Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

HCl4715w Hi. I'd like to ask you a few questions about my TV as I paid the $15 and got nothing from the Dark Knight or whatever his name was. The TV is a HCL4715W. I bought it needing a power cable. I clipped the cable off a tube TV and used inline connectors to attach. The TV is getting power, clicks, but offers no sound or picture. Is it possible I did damage to the power board? The red LED light comes on and blinks, but still no sound or picture. How can I verify what my problem is? If you could assist me it would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking to find out if the replacement parts are worth purchasing, because I'm not sure of the quality of the picture and the condition of the projectors. Thanks for your time and I appreciate any info you can offer. Ryan

Are there any villains out there that collaborated well with each other? And were there any that were sworn enemies? Or is it all just a free-for-all hate for the dark knight? This really applies to all...

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy often work together. Penguin has somewhat good relationships with other villains. Everybody hates the Joker, though.

About recent question.

Unfortunately, some of the "Experts" here really aren't. Everyone that answers a couple questions is listed as an "Expert" and it doesn't matter if their answers are worthless!
"The Knight" has over 64,000 questions answered, so I question his or her credibility. "The Knight" didn't even bother to warn you that a TV has hazardous voltages even when unplugged. It's usually limited to the power board, but still you should have been warned.

Your problem could have been the T Con board, but it also could be your display or another control board if yours has another. There's also a smaller chance that part of the power supply has gone bad.
Unfortunately, you'll have to get a TV repair shop to check it.

Who's the knight? Is he a pro or a self proclaimed know it all?


My name is Peter. I have often wondered that myself about the Knight and others.

When I answer questions I identify myself. I am a retired field service appliance and refrigeration technician holding both a State of Maryland Contractors License and a Federal EPA Certification for refrigeration.

When you got into this website, you need to check the respondent.

Too often I have gone in to answer questions and found the knight and others, which base on my over 30 years of experience were absolutely wrong and may have cause dangerous situations and viewer excessive expenditures.

The Knight, like others on this web sit can accumulate points by answering a question without knowledge.

I am not at the top of the adviser list like the knight, because if it is not in my area of experience I will not answer a question just to build up points.
I do not care about the points or my ranking. I just like to help people avoid a expensive repair bill by replacing a $12.00 part.

I think the website manager should require the respondent to state their experience in the field prior to answering the question.

I just paid for a chat with janoon got nothing

I saw your chat request, but wasn't able to get to you in time. I generally don't take chats, unless it's specifically in my area. You can request a refund through Fixya. That's no problem at all. They will credit your card back within a few days. If you would like, we can continue and see if we can fix your problem at no charge.

So, all you did was R&R the fan. This should be simple enough. I'm going to venture to say that either the processor isn't seated correctly, or you missed a connector. Tear it back down, pull the processor, blow it out with air, and reseat it. Also check for any connections you may have missed, and reseat the memory. At the initial start, start it without the battery, then reboot with the battery. You did remove the battery when changing the fan, right? Anyway, try this and let me know through the "ask me" tab next to my name.

TV won't power on

Disconnect the convergence board and see if the set comes on. If it does, and it probably will, replace the convergence board or the convergence amp IC's. Good Luck
