Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
You may have to undo the metal support at one end - if nothing falls apart as a result and if that can be done at all. And then bend slightly or swivel aside the support.
But that sounds risky and not likely at all to be the right method. Too non-standard sounding with today's well-engineered and put-together devices. No, it would be better to give me a picture of the situation, overall rather than close-in, so I can judge the situation better.
And, having a service manual would help with this. Would you like me to research a source for one?
I'm sorry if I provided no additional data to what you already had and already tried.
I admit I have no info of my own on this problem at present, so I must either get ideas/data on it, or turn the case over to others.
It sounds highly unusual to have this problem. Is it possible that other boards must be removed first?? I'm just throwing out that thought, but I doubt it's the answer.
Is this the TCON board in question, for your TV?:
Let me know, please. Thanks.
I asked about the TCON board (pictured on the page the link pointed to) not so much to double-check your choice of part, as to ask whether it was mounted as shown in the picture.
I have Opted Out, following your request... but am still curious about the picture on the page linked to, and whether it matches the mounting of the board you want to remove. In case I might be able to help... my apologies if I cannot.
(My Opting Out and opening the case to others, does not cut off communication between us.)
What splendid news!
I think that was something like the solution I talked about speculatively earlier - getting the brace or bar loose at one end at least.
Please rate my work and my answer, so that this case may be closed. Thanks.
