HT-X50 lost display

I touched the Volume Control knob and recieved a static charge, the display went blank and will not come back on. The unit works fine except for the display.

This is a Samsung HT-X50 Home Theater System, bought 13 mo ago so no warrenty, of course,

How can i fix this. Samsung wanted $160.60 to fix it.

Thanks, Ronnie

    Thanks, actually I can buy this part at Sears Direct for $21.00 + S&H. Hope it just plugs in and does not need soldering.

The reason they wanted 160.00 dollars was because the static charge very possibly fried something on the mainboard in the unit meaning it needs replaced and there really is no repair for it. Only things you can try and probably already have are to unplug and let sit for 30 minutes or so and try powering it back up.

Sorry this isn't what you were hoping to hear, but if its a component on the mainboard there is nothing you can do but bring it to Samsung for service. Please leave positive feedback if this answers your question.

If you can get Samsung to tell you which board went out, you could order it and install it yourself.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa,

It is due to the faulty electric ic component in the unit.it has to be checked by a meter to locaste the faulty component and replace that.

You shorted out the display with static electricity. so you would need to get a replacement board etc for the device which could cost anywhere from 40 to over 100 dollars.

Carrier infinity thermostat went blank when I touched my finger on the fan button and a static charge jumped from my finger and the screen went blank. All functions are working except the screen.


Every issue I've had with the Infinity has been a strange one. The blank screen is something I've seen and it was just a month ago. But I have no idea how I fixed it. Screen was blank but had the back light illuminated/was green but no numbers or letters displayed. I removed the tstat from its base, checked the pins on the back to see if any were bent or damaged. Tightened all wire terminals. Checked for 24v(present). Reinstalled to its base. Walked to my work truck and downloaded a manual. Walked back inside and the screen was now visable, with all numbers/letters present. I'm guessing I reset it by removing it from its power source? Also, at the indoor units' control wire terminal block, there is an A B C D. And most installers will connect 2 wires in each of these terminals. This is not correct and will give trouble due to a lost connection. You can try to tighten these low voltage terminals A B C D. The correct way to wire is at A, 1 wire is connected. That 1 wire is then connected to the 2 wires with a wirenut. B C D should be in the same way. 2 wires in this 1 terminal WILL lose connection and not communicate with the tstat. If this don't help, the tstat may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

The display is damaged. This is how this series dies. In some cases the receiver still works except you can't see the display. Samsung service center can repair it, nobody else.

$38 part from Sears PartsDirect took about 30 mins to install.  Part # AH92-02673A Ay pcb-front.  There are actually 2 boards to this setup, I went ahead and replaced both but the power button side of the board has some wiring that requires you to remove the disc changer which is only 4 screws and 2 screws for the piece that holds the disc above the reader.
I couldn't find an easy way to get the knob off on the front it required me to force it, nothing borke but your replacing the board anyways..
