I've drawn up a circuit diagram for the SMPS of this receiver. More for my own curiosity and not exactly of professional quality, however it shows all components including positioner relays etc.

It might come in handy for circuit tracing in the (likely) possibility of a fault occuring in the power supply.

Here's a list of the main semi's -

TR1- BT137 Triac

IC1- 1H0565 Power Switch

IC5- Power Switch (for motor drive)

BD- PBS606G Bridge Rectifier

IC2,6,8- L9941 Optocouplers

IC3,4,7- KA431 Prog.Shunt Regulators

D5- SB860 Schottky Diode

D13- U16C20 Power Rectifier

D16,17- P6KE6.8A Transient Voltage Suppressor

Q1- IRFZ24 Power Mosfet

Q2,Q7- 2SC945 NPN Transistor

Q3,Q4- 2SC3205 NPN Transistor

Q5- 2SA1273 PNP Transistor

Can't see a Q6 (?)

(R3 is 15kohms - often discoloured and unreadable visually due to overheating.)

Edit: Added official schematic pdf. Much better than my effort.

Hi Llew

Did you get a stiff neck drawing that superb diagram? I got one reading it!O-Ha

Well I just took a photo of the print side, making sure the light brought out the copper lands, printed it out and drew along the circuit checking it against each component. Took a few hours including checking online for component identification. Once you start these things I suppose it becomes a bit of an obsession - I won't be doing the rest of the STB though even if I could :)

Hard to find schematics for Echostar stuff. Saying that, someone's bound to find one for this :-doh!

great job, Llew

Nice to see a proper circuit diagram instead of all these confounded block IC's that tell you nothing about how a circuit works. Great work Llew.

Thanks for going to the trouble - I appreciate it, for one. My ad3000 has survived up to now, but it has lots of dodgy moments.

I have never seen any ad3000 circuit diagrams published and my suspicion is that echostar don't have the copyright. I assume that the Korean manufacturer holds that (were they called hanhan or something similar ?).

I know that echostar in Holland were able to issue the complete circuit diagrams for the LT8700 - which echostar both designed and manufactured.

Yes I have the LT8700 SMPS schematic, wish I'd had it when I had an obscure fault in the motor drive some while back. A lot more complicated than later models.

Of the AD3000, can't make any sense of the circuit coming off of D7 in the secondary supply. I think I may have Q4 wrongly 'wired'. Will check it out.

Checked the D7/Q4 configuration, it's correct as it stands. It's not feeding any voltage supply circuit, all Q4 does is turn off when in standby. PCS (S/by line) turns off Q4 via Q2, Q5 and the aforementioned supply goes high (8.5V). For what reason I don't know.

Tip: If the PCB warps slightly (heat?) you can lose the chassis earthing point (top left, looking from the front - the two blue capacitors which connect to an isolated earthing strip). You can easily see if this has happened by checking the board contact point through the side of the chassis. It happened with mine, I had to insert a small piece of metal to secure a good contact. Without this earthing, these capacitors are ineffective and may cause noise on tne mains line.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Echostar used to be affiliated with Hughes Tracker Systems, later HTS, so there is a chance a decent stab with Google will bring up the other PSUs.

Beleive me I tried CH. The only other PSU I found was for the Echostar 3000 - a different beast entirely (US model).

Llew,
Thanks for the excellent work you did on drawing the power supply for the Echostar AD3000ip. I have now been able to repair a friends' receiver without having to laboriously go through the task of mapping it out which is very time consuming as I have done this before.
Two faults were located.
1. Motor error caused by a faulty M Pulse diode D16. This is a P6KE6.8A Transient Voltage Suppressor for future reference (so is D17).
2. A fault in Q4. This was a 2SC2328A in my machine which I was able to replace with a 2SC3205. The 2SC series are getting harder to get hold of these days.

There was a small difference with your drawing. The emitter of Q4 went to CN2/14 and not direct to earth on this receiver.

Many thanks again :)

Thanks for that component1!

Of course! I thought there was something odd about that supply circuit in my drawing. It's obviously the 8V line :-doh! All becomes clear now. Should've checked more closely.

Cheers again for the extra info. Glad it was of some use - will alter diagram.

Well done M8! :D

Lots of us still running the old beast ( AD 3000 IP)

Bought mine new, added computer fan then because i thought it was too hot.
Seems it was an good idea, keeps the reciever cool including the PSU/cams.

Just an dust cleaning to do once an year O-Ha

Yes >COR<, I added just such a fan (in the middle of the board) when I first had the box. With a thermistor circuit added to vary the fan speed according to the heat generated.

Two errors in original diagram 1 have been corrected. R22 added in PCS standby line

R18 now goes between Q5 collector and Q3 base.

Thanks for the corrections m8.

To add to my older post, i also added old heatsinks with cooling paste to the memory chip and cpu, and all hot i.c.'s
Since the reciever is on much of the day here, and goes with us to France in the holliday season, it has performed well, must have travelled 10.000 miles by now :D

Cheers,

Cor

Apologies for the mistakes >COR< I was taking some voltage readings and noticed the discrepancy.

Great to hear the old box is still giving of its best. I have a small fan positioned vertically between the processor and SMPU, giving a good air flow across the board, shoving it out of the left-side vent of the box.
