GCOD – Green Circle of Death – Humax FoxSAT-HD STB PSU Repair

from an earlier post….

“But this has some good news, because I managed to salvage a 3300uF 16v Capacitor from this broken to repair the in my !”

It would appear that Humax have used rubbish cheap capacitors in the STB, and after 24 months, it will stop working with the “GCOD – Green Circle of Death”, when if you turn on your STB, it will just sit there, with green leds rotating in a  circle, The fix is to replace

– 680 uF  25 volts (this is the 12v line to the LNB)

– 2200uF 10 volts

as a quick fix, I’ve just replaced C12, with a 3300uF 16v cap, and I now have a working STB, but I’ve got some Panasonic Caps, on order from Boot Ferrule Man.

It’s a very quick fix, if you can use a soldering iron and solder sucker!
