Question about Televison & Video
If you are talking about the flat ribbon connections that go from the Tcon board to the LCD panel, the you just have to lift up the little tab on the connector that is on the Tcon board. It should flip up like a little hinge and once that is unlocked then the flat ribbon cable will pull straight out.
To replace the flat ribbon cable just slide it straight into the connector ensuring the little flip up tabs are up first. Once the ribbons are fully inserted into the connector then flip the little tab back down which locks the ribbon into position.
Good luck and post back if this helps or if you need more assistance.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.
Here was the problem.
My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of
course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies
Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed
in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The
capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all
sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.
Here are some options for you.
1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it
Remember, TVs CONTAIN
HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.
2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord
plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps
replace the entire board. The entire
board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now.
They can be found online. I would
definitely shop around though.
3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.
Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself
it will save you hundreds.
This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.
I have a Tip/How TO tutorial
on this site that may also help. It
gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is
your board you are in luck. Here is the
the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help
guide people though the process as well.
Let me know if I can do anything to help.
Hope this helps and if it does please rate it
accordingly. Good luck.
