I realize there is already an issue thread related to all info regarding all power/board failure codes but i've been doing some searching and hopefully we as S2 owners can get a better understanding of our specific set.
My 65' S2 went on me Sunday 2 min to kickoff (no surprise there). I was getting 7 blinking lights and out of warranty so i figured i'd try the easy fixes (unplugging and waiting, taking out the hdmi cables, holding the power button to reset it, etc) and still the 7 blinking lights.
So i'm thinking the SC board is probably shot according to most solutions online. I took the sc board out and now get 6 blinking lights so i went ahead and ordered and sc board hoping that this is the fix (same exact problem in the video i watched so i figured why not)
I'm wondering if there is anything else i should check while i'm waiting for the SC board to arrive. I've checked over all the capacitors and there are 2 on the main (most center on the tv) board that do not have the clear indented X on the top of them. As in the top is fairly smooth. They don't look bubbled but they are not as flat as the smaller capacitors on the same board.
Should i be replacing these too?
Is there anything else i should upgrade hardware wise that is a weak point on these tv's?
The TV is 2 years old now and i'm still in love with it. Hopefully after this i can be issue free until i purchase an OLED!
