Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Of course, that's what I'm studying up to do.

I'm considering buying the little dedicated ShopJimmy gizmo to detach the single LED, and maybe some LEDs and diffusion covers so I can do this again...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Bought the LED tester, confirmed that bottom LED strip works, top LED strip doesn't.

Exploring options from here, watching vids, etc.

Thanks for all the info guys :)

Re: Lg 42LE4500 losing backlights

They seem reasonably welcoming to me. They're not necessarily sunshine and daffodils but shit, it's a forum about fixing electronics so I didn't really expect that.

Re: Starting point?

Some of it is really basic but I'm reading it all anyhow. Good stuff, filling me in on some basic things I never really understood!

And yes, even if we're not super young, there's so so much time...

Starting point?

I've never been shy about repairing my own stuff. Asking people I know for advice, YouTubing it, etc. I've been covered in oil, shocked, bloodied my knuckles, set a generator on fire, etc. It's...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

I'll make the orders soon, but I may have to wait a few weeks with the holidays and all.

In the meantime, a question. The LED tester can be used to test the strips prior to opening the chassis and...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Fair enough. What's the cost for the LED tester, if it's not outrageous I wouldn't mind picking it up. Probably won't be the last time I try to fix a TV, honestly.

This seem right?...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

You said 12v right?

Is a car battery a safe test?

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Gotcha, I'll try that now!

EDIT: Okay, tried it. Powered it off and on and even turned it off and on at the wall once with the probes in place while staring at the meter. Nothing across there.

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

TV is on with the light blue. Pressing metal to metal in the socket, set to DC voltage 200, with the probes set correctly and measuring with the probes precisely where you show...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Makes sense, that does seem really really high.

Could the meter just be broken?

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

This is precisely what I was about to report. As far as I can tell, I'm not getting any voltage in that area.

With it grounded on the case, these were the results. The red marks were reading over...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Okay thank you, I suspected I was doing all kinds of things wrong. Thanks for your patience. I hope I haven't damaged the TV, though it still seems to be basically behaving the same, so fingers...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

Okay update.

The meter is set up like this, just because I want to make sure I'm not being silly.

When I ground it, then press deep in the sockets on the...

Re: Hitachi LE55A6R9A - No backlight

I took this TV to learn as much as to actually fix it. If it's a write off or not really "worth it" that's not such a big issue.

I am... somewhat sure but I will double check.

My multi-meter is...
