Extra Electronic Components Answered

I got an old DVD player, opened it up, and got: -11, 10vdc 47uf caps -6, 16v 10uf caps -5, 10v 220uf caps -6, 6.3v 470uf caps -2, 10v 1200uf caps -2, 16v 820uf caps -2, 10v 1000uf caps -2, 10v 100uf caps -100v 22uf cap -25v 220uf cap ( why is it brown/gold colored?) -Power regulaters (?) *says:C3852, 96 *says:C3852, 95 *says:C3852, 94 (has a heat sink) *says:STR, G6651, 95, 06 Thats about it. What can I do with these?

a 220 uf ceramic capacitor? I am not sure I have ever seen one of those. If it is in a canister (electrolytic), some were blue, some were gold, but I never inquired as to why. Maybe a higher grade or lower variance +_

. I dunno. Just going by the color. I guess I should have used may be, instead of probably.

Oh I wasn't trying to pick on you or anything. It is just that I normally ceramics were measured in picofarads (I thought anyways), or is my memory failing me again *sigh*

. All the ceramics I've seen were pF (I think the Wikipedia entry even mentions that they are usually labeled in pF) - I just wasn't paying enough attention. . No problem with the correction. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. ;)

Yes, but I destroyed it in the process of removing it.

That stinks, you could've made one of those Maglite burning lazer things.'

No, he called it a DVD player,and you need the laser diode out of a DVD burner to make a burning laser.

Don't assume that a 'burn' capacity makes a LASER diode capable of burning things. After all, they don't melt the plastic component of the discs... L

"This Instructable WILL NOT WORK with any CD burner/player diodes or DVD player diodes!" That's what I meant, that a drive has a 'burn' function doesn't necessarily mean that the diode can be used to burn things. L

That's precisely the right components to build a DVD player ;-) Cheers, Pat. Pending

if they are "through hole" soldered, or worse yet, surface mounted, it is almost more trouble to remove them and still not fry them, then buying new. I have been there, especially with IC's. The components (through hole soldering means the solder goes all the way through the hole to the other side) sadly, if removed safely, will have short "legs" too. Sorry, I don't mean to sound like a pessimist.

They were normal, and the legs are long enough to be easily resoldered. I dont think I messed them up (they are already off the board). Still, any ideas?

are most of your caps "can" (canister) style ? The Can caps are normally used as filters to quiet down any ripple in the voltage (keeping it as close to DC as possible) *says:C3852, 96 *says:C3852, 95 *says:C3852, 94 (has a heat sink) Sound like power transistors, but I am not sure.

Yes, I think that they are the electrolytic ones.
I'm not sure...they might be power transistors, if so, could I use them for my flyback thing?

After searching the web for HV diodes (which you'll probably need to make the flyback circuit safe), I've only been able to find one person on eBay who sells them: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZff77hh

I've bought some (and have yet to use them) and still need to buy about 3 more for one of my projects...

What do you mean by safe? Its high voltage isn't it? X<)

Yes, but to make the circuit from getting any juice flowing backwards into it, you need HV diodes to block any back flow. Wait till I get the time to construct a project similar to this one. That's gonna be a nice HV device (just in time for the holidays)... (As long as I don't fry, that is :P )

I am unable to locate specs for these (says:C3852, 96 C3852, 95 C3852, 94) for some reason, maybe someone else has them ?
