Question about Samsung LN-S4692D 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have the 50' pedestal model HLR5087w model tv blacks out sound no picture after about 15 minutes. Have changed bulb and same problem. Hired a tech and he told me it was the colorwheel. After it came in, he installed the wheel and had the same problem. He then said it was the main board but i don't thrust his judgment now to the tune of 475.00.Can anyone give advice. Jeff

    Do you get sound when the picture goes out for 15 minutes? Does the TV itself go out or just the picture?

It sounds to me that is would be the ColorWheel. I did some research your TV and the ColorWheel has been replaced on that TV a lot! Hope this Helps!

    Hey Jeff,
    I am still working on your issue. I am working very well and am getting some information. I work so I am not always on this site. I am sorry for the delay. Why are you rating this as "Inappropriate"? I have not given up on your issue and like I said, I'm still working on it.

    OK I am sorry to inform you that I cannot find any other information. I would tell you to replace the main board, but that does not sound like that would cause the problem because you are still getting sound. I will continue to look for something that goes wrong with your Model TV and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Hitachi 50V500, no picture ,sounds for about 15 sec.then goes off


I would try to re-seat the lamp. Pull the lamp out, check it to see if it may have gone bad again, then put it back in to make sure the contacts are connected. Before applying power, unplug the TV for 5 minute, and then plug in/turn it on.

Most lamps, if bad from the factory, will go out within 3 months of use. It does happen, and happens more often than you would think.

Try this, and see what happens. Good luck.

Samsung tv settings

it depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.

The TV should be under warranty. Send back. Sounds like the panel is faulty (half the value of the set).
