Question about Samsung LN-S4051D 40 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Audio is fine but no video

I have Samsung LS-S4051D 40 in LCD for little over 1 year old. When I turn it on 7 out of 10 times I only hear audio but no video. The screen is completely dark as if it is powered off. I have to switch on and off several times before I can see the picture. Also sometimes it happens while watching a program.

Any clue?

Thanks.

    I have just experienced the same problem. We've had this TV for a little over a year and while watching a tv show all of a sudden the tv screen went black, we have audio but no video. The black light appears to be on?? Frustrated! You spend thousand of dollars on these upgraded tv's and something like this goes wrong...

    Have had TV just over a year. Watching, then suddenly TV went black. Turned off & on again. Now looks like watching picture negatives. Sound fine, but aweful picture!!! Really irritating to spend $$$$$ on "one of the best" & have this happen so soon!! Planned obsolescence is alive & well...

It is the backlight not lighting up. Your probably need to replace it.  I have the same problem, but have not yet replaced the backlight.

Samsung LN-S4051D slow to turn on.


You are likely to have a module bad....part number BN94-00864A and if you take it out (unpluggs) you should inspect it for capacitors that may be domed or pooched up at the top. If so they should be replaced first before getting the module as the capacitors are about $1.00 each. Do a search for Samsung parts online if you need the module and call them toll free

The sound on my Samsung Int4042H LCD TV went off but the picture stays on. I turn the TV on and off, but the sound is not back.


The audio amplifier from your tv has just died - it happens. You need to open the back cover, locate the amplifying IC, unscrew the radiator from it, unsolder the IC, buy an exact replacement and solder it back.

Samsung 40" flat screen looses sound


this problem started on my LN-S4051D a couple of years ago. eventually the sound stopped working altogether. I then started using my surround sound speakers for the TV via optical out but soon that stopped working as well. I recently took the TV to a repair shop who said that the main board is bad and needs to be replaced. Labor plus parts was going to cost me $400. I said no thanks and paid for the estimate. Good luck.

Forcing audio only signal through component


You cannot get AUDIO from Component Video, as it is only VIDEO, you must get another set of Cables RED & WHITE, and connect them from the AV, AUDIO Jacks, OUT on the "Sender" to the AV AUDIO IN on the TV. So you will have 5 Cables connecting BOTH Video & Audio. The Component Video, uses Blue, Green, & Red, these go color to color on the RCA Jacks at BOTH ends PLUS the Red & White Audio, color to color at BOTH ends. .Hope that clears things up.

Samsung 32 lcd tv backlight off after 4 sec. audio ok


If your TV is staying on and you hear audio after the picture goes dark, then you have a problem with a CCFL or the inverter circuitry that drives them.

Most likely an inverter problem.

Like a bad xformer (usually fogged up plastic wrapper)

Or a bad cap (bulged, swollen, cracked)

Or maybe a shorted IC or transistor (test for short circuit between the different pins of the device)
