    Have an smps out of a HP Compaq with no output.

    Tracked down to no startup voltage whatsoever. Checked all surrounding components which appear ok.
    Curious about the ( TVS) P6KE200A diode as it shows a similar diode in the attached schematics.
    Actually the circuit below is almost identical in the HP unit which uses a TNY268 switcher.

    Diode tests ok as far as diode test is concerned but both in the schematic below and on the board in question it is shown with zener characteristics.

    I removed the diode and tested it on a zener tester which showed 12.9v.
    Am I barking up the wrong tree here or should the P6KE200A not be higher than that and how would one test it anyhow...?

    There is an article on testing a TVS that @Harald Kapp linked to a few years back.
    May be of use to you.
