    Lilliput - Wrong voltage plugged in = Now won't work.???

    Hey guys, new here and a newb with these things. Could really use some help, and I'm sorry if this issue has been posted before. I tried searching, but couldn't really think of any search words...

    I have a Lilliput 619GL and an external Tekkeon battery to run it (I do video production, and I use this as an external monitor for my camera).

    I loaned it to a friend to use on a shoot, and he accidentally plugged the wrong power supply into the monitor. It powered up, he heard a pop, and a little smoke I believe.

    Well, now it powers up and works just fine for about 5 minutes. Then it goes black and white for a second, then powers off completely. If I try it again, it powers up for 30 seconds, then goes off.

    I've got a friend who's pretty handy when it comes to electronics, and I'm wondering if anyone could walk me through a fix. Or is this even fixable? Or could you point me in the right direction? Or can anyone offer any help at all?

    It's still pretty much brand new, and I'd hate to see it thrown out...

    Wrong voltage kills electronics. if he heard a pop and a little smoke there probably is a blown capacitor. Capacitors cost like $ 0.02 and your friend should be able to walk you through replacing one. Look at the circuit board for these.



    Good luck,
    Andrew

    Thanks dude. Yeah, that's what I figured after searching for a bit...

    It's strange that it works just fine for 5-10 minutes and THEN shuts off. Either way, I think I can probably crack it open and, assuming it's a capacitor, get the problem resolved.

    Or you can just buy some more magic smoke. When the smoke escapes, the electronics usually stop working. Sounds like yours is just low, so you need this:

    It sounds more likely that some semiconductor blew up than an capacitor. Inspect the PCB in the monitor, and take some pictures and we'll help our best.

    How much is it though? If it's not too expensive it's still worth a try. Lets not rule anything out just yet...
