Question about Samsung LE40R74BDX 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV won't turn on

I have a Samsung LCD tv. We have been having problems with it for a few weeks now...when we turned the tv on we would have to wait at least 5 minutes for it to come on. The red light would blink and it would click. Today it just blinks and clicks and doesn't turn on at all. We also had a problem with the colour recently...a red colour over a lot of the picture. Sometimes a scene on tv would look like a bloodbath because of this! We've had the tv less than 18 it likely to be a huge repair bill, or worse still a new tv?

You have a back light issue. Sometimes it's cheaper to get another one. Tcon board failure most likely. If you can find a rv repair or electronics repair they might do the work but as you got 5 years from it. Most TV sets fail in less time than that.

Many times the main circuit board becomes defective, especially after a power surge. If you had power fluctuations lately, the board could have become compromised. A shorted board needs replacement. Sometimes the cost of repair becomes greater than purchasing a new system.
