Question about LG RU-44SZ61 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I just bought an LG RU 44SZ61 from an individual. He said it needs a new ballast, is there any way to know if it is actually bad, I am sure it is; when I try to turn on the set on the front of it, since the remote won't turn it on for some reason, the orange light blinks until it turns itself off. You can hear the fans turn on in the back. But I also had no video hooked up to the rear, but I don't think that makes a difference, nothing came up on the screen at all.
Could someone please give me some insight on where to find a service manual on this particular model that might help with the ballast, or where to get a ballast? Thanks, hope something comes up for an answer.
P.S.- When I tried taking the ballast out, I got everything disconnected except the two largest cords, I think they connect to the lamp. I didn't go further into taking it apart, since I didn't exactly know how to get them out. So I put everything back together until I know exactly what to do. AND... I know it's the ballast or something besides the lamp because the guy I bought it from just replaced the lamp.
I have the service manual for the RU-44SZ63D should be similar to the 61d. I am trying to replace a ballast and bought one on ebay for $61 including shipping. Used but guaranteed. Beats $184 new. My problem is getting Screen off to replace. It is under the dust cover in front and looks like best and easiest way. Since you took yours apart, did you go in through back or front.
