Question about Toymax Magnavox 37MF231D 37 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Per magnavox 37mf231d I switched tcon board, and put an older main board that I had laying around, now the tv tries to turn on, there is a background light for about 5 seconds and then it shuts off.

Do you think it is still the main board?

Hello, I think it either had a bad back light board or one of the florescent tubes in the display has gone bad. As these sets get older, I see more of the florescent tubes going bad. I think there are 9 in that set, and all it takes is one of them to go out to cause the set to shut down. You may also look for a bad connection on the transformers on the back light board.....thanks, let me know

My Hitachi TV model no 50HK25T74U a 3 inch vertical line

It's one of 3 things, start by removing the LVDS cable (goes from main board to tcon board) and flat ribbon cables going from tcon board to panel, clean with rubbing alcohol and q tips, replace. The tcon board is the smaller board in the middle bottom of the set, it may have a metal shield over it. If that doesn't help try replacing the tcon board, if that doesn't help your panel is defective and the set isn't worth fixing.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Disconnect the LVDS Cable that runs from the small signal board to the display panel and apply power,if the screen comes on,the Small signal board (aka Scaler Bd ) is the faulty board. other than that,all that's really left that has gone bad for me is the logic board.
