Attention: This service manual is only for service personnel to take reference with. Before
servicing please read the following points carefully.

Safety instructions
1. Instructions
Be sure to switch off the power supply before replacing or welding any components or
inserting/plugging in connection wire Anti static measures to be taken (throughout the entire
production process!):
a) Do not touch here and there by hand at will;
b) Be sure to use anti static electric iron;
c) It's a must for the welder to wear anti static gloves.
Please refer to the detailed list before replacing components that have special safety requirements.
Do not change the specs and type at will.

2. Points for attention in servicing of LCD
2.1 Screens are different from one model to another and therefore not interchangeable. Be sure to
use the screen of the original model for replacement.
2.2 The operation voltage of LCD screen is 700-825V. Be sure to take proper measures in
protecting yourself and the machine when testing the system in the course of normal operation or
right after the power is switched off. Please do not touch the circuit or the metal part of the module
that is in operation mode. Relevant operation is possible only one minute after the power is
switched off.
2.3 Do not use any adapter that is not identical with the TV set. Otherwise it will cause fire or
damage to the set.
2.4 Never operate the set or do any installation work in bad environment such as wet bathroom,
laundry, kitchen, or nearby fire source, heating equipment and devices or exposure to sunlight etc.
Otherwise bad effect will result.
2.5 If any foreign substance such as water, liquid, metal slices or other matters happens to fall into
the module, be sure to cut the power off immediately and do not move anything on the module lest it
should cause fire or electric shock due to contact with the high voltage or short circuit.
2.6 Should there be smoke, abnormal smell or sound from the module, please shut the power off at
once. Likewise, if the screen is not working after the power is on or in the course of operation, the
power must be cut off immediately and no more operation is allowed under the same condition.
2.7 Do not pull out or plug in the connection wire when the module is in operation or just after the
power is off because in this case relatively high voltage still remains in the capacitor of the driving
circuit. Please wait at least one minute before the pulling out or plugging in the connection wire.
2.8 When operating or installing LCD please don't subject the LCD components to bending, twisting
or extrusion, collision lest mishap should result.
2.9 As most of the circuitry in LCD TV set is composed of CMOS integrated circuits, it's necessary
to pay attention to anti statics. Before servicing LCD TV make sure to take anti static measure and
ensure full grounding for all the parts that have to be grounded.
2.10 There are lots of connection wires between parts behind the LCD screen. When servicing or
moving the set please take care not to touch or scratch them. Once they are damaged the screen

would be unable to work and no way to get it repaired.
2.11 Special care must be taken in transporting or handling it. Exquisite shock vibration may lead to
breakage of screen glass or damage to driving circuit. Therefore it must be packed in a strong case
before the transportation or handling.
2.12 For the storage make sure to put it in a place where the environment can be controlled so as to
prevent the temperature and humidity from exceeding the limits as specified in the manual. For
prolonged storage, it is necessary to house it in an anti-moisture bag and put them altogether in one
place. The ambient conditions are tabulated as follows:
Temperature Scope for operation 0 ~ +50 oC
Scope for storage -20 ~ +60 oC
humidity Scope for operation 20% ~ 85%
Scope for storage 10% ~ 90%
2.13 Display of a fixed picture for a long time may result in appearance of picture residue on the
screen, as commonly called "ghost shadow". The extent of the residual picture varies with the
maker of LCD screen. This phenomenon doesn't represent failure. This "ghost shadow" may remain
in the picture for a period of time (several minutes). But when operating it please avoid displaying
still picture in high brightness for a long time.

3. Points for attention during installation
3.1 The front panel of LCD screen is of glass. When installing it please make sure to put it in place.
3.2 For service or installation it's necessary to use specified screw lest it should damage the screen.
3.3 Be sure to take anti dust measures. Any foreign substance that happens to fall down between
the screen and the glass will affect the receiving and viewing effect
3.4 When dismantling or mounting the protective partition plate that is used for anti vibration and
insulation please take care to keep it in intactness so as to avoid hidden trouble.
3.5 Be sure to protect the cabinet from damage or scratch during service, dismantling or mounting.

and it's OK just switch it on again.
Note: Do not shut the power off or turn the TV set on during the FLASH write. Otherwise it
may lead to no way for flash to rewrite.

LC-32K5 working principle analysis
Please refer to LC-32K5 BLOCK DIAGRAM in order to know the working principle of LC-32K5 brief
introduction to its signal flow is shown as follows:

RF signal produces composite color television signal through TUNER201, the signal together with
AV1/SVHS(SVHS priority) and AV2 etc. are sent to U29 VPC3230D to decode and do switching
selection. In addition to decode the selected video signal, part of the selected video signal is also
sent to AV terminal and 21 line decoder U32 Z86229 which is exclusive to decode CCD/V-CHIP to
decode. After decoded by U32, the signal will be sent back to U29 in the form of R G B and FB, then
it will be added to the decoded picture and then it will be sent to U13 FL12310 in the form of
ITU-R656 signal format of 8BIT to do line-by-line process.

Send two ways YPRPB signal to U30 MST9883 through selection by N2 PI5V330 in order to do the
A/D conversion. After this, the signal will be converted into YUV signal of 24BIT, send it to FLI2310

After a series of procedure such as matrix, chroma and tint etc. by FL12310, the two ways signal will
be converted into RGB of 24bit, then send it to the main processing chip U12 JAG-ASM. send RGB
signal it to the main processing chip U12 at the same time. There has another signal which should
be sent to U12 together with he above two kinds of signal that is: RGB signal of 24BIT produced by
DV1 through U15 TFP403/501. Do the picture format processing for the three kinds of signal in U12.
Firstly do the A/D conversion for RGB signal of VGA, then do the switching selection together with
the other two kinds of signal. And then they will be converted into 1024*768 format through digital
display processing such as OSD and GAMMA correction etc. output it in the form of 24BIT RGB
signal. Send it to LVDS convertor U31 DS90C383A, then it will be converted into signal format
which can be accepted by LCD screen namely 3 low-voltage differential signal and 1 clock signal,
finally send it to LCD screen to do the picture display PWM of U12 can also be used to control the
brightness of back light-source.

Send SIF (the second IF) outputted by tuner to audio processor N201 MSP3420; send YPRPB and
audio signal of DVI to N201 through switching selection by U34 HEF4052; Send AV1/SVHS, AV2
and audio signal of VGA to N201 also. Firstly SIF will be done the switching selection together with
another four ways of audio signal, finally volume control and sound effect processing will be done.
Output left-right sound channel signal R/L. one will be sent to SRS sound field processor N203
M62494 to do SRS processing and finally amplified by N213 and N214 MP7720 to drive the speaker,
one will be used to drive the headphone through N212 TLE2142 and the last part will be outputted
as R/L of AV OUT.
