Question about Samsung TX-R3080WH 30" TV

4 Answers

I bought my Samsung TX R3080WH, 30 inch tv in Sept of 2005. I thought it would be too early for any problems with it, but after being shut off for 3 days, the picture became distorted and concave at the sides and what really scared me is that when I was standing near my entertainment center, I heard a loud pop and there was smoke coming out from one of the shelves. As a precautionary measaure, Comcast was called and exchanged the DVR but they did not smell smoke from the DVR unit an suggested it had to be the tv. Any ideas on what my problem is? Many thanks, millsstar-1

Most likely a capacitor has failed in the pincushion circuit. This should be a simple repair for any shop. Expect a parts cost in the $10 range.

Sounds like the capacitors in your power supply had burnt out causing to high of a voltage which can cause a threat to other system boards and components. You will need to have your power supply tested firstly.

Simply re solder new caps in place of the ones that have buldged on top

If you have soldering iron and skills you can do it yourself
The parts will only cost you about £2

a TV shop will charge you £80

Samsung TX-R3080WH, tv is less than 2 years old and the picture is too dark to see it. some channels, you can "make out" a picture, but for the most part, channels are black. but you can still hear it.


not sure about this model but it sounds like the backlight has gone out. You can call samsung at 1-800-samsung and they may be able to help or give you the # of the nearest service center.
