I'd bet money we ae talking a capacitor on your power board...
but hey (watch videos... learn... and SAVE $100s).
You must verify your own circuit board numbers.
I'm a three time winner of the cheesy Samsung Capacitor
(NOT REAL... But should be).
Hello Ginger Wills,
Sorry about your troubles. What sound reception
means is your set is working (in large part)... 'cept for the picture part.
Before I make ANY recommendations... I can say I have had two careers in (industrial-grade) electronics... If only to get your close attention to two VERY stern recommendations (more like commandments):
Always wear (ESD) anti-static wrist strap ($6, see below) when handling "electronics" you value (a small static spark can burn right through one of those BIG UGLY
Diodes in your vehicles alternator).
I DO NOT recommend live power work
... the boards are simply to cheap... it s an iterative process... So you guess wrong: put away that "good spare
" (so labeled) and order other board...
For a BIG failure like yours...
FIRST LIKELY CANDIDATE = POWER BOARD.
If you MUST (I generally recommend against it) take live voltage readings... DO SO with one hand in your pocket... A two handed EMBRACE of even a SMALL amount of electricity... can be catastrophic (professionals power off and/or use insulated gear...
shoes, gloves (no rings, no watches))...
and only using a QUALITY volt-ohm-meter (VOM, Like a FLUKE, 101 BASIC, again... see below).
You DO NOT want to earn the nick-name "SPARKY"... trust me!
Now all you need to know... is to track where every ***** comes from (easily done with a drawing & awl on a piece of cardboard... Take picture BEFORE you remove ANYTHING...
Force NOTHING (SOME CABLES have clever little releases)...
Put EVERY WIRE EXACTLY WHERE YOU FOUND IT... You will be proud. Everybody has to start someplace... This might just be your place...
Sears DOES guarantee (so to speak) their SAMSONITE Gorilla won't break much... but so did Circuit City
before they evaporated (I'm just saying (sorry... It's genetic: I can't help myself)).
Sears has boards for sale, shopjimmy.com has them... of course eBay & Amazon...
Take a look at TAMPATEC ... Smart young-fellow... breaks less than he fixes... (BEST: he admits when he SPARK'd a circuit board (kudos).
Modern TVs are pretty simple... but I only guarantee
: If you go in carelessly you will turn a slight mal-function into a MAJOR CATASTROPHIE
... Have no doubt!
Oh by the way... When everything goes sideways... If you try "SAMSUNG PARTS
"... USA (and it will...Samsung will IMMEDIATELY disavow any RELATIONSHIP to them...
JUSTIFIABLY SO... They are unscrupulous clowns... I did WAY BETTER on eBay... I swear!!
(and VERY willing to testify... Net ZERO (Time donated)).
Go there ("SAMSUNG PARTS
") at your own risk...!!
