  • Here you can buy some of the boards and controllers, for the most common types of TV. There is a repair market for them because they are not that cheap. With power supplies good luck finding the controller chip, almost no references nor datasheet. Some of them are made why an unkonwn companies. Never repaired a TV PSU, but done a good amount of laptop chargers, and they are not very different at this section. Usually the mosfet shorts, current sensing resistor blow (opens), then high voltage is let into the current sense pin of the chip blowing it. Kinda of chain reaction that require many componentes to replace, even the diode bridge probably gone short and the round fuse is gone. After all this list of components, 90 dollars for a working PSU is a good approach.

  • I had found a 46 inch westinghouse flat screen that was out on the curb for trash Christmas day since they had gotten a new TV to replace it as evidenced by a box to a new TV next to it. I figured it was worth taking it and seeing if it worked, it had no stand or power supply so I used a laptop charger that fit the TV, and it actually is fully functional! The only issue with it was the there was a shadowy spot near the bottom center of the screen from the film wrinkling underneath, but I fastened it to my dresser, and since then after 5 years it is still working to this day

  • i am so glad that i live in norway and that no matter how cheap electronics are and how fast they fail all electronics have a legal warranty of 5 years here, and if they fail i am entiteled to get it fixed, replaced or a full refund on my original purchase. so even if I get a $100 tv it legally has to last more than "1 year!

  • 90 bucks for a used power supply with crappy caps? Idk, I'd guess the chip and other passive components would cost about 5 bucks. I definitely wouldn't spend 90 bucks on a TV this old unless there's some sentimental value to it.
