SOURCE: blackout problems

It could be the LVDS cable that is connected between the logic main board and the main board, sometimes this cable is too short and comes loose from one of the boards, it could also be a sign that the logic main is going out or the panel itself is shorting out

SOURCE: Samsung LN-T4661F - When I turn the T.V. on, it

In this case, I believe it is the power supply board; more specifically the capacitors are failing. When you have the clicking problem and the long boot up times this has generally been the issue.

When you have video display problems such as shadows and lines that go away after warming up it is usually the LVDS cable and T CONN board going bad.

I had the shadow and line problem and replaced both the cable and board for $120 and that fixed my problem. Since I had the TV apart, I went ahead and replaced the capacitors so I wouldn't run into that later. You can find the parts numbers for the LNT4661F cable and board below. You can find links to you tube ( Part 1 & 2) to show how to replace the capacitors. Good luck.

SOURCE: Samsung 40inch LCD tv doesn't turn on for some

To all who are having power supply issues: Samsung is now acknowledging a problem with the faulty capacitors. I called 1 800 726-7864 and they said they would repair certain out-of-warranty TVs if the problem is related to the capacitors. I just called and they are sending a service rep out to diagnose the problem

SOURCE: Have sound but no picture on Samsung plasma

It's a pretty common problem. The no picture but sound problem is usually the y sustain board. I've replaced 2 on mine now. The 680uf 35V capacitors usually are bulging because one of the power transistors went and took them out. This has happened to both of the y boards I had. One time the failing y board took out the buffer boards too, and once it did not. The fix is super simple and anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of computers or electronics can do the labor yourself. You should do the simple stuff first by just doing a quick test with a multimeter. Just check the power coming to the y board. After that you can just remove the y board by removing 3 cables and like 3 screws. Plug in the new board and it's done! You can source the parts from a place like shopjimmy or discount merchant. 3 boards were like 200 bucks. 1 board is like 100 bucks. Labor took me 15min. Think about that the next time an electronics repair place charges you 1000 dollars. Of course they check everything (Yeah right) and warranty their work (I don't) but if you check the service manual it states that this is the most common repair. Look for the Canadian manual online. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: samsung lnt4042hx/xaa 40in lcd tv wont turn on

I concur with Lightnbaby.... had same problem... my TV LNT4042HX/XAA took 10 min to start sometimes... the capacitors on the power supply board had bubbles on top 4 of them all 10/1000Uf. Samsung wanted to charge $220+ to have a guy come out and fix. J&J parts (samsung vendor) wanted $108 for a new board. I replaced the 4 capacitors for $4.68 and the TV works fine now!!!!!

We have a Samsung Plasma TV we were watching this when the screen just went black we have the audio and all other functions but no picture? Can you help?


Each pixel of a plasma television contains a red, blue and green phosper. These immite a flourescent light individually to produce a nice bright picture. The odds of all of these pixels dying at the same time is so slight, it is likely to never happen before the return of Christ. So your black screen is another problem. There is an ultroviolet light emitting photo that causes these other photons to give off light. My diagnosis without actually inspecting your unit, is that your ultraviolet photon generator needs replacement. These usually last in an excess of ten years so while it may be a costly repair, if you otherwise are happy with your unit, you may want to repair it. Your only other option is to replace it.

Dead Pixels


You cannot fix the bad pixels, it simply means your screen has been damaged OR there was a manufacturing problem (faulty hardware).

The phone should still be under warranty, you need to send it in to be repaired.

Blue snowy pixel areas on my plasma


some of these panels were mis-calibrated from the factory after not aging long enough. Let the TV run for atleast 2 hours and adjust the Vs and Vscan voltages. When it is blue in the left I have found generally the Vs is about 10 volts too high.

The TV should be under warranty. Send back. Sounds like the panel is faulty (half the value of the set).
