For an out-of-warranty TV, open up the back of the TV and remove the shielding. Look for any scorch marks or bulging or damaged capacitors on the boards. (Sometimes other parts will fail on this part but these can be spotted easily. Capacitors look like cylinders on a tripod.)

To diagnose a problem with the backlight inverter, if you borrow (or have a) high-end multimeter (able to measure high frequencies - 50 kHz) or an oscilloscope, hold the multimeter probes a fraction of an inch apart about an inch above the board and power up the TV. If you see a 1 or an actual value, you have a good inverter. If you see a reading near 0, the board is bad or the multimeter can't resolve the frequency.

In either case, you can buy a replacement inverter for $50-150 and just do a simple swap. Disconnect all of the wires (connections are similar to molex and ribbon cables in a computer) and remove board (a few screws usually). Connect the cables to the new inverter. (If you google backlight inverter replacement, you'll find videos and text descriptions.) Note the part number on the board, including the Rev number, and order the exact one (shopjimmy.com or lcdparts.net are good starting points). Universal inverters do exist but can result in reversed controls (up to lower the brightness). Replacing individual parts on the board is cheaper but more prone to not tracking down all of the bad parts.

If the inverter is good, then it's probably backlights themselves (several in most TVs). These are sandwiched on the perimeter of the TV (usually under some tape that holds the lamp, reflector and other parts together. You need to order by length and width and get ones for your TV size. Remove the tape, and separate the reflector (make a note of how things are put together) then you have to Dremel (or use another rotary tool) to remove the plastic to get the backlight out. (They are often molded into the frame.) Then put in the new backlight and reassemble everything. (http://www.lcdparts.net/howto/default.aspx) but for an overview: http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/BacklightFix/overview.aspx

With a good spare backlight, you can test an inverter for condition (plug together and turn on the tv while the box is open). Similarly a good inverter can test the backlight. With a bad backlight, you'll usually see a very dim image if you look at the TV from an inch from the screen. Block the room light from overwhelming this image (sometimes a carefully positioned flashlight will help you see something). If the inverter or video board is bad, you will see nothing.

If the video board is bad, the menus and any splash screen would probably be visible when you turn on the TV or press the menu button.

I hope this helps.

When i turn on my television it acts like it will turn on then the screen stays black. but the power button shows that is on. can anyone tell me what is wrong?


COULD BE A POWER SUPPLY RELATED PROBLEM. FLAT PANEL LCD TVS HAVE POWER SUPPLY FAILURES MOST COMMONLY. COULD BE VENTED CAPACITORS ON THE POWER BOARD OR EVEN CRACKED SOLDER CONNECTIONS.

HD TVs do have different cables, I went to Time Warner and swapped my regular box for an HD box, the cable ends are blue red and white, I believe. Also in order for my box to work on the screen I have to switch to "Component" instead of "TV". Hope I helped!

Haier Plasma TV problem


My experience with a Haier Plasma 42EP24S is that they have weak software chip that goes bad and can cause a number of symptoms from picture with no sound, will not recognize video inputs, or my current problem tv turns on and off irratically.  This is the second time i have replace this chip, which is the socketed chip on the vga/component/dvi input circuit card.  Last time i had this problem i ended up fixing it myself because sears took over 3 weeks and still could not figure out the problem.  I am working on obtaining this chip, probally get about a dozen so if anyone thinks this may fix there problem as well i my have some for sale.  michael@malobicky.com of Malobicky Digital Systems.
