Television and Video

Would a onetime snap and pop high voltage arc in a ten year old projection TV be more likely caused by dust and humidity or the aging of components?

This is likely to be caused by the ageing of components, specifically the plastics used for insulation. Dust and humidity will sometimes contribute to it, but not with new components. Some suggest that it is possible to seal the components with black silicon to prevent a repeat. However, the components that are affected carry up to 30000 volts. Not only do they operate at that voltage but they can retain that voltage for days or weeks after the television was last used. Don't under any circumstances try to repair a television unless you are properly trained and qualified to do so.

If the temperature is changed in a series circuit, the components will get hotter. This increased temperatures in the components then serves to increase the voltage of the circuit.

Regulatory components in short to say they are the components which regulate the input voltage and current applied to the electrical and electronic devices as well as machines also........... In shortly it will stablise the voltage and current and this components are used in stablisers........ It also prevents machines and devices from damage..............

ACTIVE COMPONENTS The components which produce the energy in the form of current or voltage are called as active components. Example:transistors etc,. PASSIVE COMPONENTS The components which stores the energy in the form of current or voltage are called as passive components. example:inductors,resistors,capacitors etc,.

Picture bowing and bending on a projection TV is usually caused by an out-of-spec power supply voltage that is not providing sufficient voltage for proper screen deflection. Seek qualified service for this unit.

The voltage divider circuit is a network of two or more components in series, often resistors, between a potential difference. The voltage between the components will be somewhere between the potential difference across the whole network and so divides the total voltage into one or more intermediate voltages.

Voltage can also be called "potential" and is measured across components or sections of a circuit.Answer'Voltage' is another word for 'potential difference', not'potential'!

passive components can store the energy in the form of current or voltage , which is useful in electronics circuits.

Most components are designed and built to work at very low voltage. ESD can be of a magnitude of 1000 times greater. So if this voltage can find its way into a circuit it can permanently damage the circuit or worst yet weaken it for a premature failure

User Avatar

When a current flow on a conductor , or load or resistor, some voltage will drop across that load or resistor.AnswerA voltage drop is the potential difference appearing across individual components in a circuit, necessary to drive current through those components. The sum of the individual voltage drops around a series circuit will equal the supply voltage applied to that circuit.

A: A RESISTOR is a passive component it cannot control voltage these components and/or current it can however limit

User Avatar

Basically current sources are made from Voltage sources by adding some extra components to voltage souce.

User Avatar

In a series circuit the total voltage is the sum of the voltage drops across all the component in series. When the voltage drops across each the individual components are added up, they will equal the supply (or applied) voltage.

Voltage regulators are intended to keep a certain voltage level, which is important for most electronics to run properly. Without a voltage regulator, if an electronic, such as a computer, receives too much voltage then it can fry the components.Controls output of alternator so battery does not over or undercharge Should control voltage range from (when engine running) 13.8-14.2 volts Without voltage regulator: Voltage could go to 18-24 volts causing electrical components to burn out

Water molecules allows some electricity to constantly discharge. Only little humidity and the static electricity can grow to a quite high voltage. A lot of humidity will counteract this. As voltage increases, more will be dissipated by the moisture.

you cannot increase the voltage by replacing a capacitor. A capacitor is a passive components it has no gain.

A transformer's excitation current can be resolved into two components. The first is in phase with the primary voltage, and is responsible for the losses. The second lags the supply voltage by 90 degrees, and is responsible for magnetising the core.

Voltage will be constant. Resistance is dependent on the components in the circuit. Source: Electronics Technician for the US Govt
