The IC (chip) inside the lamp seems to die slowly resulting in flickering/flashing lamp operation when using the radio. Also the buttons may become unresponsive.

The problem occurs specifically when the device is cold and/or humid. Heating up the IC makes it work again.

  1. On the main PCB with the power-jack, replace the MTX2410 switchmode regulator IC (SO-8 Package).
    • On the main PCB with the power-jack, replace the MTX2410 switchmode regulator IC (SO-8 Package).

    • There is a pin-compatible device from Quorvo (ACT4060ASH-T) which has a different internal voltage reference but otherwise works fine. Only a resistor must be changed for this to work.

    • Feedback Voltage for MXT2410 is 1.222V, for ACT4060 is 1.293V, so voltage divider on Pin5 must be changed accordingly.

    • One can best adjust R4+R3 (series). Remove R4, measure R3 and R4, and increase. It should measure about 10.67kOhm (R3 plus R4), and it can be slightly increased to 11.51kOhm. So basically add 1kOhm to R3+R4.

Hi Thomas,

I have the same problem, but i do not understand what you are doing with the R3 and R4. If i remove R4, with what should i replace it?

Or how should i measure it?

Thanks in advance,

Arnoud

Hallo Thomas,

ich finde das ist eine tolle Anleitung zur Reparatur des Lichtweckers. Ich hatte mich auch auf den Austausch des MXT2410 konzentriet. Es kam dann aber doch anders. Nach ca. 2-3 Wochen warten auf den ACT4060 war dieser schnell eingebaut. Das Ergebnis war enttäuschend. Keine Änderung, die 5V waren nicht messbar. Bei der weiteren Fehlersuche stellte ich fest, dass der ACT4060 und die zugehörige Drossel schnell warm wurden. Jetzt ging es an die Suche nach einem Kurzschlußkandidaten. Er war dann schnell gefunden: D3 (SK24). Eine andere Schottkydiode eingebaut (diesmal aus der Bastelkiste) und es wurde wieder Licht und Musik.

Freundliche Grüße,

Roland

Thanks for the feedback. I wasn´t 100% sure the ACT4060 can work correctly. Your feedback has confirmed it will work.

Did you make a modification to the resistors ? Did you measure the voltage ?

I was able to use this guide to bring a Philips Wake-Up HF3520 back from the dead. Was able to source a MXT2410SX IC via ebay (5 for $10.23), so just swapped the IC and did not touch the resistors. Thank you OP for identifying the failing component.
