Question about Samsung HLN467W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No sound or picture

When I turn on my Samsung tv, I'm able to access the menu screen, but there is no picture or sound. I know that the speakers work, as I've tested them. On another post, the solution was something like the MICOM doesn't work. Any suggestions? And...I have no idea what a MICOM is.

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

How do I fix samsung tv no picture just sound

Since you have replaced the LED board and you can still see a faint menu screen, this would indicate the LEDs have blown! Replace the backlight LEDs.

Problems can often occur with even relatively new Samsung LCD, LED Television. Some customers report their screen going black shortly after turning on the television, and flickering picture even though the TV's speakers continue to produce sound. You can test and rule out a number of things before concluding that your TV has a hardware defect.
First, check the input settings of your television. Often, users will experience a dark screen when first turning on their television if the selected input corresponds with a turned-off or unplugged input, such as a gaming system or DVD player. If the problem persists, try reconnecting all cables on the back or sides of the television. It's possible that one of your cables has gone dead. If you have access to other cables, try swapping these in and see if the problem persists. Some customers report that turning the television off and unplugging it for an extended period of time, up to 24 hours, can fix the black-screen issue. Samsung TV - Power Supply Issues If you've tried all of these suggestions and problems persist, it's possible that the power supply inside the television is defective or broken. The power supply for most Samsung LCD, LED televisions will cost around $150, with labor costs of around $250. Unless you have a fair amount of TV repair expertise, this is probably not the sort of repair you'd attempt yourself.

We just got a new cable box and now the Picture works but no sound. The volume is not muted on the tv or cable box. We've tried connecting the cable box three different ways and still get the same...

Does say a dvd player give sound when connected to the same input? If you have determined that the source is good and the speakers are turned on in the menu then I would replace the main board.

I have a 37 inch sansui flat screen television model # HDLCD 3700. The sound just quit working; the picture is fine? Is thier any trouble shooting that can be done?

Please unplug TV from AC wall socket for couple of minutes, replug back in and turn it On and check sound.
If problem still exist, check internal speakers are enable / ON in Menu.
If speakers are ON and yet no sound, then need to check sound at Audio Out jacks at back of TV, hook audio cable (white-red rca pins) in audio out jack in TV and receiver/ amplifier to get TV sound in receiver/ amplifier speakers. This is a test/ check and you can use it to get TV sound through receiver speakers.
And if still no sound in audio out jacks in TV then TV needs main board replacement. Check with local TV repair shop for that.

I have a plasma Samsung with picture but no sound

Internal sound board/amp is probably bad. But make sure that the speakers were not turned off in the sound settings menu for the television. You could try hooking up and external reciever to the audio output jacks of the TV and see if you get any audio from there. If you do at least you can still get sound from your tv...even though it is not from the internal speakers.
