Question about Samsung TXM1967 19" TV

1 Answer

A black box appears on the screen

A black box covering almost the entire area of the screen appears at sometimes regular; sometimes irregular intervals. some evenings it never appears; other evenings it will apppear occassionally; still other times it will appear at exactly 20 seconds intervals. I can remove the box by tapping any button on the remote. twenty seconds later it returns. audio is fine. this occurs only on channel 36. No other set I own does this. Why the local channel 36 station would transmit a black box on its signal and only be picked up by this set is a mystery.

Re: a black box appears on the screen

The close caption feature most be on and you need to disable it to get rid of the black box,the close caption must be set in any mode for the box to come up,maybe text1 or text2.Go thru the menu options until you get to the CC feature,some remotes have a key to bring it up and disable it.Let us know if you need more information.

Picture does not fill the screen

Check the main output voltage (B+) from its SMPS regulator side. If this voltage is lesser than normal, picture won't fill the entire screen. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be good to check the capacitor on the +B voltage that goes to the power section in the main board. A filter capacitor of about 47mF/160 V can be defective.
Next check the capacitor on the HT line to the grid-22mf/250V replace.
If possible loop on capacitors in the horizontal section particulary the IC.
Now the tip I can offer:
If the fault occurs on heating shcek out htis area to confirm and isolate the component.
But finally I understand that when you press any key the picture is good.If so check the memory IC/cmos IC in this section for logic control, it might be having a switching fault, a conflict or the video noise is coming on in default but goes off in the data selection mode. Do a soldering around this section on the IC , capacitor and see if the fault goes off or becomes irregular when this section is heated, if so there is a semiconductor producing this noise error .
So start from the begining so that we have a clean voltage inside.
I hope my advice helps.

Black Box on the screen

It sounds like a text box that isn't receiving any text. If it covers almost the entire screen, then you might have accidentally got the settings into DEMO mode. It could also be a box for closed captioning, but that usually covers just the lower part of the screen. Either way, the solution is to go into the setup menu and restore facotry presets.

Black bar on screen

The text mode in the closed caption is turned on.Turn off the closed caption. I don't have the schematic in front of me, so, I will wing it. There may be a button on the remote that says CC, if so then use that button to turn it off, if not then go to the service menu and you may have to search a bit. Either way it's an easy fix and you can do it yourself. If you can't find it, then, reply and I will give better instructions when I get into my shop next week.
