Question about Samsung TXR3079 TV

1 Answer

Flashing screen Our power was out for 2 days due to an ice-storm induced power outage. When the power came back on, we turned our Samsung TXR3079 back on, and the screen flashed like a strobe light. After a few hours, it calmed down. Now (a month later) the screen flashes when certain colors, mainly orange or yellow, are present. The problem is getting worse every day, and the TV is almost unwatchable. My manufacturer's warranty expired in January (of course) and I have been in touch with Samsung to try to get some help, without much luck. Should I call a TV repairman, or does this sound like a really big expensive problem that I should try to fight with Samsung about? We originally purchased this model in Nov '05, and had to have a replacement set in Jan '06 when something blew in the back of the TV and it would no longer turn on.

The power compensator IC is bad along with most likley the main board. This is going to be an expensive repair. If the warranty expired in January, and you were in touch with them about then and they did nothing, you should try to fight with them. They may send out a repair person to get your set working again. Another possibility would be, if you have homew owners insurance and a tech can say that the problem was due to a power surge, the insurance will take care of part of the repair bill. Good Luck

We had. n ice storm snow etc. Went thru about 15 times of power outage. The freezer side isnt cooling. Ice maker stopped. I have tried unplugging...plugging back in. Finally got ice maker to turn back on...


you have spent $1395.00 on a machine you hate
most people get rid of it after the first $500.00 bill as new fridges cost around $1000.00 and you get 2 years warranty
smart people with new fangled fridges power them through a quality surge protection device as well

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GET ICEMAKER OUT TO EMPTY IT


TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK!!!!
Why on earth do you think the ice is "contaminated"?
The power outage would have to be days long to do something like that. The ice has to melt and the water has to become warm enough to grow bacteria or mold in a freezer full of frozen items.
If you just let it cycle through, it'll push out the "bad" ice cubes and you can just toss them out. The next ones will be made with fresh water.

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.
