Those of you who have not seen my previous article dealing with fixing a booster board to bypass scalar IC CM501, may please read it using the following link, to get a continuity.

This TV did a revisit in August, 2022, i.e., almost three years after satisfactory working. The complaint was like before, blue raster with no picture, but sound was ok. On opening and checking the set, I noticed that while the 12V was present the outputs of VGL, VGH, Vcom and AVDD were absent. First I thought it was due to any short within the panel, as this TV had developed a horizontal line in the middle.

According to my techie friends, it is due to a side cof issue, either a short there or loose contact, both could be solved only by a side cof bonding.

So, I disconnected all wires that go to the scalar board and checked the outputs. It still showed no output, which was a clear indication of the booster board failure.

The replacement board was not available in the market and though I tried it with a different board, which also worked on 12V input, the VGH/VGL was found getting loaded. It could either be a problem in the board or due to its insufficient ampere rating. Replacement board was not available in the market. As I had too many sets to be handled, I took the easy way out, i.e., going to my Techie Friend along with my extra load, one of which was this TV. My friend had a replacement board in his stock, which was an added advantage.

As the TV was already opened by me, he just rechecked my report and confirmed before replacing the board with a new one from his stock. As he had already wired and kept one ready adjusted to the desired output voltages for a 32” Panel, it was just a piece of cake for him. After checking, he inserted the board inside the front cover which fit there snugly. As for the line in the middle, he suggested a side cof bonding, cost of which was a bit high, which the customer did not want to spend on a TV that showed signs of old age and retirement. He opted for an exchange for new one, in case of another failure of this TV.

Here is his work finished and the result. (You can also have a view of his large working tables)

    Another professional job! But another example why I keep as far as possible from fixing those problematic modern tv screens. To me new but also very breakable technology without any real progress in making repairs really doable.

    "So I disconnected all wires.......and checked the outputs...." I don't understand this statements,will the scalar board still have output voltages having disconnected all wires from it? or what output are you talking of?.All the same, thanks for sharing.

      Yes, dear! The board will show output and we can adjust it to the required level before connecting it to scalar board! Many thanks for your comments and views!

    These boards are hard to find. You are lucky to find one. Have a blessed day
