No idea if anyone still frequents this thread but just in case there's someone out there I have a question about the conversion. I received my AWW1353 board in the mail and it wasn't packaged ideally (packed in a small bubble mailer rather than a hard box like I had hoped). It seems like it's probably okay but the last thing I want to do is put a damaged board in to the TV and then pull my hair out trying to figure out whether it's the board or installation error when my TV doesn't power on.
Upon close inspection I noticed 3 possible problems. I'm hoping that none of them are real problems:
1. One of the two small capacitors right next to the two big tall ones is bent and touching the other small capacitor. Is this okay?
2. The two big capacitors were exposed from the plastic wrap over the board and and sitting right up against the bubble mailer. They look okay though. Are these things easily damaged by bumps or weight?
3. The optical port is not flush with the board - in fact the entire block port moves pretty easily up and down like a lever and is only half-attached to the board. This may be normal, or it may be broken.
Can anyone who has done the swap chime in on whether I should be worried with these? Or am I just looking for problems? It was definitely a used board, apparently pulled from a cracked screen.
