It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I would verify the voltages on the power supply board first because an improper voltage to a circuit board may make that board look bad.

Your going to need new LED backlight strips to fix it, on a larger set its not an easy job but if a lot of pictures are taken when taking it apart its something you can do, to have it professionally fixed will run between $250 and $350

Hi Markus Alison, with only one LED that burns, it is enough so that the back lighting does not turn on
To make a correct repair, I advise you to replace all the LED strips, to prevent the failure from repeating in a short time

Hola Markus Alison, con solo un LED que se queme, es suficiente para que la iluminacion trasera no encienda
para hacer una correcta reparacion, te aconsejo reemplazar la totalidad de las tiras de LEDs, para evitar que la falla se repita en poco tiempo

Hi Chuck Keplinger, so you say, you may have some LEDs in the backlight or the source that feeds them
If they are the LEDs, replace them completely, to prevent the failure from repeating in a short time

Hola Chuck Keplinger, por lo que comentas, puedes tener mal algunos LEDs de la iluminacion trasera o la fuente que los alimenta
Si son los LEDs, reemplazarlos por completo, para evitar que la falla se repita en poco tiempo

Failing power supply

Vizio Televison... | Answered 3 days ago | 26 views


Hi CHARLES J KIMBALL, so you would have a problem with the power supply
Check if it has a fuse, if it has one, replace it with only one of equal value, if it is cut, this will tell you that the source plate is wrong
Try and comment
Regards Franco Dosil

Saludos Franco Dosil
