Re: no picture

Kennyo, A no picture symptom could be quite a number of things from SMPS failure to SMPS-POD to SMPS-DC board to oneof the main boards. The service manual for this unit has a comprehensive set of tests to preform to narrow down the failure. I have it and would be glad to send it to you. Email me privately. Good Luck Bill

Ur tv buffer boards are dead,the X or Z is dead.Could be also both boards are dead too.Yes,this tv should be cover under ur extended warrenty,if it still under in effect,read ur contract years end date.

My brand new Samsung LA40c650L1F won't turn on. The power light keeps on flashing. No picture no sound. It really sucks. Here I am with my new TV and it won't start.

Since the unit is within the 1 year warranty, you should call 1-800-samsung to set up repair with an authorized service center. I would recommend talking to samsung about an extended warranty also.

The tv popped and I now have no picture and no song

probably blew the power supply board, very common problem. call 1-800-samsung, if warranty expired recently,and you complain about it they will probably extend the warranty for this problem.

Loud pop and lost picture sound stay on and works ok what poped??

OH YEA. I saw a lot of these when they first came out. What happens normally is the x or y drive boards, possibly both, short and cause a major pop in doing so. Sometimes it can be so violent that the power supply gets wacked as well. I hope you have extended warranty. This can get real expensive. By the way, LG manufactured that set.

No picture only sound

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty with some type of extended purchase plan, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

No video/picture

Solution is to get it fixed (hopefully under warranty).

I have the same issue after owning the Vizio 42" LCD for just 5 months. They are coming to replace the part this week. I will also be purchasing the extended warranty as well, to avoid this problem in the future.

Try to adjust the Vscan or/and Vs down about 5-10V on the Power Supply board. If you got extended warranty, just let the warranty depot shop help you to do it.

For the "humming" noise, may need to replace the Power Supply board to fix it.

You should go to the audio menu and make sure your not in the SAP(Second Audio Program) mode. also check around at the other features in that audio menu. If still does not work, there is a 3 year warranty on this model. Call up where you bought it and find out who to call for service. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.
