This repair kit is for the PSU (power supply unit) Â of a Philips WAC3500 wireless music centre / hifi. Â The fault is that the unit will not switch on - classic PSU failure!
The capacitors included in the kit are of superior quality to those of the original and should solve (and help prevent a repeat of) the bulging resistor problem.
The repair is relatively straightforward - simply access the PSU in your WAC3500 and replace the capacitors with those included in the kit only basic soldering skills are required.
The kit contains the following quality Panasonic/Rubycon capacitors:-
- 2x Â 220ÂµF 10V 2.5mm
- 1x Â 470ÂµF 10V 3.5mm
- 1x Â 680ÂµF 16V 3.5mm
- 2x Â 1000ÂµF 16V 3.5mm
- 1x Â 1500ÂµF 16V 5.0mm
- 1x Â 330ÂµF 35V 3.5mm
- 1x Â 680ÂµF 35V 5.0mm
All capacitors contained within this kit are designed to operate in high temperature environments (upto 105c) and all are appropriate dimensions to fit perfectly in place of the original capacitors (the dimension given above is the lead spacing).
As with most of our repair kits, a basic ability to solder is all that is required to affect a successful repair - though please bear in mind that PSU's operate at high voltages and thus suitable precautions should be taken.
