Replacing Sanyo DP50747 Powerboard - Help Appreciated!
I recently bought a used Sanyo DP50747 TV which the owners had for a year and then the picture stopped working for them. They took it to a electronics repair store which said that the "motherboard" would have to be replaced, to quote the previous owners. They were were quoted at $300-800 or so for labour and parts.
So I cam along and picked it up for $15 from them and found a used powerboard for under $100 (no such thing as a motherboard), and now need to know if there is anything I should know before opening up the TV and replacing the powerboard.
Is it pretty straightforward? Is there a manual I should refer to? Should I do any tests on the parts? Is there anything I should be careful about doing? Anything specific to repairing plasmas, as I've never done this before...
Any input would be appreciated!
P.S. I know this article was posted on iFixIt, but there really wasn't much there:
Is this a good question?
