Screws for Dvd


Recommended Posts

The important thing is the thread pitch and diameter and that I do no know.

By luck I have my one Thomson drive out at the moment and I've looked at those screws and indeed they do appear to be an obscure type.

This is what I can say for sure: they have a Torx 10 rounded head of some sort. I do not have a screw pitch gauge but using a steel rule the screw thread length appears to be 3/16 on an inch, approximately 5mm.

They are not M3 (metric) and they are also not 6-32 (UNC) the two commonest screw thread types used in PCs and similar equipment. I know because I've tested the screw holes with both types and the diameter is to big.

Also I'm fairly sure they're not the other common (UNC) type: 4-40 either. The diameter could be correct but I have MB standoffs which I think are 4-40 and they do look to have a similar thread diameter. However the thread pitch is definitely not the same. They do not fit and looking at the pitch under a x8 lupe the 4-40 thread is much finer. The Thomson screws are clearly coarser pitch.

They may be either M2.5 or M2 course pitch or some UNC equivalent but that is pure speculation.

Sorry I can not be more help.

      After months of focusing primarily on the Nintendo Wii, the Electron Shepherd team has just released a new product that we are thrilled to share: the Xbox2HDMI module!
      This tiny, power-packed module takes in the Component video and digital audio output from the Original Xbox and outputs an HDMI signal with embedded Dolby Digital Surround Sound (if that audio setting is enabled in your Xbox’s settings).  This module utilizes a fully custom PCB with a higher quality, next generation IC compared to what is typically used on the widely available Wii2HDMI and VGA2HDMI modules that are readily available online. If you are not happy with those modules, then you will absolutely be happy with these.
      This module efficiently supports the 480i, 720p, and 1080i resolutions that are default to the original Xbox.
      These units can be bought with ease on our store located here: https://electron-shepherd.com/xbox2hdmi/
      Please let use know if you have any questions about this or any other product we currently offer!

      My power supply died recently and I'm looking to take readings to test different areas to rebuild it. I was curious if anybody had diagrams with ratings for the single row connector revision of the power supply? If not could I get ratings for the components that blew in the picture attached to this post?
