Question about Samsung Televison & Video
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.
