Repairing a broken green components board

Hi I have a dec television for which i had to replace the reciever. the problem is when i was taking the reciever out I broke the green board the all the components are soldered on to. could you please explain to me how i can repair this as the repairer has advised me that eventhough the tv is only 2 years old, they dont make them any more, thus they dont have the same components left. I dont have much money to get it repaired so i was hoping you could give me a detailed explanation on how to repair the green board thanking you in advance foxtroi

First thing to do is let us have all the information that is printed on the broken board. we will first see if we can find one for you - most of these can be found for years after they have stopped making the set, and often another company will buy the license to carry on making them under a different name. Usually the boards bought seperately are relatively cheap. If we have no luck finding a replacement, then the repair may be possible depending on what the damaged part is - if you can remove the damaged board, take a couple of close up photographs of each side complete and really close up of the damaged area, post them back here and we can hopefully advise you if it can be done and how to do it. Almost certainly you will need a reasonable electronic soldering iron and possibly a solder removing suction plunger - these tools are cheap enough if you only need to use them a couple of times. The skill level required will depend on the exact nature of the damage, but hopefully we can talk you through the job. First give us the details of the broken board and take a few photos - then we can see what we can do. waiting for your reply :)

Green light comes on for 3 or 4 secs, then yiu hear power off and it returns to standby

Power regulator board inside it has damaged. In most cases, this board is irreparable due to unavailablity of components. Replace the board as card basis. Especially plasma TV boards are very complicated in circuit nature, and cannot be repaire without getting proper components. No substitutions will go on with these power supplies. So replace the power supply board with same type and number. You can get it from Authorised Service Center for Sharp at your town. OK.

I have a HCM4216W rear projection tv. It was

The convergence IC have gone bad, bad solder connections to IC or probably both. The board as a whole can be purchased as complete (look to the web to find where to get) and is fairly easy to replace. Unless you have extensive experience with component level repair I would suggest you take the board to a TV shop to repair. This option maybe slightly less then replacing board. Check with your local TV repair shop to see which option is the best in your area.

Convergence way off!

Yup, you lost convergence. The only fix is to repair/replace the convergence IC. Some techs will just replace the whole video board.

Akai Plasma PDP4273M with white block and green tint

I have the same problem with mine. I had a repair guy come by and take it apart. He said its either the video board ( about 500.00 ) or the buffer chips which on these tvs are connected to the screen which is not worth the money to fix.

No raster, no sound on 53UWX10B

double check the wire connections, as the filaments not being lit makes me thing a wire isnt connected properly, or one may have been loosend while doing the convergence repairs.
