need help identifying this part
« on: December 03, 2016, 11:30:58 pm »
Hi all,

2 weeks ago I wrote about a broken Power Designs 2005A power supply that has a burnt component.  Furthermore the 2005A manual found online (written in 1969) doesn't match my power supply (made in 1974).  I clean the burnt component with IPA and took a close look and was able to find some markings on it.  Unfortunately, it wasn't going to be that easy!

The marking read "TI 731 5" and the packaging is TO-92 (see pic).  I did a lot of google search and was unable to find the datasheet for this part. 

Any guess as to what is this part?

Should I simply try my luck and just whack in a NPN and then a PNP and see what happens?  Any other tips?

Hello,
The numbers 7315 may well be a date code (1973, week 15) don't know about the T1 bit though.
What part of the psu is the device in? I presume it's in the regulator circuit.

I suggest that you take voltage readings at the pins and look at the pcb track to maybe identify the type of device (it looks like a general purpose transistor). You may then get an idea of where the base, collector and emitter are.

Hope this is of some help,
Regards,
Chris.

Hi Christopher,

Yeah, you are right, TI 7315 is a date code!  I'll try your idea.

You have a 2005A with a revised board layout, but the actual circuit probably hasn't changed (much?). ID what this component connects to and then use the schematic to decipher which part it is.
