TV repairman blew fuses??

I had a repair man come by to take a look at my set and he used a jumper wire to do something I am not sure what I was in the front turning the tv on while he was in the back of it. I heard a loud pop followed by some chioce words from the repair man. he sadi there was some smoke back there and that 3 resistors were blown. I am assuming he blew these. He then said that he could not fix it at my home that it would need to go to the shop and that he would need at least $400 and could not guarentee that would fix the problem. O nthe work order he stated that the IC fuse was open on B+, would that be the flyback??

Re: TV repairman blew fuses??

...repairing any electrical and electronics devices like you said high end television set is in fact no joke to handle and any personnel attempting to fix any internal problems requires a lot of knowlegde and not just guessing.. but because he blew up somthing does not neccessarily mean he blew up the flyback component.

.... for now pal i guess you better find appropriate service center to handle that exact type of television. or the authorized service center in short.. good luck..

Re: TV repairman blew fuses??

Yes maybe ...but he made problems alot worse bypassing your fuse, the fuse is there to blow if you have a short and not harm other components. my guess is that he damaged your power supply and then fixing that youll still have the orginal problem. I think I was the only tech in Houston that could troubleshoot. Sad, but very few good tv men or big screen. we trained are outside guys not to touch much but do slight adjustments and bring it into shop if you dont have a clue and they make some story up to the customer. good luck

Hello, I have been having power problems with my Samsung FPT5084 50" plasma for the past year. I know what the problem is,m just don't know how to fix it. My TV keeps blowing fuses. I bought 10 12A 250V...

I would have maintenance from your building come out or the electric company and put a monitor on the 110v line into your apartment to make sure the ground strap is not coming loose in which your voltage will rise in excess of 150 volts.
As far as I see, your AC line fuse is only a 6 amp. Why are you using a 12 amp? If you have a circuit board ID number of the fuse your replacing, that would be helpful. I know of no Plasma set that uses a 12 amp fuse, not even old heavy current draw sets of yester year. You can e-mail me at

My tv will not come on and sparks when i plug it in

If it sparks when plugged in that means the main fuse in the tv is not blown. If there was sorting wrong with the tv and you saw sparks the fuse should blow. If the fuse blew you will not see sparks anymore and the set will not come on. But if the fuse did not blow one of the following can be the cause.

1. A short in the line cord, check you plug and wire to make sure there are no breaks in the wire.
2. Sparking can be from a bad outlet, a plug that is not making good connection can cause sparking, try plugging in to another outlet if it still sparks check the prongs and make sure they are not blackened.

No sound

So your sound doesn't work for TV now or while watching a movie? Can you try using audio out on TV to connect to other audio source? I wouldn't think that the audio coming in from TV would stop working, but if audio signal works through TV then the speakers are blown, maybe there is a fuse internally that blew, or both speakers blew at the same time, which is more unlikely. If you are comfortable removing cover, do so and check fuses and for other signs of failure like burn spots or melted solder. Please comment on the results. Also, with cover off, speakers can usually be accessed, so try testing them with another audio source. If speakers still work than TV audio is the problem, and could be difficult to replace on your own, but might be worth repairman. Of course, easier solution is to buy cheap receiver and speakers, I can almost gaurantee that would work. But always keep the receipts anyways ;)
hope this helps.

Samsung HLP4663W color wheel replacement

When I removed the jumper wire the screen color problems I experienced after changing the color wheel were fixed completely. I did not need to reset the CCA values (which came with my color wheel, on a separate sticker). If you have a black bracket blocking access to the jumper wire, as I did, you can access the jumper wire by removing the fan shown just to the left of the yellow and white sticker; there are two screws attaching the fan to the chassis below it. Next, remove the two screws that hold the silver clamshell (the housing for the circuit board) halves together. These screws are right behind where the fan just was, on either side of the protruding fins. They each have a spring under the screw head. You can then pull the visible half of the silver housing forward (with the bracket attached). You will then have access to the entire circuit board. Look for CN810 - it is located right behind where that bracket just was when it was all put together. Pull the tiny black plastic part (that has the jumper wire) off of the pins. Then reassemble the housing and put the fan back on.

No red in picture

If this happened at the same rime that the repairman replaced the IC's in the set, I would say he is responsible to repair this problem. I would tend to think that the red picture tube socket is loose, or the repairman pulled a cable or connector loose, unless he turned on the set while something on the chassis was touching something else and blew something out. Good Luck

Power Problem

Most often this problem is caused by convergence ic's. STK392-110. Sometimes cause is vert. i.c. Also, many times it is from bad solder connections on circuit board. In any case, short of unplugging unit to reset, there's not much you can do without help from repairman.By(1)removing rear cover,(2) unscrewing 2 screws holding chassis in and(3) undo all clips and wire ties holding wiring in place. Small board on (R) side is conv. Slide entire chassis towards you. Remove 3 screws from small conv. board.Remove and mark 5 plugs and 4 black jumper plugs to free board. Look at bottom of board for rings around solder joints at pins of main amps.(STK392-110). Resolder or replace amps and reinstall board. Reconnect 4 jumpers and 5 plugs in same order. Power up unit and hit magic focus. This is most common repair.
