If you intend to replace any of the boards within your LCD or Plasma TV then you will need to obtain the correct part number of the faulty board and ensure that you have the actual TV part (or a photo of the TV part) to hand so that you can compare the connections with the item you intend to purchase.
It is not enough to simply contact us with the LCD TV model number.
It is worth noting that some of the generic boards’ share the same part number but may have slight differences depending on the model of TV it was produced for.
So how do you work out which one of the many numbers displayed around the board is the correct part number? As a rule of thumb you should always look for a number printed on the board itself rather than a sticker on the TV tuner or other component.
To help you locate the correct part number it’s useful to know what format they are likely to appear.
Samsung PSU and AV board part numbers usually start with a “BN” number.
LG commonly use LAX & EAX numbers.
Sony parts generally start with 1- followed by a bank of 3, 3 and 2 numbers.
Panasonic usually begin with a TNP number.
Toshiba parts can begin with V28.
Phillips part numbers are commonly made up of a bank of 4 numbers followed by 3 numbers and then 5.
More generic Vestel boards found in many brands typically start with 17PW or 17MB.
Be aware that part numbers can sometimes be obscured by a sticker or glue.
If you have any doubt simply search our eBay shop for something like “Samsung PSU” and see what format the part numbers in our listings tend to follow.
