Question about LG Televison & Video

Open Question

I have an LG LED TV 55LB5900-UV which has its backlights flashing off and on at say a 1 hertz rate.

I'm an engineer and have measured the voltages from the PS board to the LEDs and have swapped the PS board with another and got the same results. I now have the TV full apart and see that most of the LEDs turn on, but not all of them. The LEDs that do not light are scattered amongst working ones. I do not see a series of LEDs in a line out. Is the failure mode such that the LEDs work reasonably well until too many fail and then the remaining start flashing? Or is it some other control that has failed? Regards, Richard

Most likely there is a bad connection either at the display itself or in the power supply. If you are comfortable working with this equipment and can solder, try resoldering the pins for the display itself first.

Keep us posted.

SOURCE: If a warning light indicates the CPU is not functioning, does that mean I have to get a new processor?

Yes! judging by all the cascade break downs, I would suggest replacing the motherboard, HP has a history with motherboard issues.

Hi there.I have an lg led tv model 42LB5800 with no picture just sound. Also I can see the image with the torchlight. How can I fix it? thanks

The back light driver is bad. You could have lost the voltage from the power supply board to the led driver too. If you have a volt meter measure all the voltages on the power supply. The correct voltages are printed on the board next to the connector that goes to the rest of the TV. If they are all correct then the backlight driver is bad.

Black Screen on LG LED TV. From what I can see, I have not backlight, but I have sound and I can see the picture with a flashlight...TV flashes on start up. Is the LED panel or the T-conn board ??.

LED backlight of your TV might gone. If you are a good service technician and know about electronic repair, check LED Driver voltage, if voltages are normal then you can test your LED backlight by applying external voltage to the LED backlight to reconfirm.

Samsung monitor 2232bw plus backlight fade in black backgrounds scenes

Most common failures in these LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply C242 470uF 10V, C241 & C242 1000uF 16V, C261 & C319 680uF 35V failed as indicated in the attached picture, replace them at once.

If the power supply board is working then it is back light problem, first do a flash light test. If you can see the image in the flash light test, follow the steps how to test back light voltages: and follow the steps how to repair back light LEDs: Fix Led Backlights for TV or Monitor Lg Led Tv No Backlights 32ln5300 32ln5310 32ln5700 Voltage Test Troub Lg...
