Has anyone successfully used the main A board from a 60" in the 65"? I have not seen any TXN/A1UUUUS or TNPH1043UE listings anywhere but have seen several TXN/A1UVUUS or TNPH1043UD models for the 60. I know there is the issue with 2 vs 3 fans and lots of back and forth discussion on if they will work. I have also seen some attempts that didn't seem to work for one reason or another. Aside from the fan connectors are the boards absolutely identical from a capabilities point of view? I saw some posts that the 65 may have logic or tables for color processing due to differences panels etc.

I see listings saying it will work (from people trying to sell them) but no one has first hand knowledge of actually doing it and seeing it work.

Thanks,
Steve

Start at post 14120 of this thread! There was a whole thing with @powerdubs putting a 65" ZT60 board into a 60" ZT60. He got it to work.

When this happened I went back and read a lot of the more recent stuff starting around page 46x going through some drama and troubles I did see powerdubs journey with his frankenzt and I'm glad he finally got it working. I guess I was more looking to confirm that the 65 display would visually look the same with the board from the 60 and no functionality is lost. What my intention there is if (likely when it seems as the UE board is all but non existent) I replace the board and modify the plug to handle the 3rd fan, if something doesn't seem right or isn't working right should I look at a bad replacement board or expected behavior because the way the boards work.

Yeah putting a 60" board in a 65" display may not work. Primarily due to fans being different. Might send an error code when that middle fan isn't firing up due to the lack of signal from the 60" board. But if it's the difference between throwing it out or trying this to see if you can get it working again.......I would try it.

I was involved with that deal, i had no idea that the 60ZT had the wrong board in it. I had never had a ZT before, i bought it for a good price, and then sold it. Although it was working for him to some degree, I remember him saying that he was having issues with the TV shutting off, and not having all of the picture modes.
If it were me, I would try a 65VT60 before i would use a 60ZT60 board. my 2 cents

I thought the whole thing was pretty fascinating for sure! I was amazed that swapping out different ZT60 Boards like that would work?! Good stuff! I wish we knew if he still had it and if it's performing well.

Does anyone have any experience wall mounting their ZT60?
Was considering picking up the Echogear EGLF1-BK
Any products/mounts you recommend or advice?

Thanks!

I used a monoprice extendable wall mount (dont know the model) rated for 300 pounds. Worked perfectly and was able to do chin ups off it.

I should probably get one of those mounts because ever since my operation I can't do chin ups anymore.

I finally got around to getting my SC board replaced to address my purple haze problem (a problem that begins 20 minutes after the set is powered on with light purple haze that appears on light colored backgrounds (like white or gray) in the top left corner and upper right corner of the screen.

20 minutes later, the problem still persisted with the replacement board. So the new board did not help. However, changing vsus in the service menu from low to high fixed the problem. Go figure. Any way, I'm happy and the life of the tv is extended with a better board, anyway.

I kept my old SC board. The reason I did is I have a theory that in my case the thermal paste on it was inadequate. The replacement, perhaps refurbished by the ebay seller, had probably too much thermal paste on it, but it's still working peachy keen. So, should the replacement SC board ever fail, I may redo the paste on the original one and see if it behaves better than it used to.

Can't recall if I set the vsus back to its default value or not after changing it to see if it would help with the original board. (Just made reminder note to check...) At the time, changing it made no difference, got purple haze either way.

But anyway, cool that you got it all fixed up.

Hi Guys. Here is the run down-

Winter 2016 bought the mystery TV, discovered oddities of menu, hdmi ports, fans, etc- replaced main board with one from a 65ZT60 and everything worked great- had all the proper menu, no error codes, great picture- very happy.

Shortly after that- had Chad B come out and calibrate it. He showed me the readings and said everything looked normal to him and the set calibrated spot on.

Late summer 2016, after 6 months or so the TV started acting up- shutting off, green haze, rebooting... I started a post at Badcaps and was trying to see if those guys had an answer- but then the TV went back to normal and worked 100% normal from late September until this July.

So I am back to trying to figure out what is wrong. They seem to think the solder on the main board might be faulty. You can read the process here- http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=56944

Thanks.

7 blinking lights of death

So, I'm about 30 minutes into a movie last night on Blu ray when bam........ TV screen goes black and I get the flashing 7 lights of death. I can't turn it on or off using normal methods, so I unplug the power cord and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I then unplugged the two HDMI inputs, plugged the power cord back in, and the TV came on with no image (inputs unplugged). I turned it off, plugged the two HDMIs back in, turned it back on, and there was my movie right where I paused the Blu ray. I finished watching the movie (about 2 hours), and then turned the set off.

Is this a random incident, or the beginning of the end ...........

John

Could be. It's been called the 7 blinks of death in the past for other models. I've read in the past it could be the SC board, SD board, SU board or Y Sustain board.

We just moved the 65ZZT60 to a vacation home and it was working. Now, it is blinking 3 times and repeating?


Any recommendations?

65ZT60 to Sony 940E

Hi All

While a new member, I have been lurking for awhile to inform a decision to replace our 2013 TC-P65ZT60 , which is a bit small for the viewing wall in our new home. So we are in the market for a new 75” set.

Our viewing is limited to OTA HD antenna for local channels and, when available, HDR & UHD (“4K”) streaming for everything else (Apple TV & Roku applications for HBO, ESPN, Netflix, etc.). Recent reports suggest we should anticipate a new generation of Apple TV soon will be available to bring HDR 10 and Dolby Vision along with 4K, so our next set must be “future proof” to that extent

We never watch BlueRay discs or other DVD’s or desire a “Home Theater" experience. We do no gaming. We watch some college football and golf but no other sports. The room has the normal lighting found in a family room and the viewing angle is never more than 15 degrees or so off center from a distance of about 10 feet.

Given our budget for this upgrade and recent Sony price reductions, our focus is now on the Sony 940E. My hope is that some of you past and present ZT60 owners could reply to advise what should be our realistic expectations as to picture quality in transitioning from the ZT60 to this modern LCD display?

My thanks in advance for your consideration and comments.

According to the ST50 repair guide it's the A board as the number one problem followed by the P board. The A board is the one with the inputs.

We could not find any parts and so we junked it. A damn shame.

That was dumb. Boards can be bought used or rebuilt.

Hell, the parts in your tv were worth good money- especially the screen.

I have a ZT60 65" a 65" LG OLED e6P and a 75" Sony x900e so I'll share my experiences with you.
1. The 940e will be a light cannon compared to your ZT. Most of my viewing is in the dark and I usually keep the brightness setting low for that viewing on the Sony.
2. The motion handling of an LCD is nowhere near that of a plasma. I adjusted my settings on the 900e to my liking and I'm getting used to the difference. I actually purchased to 900e because I thought it did a better job of motion handling than the 940e.
3. If you come from a plasma you will see blooming and bleeding etc... I think the 940e will do better with this than my 900e. After you set it up and start watching it you'll notice it less and less.
4. With the right settings the tv is extremely colorful and delivers great blacks and contrast. I prefer the DCI color space as apposed to Sonys default color processing.
5. Netflix will look spectacular. I can't say enough about how steaming content looks on the screen.
6. From 10 feet away your experience will be pretty immersive. I just set the 900e up a couple of days ago and I really had to get used to the sheer size at 15 feet.
7. HDR content looks gorgeous on the display. Nice and bright with plenty of punch.
8. I'm spending time with the tv every day and the more I do the more I like it. It is absolutely an adjustment, however I'm glad I replaced our sets with newer tech this year.
