euro-pro llc :

hi

euro-pro llc :

I will try to help you with this question

euro-pro llc :

I understand the VS and VA are OK

euro-pro llc :

How about the Vscan voltage on Y sus board(LG name this voltage -Vy)

euro-pro llc :

You can measure this voltage across a resistor on the Y sustain board- not against the cold ground!

euro-pro llc :

This -Vy should be around -190 to -200V( negative voltage)

euro-pro llc :

If this voltage is low, then try and disconnect the Y scan buffer(s) board(s) and see if the voltage goes back up !

euro-pro llc :

Please let me know what you find

euro-pro llc :

Please provide the model code, something like 50PC1DRA-UA.AUSLLH, found on the label on the back cover

Customer :

will have to in morning left for day

Customer :

Ok the Vy Tip reads 0 Volts . Model code 50pc1dra-ua.a

euro-pro llc :

Hi,

euro-pro llc :

Thank you for the reply

euro-pro llc :

Please make sure you check the -Vy ACROSS the marked resistor!- and not having the black lead onto the cold ground

euro-pro llc :

If you have a 0 reading , it means the Y sus board is not working

euro-pro llc :

Please disconnect the Y scan buffer boards out of the circuit, by totally unplugging them from the connectors onto the Y sus board

euro-pro llc :

power up the tv set and check the -Vy again- if still 0= defective Y sus board.

euro-pro llc :

I will look up the part# for it right now

euro-pro llc :

The part# for this Y sus board is:

euro-pro llc :

6871QYH039A

euro-pro llc :

I found it for you here:

euro-pro llc :

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-VIZIO-Y-SUS-6871QYH039A-ALSO-WORKS-FOR-6871QYH039B-6870QYC004C-EBR30597501-/271250350868?pt=US_TV_Boards_Parts_Components&hash=item3f27c7e314

euro-pro llc :

Now, in case the -Vy goes up to the correct value about-190 to -200V after disconnecting from the circuit of the Y upper or Y lower scan drive boards= the Y sustain is Ok, and the issue is one of the Y upper or lower scan buffer boards !

euro-pro llc :

part # for these boards are:

euro-pro llc :

6871QDH088A upper scan buffer

euro-pro llc :

6871QDH089A lower scan buffer boards

euro-pro llc :

I hope this will help you getting this tv taken care of!
