Here is a question that we see often.

Question:
I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ?
So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part your put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour.

SOURCE: Purple tint on screen

Color splases can show up when the sets are move from one location to another or when they have been dropped while moving it,another reason is when a speaker is placed to close to the tv.The tv has an internal demagnetizer witch gets activated when you turn the tv on,I suggest to unplug the unit for about 15 minutes and then plug the unit and turn it on,If the unit was dropped this problem might not be repairable.I hope the information helps .

Call sony at this number and tell them what your tv is doing? If it is like mine they will replace the optical block. It seems that Sony will cover parts and labor if you do it before the end of the year. If the numbers don't work just go to sony's website and check for warranty or support information

SOURCE: DS Lite repair worked, but only until I put it back together

You may have some pressure somewhere that it shouldn't be. The electrical tape takes up space, and could be taking space that is not there when the console is assembled. Or you keep knocking a connection loose when you put it together.

Try it while it's on. If the console crashes or dies at any point, whatever step you were in the middle of is probably causing that problem. Just make sure not to get anything in it while you were, and don't touch any electrical parts, in case you accidentally short something.

PLEASE HELP ME!!! OK I bought a LG 55LB5900UV knowing the screen would flicker on for a second and stay black for 5 seconds then flick the screen on for 1 second and repeats as long as the TV is powered...


They must have a good connection, not just taped together.
I doubt the LEDs are at fault, it is usually the power supply for the LEDs that fails.

LG Tv backlights won't come on. Replaced bad LED strips and did not fix. Should I move to replace power supply/LED driver?


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
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.

My LG tv model number 42LN5400-UA no picture


It is a common problem for the LG 42/47 LN series LED TV, the problem is defective LED back lights strip (strips).

You have to open the display panel to find the bad one & replace it. The part number usually is printed on the strips, read 6916L-11XXA, you may purchase it from EBay.
