Samsung projection tv

Hi i bought a 46" Samsung HL-S4676S projection tv and have had it for 3 and a half months, and now i cannot use it....the picture is all distorted! for example, when you change channels and on the top left corner displays a little box showing the channel number youre on, well that box is tripled...same things goes for whatever is diplayed on the screen! super bummed about it since i cant afford to buy a whole new one, im hopin i will be able to fix it....does this sound like my tv is toast?

Re: samsung projection tv

Unplug it and plug it in again. This worked for me and I have a very similar problem occasionally. Turning the power off and on with the remote will not work.

Hello, my parents bought a Samsung LNT4671F 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD TV about two years ago unfortunately me and my brother cracked the screen about 3 months after we have not fixed it. Me and my brother...

It is beyond any reasonable repair---screen unit is called a display panel and the most expensive part in the set---cost of this would (just the part) be more than a brand new set.

Let it go, some people do sell sets damaged like this on EBAY for parts.....

I bought my 46" samsung

The Capacitors on the Main Power PCB are failing which is why it's taking 3 attempts for them to charge before the TV will switch on.

These could be replaced for a few $ if you know someone with the technical ability and equipment.

Failing this it would require a new PCB at around $120 + fitting.

Samsung LCD 46 inch half of the screen is darker than the other half.

Hi, while fixing another persons lcd tv i used lower rated power supply to try to fire up the tv ( picture-no sound) the bulbs ( actually cold cathode fluorescent ) lit up but only halfway. So sounds like the power supply for your backlight has gotten weak. You may try a workaround I've used on personal equipment, try turning down brightness on tv-this may,if your lucky, even out the brightness. hope this helped. Prodzilla
