    Default open can diodes again sorry fellas

    Ok, on the dvd burner diodes there is usually a tiny SMD capacitor.

    Anyone know its value or have a good enough Cap meter to test one for an approximate value.

    Default smd cap

    Im wondering if you can use a variable capacitor , to find the right value. I would start high and come down in capacitance.

    Oops, mine went to trashcan right away. Next time I promise to take the measurement before disposal

    It's extremely tiny, in the nF region. Not enough to buffer much, I suspect they used it as a termination capacitor with the stripline lead wires.

    Okay, got it out. Without LD and connector ribbon it shows 27-30pF.
