[Solved] How to fix M24E14 M24EI4 power supply board

qwe1234 2,695 760 November 10, 2009 at 11:25 PM
My Soyo 24 monitor that I bought last year at a geeks deal has just died on me today.
Its internal power supply, which most likely is a problem, M24E14 great wall, is nowhere seems to be found but the taobao.com web site.
The zener ZD1 has burned out therefore likely some other components dead too.
Solved by substitution a USA made generic PSU that has required voltage.
Quote from bizcards View Post :
I replaced (adapted) the ZD1 with an axial 30V 1 watt zener diode (to prevent overheating) and it worked like a charm, just watch out for polarity when replacing it. I also replaced a couple of bulked top caps under one of the heatsink.

I hope this will help you as well

Regards

I'd definitely be in if there are any extras, or a future order.

At this point, we're nearing the date where we can file a complaint with paypal about not receiving goods (45 day window). Since we haven't heard from AsbestosPudding, and he isn't responding to PMs, it may be time to get that ball rolling, unfortunately...

Hey guys, sorry I haven't updated in a while. I got FreudianS's email. I've been going back and forth with the supplier, and the original shop we were trying to get the supplies from didn't have enough in stock. I've been going back and forth with them and it's usually 2-3 days between responses. I've gotta speak with the supplier, and they're just the middleman, I don't speak Chinese so I can't contact these electronics shops directly.

At this point I've tried 3 different shops and none have had the quantity I requested in stock. I've suggested trying to place a bunch of smaller orders and I'm waiting on a response about that. What I've learned from this whole deal is that these little Chinese shops say they have 50 of something when in fact they only have one or two or sometimes none at all in order to make it seem like they are a huge operation when in fact they're just a mom & pop store, or simply to enhance their search results. Nobody seems to think it's out of the ordinary, either, different cultures, I guess?

I'm as frustrated as you all are - remember I've got a dead monitor sitting in the closet too waiting on a replacement supply. If you're tired of waiting then I can request a refund from the supplier and issue a Paypal refund to you, but I guarantee I'm not going anywhere and I'm gonna get these supplies if it takes me til Christmas. I already easily fixed one monitor and I'm not happy about my second one being a 24" paperweight.

How about you refund our paypal payments, and allow us to pay you again...that would reset the 45 day clock we have with paypal...

That's fine, I'll transfer funds back into my Paypal account and then refund you as soon as the transfer is complete. Anybody else who wants me to do so I'd be glad to. I'm not out to scam anybody. Like I said, I want my supply just as much as you all do. FYI I just sent another reminder email out to China to get back to me about the multiple order idea.

That's great.

Tomorrow (Friday) is day 43, so I'll open an issue with paypal since I'm entirely unlikely to think about this over the weekend...unless you refund the money before then, in which case I'll just send it back to you to reset the 45 day clock.

Thanks!

I have four of these monitors, 2 died, 1 is about ready to die. I would like to buy at least 1 if you have extras.

For some reason this board is sketchy at providing thread updates via email. He (asbestos) responds to his paypal email though. I'll give him a plug to check up on us.
