DLP chip - Rory on October 21st, 2016

Well after looking at my Mitsubishi DLP 60" getting more and more white dots it was time to tear into it. This TV is really easy to service just 3 screws hold the unit in. Took me about 45 mins to replace the chip minus the other 30 minutes cleaning.

Diagnosed and fixed my 55" Vizio TV (less than 2 years old) - Jamahl on October 21st, 2016

My TV's LED backlights quit working. I read similar stories here (and did the flashlight test) to confirm the diagnosis. I ordered the full 4-board repair kit, replaced the power board and LED driver board and good as new. Surprisingly easy. Great videos!

Advice for the mostly confident - Mike on October 20th, 2016

Watch more than one how-to video; you WILL watch again during repair. Have a vaccuum cleaner wand ready. Dust traps heat; heat kills electronics; remove the dust. Get the installation kit; neither the thermal pad nor the grounding strap is optional.
