Voltlog #130 – InTheMail

Last InTheMail video was published almost two months ago so I think you will appreciate this one where I got some interesting stuff from the usual Chinese sources.

Voltlog #120 – Mini DC Power Supply Review

So I guess a gadget like this is worth 10$ because you could replace that linear breadboard power supply with a more efficient one, which will give you voltage and current display as well as adjustable output.

Here are some images I took during the teardown of the mini power supply:

Voltlog #99 – Samsung TV Power Supply Board Repair MK32P5T BN44-00213A

In this video I am repairing a power supply board from a Samsung TV. The part number for the power supply board is MK32P5T (BN44-00213A). The TV was showing the stand-by led but refused to turn on. It turns out this was a common problem with a simple fix.

Voltlog #92 – InTheMail

Welcome to another Voltlog, today we’ll be taking a look at what I’ve been receiving in the mail recently. As much as you guys like watching this stuff, I also like getting all these electronic modules from China. I find it interesting every time I get my hands on a new circuit.

As always I appreciate feedback and discussions in the comments section below, please let me know what you think and don’t forget to like the video, that is always a clear indication of what kind of content you guys like seeing.

Voltlog #91 – Nokia IP330 Firewall Teardown

Today we are taking a look at this old network equipment, it’s a Nokia IP330 Firewall. This router / firewall was released probably in 2000 or something similar, I couldn’t find any exact info on the release date but we can safely assume it’s at least 15 years old

Don’t forget to like & comment, that helps the channel grow.

 

Voltlog #72 – DIY AC-DC Off-Line Converter With TNY276/TNY277

This is the first AC-DC power supply that I’m designing and building. Everything seems to work up to a point where the chip (TNY 276 from Power Integration) gets too hot and enters thermal protection. This is where I’m asking my viewers help to jump in with suggestions on what might be wrong.

This is part 2 where I get the circuit working by switching from the TNY276 to the TNY277 which has a higher power rating and is probably the proper IC to use with this transformer (EE1616 ER2741)

And this is part 3 of the video where I finally find the real fault in the circuit. It turns out I was right, this circuit should have worked with the TNY276 as well and it wasn’t the higher power rating of the TNY277 that fixed the issue.

Voltlog #69 – LM317 Kit Assembly Fail

Sometimes, when I have some spare time I like assembling these cheap kits coming from China. Today I am assembling an LM317 adjustable power supply kit complete with voltmeter. Unfortunately they sent me a wrong resistor value so the kit didn’t work as expected but I was able to fix it in the end.

Voltlog #64 – DIY Adjustable Power Supply With Enclosure

Today I’m going to be building a complete DIY analog bench power supply. The actual analog power supply kit (0-30V 0-3A) that I’m going to be using, is this one, it was shown and assembled in voltlog #8. Besides that I’m going to be using this plastic enclosure which I think is quite nice and perfect for such a project, this one can also be found on banggood and there will be links in the description for all the items used in this build.
