Question about Samsung DynaFlat TX-P3076WH 30" TV

1 Answer

Picture has rolled up leaving a black bar on the bottom

On a 4 year old Samsung 30" hdtv. I have the power off problem, but when I do get it to stay on there is a wide, black bar at the bottom of the picture which is really the picture moved up toward the top of the screen. It starts out wide and gets smaller throughout the day and yesterday it disappeared altogether. Today there is a small black bar at the bottom remaining. In watching a football game with the score being shown in a top corner, the team which is on the top has its name cut off. These would seem to be two unrelated problems, but when the tv is first turned on before it turns itself off, the picture is whole and complete. TIA

Greeeting from Belize you are having a problem either with cold solder or a problem in the power supply those lines are hum bars due to a defected filter cap.resolder your power supply if that does not solve the problem then you replace the power supply you can get a power supply kit from in florida.good luck.also make check in the vertical section if you cannot do it your self take it to a qualified tech to resolve your problem this should cost you about $75.00. to get it fix.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.

You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.

Samsung TX-R3080WH, tv is less than 2 years old and the picture is too dark to see it. some channels, you can "make out" a picture, but for the most part, channels are black. but you can still hear it.

not sure about this model but it sounds like the backlight has gone out. You can call samsung at 1-800-samsung and they may be able to help or give you the # of the nearest service center.

My TX is about 14 year old. The picture alwasy was excellent until we had an exlectrical storm that knocked out the cable box to the TV. With a new cable box the TV works. The picture has excellent color,...

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

Picture on 15 year old Trintron comes on briefly then goes black

if the sound goes out its not a tube problem . a bad tube would have no effect on the sound .you problem (my guess) is in the power supply . a modern tv power supply has parts of it that stay on all the time unpluging it is not the problem its when you plug it in ! the power supply gets a JOLT . you might get away with it ,you might not . thats why we install surge arrestors on power plugs and with expensive tvs i recomend a UPS a power unit that keeps the tv powered even wnen the line power is out . thats keeps everthing in the sets nice and even ,so the tv lasts longer ... a modern tv turned off uses about 1.40 in electric a YEAR in standby mode , so what are you saveing if you send you set to the landfill early and have to buy a new one ? over 1.40 in electric ? . turn down you water heater or something else simple dont be blowing out you electronics for the sake of a few cents ..... good luck .... if this answer helped please rate a 3 or 4 , this high rateing will hepl keep me in the paid answer department . thank you
