What is an IC in a TV?

IC stands for “integrated circuit” and it’s a set of electronic circuits on one small, flat piece (or “chip”) of semiconductor material, usually silicon. Large numbers of tiny MOSFETs (”metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors) integrate into the small chip.

Which symptoms does an IC fix in a TV?

Since a lot of symptoms could be the result of a failed or defective IC, please refer to any symptoms listed on this page or contact your local TV technician.
