Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello and sorry you're having problems. One easy way to test if the Red LED is bad is to put it into the Green or Blue slot to see if it will light as well. The battery test generally works fine, but you would need at least 9 volts to get the LED to light dimly.
Also, is there no red on any source you're viewing on the TV? What is connected to it and using what type of cabling?
Okay I understand. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a component video cabling issue. Now, what size battery did you use to measure the Red LED and where are you receiving these replacements from?
Thanks for the reply. Just to be sure that the battery is not too low to power this particular LED and to conclude that this one is indeed bad, can you try swapping it into the green or blue LED's slot and see if ti will light?
Okay that sounds good.
Did you have any luck?
Okay, good test. As you likely could tell this would mean the Red LED chip is bad and you would want to setup a return with the seller, and/or find an alternative source for the Red LED.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. You can follow up at any time if needed.
I would have no way of being able to cross reference that unfortunately. You could try using the part number off of the original LED module and searching that way. Have you tried that yet?
I understand. Unfortunately I don't have any sources other than what you can also find. Simply Googling the model number of the TV and red LED. Let me check Shop Jimmy, as they are for sure out of stock- but usually have a part number of some sort.
I actually found one in stock through Encompass Parts below that matches the part number you listed:
Ugh. Okay I saw "Vendor Purchase Order-YES", but then it says no longer available. That's confusing.
I'm just Googling that part number, other than what comes up- I don't have any other intimate sources for the part. However, Samsung Parts shows 4-6 weeks (Nationwide Backorder) for the part:
Do you need further assistance with this?
