What is 4K
The new 4K technology is now entering living rooms around the world.
• It is double the resolution of 2K technology, or 1920x1080 = 3840x2160.
• All signal is first up scaled to 1920x1080, enhanced, and then scaled to 3840x2160.
• Native signal at 3840x2160 is not up scaled or enhance.

Power Unit Operation
# The power unit is responsible for providing main and back-up power sources, including LED backlight drive.
# UR13 Volts = Unregulated 13 Volts / switched
# S13 Volts = Signal 13 Volts regulated / switched
# BU5 Volts = Back-Up 5 volts / unswitched (always supply)
# 12 Volts PNL= Panel Power 12 Volts / switched
Main Unit Operation
The main PWB is responsible for the following operations:
#HDMI Input Switching & Processing.
#HDMI 1 (*ARC) HDMI 4 (**MHL)
#Component and Composite Input terminals.
#USB Input Terminals
#A/V Switching.
#Analog, Cable and Digital Tuning (ATSC/QAM).
#Analog & Digital Audio Processing (SIF & SAP).
#Optical Digital Audio Output.
#CPU, EEPROM, & RS232 Operations.
#CAT 5 Internet connection.
#Audio Amplifier.
* Audio Return Channel
** Mobile High Definition Link (for charging mobile devices.)
The Monitor/Sub Micon section is responsible for power supply and power detection.
# U+5V
# D+5V
# D+3.3V
# D+1.5V
# D+1.2V
# BU+3.3V
# Backlight error detection
# 12V panel power detection
U+5V and UR+13V from the power unit is applied to the main PWB to start up the set.
LED Drive Operation
# The LED drive unit is responsible for providingLED drive voltage for the edge lit display.

DRC/FRC/TCON Operation
# DRC: Dynamic Range Compression Receives LVDS from Main PWB which was converted to 2k when content is at a lower resolution then 1080.
# DRC enhances image before converting to 4K.
# 4 K resolution = 3,840 x 2,160, which is double from 1920x1080.
# DRC adds 3 pixels for every single pixel with 1080 I/P video sources.
# FRC converts the 60hz LVDS to 120Hz.
# 4 LCD drive signals lines directly output the LCD controller at 210MHz PPDS format, which drives the 10bit LCD panel.
Main Unit Removal
# Remove 8 cables
# Remove 8 chrome screws (red)
# Lift off Terminal Angle Side and Terminal Angle Bottom, lift out Main PWB.
# Please Note: At the time of publication, this model does not use MDL files for Main Unit set-up.

Flashing Power / Timer LED
In most of our past models a faulty, loose, or disconnected LVDS cable can lead to errors, such as “Power Icon” 2 slow and 5 fast, or 2 “Power”, 5 “OPC”, etc. However, LC70UD1U will behave in the following manner.
# No error Blink Codes.
# Black screen, no backlights.
# Relay click ~ 15 seconds and set powers down.
# Monitor Error 02 will be stored in the service menu.

Troubleshooting  Flashing Power / Timer LED

Troubleshooting LED Backlight Failure
# If the Power and Timer LED’s indicate lamp errors, try the following troubleshooting methods.
# Force the set on using Ch DOWN Vol UP while plugging in ac power cord.
# If the set turns on, look for backlight illumination.
# If set does not turn on, Remove L1 and L2 independently, and force-on. If unit turns on the LED backlight is most likely at fault.
Note: The set will run for ~ 10 seconds With L1 or L2 disconnected. Then the set will shut down. This will prove a bad LED strip inside the LCD panel.
