Re: tv switches itself off then back on again

It seems that the back light is malfunctioning or needs to be replaced the fact that it turns off after a few seconds indicates that is getting over heated. All LCDs, Plasmas and Projection TVs come with a shut off switch witch will turn of the monitor when a spike on the temperature is detected this is to protect the system from overheating. Now before you think about send it for repair; is it well ventilated? Does air circulates around it? Good luck!

The capitors on the back might be bad this I have fixed on these tv's many times. That could be one of the problems and the capitors are on the power board inside the tv.

How do i manually get rid of the coloured lines on the side of my 40inch lcd samsung tv

Vertical colored lines indicate there is a problem with the unit. This could be caused by a bad T/Con board, main board, LVDS cable or the lcd panel itself. I had to replace a panel last week for this problem at a cost of around $800.00 since it was out of warranty. You can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

Tv switches itself off then back on again


If the tv set is still under warantee get it sorted before gtee runs out.

The problem is caused by cummunication error between ATV Micom and DTV Micom.

To correct this problem requires going in to service mode to make changes & updating the DTV firmware.

This will need to be done by a proffesional.
