Broken LG LCD TV Capacitor Black Screen My Wont Turn On




What do you think about this video?

David Diamond: Thank you so much. Now I know what is wrong with my expensive Samsung. There was a single loud "crack" sound and the screen was instantly black. I have a temporary small TV, and when I have time on my hands, I will tackle the capacitors on my big Samsung.

viC Bangamwabo: lol.. the excitement at 5:25 on wards. nice work man.

Keithandra Hillsbery: so now i have picture on my tv but now i have no sound when i turn it on any suggestions on how to fix that 

OLAYIWOLA Olatunde: I am grateful for the picture of the LG that I am seeing because it is exactly 47 inches that I am using. The problem I am having with it is that, the screen got cracked at the right upper corner when something dropped on it. Where can I get the screen and how much can I get it or where can I bring it for fixing and the price. Thanks.

Luke Barnard: WHERE CAN I BUY THESE CAPACITORS FROM? ANY TV STORE, ONLINE OR BOTH? How much are they, what voltage, etc, for same sized TV? Some reply please.

Marbin Pena: You're the best men thanks

slearwig: Remove and Replace each capacitor One At A Time and Take Special Notice of The Polarity of Each Capacitor (the + and - signs on the cans). You really want to insert each new capacitor with the same polarity. These are Electrolytic Capacitors and they are polar just exactly like Batteries. If you insert the new capacitor backwards, expect to blow it up and damage more of the t.v. Very Important to maintain the correct polarity when inserting the new capacitor into the circuit board. You should Always NEVER open the set before unplugging it from the wall. And make sure to short the old capacitor on the board to discharge it. USE AN INSULATED WIRE. DO NOT TOUCH THE METAL CONNECTOR WIRES (the leads) OR THE DISCHARGING WIRE WHILE DOING SO. Capacitors store electricity, and the larger the capacitor, the higher the voltage (electricity) that it stores. TIP: When desoldering the old capacitor connections to the circuit board, it is much easier to use Desoldering Wick. You apply the wick between the hot soldering iron and the solder on the board. The wick soaks up the molten solder and leaves the capacitor leads clean and easy to remove. Then when soldering the new capacitor's leads to the board, do it as quickly and carefully as possible. Holding the soldering iron on the circuit board too long can destroy the connection point on the board. The copper etching can burn off.

TheJeepinDad: Thanks bro! 

Camilo Ignacio Jorquera Rivas: Thank´s man, your work has helped me a lot.;D (y)

Robin Reid: Thanks for the video. I replaced 5 capacitors on my father's television following your instructions and it did the trick. My father was very pleased. The cost was about $6, including the solder. Very good of you to share your knowledge.

newbcake88: You sound like Vin Diesel. 

tylerse7en: YOU DA MAN! Having zero experience with soldering and working on electronics myself, I followed your tutorial to fix my blown LG and it's all good now!

only1kleigh: Thanks for the video share. Awesome you fixed your own tv and saved all that $$$!

Adam Rodgers: i read something online about discharging bad capacitors as they can kill?? does this apply to these capacitors too?

Hommyful: You the men bro...I got a Toshiba that just recently stoped working it wont turn on I checked the capasitors only (1) looks like that, but it isn't as bad PLUS I don't have the blinking light could it be something else 

Mattl Port: Good job, I have the lg du-42 exact same problem. Thanks for mentioning Radio Shack. I thought I was good to have to order online. 

William Hays: I've got a 37" very similar to yours and I feel that mine has suffered the same fate. I am going to check it today and then order the necessary capacitors and soldering iron/solder if that is what it needs. Thanks for the video and giving me hope that I can fix mine too.

Chattar Singh: please give any solution

Loz Blake: This wasn't whats caused the problems on mine, but this video was very helpful in letting me check that my caps were ok (they look fine to my untrained eye), glad you got yours working, I'll continue trying to figure out whats wrong with mine!

szkola windsor: OH, that is a great hack...loving your reaction man ! Nice vid :)

Chattar Singh: & audio still working with blank screen

Marco Galicia: U know how can I replace the screen on my tv ????

Chattar Singh: but no any solution it's still working for few seconds

cynthiam1000: we have 2 LG's that are doing the same thing! Thanks to this video we may just save money..Great video. I'll let you know if it works!

Chattar Singh: i have changed all capacitors of power supply

Chattar Singh: it's a samsung lcd tv 20''

Chattar Singh: Why does my tv screen go blank a few minutes after being turned on? Also,why when I push the power button on the set the power sometimes just tv display then goes blank again

flimsy47: Good video! Question: I see the capacitors bubbled out, but light does not blink nor turn on at all. Should i continue with changing the capacitors only, or may there be some fuses blown out? Thanks.

Paul Harris: This man knows everything...or is he God?

BERNARD B: great!!! Thanks for thr info(",)

FixItUrselfDummy: hope all goes well. keep me posted.

DaAlzki7852: My LG Tv has the same problem, but it turns on after about 15 - 30 min at times it takes hours lol, that is what has been keeping me from taking it apart. Did you find out the capacitors you needed just by taking it apart, taking them off and comparing them at the store? Did you obtain the specs somewhere?

govoni1: Video is so shaky that it is hard to follow.

KBHLL Broomy: Hi will this work with my lg 37lc2b tv?

FixItUrselfDummy: thats an awesome story man! glad it worked. thanks for watching.

FixItUrselfDummy: your welcome. i love hearing stories of people choosing to fix things themselves. Moving to a new home isn't cheap and you've saved some good bucks by doing it yourself. thanks for watching.

ChristopherJamesMuse: Worked like a charm!!! TV is fixed for under 6 bucks! Thanks big time man! You saved me a ton from having to buy a new TV. Cheers!

Shawn Collins: "Holy crap balls" I'm going to have to try this myself. My TV comes on after we turn it on and off a few times. It "warms up" then works fine. Just annoying... so I'm going to look at this fix this weekend. Thanks!

isabelle IZE: lol i was thinking i know youre not crazy to put the video on youtube if it dont work lol

Chela Maynard: Thank you so much for your video!! my LG 32lc2du started acting up and I consider throwing it out and buying a new tv, but after watching your video I took my tv apart and saw that one of the capacitors went bad, I went to radio shack and bought a soldering tool set ($10.99 +tax)went to skycraft parts & surplus, inc. Winterpark, FL and bought a capacitor for ($0.50 +tax) Now my tv is working like new! All for $12.18. THANK YOU :)

Mike Pugl: Useful but irritating background music for the first 3 mins!

MARILU CHAVEZ: Hello my friend, THANKS for your advice, my tv had the same exact problem AND I FIX ITTTTTT, Thank you again for sharing good things...

Karl XZY: Hey what power soldering iron did you need to use? I was gonna get a 25W one but read around and think that might not be hot enough to remove the solder. Might get a 40W version instead but that will cost a bit extra ($19 vs $12 AUD).

Eric Barrow: I hope u don't die either Triple-X. Wait....it's Vin Diesel he's immortal right?

Paul Harris: Okay shared it on 4 websites so far with over 3000 friends and publicly around 500 million people = all of facebook(public post for all to see) all of Google Plus (maybe 100 million people?)

bunkered79: Did the fix after watching the video and now have a working tv again. Cheers

xtian08: from 130$ charge by LG ServiceCentre down to 2 Quarter for 3pcs Caps is a great savings. haha. thanks for the DIY.

rushymoto: Good Job.

Americo Rodriguez: Awesome! !!

Madlookin: got the LG working today...4 new capacitors, 89 pence each...shop wanted £40 just to look at TV....mend inspired by this vid...thanks FixItUrselfDummy

Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
