So now that I have a replacement TV in place, I'm wondering what to do with this broken LG.
(1) Have a tech quote me a repair price ?
(2) Sell in on craigs for whatever I can get
(3) Part out the boards on ebay.
(4) Try to repair myself by replacing the control board,
with part # 6871QCH038C, which is the latest replacement
part for orig part # 6871QCH038A
I came across a service training manual last night and it showed
them doing something like hooking up a bios programmer to the
controller. So could I just replace that board, or would I also need to
flash something as well on it? I've read of folks replacing this board
for the vertical lines problem that eventually leads to no picture problem ...
but nobody has said explicitly that it solved the problem for sure. One guy
said it made it better but he still had lines.
Looking at the prices of these boards, I would be tempted to part them out
at 1/2 to 3/4 retail on ebay ... as I could get around $100 + per board.
Advice, comment appreciated.
