UN58H5202AF No Backlight Doesn’t Turn On

There are a few posts on this model which uses power supply BN44-00787A on Badcaps and a youtube video pointing to Q9101 Q9101C as the culprit. Part is 50R380 (N-Channel, 500V, 14A) Digikey IPD50R380CEAUMA1CT-ND. This transistor fails due to shorted LED backlights. If you just replace the transistor without replacing the LED strips, the transistor will likely fail again. It is recommended to keep the backlight level between 10-14 and never run it at maximum 20.

Update – I have encountered power supplies with a darkened area above Q9102 Q9102C. This part can also short due to bad backlights. The FET is a AOD 5N40 (N-CH, 400V, 5A).
