Question about Samsung LN52A550 LCD TV

1 Answer

I have the samsung LN52A550. When I turn the tv on a blue screen appears. I tried changing the source with the menu button but does not display anything. The TV is about 2 years old. The sound works. When I try a different input(dvd player) same results(althoug I cannot change ths source because the menu does not display). The dvd is attached via a three cable. The directtv is attached via hdmi cable.

Try this
Method one- with set on, hold down the exit button on the remote for 10 seconds. It will bring up the warning it will reset to the defaults it had when removed from the box and powered up initially. in the warning box it will show the cancel button highlighted initially. press the left arrow to select the reset option. You may end up doing this blind, so you may need to try it a couple times and the only indication of where you are is just a slight flash from part of the screen.
Once that left arrow has been pressed once, the reset option choice changes to "Ok" or "reset", press "enter" The set should
do it's thing to reset and then shutdown.,

Method 2
it should get you into the hotel settings, but you can reset to factory defaults from there, changing any other settings may limit access to the normal settings.
Shut the set off.

The while holding the mute, menu and info buttons, trun the set on while holding them down. If the functions portion of the board is working, it should bring up hotel options menu.

    The next step is to test and replace electrolytics in the 24 volt section of the power supply and check the entire supply board for bad solder connections. These see the greates swings in voltage and load, therefore a marginal capacitor will fail, but with that stated, also check the inverter board electrolytics and the switching transistors used for that very same reason..

What's your problem?


First, make sure this isn't coming from your signal source; these items are not listed in any of the functions described in the manual for your monitor.
If disconnecting, changing or turning off your signal source doesn't get rid of the control item display, try resetting the monitor (maybe the display has some extra firmware features not in the documentation):
  1. Press the Menu button on the side of the monitor.
  2. From the On-Screen Display, navigate to the Setup&Reset menu using the arrow buttons, then press the Source/Select button.
  3. Navigate to "Reset" and select it.
This should restore everything to the factory default setting and get the TV/monitor out of whatever mode it's in.

The brand name Samsung is in the middle of the screen. I wish to remove it and with no manual I do not know what to do. Also there are other messages fliping on and off the screen too.

Again, if your TV does not have a side panel, press the MENU button on the front panel.

I have issues with my unit. Sync problems


Are you sure it's the TV and not the video source ? Have you tried other video sources ? You can also try to switch over to component cable. The red/green/blue colored cable. You only need HDMI for blu-ray to get the 1080p. If your TV is only 1080i then you don't even need to use HDMI. Also, some sources actually look better with a component cable compared to HDMI. Give it shot.

Nothing appears on my LCD TV display

1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on.
2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV
display, including the power cable.
3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower,
right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates
the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV
display is in power save mode.
4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu.
See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information.
5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD
TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test
one device at a time.
6 Connect another device that you know is working properly.
7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.

Problem Possible Solution No sound

1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on
the remote control turns the mute function on and off.
2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you
need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see
"Input Select Menu" on page 24).
3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the
audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio
output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors
match the connectors colors.
4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same
row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on
page 5 for the location of the connectors.
5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For
example, if you are using the composite connector on the
bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector
on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV
Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example,
if you are experiencing the problem using a composite
connector, try using the component connector.
NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the
appropriate cables for that connector. See your device
documentation for a list of supported connections.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
7 Test the device on a different TV.

Samsung LN-TFT-LCD Television


The first time this happened to me, I unplugged the power cable from the back of the TV and then held the power button on the front in for 5 minutes. Its tedious but, it clears the memory out of the TV and should work.
The second time it happened my first method didn't fix the problem.  So try this:
1. Press "MENU" on the remote. If you're problem is the same as mine, then the menu is jumping around very eratically so you'll have to time your button presses accurately.
2. In the  "Picture" Category turn ON: DIGITAL NR, DNie Demo, Film Mode, and Blue Screen.
3. Exit the Menu, and Unplug the Television.
I let my Tv sit for about 2 weeks before I turned it on again, but when I did the "Not Available In Current Mode" message was gone, but replaced with smaller blue message boxes that say DigNR, DNie, and Film.  I then went back into the MENU and turn OFF: DIGITAL NR, DNie Demo, and Film Mode and the problem was gone!
