Hello guy's. Well, this time, I picked up a 40inch toshiba LCD tv. Not a scratch on it it. In pristine condition. Thing is, has sound, powers up, but no picture. Not even a menu screen. I have been waiting for a long time to find a broken tv like this for free. I even bought a entertainment center and it has been taking up space cuz I am to stingy to buy a brand new tv, they bust 2 months after the warranty is over anyway. The tv I have presently is a RCA HDTV projection deal. That thing is a beast and takes up way to much space and weighs almost as much as my fridge. I fixed that one with a few caps on the power supply and has been running strong for the past 6 years. That TV cost me 40$ knowing full well it would shut down sporadically. So I swapped a few caps and 6 or 7 yrs later still good. But I wanted HDMI, optical surround sound and PC hook up and USB and all that. So I found this toshiba. Has all I wanted. I don't really care for the newer smart tv's. More gadgets than I can handle. Anyways, to get to the meat of the problem. I tried a factory reset procedure, didn't work, ok, I knew that, but tried it anyway as a first step to trouble shoot. Checked the power supply, all good. The main board is getting power as per the sound still active. Voltages are all present. Grounds good and stand-by signal ok. Then on to the back-light invertor. 24v main rails present on all 4 pins for the four transformers of the BL PCB. 5v present for the BL on pin and all 4 grounds good. Lo and behold, I find this. See pictures I took with my old flip cell phone. So I go online, and find this video. I was trying to find a replacement BL invertor board. E-bay has a bunch listed, all of them are sold. Went to a few sites that list the board, sold out. This got me thinking. Major product failure. Watch this video. Fast forward to 2min 18sec mark. Notice something similar?? Same bat channel, same bat place. So I start investigating this afternoon the innards of this "toshiba". Almost everything in it is stamped "samsung". http://electropartsonline.com/lj97-02098b.html Out of stock!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-40E200U1-Backlight-Inverter-Board-/272133244650?_ul=BO Vendido!!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-BAC...40FT1U-40E200U1-40E200U2-/172177072063?_ul=AR Finalizo!!

They reroute me to a link here. http://www.shopjimmy.com/samsung-lj97-02098b-backlight-inverter-component-repair-kit.htm Like I am going to replace those 14 transistors, the IC and the two fuses on a most likely fried PCB board. 14.99$ plus same shipping charges when I can get a new or known good used one. Samsung is one shifty company. Their crap is in everything. Designed to fail at the same bat place, same bat channel. If anybody here finds a BL invertor board for this series of horse shyte made electronics, plz let me know. I am coming up emtpy everywhere I go. And no way in hell I am going to fuss with that component repair kit!! Thx in advance for any help, if any is to be had. PPl are throwing these perfectly working LCD's out for a few 2cent ic chips pre designed to fail.
