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 !!

Put your ear by the switch on the tv switch it on and off a couple of times if you hear a crackle its probable the switch its self, they always seem to go on these LCD tv i have one my self i had the same problem but i knew when i heard the crackling i new it was the switch shorting the circuit so i just took the back off the tv makng sure i didnt lose any screws located the switch cut the switch out and just wired it straight through it didnt cost nothing only electrical tap. anyway i cut the switch linked the brown wire to the blue wire twice then i places electrical tap around the wires now you will see it working. all you have to do now is just turn it off at the wall or keep on stand by.

try listening for the crackleon the switcha at the bottom of the tv

I would venture to say it is the power supply first. Capacitors in LCD power supply's frequently go bad after a year or two. LCD displays very seldom go bad and I have not seen one kill a set completely.

I got multiple thin colors on the middle of the screen


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display issue (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further updates will be on my Facebook page.

PC to TV HDMI poor text quality


You get best picture on any LCD monitor or TV when the PC video resolution is set to the native resolution of the monitor or TV. You need to look at your user manual to find out what the native resolution is in PC mode.

Tv wont turn on, geen light flickjers but goes back to red and does ot turn on, i unplugged tv while it was on by accident.


The main board and or power supply is seeing a problem is shutting down the TV.
The cause for your issue could be the power supply, main board, and or the drive board(s) that drive the plasma screen. Sorry, but to trouble shoot that issue would require some TV tools and knowledge of electronics.
Perhaps the following can help you with a warranty repair.
1. If your TV was purchased from January 1 2008 to today---The TV does have a 1 year warranty on parts/ labor and a 2 year warranty on just the plasma screen.
2. If your TV was purchased before January 1 2008---The TV does have a 2 year warranty on parts/ labor and a 2 year warranty on just the plasma screen.
I hope this information has helped you.
Good Luck.

Samsung LCD LA32R81B getting reset automatically every 1/2 hour


Your TV is in Shop Mode, its optimised for usage in a shop. People mess with the settings all day long, so when in shop mode, if you go to standby it wipes all the settings everytime.

You need to re-enable Home mode, to do this go back to the DTV menu and find the option PLUG and PLAY on the 1st with the cog icon.

Enjoy!
