Question about Samsung SPN4235 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

SPN4235 TV -- red light blinks but picture doesnt come on.

Hi. My SPN4235 TV fell from my wall last week. It must have been mounted incorrectly or something. So, now the screen appears to have some cracks, and the TV when turned on flashes the red LED light several times and then the TV attempts to turn on it seems. It just softly buzzes -- no picture, not even a glow. Looking closely at the screen it appears as if the glass infront of the actual screen is the only thing damaged. Or is that actually the screen? Is it possible that its another component instead? Maybe I need to replace a buffer board or something and just the glass covering the screen?

Let me know.

Thanks

I have a sharp aquos tv model lc-32m400x. When i turn the power on via button at the back the green light comes on for about 10secs then turns to red and flashes about every 11/2 - 2secs. Any ideas.


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board...

Black screen, green light on the bottom is on, electric plug is on house plug, no picture, was working fine last night, now only black screen!


Do a hard reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, check and replace its main digital board. It will be faulty.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.
