Question about Ultra LCD30-500 Television

3 Answers

I have the ultra 40 lcd tv same problems.

My ultra is 4 years old and . I've tried everything the previous answers suggested except i couldn't figure how to remove the back to get to the inverter and scrape the connectors after i removed the stand and speakers and all the screws on the back it doesn't open. The power adapter comes on and the fan runs but could it still be the problem? and if it is where do i get one. I have taken it to a local repair shop that kept it 2 weeks and didn't have any luck . Perhaps the suggestion to junk it may be the easiest thing to do but I keep hoping it might be worth it to keep trying since it cost almost 3gr. I miss my HD and larger screen.

    last repairman said it probably was the media box. called every number I could find. No luck

    jack: I'm still not sure what the problem is. I do know finding any part for this and according to a lot of people most lcd tv's are unpredictable and if you find the parts cost to much to fix. But I still hope to find a media box for mine if it is the problem. So for now I will hold on to the power supply and who knows it could go bad at anytime. I would like to buy another flat screen tv but i may stay with my 9 year old analog general electric.

    jack: I had the same experience as you did with pww. Also I paid the same price for my Ultra from hsn. What a waste.

    I don't really understand what you are saying is wrong with your TV,,,BUT if you can't get it fixed.I am in need for a POWER Adaptor for the Ultra 40 inch LCD40-500 HDTV...The adaptor no. is this the unit you have ? If so , and if the power supply is working, I would like to buy the power supply ,

Do not really have a solution for Ultra 40: but I have one with a bad power supply, no luck in fixing it or finding another, but you may wonder why power supply went bad, overload from something bad in rest of Tv.?

I think anyone will be very lucky to find ANY parts anywhere for these Ultra tvs. PWW Service in Richmond, BC Canada ( 604-821-9918 ) has parts and the power supply...BUT they never answer the phone or return messages...( their web site is no good either, ).after about two weeks of calling PWW.. the guy told me they were no longer allowed to ship parts across the border to the US.
I took my power supply to electronic & Tv repair shop a week ago, he still has it and told me yesterday they can't do anything without a schematic..That I can find anywhere either!
I hate to junk the tv ,I give $2,499 for it... TV works fine ! just need the power supply !

At this time I gave up on getting the back off and took it to another repair shop on 4/17. He said there would be no charge to take a look at it. He also said his experience was that 3 to 4 years was usually the life of most of the flat screen tv's and probably would cost hundreds of dollars and then something else could go bad. Waiting to see if he will have a cost effective solution.

currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture 1/3 of the area I'm shooting. That is everything in the lower 2/3 of the screen is black. I've tried a couple of lenses with no avail. Viewing previous pics is not a problem, so this is obviously not a screen problem. I'm thinking something with the mirrors? Any suggestionns

Red colour appearing on screen

Your tv could have one of several faults. None of which are to be tackled by anyone except a qualified engineer due to the electric shock hazard.the first problem could be the crt (tube) the second could be the componets on crt base circuit board ie resistors or ic.
With a tv 9 years old it may not be economical to carry out a reair.

3 year old Samsung 40 inch LCD TV will not turn on

The problem is 4 capacitors on the power supply board. Just had mine done under warranty. They (Sears) replaced the whole power board but you can get larger capacitors and just replace those for alot cheaper if not under warranty.

No picture on Samsung LNS4051D HD TV.

Maybe the backlight is out, can you see a picture when shining a flashlight on the screen. if yes you have either a bad inverter power supply or bad screen (panel).

Change TV viewing channel to 3 or 4. If this works your VCR's output channel got changed during storm. If this is the case, review previous answers to prblems with this VCR.
