Re: powers on but pixels are like distorted

This might be wild but... why dont you get your no good neighbor to turn the plasma in for you? He IS the original owner, and the screen crapped on you a month after purchase, seems like the right thing to do is to ask him to help you out with it. Good luck

Samsung LCD HD TV Model # LN-S4041D > 4 years old - working fine until today - While watching TV, I heard 2 loud beeps and the TV image was lost - initially frozen pixels and some moments later .......

Th clicking is from the power relay. You will have to open it up, the first place to look will be the power supply module, look to see if it has any bad caps with leaking/bulging tops first, caps can look OK but can be bad due to high ESR.

No Picture, cannot power off without unplugging, flashing green light

The part is Replace an X-tal (Viper) on SSB item 1H00, order code: 242254301397. The small small signal board is the one with the video jack on it. It mat be easyer to replace the SSB but yes it will cost more.
