Samsung LCD TV shimmer problem

Hi, I'm a first time visitor to this site and I'm seeking assistance with a problem. I have a new Samsung 40 inch Bordeaux LCD TV which has a shimmer, i.e. a wave appears to be wafting across the screen. One person has advised me that this could be the result of interference from other pieces of equipment around the TV. The set up includes a BOSE Lifestyle 38 Series III home entertainment unit, a Samsung DVD player and the satellite TV set top box. Also running off the same 6-way power box are the BOSE amplifier and the BOSE base module. Any thoughts, even general observations, are gratefully accepted. Thank you.

Re: Samsung LCD TV shimmer problem

Are you sure this is not an LCD screen door effect, It is a normal thing for this to happen to an LCD TV set. They are not made to be watch too close or you will magnafy this normal effect with the screen. If you have a problem with a new set, dont waist any time and get it service right away as it will cost you a small fortune in the future to have it serviced. Good Luck

have you looked in the owner's manual ?

don't know if this the right one for your set, I think the 40" series all have the same manual. I couldn't download it myself. Also on that webpage you can 'chat' to a Samsung rep. who should be able to give you better directions to the correct instructions

Is it worth to replace the LCD panel ?\ The Replacement LCD panel code is BN95-00604A How to do the LCD panel repleacment

Considering the price of a TV I'd say not.

Did a google search and found this site using BN95-00604A: where they list the part at 565.00 including a 102 core charge which I presume would be returned to you once the core is received. It is unknown if this source is the only source, that this source would actually sell the part to anyone other than authorized service providers, it also doesn't address shipping costs or taxes and damages that may occur in transit. Also from this site, I learned that this part is used in a Samsung UN40ES6100FXZA 40-Inch Led 6100 Series Smart Tv
Here it is on Amazon for 829 with free shipping:

The power on my tv keeps going on and off how can i fix it

Many Samsung LCD panels have a main 'power supply' circuit board, which relies on Capacitors.

If you're technically inclined, take the back off and inspect the cluster of capacitors near the power supply. If any of the capacitors look out of shape, too fat, or burnt at the solder joints, then you've found the fault.

From memory, the most common capacitor to fail, is the large 1000 uF one.

Good luck !

Brand new HD LCD TV. Plugging in components and a prong from a component broke off in the tv. Can I easily fix this or should I seek assistance from a professional?

I would seek the assistance of the Pro..If you do not ( and I don't believe you do ) have the right equipment to extract the male, then you will have more problems and void the warranty.
