Re: Sony Bravia KDL-52S4100 No picture or Sound

The TV should find the software if you've installed it at the USB drive's root. Did you format the drive? FAT32 for S4100's - not sure for your set, but I assume it's the same.

Re: Samsung LN52B750 Capacitors 52" LCD TV help

Panasonic FC, FM, and FR caps are recommended a lot here. There are quite a few other good brands. You can go up in voltage without any problem - I'd upgrade to at least 25V. The physical size of the...

Re: Toshiba 42HP66 Plasma Voltage Help

Yes, I agree - I only replace one IPM at a time, also. However, the owner should expect that the second IPM can go at any time.

Re: Toshiba 42HP66 Plasma Voltage Help

Yes, it sounds like the YSus died; the IPM most likely is shot. Generally, it's recommended that both ZSus and YSus IPMs be replaced at the same time because of similar wear rates. If you're going to...

Re: Toshiba 42HP66 Plasma Voltage Help

If your VS and VA voltages can be adjusted to spec, you may have issues with the YSus. BTW, the original ZSus probably has a blown IPM (large module under the heat sink).

Re: New tool, Aoyue 8800! Desoldering just got easy!

If you don't ask, you don't get. There's no harm in asking. Why try fixing something that has already broken twice in such a short span? I'd either get a refund or cut my losses and buy a Hakko.

Re: New tool, Aoyue 8800! Desoldering just got easy!

Maybe I missed something in the thread, but it sounds like you're giving in too easily. Did you actually contact SRA? Policies are guidance, not always strictly followed.

I'd still contact SRA and request a refund. I'd then buy a Hakko :)

Re: LG 50PV450 goes black after a few seconds

You can do other tests on the YSus, ZSus and PSU, but the main board is most likely faulty based on your symptom description. They are generally only repairable by the average DIY'er in rare...

Re: LG 50PV450 goes black after a few seconds

If the cable box was damaged, the TVs main board may also be toast. You can try running test patterns to see if you get anything onscreen. To run test patterns:

(1) Unplug TV.
(2) Disconnect the...

Re: Polaroid FLM-3701 no power/ standy light

It could be the angle of the pic, but it looks like you have quite a few blown caps on the left side of pic 2. I count 8 - possibly 9. I can't clearly see the cap closer to the top of the pic on the...

Don't sweat it. No one here is all-knowing. I can't count how many times I've made posts I wish I could have back.

Re: Help Samsung PN43D490A1D

I'd guess that the connector was not fully seated because the OP had just pulled it to do a test. Also, I don't see any bad caps in those pics.

Like I always suggest with this era of Samsung...

Re: LG 42PC3D Green Screen that corrects as TV “warms up”. Help Appreciated!

Yeah, this is a tricky one. The mal-discharge I haven't been able to correct in several cases has been less severe than what you're seeing (normally, just minute pixel sparkles that fade as the TV...

Re: LG 42PC3DVA Plasma no picture.

I've heard of people cutting the pins - never had to do it myself. Heat gun on low setting, maybe? Also, did you try adding some fresh solder to help with flow?

Re: LG 50PT350 sound but no picture

I believe you can check that buffer as you described - not sure, though. LGs buffer failures are normally more forgiving than Samsungs, so a bad buffer shouldn't kill a YSus.
