Question about Samsung TXJ2879 28" TV

2 Answers

Having trouble with my Samsung television can you help please?

Hi model no is CW-683CNG I have had the set for about four years and had no trouble whatsoever. However about three weeks ago the screen picture was not so clear and it had a red haze to it. It soon rectified itself but now is a constant fixture. Is it worth repairing or is it time to replace it? Many thanks Nik (vintage)

Sorry silly girl seen this a hundred times!! The crt socket on the set needs to be carefully taken off and cleaned with wd-40 or tuner wash. its an intermittant connection on the screen contacts and the contacts that bias the grids.. It can be a green haze a blue haze or a red haze. Very common on 3 to 5 year old samsung tvs. Good Luck

Were there any changes lately in the proximity of the set? specifically any electric devices moved? speakers? the symptoms - red haze appearing, then fixing itself- sounds like a degaussing problem, usually caused by an external magnetic field. To help the TV degauss itself you should turn it off(not to stand by) then on a few times. let it rest over night(plug it out). If theres any change, then you're probably seeing degaussing effects. If it helped but isn't perfect, you could get a tech to come over and work on it for around 50$. Good luck

Do you get any indication of power to the unit? Mine didn't.. the light next to the power button didn't come on. Turned out it was just a fuse inside the unit. So, take it in for repair and hopefully its a simple fix.

The picture on your TV is created by an electron gun firing at the phosphor coating on the screen. The position of the guns beam is controlled by magnetic coils, which are driven by scan circuitry.

Normally, the gun scans left to right, top to bottom to create each single frame of the moving image.

From what you are saying, it sounds like there is a fault in the vertical control system somewhere - basically the gun is going left to right but not up and down, resulting in your picture being squashing down to one row high!

It is unlikely to be a fault with the magnetic coils. My guess would be a faulty resistor that is breaking down (and changing its value) as it gets hot.

It should be a relatively easy to fix, but given the age/value of the TV it might be worth considering a replacement.

SOURCE: We have a Samsung 27" Dynaflat HD that won't turn on.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The question will be, is the part still available? Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $150 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that most TVs that old have a very limited number of replacement parts still available. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I have a GE universal remote and none of the apex codes worked on my Apex LCD TC model LD4088


Hello there blondie1091 and a warm welcome to FixYa. I see your having trouble getting your APEX codes to work. Sometimes depending on the remote they either accept three or four digit numbers. Let me give this code to you just in case you don't have the right one. Please see below.

Apex LCD LD4088 Television

Four Digit Code
0156

Three Digit Variation
156

Give both of these a go and hopefully you'll be all sorted out. I hope you found this information helpful and good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.

What is the initial setting tor air/ fuel mix.?


Check the air cleaner, muffler, and fuel filter for any plugging. Check the fuel lines for condition. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If all are ok, then set the L needle CW to it's stop (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then turn the needle CW until the engine runs fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!
