    I got a monitor here i wonder if anybody has worked with. Its a very high resolution 22.5
    inch. I need another power supply I think. Can't find any documentation, Sony bought the
    company out and closed it down, cause the technology was too advanced. So I
    have a 200 dpi $10,000 monitor I need documentation for, namely the power pins.
    Model MD22292-B2 or IBM 9503-DG1/DG3. I don't know if Sony ever sold this model
    and used another #. Its a 6 pin connector.

    I had IBM looking up #s but the docs listed on the website are not available.

    Luck, I found the old broken supply. Things listed at 16 volts 10 amps.
    Probably uses all 6 pins.

    You probably won't find documentation. Just fix the original power supply,
    any competent tech should be able to.

    I don't think i would try to fix it. Its the second one that failed.
    Someone sent me the docs info.

    Maybe I will try to fix it. Such a hard deal trying to find another 16 volt supply. I
    found one for $300. The IBM is on back order @$150.

    Delta supply used in IDtech IBM model, now Lenovo, but monitor not
    available due to Sony.

    16 volt supplies are hard to find. I did find one by Acopian for $270.
    I can get the orginal with some wait for $150. I looked at the supply
    and its varying voltage constantly resetting. Nothing obvious I
    can find.

    Did you check the ESR of all the electrolytic capacitors? That's where I
    start when diagnosing switchmode power supplies.

    Probably doesn't have to be 16V exactly, 14-20V or so would probably be just
    fine, but I don't think the original supply should be hard to fix. If you
    don't know how, take it to a tech who does.

    A lot of IBM laptops use 16V power supplies.

    I didn't check the caps. I'll give it a shot. The supply is on order, but
    that might be a problem since its not in stock. The logic seems a bit too complex
    to troubleshoot without a diagram. You would think that the problem is likely a heat
    overload problem.

  11. James Sweet

    James Sweet Guest

    I wouldn't. I would think the problem is likely bad capacitors, I see it all
    the time, probably 80% of SMPS problems.
  12. GregS

    isn't that the major cause of capacitor failure ?

  13. James Sweet

    They fail for a variety of reasons, age, heat, electrical conditions, there
    was a large batch with defective electrolyte.

    Usually when they start to go, they work better as they warm up.
  14. Did you check the electrolytic capacitors? (Sorry if I missed this
    in a previous reply.)

    There are 15 V power supplies on eBay. Some may have enough adjustment
    range to give you 16 V if that is absolutely needed.

    I got my ESR meter and will check today.
    The OEM supply has a coaxial looking supply cord. It has a little red
    wire running through the center bundle for a sense line. I don't see
    anything like that often.
