Question about Samsung TXR3079 TV

2 Answers

Picture Dies My Samsung TX-R3079 set plays normally for +/- 15 minutes when first turned on. Then the screen goes blank. If turned on again, the process is repeated. A friend suggested that it was likely caused by some faulty thermal protective device in the set and should be relatively inexpensive and easy to repair. Does the set contain such a device? If so, where is it located? where do you suggest I procure such a part and must I have the part number to do so? Thanks your help

Laafink:

I had the same problem with my Samsung TV Model: TXR3079WHX. I troubleshot my problem with a can of component cooler from Radio Shack and found my problem to be a defective voltage regulator, identified as "QR015" on the main circuit board (the same board that contains the high voltage section).

Caution:

Before I proceed any further I need to strongly warn you. Do not attempt to remove the back cover, troubleshoot, repair or perform the actions that I have done, if you are not a "qualified service technician". Removing the back cover exposes you (and anyone else) to harmful and deadly electric shock, even though the TV may be unplugged from the wall outlet and turned off. You (or anyone else) can be seriously injured or even killed. If you are not qualified, play it safe by allowing others who are qualified repair this for you.

The defective part (overheats and shuts your TV off) is voltage regulator manufactured by Fairchild. The part number is KA75450ZTA. This part is available from Mouser Electronics for less than 20 cents plus shipping. In order to replace this part a qualified technician will need to remove certain cables and unscrew the main board to allow access to desolder and solder the new component.

Hope this helps.

That is the power supply defective, the inverter or the main board is overheating.

If this was not overheating test inverter and power board.

Note this model suffers from overheating related problems, but as you pointed out, a faulty power board, or a faulty inverter board can cause the same kind of shutdown.

It seems to be a heat issue. I have had this problem for over a year now. If I turn on a fan and have it blow into the body of the set behind the screen [either side] it solves the problem.

This may not be a permanent solution but it will keep your set running and costs nothing more than a small fan.

You have problems with your power supply filters. I'd suggest you to change the mainfilter, that is the capacitor just after the ac rectifier and the b+ filter, that is the capacitor at the output of the smps, and then vertical filter and video filter. These are all capacitors with higher microfarad ratings, if you are not much comfortable, it's better to get some help from someone who is familiar with these. Pay attention not to reverse the polarity when changing the capacitors.

All symptoms indicate a problem in the vertical circuit,the first thing to look for will be loose conection on the vertical output IC,sometimes this IC goes bad completly and it needs to be replaced.If you are familiar with soldering electronics you can take care of it but if you are not too familiar you can play it safe and take it to a servicer ,it will be a lot less expensive than if they come to your house.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
