I'm looking at this Power board of a non-working TV and noticed a ceramic capacitor with a bit of the ceramic blown away. I'm not entirely sure if this is the reason why the TV isn't working; though it is possible. It was soldered between the drain and the S/GND of an IC [STR-Y6456 which is a switching power supply(?)]
From the markings, it's a 390pF 2kV ceramic capacitor (I'm so glad it blew on the other side instead of the marked one).
What would make a ceramic cap blow up? While searching for this topic here, I came across , but that's not the case. I know a ceramic capacitor doesn't have polarity and with 2kV limit, so it can't be the voltage [though, that's just my guess] ... so I'm guessing the current has something to do with it? What about heat?
Any clarifications appreciated,
