Question about Samsung PCL541R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung PCL542r TV. Picture does not come on?

I was given this TV b/c the previous owner just wanted to make room for his new one that he bought instead of fixing this one. I just don't want to end up spending a bunch of money fixing older technology if it is not worth it. If it only costs $200 bucks or so to fix then I want to keep it, if it is more then I might as well save up for a NEW TV. I was told that this one should just need new bulbs? Can you help me determine if that is true and how much it would cost if it is as simple as that? The "product" line does not have the PCL542r as an option on the PC541r...if there is a difference please make a note of that...

Hey brian this is sava8420 and you asked me to clarify what I was saying I thought was wrong with my pcl542.  Well the flyback is probably one of the most common failures that I have read about in projection tv's.  For our model the new part is updated and costs about $80.  If you have removed the back lower center cover, you will see on the main circuit board a black componet that looks like it has a spark plug wire coming out of it.  Well that is the flyback.  It requires some soldering skills to replace and I wouldn't recommend doing yourself unless you have background in tv repair and know the proper safety measures you need to take.  Should be able to have repaired for right around $200.  Just get a quote for diagnosis and tell them not to fix until you have given the go ahead.

What is the difference between samsung 60J6200 and 60UJ6200 ?


Consumers in the market for a brand new flat screen TV that has all of the latest features for 2015 should consider the Samsung JU6400 series. This 4K resolution UHDTV is one of the best currently offered by the industry-leading brand. The JU6400 offers the same quality picture and sound that Samsung TVs are known for, with several new features that make this model a must-have for any TV enthusiast. Smart Stats

Like its predecessors such as the J6200 and the J6300, this model offers the same LCD flat screen panel for a crystal-clear viewing experience. However, there are several variants in the features for the JU6400 that will make it a worthwhile upgrade from the traditional Full HDTV. 4K Ultra HD resolution is offered on every TV in this series which provides the best possible resolution available today. Other new additions include the Micro Dimming Pro feature which allows the TV to fine tune the image by adjusting the cells in the LCD display. This provides the viewer with perfect lightness and darkness levels on the screen for a true-to-life image.

The Smart TV platform for the JU6400 series is powered by the Tizen operating system. This new update for 2015 provides owners with a complete overhaul from the previous Samsung Smart TV interface. New features include the full Samsung App store that offers access to today's hottest applications such as Facebook, Amazon Prime and Netflix. The menu and browsing options are also much easier to access and use than those offered on previous Smart TV models.

While the Samsung JU6400 is an exceptional option for anyone who wants to purchase a model with better resolution and more futuristic features, it does not include some of the latest features offered by the brand. Innovative extras such as the Smart Control remote and the new Curved screen design are not offered in this particular series. 8.0Great

It is the ideal upgrade for those who are new to Smart TV features and provides a crystal clear image with 4K UHD resolution making it perfect for those who enjoy watching high-definition movies and live events. While you can expect to receive many high-quality features with this higher-end TV model, consumers should be aware of the fact that some of the most recent extras currently available on newer Samsung TV models are not offered on TVs available through this series. Yet for the avid viewer who simply wants a good upgrade, this TV is an excellent choice. I hope this helps answer your question Evgeny.
