Thanks so much for your reply.
I have been conversing with networm, but his TCON board # and the TV Model # match up as he has the G8 build of the panel. So, he didn't run into this mis-match of the Model -vs- Board # issue.
My 52XBR4 is a G7 build of the panel and because of that I think our TCON board #'s don't match up.
I have removed the TCON board from my TV, and there is no Part # on the board, but there is a board #. The Board # listed is 404652HHC8LV1.8
This particular board # is available from shopjimmy.com, but the problem is that it says that the Known TV Models that this part is for are 40XBR4 or 40XBR5.
Visually, if I look at the zoomed in image, it matches (location of IC's etc) with the TCON board off of my TV.http://www.shopjimmy.com/samsung-lj9...-con-board.htm
Could you suggest, which TCON I should buy ?
Should I match the board # that came off of my TV or the one that shows as Known Model # 52XBR4/XBR5http://www.shopjimmy.com/samsung-lj9...-con-board.htm
My 52XBR4 is an early build with the G7 Panel (Serial # 800xxxx)
I am wondering if in the early builds of the 52XBR4, SONY was using a common TCON board for the 40/46/52 XBR4's ?
So, would you suggest that I get a matching TCON board to what is currently in my TV (i.e. 404652HHC8LV1.8) or should I get the board # that is advertised for my Model # (404652FIX2HC6LV1.3)
The physical layout of the 2 different TCON boards is certainly different (visually speaking) and if that is the case would I also have to get a matching plate and the heat sink as well ?
If you could please look into whether the TCON board's between these 2 panels are interchangeable, I would really appreciate it.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
