How can I test my LCD TV backlight?
As backlight failure is a very common issue, this is the first thing to test. To do so, the easiest way is to power on your screen, put a flashlight very close to it and check if you can see the image through. The image would be very dark, like turning the brightness of the screen very very low.
How do I test an LED without a multimeter?
If you don’t have a multimeter to use, a simple coin cell battery holder with leads will let you know if your LED lights are still working.
How do you test if a LED is working?
Connect the negative lead from the multimeter to the cathode (negative) lead on the LED. The LED should glow dimly, indicating it’s working. If the LED does not light, swap the connection to the LED leads. The LED should now light, if not the LED is faulty.
How do you tell if an LED light is burned out?
If you suddenly smell something generally “burnt” or burnt plastic, try removing the bulb and letting the area air out.

What is a backlight on a TV?

What kind of backlight does Hisense TV have?
Moving beyond the standard LED backlight in the Hisense U7G, this TV has a mini-LED backlighting system—which offers more local-dimming zones for even better contrast ratios and brighter HDR highlights than on the Hisense—and it produces vibrant colors.
What is the difference between led TV backlight and Mini-LED?
Where a standard LED backlight offers dozens of backlighting zones, mini-LED offers hundreds, and individual mini-LEDs can number in the thousands for a larger TV. More LEDs translate into brighter backlight, for a brighter more vivid picture, as well as smaller lighting zones to reduce haloing.
What is full array backlight with local dimming?
The next refinement for LED backlight is full array backlight with local dimming. This breaks up the backlight array of direct LED lighting, and separates it into multiple zones. These zones each illuminate a portion of the screen, and can be individually brightened or dimmed depending on the content in that section of the display.
