Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

Samsung 40 INCH TFT-LCD Cant start up at all .

Hello , I have a Samsung LE-40S61BX TV .
I bought it around 6 months ago .Never had any problems with it except one time when a purple vertical line appeared in the middle of the screen (I just touched it and it was gone )

I cant forget to say that i've been usin it aLOT this year and it was many hrs open .

Anyway , I left for christmas vacation for 25days and when i got back and into the house i tried to open it and there was the major problem .
It could not Open . It Just did the sounds of opening . (Not the melody ..just the ''chik chik'' sounds )
Well, the first time that happened , the chik chik sounds lasted for like 3mins and then i heard the greeting melody and it finally opened .
Ever since WHENEVER i close the TV , i regret it later when i try to open it again .

Every time the chik chik sounds lasted longer and longer . Now the TV hasnt opened for 2 days and all i hear are those DAMN CHIK CHIK sounds ... :(

I Called Samsung and they told me to contact the local authorized Technician . I contacted him and he told me that he cant pick up my TV except friday when he only ued to make deliveries and stuff .

Those chik chik sounds seem like there is something burnt or sth.
Anyway , did anyone experience sth like that before ?
I really need to know what to do coz there is a big game and im tryin to get to watch it and open my tv by tomorrow night . .

Any help or thoughts from u guys would be much Appreciated .

The noise you are hearing is the power supply attempting to start up. Unfortunately, a component has failed inside the power supply circuit. Most likely it is a capacitor. The good news is that the set should still be under warranty and the repair should not cost you anything. The bad news, is that the service person may not have a replacement power supply board with him/her when he/she arrives. This should be a quick fix as the replacement board is relatively easy to change.

sound like you have samsungs dlp white spots plague, which just gets worst. samsung are aware of the problem, so you need to get in touch under the warranty.

Hello light_tt,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: What you are seeing is the result of a bad video display board.
Just because we buy products new, doesn't mean they are exempt from defects. Hence why there is a warranty provided.
I recommend you use your warranty, and return this product for a replacement.

Have a great day!

I have a ln-s3238d that i got a couple years ago. Last month it started getting a line of pixels running across the top of the screen. over the last month that problem has gron to four lines on top and...

Hi andrew, its not a big problem.. Decent TV. but the pixels are DEAD. that means you have to recover them by fixing the LCD. this would cost you around £40-60 for a 32 inch TV. hope this helps!

It sounds like you have a Power Supply Board problem. The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.

Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.

Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen

yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.
For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. LCD screens really break easily as you know.
