LCD Direct View Overview


Safety and Handling Regulations
1. Approximately 20 minute pre-run time is required before making any picture performance adjustments from the Menu. 2. Refer to the Voltage/Current silk screening on the Switch Mode Power Supply. 3. C-MOS circuits are sensitive to static electricity. Use caution when dealing with these IC and circuits. 4. Exercise care when making voltage and waveform checks to prevent costly short circuits from damaging the unit. 5. 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 Look at the symptom carefully and determine what circuits could be causing Define 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, or listen for relay closing etc. 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 SECTION


This switch mode power supply develops Stand By 5V at all times when AC is applied. At power on, it develops 12V and 24V for the Main board And 24V for the Inverter.
This power supply draws a little less that 1 watt during stand by mode. The fuse F101 reads 159.9V (from hot ground) during this time. When the controller chip (IC501) receives the PWR-ON command via P201 Pin 19, the primary section increases its current supplying ability. The Primary fuse F101 now reads 390V. P201 Connector: (To Main Board) 12V is routed out P201 pins 5 and 6 and 24V is routed out P201 pins 1 and 2. P203 Connector: (To Inverter Board) 24V is routed out P203 pins 1 through 5.

Power Supply (Main Power Switch Type 1) Location


There are three types of Main Power switch used in LG televisions. Type 1: Shuts off AC to the Power Supply. Type 2: Opens ground to the front IR board. (Stand-By 5V Remains, the Main board stays alive). This prevents any activity of the IR or the Key Board. When the Switch is opened, a line called Power Key pulls up high when ground opens. When the switch is closed, this same line called Power Key feeds back to the Microprocessor and the Micro. Turns on the Power. Type 3: Opens ground to the front IR board. (Stand-By 5V turns off, the Main board is dead). This prevents any activity of the IR or the Key Board. When the Switch is opened, a line called Power Key pulls up high when ground opens. This line feeds back to the Main board and from there it routes to the Power Supply. The high tells the Controller chip to turn off STBY-5V. When the switch is closed, this same line called Power Key now goes high and feeds back to the Power Supply and tells the controller chip to turn STBY-5V on.

If the TV wont come on, be sure to check the Main Power Switch before assuming a failure has occurred. This switch breaks AC to the SMPS.

Power Supply Board Low Voltage Test 1


AC Should not be applied at any time while adding resistors or while unplugging connectors as damage to the circuit Board may occur. a) When AC is applied, the SMPS MUST be producing STBY 5V on pins 7, 8, 9 or 10 of P201. If 5V Standby is not being generated, the SMPS is defective and must be replaced. There is no need to continue with the next test. But, make sure the Main Power Switch is On. (b) Unplug P700 on the Main Board to make insertion of the Resistors much easier. TEST 1: No Backlights during this test

(1) Add a 100 resistor between (5V STBY) pin 7, 8, 9 or 10 and Pin 2 (PWR). Apply AC. This will turn on the power supply. a) Check that the 24V and 12V power supplies are turned on, P201 (24V pins 17 and 18) P201 (12V pins 13 and 14) P203 (24V pins 1 through 5) to the Inverter. (2) Remove AC power.

INVERTER (LED BACKLIGHTS) SECTION


The Inverter receives 24V from the SMPS on CN1 pins 1~5.. The Inverter On (INV ON) command from CN1 pin 12 starts the Inverter drive signals. P-DIM is delivered from the Main board through the SMPS to the Inverter on CN1 pin 13. The Inverter is responsible for delivering B+ (27.5V) to each of the 64 LED Blocks. This is accomplished by 4 DC to DC Converters (M1~M4) on the board, (easily identified by the 4 yellow capacitors on the lower left of the board. M1 and M3 are routed out CN4 M2 and M4 are routed out CN3.

It also must deliver grounding pulses (Drive Signals) to each of the 64 LED Blocks. This is accomplished by the 32 switching components Q19~Q50 each controlling 2 blocks. The Left hand connector CN3 connects the 4 LED Boards (32 blocks) on the right side of the screen and the Right hand connector CN4 connects to the 4 LED Boards (32 blocks) on the left.

LED Backlight Basics (LED Layout)


The picture below shows a close up of one of the 512 individual LEDs contained within the backlight boards. There are two sides each with 256 LEDs (32 blocks) in each side. An individual block is manipulated by the Main board Dimming IC IC3502 in accordance with the video intensity at the specific location of the block of LEDs for that video content (Local Dimming). 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. Also, all blocks are manipulated simultaneously via (Global Dimming) by IC100 Video Processor. The Overall intensity of the backlights is manipulated by the Global Dimming signal from the Mstar (IC100) chip called Digital-Dimming (PWM-DIM). A minimum of 21V required to light all 8 LEDs in a block Pins 1,2,13,14,16,17,28,29,31,32,43,44,46,47,58,59 On CN3 and CN4 Panel Disassembly required. (Not 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.

This represents One Block. There are 4 boards per/side. Each board contains 8 Blocks. Totaling 32 Blocks per/side. 64 Blocks over all. In the Diode Mode Check, the LED will light. (2.6V Reading)

T-CON (TFT DRIVE) BOARD SECTION

LCD Panel Controller Board


The T-Con Processor UC1 receives from the Main Board via CN1 dual 12 Bit LVDS (Video) Signals and CN2 dual 12 Bit LVDS (Video) Signals. Both LVDS cables are carrying 24 bit signals. UC1 then processes these signals into TFT Drive Signals. It delivers its output signals through connectors CN4 and CN5 to drive the LCD Panel. 12V is supplied to the T-Con Board on connector CN1 from the Main Board (easily measured at fuse F1). There is one regulator that creates 1.8V developed at pin 2 (Center Leg) of U11. U5 is a DC to DC converter IC which develops the Panels driver voltages. 16V, 3.3V, -5V and 26V. These voltages can be read at the ribbon connector or at test points on the board which will be identified later. 60 February 2010 LCD DV 42LH90

FRONT (IR, INTELLIGENT SENSOR and MOVING LED) SECTION


The Intelligent Sensor and IR board (located on the bottom left as viewed from the rear) contains the IR (Infrared Remote Sensor) and the Intelligent Sensor. This board also connects with the Side Key Board and the Moving LED board which contains the 10 front Power LEDs. The IR board receives it operating B+ via P101 pin 6 (STBY 5V) and pin 11 (3.3V) from connector P1200 on the Main board. The Intelligent Sensor communicates with the Micro/Video Processor IC100 Mstar Chip via clock and data lines SCL1 and SDA1 (AA17 and AA18) arriving on connector P101 from P700 pins 1 and 2 on the Main board. The Front Power LEDs are controlled by these same Clock and Data lines which communicate with the LED Driver IC U1 on the Moving LED board. The IR pulses (5V p/p) P101 pin 9 are sent to P1200 on the Main board and on to the Microprocessor (IC100) via pin C4. The Key board is routed to the IR board via P100 to P102 on the Key 1 and Key 2 lines, (Key 1 pin 1 and Key 2 pin 3). Then out P101 pins 4 and 5 to P1200 on the Main Board. Then to the Microprocessor A4 and B4 lines.
