About Programmer and EEprom ICs
Will any programmer work with LCD EEproms? Also where do you find the program for different manufacturers; is it worth the investment; I do see a lot of EEprom failures on Samsung; vizio; etc
Mostly all will work but you need to check the spec of the programmer to see if they can program the part number use in lcd or not. Usually they can support the 24cxx, 93cxx and 25lxxxx EEprom and Flash Rom ICs part number. Usually manufacturers does not provide the programs. You need to get the original programs from a working set or from repair friends and even from forum members (if they are helpful).
In certain LCDs, making the original EEprom IC programs to become blank and when you turn on the set, the MCU will copied out the programs into the EEprom. Thus in this case it is not necessary to program the IC.
