Question about Samsung 50" Slim-Depth DLP HDTV

3 Answers

Samsung DLP tv w/ black picture will not power off.

I have two major problems with my Samsung 50" DLP. First problem is when the TV is working I have green horizontal lines over about 1/2 to 3/4 of the screen. When I shake the tv the lines disappear for a few minutes. Then the problem returns. However recenlty the tv has turned off by itself. I have unplugged the tv and it has reset itself but now it simply will not come on at all. Has this tv gone to tv heaven or can it be fixed. It is about 3 year old. I have replaced the bulb just last October and the picture was fine for a number of months and the bulb does not now appear to be the problem. Help

A repair will cost between $200 and $300.

Definitively worth the repair.

    For about $ 200 you can have a convergence IC replacement (ICs from $7.99 to $15) or a repair job at component level, with no expensive parts included. For about $300/$350 replacement of whole convergence board or PSU board, both parts usually below $100.

    If the fault concerns optical group, then the cost can be much higher than that, but that kind of faults (eg. light engine) are less commonly causing this symptoms.

    if you want parts price you can enter model number on websites below, add from $120 to $250 (depending on repairer and on time spent) labor price.

    I forgot to mention the HT transformer (ballast board), if that was the problem you would get no raster, or sudden shut down, with light turning off erratically, I do not think this is the case.

Hi

If you were advised to replace the DMD board then you will be charged around $300-$350 however replacing the lamp will be more expensive around $400-$450. You can contact Samsung and also please click on this link to find your local repair center.

Yes I am afraid it has to be repaired by a TV technician. The issue which can cause this problem are
1 HT transformer which boosts the voltage supplied to the CRT to approx 11 KV.
2 Either the Horizontal IC or the vertical IC needs replacement(most probably the horizontal IC
3 other accessories near this HT circuit like Capacitor also may need replacement since the TV has tried its best(with your helpful kicks) to cope up with this voltage problem and as heat increase, chances of soldering melting and causing loose connections, which now does not make any contact, thus refusing to switch on.

If you have practical experience in repairing TV sets and also possess a multi-meter you could have had a try, but insufficient experience leads to more problems. My firm advice is to get it checked by their authorized service center, and obtain a guarantee on the part replaced............sodeep

    I would always go for a samsung service point because as I had mentioned that if the HT transformer and associated IC's then at least you will get a service warranty on any major part(as mentioned above) that they replace. & its repairable. Look up in the net for the nearest Samsung service ceneter in your city, because I live in INDIA and have no clue which will be closest to you in your city/locality.................sudeep

    I really won't have any idea what it costs in your place but you could always ring up customer care, describe your TV's status and they should be able to give you a realistic estimate. If they say that the Tube/display panel needs replacement, then it will never be cost effective. I hope this pointer will help in making your decision.........sodeep

Samsung dlp tv picture turns off sound stays on


Hello
Check whether the lamp life hours are going to be out. Refer to its user manual for details. DLP chips fault is very rare; unless you have handled them very carefully. Check the lamp and BALLAST baord that supplies voltage to lamp.
Picture of the ballast baord to your TV is attached.2_29_2012_10_35_36_am.jpg
