As mentioned by me before in a few articles, these are cases which I attended to in my friends’ shop. I am sharing this with brief description and pictures for those who are interested in knowing the issues, resolutions and also to have view of the inside of the sets.

Case 1:- Make: Haier – Model: LE32M600C – Complaint: Low glow at bottom

After opening the set and checking the backlight with an LED tester and also the output of the LED driver on the board, it was confirmed that the issue was with the backlight. So, removed the panel and replaced the backlight.

After replacing the backlights, the issue was resolved, as you can see from the following picture:

Case 2:- Make: Panasonic – Model: TH-24C400DX – Complaint: No backlight

In this case, it was detected that the LED Driver was defective, as the backlight was ok when checked with the backlight tester. As it was a combo board, the best solution was to provide an LED inverter board. The 12V supply and ground was tapped from the combo board.

The power on was taken from pin 10 of the inverter IC. This universal LED Inverter board had multiple connections in the output and the appropriate output suitable was selected. Just see the connections:

After checking all work done, when the set was switched on, it worked perfectly well:

Case 3: Make: Videocon – Model : LWDTWKC40FH-ZMA – Complaint: No backlight

After doing the preliminary checks of backlight with the LED checker, the focus was turned on to the inverter board. Indeed a completely dry soldered transformer was found.

After cleaning the area very well, fresh solder was applied and when the TV was tested, it worked very well:

Case 4:- Make: Videocon – Model : V3218LEDTV – Complaint : Blinking backlight

This Videocon TV belonged to my colleague in the Hospital, and was the one in which the panel was changed. Subsequently, it developed a problem with the backlight and the Mosfet was changed by my friend, as the panel change work was done in his shop.

Again it came to his shop, as per my directions and when I opened the set; I noticed that the LED driver itself was having a problem. It was switching on and off. Instead of wasting time on troubleshooting the board (as per his shop policy), an LED driver board was fixed on top of the heat zinc using the screw of the Mosfet as fastener.

The 12V supply, ground and power on was taken from the board.

The TV was found working very well after doing this bypass surgery!

    The last mentioned repair with the led driver bypass was the most interesting fix. Sadly you didn't mention the exact type of led driver board that was used. Which would have made it even more interesting in case one would need such a led driver board too.

      That was a board given to me by my friend. Anyhow, these boards are commonly available in this part of the country. Many thanks for your comments!

    Hi reminds me of 6.3 volt booster xfmr for old crt sets. They called it. Bomb and would boost the 6.3 bolts on crt filament to about 7 volts when crt was bad.would hang off crt socket! Some were so big it would pull plastic cap off crt. Those were the good old days when cust didn't want to pay for new crt..21ap22 25xp22 etc. Thanks for great articles. Your the best. Mike USA..
