I found this thread while searching for pics/instructions on replacing the main digital board for my Sammie HLP4663WX/XAA.
I have been able to slide the board (and it's metal cover) out only about 1/2 way due to 2 connectors in the back which seem almost impossible to reach and thus disconnect.
I downloaded the service manual that Pez posted in hopes of the process being the same, but it's not.
If anyone knows where I can download a copy of the service manual I need, it would be a godsend. I'd like to get this fixed before the NFL games tomorrow of course....LOL
A little info on this ordeal:
TV worked fine until one morning I turned it on and got no picture, just sound and a faint blue/green vertical shadow on the left side of the screen. I replaced the lamp about 6 months ago. Took the TV in for a free estimate and the repair shop stated the Digital Board needed replacement. They stated the part was $360 + tax and $110 labor. The board wasn't available until mid October at best too.
I decided to visit the website where I bought the lamp (discount-merchant) and found the board I needed for.....hold onto your hats.....$24.99!!!!!!!!!!!
That's right, the very same $360 board, I found brand new, not refurbished for a mere $25. I got it yesterday and am trying to install today. The repair shop said I'll need to have a tech install it because they'll have to realign the mirrors and such. I'm just trying to get it installed and see where it goes from there.
Any help at all would be great.
The sooner the better of course....
