There should be printing on the voltage reg. I say should because I once had a (overpriced) video processor that the manufacturer had sanded all the ICs to remove the numbers. I guess they didn't want anyone copying their proprietary design.

But, in your case, the reg might not be dead. In repairing a number of LCD TVs, I have found that part of the power supply is always hot, to power the IR remote circuitry, while another part is not hot until you switch the unit on. Do you hear a click or any indication that the unit is powering on?

I haven't followed all of what you have checked, but sometimes capacitors fail and change values, causing power supply issues. Any of them bulging?

Any fuses bad? Should be marked F1, F2, etc. on board. But Voltage regs do go bad, so that very well may be the problem. I would start by trying to get voltage readings. And I understand your hesitation about short circuiting with the probe. I've done that before, and it sucks.

Anyway, I guess the final question for the Forum members comes down to------ does anyone have a service/shop manual for any of these units? The 2160a, 513, 515, 537, 557--- they no doubt all have the very same power supply configuration so a manual for one would be just as good as for any of the other units in this series.

If anyone does, look in there and see if it gives any clues to the identity for:
Q2101 &
Have you seen this section of my help file on Hardware Replacement & Upgrade?.
