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?

    When assembling the stand for my Sanyo 32" Flat Screen TV, I inadvertently put the wrong screws into the stand's components. There were two packages of screws, one with three screws and one with four screws, but nothing was included in the instructions as to which screws go where. This resulted in the stand being unstable. Within the first week of owning this tv, it fell over and the screen hit the corner of the table it was sitting on. When I turned the set on, there was an area on the left side of the screen that looked like a jagged streak of lightening and a lot of colored lines running up and down the screen. There is a tiny white spot of light where the point of impact occurred. No damage can be seen when the set is turned off. Is this television destroyed of can it be repaired? Is this something that might be covered by the extended warranty? Where do I take it to have it looked at? So far, I have done nothing but set it on a furniture pad against a wall to protect it from another fall.

Will I damage the refrigerator by laying on side to transport.


Hi csmgen,

It is advisable to avoid laying a refrigerator on its side. The oil in the compressor can flow into the cooling lines when the refrigerator is tipped onto its side. When returned to an upright position, there is a risk that the oil will not completely drain from the cooling lines and the refrigerator will not cool.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Need to transport a Toshiba 43vs9ua 43" TV....can it be laid down on its screen or back for 3 hours??? And if so what is the standing period prior to turning it on?


If this is a tube type TV it should be transported the same way as a Plasma type. Upright. The reason for this is because if the screen is not supported in the centre and evenly across the whole area of the surface, it may break being made of glass and heavy. I normally transport them face toward the side of the van and up against 2" of foam rubber with tie down straps to keep it steady.
There is no standing time before use however, if the climate is different to the transport, (air conditioned and cool but warm in the room it is put in), it is adviseable to let it reach the same temperature avoidind problems with condensation. This normally takes a couple of hours.
Hope that helps.

To transport a loewe spheros 42 plasma unit with rotating stand does the tv unit detach from the stand? I understand that the plasma tv should be transported in an upright position only is this true?


Yes, it should be transported in upright position.
When we moved, our moving company arranged a crating company to crate our Spheros unit. They built a crate around the TV and secured it in an upright position along with the rotating stand. They then put a tilt sensor (you get the serial number of the tilt sensor) to make sure that the moving people don't tilt the crate. They also un-crate it at your destination. The only problem is that the TV is already quite heavy to begin with (~180 lbs), and with the crate, it becomes almost impossible for the movers move it in perfect upright position....though our movers really tried hard.

I am moving and need to lay the fridge on its side, but have been told you cannot do so, is this correct?


You do not want to lay that refrigerator on its side because the refrigerant will leave the compressor and fill the system with liquid refrigerant where it should only be existing in a gaseous state, and if the refrigerator is tilted far enough over or lay-ed onto its side then the refrigerator will have to stand up-right and un-plugged for at least 24 hours before the liquid refrigerant will settle back down where it belongs, and then the refrigerator should actually function again if there was no other damage caused when moving the unit.

I leave Michigan for the entire winter and there is no heat in the house, will below freezing weather hurt my lcd tv. Also can i store the tv in a flat position.


If you mean flat so you can slide it under a bed for example so it's not visible to someone looking through the windows, then that is fine. The easiest way to do it is lay a blanket on the floor, lay the TV onto the blanket on its back and put another blanket over the screen to help keep dust off it, then slide the whole thing under the bed.
The below freezing I cannot comment on, I live in Australia were cold means anything thats not over 30 degreess celcius =)
