Introduction

This is a television/PC monitor that did not work after a storm. I expected to replace a few capacitors, but it only needed a single diode at the cost of twenty-nine cents and about an hour of labor. A new power board for this TV would have cost somewhere around $80.

This is the LG 17LX1R that will no longer turn on. Remove the cover from the stand by. Press down on the two tabs. The cover should come off easily.

  • Check all capacitors for blown tops and/or leakage.

  • Thoroughly inspect the boards. Brown discoloration around Diode D102 is evidence of a short circuit, possible blown component.

  • Disconnect all connectors from the power board

    • Remove the four screws that mount the power board to the chassis.

These are the chassis with the power board removed. Discoloration of the back side of the power board is a sign of a faulty diode. Unsolder the diode from the power board.

Here is the removed diode. Description on the diode reads LT526 IN4007. Solder the new diode onto the power board. Use a pair of tweezers or hemostat to hold the diode in place while soldering. Once the diode is replaced, clean the board with isopropyl alcohol to get rid of any debris or old flux.
