt rated capacitor with a 450-voltone. Almost all of the capacitors that I buy are rated for 450 volts.A few capacitors may require a higher voltagerating, such as 500 or 600 volts. Don't waste money buying capacitors withvoltage ratings vastly higher than the originals. Your radio will not work anybetter with 1000-volt capacitors than with 450-volt units.
For small, non-electrolytic capacitors, the capacitance value of the new cap should be the same as the original,with a margin of error of about 20%. It is OK to \"round off\" odd values. For instance,if the original is .05 it is fine to use .047 to replace it. The difference between .05 and .047 is only .003,less than 20% of the original value. Likewise, you can replacea .02 capacitor with .022, and so on.
In the early days of radio, capacitor values were often specified in regular values such as .2 and .04,but for technical reasons, the International Electrotechnical Commission later devised a system ofpreferred valuesthat efficiently cover the commonly-used values in a world where components have a given tolerance.That is why you'll see a 0-100 number progression such as10-12-15-18-22-27-33-39-47-56-68-82. When shopping for capacitors, you may find that .047caps are easier to find than .05 caps, because .047 is a preferred value and .05 is not.
If you have a very old schematic that calls for a regular value such as .02,remember that .022 is functionally equivalent. Similarly, .047 is the practical equivalent of .05.If you have trouble finding a capacitor with a \"round number\" value, look forthe nearest preferred value within 20% of that figure. 59ce067264
