Question about Samsung TX-R3080WH 30" TV

1 Answer

Dropped TV My flat screen tipped over in the bed of my pickup during transport. It fell from the normal upright position onto the screen side. The screen itself was not scratched or damaged. There is a crack on the border of the top. The TV is made by Samsung and is a 30" wide screen tube HDTV. The problem is the picture cuts off on the left hand side of the screen. It is kind of like picture was move to the left by about an inch. Is there a way it can be recalibrated to fit back onto the screen?

It is called Pincuschion Distortion. There is a pin cuschion correction circuit in the main circuit of your TV, which is composed of an IC and transistors. It is closely related to horizontal output section. Normally the components in this section will heat up during working, and due to this, loose solder points are quite common. Just open your TV, pull out the main board, and locate this section. It can be easly located very near to Line Output Transformer [LOT]. Normally, loose soderings are very difficult to locate as they will be microscopic. So resolder all the suspected points there, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge in between them. This is the first thing we also do in service field. If this doesn't help, replace the Pin distortion IC [normally a small IC with 8 solder terminals], and the pin output transistor, whcih can be located very near to this IC, will be screwed onto a small heatsink. OK

If you take the TV and lay it flat on its face, then you will be able to get the whole back cover off. Once the back cover is removed, and with the TV still on its face, there will be some a large circuit board sticking up in the air from what is normally the bottom of the TV. At this point you may want to tip the TV back onto its bottom (so the screen is showing again). Now, on the right side of the circuit board, near a couple things that look like large batteries sticking up, will be the two IC chips. They are about an inch long and maybe half an inch wide. They are only a couple inches from each other. Hope this helps you locate them.

Hitachi Standard T.V.

Some of the problem could be a weak or damaged picture tube - especially if it encountered rough handling in the move. Other possibilities are bad capacitors in the power supply and deflection circuits which are common with this aged set. No adjustments come to mind that could permanently fix these symptoms.

Dropped TV!!!

Worth fixing? Sorry, probably not. My experience with problems like this are such that the set will keep being repaired as new issues develop. The click and shutdown are a safety feature and are kicking in for a reason. Take what you'd spend on repairs and get a new TV. It will be cheaper in the long run. You might make some $ back by selling the set for parts. Who knows? Hope this helps.
