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.

The screen has colored vertical lines and becomes to a dark black band about 6 inches of width.The tv is exactly two years old by today.


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (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 solution 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.

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!

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


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!
