Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

42PZ77U Panny Plasma tv. I just sent the SC board for repair, but in putting it back in the SU board(s) TNPA4383 that are connected together by a little plastic ribbon type cable, one side pulled out and a little tab popped up. I put the end back into the connector and pushed the tab back down and it clicked. Is this how that little ribbon piece fits in? Don't want to turn it on now as I'm afraid of that little connection might be fubar. Any clue? Thanks.



Answers :

This is how the connect, just make sure that they are connected tightly and that you didn't bend any of the pins and you should be good to go. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection.The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to wreck em. Just make sure they are tight and clicked down when done.
Since the tab clicked it means is secure. The tab is use to make the ribbon cable secure and tight to make the electrical connections.

Hello. I have a LG 47lg50-ua that when turned on, the right half of the screen goes white. The left half still plays fine. The warrenty had just expired so. I took the back of the tv off and looked around. I noticed that the top left ribbon cable (looking at the TV from the back) attached to the T-Con board (a CMO 35-D020223) had puffed up a bit. I took the bad ribbon cable out and put the good ribbon cable on the bad side. After the TV was turned on, the right side of the TV stayed white and wo

My Vizio plasma vp422 made a loud pop and went off. Now it won't come back on. U can turn on and the vizio display turns from orange to white but nothing else.

Also I checked the 4 little white fuses and their is continuity running through them. I don't really know where to start looking next. Would it be one of the boards? Is there any way of checking

Audio problem sometimes the sound goes out. if i start to put ear phones in the jack, sound comes back. first time it happened, a few weeks ago, sound came back and it was ok for a while. today, had to put the speaker partially in, gently wiggle, let it hang there, would work a few minutes, then i had to gently wiggle again.
