Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Samsung 32" LCD (LA32R81B) is as good as dead

Hi,

I have a Samsung 32" LCD (LA32R81B) purchased in January 2008. Exactly 16 days more than a year the LCD just died no picture no sound. Which means LCD is 16 days beyond warranty period of 1yr and i am left with no choice but be ridden by what Samsung says.

Well when i wrote a complain and got it checked by Samsung Technician, i was told on day 1 that power PCB is gone and cost to replace would be rs. 6000/- INR. But the same technician on day 2 came and rechecked and mentioned that power is ok but the LCD panel (screen) is gone and cost to replace would be rs. 30,000/- INR.
On arguing with Samsung they agreed to give 50% discount and sent me a official quote of rs. 25,000/- INR and discount of 50% on it so it accounts to rs. 13,000/- INR. Not sure how rs. 30,000/- suddenly got reduced to rs. 25,000/- INR when they sent an official note.

Now since i suspect that i am been taken for a ride, so i got the LCD looked over by a local technician, and he vouched that power PCB is an issue and not the panel.
Now i am confused whether the local technician is capable of handling LCD issues or is he right and is Samsung duping me?

Appreciate expert guidance !!

Hi, First, you took it to two techs who could look at it, didn't like what either had to say and now you want an opinion from someone who can't look at it? Obviously troubleshooting it long distance is out of the question, so you want a business opinion. OK - So, If I were you, here is how I would look at it. The manufacturer agreed to work with you and you have it in writing based on a diagnosis from one of their trained techs. You do not have to pay for any repair before it is done. Let them fix it and when they tell you it is ready, have them turn it on for you before you pay for it or leave the shop. You are also entitled to any parts that were replaced as you paid for them. If it is not fixed or they indicate there was another problem or more cost you can refuse and go back to Samsung for a remedy. There are laws in most countries to protect consumers from this kind of thing. Good Luck to you!

My Samsung LCD model number LN-S4041D takes up to five minutes to come on, it keeps cliking or cycling like it wants to power on. I puchased this TV January 2007. Thanks Greg


This is acommon fault in the power supply - replace 2or4 capacitors 1000uF 10v withe 1000uF 16 or 25V.They are located on the main power board (middle board on chassis )the caps are located upper right of that board and they appesr bulged at the top (compared to the others near by) Caution Some of the larger caps may still hold acharge.

FLYBACK Transformer for APex 32'' Model #PF3230 Flat Part #BSC 70Y


Its not worth the repair if you still want to go ahead i need to know two things:
Are you going to have a qualified electronics technician fit it?
If you are planning to fit it yourself are you a qualified electronics technician?
If you answered no to both of these questions i cannot tell you where to get one or how to fit it due to the massive amounts of danger involved.

Tv went dead


Sounds like it could be H.O.T which stands for horizontal output transistor or a fuse is possible. Another possibility is the FLYBACK transformer. Is there a local repair facility you could take it too? Keep me posted. Have a good day...Jay

Flashing screen


The power compensator IC is bad along with most likley the main board. This is going to be an expensive repair. If the warranty expired in January, and you were in touch with them about then and they did nothing, you should try to fight with them. They may send out a repair person to get your set working again. Another possibility would be, if you have homew owners insurance and a tech can say that the problem was due to a power surge, the insurance will take care of part of the repair bill. Good Luck
