Question about Televison & Video
I have purchased a pre-owned Samsung Syncmaster 241MP Flat Panel TV (a super tv when it came out in the late 1990's). I can get sound but no picture. I believe it is an NTSC tv. Is there a fault or will it not work in the UK? Does it need some kind of extras/conversion. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Flat panel TV's typically do not have "bulbs," but rather backlighting. Plasma displays are especially touchy during movement. I would suggest checking your warranty status, as it's probably not something you can easily repair. If you wanted to take on the repair yourself, be careful not to lay down the screen, as it will drastically shorten the life of the Plasma display. I would start with checking the system boards for possible damage, since you did hear a "click," It was probably a fuse, chip, etc.

No sound and a digital picture. i will assume you have no signal on analog rf cable. Thomson(RCA) have been having problem with these sets. The trouble stems from the digital cuircit board. We see alot of these. You used to get the digital board.. they are not availble.. so rca found the component on these that fail.. A VERY SMALL surface mounted fuse. With a lighted magnifer and some fine tip twezzers. we replace these fuses on these boards. Do you have any soldering experence..

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

Sounds like the digital control board, 6871qch038a Lg Digital Control Module subs to 6871qch038c. But that's just a first something I would check in this unit. Replace also capacitor C19, 630V big blue square cap very common failure for no video. You might want to shop this one thee are a host of problems with this unit that would certainly get some needed attention if a qualified tech were testing it and looked up the bulletins.
