Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Why would I rate you when you haven't helped me yet? To be honest, unless we can start figuring things out I'm not seeing any sort of value for this money as far. Hopefully we can change that.
I have checked the connectors... again and they are secure and look normal. I have reinstalled the SC board and now the blinks are back to 7 instead of 8 when I disconnected it.
Can you please give me some sort of idea as to what I'm dealing with here? There are no obviously burned areas. I'm assuming it's one of the boards that's a problem, but I'm not certain as to which one and would like to see what you think and the logic behind it so that I can verify I agree with the diagnosis. I am pretty tech savvy which is why I got to the point that I did before needing help, but I do not wish to just replace things randomly without some sort of idea as to why.
I understand the troubleshooting process and the difficulty of the situation of not having the TV in front of you. I'm frustrated with the amount of back and forth that was necessary to obtain relatively simple information that I would have expected in one response rather than three.
I will not leave feedback but hopefully these other individuals are able to help. I have seen people respond very well on this site on other threads that I googled which is why I decided to try it and have a certain expectation that is not really being met so far. If you are not familiar with Panasonic, then that's totally fine, but please help connect me with someone that does so that I can move forward.
Can someone please tell me if it makes sense to replace the SC board or other boards? I have found the parts that are needed, but want to figure out if simply replacing boards makes sense at this point. I have read that panny's have a tendency for problems with their SC boards and that it would make sense for an upgrade on the screws as that is an issue as well.
If there is someone familiar with panasonic that would be awesome. If not, then please refund my money and I will just do this on my own with other threads from other websites.
