SECTION 1: LCD OVERVIEW


Safety and Handling Regulations
1. Approximately 20 minute pre-run time is required before any adjustments are performed. 2. Refer to the Voltage Sticker on the Switch Mode Power Supply silk screening. (+/- volt). 3. Be cautious of electric shock from the Backlight section, it uses high voltage AC. Check that the Power Supply and Drive Circuits are completely discharged because of residual current stored before Circuit Board removal. 4. C-MOS circuits are sensitive to static electricity. Use caution when dealing with these IC and circuits. 5. Exercise care when making voltage and waveform checks to prevent costly short circuits from damaging the unit. 6. Be cautious of lost screws and other metal objects to prevent a possible short in the circuitry.

Checking Points to be Considered


1. Check the appearance of the Replacement Panel and Circuit Boards for both physical damage and part number accuracy. 2. Check the model label. Verify model names and board model matches. 3. Check details of defective condition and history. Example: Oscillator failure dead set, etc

Basic Troubleshooting Steps


Define, Localize, Isolate and Correct

Define Look at the symptom carefully and determine what circuits could be causing the failure. Use your senses Sight, Smell, Touch and Hearing. Look for burned parts and check for possible overheated components. Capacitors will sometimes leak dielectric material and give off a distinct odor. Frequency of power supplies will change with the load. Observation of the front Power LED may give some clues. Localize After carefully checking the symptom and determining the circuits to be checked and after giving a thorough examination using your senses the first check should always be the DC Supply Voltages to those circuits under test. Always confirm the supplies are not only the proper level but be sure they are noise free. If the supplies are missing check the resistance for possible short circuits. Isolate To further isolate the failure, check for the proper waveforms with the Oscilloscope to make a final determination of the failure. Look for correct Amplitude Phasing and Timing of the signals also check for the proper Duty Cycle of the signals. Sometimes glitches or road bumps will be an indication of an imminent failure. Correct The final step is to correct the problem. Be careful of ESD and make sure to check the DC Supplies for proper levels. Make all necessary adjustments and lastly always perform a Safety AC Leakage Test before returning the product back to the Customer.

Power Supply (SMPS) PWB Operational Troubleshooting


Power Supply Troubleshooting Ac voltage is supplied to the Power Supply at Connector SC100. AC Detect is generated and should be present at connector P201 pin 8 (5V). The AC input also generates a Hot Ground primary power supply that runs in two states, Stand-By (156V) and Run (386V) measured at Fuse F101. This primary voltage develops all other voltages that are output from the power supply. During Stand-By, the 5 Volt Standby should be present at connector P201, Pins 9,10,11 or 12. If Missing remove AC Power and unplug Connector P201, apply AC Power and recheck for presence of both 5 Volt Standby and AC Detect. Loss of either 5 Volt Standby or AC Detect would be a Power Supply Failure. Presence of 5 Volt Standby and AC Detect would be an indication of a failure on the Main Board. Suspect a possible short circuit loading the supply. Remember to observe the Front Power Indicating LED this may save some time. A lit LED most likely indicates the Stand-By 5V voltage is present!
A loss of the AC Detect line will prevent the front power LED from lighting. Because it is driven by I2C bus communication.

The Main Board sends two commands to the Power Supply Board one being PWR the other is INV ON. These two voltages are used to control the power on turn on sequence. First via PWR (Pin 19) also known as RL ON activates the 24Volt to the Inverters and the 16 Volt and 12 Volt lines to the Main board. The 2nd command is INV ON. It passes through the Power Supply to the Inverter Boards to turn them on. If either command voltage (PWR or INV ON) is missing it will result in a no picture symptom. These voltages can easily be checked with the volt meter! Remove AC Power, unplug Connector P204, reapply AC Power and press the ON-OFF Button on either the Remote Control or Power Button on the Unit. Watch for the Power ON LED to change color from red to blue. This is an indication the PWR Signal was created on the the Main board. Check P800 or P201 pin 19 for the PWR command (2.8V) to the Power Supply. Check P201 for 16V (Pins 1 or 2) and 12V (Pins 5 or 6). Check P204/P205 Pins 1,2,3,4 or 5 for the presence of the 24 Volt Supply. Confirm Pin 12 of P204/P205 went to 3.3V. This is the INV ON signal needed to turn on the Inverters and light the backlight LEDs. Problems with either voltage can be easily solved by following the simple steps on the next page.

TEST 1 Power Supply PWB Low Voltage Test


AC Should not be applied at any time while adding resistors or while unplugging connectors as damage to the circuit PWB may occur. a) The SMPS PWB MUST be producing STBY 5V on pins 9, 10, 11 or 12 (5V). b) The SMPS PWB MUST be generating ACD (AC Detect) Pin 18 check for 5V. If the conditions (a) or (b) above are not met, the SMPS PWB is defective and must be replaced. There is no need to continue with the test. (c) Unplug P800 on Main PWB and P204, P205 to the inverters. TEST 1: (2) Add a 10K resistor between (5V STBY) pin 9, 10, 11 or 12 and Pin 19 (PWR). Apply AC. This will turn on the power supply. a) Check that the 16V and 12V power supplies are turned on, P201 (16V pins 1 and 2) (12V pins 5 and 6) b) Check that the 24V (Inverter B+) is turned on on P205 and P204 pins 1~5. (3) Remove AC power. Reinsert the plugs P204/P205 to the inverters.

TEST 2 Power Supply PWB Backlights Test


P800 Connector disconnected from the Main PWB. Apply AC after adding jumper. Continue if the 1st test was successful. Leave original 10K resistor in place. (4) Add a jumper wire between Pin 20 (INV On/Off) to Pin 19 (PWR). (5) Apply AC Power. This simulates a Power On and Backlight On command. Observe the Backlights. a) If normal, the backlights should turn on. (They will be dim.) b) If no backlight activity, reconfirm the 24V is being generated and output on P204/P205 connector Pins 1~5. If not, unplug P204 or P205 and recheck. If not SMPS is defective. If yes, Inverter is loading down the 24V line. d) Confirm the INV On/Off line Pin 20 is going to 3V. Confirm the Inverter On command is leaving P204/P205 Pin 12. e) If all the above is normal, refer to the Inverter section to check voltages on the Inverters.

INVERTERS (BACKLIGHT LED DRIVE) PWBs


NEW: This set utilizes LEDs as backlights driven by the Inverters. These LEDs are manipulated in accordance to the necessary Light Source intensity according to the video content (Contrast Ratio) demands. Control signals to the Inverters are sent out from the T-CON PWB. B+ (24V) is sent from the Power Supply (SMPS). There are 8 Vertical columns and 16 horizontal rows for a total of 128 individual LED Blocks. Each Block contains 12 LEDs (3 X 4). INVERTER M Control T-CON Control INVERTER S

LED BACKLIGHT BASICS (LED Layout)


The picture below shows a close up of one of the 1536 individual LEDs contained within the backlights. There are two sides each with 768 LEDs (64 blocks) in each side. And individual block is manipulated by the T-CON board. These blocks are manipulated Global (All at once) and in accordance with the video intensity at the specific location of the block of LEDs for that video content (Local). In other words, if the video is dark in the area of the screen that is being illuminated by a block of LEDs, they will be dimmed. Not counting Black there are 3 levels of intensity of the LEDs. The Overall intensity of the backlights is manipulated by the Global Dimming signal from the BCM chip called Digital-Dimming.

A minimum of 30V required to light all 12 LEDs in a block Bottom 2 pins on the M Top 2 pins on the S Panel Disassembly required. (Note during warranty period.) A simple Forward Bias diode check will cause the diode to illuminate if it is good. Check any pin on the right to any pin on the left.

LED Backlight Troubleshooting Suggestions


When dealing with the LED backlights that have a problem: Remember, the LED backlights are controlled by two inverters, so the screen is broken down into two sections. Then each inverter controls 8 sections of the screen. ENTIRE PANEL WONT LIGHT: 1) Is the 24V being supplied to the Inverters from the SMPS? (CN1/CN501 Pins 1 ~ 5) 2) Is the Inverter On Command arriving at both Inverters? (CN1/CN501 Pin 12) (Main to SMPS P201 Pin 20) 3) Disconnect the ribbon cables from the T-CON PWB to the Inverters, if backlights turn on, could be a T-CON problem. THE PANEL WONT LIGHT: 1) Confirm steps 1 and 2 above for the particular Inverter involved. 2) Disconnect the ribbon cable from the T-CON PWB going to the particular Inverter involved, could be a T-CON problem. (CN8/CN9) SECTIONS OF THE PANEL WONT LIGHT: 1) Locating the connectors controlling that particular section should be easy, just compare the section that is out and align with the particular cable. 2) Looking at the connector going to the LED backlights, look at the bottom 2 pins on the M inverter or the top 2 pins of the S inverter, check for 39V? If missing, unplug the connector and recheck. If still missing, continue; 3) Using the Interconnect diagram, locate the fuse protecting the 24V to the DC to DC converter thats developing the 39V for that connector, if open replace the inverter. 4) Be sure to test the Backlight LEDs that attach to that connector for shorted condition. With the connector unplugged, put the Red lead on the bottom 2 pins on the M inverter or the top 2 pins of the S inverter and the Black lead on any other 8 pins. All should read open. Or apply 30~38V on the bottom 2 pins on the M inverter or the top 2 pins of the S inverter and the (-) lead to any of the other 8 pins while observing that section of the panel, the LEDs should illuminate across the screen in the section controlled by that plug. ENTIRE PANEL BACKLIGHTS ARE DIM: 1) Disconnect the ribbon cables from the T-CON PWB to the Inverters, could be a T-CON problem. (CN8/CN9)

Main PWB Micronas IC1000 Chip Overview

Troubleshooting

The Main PWB contains the MICRONAS chip IC1000. This IC is a Full-HD Rate Converter with Motion Blur Removal and Film DeJuddering for 1080p 100/120 Hz LCD panels. Vector Based Motion Compensation with Frame Rate Conversion
(eliminates the need for 3:2 Pull Down)

Internal Dual 10 bit LVDS input Quadruple 12 bit LVDS output Motion Blur Removal increases the video frames by Interpolating a new image frame between each original frame (Motion Estimated Data Insertion) MEDI. Juddering is a phenomenon which appears on film based programming due to the 24 frames per second system used for recording, the picture develops visual artifacts when converted to 60 frames per second. 3:2 Pull Down was developed to eliminate this problem. Frame Rate Conversion (Real Cinema) eliminates the need for 3:2 Pull Down.
