We were given a Samsung TV 50 inch for parts only. They said a repair shop told them the TV needed a new brain. Their cost of course was high but she found the part online for under $30. So, what is the brain of such a flat screen TV - it's name. Model UN50H5201 if we might find a photo of the inside of the unit. Thanks.

That doesn't seem to be an actual Samsung model number?

I gave the type number by mistake. Sorry.

The box says NU6900.

That being said, I think the "brain" would normally be referred to as the "main board".  Some manufacturers may have a different name they use, but that's the general term.

The previous owner said the new brain was under $30. I would guess a main board would cost more. So it is likely a junker.

Yes, main board looks like more like $300.
