    Which capacitor should I replace in the or all of them ?

  • Jim Hagen Nov 14, 2011

    On the power supply I would replace at a minimum:
    C14 - 4.7ufd 50v UPW1H4R7MDD
    C4 - 1ufd 50v UPW1H010MDD
    C8 - 100ufd 25v UHE1E101MED
    C10 - 470ufd 16v UHE1C471MPD
    C12 - 1000ufd 10v UHE1A102MPD

    There are 4 others in the supply that were not grossly bad.
    C1 - 22ufd 400v EEU-EE2G220
    C7 - 220ufd 25v UHE1E221MPD
    C11 - Same as C10
    C13 - Same as C10

    Logic board:
    E5 - 33uf 35v EEU-FM1A471
    E6 - Same as E5

    Part Numbers of replacement caps are Nichicon or Panasonic.

    Note: Caps on the logic board are extremely hard to replace due to the internal ground plane.

    Contact me if this is beyond your skills for possible repair.

I have two CM7000's. Both stuck in RED light and failed to boot. After replacing C10 & C12 of the power supply with 470uF/25V capacitors on both units, the problem is fixed.

    Please note that it is best to replace these caps with higher voltage
    rating part (I used 470uF/25V). I found C10 and C12 are getting hot.
    Continuously working under hi-temp may be the cause of premature
    failure. The box started working after C10 and C12 replacement but the
    picture was very unstable. Occasionally the box still hang. I have to
    plug and unplug the power repeatedly to force the box to reboot. I have
    to replace C11, C13, E5 and E6.

BOOT OPEN but not open warning light on dashboard say this with red warning light

The sensor is located and probably built into the boot latch. The sensor is good because the light goes off if you close it slowly. the latch is just worn out with that particular part. Replace the latch. It is not hard to replace if you have a few hand tools.

Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.

When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

The last led light blinks green and sometimes it turns solid red

red light is stands for hardware boot and the green one is stands for system boot and disc boot. when red light remains solid it means your system is in 0% cpu usage and nothing doing, stop working
