Question about LG RU-60SZ30 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Ballast question yes the part numbers you gave for the lamp and ballast are what the manual list, but those numbers have been replaced with the parts i have now. i have been to a lot of sites and the old numbers aways cross to the newer ones. and lg is clueless. thier suggestion was to have a service center send someone out to look at the set and file some kind of report. what i need is a schematic for the ballast, both of them so i can determine the differance and affect a mod. my service manual from lg does not even show the ballast except on the exploded parts view.

Panasonic PT-52LCX16 - I need a ballast. Do they exist and where? lists the optical engine and ballast as available by special order: . However, Shopjimmy lists the power supply and lamp ballast with the part number of LSEP1206A1; it's out of stock there. Other sites just list this as the power supply so I'm not sure if the other sites include the ballast.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Ballast Diagnosis and Replacement in LCD Projection TVs.

When you have replaced the <a href="">lamp</a> in your LCD projection TV, and you still get lamp warnings and blinking standby lights or the light levels are extremely low, compared to the old lamp, your ballast probably needs replaced. Odds are it shorted out or developed problems when the old lamp failed.<br /><br />This is not a hard unit to replace on most sets but may require a little <a href="">knowledge</a> and familiarity with LCD units. The ballast makes the voltages for the lamp circuit. The ballast is generally located near the lamp and has two large soft rubber wires going to the lamp assembly. If you follow the wires from the back of the lamp, the box they lead to is the ballast. <br /><br />Replacement of the ballast involves removing any screws holding the cover on and the board in the <a href="">TV</a>. Disconnecting any wires from their plugs. Mark them with a sharpie prior to removal for easy assembly using a different number for each connector. <br /><br />Reassemble the unit using the new board and make sure that all covers are in place and all wires are properly connected. You may be able to <a href="">download</a> a service manual at <a href=""></a> which will help with part numbers and has instructions on the removal and replacement of the ballast as well as diagrams and pictures to help with disassembly and reassembly. Retrevo does not have all service manuals. If you want one and are willing to pay about $16 US go to <a href=""></a> . The manuals can be downloaded instantly.<br /><br />Any parts needed may be obtained at <a href=""></a> or <a href=""></a> . <a href=""></a> sometimes will have the service manual for <a href="">free download</a>. Again they do not have everyone and it depends on your model, but it certainly is worth checking prior to purchasing one.<br /><br />When the job is complete your unit should be operational. If there are more problems try my tip at <a href=""></a> to troubleshoot the additional problems.<br /><br />Good luck with your <a href="">troubleshooting</a>. If you need more help let me know.<br /><br />Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank You.<br /><br />hardrocko <br />

TV turns on but lamp never comes on. Seems to try 3 times then all 3 led's on front start flashing. I tried to replace the lamp but problem remains.

If the Lamp has been replaced then problem will be either Lamp Fan or Ballast board .
Ballast board connects to Lamp and it is what powers Lamp on.
Check out Encompass Parts Distribution type in your Model number for a List of Parts/Prices and Part Numbers.

It is best to replace the Lamp and Ballast at the same time because if you only replace one or the other, the part you did not replace might reverse damage the new part. Locate the Lamp Door on the rear of the set and remove it. You will see a Lamp Module inside with a Handle. Loosen the two screws and remove the Lamp. DO NOT TOUCH THE FRONT GLASS AT ALL!!!. If you see shattered glass inside, then you have a bad Lamp. Look on the Left side of the set and you will see a Orange sticker labeled Lamp Code. Record that code and purchase a Lamp and Ballast. There are a number of Lamps and Ballast listed for this tv so the Lamp code is important when ordering from online merchants or you have a trained Samsung tech take care of this for you. 1-800-Samsung can give information on the best shop to call locally that they trust.

Won't show picture but has sound

You can have numerous problems. I have the exact same television in my shop awaiting parts because they are extremely hard to find. The service manual is useless unless you have the diagnositc software adn operational software to properly test the television, so do not attempt to buy a manual online you will waste your money. The television is actually pretty easy to check if you have a multimeter, T10 torx screwdriver or T10 socket, and a philips screw driver. First of all remove the back cover from the television, do not worry about the screen assembly, it is flimsy but it is mounted on the inside to not go anywhere when the back cover is removed. Next remove the black voer that is mounted by 4 torx screws, the cover that has the projector part of the engine assembly sticking through, be careful not to damage the black foam rubber that is around the projector head. Once you have those two covers off, unplug the ballast power supply wire which is the white and black wire on the bottom of the ballast, the ballast is the cicuit board that is mounted in front of the big fan on the right side Also has two wire coming from the top that plug into the lamp housing. With a multi meter check to see if you have power going into the ballast (TV has to be plugged in and turned on to do this step). If you have power going in then turn the television off and unplug it and and plug the power supply wire back into the ballast. Next remove the lamp which is secured into place with the one screw on the left side. See if you have power coming out. If you have power coming out than replace your lamp. If you do not have power going inot the lamp than replace the ballast. If you do not have power going into the Ballast than replace the power supply which is part number DVL-U2830XC good luck in finding that part. If you have power going through to the ballast, and to the lamp and have replaced the lamp than replace the video board Part Number B0001, good luck finding that part. If you have replaced the Video board, ballast, lamp, and power supply and it still fails part your television out and make parts available for other people because the last thing is the engine assembly which costs 2999.00, yes that number is right Two Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine Dollars. Again, parts are very hard to come by for that model and unless your a customer like that one I have that actually wants it fixed don't bother with it.
