Question about Samsung SPN4235 42 in. Plasma HDTV

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

Sony Grand Vega TV model KDF-55E2000 red light keeps blinking.


This is a common problem with these models. There is a round heat sensing capacitor that has gone bad. Your TV is probably mounted on a wall and didn't have enough space to cool properly. Remember, modern electronics are like computers... prefer a cool environment. You will need to get the schematic and locate the small round disc shaped capacitor on the main board and replace it using neat, minimalist soldering technique. Do not use a high powered soldering gun... a 25 watt soldering pencil iron will work fine.

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

50" philips won't power on. get the 4x red blink led light


i have fixed 3 of this tv, with that exact problem in the last 2 weeks, needs a power supply, you can try to unplug it again, plug it in, hit the power button, as soon as it turns green, unplug it again, after 15 seconds , plug it back in, if power doesnt turn on by itself, turn it on, if it turns red again, emediatily hit power again, may have to hit power a few times in a row, but most of the time you can get it to come on this way, once it is on, it should run ok, until you turn it back off, but not a fix, needs power board

Buzzing sound then dead


Most likely power supply is dead,but there is a small chance that the power cord has been burnt out.If your TV is wall mounted or left very little room behind the tv to allow it to"breath",that could happen.
So,stop by Fry's to get a power cord and replace yours and see if that works or not.If not,it is time for a repairman to do his/her work.You are right,it is not cheap.
Next brand:New Pioneer KURO plasma tv,case closed!Reliable,and top of the line.

No Signal sign


Hello Dollyer,
The first thing i need to know is how the TV is hook up. Do you have it hook up to HDMI, component, or just regular composite (Yellow, Red and White cables). This is very important info for me. What about your DVD player, do you still get a picture from that source. Please let me know

Best Regards
