Cure0%olutions+ The inverter !C* is the power suppl for the Cold Cathode 7luorescent

fiIture. <n the case of an LCD TV, (3 volts from the power suppl is applied to a switch
mode power suppl 6%/!%8. The %/!% outputs N$999 Volts to energiBe the bulbs then
the voltage drops to N 599 volts for run operation. The %/!% switching freCuenc is
around ?9 :HB. The first step for verifing inverter board operation is to confirm the (3

oscillating. %impl holding the oscilloscope probe in the area of the switching
transformer will show screen activit if the switching action is ta.ing place. /easuring

%mptom+ <ntermittent LCD Video Troubleshooting
Cure0%olutions+ Troubleshooting intermittent video problems can be time consuming,
but these tips ma help narrow down the cause of an intermittent video problem.
The ver first thing to do is to ma.e sure the customer does not have -%D. The can
verif this b Just pressing /enu or Volume on their TV remote control. <f the do have
-%D, then the problem is most li.el in the source and not the TV.
The neIt step when encountering an intermittent video problem is to find out if the
bac.lights are on when the set loses video. Fou can probabl obtain this information
from the customer before ou schedule the call. "s. if the noticed if the screen is
completel blac. or if it is lit up slightl when the video goes out. The ma be able to
notice it better if the stand at an angle to the TV and turn it on or off and see if there is
an change in brightness.
<f the bac.lights are out, ou need to .now if the set ever has video when the turn it on,
or does it go out after the have had the set on for a period of time. <f the set
occasionall will not have bac.lights when it is first turned on, suspect the panel or
power suppl0<! board. <f the set has video for a while and then loses the bac.lights,
suspect a power suppl0<! board or main board. Tpicall the panel will cause a no
bac.light at turn on, while the power suppl and /ain *oard will cause the bac.lights
to go out after a period of time. <f the set has bac.lights when first turned on and the
lights change their brightness in several steps before Cuic.l going out, suspect the <!
board.
<f the bac.lights are on when the set loses video after it has been on for a while, most
li.el the LVD% cable is defective. <f the set has bac.lights but no video when it is first
turned on, the T0Con or /ain *oard would probabl be at fault.
"lwas chec. the simple things first, li.e a LVD% cable that is not plugged in properl
or a power connector to the panel being loose.
There are eIceptions to ever rule, but this generall should help with narrowing down
no video in LCD sets.

#epair0%olution+
Troubleshooting intermittent video problems can be time consuming, but these
tips ma help narrow down the cause of an intermittent video problem.
The ver first thing to do is to ma.e sure the customer does not have -%D.
The can verif this b Just pressing /enu or Volume on their TV remote
control. <f the do have -%D, then the problem is most li.el in the source and
not the TV.
The neIt step when encountering an intermittent video problem is to find out if
the bac.lights are on when the set looses video. Fou can probabl obtain this
information from the customer before ou schedule the call. "s. if the noticed
if the screen is completel blac. or if it is lit up slightl when the video goes out.
The ma be able to notice it better if the stand at an angle to the TV and turn
it on or off and see if there is an change in brightness.
<f the bac.lights are out, ou need to .now if the set ever has video when the
turn it on, or does it go out after the have had the set on for a period of time. <f
the set occasionall will not have bac.lights when it is first turned on, suspect the panel
or power suppl0<! board. <f the set has video for a while and then
looses the bac.lights, suspect a power suppl0<! board or main board. Tpicall
the panel will cause a no bac.light at turn on, while the power suppl and /ain
*oard will cause the bac.lights to go out after a period of time. <f the set has
bac.lights when first turned on and the lights change their brightness in several
steps before Cuic.l going out, suspect the <! board.
<f the bac.lights are on when the set loses video after it has been on for a while,
most li.el the LVD% cable is defective. <f the set has bac.lights but no video
when it is first turned on, the T0Con or /ain *oard would probabl be at fault.
"lwas chec. the simple things first, li.e a LVD% cable that is not plugged in
properl or a power connector to the panel being loose.
There are eIceptions to ever rule, but this generall should help with
narrowing down no video in LCD sets.
