Hi and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX have been repairing TV's Professionally for over 7+ years and currently own a Shop in FL.
If the light comes on briefly during power up then turns off, I dont think the Bulb is at fault. This sounds more like the Inverter is on it's way out and should be replaced before attempting a replacement on the CCFL Backlight Bulbs in the Panel. A replacement Inverter is only $54.16 with a 180 day money back warranty from here: http://www.shopjimmy.com/auo-19-26006-095-backlight-inverter.htm. Make sure that 19.26006.095 is the correct Part Number on your Inverter Board. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Hey Jonathan. After I provide an answer, you can always reply back if you need further info. That's not a problem. When you remove the back of the TV Panel off, you'll see the Inverter Board located on the Left and should look like this:
Removing it only requires a few screws to be removed and the plugs attached to it. Insert the replacement Board, put in the screws, put the plugs back into the new Board, and place the back panel back on. Turn on the TV and all should be well again. If you have any questions days from now after pressing accept, you can always post back here for help. Our thread is never closed.
Is this the board that you received? If so, the Board Numbers that you need to look at are here:
Attachments are only available to registered users.
This was marked as being the only board for this TV. Let me know what you find.
Take a picture of your Inverter and upload here using the little paper clip icon. If you have problems uploading it, you can email it to email@example.com. That source was not from Shop Jimmy. I always use the Manufacture for reference.
Thanks, I'll let you know when they forward them to me.
From what I see, it looks like the Manufacture simply upgraded the Board and did away with one of the duplicate Power Cables. The two Boards should be the same size and will use 1 Power Cord and 1 Data. Use the two circled below:
