Re: repairing a broken green components board

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 :)

I have a curtis lcd1922a flat screen tv and all it does is green light flashes. No picture no nothing. Can you help.

the green light flashing is showing a fault code.
Due to the dangers of these TV's, I would advise you take the unit to a professional.
These TV's can no longer be repaired to component level and entire circuit boards may need to be replaced..
Dont risk a severe electric shock..have it looked at by a professional.

    The problem is in video board, Check the video section of your TV and replace the part if there is a component level repair available, If component level repair is not available then you have to replace video board.

Hi! My television was sparking from the back and I checked to see what the problem was. It appears to be a burned out fuse on the tan colored board. Can just this fuse be replaced or do I need a whole new...

As long as there doesn't appear to be any other damaged components on the board, I'd say go ahead and replace it. If it blows again, you know you have a more serious problem.

Tv won;t turn on little green light flashes on power button

Any malfunction associated with a flashing light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

T.v.shuts off.

This television is experiencing a component breakdown. This is probably from a overheating problem. The break down component is probably a capacitor. The component has lot its ability to control it operations.When it fails the television goes into the protection mode. This allows the component to cool down and to heal itself temporarily. This will not last and you will need to have the television test for faulty components.The repair of this should not be too expensive.You should call a service center and ask for a estimate of the repair cost before taking it in to be repaired. You may be able to do the repair if you have some experience working with electronic test equipment and tools. you will need a large work space, screw drivers, soldering iron and some test equipment.A digital multimeter will be needed to test some components, if a solid state component has become faulty. Usually a diode or transistor.The repair will require good soldering must visually inspect the circuit boards and replace faulty components as found. Remember these are high temperature components and need to be replaced with the same high temperature ratings. You may want to try cooling the television with a constant cool air flow to save it from further damaged. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

TV switch light flickers 11 times but no function

Hopefully it is only a board component that needs replacing and your dry joints that need re-doing. I would advise that you take it to a television repair shop as this type of repair can be very complex (replacing resistors and capacitors just to name a few).

How old is your set and how many hours do you put on it every month? These are questions that you'll have to weigh to decide whether to keep or replace the unit...accordianman

Mom (fixer of broken things)

Hi Ann,
So far, for what you have mentioned doing it is very proffesional, as in our shop we use a hair dryer to warm boards/components also. The other item you are missing is a can of freeze spray ( component cooler ), which is a substance, when sprayed on the board/component does just the opposite of your hair dryer, it cools the circuit. When we are looking for a thermal problem, as you are having, we heat one board at a time. When we have heated the right board and the problem corrects, we know we have isolated the bad board. Now we have to isolate the bad part and thats where the cooling Freeze Spray come in effect. You can spray a small area of the board and watch the effects of the picture to see if the problem reacures. If it does, then you can heat up that board again and ellimante the problem and again using your freeze spray, spray only a few components at a time, thus finding the bad part. It takes a few times sometime to isolate the problem, but when you do, the satisafaction of being able to repair you own set is worth the work ( thus being the " Mom, fixer of broken things". As a precaution, the freeze spray can freeze anything it come in contact with like ( small fingers, eyeballs, irrate husbands ears and childrens parts, so be extra careful when you use it) and always keep away from small children and irrate husbands. I hope this has helped and good luck
