Samsung F2380 - Backlight still turning off after changing inverter
I have the common problem, where the backlight of the PC monitor is turning off, after setting the brightness above a certain value. Mine was around 65. The monitor just turns off the lights and I have to press the power button to turn it off and on again.
After opening the case, I saw that one resistor was burnt and I changed it. The monitor then, didn’t turn off even after setting it to 100 brightness BUT the inverter started burning and fuming. So I bought another inverter and replaced it. The monitor now turns off again after setting it to 65-70 brightness.
What exactly is going on here? The monitor also seems to be a little brighter on the right side of the screen.
Hello @oldturkey03! These are the pictures!
This picture shows the top view onto the power board (?). It has the new resistor and the new inverter.
The inverter was a TM-07165 before and now is the TM-10160.
The new invertes’s resistances are 980 ohm and 984 ohm on secondary and 0.03 ohm on primary. Measuring the resistances of my old one are the same (except for the one side that has the burnt coils.. thats dead).
The resistor R301 is a 386kOhm 0.5W (not sure if enough watts) resistor I got from other threads on the internet. The old resistor was not distinguishable.
Edit: My soldering is not the best right now, because I was scared messing up with the other soldering points around the small double pins of the inverter. Will correct that
