By crystal I would assume they perhaps meant a pixel on the display and that basically cannot be repaired cheaply (would require a new screen). However, if they were basically giving away the tV and you could ignore the flaw (there would probably be a small black dot that would never change) it might be worth a look.

I dropped the tv, it's not bad, but it needs repair. My question is is it the TV panel or LED light? There's discoloration at the top running down the screen, like water dripping. Any help, thanks!!


If it looks like liquid dripping you broke the liquid crystal Display display, otherwise known as the LCD. This is probably the most expensive part of your TV. You can look into getting it fixed but it's probably cheaper to buy a new one. Alternatively if you can find someone selling the exact same model with a broken back light then you could swap out the LCD... But that would require a fair level of electrical skills.

On the other hand, If you had broken the backlight then the picture would be very dim on one side, or completely black (but shining a flashlight would enable you to see the image on the screen to some extent).

You might be able to sell the broken TV on craigslist for maybe about $50 (total guess here, check around for going prices)... But due to the weight it probably would only be worthwhile to sell it if someone could pick it up ... So eBay wouldn't really be an option.

What is the difference between samsung 60J6200 and 60UJ6200 ?


Consumers in the market for a brand new flat screen TV that has all of the latest features for 2015 should consider the Samsung JU6400 series. This 4K resolution UHDTV is one of the best currently offered by the industry-leading brand. The JU6400 offers the same quality picture and sound that Samsung TVs are known for, with several new features that make this model a must-have for any TV enthusiast. Smart Stats

The UN40JU6400 price is: 16% above LG 40? TVs avg. price

We also suggest:
  1. 40? JU6500 is 14% cheaper
  2. More advanced 40? JU7500 is 60% more expensive


Like its predecessors such as the J6200 and the J6300, this model offers the same LCD flat screen panel for a crystal-clear viewing experience. However, there are several variants in the features for the JU6400 that will make it a worthwhile upgrade from the traditional Full HDTV. 4K Ultra HD resolution is offered on every TV in this series which provides the best possible resolution available today. Other new additions include the Micro Dimming Pro feature which allows the TV to fine tune the image by adjusting the cells in the LCD display. This provides the viewer with perfect lightness and darkness levels on the screen for a true-to-life image.

The Smart TV platform for the JU6400 series is powered by the Tizen operating system. This new update for 2015 provides owners with a complete overhaul from the previous Samsung Smart TV interface. New features include the full Samsung App store that offers access to today's hottest applications such as Facebook, Amazon Prime and Netflix. The menu and browsing options are also much easier to access and use than those offered on previous Smart TV models.

While the Samsung JU6400 is an exceptional option for anyone who wants to purchase a model with better resolution and more futuristic features, it does not include some of the latest features offered by the brand. Innovative extras such as the Smart Control remote and the new Curved screen design are not offered in this particular series. 8.0Great

It is the ideal upgrade for those who are new to Smart TV features and provides a crystal clear image with 4K UHD resolution making it perfect for those who enjoy watching high-definition movies and live events.

Yet for the avid viewer who simply wants a good upgrade, this TV is an excellent choice. I hope this helps answer your question Evgeny.

My Samsung 1080/had one vertical line on screen and one morning TV went black, turned off. praying we can fix ourselves


Without testing the components this can be a variety of things.
It could be the power inverter board which drives the lcd screen itself.
It could be a bad mainboard which controls the entire tv.
In either instance, the cost of replacement parts are often higher then the total cost of the tv.
Todays electronics are designed to be thrown away (not something I agree with at all)
The last inverter board I replaced cost over $300.00, the only reason the customer paid for the part, was the tv was no longer manufactured in the size they wanted.

If you still wish to repair the tv yourself, you may want to contact samsung support, so you can at least work out which part exactly is damaged, you will need a Philips head screw driver, Digital Multi-meter, and a general understanding of electricity. Also make sure you have ample room to take apart the tv and place each component in a safe location so to reduce further damage.

Where to sell broken Samsung LN37B550 TV for parts?? about 1/4 of the screen does not show, rest is still good.


I just inquired about how much a pawn shop would give me for a WORKING TV and it was a joke,so much that I found a needy family and gave it to them instead rather than have jerks triple their money.I do not know if a TV shop would even want to give $ for a broken TV or not but i would start there first.If they do not want it,they may have a suggestion of who might.Have you checked out repair possibilities?It sounds like 1 of 2 componenets are bad.Either the screen(less likely)or the picture emitter/projector.I am not sure of the part name as I have not worked on TV's since flat screens came out but it basically is an emitter which sends a voltage to the liquid crystal and displays on a secondary screen.I say less likely the screen because it is a completely sealed unit and if the liquid crystal were leaking,it would seem that the screen would be completely no picture by now.Good luck!

Can i repair a broken screen on a lcd tv?


LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. It is all one unit and when broken can not be repaired. The only way to fix it would be to purchase a replacement screen but that would probably cost more than replacing the whole TV. You might look for a used TV of the same model with a good screen and a bad circuit board and exchange parts but it is far easier to replace circuit boards than LCD screens so if you find a similiar model with a bad circuit board take the good board from your set to make the one with the good screen work again.

My 37" tv


This is a dead pixel. This pixel represents one liquid crystal which is failing for some reason.

There is no way to repair liquid crystals.

If you purchased the TV new today, return it and get a new one. If it is still under warranty, then do a warranty return.

LC-37D4U Sound Problems


I used your site to look up a problem awhile back and was helped by a guy who went by, Les Price (missiontracetv@msn.com).

I purchased a Sharp LC-26D4U LCD television and after about 16 month, the sound went on the TV. I could not get anything but popping noises out of the speakers. I hooked the TV up to a stereo and the sound worked only while using the stereo speaker from the stereo, still nothing from the TV speakers.
I searched this problem on your web site and saw a posting in which this Les Price (missiontracetv@msn.com) posted a fix. He stated this unit had a chronic problem with the insulator material used on the heat sink on the ic’s on the AV bd. He stated the unit had to be disassembled and the av bd removed. He stated the insulation on the ic 2502 breaks down and must be cleaned off and that a new insulator, part # PSPAZA663WJKZ must be ordered and used as the insulator pad. He stated there was a Sharp Technical bulletin LCDTV-194, which explained the problem and suggested this fix.
I Goggled the suggested part #, PSPAZA663WJKZ finding and ordering the part from www.electronics-storefront.com. I got a copy of the service bulletin, which had pictures and instructions on the repair.
On 25-Jan-09, I disassembled the TV, removing the back, a metal mount under the plastic back, and three circuit boards, locating the heat sink on the back of the AV board. I left the black sticky residue on the heat sink as the service bulletin suggested and installed the new insulator pad as shown on the service bulletin. I put the TV back together and found the TV volume to work again. I could not believe it worked.
Taking the TV apart made me a little nervous. I am not a repairman, however I do like to, “Tinker” with stuff. There were a lot of screws and wires to keep track of and a little tricky to put back together. If I had to do it again, I would either video tape the disassembly to make sure I replaced everything back the way it was, or at least take a few photos while disassembling.
I just wanted to say thanks for your web site and thanks to Les Price for his help. You both saved me some cash.
