Mainboard replace: c530/550 and c630 TO c650/c679, get PVR !

Post by bege » Sun Sep 23, 2012 8:12 am

Hello board,

is it possible to put a mainboard from LExxC679 into a LExxC630 ?
Is the powersupply of the C630 capable to handle the C679 board (does it deliver all required voltages and amperage) ?

Thanks for answering !

Hello juuso,

thnaks for the quick answer.

I was just a little anxious because C679 has an additional SAT tuner and C630 does not.

No problem. To be sure you have just compare connectors. All connectors are identical. Power suply is ok too.
I know guy who upgraded his c630 with
http://www.ebay.ie/itm/SAMSUNG-BN94-034 ... 3373324128
and this is almost same you`re asking...

Same here:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4556&p=35220#p35220

just if you use mainboard from LED, you jave to change backpanel, or keep TV with open backside...

You have got an answer on ixbt.com, but to let all ther users know, i repost it here.

Yes, you can swap your`s C530/550 mainboard to one from c650/679 and become your TV upgraded, but you have to order not only mainboard, but BN96-12723C LVDS Screen Cable (another resource) too (some users said, it is possible to re-make original one from c530/c550, but if you don`t know how, you have to buy this, double-sided connector cable...)

But important thing: you have to rebuild this lvds cable by self (instruction is coming, but not for everyone...). It is not enough just to switch cables.

Just got here while looking for a way to enable the Internet@TV feature on a UExxC6000<...>

That sounds interesting. Is there any documentation on how to do this? Aren't the connectors on a c650 in a different place or can you easily switch the two boards?

You have just to swap mainboards. No problems with connectors and so on.

Wait, are we talking about the same TVs? Changing the mainboard on C6000 with one from a C650? Because when I compare the C630 mainboard to the layout on my set, the connector are on completely different sides:

yes, in your case you need m/b from led tv, eg uexxc6800... For example this one (BN94-03656C - with dvb-s2 tuner on board!). I know guy who confirmed he had success by using this board on his c6000.

p.s. sorry i gave example with c650 by mistake meaning about T-VAL6DEUC generally. Sure, you could use c650 mainboard too, but then you have to change backpanel...
Better to find m/b from > c65xx led model (but 6 series only).

Edit:
You can compare those mainboards and see, here is almost no difference (fits well to old`s m/b place/holes):
UE40C6000 UE32C6500 UE40C6800
Panel size doesn`t matter, all 32-55 inc panels have same T-CON (video) board.

Here is another online store where you can find mainboard to buy from. I also saw few sellers on e-bay who is selling used TV mainboards. It is your choice :)

EDIT2: I forgot already, i`ve posted some report here. ;)
Here is some article on the wiki (currently links to forum topics only) where we`ll collect info about mainboard replacement.
