Samsung hln617wx/xxa: color starts to blink or flicker after about ten minutes

My tv started acting up today. It started to flicker, kinda like there was a loose connection or something. I unplugged the tv, but after about 15-20 minutes, it started to flicker again. I put a fan right near the rear exhuast, but it still goes T.U. No lights on the front, temp and lamp are fine consistently. Appreciate any help, late. P

I have same problem. I saw on msg board that I should replace the color wheel. I can't believe how poor these tv's are. Samsung should replace or credit all of us for the pieces of expensive poo.

8/25/07 Coincidentally, I have just run into the same problem. I spoke with Technical Service at Samsung yesterday and after 15 minutes on the phone they couldn't tell me what was causing it. I then did numerous web searches and came across a sight where technical experts discuss problems. Turns out it may be a problem with the Digital board, the A/V Board or the DMD board. Cost for repair (depending on which board it is) will run $400 - $1,000 or more. Repair man is coming out Monday to diagnose the set.

I have a 32" RCA LCD tv , rlc3210 power input says


Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

My 32inch lcd tv keeps flickering it started all the sudden


TRY THIS

    • 1 Turn the TV off with the front-mounted power button, not the remote. Unplug the TV's power cord from the wall outlet. Let an hour pass before plugging the cord back into the wall outlet. Turn the TV back on with the front-mounted power button and wait until it has fully restarted. Bring up a TV channel to see if the image being presented on the LCD screen is no longer flickering. A momentary power surge can cause the circuitry inside the LG-brand LCD TV to function erratically.
    • 2 Unplug the video cable from the video connection on the back or side panel of the LG TV. If more than one video cable is connected to the TV, disconnect all of them. Disconnect the other end of the video cable from the video source device that it's attached to -- a DVD or Blu-ray player, or a satellite receiver or cable box. Blow off the connections on the video source device and on the back or side panel of the TV with bursts of compressed air. Reinsert one end of the video cable into the video source device and the other end into the video input that it was connected to. Turn the TV back on with is remote to see if the picture is now free of flickering. A loose or partially connected video cable can cause the LCD TV's screen to flicker when presenting an image.
    • 3 Turn the TV off and unplug its power cord from the wall outlet. Place a power conditioner next to the wall outlet. Plug the power conditioner's power cord into the wall outlet. Plug the TV's power cord into one of the AC sockets on the power conditioner. Turn the power conditioner on. Turn the TV on to see if the picture is now free of flickering. The RF signals in the electric line that the LG TV is drawing power from can cause flicking through interference patterns being generated.

Rca 42in full hd lcd picture flickers


If the picture on your TV flickers, there may be a simple fix. Here are some possible answers and suggested solutions:

1. Your set-top box may need a simple reboot. Unplug the power connection to the set-top box for about 30 seconds. Reconnect the power and turn the set-top box back on.

2. Check all of your cables for a loose connection by tightening each one with your fingers.Flickers can sometimes be caused by bends in rigid cables, too.

3. If your picture flickers to a black or blue screen, you could have a bad set-top box. Contact your cable or satellite service provider about installing a new one.

4. If you still have audio, the flickering could also mean that you have a failing backlight.

For additional troubleshooting information, check out the chart at TV flickering for more solutions. I hope this helps!

Today my tv's video iss flickering some times it goes to the static but mostly its lines going up the tv screen changing the colors to black and white sepia or looks like and old VHS vido thats way old...


It could be a loose connection on one of the input lines. try a dvd player plugged right into the tv. If the problem still is there then it is not the signal its the TV itself. if the dvd player looks ok then the bad signal could be from the converter box or something else on the line infront of the input signal

I just bought a 55 Inch Rear Projection HD Mitsubishi TV. 2002 model year. It appeared to work fine yesterday at the guys house before I bought it then I brought it home and I have a flickering going on....


It's not a banged-out connection, something is wrong with the analog inputs (and only them, the rest of the tv is ok) - probably caused by a faulty capacitor either in the corresponding power line or the signal path itself, normal problem for a tv of that age. You will gonna have to open it and see where the problem is.

TV picture flickers


If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection. Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too. Stargazer
