Emerson 32" LCD HDTV LC320EM82 Inverter Board Repair

Here is another short "HOW TO" LCD repair video. The model in this video is an Emerson 32" LCD HDTV model LC320EM82 . The TV would turn on for a second and then shut right back down. I found this one on craigslist for $40, did a little research, and found that it had a very common problem with a pretty easy fix. From what i gathered in the forums this is a pretty popular TV. I know my wife and I had thought about buying one a couple years back because the price was so cheap. REMEMBER, i have NO background in TV repair! A trained money could do this. Below is a link to the part you will need. This repair also works on SYLVANIA 32" LCD as well. PLEASE RATE, COMMENT, and SUBSCRIBE!

I just kept saying billy, billy, Billy, BILLY..............PACHING

Author BDPr0ductions (12 hours)
So, $60 for a board likely to only last another year, and is only 1366x768?

No thank you.

Doesn't make sense to pay that much for 12 months of NOT being full HD. I
have better luck in pawn shops. (Only stick to Samsung 500 series or
better, or smart versions of Vizio with good ratings)

I suppose if you don't have the ability to drive through a few towns and
find one where some poor Sob pawned a gift from their rich relative while
it was not even 6 months from manufacture, maybe you might consider trying
to repair a set like the one shown here.

I just picked up a similar set free, except the button panel is on the
right viewed from the front. Has same problem.

Will sell it to you for $20 if you want to fix it and use or sell it
working fully.

Same exact symptom.

Located in Guymon, OK if you are close enough to pick it up, but also
travel to Las Vegas, NV and SLC, UT a few times a year for work.

Thanks for posting the easy, but not cheap fix...

I have an emerson tv, and last night me and a friend were playing GTA. The
TV just turned off. But it went off and will not turn back on . And the
little red light at the bottom is no longer there. I've plugged the tv into
grounded outlets that other electronics work in just fine, but It won't
turn back on?? What can I do with this? My brother bought it for me for
christmas a couple of years back, but I know they wouldn't have a receipt.
Is there anything I can do, can I even take it back. Can I call the company
and tell them their product just quit on me.

I have an Emerson LC320EM2F. While setting on the floor to dust off the
shelf the vacuum fell over and the handle hit the screen leaving a scuff
mark. Now when it is plugged in the red power light comes. When I push
the power button the red light flashes a couple of times but that is all.
Any ideas?

Thank You very much for the video, my aunt gave me this model when it went
out and she was going to trash it so I said I would store it until I could
get around to trying to figure it out. Received my inverter in the mail
today, purchased from sears, paid a little more ($115.00) but I could not
have purchased a tv for that price. It works great hooked it up in bedroom
tonight and am loving it. Thanks Again.

If not the inverterboard then what could be the problem? Thanks Norman

Do you know how to repair defective sound boards? Im getting a similar 35

good. I think its emerson brand ill know when i get it forgot what ad said
lol im suspecting bad caps but if not im wondering if i can bypass the
sound and just use a home theater for audio as most never use those chincy
speakers lol

Author meex88hiphop (1 year)
if you open the tv you will see leaked or bulged capacitors on the power
board. if none of them look faulty, which is most unlikely, then take a
soldering iron, turn on the tv n let it turn off by itself, then heat up
the capacitors with the tip of you soldering iron, or take a hair dryer and
try to focus on a specific capacitor. when tv turns on you will know which
capacitor is dead. (one you heated last)

What a great instructional video! I don't even HAVE an Emerson, I got a
Viewsonic 4:3, 21.3 inch. Upon power-up, screen stays on for about 1 sec.
Using this video I was able to take the Viewsonic's back off, locate and
remove the faulty inversion board. Now all I have to do is order the
correct replacement board and I should be in business. These monitors were
like $800~$1000 in their day, used by professionals, often multiple units.
I'll post again after the part is replaced.Fingers crossed

Author o2daR919 (4 years)
Thanx sooo much. I just had my Emerson 37" go out after 3 yrs and i read
alot about how it was probably the inverter board but no one showed what it
is or how to replace one! You saved me some money and i really appreciate

@jkitko I heard a few people had some success finding a board on Amazon.

Author cal22583 (4 years)
@dennistredden it really depends on what kind of video output you have on
your laptop. if you have s-video, hdmi, or dvi out then you can get any of
those cable at walmart. if all you have is vga out then check your tv to
see if it has a vga input. hope this helps. thanks for posting!

@bdawg394 I repaired a TV at work with the same problem. It was a 42" LG
LCD. It ended up being a bad video board. quick and easy fix for that
brand. Not sure how easy it would be for a smaller monitor like that, or
how hard the parts are to find. I get most my parts off eBay. I wouldnt
spend to much considering you can find a new 22" on newegg for about $140.
hope this helps!

Author cal22583 (5 years)
yeah...or sell it at cost to family or friends.

direction and maybe i can get rid of my cable bill. thanks dennis
