5. How to Repair Flexible LED Display Module?

Broken Lamp Beads on the Module

(1) Remove the gel around the LEDs with sharp tools such as a tweezer until the pins are clearly exposed. 

(2) Use a tweezer to keep the lamp bead in place, and solder it with soldering iron at temperature around 40°C (too high temperature will damage the LED display) for less than 3 seconds. 

(3) Install the right light beads on the PCB board (the long probe of LED lamp bead is the positive electrode, and the short one is the negative electrode. And the square hole on PCB board is for the positive electrode while the round hole is for the negative electrode). 

(4) Melt down a little solder wire and touch it with the solder tip, then solder the LEDs and PCB board with the solder wire. Finally, seal the LED display with the same type of gel (PH=7).

Color Missing

a. Check the signal cable connection and reconnect, also check the power supply for the first module in the row.

b. Check whether the flat cable is working normal. If any problem, reconnect the cable.

c. Change a LED display module to see whether the color missing phenomenon disappears.

One row displaying color inconsistency

This problem may be caused by the failure of the pins of the driver IC that controls this row.

First, position the corresponding driver IC. You can find it through the circuit diagram, and replace it and drive it.

No displaying on a single LED module

a. Check whether the power supply contact is normal. For instance, whether the power plug is loose or not. 

b. If there is wrong color displaying or color inconsistency but correct pictures, the problem may occur in signal input. Plug out the cable then plug in again, or replace the flat cable. 

If the problem still exists after replacing the flat cable, check whether the interface of the PCB board is working properly.
