Question about Samsung LNT3242H Television

Samsung LN-T3242HX LCD TV

Hi welcomejee,

Samsung LN-T3242HX lcd tv. When I first got the tv the screen would play a tone and the screen would flash blue for about one second and then go blank. I took it apart to find that one of the ccfl's had broken inside the screen. I replaced the ccfl today and now it does nothing except the red light flashes in the front. So it did light up for a second with the broken ccfl, but now not at all with the new one installed? The person that had the tv before me cut the ground wire off of the plug that goes to the wall, and when I use a new plug the power seems to be stronger on the board and not as strong with the old cord. I am trying to determine if it is a power supply issue? or if maybe it is the inverter? Can you tell me what to check to find out? If it is the power supply, do I need to buy a new board, or can I replace components? I appreciate any help or directions that you can give me! wow that is alot of questions..lol

Thank you in advance for any help!

    Thanks Welcomejee! I was thinking the same thing about the connector, but was not sure that I wanted to open it up again:) When I soldered the ccfl, I should have checked the connection better! The connections seemed tight? Do you know of any way to test solder joint while not hooked up, before I put it all back together? The one side of the ccfl has a wire attached and the other side connects to a small circuit board. I did check all the boards and connections, and I know they are right because I took pictures on dissasembly :) Thanks again for your help, and let me know if you think of anything else. I will keep you updated to the fix.



    Thanks,

    Well I opened it up again, and resoldered the ccfl where it goes into the board. Still no luck. Does the ccfl actually have to be touching the lead on the board? or would the solder carry the current if was not right up against the lead? I am almost positive that it is making connection on the board, but I am no guru at soldering techniques. Would any of the ccfls light up if that one is not making the connection? Do you know of any way to test the ccfls while they are out of the unit? Thanks for all your help!

Hi Compgeek09
Please check CCFL is hooked in connector properly, all connectors of back light inverter board are plugged correctly, check also other connectors of removed boards while CCFL replaced.
It doesn't seem issue of back light inverter board nor its related to ground wire of power plug to wall because tv was working before replacement of CCFL.

The part number is LTM190M2-L31.I hope this helps.

Screen on my samsung 40 in tv looks cracked, but i can see the picture in background


Your tv is pretty much shot.. LCD tvs are very fragile. You will need to replace the LCD panel. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Samsung LCD Flat Screen TV LN-S2651D - Volume Problem


I lived with it for about six weeks, then took the back off the TV. Just now it seems to be fixed, but I don't know if it will last.

I disconnected the wire leading to the channel up/down, volume up/down and source board, turned on the tv, turned it back off, reconnected the cable, and everything seems fine now.

NO sound on HDMI3 port and when playing Blu-Ray DVD's the screen is pink


Go to the samsung website, and find out how to upgrade the firmware for your TV. You will probably need a portable usb memory stick to do so (if your TV is equipped with one). HDMI is an evolving technology, and firmware upgrades can resolve many of these quirky issues.

Here's a possibility from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/faqs/supportFaqList.do?group=&type=&subtype=&model_nm=LN-S4696D&dType=D&mType=UM&vType=R&prd_ia_cd=02010100&acc_ia_fl=&disp_nm=LN-S4696D
Which Samsung LCD TVs Have The HDMI 1.3 Interface? spacer.gif Of the LN-T series Samsung LCD TVs, those models whose last two digits are 61, 65, 66, 69, 71, or 81 (for example, LN-T4071F or LN-T466F) have the HDMI 1.3 interface.
Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces also have HDMI-CEC (HDMI - Consumer Electronics Control). For information about CEC, click HERE.
For information about individual Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces and HDMI-CEC, click HERE. When the Samsung LCD TV web page appears, select the TV model you want information about by clicking the drop down list under Product Finder on the left side of the page.
Though other series of Samsung LCD TVs (LN-R, LN-S, etc.) have HDMI connections, none have models with the HDMI 1.3 interface.

Sounds like a bad connection on a ribbon cable or plug comming or going to the LCD display. This is something you should not try to fix as these circuits are very very fradgile and you can easily break or tear a ribbon cable . Call the manufacturer to get a tech to assit you. Good Luck
