unbrick PS42C435A1WXXE ?

Post by cofpro1 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 5:35 pm

okay so i got a tv from a friend that is bricked he told me he had used some img file from samygo ?
and i wonder if it is possible to unbrick and how

its a plasmatv
model PS42C430
he said that the firmware was T-TDT5DEUC-1018.0 before he bricked it

i read on the wiki that it may be possible to unbrick with exlink cable ?
---------------------------------------

what happens when i try to turn it on is that it ticks (startup tick)
then it double ticks (turn off and on)
and continue like that in a loop

i thought it could be fixed by downloading firmware to usb and hold exit on startup but nope did not work

-----------------------------------------
so could someone tell me more details on unbricking with a exlink cable (like how or some other way of unbricking )
oh and if it is possible to unbrick with a some sort of hhardware flasher then tell me

i dont own any cables now but i will buy then soon
--------------
all help is appreciated

It`s a quite old model and the rooting method he applied probably is described here: viewtopic.php?t=1076&start=250#p53178
Please read topic careful, probably you might find answer.

hi i read the thread but i dont understand much of it sadly.

i asked my friend and he think he used that method .

is it really not possible to unbrick it if it is in a bootloop?
or is it possible with exlink cable ?

i read on some viki page too while i where at it
and it said something about reset some chip on the motherboard
by connecting some wires to it ?
(reminds me reseting bios on a really old pc lol)

or do i have to replace the whole board ?

well like you already may know i dont understand much about tv flashing so little bit more help would be kind

Hello cofpro1. Maybe I will try to hack my LE40C650 in future days. Where did you find that mainboard for only 25 $?

Your mainboard must be more expensive, coz C435 is realy budget line tv w/o smarthub and mediaplayer (iirc). But hope dies the last. right? :)

Sorry, I didn't understand this words: "coz C435 is realy budget line tv w/o smarthub and mediaplayer (iirc)." What does they mean?

Means your tv is with advanced features (of 2011 ofcourse), whether referencing ps42c450 is cheap model with only basic features. And simpler mainboard, which costs less than mainboard for your tv.
