Here we will talk about the necessary tools that are required to repair LCD/LED and Plasma TVs. If you are a beginner or new in this field and you don’t have expensive and professional tools, don’t worry you can start with these basic tools to repair TVs.
1. Digital Multimeter
Digital Meter used To measure the Voltages on the circuit
A Digital Multimeter with Good quality is very necessary and actually required for TV repair, you can’t repair without this. So find a good Digital multimeter according to your budget. A digital multimeter is used to measure voltages on the circuit.
Digital multimeters are measuring instruments that can measure quantities such as voltage, current, and resistance. Measured values are shown on a digital display, allowing them to be read easily and directly
2. SMD Rework Station
A surface Mount Device (SMD) rework station is also known and referred to as a hot air blower. They are used for soldering and de-soldering of integrated circuit (IC) parts or chips and Ball Grid Array (BGA). It is also used to repair mobile phones and Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)
3. Backlight Tester
There are two types of backlight testers. One is CCFL LCD backlight tester and another is LED backlight tester. It is used to test backlight whether it’s working or not. You can search more about backlight testers on the internet
4. Bios Programmer
Bios programmers like RT809F and RT809H are used to Install/Update the Firmware on LCD LED TVs. If your TV showing the symptom of Firmware failure then we use RT809F or H programmer to Install the new Firmware, so after that, the TV works fine
5. Digital Microscope
A Digital Microscope is used to identify the burning issues on the circuit, to see the numbering on small SMD components, to see the object from the microscopic level. With the help of a Digital Microscope, we can easily trace the track on the circuits. It is also very useful for TV Screen Panel repair. The basic function of this tool is to see the object on the large display, which object we can’t see with the normal naked eye.
