Re-using Smart TV board from dead TV to make another TV smarter... Answered
I have just bought LG 47GA6400 TV but I damaged LCD screen (CRD31092201) when I was assembling it.
I couldn't find low cost LCD to replace and I started wondering how I can reuse any remaining parts of this TV.
Actually there are many people like me wondering what to do with dead Smart TV.
Few years ago you would receive a standard advice – throw it away.
But today Smart TV parts are powerful and with your help might be re-used again...
Here is an example:
My LG TV has mainboard with dual core CPU, Google TV inside and cool remote controller with QWERTY keyboard and tons of applications....
I wish I could reuse it with other, not so smart LCD TV I have.
The only problem, how to connect Smart TV mainboard to a HDMI.
It doesn't have HDMI out, it has only input ports and one LCD interface cable....
Is it a crazy idea to convert LCD interface back to HDMI or VGA ?
Can you create an instructables to show how to do that ?
