Thread: PC Convertible display adapter help needed.

  1. Default PC Convertible display adapter help needed.

    Hello! I have a PC Convertable display adapter and one of the capacitors on the board has gone bad Photo Jun 29, 11 11 49-min2.jpg. I have the number from another capacitor on the boardPhoto Jun 29, 11 12 28-min1.jpg which is 106, 16k, but I can't find a replacement capacitor for it. The capacitors have three legs. If anyone has any information on these capacitors I would be very grateful.

    Those are old-style tantalums. IBM was very fond of those.

    100uF, 16V. You can use one with two legs as a replacement.

    -+- , so they can't be installed backwards.

    Right, of course. 107 would be 100 μF. Hate those numbers...

    It's easy if you think in scientific notation 106 = 10. x 10⁶ pF.
