I have done some research and found a notorious cap and diode problem with this set. The two 4700uf caps (C14113 and C14115) on the DM1 power board (the board to the left of the sat. box when you look at the set from the back) are under rated and will eventually fail. When these caps fail they tend to take out diode CR14105. This may be your problem. If it is, you can replace the caps with 4700uf 25V 105c and the same as original diode.

The power supply regulator board to your tV should be troubleshooted. Sometimes, it might have to be replaced as card basis. Seek tech support.

Hi i am a retired engineer but have a samsung sp50l7hxx all these models have the same fault -overheating -causing no picture with sound , then reset and stays ok for up to 1 hour to many engineers...


Hi,
Since you are an engineer (electronic i hope) most electrolytic capacitors have a temprature rating.
I noticed this on a replacement board my local repair shop offered me. 85deg C on mine vs 105deg C on the replacement boards.
What I did on mine was to replace them all with the same uF value and same voltage, but with a higher temperature rating.
I also added 2 small fans in the case, and tapped it from the 12V supply. (I used VGA card fans from my local PC shop)
It solved my problem. If you are comfortable doing this you should have a working solution, alternatively you can ask you local TV HiFi shop do do this too. Was a lot cheaper than replacing the boards.
Hope this can help you too.

Hello brattbabie1,

Ok you have sound and no picture. This denotes that since this is a plasma TV the circuitry that controls the activation of the screen may have become defective. You will need the schematic to show the voltage levels that need to be present on the cable that connects between the screen and the control circuit and a voltmeter to measure those voltages. I would suggest that you get a qualified TV technician to work on this problem, due to the technical nature of this issue.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

If you still can see the DirecTV guide and menu, the problem could be on your satellite receiver and not the TV. Unplug your receiver and plug it back.
If the rebooting did not work, I would suggest to swap the satellites receivers and see if it works.
Good Luck.

No Picture


This is quite often a dodgy connection

Check that all leads and scart cables are in correctly
