Hi All, I hope someone can point me in the right direction!
I offered to help a friend repair his LG 42LB650V 3D TV; it powers ON, the red light at the bottom of the screen comes ON, then it flashes a few times on pressing any channel on the remote and that's it. (I think the TV then switches OFF). NOTHING is ever displayed on the Screen and my friend assures me that the screen is working (& has not been bashed or broken).
I managed to get a 'broken screen' TV (again Model 42LB650V) and replaced the Power Board - no joy (behaves as before).
I wanted to then replace the Main Board BUT found out that the two TVs (despite having the same Model Number 42LB650V) differ!:
My friend's TV (the one I'd like to repair) Main Board has Markings: EAX65384004 (1.5) & EBT63439306.
The 'Broken Screen' TV has Main Board Markings: EAX65384003 (1.2), I think the other Part Number is EBT62383444.
The Two Main Connectors on the Main Boards are different!
I continue to try and find a cheap Main Board for sale but to date have not succeeded - I have found some for £75 - 100) but hope there is a cheaper option and I continue to search!
In the meantime I wonder if there is another workaround - i.e. is there a way that I can utilise the working screen TV but replace other parts (Main Board + Others) from the Broken Screen TV? Or, are the Screens also different and so my only option is to purchase an expensive Main Board?
If so, am I constrained to searching for that exact Main Board (eg. EAX65384004 (1.5) & EBT63439306) or are there additional boards that are compatible?
I hope someone can please advise me?

LG SIGNATURE OLED T 4K Marks the Beginning of an
Exciting New Chapter in LG’s Ongoing Legacy of TV Innovation
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling the world’s first wireless transparent OLED TV at CES 2024. The LG SIGNATURE OLED T is a true technological marvel, combining a transparent 4K OLED screen and LG’s wireless video and audio transmission technology to transform the screen experience in ways that have never been possible before. The OLED T unlocks a world of near-limitless potential, giving users the unprecedented freedom to meticulously curate their living spaces. This is complemented by the class-leading picture quality and performance of LG OLED, powered by the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor. A genuine game changer, LG’s transparent OLED is the winner of five CES 2024 Innovation Awards, including a Best of Innovation honor.
LG SIGNATURE OLED T liberates users from a dominant black screen that competes with the décor in their home. Maintaining its 77-inch screen size, OLED T and its innovative transparent display seamlessly harmonizes with its environment. Practically invisible when turned off, it blends into the environment and frees users from the long-standing problem of what to do with the ‘big black screen.’ The TV’s beautiful see-through screen also helps to make one’s space feel larger, providing a sense of openness.
The unique LG OLED T brings with it many new possibilities, from where it can be placed in the room, to the kinds of user experiences that LG can now deliver.
Its transparent OLED screen removes the usual constraints that come with conventional TVs. No longer does the TV have to be placed against the wall. Instead, users can place the OLED T in the middle of the room to become a divider or prop it against the window without blocking the view outside. The included Zero Connect Box, which leverages LG’s cutting-edge wireless transmission technology to send 4K images and sound to the OLED T, also enables users to place their TV anywhere, regardless of where the electrical outlets are located in the room. With no cables between the Zero Connect Box and the OLED T, users can enjoy a clean, cable-free viewing environment.
What’s more, the modular design of the LG OLED T facilitates diverse installation methods. The OLED T comes in stand-alone, against-the-wall or wall-mount options. Customers can further customize by adding standing or floating shelves on either or both sides of the screen to best suit their unique tastes and preferences.
LG’s transparent OLED lets owners discover new forms of entertainment and use via its dual viewing experiences: transparent and opaque. The OLED T becomes a transparent digital canvas for showcasing artwork, videos or photos with the Always-On-Display (AOD) feature. Content displayed on the transparent screen appears to float in air, yet simultaneously fuses with the surrounding space to create a compelling and atmospheric visual effect. Another option is the T-Bar feature that offers a helpful info-ticker running along the lower part of the screen. The T-Bar displays news alerts, weather updates or the title of songs being played while the rest of the screen presents a clear, unobstructed view of the space behind it.
For viewing in picture perfect OLED, simply click a button to raise the contrast screen. In this way, users can instantly switch to take full advantage of LG OLED’s enhanced picture quality through the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor with 4-times greater AI performance. This provides a 70 percent improvement in graphic performance and a 30 percent faster processing speed compared to its predecessor. OLED T offers the best of both transparent and vibrant-color screen experiences with just a click of a button.
“An incredible feat of consumer-driven innovation, LG SIGNATURE OLED T offers brand-new screen experiences plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom to curate their living spaces, completely redefining what’s possible and pointing the way to an exciting future for the television industry.”
The stunning LG SIGNATURE OLED T will be on show during CES 2024 from January 9-12 at the company’s booth (#16008, Las Vegas Convention Center). For more information on LG products unveiled at CES 2024, please visit
