Question about Samsung TXE2045 20" TV
TV must warm up before tuning channels 2-6. Only snow + loud static on channels 7-22. Do I need to replace the tuner?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, not yet but could be after test/diagnosis. Initially, you must first determine for the presence/absence of the variable 33VDC tuning voltage. This voltage varies depending on what channel is tuned into thereby setting the VCO (voltage controlled oscillator). In some instances, it could be a faulty/leaked capacitor in the 33V supply or even a zener diode. Faulty capacitors are easily identified by bulging top (normally flat), blistered/split casing, brownish paper within the immediate surrounding, rubber bottom partially out and/or powdery residue on one of the pins. The diode is tested like any semiconductor, forward and reverse bias.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
