Question about Samsung LN-S4692D 46 in. LCD HDTV
Can you tell me where the t-con board is located in my tv? Is it easily accessible? When I replace my board is it an easy fix? Pop the old one out and the new one in? Is there any things I should be careful of?
I didn't mean to sound like a know-it-all Christine I've seen many on this board that have tackled jobs just as difficult and I had no idea you were a woman - gender has no bearing... There are women in this field just as qualified as I am and some that are more so. But I have been lashed at for not giving enough fair warning that the job is a serious one. Twenty three years as a tech I wouldn't be here if I wasn't trying to help some people from paying large repair bills...
That said, I wish you all the luck! Hope you get it repaired and find my experience useful and will drop me a kind note when you get it done....

The t-con is a small control board at the top of the panel above the smps under the shield and only has four screws holding it to the frame. Is it an easy fix??? It is no more complicated than landing a 747 with some minimum verbal instruction from the tower as you decend... Most of the boards in these lcds and plasma units are HIGHLY static sensitive and while it's not a difficult repair, changing that particular board, it's getting to it that will be some cause for concern.
What I'm trying to say and not be rude is that you might just be better off letting a qualified shop do this one and warranty the work. You can cut some of the expenses by taking the unit to them and if you want to research a bit try the NESDA site locator to find a reputable shop in your area. Electronic repair like any other skilled endeavor REQUIRES some basic knowledge and tools. I don't really have a measuring stick for how much but I can example this way - - I've been a technician for more than 23 years. I went to school six years for the basic theory and application including my ojt time. These many years later and I'm still spending approximately $6,000.00 a year to keep up-to-date on how to repair all the latest in technology. For me, on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the most difficult and 1 being a breeze this job would be a 4 because there are so many layers of boards and shields to remove and then possibly resetting some of the parameters in the service menu when done. That said, I could make a mistake and cost myself another part or board.
Hope this helps!

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.
Here was the problem.
My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of
course) and found four bulged capacitors.
Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years
instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail
prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all
sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.
Here are some options for you.
1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$???????
2. Open your TV and find PSB. Check
for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged
or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $100
3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.
Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself
it will save you hundreds.
I have a tip/tutorial
on this site that may also help. It
gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It's called: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts
off on its own problem. I'm
working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as
well, so if you would like to view them check it again soon. Let me know if I can do anything
Hope this helps and Good luck.
