Question about Samsung LNR238W 23 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Television mother board

I had a problem with a 23 inch flatscreen samsung tv's hdmi port for a while. Eventually it stopped working altogether, and when I removed the back, I realized that the hdmi port was no longer attached to the motherboard. It appears that it was only ever attached with three solder points, and the contacts on the port to the motherboard are bent.

Now my question is twofold; is it possible to purchase ONLY the motherboard, or ONLY this hdmi port for my lcd? And if I can purchase the port, is it safe to mechanically drill it into the motherboard? There are holes are either side of the port, but nothing on the motherboard.

How do i give my tv an hdmi channel? Do i have to buy a hdmi cable? and if I do which cable? I want to use an xbox one but It won't show due to me not having an Hdmi channel so I was wondering howican


HDMI is a data protocol and includes the associated ports and cables it is not a channel. If Your TV Does not have an HDMI port you can use a converter to change it To a connection your TV Does support. Be aware a cable with the appropriate ends is not the same as a converter...a converter changes the language to something the tv can understand.

46" Samsung LNT4661FX /XAA LCD TV volume problem.


If sound on one HDMI and not the others---all three should go to the same board--either something is not connected inside or the replacement board is the issue---Samsung is known for making boards with the same part number on them that from week to week have different features or do not have certain features.

Try to trace where the working input goes and if to same board as other two you know what to suspect.

Bad hdmi port


If you have a bad HDMI port you have to abandon it because it is part of the motherboard and in most TV's cannot be replaced on site by a technician. The mother board has to be shipped back to the factory or a very good service center for HDMI replacement. Ask for a quote before you decide to get it fixed.

Samsung 40" flat screen looses sound


this problem started on my LN-S4051D a couple of years ago. eventually the sound stopped working altogether. I then started using my surround sound speakers for the TV via optical out but soon that stopped working as well. I recently took the TV to a repair shop who said that the main board is bad and needs to be replaced. Labor plus parts was going to cost me $400. I said no thanks and paid for the estimate. Good luck.

I have sharp 37 inch LC-37D44U MY PS3 is not working with it it green lights keep blinking power light and OPC. BUT THE HDMi ports work beacause i checked it with other devices. so i dont know why its not...


Does this happen when you input certain signals to the HDMI2_bing.gif ports? Or all signals (e.g. 1080i, 720p, 1080p, etc.)? And which ports are affected - side HDMI, rear component, etc.?

I had this issue and Sharp sent out a local repair tech to install a new main circuit board, then two weeks later, a new side board (where the side inputs connect into the system)... their first visit allowed my TV to accept signals in the rear HDMI ports (all signals worked well), but then I couldn't get a signal processed via the side HDMI port. At first, just 1080p would not display (caused the OPC/power green light blinking), and after a few days, any signal hitting that port would cause the error lights to come on. But as I said, eventually, a new side board resolved that issue.
