Question about Sceptre X37sv-Naga 37 in. LCD Television
I'm mostly a computer guy myself, and I've never messed with soldering or anything that advanced, just the easy installations and stuff. Anyway, my LCD TV died a while back and just last week I found a fix:
Solution #1 here: (not my question, but the solution fit my scenario)
It worked fine for a few days and now it stopped working. I tried using a thicker piece of plastic like it says but that didn't work either.
I decided to examine the board a little closer (keep in mind my little experience here) I had already noticed the scorch marks around about 3 or 4 pins on the bottom of the board (which led me to the above solution). I looked closer at those pins and they didn't look quite right, as if they were possibly no longer getting contact with whatever they need to. On a couple of the pins, if I hold the board up to the light, I can see through the board through small holes next to the pins (which didn't look normal to me) I also noticed the pins didn't all have the same amount of metallic substance (solder?) around them, which worried me as well.
When I power the board, I see a quick flash of electricity on one of these pins, and then the rest of the TV doesn't get power. (No standby power LED like usual)
My question is whether or not this is fixable or if the board is completely dead and in need of a replacement. I'm seriously hoping not, as the replacement would probably be $150+ and I currently have no money or job.
Here are some pics of the group of pins I'm talking about. Not the best pics, but perhaps they can give you some ideas:
I resoldered those pins on my, but you need to clean them real well first, this is common problem for this model. Any good repair shop should be able to resolder the board for you.

Testimonial: "Would this be expensive? I might know a friend or two that might know how but they might not be available to do it right away."
Sounds like a dry joint, or adjoining pins are being shorted, will try and have a look at your pics
