Hi and thank you for using justanswer.
I`m going to help you with your tv but first i will have a few questions;
Do you get the menu screen ?
asking around and checking online with other people with similar issues, they're saying it's the main board
checking with repair stores, the main board will cost approx. $300
Do you get the menu on sreen ?
or any sound ?
negative.... no sound no video... not even telling me which input I have selected
O.k although it may be the main board , there could also be a fix for that.
I fel I may just bite the bullet and get a new tv, because I don't see spending that kind of money to fix a tv that discontinued
Could you give me a few minutes ?
and about 4 or 5 years old
sure thing.... take your time
be right back
o.k first this is your board number : 39119M0080A
then this is an address where you can get it :http://tv-part.com/39119m0080a-lg-package-assembly.html
Be right back
one repair shop inquired about the board number to get a better price , but I didn't have that info, so thx
But wait there is more :)
oh I can't wait....
Your problem is also associated with a bad capacitor on the power supply circuit board.
hehehe sorry, I'm a bit delirious already.....
I will get a picture of that power board and the part number in a sec.
appreciate it.... thx
This is your power supply:
is this problem quite frequent?
at least from what I read online, it is with this model from LG
On it there is a capacitor , part location number : C208 and its value is 680 mfds at 16 volts
It acn be replace by a 1000mfds at 16 volts
so, if it's both the board and the power supply.... I've been told it can cost close to $500
No what i`m saying is that the $0 .99 capacitor could clear that problem
It is a reported problem with that model
same symptoms and that little capacitor was at fault
and not have anything to do with the board????
for a buck!?
So if you`re into this you could pull out the power supply circuit and either replace the capacitor yourself or have it replaced in a shop.
haven't even tried opening it up yet
Yes thats about it or maybe $2
so.....are we done here?
Well.... if you want to close this you can always reach me later on when we are in the normal Q&A mode
where can I get saidcapacitor?
Any repair shops or radio shack
hmm..... well Jack, I hope this is it. I'm up to my neck in frustration over this, as is
In any case you still have the main board number but i have a good feeling that it will clear that problem as i found a few more post that mention it
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX hope I don't have anymore questions regarding this.....
If so, I can try and contact you again in the normal q&a board
No problem and as i said you will be able to contact me anytime after this.
As a matter of fact i hope you will !!!
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX have a good day.
Same to you , good night
