I have two tv's both 50"lcd/led flat screens, one has a broken screen(smart tv) and the other (not smart) has bad capcitors/boards. First one is a Hisense 50h5c and the other element elef504. Any thoughts on compatability? Would like to put the smart tv behind the others screen considering it has only been used for one month

Generally a fan of DIY projects and repairs.

If you have nothing to lose by trying the screen swap then may be worth a try. Especially if you have some skills and experience doing such things.

However many of todays' appliances are not designed for repairs per ser . Especially repairs by end-users.

Opening up the TV's may be problematic. Easy to break something while doing so.

Go online and see if you can find any applicable "repair" videos, schematics, etc..

Then compare the connections, fit, etc.. between the good screen and bad screen. If the good screen matches and physically fits (try before connecting) then look at the connectors and plugs. Hopefully all are identical, pin counts, wire colors, components.

If not identical the swap attempt may have unknown results when the TV is plugged in and/or turned on.

However, being only a month old there should be some warranty - correct? Try that first via the vendor/retailer and then the manufacturer.

I have some experience with these tv's.I have had to change boards in one and replace capacitors in another. There is no warranty on the tv since it was a friends who's temper got the best of him and he threw a game controller at it. I agree with you on all accounts with swapping out internals, they both have similar board set ups and backlighting configurations, also the teecon ribbons look right. Your thoughts on the unknow outcome when power is introduced when all is connected is my main concern. I can't really see anything detrimental happening but doesn't hurt to ask for outside input. Gonna give it a try and see what happens .thanks for responding
