Need to find a capacitor

Block Image

My computer won't start correctly and Ive determined I need to replace capacitor 68 C95. How can I do a search to find this?

My board number is: 820-2565-A.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Are you able to find me a schematic? Or at least a way to find out the part I need with the information given? Thank you.

by

@vipsnw Send me a email (Address is on my profile) and i'll get you what you need.

@vipsnw Having just look at your picture, those are Capacitors not diodes and they ARE NOT bad. Your problem is elsewhere. I'd love to help you on this. What is the full issue that's going on? Do the fans spin? Do you have a light on the charger?

by

Interesting. What happens is yes fans do spin, but only a blAck screen. Lights come on charger. But nothing ever happens. Computer is never moved, it just happened out of the blue.

by

@vipsnw Shine a light through the apple on the screen. Do you see an image? Does the machine make the startup chime?

Do you have schematics? What is the component number? (Most will be marked on the schematic D6895 or something similar) I get my board parts from donors or from Mouser.com.

EDIT 9-18-17 -- Peter, Here's a link to the capacitor I recommend you use.

Here's a pic to the location of the cap on the board.

I can't seem to bring up any schematics that I can read clearly. Very pixilated. The computer is model A1286 if you are able to read it. The diode I need is labeled 68 C95. Thanks much!

Send me a email and I'll see what I can do on the schematics. I do need your board's 820-xxxx number. That is on there somewhere.

Hey guys, this is intended on being a public forum to help others. If you do your "helping" in private, it doesn't help anyone else.

The proper recourse is to ask the OP to post a picture so that we can see where it is on the board (add it to the question) or post the board number (done!). Then get back with the answer on the forum so others can benefit.

It's always great to see new, quality contributors. Thanks for joining TCRS!

@refectio There is a reason why we cannot post schematics publicly. @oldturkey03 can explain.

@tcrs_circuit , I am well aware of the schematics constraint, I've had this discussion before with other members and I've been answering questions on this forum for nearly a year now (OMG...almost 1 year! :>). I never post or link schematics either (although when appropriate, just snippets supporting my answer - at OT's & Mayer's request).

To be fair, I never asked you to post the schematic , just to share your answer with everyone else rather than doing it privately.

Thanks again for contributing!

@refectio, nor did I but those are answers on why we want our forum in a certain format. Everybody shall benefit from the questions and answers, not just people that get the email interchange etc. Your guidance to both @vipsnw and @tcrs_circuit needed to be an answer. What I know of you, is that once the question is clarified you we'll make comments to your already existing answer and again provide an excellent solution.

I have the schematic, it can be found freely on the web. No doubt TCRS has it too. The problem is that you gave us the SMD marking code on the diode. That doesn't really hep us in regards to the schematic. What we need to see is where this diode is in relation to the other components so that we can identify its designator. Both @oldturkey and I have already asked you to post a picture.

If you want to get an answer, you will have to get us a decent quality picture of the diode in question with clearly visible reference components (near a connector or main IC for example).

by

Hey @oldturkey03, I'm not sure why you took my comment and turned it into an answer? I'm not really answer the OP's question.

@refectio AAPL stock symbol for Apple right?

@vipsnw what you do want to do is to post some images of the location of the part in respect to the complete board and you do want to let us know what board number this is. Use Adding images to an existing question this guide to post images with your question.
