    I had my Mastech HY6003D Constant-Current Constant-Voltage power supply smoke and quit working one day after a year of use. I use the HY6003D to constant-current charge and equalize my aircraft battery. Aircraft batteries are very expensive like $400+ so getting extended life out of them is important. I have gotten over 9 1/2 years on the last battery so I am confident that the equalizing with constant-current is helping with longevity although some do not buy into this theory.

    I acquired a schematic for a HY5003 power supply as the manufacture's rep said it was functionally equivalent, but I am not so sure. See attached schematic. The smoke came from the two .82 ohm 5 watt ceramic resistors, R12A and R14A, on the collectors of the output transistors, V21 and V20. After many component checks both in and out of the circuit board, I finally found the 741 op amps, N1 and N2, bad and all is well with new resistors and op amps. I did notice the center tap of coil N5 of transformer T1 does not go to ground as the schematic shows, but I don't know if that is specific on the HY5003 or is a misprint, but it did cause some problems for me until I used another known ground for testing purposes. This is a tricky power supply in that it has 4 relays, K1a, K2A, K3a, K4a, that actually switch as the constant voltage is increased with the switching going to different diode rectifiers, D1-D2 and D3-D4. I haven't figured out how that exactly works.

    Also V29A shows as a PNP transistor, but C708 is a NPN and in a TO-92 can form whereas the transistor on the board was not a can. I am assuming C708 translates to a 2sc708. The other C708, V28A, shows as a NPN so I imagine the Chinese person drawing the schematic was slightly confused. When testing V29A and V28A, they both tested as NPN transistors.

    This was an interesting exercise to say the least
