1 Answer

Picture brightens then darkens

Sometimes can turn on tv and work fine for hours, sometimes turn it on and after a few minutes the picture becomes bright white then after a minute or so turns black with purple around the edges. Sound is normal Had tv over a year now. Also when going to video options to try to change the brightness or darkness it suddenly becomes dark.

    Samsung said it needs to be serviced but try unhook the cable and just watch dvds or video games and see if it works still.

Trying with a DVD will rule the tuners in the set in or out and also suggest a setting in the set or a box if used is causing this issue.

SOURCE: When I turn on the tv, the left side of the screen

It sounds like you have a bad slave inverter board. I've fixed a few of them with the same problem and it's always been this board. With the back off of the tv, it will be the board located all the way to the end where the problem is. It will have several wires going from it to the screen. You will probably have to get the part number off of the board to be able to find one, as I couldn't find one by using that model number.

Youy may have bad T-CON, Power supply, LCD panel.

Inside the TV:

Try this when the screen goes black:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Have same problem. Not the proper fix though I found that taking the back off and heating it up with a heat gun for 30 seconds to 1 minute and tv works fine till you shut it off over night.Maybe someone can offer a solution with that in mind. Pretty strange

Picture goes bad (fuzzy&scrolls&lines) on Hitachi projection tv


Sounds like your convergence modules have gone bad. They have 21 close spaced pins to unsolder and resolder. You'll need a soldering iron with a fine point tip and thin gauge solder to do the repairs yourself. Solder bridges between pins are common when soldering these module pins, so have some unsoldering wick handy if you're going to fix it yourself.

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!


It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at www.laptopsforless.com part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)

Hi.
Yes it could be a cooling problem, If your tv has any filters remove & clean them ensure fan can turn freely & that nothing can or is snagging it.
