If you need a computer SMPS service manual, then allow me to share with you a few tips to ensure you get only the best quality manual.
I know its not easy to find a high-quality manual for servicing and repairing switch mode power supplies or SMPS. Actually, Ive downloaded a couple of PDF repair guides but they werent much help.
Here are some negative things about those guides
(1) The instructions were difficult to understand.
(2) The instructions were not organized in a proper manner. For example, basic chapters like understanding SMPS components and how to read schematic diagrams were placed at the END of the manual!
And worst of all
(3) Those computer SMPS service manuals did not have any step-by-step photo instructions!
Now Im going to tell you how I discovered the best guide on troubleshooting and fixing all types of SMPS not just computer SMPS.
The first thing I did was visit an online forum that is related to the subject of electronics. Believe me, youll find many seasoned technicians hanging around electronics forums.
Some are very friendly and would be willing to offer valuable tips, advice and resources. In fact, I found a very high quality computer SMPS service manual thru recommendation from a respected forum member.
So you should definitely seek help from online forums. If you post your questions properly, youd great answers from forum members including links to the best resources on repairing SMPS.
A couple more tips
Make sure you get a SMPS repair guide that teaches you everything in a step-by-step fashion AND provides in-depth information on safety guidelines, tools and test equipment to conduct proper SMPS repair and troubleshooting.
Some SMPS reparation manuals do not provide such information which I think is a shame because topics on safety and testing tools are absolutely crucial.
LastlyAnd this is very, very important!
Try obtaining a manual that includes PERSONAL email consultation support from technicians who are experts in repairing SMPS.
If you have personal email access to an expert, then I guarantee youll have very little trouble repairing faulty switch mode power supplies.
Think about it, any problems you may have can easily be addressed by sending an email to the expert. Now thats POWERFUL!
