PEE_WEE -- please advise Magnavox 27TS54C101 Chassis 27B800-7562
Pee Wee, I have a Magnavox 27TS54C101 Chassis 27B800-7562 that has no picture or sound -- all I hear is a faint ticking coming from the electronics (flyback?) when I turn it on. Upon opening the unit, I see that C506 is charred and smokes when trying to turn on the TV.
Please confirm that C506 = 820pF 2kV capacitor
Can capacitors just go bad? That is, if I replace this capacitor (there are no other visible problems the circuit board) should that resolve the problem or is the burned capacitor a symptom of bigger issues with the transformer or power supply?
